Lastly, a very big thank you to all students who have already returned their books and wishing everyone the loveliest Christmas holidays spent surrounded by your loved ones :)

Year 10 boys are fast approaching their upcoming Service Week that begins on Monday, 20 November through to Friday, 24 November 2023. We have over 200 students who will be representing Waverley College and actively involved in volunteering in their local community.

Students have elected to spend their service helping out in a wide variety of community services and not-for-profit organisations, working alongside the disadvantaged, elderly, disabled, children and family support services.

Just a selection of these services include; Thread Together, Re-love, Matthew Talbot Hostel, Illowra Aged Care, Ronald Coleman Lodge, Our Big Kitchen, the Exodus Foundation, Windgap Foundation, The Salvation Army and St Vincent de Paul charity stores, St Gabriel’s School, Jarjum College and numerous preschools and primary schools in the local area and further afield across Sydney.

Students are expected to wear their school sports uniform unless otherwise stated. All students will be making their own way to their placement and will make their own way home again. Service hours each day will vary depending on each organisation and teachers are allocated to check on students throughout the week.

*If for any reason your son cannot attend, is sick or absent on any day, please inform the College and also contact his organisation that morning.

We look forward to all students enjoying a very memorable Service Week, making a contribution to their community, in addition to their own personal growth and learning.

Waverley College welcomes auditions from boys in Year 9 (2024) upwards for Tartuffe (the Hypocrite) by Moliére, being performed in 2024 at the PAC!

The Plot : Orgon is the man who has everything. Money, power, a beautiful family. But lately he’s been questioning the point of it all. When he invites Tartuffe into his perfect household, he unleashes a whirlwind of deception and seduction that threatens everything.

With Orgon under Tartuffe’s spell, can his family outwit this charismatic trickster? Are Tartuffe’s wild claims truth or fiction? Is this mysterious stranger the villain he appears?
Updated to a 1980s setting, this new version of Moliére’s comic masterpiece looks at the lengths we go to find meaning – and what happens when we find chaos instead!

Tartuffe will be performed from Tuesday, 18 June – Thursday, 20 June 2024 with rehearsals starting in Term 1 2024.

Please note that we are after boys from Year 9 upwards for this particular play, as it’s the last chance for some of our senior boys to shine in a Waverley production. Younger boys will get a chance to audition next year for a 2025 school musical to be performed at the NIDA theatre.

Dear Parents/Carers of Year 7 and Year 10 Students,

This is important information regarding the school based vaccinations, please read carefully.

Re: Third Vaccination Clinic for Year 7 HPV and Year 10 Meningococcal ACWY Catch Up Dose

The change to the human papillomavirus (HPV) dosing that occurred at the start of 2023 meant that students in Year 7 only required one dose of the HPV vaccination, opposed to two doses. NSW Public Health anticipated we would retain the scheduled 3rd clinic date (Tuesday, 19 September, 2023) to enable an opportunity to catch up students who may have missed out at previous clinics.  

However, given the overall good uptake of vaccination this year, there are fewer students requiring catch up vaccination than anticipated, providing NSW Public Health with the opportunity to schedule shorter visits and allow us to visit more than one school per day.  

Therefore, NSW Health has proposed that the original scheduled date and time for our catchup clinic is subject to change. As they are likely to be visiting more than one school per day, start times will differ from previous visits and will be included on reminder emails sent closer to the date. 

To ensure the clinic runs as smoothly and effectively as possible, the Waverley College Health Centre has been provided with a list of all students who have completed their vaccinations for 2023, along with students who need a catch up dose. The parents/carers of the students who require a catch up dose have already been emailed. So far, we have vaccinated 205 out of 227 Year 7 students and 167 out of 211 Year 10 students. We have received eight Year 7 and 24 Year 10 online consents for catchup.

 *If you have not received an email from the Waverley College Health Centre about catch up vaccinations OR you have not completed the online consent form for your child to receive the vaccination, then it is likely you will need to complete the online consent as soon as possible. This way NSW Health can determine whether an additional clinic is required. 

Please follow this link for online consent: NSW Health Service

Vaccination

Please be reminded of the following:

The following vaccines are offered free to students at school: 

Vaccination will only be provided at school if consent has been received. 

To provide online consent for vaccination, parents/carers will need:  

If you are experiencing problems consenting online then please contact the Health Centre for a paper consent form. You can email your request to: healthcentre@waverley.nsw.edu.au ATTN: Adele Cutbush (Registered Nurse).

Thank you.

On Wednesday, 16 August we will host our annual speed mentoring evening. The evening will take place 4pm-5.30pm in the Senior Library. 

Students will have the opportunity to engage in dynamic discussions about careers, skills, and studies with Waverley College alumni.

The aim of the evening is to create a forum whereby students can ask questions and gain insights into various industries in a short time. 

*This event is open to students only.

Students must please register their attendance HERE
