From Director of Co-Curricular, Steve O’Donnell
Welcome back to Term 4 and the start of the 2019-20 Summer season for co-curricular. All training has commenced this week and all activities have fixtures or trials this weekend.
We had many activities over the break and a huge thank you to those staff and coaches who gave up their holiday time to facilitate these activities. I would also like to thank the students and staff that were on the cadets promotions course.
Our 1sts and A’s Basketball teams all competed in the annual Knox tournament and we had some impressive results. Particularly the 8A’s who lost the final to a very strong Trinity team. All other teams had some good wins during the event. We also played fixtures in Cricket against St Bede’s Christchurch who were very grateful for the opportunity.
Next Thursday, 24 October, we have our Summer 1sts and Captains assembly in the College Gymnasium from 12 pm. All parents are welcome and we will be also recognising our students selected for SRC positions for each House Group.
We do have a number of students competing in the NSW Oz-Tag Championships this weekend and I want to wish them well. I also want to wish all of our teams and activities the very best with their fixtures and trials this coming weekend.
Just a reminder for any student requiring leave, the request needs to be in writing two weeks ahead of time where possible and that students are only entitled to two exemptions in the calendar year.
