Dear Parents,

A lovely morning last Saturday greeted us for our commencement of 2021 Winter sport, and it was nice to feel a sense of sporting normality once more.

We had a mixed day of results with the three winter codes with our Traditional Rugby & AFL teams coming up short, whilst our Football teams had the better of TGS Prep in two Year 5 fixtures. The three Year 6 teams all finished square with Newington Lindfield and our Year 4s ran into stiff opposition in the U10 Year 5s of St. Patrick’s, a very tough round 1 opponent.

You are reminded about arriving well before your son’s match and with all equipment needed to be on or easily accessible at the ground upon arrival. The boys should be ready to warm-up 30 minutes before their scheduled match.

On Tuesday mornings our Football 4A, 5A & 6A, AFL, 1st XV, 11A and 10A Rugby have all commenced compulsory training before school. The coaches have planned out these sessions carefully, so it is very important that if you are in these teams you are ready to start warming up at 7:00am.

All Football Goalkeepers will have a specialist coach, Mr Marques in attendance on Thursdays.

Any other boys who wish to attend and are not in the ‘A’ teams currently in their code are free to attend on Tuesday mornings with their sport and year group.

Rugby 7s, this week we are NOT at Koola Park. Year 4 & Year 6 are at Grammar St. Ives and Year 5 are at The Kings School for one week only!

Intra Sport: The first weekend of Winter Intra saw boys in 12 teams from Junior & Preparatory Schools compete in small-sided Football matches. We will be looking for the boys to continue to improve their skills in this focussed sport which will run for at least the first five Saturdays of term at Bressington Park.
