Round 1 of Winter Activities
Welcome back to all students, parents and carers to Term 2, and the commencement of our full winter activities program. We have our first full round of co-curricular fixtures this weekend.
Congratulations to our Cadet Unit who proudly represented us at the Coogee and Waverley Council Services on Tuesday for ANZAC Day, and at our own school service on Monday.
Thank you to all students who have engaged in all training sessions this week and during the holidays in preparation for the upcoming winter co-curricular fixtures. A reminder to all parents/carers and students, that selections are not final and remain fluid for the entire season. Coaches will continue to make selections and changes after this weekend. All students are also required to reserve the fixture following their own, where appropriate.
Expected Protocols and CAS Code of Conduct
It is essential that all students are fully attired in the correct playing gear, and that they arrive at each fixture a minimum of 30 minutes prior to the start of each match.
Any student who requires leave for a weekend fixture, must ensure that a request is submitted as early as possible before a weekend. Any absence due to injury or illness will require a medical certificate.
When students are supporting the 1sts or other teams, they should be dressed in full PE sports uniform or school uniform.
A reminder to all students that the school hoodies can only be worn to training and sporting fixtures and must not be worn at any time whilst at school. The College PE jacket and hoodie are at no stage to be worn with academic attire.
All players, parents/carers and spectators are reminded about the importance of sportsmanship and respect for the opposition and officials. All stakeholders are bound by the CAS Codes of Conduct for respect of officials and the opposition, and must follow staff instructions at each venue.
A big thank you to all the students, staff and coaches involved in a wide range of activities over the holidays. We had training and activities for Volleyball, AFL, Track & Field, Cadets and the Rugby and Football tour to Japan. Many students and staff gave up a lot of hours in their holidays in preparation for Term 2.
