Good luck Year 12 

On behalf of the College Community, we wish our 2021 Year 12 cohort all the very best with their HSC examinations that start next Tuesday. The students have certainly had a very tough two years of Senior School in having to work around the implications of the pandemic. They have however worked very hard and maintained their focus throughout this challenging time. I am sure all of their hard work will pay off and we hope they can achieve their best. 

Orientation Day 

The College has run two Orientation Mornings online over the last week for our new Year 5 students and for all students entering Year 7. These are important touch points to assist in their preparation for their start at Waverley and joining our community. Over 250 new students will join the College in January with around 156 of them in Year 5.

New students and families bring heightened energy and anticipation. This annual surge of young students and their families continues to enrich the College. Part of their challenge is to find their place and connection over the years ahead. Our Big Brother program will assist them to find their feet quickly. I thank our senior staff members, Heads of House and Prefects for hosting these mornings.
