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:

https://www.registernow.com.au/secure/Register.aspx?E=30844

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.

Cheers,
Dat Huynh
