    Too true RL!

    The other half told me she'd seen some people hauling in around 20 bottles of tomato sauce. Next thing you know I'll be wiping my ass with all the Waverley programs I've received over the years.

    Not quite, approx 3-4 are not doing the HSC out of a squad of 50. Which is probably the same ratio as other schools.
    It would be horrible if all the year 12 boys from all the schools had their golden moment taken away, let's hope and be positive that all will be well.

    Genuine question, how do you do year 12 and not do the HSC? Is there a provision in schools to be there just for sport purposes only? If so, I had no idea!!

    Neither did I until I found out last year that my Godson + a number of his cohort didn’t do the HSC at their GPS school, many of whom were coincidentally in the 1st or 2nd XV. I’ve subsequently found out that it goes on at a few of the GPS schools. It kind of goes against the “we develop well rounded students” ethos that they all espouse on their websites IMO.

    Fair question WTF, things are a bit/lot different then the good ol days.
    These boys, like others in other schools, will get their HSC by completing year 12 but doing subjects that are not Uni related, ie they are not doing an ATAR, does that explain it?

    Spot on.
    Students can "do their HSC" by studying the compulsory English course and then focussing on vocational subjects like Hospitality, Construction and Business Services.
    There is no need to apply for an ATAR for university entry: a Certificate II is awarded for the vocational subjects and provides a pathway towards those areas of work and further education in those subject areas.
    Additionally, at least one school in the past had students studying University College subjects whilst in Years 11 and 12, allowing a "back door" entry to uni without having to compete for a high ATAR.

    News just in, Trinity has cancelled all pre season trials. At this stage 5 CAS rounds will still be played, but no trials.

    Message from Barker Headmaster Tuesday 17th.
    Today I met with the Heads of the other CAS schools to discuss the continuation of the sport program for the remainder of Term 1 and into Term 2. CAS schools resolved to suspend ALL competition and inter-school play until May 31. This decision also includes IPSHA, ISA and District sport.
    The planned sport trials for Saturday 21 March are also cancelled.
    We regret the disappointment that this necessary decision may cause to our community.

    Barker will continue to run its mid-week sport training program for the time being. There will be no Saturday sport commitments or weekend co-curricular activities for the remainder of the term.

    Pretty sure all CAS parents have this by now, CAS schools resolved to suspend ALL competition and inter-school play until May 31. This decision also includes IPSHA, ISA and District sport.
    Looks as though the CAS/GPS "trial" rounds are cactus, and R1 and R2 which are in May. With SJRU putting a ban on everythingincluding training until the end of April, season looking shaky.

    What happens to M Amestero of Waverley? Didn’t he have another year?

    I imagine no comp this year, but Barker 1st XV boys are still training just in case there is a chance of games ahead!

    the 4sqm rule is going to kill off any training now surely.

    We have trained most of this week.

    I imagine everyone else is doing the same. CAS games will be better, no injured players from trial or rep games.
