Amazing day, with some amazing performances. A joeys boy I think broke around 4 records within the 15s age group. Charlie Jefferson is a one in a generation athlete and a tremendous leader for the kings boys today as there captain.AAGPS ATHLETICS
Good Evening, today marked a great day in the calendar as the AAGPS athletics carnival kicked off.
It was in my opinion one of the most thrilling to watch AAGPS carnivals.
These were the final results:
Overall Championship 2022
All the athletes that competed today should be congratulated on the efforts they have put into today.
All the cheering from all the schools was outstanding to hear and will hopefully be Ditto’d in the future season of rugby.
So in your interview did he say who from Joeys he spoke to …………………… I’m guessing noSeems like we both understand how to assess a credible story and the tenets of basic interrogation. I must say a psych degree and 5 years of investigative interviewing helped me a bit, but you weren’t to know that.
Scepticism is healthy, but outright denial also lacks credibility.
All the best.
He did, it’s why the story stood out. Not sure how prolific it is without the data, but it made me think how many inorganic players there are in an average 1XV team. I think 3 or 4 players could really make a difference year on year and is still more or less in line with the AAGPS charter, if schools are doing more than that per year, It’s a bit much ‘in my humble opinion’So in your interview did he say who from Joeys he spoke to …………………… I’m guessing no
This is the 10th title win in the Seniors division for the Kings School since 2008Amazing day, with some amazing performances. A joeys boy I think broke around 4 records within the 15s age group. Charlie Jefferson is a one in a generation athlete and a tremendous leader for the kings boys today as there captain.
if you haven’t watched The day I highly suggest going on the clutch website and watching the last race of the day followed by kings crowd going mental. It was a moment those boys will never forget.
Hello SydKings seem to be winning alot of sport and keeping up their academic results (other than the warm glow of success) what’s the culture like on the ground out there?
Great to hear, the kings boys I’ve come across were some of the most respectful I’ve encountered, glad to see the success hasn’t gone to ‘most’ of their heads ;-)Hello Syd
As a former teacher, who taught at Kings on a Part-Time basis only just recently, I can say the attitude of the boys in the classroom or around the school, was nothing short of brilliant. On at least two occasions, being new to the school and not aware of where to go, boys without hesitation, walked me to the respective classroom. So the courtesy and cooperation that was shown to me, was breathe taking in its reflection of Kings as a magnificent school. I was told by teachers who coached a number of Rugby teams. That this attitude was duplicated in their training and performance on the Rugby field.
Mind you, it was always like that. In 2010 when Kings, achieve 8 Australian school boy s representatives. The then coach was reputed to have described, coaching that 1st XV as a unpleasant experience. Too much arrogance and a sense of entitlement, that they expected to win. Which they didn't, but rather they lost to two more humble teams that year. Newington and Joeys. Newington were GPS champions that year, but only got I think about three into the Australian schoolboy side.
So Syd, between years teams will vary, Kings If I am correct have been GPS Champions, in 2020. Don't know about 2021. Great school to send a boy to and worth every cent you spent, in terms of school fees. The same holds true at Newington. Just read the way Dusk, writes on this site. Who is in year 12 at Newington.
From this, if any one is considering a GPS school, in which to enrol your son. You cannot go wrong with enrolments, at either Newington or Kings.
