Term 2 has continued to be eventful, with many different events being held within the calendar. In the past fortnight, we’ve had the Junior School Cross Country, Generations in Jazz, the fortnightly Respite Program, and a Touch Rugby game against the Seymour Prefects.  

 The Junior School Cross Country was held on the Monday 8 May, and was fantastic. It was great to see all the younger boys get involved in running for their House and supporting their friends in such a challenging event. Thank you to all the House Captains and SRC members who helped organise the day. Well done boys! 

It was great to have Generations in Jazz back in action again after the pandemic. After a weekend of amazing music, the boys returned back to school with celebrations. Big Band placed third in Division 1, making them the third-best Big Band in Australia. A special mention to Will White (Year 12), Archie Young (Year 11), Johnny Turner (Year 11) and Carbon Li (Year 8) for their placements into Superband.  

The Respite Program is also back up and running for Term 2, and we’ve been joined by two additional guests. As always, it’s an enjoyable and exciting experience to be mentors and companions to members of the community. The Year 11 students involved did a terrific job in guiding the guests, and it was obvious all the boys had a lot of fun.  

 Finally, on the Friday 12th May, the SPSC Prefects went to Seymour College to play against their Prefects in Touch Rugby. It was a hard fought competition, with SPSC off to a strong start in the first half. Ian Irwin scored three tries, and Oliver Grieve scored one, placing us in a 4-2 lead and looking in control of the game. The boys came off the field in an upbeat mood, heading straight to Tom Browning, our coach after injury, who hyped the boys up and reminded them of our aggressive strategy. Seymour came back with a vengeance, forcing the boys onto the backfoot in the first half of the second half. However, we attacked right back, finishing the game in a 7-5 win, with the final three tries being scored by Wyl Godfrey, Ian Irwin and Will Rozenbilds. Well done to the Prefects on their deserved win, and thanks to Seymour for allowing us to take part in on their Dolly Day fundraiser. Additionally, a massive thanks to Stewart Anderson, Tom Browning and Mr Savage for supporting the boys on the day.  

Looking ahead, the SPSC boys are getting ready for Swimming Carnival next Friday, and have finished their trials. We’re all excited and ready to go, and it’s looking to be a fantastic day. 

As always, if you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to reach out to us on @saintscaptains or via email. We’re happy to help.
