Please carefully read all information, if you can not find the answer you require, please contact the Teacher in Charge. This information can be found on the code webpages (links below). Please be aware that your email may not be responded to until the start of Term 1. Unless otherwise stated, all Summer Sports Registrations close on Tuesday 8 February.
Please note also that whether students wish to play socially or competitively, they must register online or risk missing out.
It is also important to be aware that the majority of Regional Sports Organisations, Sport Clubs and Venues/Facilities will only be able to operate at the capacity to allow games to go ahead if they mandate Vaccine Passes. This came into effect as at midnight on Thursday 2nd December 2021, so will apply to the majority of Sports Leagues and competitions in 2022. League administrators will be seeking confirmation of participants vaccination status, which they are legally entitled to do as per government legislation (all students over the age of 12 years 3 months will need to provide proof of vaccination if requested). If these organisations do not request proof of vaccination, severe number restrictions will be enforced meaning the competitions are not viable to run.
