End of Term 2

The weather has been a very unfortunate theme this term and we finished the term with a number of washouts. We did play a few fixtures including a hearbreaking loss to Cranbrook in both 1sts Football and 1sts Volleyball, however, our 1sts, 2nds, 3rds and 16A’s rugby all had excellent wins. Despite the weather we had a hardy number of supporters at these fixtures and a big thank you to those parents and students that came to support. I also just want to remind all of our community of processes around any complaints at any co-curricular fixture. Parents and supporters should not be contacting opposition schools directly but should be coming through the College’s leadership Team instead and we will contact the opposition school on your behalf to ensure the complaint is directed to the correct personnel for an appropriate response.

A massive congratulations to James Peate on his victory in the NSW Public Speaking Championships. James will now represent the College at the National titles in Hobart early next term. Thank you also to the students and staff that supported James and this is the first time a Waverley student has won this prestigious event.

Congratulations James!
