Australian Schools Rugby Luncheon

First Week of Winter Trials

Well done to all students and coaches on a really positive start to the winter season last week. Our 1sts and As Football teams played in the CAS Blitz and we had some impressive results that hopefully indicate a successful season in Football. Our AFL, Rugby, Tennis and Volleyball teams also looked excellent.

For the final week of Term there will be training only on Monday and Tuesday, with school finishing on Wednesday, 5 April.

In terms of selections, we will continue to adjust teams over the season and no teams are yet finalised. If a student is disappointed with their selection, we certainly encourage them to have a conversation with the Convenor or Coach, and ask what they need to work on. We do not select teams based on reputation or external representative teams. Good application, attendance, attitude and sportsmanship are some of the essential qualities coaches are looking at.

Australian Schools Rugby Luncheon

Last Friday, we had a number of parents, carers, students and staff attend the Australian Schools Rugby Luncheon as a fundraiser for the national tournament and representative teams. Felix Turinui, Ky Pule, Zion Poitaha and Jonas Dowling represented Waverley to the highest standards, and were also lucky enough to sit down with the newly-appointed Wallabies coach, Eddie Jones.

Cadet Unit to AFX

Best wishes to our Cadet Unit and Year 9 as they head off this week to Holsworthy for the annual AFX camp. I know the staff have been working very hard to make this a wonderful experience and standards of behaviour need to be exceptional at all times.

Good luck to all students with their trials this weekend.
