Prep Sport

Mr Robert Egan | Prep Sportsmaster

Term 3, Week 1 Overview

An energetic first week of the term was capped off with a packed round one of GPS fixtures in Rugby and Chess. Basketball got underway with a busy week of skill workshops and trials, whilst junior rugby and football have continued their training and matches.

The weekend saw some early promise with the prep carpark full by 8.30am on Saturday morning. A busy day of sport started with successful U6 – U8 rugby fixtures and ended with a strong 1st XV victory, all of which were well attended by prep school boys and parents alike.

GPS is on the road for round two, heading for Toowoomba Grammar School. Our coaches have been busy trailing and discussing team selection this week, with initial team lists near completion. Can I thank both the boys and parents for their patient support of the coaches and remind the boys that selections are not fixed and are regularly reviewed throughout the season to promote the best playing environment for each individuals progression. It’s time to direct our energy into training and get ready for another big weekend of sport.

A reminder that the majority of the co-curricular activity programs started this week, please see fridge facts or Prepbook for details.
