CAS Swimming and Diving and Commencement of the Winter Season

Last Thursday our Years 8, 11 and a number of Year 12 students attended the CAS Swimming and Diving Championships to support the Waverley squads. The support and behaviour of our students was exemplary and a huge thank you to the students, staff and parents/carers that attended to support on the night.

2024 CAS Swimming & Diving Championships

Waverley finished 5th in Swimming and 4th in the Diving. Special mention to James Wynyard and Darcy Dawson in the Diving who have both qualified for CIS as well as giving Waverley the most points we have ever secured at the Diving Championships.

Hugo Binder’s win in the U12 Freestyle was one of the performances on the night, as well as the excellent performances of our two Year 5 swimmers Kai Hess and Jack Forde.

Basketball, Cricket and Aquatics Presentation Evenings

We also held our Basketball, Cricket and Aquatics presentation evenings over the past week and a huge thank you to the various Supporters’ Groups and parents/carers for their efforts in making these evenings happen.

Well done also to all of those award winners. We will recognise all award winners in our summer co-curricular awards assembly on Thursday, 4 April 2024 and parents/carers are welcome to attend.

Winter Season Reminders

This week we commenced our winter season and all students are to be reminded of the following:

  • Attendance at training sessions is compulsory and correct attire must be worn
  • Always assume training is on regardless of the weather forecast – the College will notify the community if there are cancellations
  • Any weekend leave requests must be in writing to myself with as much notice as possible and a maximum of two exemptions per year will be granted
  • Absences due to illness or injury can be notified via the Parent Portal on the College App but require a medical certificate
  • Selections are ongoing and are based on performance, attitude, attendance and application
  • Parents/carers are not to approach coaches directly but are to speak to Convenors if they have any questions or concerns.

Good luck to all students and staff with the first round of trials this weekend.

Do You Need a Mouthguard Fitted for the Upcoming Winter Season?

In 2024 Waverley College is partnering with Guard Up Mouthguards as our provider from the commencement of the Winter Season. These mouthguards are worn by notable names in both professional Rugby, AFL, and US College Football.

The mouthguards are fitted using laser scanning technology and are 3D printed to ensure an exact and customisable fit, and can be produced and replaced in a much shorter timeframe and at a much lower cost when compared with a traditional fitted mouthguard. Those with Private Health cover may also receive a rebate on their purchase, dependent on their cover.

If you are interested in having a mouthguard fitted for the upcoming Winter Season, please complete the Expression of Interest form HERE.

Numbers will be finalised on Wednesday, 27 March 2024.
