After a successful 2018 on the sporting field we are very excited to enter the 2019 year and try to defend championships and add new ones to the list this year. The activities below have already been planned for this year. Family and community support is very much welcomed and valued at any of our events throughout the year.

House Captains 2019

House captains will be elected during week 2. Each house will have a Senior Male and Female Captain (from Year’s 11 and 12) and a Junior Male and Female Captain (from Year 6). Good luck to all those who nominate for this role.

K-12 Sportsday

CYS Sports Day will be held on Friday the 8th of March (Week 6). Training for this will happen throughout the next few weeks and further information will be forwarded on shortly. As in previous years the Javelin, Triple Jump and Long Run will happen before the day. The Javelin and Triple Jump will happen on Tuesday the 5th of March and the Long Run on Thursday the 7th of March. Again, more information will be forwarded on closer to the dates. To the wonderful helpers that come out and help we will be asking for your help again this year so please contact Jason Clifford at
