Saturday 04/08/18 -Sabre Exchange with Trinity Grammar School

Hi all,

I am pleased to announce our inaugural friendly fencing exchange (Sabre) with Trinity Grammar School this Saturday 04/08/18.

Details are as follows:

Date: Saturday 04/08/18

Time: 8am (arrive by 7:30am) to 10am


Trinity Grammar School (Summer Hill campus)

119 Prospect Rd, Summer Hill NSW 2130


The venue is the Centenary Centre which is located in the north east corner of the school. The gate is right there at Prospect Road opposite Hurlstone Avenue. Enter the gate and turn right on to the synthetic surface.

Transport tips:

Public transport  is available via Summer Hill or Ashfield railway stations, both approximately a 20 minute walk away. The 413 bus also crosses Prospect Road. Other buses like the 428 are not far from the school either, about a 10 minute walk away. The school has a large car park for those arriving by personal transport. It is located on the other side of the school on Victoria Street opposite Holwood Avenue.

Extra notes:

Please let Mr Huynh and Coach Garry know by Wednesday if you wish to participate. Places may be limited (due to limited equipment resources and space). Coach Garry and I will make a final call on the list of fencers to send by Thursday.

Coach Garry and Mr Huynh will be there on the day to mark the roll and supervise.

We have been working hard to build relations with fellow fencing schools in NSW and look forward to continuing these productive activities in future seasons.

Please let me know if there are any issues or questions.

NSWSFL – Team Epee Premiership is going ahead this term!

Hi all,

I am happy to announce the confirmation of the NSW Schools’ Fencing League – Team Epee Premiership event happening later this term.

St Aloysius’ College (SAC) and St Andrew’s Cathedral School (SACS) will be joining us in this premiership involving teams in the U14, U16 and U18 (opens) category over three rounds on Saturdays in a round robin format.

Due to the significant changes and hectic schedule this season, I have requested and received approval from MIC Athletics to run this event during the Athletics season outside of the Winter Sport season for this year.

Events will run on Saturdays from approx. 8am to 12pm.

The dates and venues are as follows:

  • Round 1: 01/09/18 – St Andrew’s Cathedral School (SACS) will be hosting.
  • Round 2: 08/09/18 – Sydney Boys High School (SBHS) will be hosting.
  • Round 3: 15/09/18 – St Aloysius’ College (SAC) will be hosting.

More information and documentation will be updated soon leading up to the event.

Please let me know if there are any issues or questions.

Welcome back to term 3! Please read the following important information for upcoming events.

Hi all,

Welcome back to term 3!

We have a busy weekend ahead this first week with the Senior National School Championships and Round 2 of the Team Foil League fixture happening on the same day. Please see below for relevant info on both events:

NSWSFL Team Foil fixture Round 2:

SBHS is hosting this round on Saturday with Knox Grammar and St Ignatius teams visiting our school to fence.

Start time for the event is 8am and will conclude by approx. 12pm. Please see “Results 2018”¬†page for more information. If you are unable to attend this event, you must inform Mr Huynh ASAP to organise a replacement fencer for your team.

National School Championships:

Students who fenced in the Roberta Nutt and have nominated themselves to fence in the Individual categories of the National School Championships have all been selected to fence.

As far as I’m aware at this point in time, there are no other schools outside NSW competing in the boys events. As previously stated for this season, SBHS will support students who still wish to compete in the individual events.

Please find below the relevant information for involved fencers.

Senior Australian Schools Championships Selections email from NSWFA

You will need to register yourself for the competition via the link in the document. The link is also posted below for your convenience:

The school is unable to pay the entry fee directly because it requires you to sign in with your NSWFA registration details. You will need to complete the registration form and pay the entry fee ($95) for yourself via the link listed above. You can then apply for a refund of the entry fee cost via the school front office as a credit to your student school account.

It is your responsibility to complete the registration by Thursday 26/07/18 and inform Mr Huynh once you have done so.

A note regarding Teams for the National School Championships:

SBHS will not be participating in any team events at the National School Championships. SBHS did not participate in the NSWFA multi-week teams program and therefore did not have any teams qualify for the National School Championship team events.

Please let me know if there are any issues or questions.
