FROM THE DIRECTOR OF JUNIOR SCHOOL, MR ANTHONY BANBOUKJIAN
Congratulations to following boys who have been given the honour of leading our music group this year:
- Captain – Zachary Straker
- Vice Captain – Hugo Defina-Sperando
We have been informed by Transport NSW that the end of grace period for school students travelling without an Opal Card on school or public buses has been extended and will end on Monday 21st March. If you have not yet applied for an Opal Card for your son please do so at your earliest convenience.
All students with Opal Cards are reminded to tap on and tap off on each journey to and from school.
Pick Up and Drop Off
Please be considerate of our neighbours when you drop off or pick up your son at school. Some parents are also now simply stopping in the middle of the road and letting their sons out. Not only is this practice dangerous it also slows the flow of traffic down Henrietta Street.
Special Mention: CIS and AFL
Last Friday saw a number of boys travel to Canberra to represent Waverley at the CIS AFL trials. Well done to the following boys: Angus Anthony, Finn Backlund, Louis Kitto, Jackson Macaulay, Luke Moloney, Hamish Morrison, Charley Roberts, Hugo Roles, Ethan Smith and John Walsh for their tremendous energy and effort.
Special congratulations to the three boys who were selected in the CIS team that will compete in the PSSA Championships– well done to Louis Kitto, Ethan Smith and Hamish Morrison. Luke Moloney was selected as a reserve for the team. The boys will compete in the NSWPSSA AFL Championships at Tomaree, from Tuesday, 24 May 2016 to Thursday, 26 May 2016.

Save the date: Mother’s Day Mass
An early invitation to our annual Mother’s and Grandmother’s Mass to be held 12pm Friday 6 May, followed by lunch at the Junior School. It would be appreciated if you could note the date in your diaries.
Last Saturday saw the conclusion of the first half of summer sports program. The same teams will compete in Term 4 for the second half of the competition. It was great to see every boy at the Junior School participating in our sports program. The comments regarding the boys at training and the games have been overwhelmingly positive. Bring on the winter season.
Message to the parents of boys making their confirmation at Mary Immaculate
As part of the Confirmation Sacramental Program for 2016 a mass will be held this Sunday 20 March for the Presentation of Candidates at Mary Immaculate Church commencing at 10.00am.
It is the expectation of both the Church and School that all boys making their Confirmation through the parish of Mary Immaculate are present.
I will be attending the mass so please ensure your son sees me to have his name marked off.
Thank you for your ongoing support of this very important part of your son’s journey through the Catholic faith.
The breakfast trial in our canteen will continue next week until Easter. Your ongoing support is greatly appreciated.
