Last week our Rugby 1st XV played strongly to record another win. They are placed equal second with Padua, so this week’s match up will be a very interesting contest. Football 1st XI played in the premiership deciding game against Iona. In what was an exciting game of football Iona unfortunately won 3-2.The football team although upset with the result can hold their heads high in putting up a tough spirited effort. Sport can be very cruel.

With one round of the competition left in the football and rugby season against Padua College the following teams are placed in the top three; 8A Rugby, 16A Rugby, 1st XV Rugby, 2nd XV Rugby, 3rd Rugby, 8A Football, 1st XI Football, 2nd XI Football, 3rd XI Football, 5th XI Football. Good luck to all teams in their last game.

Back to Shorncliffe Day this weekend promises to be a great day. Students are reminded to be on time for their team photo. Photos will be taken behind the Peter Tyrell Function Centre. Many extra activities are planned for the day. Please ensure your son packs his formal uniform to stay after their game and support their College community. Year 5 players who will running on with their Big Brother or 1st teams, may stay in playing uniform.

Back to Shorncliffe Day is also the biggest day of the year for the Sport Support Group. Parent volunteers will be required to assist in the canteen throughout the day. Please don’t leave it to the same families to help each week. Drop in and lend a hand while your son is warming up for their game. Also, the period after lunch is a time that extra help is often required. With students being encouraged to stay for the day, parents may be able to assist after their sons’ games.
