Commencement of Term 4 Co-curricular Activities

Welcome back to Term 4 and we have now commenced the new summer season for 2022-23. The training schedule has been sent to all students and parents/carers. Please also note that all Year Groups are labelled by their 2023 cohorts (Year 10 are now Opens; Year 7 are now Year 8).

All fixtures and any changes to training due to weather or other events will only be posted via the Waverley College App. All students and parents/carers need to ensure that they have subscribed to the relevant activities, and we have our first round of fixtures this coming weekend.

We are still finalising teams and good attitude and performance will be considered when adjusting selections. Please also note that any leave requests from sport are only via email to myself please.

Basketball Staff and Players

Thank you to all of our Basketball staff and players who gave up a number of days during the holidays to continue to prepare for this summer season.

Representation at the Highest Levels

We also had a number of students and Old Boys continuing to represent at the highest levels. Well done to Zion Poitaha and Ollie Aboud who are currently representing NSW Gen Ble U16 Rugby, as well as Old Boys Clem Halaholo, Fritz Jahnke-Tavana, Charlie Worthington and Aaron Dimovitch for representing NSW Gen Blue U19.

We also had Isaac Heeney and Nick Blakey playing for the Swans in the AFL Grand Final at the end of last term.

As well we had Ky Pule in Year 11 representing Australian Schoolboys rugby in Japan, where he was also lucky enough to watch Old Boy Ben Donaldson playing for Australia A.
