Wild Weather Effects the Start of Winter Co-curricular activities
From Mr Steve O’Donnell, Director of Co-curricular
After an extraordinary week of wild weather, we will endeavour to adjust our winter co-curricular activities and trials as best as we can. Hopefully we will be able to run internal trials and training this coming weekend but will also need to hold some training and trials during the holiday period so we are adequately prepared for next term.
Further information about these sessions will be published as soon as they are finalised.
In the meantime, we encourage all students playing various football codes to ensure they are maintaining their fitness and skills in preparation for the season.
AFL and Volleyball Uniforms
A reminder that students in AFL and Volleyball can now purchase their uniforms for the winter season. We will notify the wider community as soon as all items for all activities are available which should be very soon. Click here to view the extended holiday trading hours.
Summer Co-curricular, Individual, House Photos
For all of those families that ordered photos for Summer co-curricular, individual and house photos they should arrive by this Friday and will be given to students’ Head of House. Students can collect these from Monday next week or they will be handed out at our next House Assemblies.

Waverley College Rugby Report
From Mr John McCoy, Convenor of Rugby
A Wet Start
Unfortunately, due to the wet weather we have been unable to get the start to the rugby season which we wanted. Training and trial fixtures have had to be cancelled as a result of the poor weather and ground closures. Players and families are encouraged to monitor updates from Mr O’Donnell and Mr Wilmot regarding sport for the remainder of Term 1. Players should be prepared to train unless they may hear otherwise.
Due to the poor weather and the disrupted start to the season, we will be looking to hold some training sessions over the upcoming holiday period. A schedule will be communicated to players and families through the various Waverley College communication platforms in the coming week.
To assist with planning, please take note of the following dates for the 2021 season including the GPS/ISA Trial Fixtures and the CAS Fixtures. Please note that the listed opponents and playing locations are a guide only, and may be subject to change for certain teams should an opposing school be unable to match up in grades.

A reminder that the Rugby Supporters Club has set up an online roster for the BBQ and Canteen. Noting the season draw listed above, It would be great if parents and supporters could donate any time to helping out (even just an hour), obviously ensuring you do not miss your son’s game.
You can register your interest by going to the Roster for BBQ & Canteen
Following the only two days of training held last week, before the heavens opened, a number of students did leave items of clothing at Queens Park. A reminder that players need to take extra care of their new uniforms and should ensure that names are placed on all clothing items. We will do our best to try to get any pieces of clothes that are found back to the owner. If items of clothing are not labelled, they will be taken to lost property in the Wellbeing Centre.
Waverley To Win!
