The past two weeks have been a very mixed bag of events as precautionary measures were implemented to curtail the spread of COVID-19…Last week, NWAS games were providing opportunities for teams to represent the College and ACC swimming training concluded as the team rested in preparation for the interschool carnival on 19 March. Then for the first time in ACC history, all sporting competitions were cancelled by the ACC Office which meant the end of interschool swimming and no interschool NWAS for the remainder of this term. This is disappointing but a necessary safety measure for the wellbeing of our students.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Miss Shannon Smith for coaching the Swimming Team – you have done a fantastic job! Also, a huge thank you to the staff who put their hands-up to coach NWAS teams. These staff are: Mr David Green, Miss Georgie Major, Mrs Kirsten Martino, Ms Grace Jin, Mr Kyle Ganapathy, Dr Steve Carroll, Mr Nick Swaab, Mr Chris Simpson and Mr Jason Good. Thank you also to Mr Dwayne Grace for all his advice and support.

Finally, to all the students who gave of their time and talents to be a part of these teams, thank you. As we are in unprecedented times, we will have to wait and see which, if any, sporting events happen later in the year.

I thank families for their support and understanding.

Mr Craig Preshaw
Director of Sport
