While the weather has not been cooperating this week, we were blessed with a sunny day on Wednesday to run Week 2 of sport. Students were able to select sport choices this term and Lake Walking proved a fairly popular choice amongst the older student.
Griffins Rugby Club is hoping to expand their junior club base in the area of Newcastle and, to this effect, they are partnering with our College to develop Rugby in our school and provide pathways to school and community competitions for our students. Initially, their involvement is to provide skill and game coaching during sport time and they hope that this will develop into something further, where we have the capacity to enter teams into school-based and community competitions. This week, students were restricted to the courts, but made the best of things.
We hope to take part in some Basketball and Rugby games against rival schools later this term if the COVID situation remains steady or improves.
