Walk a Marathon is on today at lunch time. Meet in room 14 to do the roll before we leave. If it is raining, it will not be on. We are about half way there, so we will complete the ‘marathon’ next term and I’ll sign off CV the points then.

Congratulations to those students who made it into the extended 1st XV rugby squad. The squad of 29 below will be cut down to 22 after some training sessions in Term 2.
Please remember that these positions are not set in stone, and are subject to change at any time. Continued inclusion in the 1st XV team is conditional on satisfactory behaviour in school, attendance at rugby training, and performance in games. Students that play exceptionally well in the 2nd XV may have the opportunity to replace any player in the 1st XV that doesn’t meet the standard required as detailed above.
Trainings for the 1st XV will start in Term 2 Week 1 on Tuesdays and Thursdays at lunch. Please ensure that you have your boots, a change of clothes and a mouthguard.
