Summer Co-curricular Leaders
This week, we recognised students who were successful in selection for 1sts teams for summer, as well as students selected as Captains in their activities. These students have demonstrated the commitment and application required to be recognised at this level, and we will continue to work with them to ensure they are role models for younger students in their chosen activities.

Last weekend, we had a number of teams playing trials and fixtures, and some of the highlights included our first round of Water Polo fixtures in the new St Catherine’s Aquatic Centre; our 10As Cricket outstanding performance against Knox; our 1sts Touch Football in a 7-7 draw with a strong Newington team, as well as our 2nds Touch Football with a narrow victory. Our 1sts Cricket went down narrowly to Knox, but put in a strong showing against one of the strong sides.
A huge congratulations also to our Cadet CAS Military Skills Competitors who were successful with an impressive and well-prepared victory. Congratulations also to all of the staff of these members of the Unit, for the countless hours put in, leading up to this famous win.
We also had a number of students competing at the State Oztag championships, and well done to all players representing their regions.
This weekend is the first full round of fixtures against Knox and St Aloysius’. We will continue to re-select teams over the first couple of rounds due to the impact of the weather, and thank you in advance to all students and parents for their patience with this.
Appreciation to Year 12 Parents and Carers in Supporters’ Groups
I also want to say a huge thank you to those Year 12 parents/carers who will be stepping away from their roles within some of the sporting Supporters’ Groups, as well as those parents who have put their hands up to step into those roles. These parents/carers are critical in the delivery of hospitality and Presentation Evenings, as well as raising much-needed funds. There is always a great sense of community and connectedness, and we are always needing more parents/carers to be involved.
Old Boys’ Achievements
Well done to some of the Waverley Old Boys from 2021 playing for NSW and ACT Rugby on the weekend, as well as Sam Talakai, Ben Donaldson and Jed Holloway on their selections for the Wallabies Spring Tour to Europe.
