A Message from Mr Holden

We were treated to a stunning day last week for our Years 3-6 Prep Schools’ Athletics Carnival. There were a number of excellent individual performances and it was wonderful to see the high level of participation and enjoyment from boys as well as tremendous House Spirit. A number of selected students will now go on to represent Wyvern at the IPSHA athletic carnivals in late August; we wish them well.

My thanks to the P&F for their wonderful efforts with ‘Back to Newington Day’ on Saturday.  The stalls aimed at younger children made the event hugely enjoyable for all ages. A special mention to the Wyvern U12 rugby and football teams who played very well in short games against Lindfield Prep prior to the 1st XV and 1st XI games.

The Wyvern Choir performed superbly well at last week’s Founder’s Concert and looked very at home amongst the elite ensembles of the Senior School. Bravo for contributing to such an outstanding concert.

As we come to the last round of sport fixtures this Saturday, I thank all staff, parents, coaches/managers, boys and officials for their excellent contribution to the 2017 Winter sport season. The positive tone, good attitudes, teamwork, Wyvern spirit, dedication and commitment were evident across all sports. A special thank you to Mr Neil Brunton and Mr Joel Wilson and our sports staff for their valued co-ordination, work and leadership.

Finally, just a reminder that Monday 14 August is a pupil free day.
