Week 4 of Summer Co-curricular Activities

Waverley hosted St Aloysius’ in our first full Summer home round last weekend, and we had some excellent results as well as some disappointments that come with playing sport.

The 1sts Basketball 109-107 win in double overtime was a great lesson in perseverance.

The 1st XI Cricket were also just as impressive, with the 10th wicket partnership between Conor Andrews and Toby McDonald for around 70 runs, one the highlights, along with Matthew Frost’s 4 wickets.

Our 2nds Basketball are two from two, and I also want to congratulate Will Livissianis on his outstanding 114no for the 9As Cricket team.

Our 1sts Water Polo played their first ever home game at St Catherine’s on the weekend, and despite narrowly losing to Riverview, gave a strong account.

Congratulations also to Josh Ballard (Year 9), recently selected in the Australian U15 Oztag side.

Behavioural and Uniform Expectations

This week we are away to Cranbrook, and I want to remind all students and spectators of the expectations, particularly around uniform.

Any students wanting to attend the Friday night fixture for 1sts and 2nds Basketball at the new Cranbrook Gym, will only be permitted entry if they are in full summer College uniform.

Any students who are supporting on Saturdays, can be either in full uniform or full Waverley sports attire.

We also need to ensure we are supporting Waverley players only, and not engaging with the opposition.

Old Boy Achievements

It is great to see Waverley Old Boys continue to shine in a number of areas, including 2022 1st XV Captain AJ Preketes, who recently played for the Rebels against the U19 Waratahs.

We also recently have a number of Old Boys playing in the Rugby League World Cup, including Davvy Moale for the Cook Islands, and Luca Morretti for Italy.

Waverley Old Boys continue to do us proud. L to R: Clem Halaholo, Charlie Worthington, AJ Preketes and Fritz Jahnke-Tavana

Let’s Finish Strong

With only a couple of weeks of summer activities to go, it is really important for all students to finish the year strong. I encourage all students to continue working on their fitness and skills in the upcoming holidays, ready to go for the start of the 2023 College year.
