From the Director of the Junior School, Anthony Banboukjian
Prayer for the Week
As we continue on our Lenten journey this week let us pray:
God of infinite love,
I thank you for this reminder of your love and your call that we be more patient, gentle and compassionate with others.
Here in the second week of Lent, I turn to you to beg for your help. Please soften my heart and help me to let go of judging others.
I ask you this, in Jesus’ name.
St Mary of the Cross: Pray for Us
Blessed Edmund Rice: Pray for Us
Live Jesus in Our Hearts: Forever
Sometimes things don’t always work out the way we have them planned. Sometimes buses are late or trains get cancelled and it is important that the boys have a ‘Plan B’ and know what to do in case this happens. Over the past few weeks we have had a number of students quite upset because mum or dad were running late and they had no idea of what they should do. Please sit down and discuss an alternative plan with your son just in case something happens.
Last week of summer Saturday sport for Term 1
This Saturday sees all our Junior School teams play their last game of the term. As usual the participation although limited due to the weather has been great and the sportsmanship first class – well-done boys.
Please note this is also the last week of training for all summer teams this term.
Over the last week or so a number of boys have been selected to represent the College at trials for both CIS AFL and IPSHA Football.
The following boys traveled down to Canberra to trial for the CIS AFL Team:
- Zac Trosti
- Finn Backlund
- Nicholas Anderson
- Jackson Macaulay
- Nate Smith
- Liam Gabriel
Congratulations to Nicholas and Jackson who will compete for CIS in the upcoming PSSA Carnival. Nate has been selected as a shadow player for the squad.
The following boys traveled headed off to Knox on Monday hoping to make the IPSHA Team for the CIS Football selection carnival:
- Charles Hely-Hammond
- Stan Wilson
- Elliott Kerr
- Benjamin Leet
- Bellino Testafedda
- Antonio Rizzo
Congratulations to Antonio on his selection in the IPSHA.
A great effort from all the boys involved.
Well done to Elliot Wilson and his brother Connor (year 8) have so far raised $428 for The World’s Greatest Shave – a terrific effort.
Congratulations to Campbell Porteus (Yr 5) who won a gold medal in the Under 11 Beach Relay team last Saturday at the State Nippers carnival. This is the second year in a row this team has won the gold medal. A great achievement Campbell.
If anyone has photos from Saturday sport or any other Waverley College event that they would like to share with the rest of the College community, could I ask you to send them in on a disk or memory stick to the Junior School office.
