The Rain Continues … From Director of Co-Curricular, Mr Steve O’Donnell

Waverley College, Steven O'Donnell

Director of Co-curricular, Mr Stephen O'Donnell

The weather continues to wreak havoc on our fixtures and training this term, and unfortunately, looks set to continue for the next week. I very much appreciate the wider community’s patience and understanding, and we are all hoping for conditions to ease by the end of next week.

Congratulations Xavier Miconi

Well done to Xavier Miconi who was selected this week to represent CAS Tennis against ISA next Tuesday.

Planned Presentation Evenings – Save the Date

  • Friday, 18 March – with only two more rounds of summer sport left this term, we do have some planned Presentation Evenings coming up. Friday, 18 March is the combined Swimming and Water Polo Presentation Evening in the PAC from 6:30pm, as well as the Basketball Presentation Evening in the Br Lacey Gymnasium at the College.
  • Saturday, 19 March – the following evening will be the Cricket Presentation Evening in the Br Lacey Gymnasium at the College.

These will be the first proper presentation evenings we have been able to hold for over two years.

2022 CAS Swimming and Diving Championships at SOPAC

Thursday, 17 March is the 2022 CAS Swimming and Diving Championships at SOPAC. We invite any students who wish to attend as spectators next week, and have a limit of 150. Any parent of a swimmer or diver is welcome to attend. We have limited capacity on the numbers that we can take, due to repair works at the venue.

Students attending as spectators will be required to wear full summer uniform and be transported to and from the venue by bus. These students will also be supplied with food for the event.

Spectator buses will depart at 3pm and return by 9pm to the College. For this carnival, we are only offering transport back to the College, and not to any other suburbs. There will still be some specific COVIDSafe protocols implemented for this event.

Great Success Stories From State Age Surf Life Saving Titles

Last weekend saw a large number of Waverley students from Years 5-10 competing for various surf clubs at the State Age Surf Life Saving titles. There were many great student success stories before the carnival was suspended due to health concerns from contaminated water.

For any student who is now competing in older age groups over the next two weekends, who has not yet requested leave, please do so as soon as possible. This allows us to make the appropriate adjustments and approve these requests.

When Does Summer Sport End and the Winter Season Begin?

Saturday, 12 March is the final round of summer sport. The following week, other than swimming, is a sport-free weekend for all students, due to our winter coaches’ induction. We will then commence the winter season for most activities from Monday, 21 March, with two weeks of internal training and trials.

As and 1sts Football Teams

Our As and 1sts Football teams will all play a CAS Blitz on Saturday, 26 March, with the 8As at Queens Park.

Fingers crossed for some sunshine soon!
