From the Sportsmaster | Junior Schooldeveloper
Tomorrow is our final Saturday sport of term. All Year 4-6 winter sports trials are at Bressington Park, Underwood Rd Homebush, opposite DFO.
If boys have not bought a jersey for their sport at this stage, please wear the white PE shirt and green PE shorts until the uniform is purchased. If unsure of your son’s selection, please hold off on purchasing any kit until grading has finished. Mouthguards are compulsory for rugby and AFL and recommended for football. Headgear is recommended for rugby. Shin guards are compulsory for football. All boys require boots for Thursday sessions and their games on the weekends during Terms 2 and 3.
Next Thursday for our sports session we will be bussing the boys to Cooke & Flockhart Parks as the ovals at school will all be out of action. A note has come home regarding this.
