Term 2, Week 1 - 2018, 4 May
Written on the 4 May 2018 by Rostrevor College
From the Principal
Welcome Back to Term 2
The start of the winter term also signals the much-awaited commencement of winter sport. While the first game for some teams is not until next week, many will run onto the court or field this Saturday. Congratulations to all the boys who have been selected in the 1st VXIII and 1st XI. We know how many of you have looked forward to representing your college at the highest level in our senior teams.
We extend our best wishes to every boy and every team. May you enjoy the thrill of competition and the learning that comes from testing your skills against similarly passionate young men from other colleges. At the same time, may your determination and sportsmanship reflect the best of the Rostrevor tradition.

Mr Geoff Aufderheide
Welcome back to Term 2!
Choomalaka! As is customary, we will aim to teach the Junior Campus students the Rostrevor 'War Cry' during next week so they can celebrate victory like so many before them.
Egan House were the eventual winners and we look forward to putting the pressure on them later this term when we hold our annual Soccer World Cup up on the Senior Tennis Courts. These courts were upgraded last year and continue to be an exceptional facility for our boys to use.
I would encourage all parents and caregivers to ensure they have made the time to meet with their son's teacher/s to ask questions or seek clarification on grades or effort.

Senior Years Co-Curricular News
Mr Jeff Fischer
Last weekend was the final round of summer co-curricular sport for Term 1 and the competition will resume in Term 4. Training and trials for Terms 2 and 3 winter sport have commenced this week and it is always pleasing to see the boys utilising the soccer and AFL goals in their play time during the day.
Schools do not always play on their actual grounds; therefore, it is important to check where the match is being played. Maps are usually available by Wednesday of the upcoming weekend at the latest but I am reliant upon the opposing school to forward this information.
