Track & Field News
The Waverley College Track & Field team performed strongly last Saturday at Homebush, and there were a number of impressive results, particularly in our younger age groups.
There are still some gaps we need to fill leading up to the CAS Championships on 15 September, and we really need some of our older students to step up to make themselves available for events like Middle Distance, Hurdles and some of the other field events. If we can perform well in these areas, and have our strongest athletes, we will go very well.
House Athletics Carnival – ES Marks
Next Monday is the College House Athletics carnival at ES Marks. There will be buses that depart the College at 8:15am and return by 3pm. However, students are encouraged to make their own way to and from the carnival.
Parents are welcome to attend, but please note that surrounding parking is challenging, and there is no parking on site. Students making their own way to the venue will need to arrive at 8:30am and the carnival concludes at 2:30pm.
We will run the Opens 3km and Javelin from 8:30am for any student who wishes to participate in those events.
In the case of rain, we will notify the community by 7am and the day would then revert to a normal school day.
Please note that there are NO canteen facilities, and students are required to bring their own lunch and snacks.
Invitational Athletics – ES Marks
On Saturday, 27 August, Waverley are hosting the invitational athletics also at ES Marks, and will require some parent assistance with some of the events on the day please.

Congratulations Debating Teams and Notable Win for 1sts Debating
I also want to congratulate our Debating Teams and especially our 1sts who secured a notable win against Knox last Friday evening.
We also had a number of boys playing in various club finals over the weekend, and it was exciting to see Waverley students doing so well.
Good luck to our Athletics squad this Saturday at ES Marks.
