Congratulations to the staff, coaches and members of the Waverley College CAS Track & Field Team on an outstanding performance last Thursday and over the whole season. Mr Jeremy Roff and Ms Rebecca Gair have led this group superbly, and to achieve an equal 2nd with Knox is an amazing result. This is our best result since 1995 and we are looking to continue to build on this in the coming seasons.

Dear Parents, Carers and Students
We are pleased to announce that we are seeking expressions of interest for a proposed New Zealand Cricket tour, which will take place at the conclusion of school in Term 4 2024, and will then continue into the first week of the December holidays.
The College requires a $1,000 deposit to guarantee your son a spot. This deposit will be followed by three equal instalments. The total amounts of each instalment will be confirmed once a final cost of the tour is determined.
Tour Payment Schedule
Payment of deposit can be made via the following:
Please only use EFT as BPAY will go onto school fees instead
BSB: 062 124
All tourists must have a valid passport. The College will share more information once the tour group has been finalised.
Please note that this is a self-funded tour and will not be subsidised by the College.
This tour is a wonderful opportunity for those selected and students are encouraged to potentially seek casual work over the holiday periods to pay for the tour.
Thank you and kind regards,
Mr Sean Picone
Convenor of Cricket
Our Track & Field athletes have continued to perform very well at the invitational carnivals and in particular our middle distance and sprint athletes.
We are at ES Marks Athletics Field in Moore Park for the next two Saturdays in preparation for the the CAS Championships on 14 September 2023. This big event is a compulsory Supporters’ Duty for all students in Years 7 and 12, and is certainly one the highlights of the CAS sporting calendar.
Parents, carers and students were sent a letter earlier this week outlining the event, which can also be found by clicking the button below.

I also want to congratulate two students who represented the College over the weekend at the National Cross Country Championships.
Evan Rowbowtham in the U14s finished in 12th position, and Campbell Groves finished 26th in the U18 category (19th in his U17 age group).
These are tremendous performances against the best long distance runners in the country and the College is extremely proud of their efforts.
This week we celebrated the successful 2023 Winter co-curricular season with our awards assembly. As part of this assembly we also recognised and instigated the Parent Supporters’ Awards and perpetual shield.
In 2023 we recognised Denis and Megan Hickey and John and Maureen Andrews. Both of these families have given so much time, effort and sacrifice to ensure that both our summer and winter co-curricular programs delivered effective catering, lunches, after match functions and presentation evenings, as well as countless other duties for over 10 years.
On behalf of the College I want to say a huge thank you and we will certainly miss you. A big thank you also to all of the other parents/carers in Year 12 who have assisted where they can with Supporters’ Groups and the Parents’ Association.
Well done to all of our award winners which you can view by clicking on the button below.
