The team will be on BBQ duty all day to raise as much as we can to go towards our busy rugby calendar of events.
We do need your help so please use the link here to connect to a Google calendar page and put in your name to assist on the day. We value any contribution you can give in blocks of one hour, please.
Hope to see you there on the day.
The school will be hosting the Weary Dunlop Shield during round 5 of the VSRU competition on 30 May. This is the round when we play Ivanhoe Grammar School at each year level for the coveted Weary Dunlop Shield. However, now that Marcellin is in Division 1 it has transpired that IGS now has a Div 2 match to play. This means there is no First XV match as we have the bye this week in Div 1.
The Second XV are playing away at St Kevins at 10.00am
The U15 and U13 will play IGS at home and the Weary Dunlop Shield will be decided as an aggregate of the two match's scores.
U13 kick off at 8.30am and U15 kick off at 10.00am.
The U14 are scheduled to play Scotch College at home with their match starting at 9.15am.
We have the Bunnings BBQ running all day at Preston on this day too so we will need general help on the kiosk from 7.30 set up to 11.00 pack down. It would be truly appreciated if you could lend a hand. Please feel free to approach the PSG mums and dads at the kiosk and offer your services. Perhaps you can do an hour at each site? Just a thought...
Please click here if you can help for any amount of time.
The next Kiosk being run at the school grounds for the rugby teams and supporters is next weekend. Please click here to go to the google calendar page to register your assistance.
Many Thanks from the teams and the Rugby PSG.
