First Full Round of CAS Fixtures

Last weekend saw our first full round of CAS fixtures for this winter. We had some impressive results as well as a few heartbreaking losses, as is the nature of schoolboy sport. It was great to see a number of players and staff ensuring enjoyment for all players, with good sportsmanship in many games.

Our next round of sport is on Saturday, 18 June against Knox Grammar, and this will be a season-defining round for many teams. As next week is a short week, we need to ensure all students are meeting their full requirements for training, in preparing for these matches.

Cosi Production and Piano Competition a Resounding Success!

Well done to all cast and crew for the Cosi production this week, which was a resounding success. Congratulations also to Ms Alison Jinga and Mr Peter Lamb for all their hard work in producing such a high-quality Drama showcase.

Congratulations to the 23 student pianists who bravely stepped up to the Piano Competition challenge in the PAC Recital Room this week. There were many excellent performances. Thank you to Ms Keiran Kossenberg, Mr Chris Balkizas, Ms Jaz Dolso and the music department, for their organisation of this annual event.

More information about these colourful and expressive performances will appear in next week’s edition of Nurrunga.

Annual Passing Out Parade and Dinner

Well done also to all of the Cadet Unit staff and students for their efforts in the annual Passing Out Parade and dinner, and congratulations to all award winners.

Cyclists Rylan Short and Will Heffernen Will Head to Europe

We have a number of students that continue to shine. Ryland Short and Will Heffernen (Year 12), have been selected as Australian and NSW Cycling representatives to travel to Europe, to compete for TWC Maaslandster Zuid-Limberg in the prestigious road race circuits. For these junior riders to achieve this is an amazing success, and we wish these young men well.

House Carnival Update

Unfortunately, we have recently been informed that ES Marks will not be ready for our scheduled house Athletics Carnival on 23 June. We are currently investigating alternatives, and will communicate an update as soon as we can.

I want to wish all students who are competing this weekend at the State Club rugby Championships – don’t get injured!

Enjoy a weekend off!
