Hi Parents and Friends
SBHS Fencing subcommittee now has a WeChat forum for discussion. Please leave either your mobile phone number or WeChat ID below so we can invite you to join and start chatting.
The boys achieved incredible results at the Fencing National School Teams Championships in Brisbane on Saturday the 18th of June. It was also the strongest turnout to date at the competition, with 6 teams competing in the men’s Epee and 4 teams in the men’s Sabre.
After achieving Silver for the last two seasons, our Epee A Team finally won Gold this year and our Epee B Team had their strongest performance yet and came through with the Bronze.
Our Sabre team delivered a stunning performance to win another Gold and remain the champions in Sabre for the 3rd year in a row.
Congratulations and well done, my padawans!
As the end of the financial year draws closer, I’d like to take this opportunity to inform parents and supporters to an opportunity to make a tax deductable donation to SBHS Fencing. In cooperation with SBHS Cricket, we are currently fundraising for the long overdue (and needed) renovation of the COLA (Covered Outdoor Leisure Area) Centre. As Cricket uses the venue in the Summer season and it is our home for Fencing training in the Winter season, it is in our interest to contribute towards this renovation to improve the training facilities for our boys.
The renovations will include resurfacing of the turf, an overhaul of the netting system for easier transition to an open space (for Fencing) and additional canopy coverage to protect the area from wind and rain. This renovation is quoted at $75 000. Any help from parents and supporters would be greatly appreciated.
If you’d like to make a tax deductible donation or would like to pass this link to any other supporters who might be interested to help, please visit the link below:

Thank you for your time and attention on this matter.
