Two More Rounds of Summer to go
Waverley hosted local rivals Cranbrook in a number of fixtures last weekend. The Friday evening 1sts and 2nds Basketball was very well attended, and whilst the results did not go our way, the spirit and support was fantastic.
One of the highlights was the Year 8 Rock Band playing a Bon Jovi cover at half time in the 1sts, and they were outstanding. Thanks to these students, Mr Jesse Johnson and the Music Department for their impressive work with this.
Our Swim Squad also competed at the annual Christian Brothers Carnival where we successfully won the overall shield. This was a tremendous effort considering we had so many students competing over the weekend at the State Nippers, State Oztag, State Athletics and Metropolitan Swimming Titles.
Well done to those students at the Carnival, as well as all the students competing in a range of State competitions.

Final Home Round Hosting Trinity and Thank Yous
This week, we have our final home round hosting Trinity Grammar School. We are once again playing on Friday evening for Basketball, and any supporters must be in full summer uniform.
I also want to wish all Year 12 students the very best for their final home match, and also thank all of their parents/carers, particularly those who always assist with BBQs, lunches, canteens and functions.
Please Support Our Presentation Evenings – Aquatics, Basketball and Cricket
We also have a number of Presentation Evenings coming up for Aquatics, Basketball and Cricket and we hope to see as many members of the College community at these as possible.
Good luck to all activities this weekend!
