NSWSFL Epee Individual Competition Term 4 (Optional for SBHS Fencers)

St Aloysius and St Andrew’s Cathedral School coordinators are planning a series of Epee Individual competitions this term. They have invited all schools to participate.

More information can be found here:

As SBHS currently only runs Fencing as a Winter Sport, participation is entirely voluntary.

If you’d like to participate, please inform me via email ASAP. There is no cost to this event.

Please note: you must clear the relevant dates with your Summer Sport MIC (as this takes priority).

Please contact me if there are any questions or issues.

End of 2019 Season Survey

Hi all,

As we are wrapping up the end of another Fencing season, we ask that you please take some time to provide us with some valuable feedback so that we’re able to improve the program for next season.

The survey will only take a few minutes and the Google Form link can be found here:
SBHS Fencing 2019 – End of season survey

You’ll be required to sign into your Google account to ensure one response per person (and you can edit your response afterwards if you need to). The survey is completed anonymously as your email address is not collected.

The survey will remain open for the next few weeks (until the end of term), but please consider completing it ASAP so that we can review and start planning next year’s program to meet the needs of our school community.

Thank you very much for your time and assistance and may the Force be with you!

Fencing Dinner: requesting helpers to set up the Great Hall

I’d like some help to set up the Great Hall after school on Friday so that there’s less to do on Saturday afternoon. Expect 3:15pm to 3:45pm. Zooper Doopers for your assistance.

On Saturday, I will be at school from 3pm. Students are asked to come early to help with set up. You can warm up your Nidhogg skills if set up is completed early.

Reminder that all students are to wear full school uniform as it is a school event.

I look foward to seeing you there!
