NSW Schools’ Fencing League Exchange #2: SBHS v Barker on Saturday 19/05/18

It was a great turn out from our boys at the second foil fencing exchange of the season. Barker hosted SBHS at their venue in Hornsby and all students had a good opportunity to fence and build relationships with our host school.

Thank you to our generous host for providing morning tea and running a successful fencing exchange!

NSW Schools Fencing League – Boys Foil Team Premiership 2018

Hi all,

We have been working hard on a new program for a NSW Schools Fencing League where schools work directly with each other to create inter-school fencing opportunities for our students.

In the interest of transparency, I have attached documentation for a proposal for a Schools Fencing League that was discussed with a number of other schools as a response to the changes that NSWFA made to their school-aged program this year.

A Proposal for a NSW Schools’ League Competition in Boys Team Foil Fencing in 2018_V1.1_180309

I am delighted to inform you that we have five schools (including ours) working together on a pilot program for Boys Team Foil this season.

You can find more information about the program on the 2018 School Competitions page.

Exchanges and Fixtures for Foil are planned for this season with other activities being developed for Epee and Sabre – More details to come soon.

We look forward to this exciting opportunity to foster good relationships with other fencing schools and provide worthwhile inter-school fencing activities for our students.

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

Best regards,
Dat Huynh
