TERM 2 DIOCESAN SPORT UPDATE

Posted 5 May 2020 by John Sparks

All Diocesan sport for term 2 is cancelled and will not be rescheduled in terms 3 and 4. An exception to this may be the secondary Diocesan yr 7 & 8, yr 9 & 10 basketball knockout should the CCC event still be staged in term 4. There is no expectation or pressure for schools to hold athletics carnivals given the disrupted nature of term 2 and the difficulty in securing venues.Should MacKillop and CCC athletics go ahead in term 3 (still undecided), an assessment will look at the nature of these events and a method of Wollongong team selection if required.We are very keen to re-start the sports program but will only do so under advice from government health experts and our own Catholic Education Office executive.Stay safe!
