From the Head of College, Graham Leddie
Dear Parents, Carers and Students
Firstly, I would like to thank staff, students and parents for your support over the last 15 months. It is a great honour to lead any team and it is certainly a great honour to be given this opportunity to lead Waverley College and work with a great staff, student and parent body, Parent Association, College Board, Old Boys, College groups and wider College community. I look forward to working with all of you in the future.
Welcome back for Term 2 and I extend a special welcome to the new students and their families who have joined the Waverley College community this Term. I hope that the holidays were restorative and restful for all. I also hope that the special Church celebrations of Easter brought some time for reflection and prayer, as well as time with family and friends.
Congratulations to our Cadet Unit Representatives who did a magnificent job of staging the College’s Anzac Day Ceremony on the last day of Term 1 – it was a very moving event. They went on to represent the College proudly at both the Waverley and Sydney ANZAC Day ceremonies, where they stood out impressively.
Congratulations must also go to our First XI Football Team who were runners up in the St Andrew’s Cup, held over the holidays. Waverley College ultimately lost 4-3 to Oakhill College in a penalty shootout after scores were locked at 3-3 in normal time.
And finally, congratulations to our New Zealand Rugby tourists who survived Cyclone Cook and also won all of their tour matches. Reports back to the College were extremely complimentary regarding their sportsmanship, manners and cultural awareness.
I wish all of our students the very best for Term 2 across their respective academic and other pursuits including Year 12 examinations, NAPLAN testing, May Procession, winter co-curricular, Music Camp and Festival, Year 7-10 half yearly examinations, Canberra excursion and subject selections, to name but a few.
