25 THE TORCH BEARERS In 1997 a special colleccion was made within the Old Boy community co raise funds for the maintenance of the School's archive. With the refurbishment of the Archive centre still some years away at that stage, it was decided to establish a special archival projecc. The idea of recording in some way the deeds and experiences of Shore Old Boys in war was not a new one, and had been proposed a number of times since Indeed from the beginning of hostilities in 1939 the Old Boys Union, through The Torch Bearer, began collecting service information regarding Old Boys and publishing, in instalments, a list of those who were serving in His Majesty's Forces. Following the cessation of hostilities, a booklet compiled by master and Old Boy, CS Tiley, was published by the Old Boys Union. Included was a list of all the names received by the union during the war, but it was not intended as a final product. The preface to the booklet appealed to the Shore community to complete the list and correct the record. Finally, after nearly SO years, the job has been completed. The cask began in earnest in November 1997, when a committee comprising Brian Wileman, Chairman, Ian Guild, Development Officer, and Brian Watson, President of the Old Boys Union, met with John Gorham, who was to become the first editor of the Project. Examples of similar publications from other schools were discussed and it was decided that Shore's tribute to its ex~ servicemen should be of far greater depth. Nor only would living ex-servicemen be consulted about their war service, but the editor, with a research assistant working three days a week, would research the service of those who had passed away and whose service details would otherwise be lost to the School. There began a task that involved twice the time and many times more manhours than rhos~ at the first meeting could have known. Two years later, with the launch of The Torch Bearers, the Project had employed seven staff at various times, the committee had grown to seven, and the tasks involved occupied many hundreds of hours of volunteers' time. In January 1998 editor and research assistant, Chris Hewett, began trolling through a vast list of 2200 names, which included the original list produced by Clem Tiley, and names that had been added over the years. Who did we have information about and who did we not? How could we contact those that were still alive and the families of the deceased? The School held the addresses of some 400 of the names on the list. We knew many more would be 27

26 alive, but out of contacr. We also knew that the families of many descendants would have remained within the Shore community so we set about trying to tap this resource. Our first action was to produce a list to be published in Shore Reports containing the names of men for whom we had no contact address. The list ran over many pages, but its size did not daunt the many people, some of whom turned our to have very tenuous links with Shore indeed, who telephoned, faxed and wrote to us with information. We soon found out who the most popular widows were! Mrs Irma Reid had been working steadily on a separate project for the Development Office, linking family groups within the School's database. She now concentrated upon the men's families that appeared on our list, and through her patient research we were able to add some 650 contacts to our database of names of the relatives of Old Boys who had died. So, bit by bit and over many months our database was built. Summer 1998 passed and the sports played on the School's oval, which was the view from our room, changed, yet we still had no information regarding the service history of our men. The time had come to begin the real task commissioned us. We began with a questionnaire, in fact six questionnaires: one for exservicemen of each arm of the service, Navy, Army and Air Force and, if the Old Boy was not contactable, equivalent forms to be sent to their relatives. We expected a response rate of around 25 per cent, but for the next few weeks the desks of both the editor and the research assistant were inches deep in returned forms, photographs, discharge certificates, old letters and the like, even?ld ships' menus. The response rate, amongst living ex-servicemen, was somewhere around 80 percent, and for the relatives, in the vicinity of 25 per cent. Yet in one area reticence was threatening an aim of the project. From the first meeting it had been a goal to record the reminiscences of Old Boys in war and to use these to weave together 'Shore's history' of the conflicts. This would have the twofold effect of placing the service records in a coritext and collating those records and experiences in a meaningful way. However, whilst Shore Old Boys were eager to answer the questionnaire, they were not so keen to write their reminiscences. A natural reticence hampered our efforts to illustrate the bare facts of their war experiences. To counter this unexpected development the Chairman started on the telephone, calling those he knew had been active in the war, and convincing many to be active amongst their peers, encouraging the recording and submitting of reminiscences. Men such as Jack Starkey and Ian Geddes were prolific in their garnering of stories. The Chairman or the editor visited those who were particularly reticent or isolated, and journeys were made to the Southern Highlands, Canberra and Armidale in search of 'the gritty truth'. The result should have been expected, but it was still came as a surprise when the time came to decide on the size of the book. If we were ro publish the reminiscences alone we would have had a book some words long! By this stage the committee 28

27 had taken the shape that it would maintain until the close of the project. Ian Guild returned to the United Kingdom and was replaced by Old Boy and Vietnam veteran, Ross Alexander, as Foundation Director, and Brigadier Ian Geddes represented the Second World War ex-servicemen. There still remained the problem of those Old Boys for whom we had no contacts, including the few who had not responded to our questionnaires. How to gather their service records? The answer lay in the vast archives of the armed services, but how did we access those? Here luck was on our side. The Navy and Air Force refused to hand over files to any except the next of kin. This hurdle was overcome by Ms Gay Hogan of the National Archives in Canberra, who submitted her own request and received and photocopied the files for us. The Army initially presented the same obstruction, but after a conversation with the Chairman, Doug Mehan of Central Army Records Office in Melbourne not only agreed to our request, but provided a photocopying machine and staff to assist a group of Old Boys in the copying of thousands of files. This required a group of Old Boys to spend many, many hours phococopying and posting the copies m our office. This extensive task was performed admirably by Melbourne Old Boys, under the guidance of Bill Tooth. The sporting uniforms on School Oval had changed again by the time all these files began arriving in bulky parcels in our office. It was summer again and, according to the timetable, we were meant to be wrapping up the project, preparing for a launch in April of In reality the task of deciphering the piles of service records was only about to begin. The office changed location, from the views of the Holmes Room to the earth-bound old drama resource room, beside the Form IV locker room. To those who were to occupy that room it really did seem that we had exchanged the wood panelling of the War Office for a concrete bunker in time for the serious work to begin. As the academic staff of the School left for their holidays, a team of Sydney Old Boys moved in to make sense of the service records, under the guidance of the research assistant. Many were surprised at the state of the records. The files had suffered from the passing of time, jottings in pencil faded to nothing and ill-placed tears hindered our work. The Army files in particular wert puzzles needing to be solved. Second World War clerks did not always write n~atly, nor use the same set of abbreviations. The task of summarising the files was noc finished until late January, by which time the project staff felt they had seen enough of military scribblings. As the files were summarised the office assistant, Amanda Allsop, entered them into the project's database. With the start of another school year the project faced another crisis. The editor, John Gorham, was required to resume his academic duties, but the bulk of the book was unfinished. There was much editing of the database and reminiscences to be done, and the history, which is Section I of the book, was less than half-finished. It was decided Chris Hewett would assume an editorial position and that he would receive assistance in the form of two part-rime research assistants, Victoria Rintoul and Robert Stokes, himself an 29

28 Old Boy. Chris also enlisted the unpaid support of Eddis Linton, an Old Boy and ex-serviceman, who had shown a strong interest and skill in researching areas of the Project. Eddis took on the job of writing about Shore Old Boys who were taken as prisoners of war under the Japanese. A period of intense writing followed until April, when the firsr completed draft was available for the committee. The launch was set for Remembrance Day 1999 and the dictum, 'Lose not a minute' was deeply ingrained in the staff. The project had entered a new, less public stage, orientated towards the immovable deadlines required by a publication schedule. The most difficult task was deciding what was in and what was out. The historical Section I had to be reduced, the service records.of Section II had to be polished and the reminiscences of Section III had to be curtailed. Help came from a great many sources during this rime. Brian Watson carefully perused the Roll of Honour, and Mike Elliot, Andrew Warden and Eddis Linton applied equal rigour to Section II. The historical Section I was read by over 20 'peer reviewers' and their suggestions taken into account in the production of a final, reduced ( words) draft. The reminiscences were chosen, edited to a paltry words and reviewed. At every stage there always seemed to be another mountain to conquer. Each Section of the book was the size of a volume itself, and often the staff felt that three books were in order rather than one. The launch :date bore down Without ceasing and there was little time to rest when the first portions of the book were sent to the graphic designers to be readied for the printer. As one part was 'finished' another would be ready for proofing. The final checking was probably the hardest stage of all involving constant reading and rereading of a never-ending stream of page proofs. Inevitable disasters occurred and little sleep was had by Liz Purdue's graphic design team and Chris Hewett. The impossible was achieved and by early October the printer's proofs were 'signed-off and emergency sprints to the designers in Crows Nest ceased. The first copy weighed in at two and a half kilos which,. after two years, is. a poor reflection of the time and work that went into its production. After two years the characters of The Torch Beafers have become real participants m the lives of the committee, and especially the editors. It has been a pleasure meeting the living 'Torch Bearers' and learning about the human side of these often technically presented points of history. Especially poignant has been the detail gathered on those whose lives did not extend beyond the war. Their names leap out of the Honour Boards and memorials that dot the School, bringing to mind the facts of their service, a portion of a letter perhaps, or a photograph. It is the wish of the editors that each name might come alive for all who read The Torch Bearers. 30

29 REMEMBRANCE DAY SERMON lith November 1999 Bishop Donald Robinson AO Moses spoke to the people of Israel as they approached the Promised Land: 'Take heed lest you forget the Lord, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out ofthe house of bondage' [Deuceronomy 6 verse 17]. The obligation of remembrance is part of our solidarity as a community of people, both as a nation and also as a more intimate company of members of a body such as this school. What we remember on an occasion like this are especially the personal qualities and vinues of those who, when our country was called co arms, sacrificed their own interests and hopes for the benefit of others. The foundation of this Chapel was laid in May 1914, before there was any expectation of war in Europe; it was opened a year later, in May 1915, within a few days of the news of the Allied landing at Gallipoli, which was the beginning of the first major campaign in which forces of the Commonwealth of Australia were included. This Chapel quickly became a shrine of remembrance, as the windows and brass memorials along its side walls solemnly and sadly testify. Those of us who were here at school in the Sixth Form in 1939 may recall being assembled on the front lawn near the arch before we dispersed for the August vacation. The Chief addressed us and warned us that by the time we returned for the third term in September Australia might well be at war. And so it proved; the six years of World War II had begun. Today we will begin to share some of the personal remm1scences of participation in that World War and of subsequent conflicts over the last.60 years. But in this Chapel, and in a service of Christian worship in which we invoke the name of the Lord Our God, it is important that we do not focus solely on the scenes of our human experience. Our east window behind me reminds us that, to use the words of David in Psalm , 'the Lord has established His throne in the Heavens, and His kingdom rules over all'. The language of war and fighting which is common enough in the New Testament, especially in the Epistles of St Paul, does not there refer to physical combat, but to the spiritual warfare in which, as humans made in the image of God but subject to satanic and demonic hostility, we are all caught up. 'For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against 31

30 the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take the whole armour of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having don~ all, to stand'. So writes St Paul in his Letter to the Ephesians. I recall attending an Anzac Day service in this Chapel with my father, in the 1930s. The address was given by a Master, Mr I F Jones, one of my own teachers. He spoke with his usual. precision and perception about the Gallipoli campaign. Then at the end he directed us to another and higher loyalty: 'But it is neither of king nor of country that it is said: "whose service is perfect freedom"'. The last book of the Bible is an unveiling of the reality beyond this temporal world. h is a vision given in symbolic form to St John on the island of Patmos. John records that he saw Heaven opened, and 'behold, a white horse. He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war... He is clad in a robe dipped in blood, and His Name by which He is called is The World of God. And those who are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful'. Our earthly experiences, whether in war or in peace, are not separate from our commitment to God's victorious Son, our Saviour and Lord: they are the arena in which we are called to exercise our trust in Him, co act in His name and in His service, and in t~e cause of His kingdom and righteousness. This Son of God, who is elsewhere depicted as a Lamb as though slain yet as a conqueror, also has His book of remembrance, and it is those 'whose names are written in the Lamb's book of life' who enter into the joy of God's eternal glory. 'Take heed lest you forget the Lord, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.' Just over a century ago, as part of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee celebrations, Rudyard Kipling, then 31, at the request of The Times wrote what became known as the Recessional: God of our F others, known of old, Lord of our far-flung battle line. The setting of his hymn-like poem was Great Britain's 'dominion over palm and pine', and this vision of Empire in its heyday is said to have bet?n partly inspired by the great naval review at Spithead. But the theme of the Recessional is anything but triumphalist. The constant refrain 'lest we forget' Kipling took from the verse m Deuteronomy which I have used as my text and is used in ceremonies of remembrance, and on countless memorials. But in Kipling's Recessional it refers, not to the fallen as it has generally come to be applied, but to God, as in the words of Moses from which Kipling took the phrase: 'Take heed lest you forget the Lord': the Lord who redeemed you, the Lord in whose hand your breath is, and whose are all your ways, the Lord who himself took responsibility to be your God and to overthrow your spiritual foe since you had no power ofyourselfto help yourself. Your part is to remember all that the Lord in His infinite grace and power has done for you, and to bring to Him the only offering you can -your acceptance and trust: The tumult and the shouting dies, The captains and the kings depart; Still stands Thine ancient sacrifice, A humble and a contrite heart. Lord God of hosts, be with us yet, Lest we forget- lest we forget. 32

37 POLISHED PENNIES ADDRESS by CJL Hewett I want to tell you a story about a Shore boy. His name is Tom Walton. His first Polished Pennies Service was ar the age of eleven, when he was in First Form. He travelled to School each day from Neutral Bay for the first few years of his schooling, but later became one of the 'inmates', as he and his friends referred to themselves, of School House. He played Rugby and rowed, achieving a place in the 3rd crew by his final year. He was an ordinary boy, though one thing marked him from the rest of his contemporaries - he was the School boxing champion. 'T'hesc were days when Shore coached boxing. The year Tom left Shore the Second World War erupted and he enlisted in the Army, going to camps at Ingleburn and Bathurst. He was roo young ro join a fighting unit, but his boxing continued, he even won some competitions within the Army. \Vhen his time came to join an infantry battalion and move w the front, he did so with enthusiasm. Now what would you expect of a boy who joins the Army straight out of school and has made a n~me as a boxing champion? A boy who enthusiastically goes to war? You might expect him w be a rough sorr of character-the type of broad shouldered Aussie that spoke little and drank a lot. If that is what you expect, then you will be surprised w learn that Tom didn't carry a rifle. He even wore glasses, and, outside the ring, he didn't seek a fight, not with his Army comrades nor with the enemy. He was a Christian you see and rather than fight he volunteered as a stretcher bearer. Stretcher bearers accompanied the first troops, administering first-aid and carrying the wounded back to the doctors in places of reladve safety. The work required extreme bravery 3nd coolheadedness. As the bullets were ftying and bombs exploding Tom would respond to cries of his mates and come to their aid. Perhaps his bouts in the ring enabled him to keep his head and maintain his composure in moments of intense pressure. Yet he did more than that. At one stage of the fighting his company, about 100 men, was suddenly attacked by over 300 Japanese. The auack came from three sides at once very early one morning, catching the sleeping Australians by surprise. Before long the position they held was untenable and they had to withdraw. The official report records that Tom showed, 'outstanding devotion to duty. With utter disregard for his personal safety, and under intense enemy fire, he tended the wounded, dressing their wounds with great medical skill.' 37

38 The Australians had to fight their way out. Speed and cohesion were required if all the men were to escape the net that was rapidly encircling them. With expert discipline the company extricated itself, yet one man remained. He had been hit badly in the leg and was unable to walk unassisted. Even with help he could only walk at a snail's pace. Despite the encroaching Japanese who any moment threatened to close the only escape route, Tom Walton remained with this man and helped him to safety. That man's life, without doubt, was saved because of WaltOn. Tom was twenty-one at the rime. Tom was awarded the Military Medal for this action, but he would have been the first to say he was only doing his duty. He would have added that he was only following the example set for him by jesus. Whenever a man in his unit was wounded, Tom could be relied upon to tend to him. He was devoted to the men of his unit. We know this because he kept a diary, and in it he wrote of his love and concern for the men. We also know what those men thought of him. His company commander wrote, 'I don't d1ink anyone could find a more sincere, unselfish, or earnest chap anywhere, and his dependability and courage were undoubted.' That fact made what was to come all the more tragic. In July 1945, only months before the end of the war, Tom went into battle as he had many times before. This time he did not return. Whilst he tended the wounded he himself was killed. As he was buried, according to witnesses, tears flowed from battle-hardened soldiers 'like it was someone's mother who had died'. Next Sunday is Anzac Day, the day that, as Australians, we remember those who- have died in the service of their country at war. We are not honouring or glorifying war, far from it. Each of the plaques in this building is a testament against war. Each one represents a life cut short, for you see that for every one of the names on these plaques and at the entrance to the War Memorial Hall, which is now the library, and on the boards at Northbridge and the many other plaques around the School, for each one of these names there was once a boy. A boy whose future lay before him exactly as yours does now. Tommy Walton sat where you are now, underneath the plaques as you are. That is what we are doing today and on each Anzac Day- remembering the flesh and blood, the hopes and joys, the pains and fears that were a Shore Boy's life cut short by the tragedy of war. V\'e remember them and the sacrifice they made; and we exhort each other to continue in the spirit with which they were imbued so that they did not die in vain. What is that spirit? It is the spirit of community service, of duty to humanity, of seeking the good of others above our own desires. It is sacrificial and it is humble. It is not the attitude of hostile competition, nor is it one that searches for enemies. In fact the opposite. Unfortunately it is also becoming rarer and rarer as society forgers the lessons of the Second World War and dismantles the structures that that generation established so that such an event would not happen again. Rare as it is, yet it is one of the founding principles of this School. Jesus said that no man has greater love than this that he gives up his life for his friends; and Jesus did just that, giving up his life for others, even for 38

39 people who hated him, so that we might live. Tommy Walton did it. Every rime he rushed to answer the cry of a wounded comrade he ignored the instinct of self-preservation and put himself in danger. In the heat of battle, his thoughts were of others. Let me tell you about another couple of Shore Boys. Walter Sheaffe was at Shore just long enough w experience the first ever Polished Pennies Service. He was 18 and in his final year. He was a twin, and with his brother he lived in Robson House. Their family property was, still is, at Boolligal near Hay. The year after Sheaffe left, Peter Minnett started at Shore at age 14. He was a resident of Manly, but that was roo far w travel each morning so he too became an 'inmate' of School House with Tommy Walton. Walter Sheaffe and Peter Minnetr both enlisted in the same anillery unit when war broke out in 1939, the 2/!Sth Field Regiment. Sixteen other Shore Old Boys joined that unit. They were sent to Singapore and after a brief and bloody campaign Walter and Peter, with 70 other Shore Old Boys, were taken into captivity by the Japanese. On the 15th February 1942 these men spent their first nighr in Changi Gaol in Singapore. Now if you know anything of the experiences of Australian prisoners of war of the Japanese in the Second World War then the name Changi should send a shiver down your spine. h is a name synonymous with suffering. Yet, the prisoners 1 own accounts refer to it with something approaching affection. For the work camps of Thailand, Burma, Manchuria and Japan were worse by far than Changi prison. It was to these camps that Walter and Peter were sent as part of the force to build the railway from Thailand deep into Burma. The first indication of what lay in store was the train trip through Thailand. 'T'he men were herded into goods cars, 25 co a car, so that there was not enough room to lie or even sit. The vans were made of steel with little ventilation and in the tropical sun the men baked. Those thar had water in their bottles shared it around, bur it soon ran out and there was nothing to do bur to hold shirts and groundsheets over those who had fainted. In Burma Peter and Walter worked on the infamous Hellfire Pass Cutting. They sledghammered through solid rock for 10 to 12 hours a day until both of them came down with malaria. When the first wave of fever passed they were back at the cutting, expending their waning strength. All around them death was ever present. There were the constant fevers of malaria and dysentery and fatal epidemics of cholera. Sheaffe wrote, 'you did not know where you would be 24 hours ahead. It was not a life-it was merely an existence and just one at that.' In the midsr of this Peter and Walter became the best of friends and relied on each other for strength to keep going. At one rime they were both recuperating in a rest camp and began a small business making toffee. They didn't let the circumstances overwhelm them, but did what they could to improve their lot and ensure their survival. In time the railway was finished and the prisoners were returned to Ch<ingi. What a relief it was to be back there!'yet it was nor to last long. Peter and Walter were this time herded into the cramped cabins of a rusty old steamer for the long journey to Japan. They left Singapore as part of a convoy of 14 ships. En route the ':. ~,:., 39

40 convoy was attacked by American submarines-they had no idea as to the cargo-and the ship behind Peter and Walter~s was sunk. They weren't the only Shore Boys in those ships-'hellships' as they were called. James Stedman, who left Shore in 1940, was drowned with the torpedoed ship. The convoy continued on and as it passed the top of the Philippines a typhoon struck, forcing them into a harbour. Eventually Peter and Walter arrived in japan. From the oppressive humidity of equatorial jungles the pa1r found themselves in the bitter snows of a japanese winter. If it were not for the hot showers in their camp the men would have frozen. Ironically the men worked in a copper mine far below the surface of a mountain, where the heat was terrific and sweat poured off their bodies as they chipped through rock and carted the rock to the surface. In this camp Peter became sick again. It could have been a relapse of malaria or beri beri from the poor diet; it could have been any number of illnesses. There was nothing unusual in being sick. Yet this time he just wasn't getting better. There was a lack of fresh vegetables and nothing in the way of medical supplies. Meanwhile the prisoners would see American planes overhead on a regular basis and could feel that the war would soon be over, and they were right. Walter would visit Peter every evening when he returned from the mine bringing with him food he had scrounged. They would talk about the war ending and reflect on how far they had come together. During this time Peter remained cheerful, but Walter began to realise that his death was near. Peter knew it too. One day in July 1945 Walter rewrned from the mine and went to visit Peter as usual. He was told that he had died that morning. Walter wrote, 'Even though I was partly prepared for it, it was a terrific shock to me. We were the very best of mates always and his death was a very real blow to me. Peter was always so cheerful and jolly no mauer how things were. That did a lot to help us keep our chins up too.' After many battles, months of slave labour, constant exposure to various diseases, surviving torpedo attacks and typhoons their friendship came to an end. A friendship that is another expression of the spirit we saw in Tommy Walton. Tommy Walton gave his life on the battlefield; Walter and Peter gave their lives every time they shared their pitiful rations or precious water. They did not give up, but kept each other moving forward, looking out for one another and carrying each other's burdens. These three men demonstrate the motto of this school, VITAl LAMPADA TRADUNT - Carry on the Torch of Life. The torch of the First World War generation was passed to them as they sat where you are sitting now and they and the Second World War generation carried it in their time. No doubt you feel very far removed from the battlefields of the Second World War and the horrors of the Japanese work camps. Well believe me when I tell you that when 'Ibm, Walter and Peter sat in your seats dwse horrors were equally distant to them. The point I'm making is that they were no different from you. They lived in the same suburbs you live in; they boarded in the same Houses as you do; they went down the road for 40

41 lunch, they played at Northbridge, they worshipped in this building-they were ordinary Shore Boys. They were passed the torch in the Polished Pennies Service and now they pass it on to you. It is ironic char the greatest expression of chis spirit of service is so often found in war. Yet war i. nor the only place we can serve each other. We can exhibit rhe spirit of Anzac in every facet of our life, when we think in terms of belonging to a communi[) rather than as individuals only concerned for our own wants. So rhe question remains: The corch was passed co these three men; do you accept it from them?of the three men, only Sheaffe returned to Australia. He first sighted the Australian mainland at 6 am on the I Sth of October He wrote: 'Our feelings were very mixed, for naturally our thoughts were also of our maces who were not so fortunate as we were to be returning ro our homeland.'

44 JIKA TRAVERS A staff member recalls 'Mr Travers is a man of wide interests and many talents which he has used unsrinringly for the good of the School. He bas frequently been heard to encourage boys co "do many things well". Whatever their particular bene, they had no better example to follow than that of their own Headmaster.' These comments appeared in a valedictory article published in The Shore Ui>ekly Record on Tuesday, 3 May, 1984, the last dl!y of the twenty-five year Travers regime. The presenr writer was first appointed to tbe Shore sraff at the beginning of 1960; nothing that has occurred since then has caused him to disagree in any way with rhc view expressed in the SWR. Like all boys, at least in the writer's bearing, staff members always addressed the Headmaster by tide, as Sir, or as Mr Travers. They c~lways spoke about him as j ika, so Jika it will be in this article..lika's commanding presence, forcefuuy expressed opinions, legendary efficiency and often intimidating, steady gaze were all real enough. Equally real, however, though perhaps less obvious, were a certain gentleness and a quier watchfulness - an awareness of others and their problems. lt may seem strange ro speak of Jika as shy, bur shy be was in some ways. This shyness, as much as anything else, probably prevented many people, panicularly those who did not have many dealings with him, from seeing more than one dimension to the man, which is a great pity. jika knew a non-sportsman when he saw one, but this was really no big deal. After au, he was good enough ro appoint the writer co his staff (twice), however unwise this may have been! He did have a sense of humour and a sense of proponion - two qualities which are closely linked. The writer was engaged ro reach French, among orher things, and jika made the point at the first interview that a trip to France was essential before r.oo long, because "some boy will ask you a question about French winegrowing areas and they'll lose confidence in you if you can r speak from experience". lt is largely thanks co jika that rhis experience was eventually gained. Like anyone who is expected to speak in public often, let alone almost every working day, J ika made occasional verbal slips. Often he extricated himself most gracefully from these, as on the occasion when cwo plays were being staged at rhe School: See How They Rttrt and The Lion i11 lvt11ter. At a staff meeting, Jika referred to ''the production of See How the Lion Runs", noticed a few smirks and promptly said: "Ladies and Gentlemen, I always believe m 44

45 compression 11 He knew how to lighten an occasion. Once, a large number of staff, including the Headmaster, was travelling in the school bus to The King's School for a special Common Room Dinner. Somebody commented that 'all the young, respectable people were sitting at the back'. jika called out: "That's a contradiction. You can't be both!t' Assemblies were often long and serious, but they, roo, had their lighter moments. One wonders how many people remember the Headmaster saying to the boys: 'Please do not feed my dog, however good your imentions. One fat male is quite enough for one family'. Then there was probably rhe only occasion when Jika rook assembly minus his mortarboard- he'd lent it to a family member for a degree ceremony. 'I apologise', he told the crowd, 'for appeanng before you regimentally naked.' After a trip abroad, Jika held a slide evening for the staff. He and Mrs Travers had been to a number of European countries, including France, and had photographed the Republican Guard on parade in Paris. Through some quirk, the Republican Guard also appeared in photos taken in several other countries. jika apologised a number of times for 'interference from the French Resistance'_ For Jika, sport was, of course, of enormous importance. Both consciously and unconsciously he used sporting, especially footballing, metaphors to illuscrate general points he was making, both to boys and staff. Some thought he went: too far in this respect and he was well aware of this. Yet he really deplored the 'We are the greatest' attitude and, when the School won the GPS Football Premiership in 1969, after a long drought, Jika was low-key, even slightly embarrassed at times by all the fuss. jika was direct. If he needed someone to fill a vacancy on the staff, he often went straight to what was called the Appointments' Board of the University of Sydney, for example, and then telephoned the possible candidate himself to arrange a meeting. People on leave overseas in Jika's time can recall telephone calls from him asking them to return earlier than planned to help with a crisis. On many occasions, he would take over a class himself when a staff member was likely to be absent for any length of time, particularly in subjects like French and His tory where he had special expertise. On one social occasion in the sixties he introduced the writer to a visitor as 'the man who teaches Honours French' and labelled himself as 'the man who coaches Honours Football'. The truth of the matter is that Jika could handle both expertly, but chose not to say so. It was sometimes said that ]ika was rather easily side-tracked when he was teaching. The fact is that he knew how to get the best out of boys and he was totally professional. It should be said, too, that he was not one to bear grudges, formidable as he could be as a disciplinarian. He was also very conscious that, as Headmaster, he had an automatic advantage over other members of staff when it came to maintaining discipline. He used this advantage very wisely and was most genuinely, and generously, supportive of his staff. jika was undoubtedly conservative in his political leanings, but he kept an open mind when dealing with 45

46 individuals. As in so much else, he set a good example. When talking to a group of senior boys in the middle seventies about 'respect for constitutional authority', he remarked: 'I don't like the Federal Government, but I respect its authority'. When he be~ame Headmaster of Shore in 1959, jika had just completed a successful period as Headmaster of Launceston Grammar. His impressive record at school, at university, in the army, and on the sporting field, was well known. Yet even for him, it can't have been an easy task to take over from LC Robson and to be in charge of his Old School, whose staff included some of his old mentors. That things worked out so well is a tribute wall concerned, and especially to Basil Holmes Travers, co whom so many of us owe more than we realise. (OJ Rossell) BHTRAVERS The following is the text of an address by the Headmaster at the first Assembly of the School following the recent death of the School's fifth Headmaster, Mr BH Travers. During the recent vacation, as many of you would know, Mr BH Travers passed away. On 4 January we were privileged co hold a Thanksgiving Service for him attended' by almost sao pe~ple. Mr Travers was Headmaster of this school from 1959 until May He had attended Shore as a boy from 1928 to 1937, having obtained colours for athletics, Rugby and cricket, and being Senior Prefect. He was a fine scholar, and became NSW Rhodes Scholar attending Oxford University after the Second World \Var. During the war he was an early volunteer for the AIF being aidede-camp to Major General Ivan McKay and later Brigade Major in New Guinea where he was awarded the OBE and was mentioned in dispatches-as a result of his service. The prominence of his sporting capacity and enthusiasm was to reach its major fulfilment during his time at Oxford University. He won blues for cricket and Rugby, representing the University in each of these together with athletics. He was Captain of the Oxford Rugby team and played several matches for England. Nearly half a century later he is still remembered for his Rugby prowess in the UK. When he returned w Australia he coached NSW and was also an Australian selector and coach during 1951 and Mr Travers taught for a time at Wellington College in the UK, at Cranbrook, and then became Headmaster of Launceston Grammar before his Headmastership of Shore which extended over 25 years. If you look at his portrait which hangs in the War Memorial Hall, you will see that the artist, Graham Inson, has ' captured s omething of the strength of the man. J chink it shows in his hands and in his face. Jika Travers was resolute. His arrival at particular points of view was a produce of a high level of intelligence carefully applied to the issues at hand. Once he had reached a view on something, his position was almost unassailable. As has so often been said by those who worked under him or srudied under him, or were coached by him 'you knew where you stood'. Physically, he was a very large man, standing about 190cm (6'3") and in his prime probably weighing over 100 kilos. 46

47 Because of his physical stature, his abilities, and his forthrighmess, he was widely known throughom educational circles and indeed in far wider circles. There were many who were daunted by him, and one of the sadnesses is that too many never had the opportunity, nor sought it, to find out how kind a person he was underneath the rather tough exterior. I know of situations where he went out of his way to help boys, staff, or others. I was the recipient of such personal generosity some 20 years before I ever came near Shore. It is of course in the nawre of things that someone who is forthright and given to srrong views, frequently develops a dichotomy of responses from those who relate to him. jika Travers evoked a negative response among some who for example found his unyielding nature hard w accept. On the other hand there were many who were deeply appreciative of all his finest qualities, including his strength of purpose. B H Travers was held in awe by some, but certainly widely respected. In many ways he was larger than life. Even people who didn't know him personally... often. had a story about him. He leaves us with many fine legacies in this school. He had a passion for Rugby, and very quickly he established Rugby on a new footing in the Schoolone which we go on enjoying to this day. He would readily turn his hand to all sorts of subjects and would gladly take the place of an absent teacher to teach a subject which one might have regarded as not being his forte. Together with others responsible for the financial administration of the school, he husbanded our resources carefully and I was aware on arriving at the School in 1984 that the School had a marvellously solid base of physical and financial resourcing, together with sound inherent qualities. During his Headship the Benefactors building, together with the Robson Reading Room, the Gym and Pool, the Library and Playfair Hall, and renovations to Barry and Hodges, were constructed. When he retired, jika Travers had been a dominant figure for more than a quarter of the life of the school and was its fifth Headmaster. It was sad that within a comparatively short space of time following retirement he was afflicted through a stroke, which limited his capacity to be more involved in the School for which he had such a huge affection. He did enjoy however seeing grandsons going through the school, and he was a frequent visitor to Northbridge for GPS Rugby fixtures. His interest in the School and its welfare was also evident more recently 10 the establishment of the BH Travers Scholarship providing full fee remission for a boy repeating HSC year. It is a fitting reflection of his own appreciation of the value of such a year for a boy. It is understandable and desirable that one who was so accomplished and who served the School so faithfully over such a long period should have left a great legacy from which we can all benefit. May we be worthy of the torch which he has passed on to us. Vitai Lam pad a Tradidit 47

48 FRENCH TRIP Castles and Battlefields It was a mixed group that assembled at Sydney International Airport on the first day of the September holidays for the School trip: France - Castles and Battlefields. Few of us knew each other well, and there were also quite a number of schoolmasters present (a daunting thought for some of the boys!). Endless hours of in-flight movies and Cokes ended with our arrival at Charles de Gaulle Airport and the first steps on foreign soil for some. Driving towards Paris early on a late summer morning was an exciting prospect for all The first day was certainly one of the best. Despite our jetlag, the voyage of discovery around Paris was truly amazing. Mr Patrick agreed that if we were forced to return home at the end of that day it would still have been well worth the effort. The Arc de Triomphe, Eiffel Tower, Place de Ia Concorde and River Seine all lived up to their repucarions. We were informed that the government of Paris spends five times as much on preservation of its landmarks as their counterparts in London, and it shows. 'T'he Avenue des Champs Elysees and other famous parts of the sprawling city are all in very good condition, especially considering the age and fragility of some sites. The Palace of Versailles was breathtaking. Built over several years by 20,000 labourers and craftsmen, it was the home of Louis XIV and every member of the French aristocracy during his reign. The palace itself was immense, housing thousands of people, and decorated in gold and marble that flows endlessly through the rooms. The gardens, all in neat condition with barely a leaf out of place, stretch towards the horizon. In the gardens Marie Antoinette built a hobby farm that looked like something out of a fairy tale, housing two of every kind of domesticated animal. She had it built to show her understanding of and affiliation with the peasants of France. One must ask how many of the peasants for whom she was so quing suffered under crippling taxes to fund such developments, however. The Louvre in Paris is quite simply the greatest collection of art of all kinds on the planet. Walking around the Louvre, one can see the 'Mona Lisa\ Canova's 'Amore e Psiche' and examples of artwork from every period of art and history since the earliest times of man. As Mr Whiley pointed out, the museum is tangible evidence of all the goodness and compassion of humanity. With the next leg of our trip, the battlefield tour began with a visit to Ypres, part of the allied World War I salient that was held and attacked at such a devastating cost of life on both sides. It 48

49 was mind blowing to VISit the place where over 500,000 became casualties of war, and ro see the small area that they suffered for. The playi ng of the Last Post at Menin Gate one night, as has been done almost continuously since 1927, was one of the most moving experie nces l have ever witnessed. As the cune played by five buglers echoed around the scone walls on which are written the names of many thousands of men whose bodies were oever recovered from the battlefields, I W<1s almost overcome by feejjngs of sorrow at the waste of life, and pride in rhc knowledge that my fe llow Australians gave such a sacrifice so unselfis hly for my safety. We visited the densely packed cemete ries of many thousands of Australian, British and German soldiers killed in the First World War. Cemeteries are dotted in surprising numbers across the rolllng hills chat from swam in the blood of young men like me. Ar one place, a German cemetery was filled with the graves of unknown soldjers, some gravestones stating simply 'The grave of twenty unknown German soldiers of the Grear War'. Tn all of t:be cemeteries the near rows of clean white graves are a paradox co the death chat most of them experienced. Although few remember rhe Grear War, it has left a strong imprint on the minds and souls of many Frenchmen, especially in the small towns and villages. As we approached the v illage of Villers-Bretroneuux we all knew about the sacrifice that Australian soldiers had made ro defend it and rhe school that was built there by the donations of the schoolchildren of Victoria, but we were astonished by the place when we arrived. After alighting from the bus we walked ro the school, on the corner of Rue de Melbourne and Rue Victoria. Wa lking down the ha!jway, we saw the message 'Do nor forget the Australians', written above rhe blackboard in French in every classroom. The same message was displayed on a wall in the playground, dominating the whole area. There was even a museum Ln the school. dedkated ro the Australians who fought for rhe defence of VilJers-Brettoneaux and carvings of all types of Australia fauna adorned the school hall. Again I beamed with patriotic pride as 1 walked through rhis extraordinary place. Touring d1rough other World War I battlefields. visiting museums dedicated to the war, and hearing statistics about the war, r was amazed by the absolute and utter drain that the Western Prone m<tde on the economies and people of Western Europe. For four years, the rwo lines of rrenches rhat srretched 760 kilometres from the English C hanne l ro the Swiss AJps were a vacuum of money, weapons, food and men that had to be continually fed with greater and greater sacrifices, and lirrle, if any, benefit except for the occasional gain of a few metres. 'Waste' is the only accurate description of every tiny resource that was fed into that chu.rnijlg. hungry monster over the duration of the war. The Great War of 1914 to 1918 was nor rhe war to end all wars, as most believed. Twenry-five years later the whole of Europe was under the cloud of rhe Nazis, and the Normandy invasions were the combined British, French, American and Canadian attempt to liberate Europe once agaln. Our visit to this a re~! was of great interest to us as we could easily compare the med1ods of warfare in both wars. Despite the new 49

50 methods, however, rhe invasions were still incredibly dangerous. Our visit ro Omaha Beach, the landing on wbich was depicted in the Spielberg blockbuster Savi11g Ptivatc Rya11, was another very moving experience, as it is the eternal home of thousands of America n soldiers who died there and in Europe during World War 11. Ic was hard to believe that chis sunny place of newly mown grass, neat gravestones and twittering bi rds was the exact same place where 1000 of the first wave of 2500 infantrymen were ki lled in a matter of minutes. As T wandered in safety through the park 1 wondered how humans could cause this suffering, and why it had happened so soon after the devastation barely a generation beforehand. The next leg of the tour was our visit to various castles in France. The Chateaux de Chenonceaux, de Chjnon and de Blois were only some of the examples of the astounding architecture of French castles. Mom Saint-Michel, built over a thousand years ago and extended over the centuries, is one of the most fascinating buildings l have ever come across. It is on a rock rhat jucs out of the Bay of Saine Malo, an area of tidal flats that is cur off completely from the mainland at high tide. The skill in building this abbey so long ago with the limired technical and architectural knowledge of the Dark Ages is quire amazing. The tour was rounded off by our visit to Chartres Cathedral, built hundreds of years ago but still archicecrurally advanced coday. There is a distance of 47 metres from the ground to tbe roof, which is supported by massive, thick pillars that reach almost to the sky, like j ack's beanstalk. The stained glass windows of glass so rich in colour that it cannot even be reproduced roday, make the cathedral even more beautifu l. Our trip back co Charles de Gaulle was indeed a sad one. Ahead of us was a long trip and exams for most; behind us was one of the mosc enjoyable and educational adventures that one could possibly musrer, that 1 dare say even rivals che advenrures of Tintin and Milou! Of course it would not have been possible without the efforts of Mr. Patrick and Miss Stone, ro both of whom we are au very appreciative. 1t was a brilliant rrip, well recommended co everyone.

51 CHAPEL NOTES 'You make your decisions) then your decisions make you' One of the realities of life is that our lives turn on the decisions we make. You decide w marry a particular person, and from that moment many opnons are excluded and certajo JOys and responsibilities are now yours. You decide w form a pannership, or something as small as your decision as to what house to rent or buy. These choices shape us for better or worse. Maturity involves embracing the dreadful reality of choices. We have a magnificent Chapel due to the decisions of others. There is such a thing as Shore School because of decisions made by men now largely forgotten by those who benefit from their decision. We make many of the decisions that greatly influence our destiny, hardly aware of what we are doing. Chapel is an event that keeps reminding us of the decisions we must make and are making. Ir helps us to focus, ro decide rarher than to drift. It calls us to think clearly and realistically abom ourselves, our Creawr and about the basis of our decision-making. Special Events With decisions in mind, this year Forms V and VI had a number of special meenngs for the traditional Lent Mission. A variety of speakers shared their reasons for the decision w be men who rrusr and obey the Lord Jesus. Mr John Dickson, Dr Barry Newman and Rev. Marrin Pacula were the main speakers. The school celebrated the lloth Anniversary of our Foundation with special Chapel Services. Three Old Boys of vastly differing ages, explained how the decision to follow Christ, rather than to drift, had affected their lives. Starting from the most senior, the boys heard Bishop Donald Cameron, M r Andrew Campbell and Mr David Huxtable. These services were exceptional with a number of boys leading in prayers of thanks for the School, its founders and guides over the years, and seeking God 1 s continued blessing of our SchooL It was fascinating to see how different boys found different speakers particularly relevant and helpful. The Open Services were very well attended this year. Perhaps the highlight was the Middle School Open Service where Mr Nick Farr-Jones spoke about the importance of knowing Jesus Christ and doing His will with our lives. The other service that was particularly moving was the Form VI Family Service late in Term III. The Headmaster spoke on one of the Bible's most relevant themes, idolatry. This is 51

52 the decision abom what will be Ou.r 'god' or the cemral controlling reality that shapes and directs our lives. The Shore School Prayer Farewell was a very special moment for boys and parents. The generosity of these Sunday congregations was impressive. The Form I and the Form II Open Services each raised over $1,100 to dig wells in desert villages in India w save the women of these communities from walking for hours each day for water that is often very unhygienic. 'T'he Form VI service gave over $2,000 to be sent to East Timor. The Preparatory. School raised over $1,200 to support a Shore Old Boy translating the Bible into an aboriginal dialect. Weekly Se_rvices The weekly services in Chapel saw the boys exploring the books of Exodus, Proverbs, Luke, Mark and Timothy. We also explored some of the great Promises God makes to us, and some of the Questions that the Bible is asking us. Many of the staff added variety to the regular labours of M r Gray and Rev Powell. 2000AD Next year Chapel will cease to meet in Form Groups as it has for many years. In accord with the exciting change to seventeen Houses for the care and nurture of the boys in 2000, boys will come to Chapel in House groups. So we will have a cross-section of boys in Chapel from Form I to From VI. The Prep Chapel will remain unchanged. Also next year we will re-commence having Divinity in Forms V and VI. These are both very exciting developments.

59 SERVICE ACTIVITIES, CLUBS & SOCIETIES DEBATING & PUBLIC SPEAKING The 1999 GPS season was another successful chapter in the exciting story of Shore Debating in the 1990s. Nearly 60 boys participated m Debating (including chairmen) as we supplied 11 teams throughout the season, finishing with a win/loss ratio of 38/34. While these figures might not appear particularly impressive, it is worrh noting that our 9C team never debated against its own age group, invariably facing a lob or even a Thirds ream. Moreover, our Thirds frequently contained rwo if not three Form IV boys, again debating out of their age group. Finally, and in some ways most pleasing of all, despite the losses encoumered by our Year 7 and 8 teams (First and Second Form teams) the adjudicators were unanimous in praising the quality of the boys and their potential for great successes ahead. This season, for the first time, 7 A and 8A debates were adjudicated by 'neutral' adjudicators (in fact, they were the adjudicators assigned to the Firsts and Seconds reams later each evening). Therefore their words of encouragement are all the more meaningful and exciting as we look forward to these younger boys reaching senior teams. In the senior teams our fortunes were mixed. The Firsts suffered a surprise loss w The King's School in round one but recovered to win the next three rounds (including a rare and rewarding vicwry over St Ignatius' College) and emerge as genuine contenders for the Premiership. Another surprising loss, this time to Sydney High School, jeopardised our prospects but nonetheless the auditorium was packed a week later as we encountered front runners Sydney Grammar School in the penultimate round. Despite an embarrassing mix-up over the wording of the topic, Grammar were deserving winners to assure themselves of the Premiership. In the final round Shore defeated Newington College to earn equal third position on the ladder. This was a linle disappointing for james Bertouch, Michael Slack and Owen Cooper, who earlier in the year had lost the ISDA Grand Final by the barest margin, but their efforts in a season of bizarre topics and inexperienced adjudicators were highly commendable. james in particular was a most impressive speaker and a splendid Captain of Debating. He and Michael were selected in the GPS Seconds team to debate CAS and CHS teams, while Owen was selected as a reserve; the selection of all three members of our Firsts being a rare compliment to their ability.. ' ' 59

60 . ' The Seconds also began the season with a loss to The King's School and went on in the same vein, losing two of their next three debates. The line-up was heavily disrupted in these early weeks with various combinations of Bede Moore, Josh Belfield and James Greenwood joining David Cubbin in the side. Finally, a regular team was established and the boys went on to win two of their last three debates to finish in equal fourth position. Their prospects for greater success In 2000 are high especially as the First Team's Owen Cooper will be on hand to add his. experience to the team... The 10As were another impressive tream, winning a majority of their debates and displaying great wit and intelligence. It was the Year 9 teams (Form III) which were our strongest however, the 9As cominued on from their ISOA triumph by winning seven debates out of seven in the GPS competition and the 9Bs and 9Cs also acquirring themselves well. The 9As' vicrory over Newingron College in the final round was the culmination of a splendid year for David Burnett, Andrew Chivers, James Greenwood and David Millar, as well as coaches Mrs Comasrri, Mr Rybak and Simon Chambers. They are certainly a ream to watch as the 25d1 anniversary of our last GPS Firsts Premiership approaches. As noted above, the Year 7 and 8 teams (Forms I and II) were not especially successful in terms of wins and losses, bur were most impressive thinkers and speakers. The 8As (usually Alex Hopkins, Fergus Rourke and Scott Tilbury) were in fact our second most successful ream after the 9As and will surely go on to higher achievements in seasons to come. They have certainly told us so! Finally, mention must be made of our loyal supporters and faithful chairmen, without whose efforts and encouragement our reams would be lost. Cameron Colwell, Russell Copeman, Tom Duesbury, Brent Hudson and Gareth Samuel were outstandingly reliable and effective with the stopwatch and the bell, and were assisted by other worthy chairpeople on occasions. Similarly our travelling band of patient parents and sincere supporters deserve every commendation for braving so many cold wimer nights to urge the reams to greater heights. In particular, thanks are due to Dr and Mrs Cooper and Mr and Mrs Slack, who supported the Firsts through much tribulation, and above all to Dr and Mrs Bertouch, who ensured that the Debating Dinner was a wonderful conclusion to the season. THE ART OF RHETORIC This activity was introduced this year ro recognise and encourage public speaking at Shore. Every student in Forms I to IV fron1 all English sets participated and from each set, a boy was selected to compete in the finals. Each of those selected presented a prepared speech (three ro four minutes) and an impromptu speech (60 to 90 seconds). Honorary adjudicators Mrs Vallance, Mrs Elith and Mr Rybak marked competitors on the subject matter, delivery and planning of their speeches. All finalists deserve to be congrarulared for the effort they put into this competition. Many thanks to Mrs Vallance for coming back to the school to be the adjudicator and we look forward to seeing her again next year during the competition. 60

61 Form IV Here was a sport-obsessed year. Although some of the topics appeared to have far less than four minutes worth of rhetoric in them, many of the boys co_uld have gone on forever about evil Bert, or Joe rhe toll collector. They all did a wonderful job wirh rheir prepared speeches and took the impromptu topic 'The lighr at the end of the tunnel' in their stride. Congratulations should go especially to David Lane for winning the Form IV competition, but also to David Hayes for impressing the adjudicators with his interesting speech. Form IV Finalists: Tristan Oallas-'Society Going Into the 21st Century' Alex Wade-' Cricket' 10m Arnott-'Chinese New Year' David Hayes-' Animal Testing- Why?' Peter Lynar-'Abseiling' Matthew Hunter-'Sesame Street' Rodney Vowell-' Fishing' David Lane-' Why Are We Here?' Rob Mack-'Surfing' Luke Storrier-'The Toll Collector' Form III During the course of the competition it became apparent that some Form III boys have strange and wild ideas about wanting to take over the School, ideas which are best left with them. There was huge variety not only in the speech topics, but also in the presentation of the speeches themselves. All were very interesting to listen w and observe. The impromptu topic, 'The Real Thing', sorted out the winners from the losers. Commendations go to all the boys, but notably to James Greenwood on winning the Form Ill finals. Form III Finalists: James Greenwood-'The Power of Many' Chris Gatfield-'Violence on Television' Ben Hill-' Murphy's Law' Ashwyn Faulkingham-'Cop Outs' Matthew Jones-'Why School Doesn't Rule' Will Joseph-'Snowboarding' Chris Hutchinson-'Taking Over rhe School' Tom Rees-'Sydney Olympics' Duster Wallman-'Ice-cream' Peter Henderson-'The Car' Form II It appears that Form II love sports as well as a bit of a physical challenge. Again we were presented wit~ a great range of topics chat kept the whole audience, including the straight-faced Mrs Vallance, interested. The topic for the impromptu speeches was 'The Flavour of the Month'; one that proved to be rather resting. We h.eard of everything in the impromptus from strawberries and sugar to chilli chocolate pudding with leaves and special sauce, showing the great imagination of Form II boys. Well done to all boys, but. especially Evan Goodridge, the winner. Form II Finalists: Fergus Rourke-'The English Language' Evan Goodridge-' Disappearing Socks' Sandy Wellings-'Accents' James Woods-' Extra Terrestrials' Tim Studdy-'Roller Blading' Matthew Costello-'Mountain Bikes' Carl Ferris-'Rescuing Those Who Challenge' Ben Armstrong-' Bullying' Chris Azzi-'Contact Sports' 61

62 Form I There was great variety in the topics presented in the prepared section of the finals. The topic for the Form I Impromptu speeches was 'In the beginning...' and it was clear that Mr Powell had done a thorough job of teaching these boys the book of Genesis. Congratulations should go to all finalists, but especially to young Nic Newling who won rhe Form I competition. Form I Finalists: Nic Newling-'The Many Uses of the Plunger' Simon McKendry-'Politicians' Richard Phillips-'Sailing' Matthew Gardiner- 'The Roman Empire' Eddie Alexander- 'Boys and Girls are Both the Best' James "-7ant- 'Tsunamis' Nick Armstrong- 'A Zillion Dollars' Andrew McCarthy- 'Surf Life Saving' LIBRARY REPORT This has been a year of major change to the Shore Library and for all who work, learn and play therein. Library staff and volunteers knew there would be a greater than usual challenge but due to the efforts of all involved, and especially Mrs Whitfield and Miss Gibb, the library has continued to function flawlessly and provide Shore boys with all their research needs. The reason for this controlled confusion is the construction of the new library. The first part of the School's two stage building plan, which will eventually provide not only a new library but also, later, a new gymnasium, commenced construction at the beginning of the year. As the new, greatly expanded facility will occupy the same site as the outgoing building, the library was evacuated to a temporary location, the Memorial Halt The entire Shore community extends profuse thanks to the librarians who surrendered the better part of the festive season w this noble task. However, it should be stressed that the temporary location has none of the makeshift trappings normally associated with the word 'temporary'. Mrs Whitfield and the architects and builders invested a great deal of effort modifying the hall so that it would function efficiently. There is a distinct air of permanency about the library's present abode. In fact, many boys have praised the ambiance provided by the grand old building. The new library promises to surpass all current expectations of size and opulence with extra space to house the library's expanding collections, and glass w maxtmtse the harbour vtews. Furnishings have been selected and throughout the year, a selection of luxuriously comfortable chairs has been in the library for the purpose of approval testing by boys. The senior and deputy librarians have been most committed to this task. One hopes that such creature comfons will not detract from the scholastic pursuits of the boys who will enjoy the building after its opening in early To ensure that the new facility will not be under-used, 1999 has seen the purchase of an enormous quantity of books and equipment. In the first semester, Miss Gibbs and Mrs Whitfield paid several visits to specialist bookshops such as the one at the Art Gallery of New South Wales. The re>ulr was the 62

63 purchase of several thousand dollars worth of Visual Arts books. The library has also received sizeable donations from parents and friends of the School. On American Tea Day, a 34-volume art dictionary, valued at $9000 was on display and parents were invited to donate towards its cost. That the library has managed not only to survive but also w flourish in irs temporary abode is a triumph, and members of the School community are indebted to those who made it happen. Thanks must go first and foremost to Mrs Whitfield, Miss Gibbs and Mrs Hines, who have taken on extra responsibilities this past year. Gratitude is due as always to the 'Mending Mums', Mrs Harris, Mrs Saunders and Mrs Coutts. The library service boys have continued to work diligently, surpassing the already high expectations of them. This year for the first rime, Form IV boys have staffed the desk during peak periods. Rob Broadfoot, Alistair Chase. Wilson Cheng, Wesley Wong, Louis Wong and John Bell have provided invaluable assistance over the year as Form VI seniors. Finally, Elton Chan, in his capacity as deputy librarian, has shown dedication, capability and leadership far in excess of his years, and his efforts are much appreciated. One can only amicipate the heights, literal and figurative, which will be achieved by the library next year and in subsequent years. ROCK CLIMBING SUMMER Members of the rock climbing team this summer included: Low/medium grades: Luke Brabant, Jeff Cooper, Rob Stanton Cook Medium grades: "Ioby Blackman, Mat Craig, Mat jones, Vijay Khurana Higher grades: Mike Forward, Tim Hood, Alex Jones, Dave Kellerman Parems must wonder at times why it is that their son wishes to scale a vertical rock wall by gripping desperately onto small holds. Is it the adrenal in rush? Is it a primitive God-given instinct from deep within? Is it just the sheer thrill (or foolishness) of cheating gravity time over? Or is it the continuous satisfaction of setting and achieving a succession of goals after exerc1sing persistence, spurred on by your climbing partner? Despite this understandable wonder, all who choose to be an observer of this unique activity can be assured that there is a great deal of skill and courage demonstrated by those who choose to undertake it. Rock climbing challenges many of the senses and it is little wonder that it continues to attract such an enthusiastic group, year after year. The commencement of this season brought a number of newcomers to the team. As these newcomers had only experienced indoor climbing, many of the training sessions were directed towards the learning of climbing technique and ropework in preparation. for the more committing weekend 63

64 outdoor climbing. It cook the newcomers a while to become familiar with this climbing environment, and the responsibility of setting up safe rope protection systems. However by the end of the season progress was obvious. 1 01d hands' Tim Hood and Alex Jones have been particularly helpful and patient with their 'breaking in 1 and should be commended for this. Indeed all of the team should be commended on their commitment to safe practice thro~ghout the summer. While all climbers made progress with grade levels, the development of the medium grade climbers has been particularly noticeable and they should be congratulated. Of particular note was Mat Jones, who progressed to a preliminary lead climbing level, and Mat Craig, who developed a smooth and effective climbing style. Tim, Alex, Dave and Mike have continued to consolidate their abilities in the higher grades and continue active and regular involvement in associated activities outside the school program. These include employment with gym and outdoor groups and participation in local, interstate and international climbing trips in their free time. They have set precedents for the younger climbers to follow. Over the last few years the program has become more and more varied. Saturday climbing trips this summer included five overnight visits to sites outside the Sydney area. We are graceful to the Jones family for organising occasional Friday night accommodation at the 'Overton residence' in Mt Victoria where some very memorable evenings were spent. The venues for the trips included Mount Piddington, an exciting ascent the 'Second Sister', Sunbath, Hay Tree Towers, The Noisy Place, Centennial Glen and Evans Crown (near Tarana). Many thanks to Mr Stevenson for his assistance with the Three Sisters trip in After another terrific season, all climbers are encouraged 0 keep practising the skills that they have learnt and to jump at the chance of being involved in any offer of adventurous activity that comes their way. Finally, the International climbing competition 'Escalade' is to be held this year at M < Victoria and parcicipating team members are wished the very best. for this. ROCK CLIMBING WINTER SO Abbott, TA Blackman, AL Barnett, MD Craig, PRM Jansen, ART Jones, MCM Jones, AA McKinnon During Terms II and III rock climbing continued under the supervision of Mr Grimes and Mr Dunstan with boys from Forms III and V participating. About half of the team had done rock climbing as a sport at Shore previously. The combination of boys with and without experience worked well, with the 'old hands' showing the way and helping to get the new boys up to speed. As usual there was a strong emphasis on learning or revising the safety techniques required in ropework. Each Tuesday was spent at the 'Climb Fit' gymnasium in St Leonards where the team tackled many of the slabs, vertical and overhanging walls as well as roofs at this northside mecca for climbers. Boys progressed from 'green' and 'blue' routes to the more difficult 'yellows'. Alex Jones managed a number of 'red' routes which 64

65 were fairly extreme. A favourite pastime was 'bouldering' - doing short gymnastic 2m to 3m routes above crash pads without the need for a rope. On Thursdays the ream visited a number of sandstone outcrops around Sydney including Lind field Rocks, Sissy Crag, the cave at West Lindfield and Queen's Park at VVaverley. These areas provided the opportunity to climb on real rock and do some more arm-wrenching boulder problems. On Sawrdays the team visited cliffs near Sydney such as Berowra, Narrabeen, Barren joey (Palm Beach) and the Cathedral at \Voronora, as well as trips to Mt Keira ncar Wollongong and Mt York, Centennial Glen and Katoomba in the Blue I\1oumains. All the climbers reached a good standard of competency. Some highlights were 'Aunty Jack' and 'Atomic Punk' at ~It York, 'Septic Penguins' and ''lechnorabble' at Narrabeen (steep side) and 'Ladder of Gloom', 'Fox/Pox/Sox' and 'Look's Poxable' at Berowra. Alex Jones led a number of bolted 'sport routes', while Peter Jansen did his first lead at Woronora. In what seems to be something of a tradition at the end of the season, five of the team with the addition of exclimbing member Tim Hood made an ascent of the '\\lest Wall' route on the Three Sisters. This was a cold but exhilarating experience. Overall it was an excellent season, with all concerned gaining in fitness and confidence in this challenging sport. CHESS In interschool chess this year, Shore fielded three teams, in the junior, intermediate and senior categories. All of the teams played against other schools from the Sydney metropolitan area in the NSW Schools Chess Championship. The Senior team was composed of a versatile group of boys,. Tom \Vaterhouse, Tom Gibson, Ben Crowe and Greg Parker. This team competed well and enjoyed mixed success. The Intermediate team did very well in its division, only dropping one game against a particularly strong Manly side. That single game would have destroyed the team's hopes of making the finals, but Manly were to go on to drop several games later in the season. T~is year's Intermediate ream was the first 'to make the regional finals. So with high hopes the team went off co face J\1anly again, feeling quietly confident. Alas, in very close fought matches Shore lost 3-1. Congratulations to Charles Knox, Peter Dymock, Kingsley Cooper, josh Griffiths and Ashwyn Falkingham on a great season. The Juniors also performed admirably during this year winning six of their eight games. To heap further praise on them, the juniors were playing in the particularly difficult Third Division, which made six games our of eight a very respeccable score, putting them equal second. Congratulations to Scott Kirkland, Adam Wood, Giles Hambley and \\'ill Lumsdaine on a constructive, and promising season. Next year's chess will benefit from this year's experience. 65

Where once young men were prepared for service in the RA.AF, now the aim is the development of leadership skills through activicies that are closely associated with the parent organisation, the RAAE Parades are held on Monday afternoons. The program of instruction is common throughout the Squadron and covers a wide range of activities including field craft, service knowledge and flying related subjects. Squadron promotion courses are held during the Christmas and Mid-year vacation periods. Promotion depends upon success at these camps. : Promotions JNCO 1/99 (January) CDTCPL E Cousins CDTCPL C Knox ]NCO 2/99 (June) CDTCPL T Arnott SNCO 2/99 (June) CDTCPL C Knox (Promotion to CDTSGT in 2000) Transfers PLTOFF (AIRTC) MS Palmer transferred to 2 FLT. Mark had been us since 1992 and had given good service to our flight. We wish him well. Bivouac This year's bivouac was held over the four days, September, in relatively fine weather at the Katoomba Airfield, Medlow Bath. The daily activities included search and rescue missions, radio work, first aid and other bush skills. Although there was a little rain on the 66

67 second day we were spared the strong winds that have often given us anxious moments at night. One mother reported that her son was not able to attend School on the day after the bivouac because he had a fever, terrible cough, possibly flu and asthma but added that he had.said that it was the best camp that he had ever attended. GST Once again we were able to spend five days at RAAF Base Richmond during the School's annual camp week. 'T'he cadets made good use of the Hercules flight simulator as well as a flight in the real thing! A number of the cadets played the parr of 'downed aircrew' in a life raft drill in the Base swimming pool, as part of an Air-Sea Rescue mission. Squadron Activities Eleven cadets marched on Anzac Day helping to carry flags at the head of the parade through Sydney. Cadets also represented the Flight by attending the Annual AIRTC Memorial Church Service at Ashfield on Sunday 1 August. Members of the flight also helped with Air Force Week celebrations at Darling Harbour. Flying Flying traming is available to cadets either in powered aircraf( or gliders.

68 CADETS Shore Cadet Unit The Unit is now made up of 155 recruits from Form III, 53 boys from Form IV who are predominantly Junior NCOs and 55 boys in Form V who make up the senior ranks (with a Form VI boy in the most senior position). Training on Monday afternoons has involved roping, first aid and navigation and communication courses. All the instruction is carried out by the senior boys for whom the challenges lie in their roles as instructors and leaders of their peers. In Term I there is an intensive leadership course for the boys of Forms IV and V who have chosen Cadets as their service activity and are seeking promocion. At this time they cover teaching techniques and assessment of lessons. Home training supports the bush skills that are learnt during the Promotions Camps. A total of 126 boys attend this camp held at Webbs Creek for four days in the final week of Term III. The End of Year camp is conducted at the Somerset Campsite on the Colo River. This provides all boys attending with an outdoor experience that incorporates a wide range of activities and builds upon their training during the year. In addition to the camps, a focus of the year was the Combined Cadet and AIRTC Open Day. The afternoon provided parents, and everybody else interested, with an opportunity to see the types of activities that the boys engage in during their training as well as giving a brief insight into the lifestyle of camps. The day was a considerable success and enjoyed by parents and boys alike. The Cadet Band has continued in its traditional role and was a huge success in the ANZAC Day Parade where they are one of the three remaining school based bands. They were also an integral part of the Open Day providing quite a spectacle on School Ground. Under the guidance of Mr Pet~r Guest the Band has been involved in a number of external competitions for bands of this sort. Although the Band has not won any of these competitions, they have performed commendably in the company of some very professional bands. Cadets continues to have a focus in training that develops small teams. These teams are the basis of field living in camp and the activities on Mondays at School. Such an experience is invaluable for the boys leading the teams as well as the members of the teams. It is these members who go on to lead the teams in future years and to develop essential man management skills. Leadership training is, therefore, a key aspect of the experience of the boys of the Shore Cadet Unit. 68

69 Cadet Band This was another very succes.sful year for the Cadet Band with their two annual public performances. The band excelled at marching, leadership courses and even rockclimbing as well as music. Early in Term I, Mr Guest organised an excursion for all members of the band to visit the Sydney Army Band at Victoria Barracks Paddington. The Army band performed a traditional 'Changing of the Guard' followed by an entertaining marching display. In their band room a quick rehearsal was witnessed followed by individ_ual tuition which was widely appreciated. The 38 members of the Cadet Band performed extremely well at the ANZAC Day March in the city. This year they were again required to perform two circuits and led two regiments with a large number of Shore Old Boys in their rank and file. The band was adjudicated runners-up in the Cadet Drum and Bugle section - quite an achievement considering the limited amount of 'rehearsal for a completely new routine. The Shore Cadet Band has a tradition of being the loudest band of the day. This year was no exception and the band's drumming and trumpeting echoed off the call buildings as they marched up George Street. The following weekend, 12 of the senior drummers performed an tmpromptu routine in a m1m band contest at lviaroubra RSL club. and coming leaders. Performing at competition level is valuable experience for the band and younger members present then will be ready for this event next year. The next event held in early September on the school ground was Cadet Open Day. The band again performed some difficult marching routines with great enthusiasm. T'he innovation by Nick Marquez of a file by file drum sequence added an extra dimension to the performance. Another first for the band this year was the introduction of playing the 'Colour Parry' onto the parade and a musical rendition acknowledging the 'General Salute'. Many of the senior and junior members then participated in the leadership courses at \\lebbs Creek where band members petformed well Five cadets achieved distinction in the senior course and two in the junior course. This all bodes well for leadership next year. Special thanks to the band for being so co-operative and encouraging this year. They gave their support to Drum Major CUO Andrew Walker and Senior Drummer CUO Nick Marquez. Also WOII Rose and S/Sgt Tyrrell along with the rest of the Fifth Form Sergeants are thanked for all the work they did in helping the band have such a successful year. Many thanks to Mr Guest for bringing so many new romines and tunes to the band. It is certain that the band's high standard will be upheld by the up 69

70 DRAMA THE WIZARD OF OZ When The Wizard of Oz is memioned to anyone over 30 years of age, the word association is immediately and undeniably -Judy Garland. Judy Garland played the role of 'Dorothy' in the 1939 film of the same name. In fact the film came well before the stage version. It was with the singing of the best song from the film - 'Over the Rainbow' that Judy Garland made her name, and then starred in other musical films such as Meet Me in St Louis and Easter Parade, and so became a cinema immortal. Many younger film buffs will be familiar with the re-release on video of The Wizard of Oz, and the fine performances of Jack Haley (the Tinman) and Ray Bolger (Scarecrow). With this in mind it seemed a brave decision by the Shore Music Department and the Shore Drama Society to recreate the magic of this wonderful show in the Smith Auditorium. The question in the mind of this reviewer on travelling to Nonh Sydney was how the set designer would handle 1 the yellow brick road'. On entering the Auditorium the audience was confromed with an imposing structure that stretched from the rear of the stage over the orchestra pit and into the audience. Adam Lindbergh, the designer, had made a bold statement; one that challenged the cast to use it with strength and energy. The alternative would be that the actors would be swamped by the ser. The cast, by and large, handled the challenge well. Especially memorable were the Cyclone, the Munchkinland and the Haunted Forest sequences. The set was less well used in Kansas, because the yellow brick road imposed its presence even before it was revealed as a road. When the cravellers (Dorothy, Woodsman, Scarecrow and Lion) were alone on the road, it tended to segregate them as a team on a quest, and they had difficulty relating and responding to each mher. Dorothy, played by Tamara Hunter, gave an energetic, sprightly performance, bm without possessing the voice to really sell 'Over the Rainbow'. But her movemem and dancing were a delight and she was convincing as the always positive Dorothy. In many ways the most successful sequences were 'If I only had a Brain' - Scarecrow, 'If I only had a Heart'- Tinman, and 'If I only had a Nerve' - Lion. Tom Bunting (Scarecrow), Jean-Paul Lumsdaine (Tinman) and Scott Mathers (Lion) sang, danced and acted themselves into the hearts of the audience through these songs. Each characterisation was energetic and sustained throughout. Jean-Paul Lumsdaine, for me, gave one of the most satisfying performances of the evening. 70

71 The other character who made her presence felt all the rime she was on stage was Josie Taylor as the Wicked Witch of the West. Josie played this most rewarding part with all the pizzazz and enrhusiasm she could muster. The scage lit up every rime she appeared. She has been a great trouper for Shore drama and in her final role. she showed how it should be done! The fine voices oftrinicy White (rbe Good Wiech of the North) and ick Bentivoglio (Emerald City Guard) were only fleetingly realised, as their parts were not such as co show off the tremendous quality of their voices. Nevertheless they did well wirh what they were given. Nick gave an especially interesting acting performance in the llenry Gale/Guard doubling. Luke Storrier as Toto, Dorothy\ dog in Oz, contributed co the fun wirh an endearing pomayal. i\latr Hunter (Professor Marvel/Wizard of Oz) was a little uncomfortable ar times wirh rhe roles, perhaps because he could not fu lly convince himself how old he needed to be as each character. The Preparatory School boys can mostly be guaranteed to steal the show (the dictum never act with children or animals' was never so true). They played the citizens of i\junchkinland and added a great deal of colour. moving and singing well. Alistair Srewarr, as the i\ layor, especially srood our with a confident performance. The chorus, under rhc strong direction of choreographer Sandy Sellers, were only called on to show their wares on limited occasions. The jitterbug, with the name role danced by Derek Hall, was totally engaging, foot capping, energetic and exuberant. Sandy is to be commended also for che way she trained the principals, who moved so well in all their songs. The orchestra, under the Iusical Director Robert Fox, produced a sound that was always in tune and fully suppon:ed the singers. Rarely have we heard such a good orchestra in the Shore pir. tjeg Lomm and her ream provided colourful costumes. They were nor always what we might have expected but they were always interesting and fitted the production. The backstage and lighting crew worked seamlessly - the besr tribute that can be made was that the audience remaincd unaware of the work being done by these important cogs in the production. All in all. a great rribure ro the Director. C hris Reynolds, to present a production that every member of the audience will remember with affection for a Long rime. The IViz.ord of Oz was a tribute ro the teamwork of a large number of boys, girls and staff. THAT EYE THE SKY!

77 suburban villain, the violent and abusive mechanic, Bill Cherry, with ease while Sandra Millen exhibited all the signs of the trapped and frustrated but loyal wife. However, perhaps the most engaging member of this family was 'Far', Orr's loyal but innocent companion, who was performed with relish by Nick Lark worthy. It was the arrival of Henry Warburton (teasingly labelled 'a preacher' in the program) which took the play on to a new level. This confusing character oscillated between madman, prophet, sadist and victim, being both an exmic yet strangely familiar persona - all a bit much. Nonetheless, Charlie Ross should be congratulated for coming to grips with this character as he managed to both shock, challenge and yet reassure the audience. Lastly, perhaps the most memorable performance came from the 'chook' (or was it a rooster?) played by the dexterous Adam Browne. Perhaps his death after the first act (which nearly caused me to walk out) was all for the best as our focus could then shift to the main text of the play. So I left the Drama Studio glad that Shore had attacked a difficult and challenging play and assured of Seldon's pleasures. It was enjoyable to see such high levels of production and performance from a school which has once again demonsuated the depth of talent in irs ranks. So, despite being somewhat confused and unsatisfied (as is the wont of critics) by both the secular and religious spheres of the play I knew that life had become just that little bit more interesting and I felt certain that I would remember That Eye The Sky long after the strains of musical themes have blended into one. PROPERTY OF THE CLAN The murder of a young girl in the Hunter region some years ago had a tremendous psychological effect on those nearby. From this grim background came the story behind Property of the Clan. Set in the mythical industrial slums of Black Rock Point behind Newcasi:Ie, where surf culture and heavy industry intersect, the play deals with issues of rape and murder, as well as the motivations and assumptions of people within our communities. As such, it was a highly appropriate performance for the second Form V Personal Development day, hosted at Shore on Wednesday 3rd November, examming male/female relations. The day was formed by a combinadon of the boys from Form V, and. girls from Roseville College and Wenona, and the play was performed by a coalition of Form V Drama from Shore and Roseville. When Tracy Warner, Black Rock schoolgirl, is raped and murdered, the locals are shocked, but Tracis reputation as a sleep-around precedes her. The issues of such violence in adolescence are examined through the eyes of Jadea close friend of Tracy 1 S, her brother Jared, parents and teachers. Immediately after the crime occurs, linle is known of the incidents that led to Tracis death. As the play continues however, the truth is gradually revealed: eventually, we discover that Jared saw Tracy being raped, and knows the identities of the perpetrators. The truth creates further problems for Jared. He is forced to choose between telling the truth and letting out the feelings gripping his mind, or remaining loyal to his friends and retreating further inside himself. 77

78 Charles Ross successfully merged the elements of Jared's surfie lifestyle and tortured psyche, giving a highly convincing performance. Jared's decision is greatly influenced by those around him, forming the rest of the cast for the play. His mother, played by Kim Catchlove, auempts to halt his retreat into isolation, with little success. Jade, his sister, played by Alison Buckle, seems to follow Jared's descent, as she talks to Tracy's grave and is increasingly cast-out of her familiar circles due to her obsession with Tracy's death. jared's girlfriend Rachel (Lucy Grey) IS determined to discover the truth, as she finds an ally in school misfit Glen, convincingly played by Simon Gardner. Finally, james Scruby played Ricko, friend and idol to Jared. Ricko is a complex character, his bravado a distinct clash with his uuer cowardice, his dark secrets kept well hidden. His bizarre views form the basis of much of the play's anti-ideology. Ricko is willing to believe his eyes and nothing else; after all people have to act the way they are. Scruby was generally excellent, his occasional bouts of yelling or low energy largely overcome by his stage presence and believable demeanour. A very short rehearsal period meant some cutting of corners, but without any diminishing effect. Over the two performances, a few scenes were lacklustre or low in energy, however the audience on both occas1ons was ent~usiastic, allowing for a rise in energy. Simplicity became the key for the production crew, however creative thinking from the set designers resulted in a concise, practical set. It had been decided by the directors, Chris Reynolds and Graham Lewarne, to have a neutral backdrop rather than a bleak image. The final set was a balanced hanging of three backdrops, giving soft ideas of sand and sea. The lack of time also weighed heavily on the minds of the sound and lighting crew, doubly so given their lack of experience and expertise, but a successful, if simple, result was achieved in both sections. The performance was technically seamless, comparing very favourably with Shore's larger productions which frequently suffer extended or repeated technical glitches. This process of creating sets, lighting and sound was invaluable to the Drama students. They demonstrated the effects which can be achieved from even simple equipment, and will be helpful in the staging of the group projects to be completed next year. Also, one of the major texts studied in the HSC Drama course for Shore 1 s first-ever HSC Drama class, this live performance of the Property of the Clan will undoubredly give these fifth formers a tremendous advantage in their appreciation of the play. The text itself is fairly simple, but the issues are complex and are handled as such. This commendable performance has no doubt helped resolve some of these complexities in the minds of the students, as well as providing an excellent springboard for discussion regarding the Day's central theme; that of relations between men and women. 78

79 MUSIC Music Captain's Report A new sense of energy and vitality has been seen in the Music School in A marked level of involvement by a growmg number of boys has been matched by their commitment to the musical life of the School. Such enthusiasm and dedication has been reflected in the excellence which has been the hallmark of many outstanding performances. More importantly it has been the continuing development of the ideals of teamwork and School spirit, through the various musical ensembles within the Music School, that have made this year memorable. The Music School was already in full-gear, when we returned to School at the start of the year. Rehearsals for the 1999 musical, The Wizard of Ozl had already begun, and were shaping up for another successful show for the Music School and Drama Society. Over I 00 students from a number of girls' schools and Shore contributed w the most adventurous musical production to date, performed to six sell-out audiences. The motley cast was led on stage by those four intrepid adventurers, Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tinman and the Lion, played respectively by Tammy Hunter (Wenona), Tom Bunting, JP Lumsdaine and Scott Mathers. The Pit Orchestra, under the baton of Mr Fox, continued, as they have for a number of years, to provide great supporr for those in the spotlight. The most spectacular aspect of the production was the set, and thanks must go to the technical crew who created an amazing space to raise the show. Many thanks should also go to the staff who helped in the production, especially the director, Mr Chris Reynolds.,. Term I also saw the development of the core music groups starting their busy years at their annual music camps. The camps introduced Form I boys to the Performing Groups, and provided the base for the performances of the groups throughout the year. The highlight of Term II was the celebration of the school's!loth birrhday with a concert at the Town Hall featuring soloists, bands, the orchestra and the combined voices of the Prep and Senior School Choirs and Centenary Choir. The highlight of the evening was over 2000 people singing the school song, Vitai Lampada Tradunt, under the baton of a very nervous Captain of Music. Three of the many music groups have had very special experiences this year. The Stage Band, who continued to perform at many occasions throughout the year, competed in the McDonald's Sydney Performing Arrs Challenge. After hours of practice they returned with the First Place Trophy, aptly described by 79

80 the Headmaster as akin to winning the Head of the River. It truly was a momenrous occasion for the group. The Shore Wenona Orchestra was privileged to have an Artist-in-Residence during Term III, Mr. Wilfred Lehmann, a renowned Australian Orchestral Conductor and COncertmaster. He took the orchestra to dizzying heights in their performance at the inaugural Shore Wenona Concert. A notable performance at the concert was made by the Orchestra joining tenor, Nicholas Bentivoglio, and baritone, Scott Mathers, in the duet 'In the depths of the Temple' from The Pear/fishers by Bizet. Both students were awarded Honour Awards at the beginning of Term IV. Then the Chapel Choir achieved international success this year when it toured the North Island of New Zealand.. The first International tour by any music group from the Music School was a resounding success and has laid the path for future tours both of the Choir and other music groups. The Music School has continued its association with the Wenona School. The Shore \Venona Orchestra enables boys and girls to enhance both their musical and social skills. Another link was made between the schools with the formation of the Shore Wenona Vocal Ensemble, whose performances have been received by both schools with great acclaim. This year saw the inaugural Shore \Venona Concen:, which gave performers from both schools valuable stage experience. Individual performance standards have advanced significantly this year. Apart from the numerous opportunities to perform in a Lunch Hour Concert, the focus is on two concerts. The HSC Music Soiree, showcases the performing abilities of the students sitting music exams this year, while the annual Music Awards afford a great opportunity for all those involved in music. From over 200 boys, a group of top performers is selected to perform at the Finalists' Concert. This year's Most Outstanding Performer was Tristan Dallas (Piano) with other notable performances by Richard Scholl (Clarinet), Colin Wong (Piano and Viola), and David Moore (Trumpet). The Concert Bands, Stage Bands, Choirs and Orchestra have all had an extraordinary year. The Semester Concerts have been of a high standard which can be attributed to the efforts of these fine young musicians. Music continues to play an integral part in the life of the School, and ics role is constantly expanding due.to the dedication and efforts of the music staff withour whom the opportuni[ies presented to all the boys of the School would not be possible. A final thanks therefore goes to Mrs Wentzel, Ms Abbott, Mrs Collins, Mrs Orchard, Mr Dorich, Mrs Goldie, Mr Dries and Mr Fox. Orchestra Performance opportunities for orchestral players have been many and varied. With a membership of over SO, we enjoy the versatility of performing works of symphonic strength, or forming groups of finer instrumentation as often called for when the Orchestra plays an accompanying role. One of the most valued funcrions of a school orchestra is to give students studying Concerto marerial, [he experience of working with the complete score. Orchestral members gain as much 80

81 from (his as does the soloist. David Moore (trumpet), Nicholas Bentivoglio (tenor), and Scott Mathers (baritone), were our soloists this year, delighting us and their audiences with professionally presented performances. The 30 piece Theatre Orchestra formed for the musical, the Wizard ofoz, consistendy worked overtime through Term I. The Orchestra's role here is integral and vital to the production, and many styles must be developed from full orchestral to dance band, plus a wide variety of accompanying. 'T'he scores were indeed a challenge, many sections requiring professional technique. With a little help from friends from St Andrews, Wenona and Ascham, loyal old boys Anton Albert and Ian, and a few staff, we made a jolly good sound under the baton of Master of Performing Arts Mr Robert Fox. 'T'he five performances of the Producdon Season were gone all too soon. Orchesua Camp was again held at Gladesville during Term I where we had the privilege of unlimited rehearsal time in a holiday environment. The catering of Mrs Robertson and her band of assisting parents was greatly enjoyed and appreciated by all. The orchestral team comprises relatively small numbers from each of the six school years, and it is always a pleasure to watch their interaction in the camp environment. In addition to the expected Semester Concert Series, this year offered the bonus of a Town Hall Concert to mark the schools 110th birthday. The balance of serious, entertaining and celebratory items, provided something for everyone in a party atmosphere, and the Orchestra certainly rose to the occasion, playing Rossini, Hummel, Hallelujah, Great Jehovah and Vitai Lampada Tradunt with zest and determination. During Term III, a combined Shore/Wenona Orchestra benefited from the wealth of experience of eminent Australian Conductor Mr Wilfred Lehmann, who worked as Artist in Residence. The augmented orchestra enabled us to move fur(her into the Symphonic Repertoire, and we were able to perform most of what had been studied (Schubert, Bizet, Hummel and Tchaikovsky) at the Shore/Wenona Concert in September. International Cellist David Pereira, under the auspices of the Ausualian National Academy of Music, conducted a Master Class at our school in June. Four of our orchestra members (Kiyo Otsuka, Leonard Drynan, Scott Bagnall and Hugh Smith took advantage of this unique opportunity to further their horizons). Nine Form VI boys now move on (Kiyo Otsuka, Leonard Drynan, Peter Billiet, Scott Mathers, Hugh Smith, Nicholas Bentivoglio, Nikos Andronicos, Robert Sturrock, James Bertouch). We wish them well, and thank each one sincerely for his input of mateship and hard-earned skills. External Music Examinations The Australian Music Examinations Board requires candidates to submit a comprehensive program consisting of a recital of three or four compositions of differing period and style, technical work (scales, chords and a range of exercises), 81

82 sight-reading, listening tests, viva voce and a list of extra pieces studied throughout the year. The Music Department encourages students to use such examinations as a measure of progress from year to year. Forty four boys entered through the School, our Music Building being used as the Examination Centre. An additional number of boys entered for examinations through their own private teachers. The most notable result was Honours in Grade 7 Pianofone awarded to Form V boy Lukas Opacic. Thirty two Form VI boys sat for examination in Grade 1 Theory of Music, the highest mark was 98 being earned by Erwin Yau. Many of these boys have since used their newly acquired skills to create some impressive melodic writing. Choir The choral program continues to go from strength to strength at the School. There were three choirs this year, the Chapel Choir, Chamber Choir and Shore Wenona Vocal Ensemble, and each group embraced very demanding roles. All responded to the challenges before them with commitment and excellence; a sure sign of the dedication and talent of the 70 boys involved in the choral activities. The Chapel Choir and Chamber Choir represented their School and country in the first international tour of a music group from Shore; the highlight of the year. The Chapel Choir continues to serve the School's Chapel through the many Open Services, Family Services and Choral Weddings throughout the year. Sacred music, such as Mozart's Laudate Dominum with treble soloist Christopher Nobbs, performed at the Lower School Family Service, commands most of their repertoire. Although the choristers enjoy this music, they are diversifying into more secular work and thoroughly enjoying the change. In particular, the group's performance of the much loved 'Streets of London' with baritone soloist Scott Mathers, was wei] received. The choir hopes to continue this trend and, to broaden their repertoire even funher, has started learning the techniques of Gospel smgmg. The Chamber Choir is composed of dedicated members of the Chapel Choir and the boys in this group rehearse a total of three to four times a week for both choirs. The Chamber Choir competed this year at the Sydney McDonald's Performing Challenge, and through their hard work and commitment reached a new high standard of performance. The Shore Wenona Choir started at the beginning of Term II as a joint initiative of Mr Dries and Mrs Maynard from Wenona. The group, consisting of top vocalists from both schools who are not necessarily choir members, has performed a mix of modern, secular and sacred pieces at concerts at borh schools, and become a feature of these events. Their success can be attributed to the talent of the boys and girls, and to the great enthusiasm of the staff. The Chapel and Chamber Choir went on their first international tour this year, travelling around the North Island of New Zealand. They gave performances to great acclaim and received much support from the many schools they visited. The culmination of 82

83 the tour was towards the end at the concert held in St James Church, Wellington, where the choi~ performed with skill and gusto. The organisation and effort of Mr Dries and Mr Fox ensured that the group could go on such a tour, and for this we are truly grateful. The major Choral work this year was Schubert's MassinG, which featured the choir and soloists; soprano, Mrs Ledgerwood, tenor, Andrew Smith (who won the Vocal Section of the 1999 Music Awards) and bass, Scott Mathers. The group was supported in this momentous task by the energy of Mrs Orchard playing the organ, and a string quartet which made the performance even more spectacular. The Senior School Carol Service, again the most popular event on the choral calendar, was again a resounding success. The Head Choristers, all ten of whom are especially necessary considering the ever growing size of the Chapel choir, are to be congratulated on their fine efforts. Special thanks must go to Andrew Mathers, who re-joined the choir this year after a three-year break, and to Senior Chorister Scott Mathers, who leaves the choir after six years of service to the group. Both of them are in VI th Form, and we wish them all the best for the future. Finally, many thanks to Mrs Orchard and Mr Fox who have provided invaluable support this year for the choir, and to Choirmaster,.tvlr Dries, whose efforts in raising both the awareness of choral activities in the School, and standard of all the choirs, is an inspiration to all. II Oth Anniversary Concert It would be.fair to say that 90% of the boys attending the concert at Sydney Town Hall on 5th May 1999 commemorating the founding of the School, went out of a sense of duty. The night was something to be endured and the hope (but not the expectation) was that it wouldn't go on for too long. But the buzz around the Town Hall at the end of the concert, and the applause that followed the last item, the School Song, sung by all those present, told a completely different story. Here was a School that could not only win the grand slam at the GPS Regatta, but could present a concert of which any school in Australia could be rightly proud. The standard of performance was extremely and consistently high, sometimes outstanding. The items were varied, reflecting the catholic range in music at present. The concert opened with the combined choir of parents, Old Boys, friends of Shore, and current members of the School choirs. They sang with brass and organ accompaniment Charles. Hubert Parry's 'J was Glad'. Daniel Dries, the conductor, was able to extract, with a limited rehearsal period, a full, round and exciting sound from the choir, in this and in their later contribution 'I Wanna Be Ready', a traditional Negro spiritual. This featured a parent, Louise Ledgerwood, as an outstanding soloist. The first half finished with the 'Hallelujah Chorus' from GF Handel's Messiah, sung by some members of the choir, at the 75th Anniversary and the Centenary Concert. The choir produced m both these items a rousing performance which filled the Town Hall. 83

84 Here was music in which there was evident pleasure in borh performing and listening. The standard of orchestral playing within the School can vary greatly from year to year. With the strong commitment of time for other activities especially games, boys, especially string players, rarely find the time to practise and so reach the standard necessary ro form an ensemble that can produce a pleasing enough sound. The orchestra over the past two years has been quite outstanding, the best for quite a time at Shore. Their intonation has been secure and the overall effect has been of the strings playing as one. Much of the credit must be given ro Dorrilyn Collins who trains the orchestra. The brass section has also been very good indeed. The orchestra's contribution to the 11 Oth Anniversary Concert was the Third Movement of Hummel's Trumpet Concerto and the William Tell Overture by Rossini. This was a pleasure to listen to and a first-rate performance from soloist David Moore with his brilliant rone and musical interpretation. David also featured strongly in the Stage Band offering 'IVlinnie the Moocher', this time as vocalist. The Stage Band also played 'The Golden Wedding' with Tom Sapsford as clarinet soloisr. Under Peter Dorich's direction the Stage Band has become a band well worth coming a long way to hear. They were later in the year to win the McDonald's Challenge Trophy for the best Sydney school stage band, amidst considerable competition from other Independent and State schools. A fabulous performance. There were two individual soloists of considerable skill, whose performances received the applause they deserved. Tristan Dallas, a superb pianist, played ] S Bach's 'Prelude and Fugue in C sharp major' and Nick Bentivoglio sang the ever popular 'La Donna e Mobile' by Verdi. Shore is proud to possess such musical performers, outstanding talents who may well make their mark in Australia's musical world in the future. The Concert Band is a welcome addition to any school concert. 'T'heir performances of Von SuppC's 'Light Cavalry Overture' and an arrangement of 'James Bond Returns' were well executed and set the feet tapping. Again inronation was assured, and there was a lack of wrong notes; two things that so often bedevil young players. It was certainly the besr playing heard from the Concert Band - no doubt inspired by the standard of playing before them. Conductor, Robert Fox, was able to extract the best from his players. An unexpected pleasure was an impromptu organ lesson given to a Prep boy, Edward Copeman - much to the bemusement of Edward and the delight of the audience. Master of Performing Ans, Robert Fox, demonstrated, with some help from Edward, the extraordinary power of the Town Hall Organ, which shares with the School its lloth Anniversary. The Preparatory School Movement Group, directed and choreographed by Sandy Sellers, can always be guaranteed to tug at the heartstrings of an audience. Their 'Birthday Bonanza' was no exception. Their movement was inventive, confident and apposite. The Chapel Choir again displayed great craft in their contribution, an American folk hymn 'What Wondrous Love is This' and Noel Rawsthorne's 'Christ is Our Cornerstone'. In his short 84

85 ctme at Shore, Daniel Dries has transformed the Chapel Choir inro a superb vocal ensemble. They were later co rake New Zealand by storm in the mid-year vacation. Two bands called 'Jo' provided lighter enrenainmenr as did three old ladies (Sam Shepherd, Tom Mackellar and Luke Storrier) who seemed to wander in between items, ro emenain and shower the audience with Minties. The Cabircus performers juggled and unicycled thetr way around the Town Hall, to make the not inconsiderable changes on stage appear quite seamless. They were well trained by Chris Reynolds and Dugal Parker. The Senior Prefect, Ben Jrving, gave assurance and aplomb co the task of compere. This was an exciting evening of music and encertainmenr. worthy of a great school cclebraring irs 11 Oth Anniversary with a Town Hall party. The Director of Performing Arts, Roberr Fox, deserves hearty congratulations for so splendidly co-ordinating such a memorable evening. SLx years, this year introduced the boys to four artists; the sculprors Scott Larimer and joseph Paulini, che renowned porter Pecer Rushforrh and rhe painrer Judith White.The experiences gained in the sculpture workshops have seen Form rv students embarking on a major sandstone carving project ro be incorporated in the architecture of che new library building. The sculpmre will comprise ten sandstone panels on rhe theme of the Olympics. Full use has been made of che exhibition area tn the visual arcs foyer, wirh shows of work by al l forms throughout the year, culminating in the large exhibition of major works in September. There was a record number of works on display and the exhibition was officially opened at a very successful evening function for reachers and parencs of the Form VJ students. An exhibition of works on the theme 'Personal Best-Artists and Athletes ln Action' attracted some excellent entries. A selection of rhe best works will be framed and tlisplayed wichin the School. VISUAL ARTS 1999 has been another stimulating ~ear in the Visual Arts Department. The Form VI major works explored a wide range of media, making full use of our splendid facilities in painting, photography, ceramics, sculpture and printmaking. There was an increase in painting submissions but ocher media were well represented.

86 SUMMER GAMES ATHLETICS The 1999 Athlet.ics season was definitely a turning point for Athletics at Shore School. With the largest team of any GPS school, and the introduction of a strict traintng routine, the Shore AthJetics Team experi enced many successes throughout the year. The season began in Term TV of 1998 when Shore introduced the first ever 'Summer Athletics' rra1ntng program. Around 20 boys trained each Monday and Wednesday morning, gaining speed and knowledge from experienced coaches. Tbe annual Shore Athletics Carnival at orthbridge signalled the start of the competition season. Overall it was a ve.ry exciting day and it became evident who the top athletes were. More importantly, the age champions for the day were: Ul3 Ul'l U15 U16 Ul7 Open Edward Jenkins Lomond Davis Ralph Gomnan 8iotTourle Robbie Tall Kirk Bayvel The commitment and rraining continued in the Easter holidays when around 150 boys attended the Athletics c;unv. Tht:: now familiar face of sprtnt guru and Coach. Gary Foley, was present, as was <1 combination of ocher coaches. Gary's impressive training routine consiste d of variety of track work, swimming and boxing. Overall rhe camp was extremely successful and provided a good lead up for he up and coming invitation carnivals. Four invitation carniva ls were he ld in preparation for the GPS Carnival, all of which were vital for boys hoping to be selected for the team for the GPS. Two of these carni va ls were held out at Homebush, while the other rwo were held at ES Marks and Narrabeen. The four invitation carnivals not only provided a good lead up for the GPS, but also produced some oursranding and consistent performances from some of the Shore competitors. The mosr impressive were from Edward Jenkins, who won every 800m event he entered in the U13s. Sam Kiely did jusr as well in the U14s winning every ZOOm race and all but one in the loom. Robbie Tall was the star competitor in the Senior Team, taking om the long jump in each carnival, along with the loom and 200m twice. OtJ1er strong individual performances came from Lomond Davis in che U l4 400m, Will Allen in the U13s and Marty Aellig in the Open sprint events. The fi nal carnival of the year was the big one, the GPS, held in front of 10,000 spectators who had braved the wet and 86

88 windy conditions. Although injuries plagued the team on the day, the depth of the team was evident, as the carnival was still incredibly successful. The team got off to our usual flying start with the early field events proving to be very successful. Scott Brezny secured first place in the U13 shot put, while Matt Bell grabbed third in the same event. Robbie Tall continued his amazing feats in the U17 long jump, winning the event with a School record jump of 6. 77m. Rob Lark picked up 2nd in the U14 shot put, as did Henry Geddes in the U16 event. On the track there were also some very fine performances, with the juniors once again being the strong point of the team. Edward Jenkins remained undefeated in the Ul3 BOOm, winning the event in a GPS record time of 2ml2.Ss. He then backed this up with anq[her win in the 400m event. Sam Kiely also broke GPS records when he won both the Ul4 loom and 200m. Lomond Davis continued the success in this age group winning the 400m, and then contributed in the winning relay team. Anthony Spooner picked up first place in the UlS loom as did the age groups relay team. Other first places came from Alistair Hattersley in a determined win in the U16 800m and Robbie Tall in the Ul7 loom. At the end of the day, Shore fared reasonably well in the overall standings. The Junior team finished in third place, only 40 points behind the winners, while the Senior team claimed a respectable fifth. BASKETBALL In the basketball season there were some encouraging results and improvements shown throughout the teams. In the junior teams many strong players emerged, most prominent of whom were Ricky Broadfoot, Matt Bell, Tom Hall, Peter Giorgi utti and Lorn on Davis. They are just some of the many encouraging youngsters who will be pressing for open's positions next season. The Sixths were undefeated and the Seconds side had a great season coming runners up to ScQ[s. After last year's excitement of having Los Angeles Lakers NBA stat, Kobe Bryant, and Australian legend, Andrew Gaze in the Shore Gym, this year more NBA coaches provided a similar clinic. This was a once in a lifetime experience for the boys involved. The Firsts had an excellent season with some major highlights. The Adelaide tour at the end of Term III 1998 equalled the Shore record with three out of four wms including the most significant game against St Peters. Unfortunately, when they toured to Sydney they beat us, taking a nine games to eight lead in the overall games played in the biennial competition. The team's effort in the Raschke Cup was also an outstanding highlight of the season. For the first time in several years Shore made the final, by winning all three of its preliminary games, only to lose to Scots. The team finished third in the GPS competition and had great games against the two teams that finished higher on the table. This makes it six years in a row the Firsts have finished in the top four in the GPS competition. Like the previous season, three GPS representatives came 88

He totally dominated the boards successful days of basketball for Shore both offensively and defensively. He had playing at home against Joeys. It was the a soft and accurate shot and was one of first round of GPS competition and both 89

90 the Firsts and Seconds were well prepared for their matches. A huge crowd was inevitable but the usually spirited Joeys fans were kept quiet throughout most of both games. The roar was amazing as the Firsts made their way up the stairs into the gym. Emotions ran wild; goosebumps crawled over the skin as all those who were privileged to witness it felt the stirring support. The Firsts had their best start since the beginning of th~ pre-season roaring to an early lead 28-6 in the beginning of the first half. Defence was played with great intensity by the team who were also shaming with amazing accuracy, spurred on by the hundreds of supporters crammed into the gym. At half time the score stood at with the Firsts on top, appearing to be playing almost effortlessly. The second half was by no means a curtain call to what appeared to be an easy walkover victory. The St Josephs team gave Shore a scare with three minutes remaining, cutting the lead to less than 10. The Firsts remained in control however and went on to record a heartfelt victory of Marcus Flanagan led offensively with 19 points, and David Hood with Ed Sanderson who each contributed 12 points. Shore v. Kings Saturday 13 February For the second round of competition the Firsts journeyed w Kings to play a team who were considered relatively easy opponents. No matter how hard the team tried to escape complacency it seemed w find them anyway. The opening half was not pretty as Shore struggled to keep scores level. As the half time buzzer sounded, and a last second Kings basket had dropped, the scoreboard showed in favour of Kings. Going into the break the team sounded a call to arms and desperately tried to shift into gear. As the second half began the situation went from bad to worse as Kings ex[ended their lead to seven points. However, the team remained defiant and a defensive surge helped the Firsts eclipse their opponent's score during a brief eightminute spurt that gave them a 20-point lead. The game ended with some controversy as players were fouled out and ~ven a coach sent out of the stadium (no, not Mr Humphrey). Lewis Roberts Thomson scored 16 points, Marcus Flanagan scored IS and David Hood 14. Rob Flaye also emerged from the game showing his talent by playing an amazing defensive game. Final score saw Shore victorious at Shore v. Scots Saturday 20 February The third Saturday of the season saw an astounding game of basketball between two heated rivals. The Shore Gym played host to a talent-laden Scots side filled with GPS representatives. The Shore Firsts remained undaunted however and as they emerged from their warm-up area it showed. The crowd was hysterical and the excitement touched all who were I ucky enough to be there; players and spectators alike. The game started competitively with neither team giving an inch. Some great outside shooting from Marcus Flanagan kept Shore in touch with Scots who continually appeared to be on the verge of a run. The run did come however as Scors began to take control late in the half. However in the final few minutes 90

91 some spirited defence from the Shore bench by Hayden Locke and Jeremy Hartcher, kept the score. from blowing out. At the end of a bitterly contested first half, che score showed Scots up by 10 points. The opening of the second half was arguably the best basketball the team played all season. A remarkable fight back was at hand as the game was tied Although Scots kept control for most of the game, the Shore team were always at their heels and with four minutes co go found themselves down by only three points. As is the case in many basketball games, matches are decided in a crucial minute or two of play, and this game was such a one. With a sudden burst a Scots guard puc the game out of Shore's reach with three three-point shots in under two minutes of play. The game ended with Scots the winners at The final score by no means reflected the standard of the game as the Scots' captain remarked 'We didn't expect them co be chat cough'. Good individual performances saw Marcus Flanagan scoring a game high of 19 points, David Hood playing courageously while fighting illness yet still scoring 11 points, as did Lewis Roberts-Thomson who played very well. Shore v. Riverview Saturday 27 February Shore went to Riverview for round four of the competition and expected a close encounter. Both teams were coming off losses but it was Shore who stamped its mark on the game early, scoring seven unanswered points. Riverview came back strongly but could not restrict Shore, who went into the break leading by nine points. ' Wary of complacency the Firsts started the second half trying to build on their first half performance but Shore's lead was stripped away early when Riverview's captain found his range. The last eight minutes of the game saw only ten points scored as the struggle was tied at 40 for what seemed like an eternity. Riverview grabbed the lead late in the game and although Shore had some difficult chances to tie the game, Riverview kept their meagre lead for a two point victory, Ben Irving played exceedingly well scoring 12 points with Marcus Flanagan scoring 10. Shore v. Newington Saturday 6 March After a disheartening loss co Riverview the week before, Shore approached the Newington game with nothing to lose. Newington was undefeated and an equal favourite co take out the GPS premiership. The team however, remained undaunted and came out playing as if every possession was their last. As the half wore on Newington began to assert their dominance, taking an 11-point lead. Then a defensive surge by Shore kept Newington scoreless for the final four minutes of the period and we ended the half only five points behind. For most of the second half the team played catch-up basketball. As Newingcon extended their lead co 10, early in che second half, they again looked to blow out the score. However Shore stood firm and kept Newington at bay matching everything they could throw at us. The game ended with Newington winning by only II points, 91

92 David Hood played very well scoring 14 points with Ed Sanderson lighting up from outside scoring II and Sam Berry had a great game leading the bench to. their highest score for the season with 10. Shore v. Sydney Grammar Saturday 13 March For what would be the last home game of the season Shore was host to Sydney Grammar. Although Grammar has not performed too well this season there was no way Shore was going to play this game half-heartedly. The game started quite evenly as Grammar played above themselves through aggression both offensively and defensively. Even though the Firsts' offence was being executed well, the relatively wavering Grammar defence still did not allow the score to blow out. The first half ended with the Shore up by a mere nine points. As the second half began the shackles were broken and the team stepped up their defence while cominuing their hot shooting, led mainly by Marcus Flanagan who found great touch from outside. A half-court trap, in the final eight minutes of the game, blew the score out for the Firsts to win by almost 40 points. The game was not won in a pretty manner but a 40-point win is a 40-point win in anyone's language. Marcus flanagan scored a game high 29 points and David Hood scored 23 points including a huge two-handed dunk on the fast break. Final score, Shore 88 Grammar 49. For four members of the Firsts it was time to say goodbye to the Shore gym as the Form VI members of the team were playing their last GPS game at the hallowed venue. The aim of the team was to deliver a fitting farewell for those ambassadors of the School who have put so much into Shore basketball during their school careers. Shore v. Sydney High Saturday 20 March The firsts finished the season with a close win over Sydney High and finished with a winning season and a third place. The game started precariously as High took a small lead for the first part of the game. The scores were close for almost the entire half until Shore put into effect a defensive trap. This was executed magnificently by great defensive pressure and some hot shooting by Ben Irving, who scored 14 first-half points. At half time Shore lead by 10 points The second half showed some high percentage shooting from Shore however High were never down by more than 12 points and loomed dangerously with only five minutes left on the clock. Annoyingly persistent penetration inside from High allowed them to get back inw the game. With less than two minutes remaining in the season, Shore were up by only three points but were able to overrun High in the closing stages with a flurry of free throws to win by seven points. The game saw the end to four Shore basketball careers with all scoring big points. Ben Irving scored 21 poims, Hayden Locke scored a season high 23 points, David Hood (about 25 blocks) and Sam Berry contributed 20 each, as did Marcus Flanagan. The team finished the season well, third behind Newingwn and Scots. A special mention of congratulation goes to Ben Irving, David Hood and 92

The Seconds had a slow start in Term IV, struggling through seven losses and three wins. In the Raschke competition there was a one-point win over High, a loss to Grammar, and a one-point loss to Joeys. However, things improved as team selections were sorted out and skills were learned. The holiday camp set the ream on a more positive track for the GPS season and the competition win against Joeys was one of the best performances by a Shore Seconds side in recent years due, in no small measure, w the home-crowd suppon. Guy Burrows returned to the Seconds for the second year. As a Form III point guard he possesses extraordinary vision, ball handling skills, and on-court leadership. He always took control in right situations and won us the game against Riverview in the last seconds. Spencer Ivey was a consistent performer and highly reliable. He was initially vice-captain and then rook over the captaincy midway through the season. He emerged as the top scorer and really stood out after being appointed captain. He was also the best trainer in the team. Chris Tyrrell came to basketball for the first time this season. He was athletic, but struggled in Term IV to learn how to read the game. In the competition he top scored in two games and was the most improved player in the team.

98 was relied on extensively, handling pressure well and top scoring in two games. Henry Parry-Okeden forced his way into the starting five during the competition. He dominated under the boards and finished the season as the motivational vice-captain of the team. Nick Church was also back for his second year in the team. He was immediately appointed captain and his contribution as a leader was crucial to the team's development. Inspirational in defence and highly respected, his loss to injury four weeks into the GPS season was a blow to the team. James Taylor had speed to burn and a determined attitude on the court. He was the back-up point guard and the approach was largely a result of the outstanding leadership of Nick Church, Spencer Ivey, and Henry Parry-Okeden. In their attitude they have set a high standard for future teams to emulate.

Jon Deane had been on trial with the team in Term IV and was brought up from the Thirds to replace Nick Church after his injury. He contributed well, working hard at training to find his role in the team. Finishing as runners-up with Grammar, behind an undefeated Scots side, this team was one of the more successful Shore Seconds teams in recent memory. Willingness co work hard together as a team was a key ingredient in their success. It was a strange mix to have boys from Form III to Form VI in the team, and the determined and united : : : : : I : : Defeated SJC Defeated Kings Defeated Scots Lost to Riverview Defeated Newington Defeated Grammar Defeated High The Thirds basketball success was achieved because of the boys' willingness to play as a team with a real determination to win. Fo11owing the most successful preseason the Thirds have experienced in many years, the lads were very confident at the tip off for the opening match with Joeys. Strong defence, good rransition and accurate shooting permitted the side to build a healthy lead of 7 points at the break. With just five minutes remaining, a commanding IS-point buffer was whittled away to just four at the close as poor handling and lack of concentration

99 permitted ]oeys some easy baskets. A litde soul searching at training brought a determination for a one hundred percent effort against Kings. Superior organisation and skill proved too much for a totally demoralised Kings outfit in a thrashing. Points were again shared among all team members, underlying the unselfishness of all players. Following the Kings outing, confidence was high as the team prepared for what was expected to be the side's toughest assignment against Scots at home. Disciplined half court pressure defence gave the boys plenty of turnovers to develop transition scoring opportunities and a half time lead of Unfortunately, a little lack of concentration lowered the intensity in the second half, which permitted Scots to peg the lead back and our winning margin was just six-points. A resounding trial game victory made the Thirds hot favourites in the next outing at Riverview. An early ninepoint lead provided some justification for this. Unfortunately, excellent pressure defence from Riverview and some poor shooting from the Shore boys gave the home side the ascendancy and a welldeserved win. The disappointment and shock of the Riverview loss squeezed any remaining lethargy from the boys. The season was completed with solid wins against Newington (29-21), Grammar (42-17) and High (39-30). The highlight was an outstanding defensive performance against Grammar where only two opposition baskets were scored in the second half to ensure a sizeable wmmng margm. Winning 12 games from 13 starts is a difficult task in basketball. The statistics provide tangible evidence of the quality of the side. Carl Tindall led the team from the front in every match. His skill and enthusiasm lifted the performance of the other players. Will Rogers' fitness, speed and extraordinary defence, Chris Culvenor's skill and team play, Phil Markham's reliability in all situations, Martin Gribble's aggression and sweet outside shot, Mark Hendrik's strength under the basket, Andrew Maciver's speed and great passing and Mark Hutchinson's rebounding and desire to win combined w make this a successful and memorable team. Fourths NS Baker, AP Champion, JM Croll, WR Hattersley(C), OS King, RS Parris, ]G Tipney, CCK Wong The 1999 season proved to be outstanding, with five wins out of six starts. At the start the team consisted of players with great potential, but they were all playing as individuals. This was apparent right from the first game against Joeys which was the only game the ream lost. We had our chances in that game with much end-to-end play until the last five minutes when a few plays went Joeys' way and they pulled away to win. From that game on, Shore Fourths never looked back. There were easy wins against Riverview, Newington and High with a closer game against Scots and a nail bicer against Grammar, which Shore won in the final play by two points. The game against Kings was a washout. The following statistics provide an overview of the season, Total points for- 99

Will 1-lattersley had an excellent season with the hoop even more impressive when it is realised that almost all these points can1e from fast breaks either from set plays on an inbound ball Another player to have a good season was Adam Champion who has natural basketball skills and an excellent eye for the hoop. In the game against Grammar, Adam shoe three threes in a row w set up Shore's victory and was the second highest scorer for the season. Each player brought special gifts w the ream. For Nick Baker it was a determination to improve, for Jason Croll it was the tenacity w keep struggling to the end, for Dugal King it was an ability to off-load the ball in almost impossible situations. For Richard Parris it was a commitment to rry his best in any playing position in which he found himself. For James Tipney it was a wide court vision co be able to read and make the play, and for Chris Wong, a late addition to the team, it was an ability to make the high post area his own. All in all this was a most successful season. Sincere thanks to the players and to all those who supported the team so ably throughout the basketball term. Fifths M Foulsham, D Cropley, S Bradd, J Montgomerie, B Larsen, S Eislers, N Cooper, C Wong (half the season) 'T'he overall result for the team was very good considering there were many team changes in the beginning of the season. Shore v. joeys w'n Shore v. St lgqatius win Shore v. Scots win Shore v. Newington loss Shore v. Grammar win Shore v. High loss Shore v. Kings washout A central core of players made up of Matthew, David, Stephen and James created the stable element the team required, whilst late additions of Ben, Sean and Nic added valuable support in a strong forward, and two strong guards. Particular mention must be made of Chris Wong who put in a sensational effort in the game against The Scots College. In the last 90 seconds, Chris shot two threepointers in quick succession from the same spot on the court to snatch -the lead and 'vvin by two points. This was an appropriate end to a game in which all the boys worked particularly hard at a time where the make-up of the team was changing the most. Despite the two losses, the success of this team depended on all the players bringing individual skills to the games, but being able to combine these skills in great teamwork. This was particularly evident in the matches against St Ignatius and Sydney Grammar that were close at half time, but then went in Shore's favour after some serious half time motivation. The Fifths this year have had good success and have been a great ream to work with. 100

101 Sixths NM Braun, MD Brown, OM Carter, VCW Fung, CRS Hosking, JJY Hwang, JJ Liddle, HL MacReady, RB McDonald, CTT Palioca (C) did not play in 1999 due to illness This was a truly memorable season for the Sixths basketball team. In Term IV of 1998 seven games were played, five of which were won, with only Grammar and High managing to inflict defeat upon an enthusiastic Shore outfit. In Term I of 1999 the Sixths were undefeated, going from a good side at the end of 1998 to an outstanding side by the end of the season in The team trained hard throughout, being fortunate to have few changes to the line up. This allowed them to become a rightly knit group with a common goal of playing as well as they could and trying to win as many games as possible. The Sixths were fortunate to have the benefit of a good deal of tactical and technical advice from the Fifths' coach, Mr Klupiec, and indeed gained a lot from some very intense practice matches against the Fifths. 'T'he team initially practised at Barry court on Tuesdays and Library court on Wednesdays; however building work necessitated a move to the Rooftop centre ~Ii Crows Nest on \Vednesdays during February and March which provided a different atmosphere and funher opportunities for development. In 1999 the team started with a narrow win against a typically tough St Josephs side. The next game against Kings, which should have provided the team with a relatively easy game, was unfortunately washed ouc. At the excellent new King George V indoor centre in the Rocks the team started to fire, gaining a convincing victory over Scots with Palioca sealing the win with an amazing three point shot on the final bell. The next game against Riverview was probably the Sixths' most brilliant exhibition of basketball throughout the season. Everything seemed to fall into place with a tight man-on-man defence totally frusuaring the opposition and with Carter, Hwang, Hosking and others scoring at will. The game against Newington was played on a small openair court at NewingtOn with very unforgiving hoops. Consequently the game was not technically good but the Shore team was quite dominant, running out easy winners. Up to this point in the term the team had only played teams they had defeated during the last term of However the last games loomed as tough matches against the rwo sides that the Sixths had lost to in the preseason. The first of these games was against Grammar and the team was expecting a hard battle. Shore led by eight poinrs at half-time and then made an all om effort at the beginning of the second half, preventing Grammar from scoring for a long period, while accumulating further points themselves. The team was very Pleased to win by the margin of This left the final game against Sydney High at Moore Park against a previously undefeated High side. The game was incense from the beginning with the lead changing on numerous occasions. Shore missed a few opporcunities and High were in the lead mid-way through the first half. However the boys were not going to let the game go without a fight. Gradually the lead was 101

102 reduced and with a vital goal just before half-time Shore led by Instead of playing a zone defence, as they had done in the previous encounter with High, the Sixths played basically a rnan-on-man defence. With Liddle, Brown and others constantly pressuring the High players and MacReady taking most of the rebounds Shore got on wp in the first 10 minutes of the second half with the captain, Palioca, leading by example with some great pressure shooting. Ev~ntually a jubilant Sixths ran out winners to remain undefeated for Thank you to the many parents who supported the team and congratulations to all the players for a most enjoyable and successful season. Sevenths & Eighths WA Black, AP Browne, NM Bruning, JR Glasson, JF Katz, 0 Lee, HC Lee, AF MacDonald, NSD Mill, JRE Pratten, CJ Scheen, SR Walkom The Sevenths and Eighths basketball had a fine season. Although they managed only a few wins the team was out there, having fun playing social basketball and at all times the game was played in the right spirit. Playing centre were James Katz and Warwick Black, both showing great enthusiasm around the basket and Warwick's occasional three-point bomb always brought some life into the game. At power forward were David Lee and Nick Bruning, both of whom were prepared to put their bodies on the line to win rebounds and score valuable lay-up points. At short forward were Adam Browne, Hong Ching Lee and Christoph Scheen; all gave terrific support to the rest of the team in both attack and defence. Playing at off-guard were Jack Pratten and Jeremy Glasson who both gave good support to the point guards, and at times set the scoreboard alight with some good outside shooting. At point-guard were Andrew MacDonald, Nick Milt and Stephen Walkom who all provided good service to the rest of the team and injected themselves into the game when needed. An enjoyable season was had by all.. 16A SO Abbot (C), MJ Anderson, J Debenham, PJ Derrin, RM Fearnley, SE Goodare, TJ Howell, OJ Moore, HE Playfair, CJ Robinson The team set out in the season to learn to play good man-to-man defence and won three out of seven games. In the first game against Joeys they did not cope well with the opposing 'in-your-face' defence and, despite their dominance in height, did not match the opposition in winning rebounds. The game was lost at the beginning of the second half when silly turnovers led to a number of fast breaks to move the opposition out of reach. This same pattern was repeated against Scots two weeks later. Unforcunately, the team lost one of their most talented players, Rob Fearn ley, to a knee during training and he was out for the season. The Kings game was a Dave Moore and Henry Playfair show with Henry pulling off amazing post moves under the basket and Dave carving up the Kings defence at will. This individual brilliance, combined with good teamwork, made for a massacre. The Scots game showed up 102

103 the 16As' poor zone offence and so they spent some intense training sessions under the instruction of Shane Howsen. The win against Riverview was closer than the score line would indicate; the opponents' shots were just not dropping for them but this might have had something to do with the Shore team 1 S defence. The Newington game was forgettable for a number of reasons including the 16As' lack of toughness in the face of Newington's physical style of play which takes full advantage of the refereeing. The Shore 16A players are to be congratulated on their self-control under these conditions. Newington 1 s toughness under the basket and pinpoint outside shooting made them hard to beat. Against Grammar it was again a close game. This time it was Scott Abbot 1 s turn to shine but the ream could not peg back the early lead. Finally against Sydney High we stormed through the opposition with great teamwork and impenetrable defence to lead by 20 points. This fell back to a 10- point lead at half time due to rushed offence. Strong defence held off High's come back in the second half to win by three points. The team is most grateful to Shane Howsen for his help with skills and 1 encouragement 1 in developing team discipline at training 16E CP Barchelor, DL Bradfield, CJ Bolten, RA Clapham, JA Forsyth, JA Fraser, BR Gilles, GJ Londish, JR McDonald, TH Pike, JG Smith, TGJ Worledge After a triumphant start of the season against Trinity Grammar School, winning 54-26, the team settled inro a more relaxed routine, and had to wait until the end of the season to win again, this time against Newington College. Throughout the season, the players, from Forms IV and V, spent most of their time improving their defensive strategies, and developing their shooting skills. Since training was done in fairly difficult conditions, especially in the squash court, it was most interesting to see the boys creating and practising new shooting, defensive and passmg techniques. This large team was divided in two groups, which allowed for easy substitution. As shooting guards, Jeremy Fraser and Greg Londish played an essential role in organising the attack 'and also helped in defence. Jeremy proved to be a good scorer (12 points in eight games). Greg scored six points, but often played a key-role in rebounds as well as in conquering the ball. In the point guard position, two players alternated. Jordan McDonald demonstrated his ability in shooting by scoring 16 points in the first two games. He also played an important role in both attack and defence. The other point guard was Tom Pike who proved an enthusiastic player and a great captain. On the field, he played in all positions, showing tremendous energy in every aspect of the game. He was also the top scorer (22 points in eight games), along with Brendan Gilles. In defence, Tristan Worledge was an efficient power forward, always keen to fight for every ball and to lead counterattacks. Despite some injuries, he kept on doing his best in each game, and was a live \y member of the ream. 103

104 Rob Clapham also proved a good small forward often leading the counterattack. james Forsyth was also a great defender. He had a stint as captain and was a very positive member of the team, always keen to improve his skills. As for David Bradfield, he was one of the last defenders to protect our basket. He also achieved some amazing feats, scoring a three pointer. Despite a few illnesses and injuries, he participated actively iri training. As for the centre, the responsibility of grabbing all rebounds was left to Chris Bolton and jordan Smith. Both constantly tried their best in both defence and attack. Last,, but not least, Campbell Batchelor joined the ream at the end of the season. Although he had never played in a formal basketball team beft;>re, he showed a great enthusiasm for the game. Unfortunately, he injured his knee, which prevented him from playing in any garne. The season ended with a great win against Newington. After a draw and a loss, the team finally managed in that third encounter, to put all their skills and training 1 together 1 and to win easily (24-5). Congratulations to all for a great season, and good luck for next year. ISA AC Bishoff, WGM Cowper, JJA Fyfe, P Giorgiutti, DP Hood, T] Howell, T] Moles, AW Ryder The success of this season for the lsas can be attributed to the willingness of the team to work hard together during training and put into play those strategies they developed. The team was ably led by Alex Bishoff, who developed the skill of reading the play and switching defensive strategies. Alex Ryder 1 s exceptional ball handling skills allowed us to sustain some heavy defence and run plays and Will Cowper, with his exceptional passing game and desire to run the floor had a great season. Daniel. Hood was a useful asset under the boards and developed some slick footwork from the low post. Peter Giorgiutro, playing up a grade this year, was a great addition to the team. Jeremy Fyfe played the off guard position and was very strong coming off d1.e bench. It was a pity to have Tom Moles out injured for some weeks and we missed his comrol of the backboards. Tom Howell was also a valuable member of the team who developed strongly through the season. During the pre season competition in Term IV of!998 the record was very strong for the team with only one game lost ro a strong Scots team that went on undefeated through the season. During the matches in 'Term I the results were as follows. VIle had a good start to the season beating Joeys after being down 8-0 at the start. The next game was against Scots and it was a pity ro come up against a whole game of zone defence at this level. The opposition were big and experienced and Shore had great difficulty peneuating recording a loss The next game was aga~nst Riverview and although we did not expect to win, the loss was a close result but disappointing because of some fundamental errors in defence. The following week against Newington we played a much better defensive game, 104

105 complemented by some successful shoo[ing and suong rebounding m mke us to a win. This next game against Grammar saw a strong performance although the winning score line in Shore's favour did not reflect our dominant play. The final against High was a convincing win (70-29) in a game with little or no structure from the opposition. It was nevenhless a nice way to finish the season. IS B MJD Bentivoglio, TR Gow-Gates, AJ Gross, MJ Heasman, MM Holmes, RC Mack, AT May, JB McCullough CJ Pegg While wins were a little hard to come by for the lsbs it was certainly encouraging m see the boys 1mprovwg and developing their skill level as the season progressed. What was perhaps most memorable was the way in which they went about their business with such enthusiasm and a sense of fun. Apart from a comprehensive beating by a far superior ScO[s team, all games were close. This included a nail biting loss to Grammar where luck deserted Shore seconds before the final buzzer. The ream was one point in front, before a foul brought a Grammar player to the 'Free Throw Line.' At this level one shor from two, at any point in the game, is considered adequate. 'Landing' both shots under such pressure to steal the game was an amazing feat. Shore had promised much during the season but had not really worked together as a team until the final game against Sydney High. This was a fitting way to finish, with all players combining fluently in a comprehensive Win. A feature of this match was the confidence, enthusiasm and composure of the Shore players. Good spacing, effective cutting to the basket, communication and determination in defence provided the type of play that the team lacked in previous weeks. Marcus Benrivoglio led the team well. His skill level continued to improve and his enthusiasm was never in doubt. Tom Gow-Gates, Matthew Holmes and Andrew May were all effective ball handlers, providing many scormg opportunities for the team. Rob Mack and Martin I-leasman were strong under the backboards in taking rebounds and in 'posting up.' Allen Gross was in the 15Bs early in the season, before being promoted to the As. He was sorely missed, as we did not have an adequate point guard replacement. It was the Bs luck that Allen rejoined the side with three games to go. The difference he made to the team was remarkable. Not only did he score a huge number of points (36 against Sydney High), but also he provided 111any opportunities for the other players. Campbell Pegg and James McCullough were promoted from the C team late in the season. They more than justified their selection. The ream deserves credit for the way they conducted themselves. It was impressive ro see them maintain focus and effort despite some disappoiming losses. At no time did they lose their sense of humour or enjoyment and it was clear they had a healthy view of both winning and losing. 105

106 ISC M S Bewley, M 1 C Bradd, F L Chui, H 0 Irving, B M Jennings, E H I-I Martin, B J Swaddling, A Van Der Sluys The ISCs enjoyed a very successful season in due to good skills, a willingness to learn and train hard, good communication and teamwork, and an enjoyment of the game. Over the whole season the team won nine games and lost four, scoring 485 points and conceding 402. Ed Martin was a versatile player who handled the ball well and shot reliably, scoring 13 points of 29 in a low scoring victory against Riverview in Term IV. Fraser Chui was a lightning fast defender and very handy in a fast break. Hugh Irving was unforrunately sidelined for most of Term I with illness, but was a solid player and consistent scorer when he did play. Ben Swaddling was the reverse lay-up king and scored '70 points throughout the season. Speed, height and a big vertical jump made him a great asset. Our top scorer for the season with 72 points was Adam Van Der Sluys, although at times his foul rate was not far behind his scoring rate. Late additions to the team, Mauhew Bradd and Ben jennings, brought energy and plenty of points with them. Matthew scored 3 7 points in four games and Ben scored 20 points of 52 against Grammar, making him the top scorer in a single game all season. Campbell Pegg, James McCullough and Andrew May made big contributions to the team before they were promoted w the Bs. James scored 70 points in nine games and Campbell played well at point guard. The team is to be congratulated on their teamwork and tenacity. Having been beaten by Riverview and Newington in Term IV, they won their return matches in Term I. The Riverview game was a particularly memorable performance in the second half when we drew away to win Likewise the game against Grammar in Term IV was a hard-won victory played with great intensity (52-42). lsd P Bradd, S Clarke, R Greenland, B Houng-Lee, D Hunt, 1 Jarrett (C), C Moody, N Pride, T Quinn The!50s basketball team enjoyed a most successful and enjoyable season in Training was marked by reliability, good humour and enthusiasm, even when courts were scarce. This commitment to trammg made a significant difference to the speed with which skills were acquired. Given the inexperience of the team, the standard of play by the end of the season was exceptionally good. The first of the trial games, on Library Court at school, wasn't pretty. A combined Cs and Ds team fumbled, fell and fouled their way through the morning, leaving plenty of scope for training drills. Many players had never played basketball before, so there was lots of work to be done. There were distinct advantages in Dylan Hunt's height and Brendan Houng-Lee's agility. The team tried to hold onto Matthew Bradd and Ben Jennings, bm when wm cl got out of their shooting successes, they disappeared 106

107 into the black hole of the Cs team. Peter Bradd stepped in late in the season after an injury, and played strongly in his brother's place. Unfortunately, because many schools didn't field D teams in the ISs age group, Shore had to play a number of schools more than once. By the end of the season, players got to know the boys from Newington and Riverview by their first names. The team won once against both of rhose schools but lost on the other two occasions, albeit by one point against Riverview. Memorable wins include the unbalanced game against Waverley's ISHs (99-22) and against St Josephs (43-24) and Barker (52-8). Notable moments in the season include Nick Pride's three poinrer against St Josephs, the famous 'walking game' against Grammar in the rain (lowest basketball score in history, we won 9-3), and Tom Quinn's profound belief in the free-throw theory that 'It's all in the air-hole'. A great team, well captained by the ever-reliable Jake Jarrett, and a fun season filled with lots of laughs. 148 CE Allsop, AD Chalmers, MM James, RW James, DAG Kimber, KP McFarland, JDM Pixley, JP Rochlin, TO Rudkin, PA Vines From the first game of the season it was clear that this team would enjoy a great deal of success. This was very pleasing, probably because each player identified areas of weakness and made considerable effort to improve. During the season, the 'first five' changed frequently bur the team remained the same, reflecting a strong spirit of competition. The only loss came in a very exciting first round game against Newington. The team focused on this game in the second round and were convincing winners. Other highlights included massive wins over St Josephs, Kings and High. Jono Pixley led the team with distinction. His on field and off field behaviour set the high standard that was achieved by the team. He has great individual skills and would steal the opposition ball many times a game. Peter Vines was our 'big man' and gave great service to the team in the key. Kurt McFarland improved wirh every game to become an important part of our attack. Craig Allsop became more physical on court and in so doing was promoted from the bench. Josh Rochlin was.similarly promoted to the staning five for his shooting ability and defence. The team lost nothing when the bench players were used, and at times they were instrumental in winning some close games. Tim Rudkin worked hard and was effective in attack. Mathew James was the most improved player coming up from the Cs to top score on two occasions. Richard James consistently rebounded well and scored crucial points in the key. Sandy Chalmers always made an impact when he came off the bench, both in attack and defence. Daniel Kimber was a very versatile player who could be used effectively as a guard or as a forward. Congratulations to all who made this such an enjoyable and successful season. 107

108 14C WA Bateman, MI Gilmour, ET Goodridge, LDV Kramer, AJ Luchetti, JMJ Nisbet, JM Peach, RL Smith, ZR Thompson, AG Wood The 14Cs had a very successful season, compiling a record of four wins and two losses. They began very successfully but later games were hard fought and the 14Cs showed their character and tenacity by coming up victorious on most occasions. The season began with an easy victory over the Knox ISG side. At this game James Peach revealed the scoring touch that would make him the leading ream scorer in most of the remaining games. Richard Smith rebounded strongly and scored what appeared (by his celebrations) to be his first ever basket. Our next victory was over Scots. The 14Cs revealed a greater team effort with comributions from the previously quiet Zac Thompson and Lucas Kramer. Alex Luchetti also shone as a tenacious defender and quick fast-break man. The next game was perhaps the ream 1 S most impressive effort all season despite losing to St Ignatius. The boys fought back from an eight-point deficit at half time to score five unanswered baskets and take a two-point lead. T'he lead was again lost but Shore fought back a second time only to succumb to a very tall and skilful team. The next hard fought victory was against an aggressive Newington side. jason Nisbet used his quickness to lead the scoring and Will Bateman used his size: to contribute defensively and with rebounds. Grammar were our next opponents and this time Evan Goodridge and Adam Wood took the limelight. Evan, who worked consistently all season,. took charge on both offence arid defence, sening up many scoring opportunities while thwarting others at the defensive end. Adam scored a number of key baskets when the game was tight. With injuries to key players, the final game of the season turned out to be a difficult match in which Sydney High were too strong. The 14Cs were a strong team in their competition and lived up to their potential. They were a pleasure to be associated with. 140 K Elith, B Sherry, R Lewis, R Gregory, T Medway, J Wynter, A Landis, J Chan, A Stevens The season for the 14Ds basketball team was mixed. It required a steep learning curve for both the players and coach since most of the team had little experience of the game. The focus for the season was on improving the level of fitness and learning a range of essential skills. Whilst they lost a number of games, they also won a few against Kings and Sydney High School. Brendan Sherry was a very good shooter and whenever he was on the court the team felt they had a chance. Richard Lewis and Richard Gregory, alike in name, were also alike in their enthusiasm on court. Tim Medway proved to be a strong contender for the 1 Most lmproved 1 title, as he came in as a very inexperienced player and finished the season as one of our highest scorers. Jason Wynter and Nick Martin were renowned for their 108

109 team spirit, always encouraging the team during moments of defeat. Adam Landis and Jarrett Chan also worked very hard to improve their skills and fitness on the coun. Andrew Stevens was a late addition to the team, but his energy and drive were most valuable in lifti_ng team spirit and focus. Overall the boys had a commendable season, their defence tactics and shooting skills improved and it was great to finish the season with a fine win against Sydney High. Hopefully the boys will be able to improve upon the skills they have gained and have a bright future in basketball at Shore. 13A RJ Broadfoot (C), MS Bell, SH Kiely, BT Slessar, WK Allen, LA Rochlin, TH Daymond, AFS Jones, WM Chambers, M]Stott New year, new boys and a new coach were the ingredients gathered by the 13As to begin the 1999 Basketball season. Instead of producing instability and defeat this turned out to be a winning recipe. In a year that is vital for the development of skills and the acquisition of a ream ideal, these boys handled both challenges with an enthusiasm and mawrity. The team was lead by Richard Broadfoot who not only finished with the second highest scoring average (14ppg) but who also learnt that a leader makes others look good, and he soon became the ream's distributor. The dominant force inside the key was the massive Matthew Bell (16ppg) who was both an immovable object on defence and an irresistible force on offence. His ability ro score was easily the most impressive among the GPS schools. These two players were superbly aided by Sam Kiely, Byron Slessar, Will Allen and Will Chambers. The bench was a secret discovered late in the season as the movement of Angus Jones into the As along with Tim Daymond's comeback and Luke Rochlin's constant enthusiasm finished the job the starters began. The 13As lost only one game this year and that by only two points (Scots 28-26). The remaining games were a lesson to all GPS schools that these boys will be a real force in years to come and a team worth watching out for. These wins were agains(joeys 51-11, Newingron 77-24, Grammar 44-29, High 76-17, Kings BE Armstrong, DPB Hall, TE Clemens (C), BP Sanderman, CJ Gillings, GE Hambley, Mj North, DB Roberrson What a season! For many of the boys it was their first time playing basketball and at times it showed. However, what they lacked in skill was made up for with determination and enthusiasm. Each player conuibutcd well and it was clear that a ceam spirit had developed. With Tim Clemens as captain, encouragement and leadership came from on and off the court. Ex-Cs players, Chris Gillings and Danny Hall, proved to be the surprise packages of the 13B competition. Both players showed slick ball skills and an ability to finish lay-ups. Ben Sandeman was obviously the quickest player on the 109

110 court and he used his speed to make other teams look pedestrian. The other Ben, Ben Armsuong, was one of the keenest players, constantly pleading to be put back on court when substitudons had been made. Ben 1 s outside shooting was his forte and whenever he made a shot at training he would be the first to tell the ream. Giles Hambley was another important member of the squad who would give his all for the team, even trying to sneak onto the court unnoticed despite the fact that his singlet was covered in blood. Mark North, another 1 super-sub 1, provided necessary defence and he and Danny Hall mounted a number of great steals throughout the year. Last and by no means least was Dougal Robertson whose unassuming play led to a number of baskets for other players. In short it was a fantastic season, with players getting ro know each other and enjoying their sport. This enjoyment was reflected on the scoreboard with an undefeated season. IJC AA Austin, JS Bennett, TE Harvey, H.JC James, CC Mengler, AC Miller, CD Moore (C), TRA Read, JML Want A great season and an undefeated team! Points for: 294, against: 107. The season was characterised by plenty of spirit and fun. The team made its mark as a quickpassing group and plenty of possession came from solid man-ro-man defence. Captain Chris Moore led by example with speed in attack and outstanding defence, stealing the ball, anticipating passes, using position and thinking quickly. Alex Austin was always full of fire and James Want finished the season with a blinder of a game against High. Tom Read and Tom Harvey were also quick and versatile players who were equally at home in all positions, often taking rebounds from taller players. Harry James, Andrew Miller and Christian Mengler worked well round the basket, contributing much with their defence, rebounding and passmg. Although many of the games were won with big margins, the most exciting game was against Riverview which saw both teams within a few points of each other throughout, ending in pouring rain with a one point victory for Shore. A most enjoyable season with a group of boys whose readiness to share the ball around will make them a force in the future. 130 JD Cairncross, PT Blyth, OK Holt, LP Mulholland, NP Newling, SR Noble(C), TG Riddington, CA Stevenson, NJ Thompson The Shore!30s had an encouragmg start in their first season of basketball, winning four out of their six games and improving with every match. All players combined well during training and games with their success being mainly due to teamwork rather than any standout individuals. Sam Noble was a fine leader, always being enthusiastic on the court and eager to learn at practice. His rebounding ability was vital in every game. Luke Mulholland and Joel Cairncross were the leading scorers of the side. On the defensive end Chris Stevenson, Tom 110

111 Riddingron and Nick Newling showed tremendous determination at all rimes. David Holt and Nick Thompson formed an imposing centre combination, both being taller than almost all of their opponents. Patrick Blyth. was a -versatile player, capable of fitting into any available position. All team members should be proud of their improvemem throughout the season and hopefully they will continue with basketball in years to come. Results 6/2199 St Josephs won /2199 Grammar F won /2199 Riverview lost /3/99 Newington won /3/99 Grammar D lost /3/99 High won First XI CRICKET -The season promised much for the First XI. Five players were returning from the last season 1 s ream and there were a good number of players from the premiership-winning Second XI. Therefore expectations were high. Unfortunately, the team failed to deliver at important moments; having turned at Christmas just one point behind the leaders, Shore eventually finished fifth in the GPS competition-a reasonable reflection of an inconsistent season. The early signs were cenainly encouraging. The trial match against SJC at Hunters Hill saw the top six batsmen ger good starts, although none was able to convert it into a substamial innings. In the following trial, against SGS, Adam Edge played the innings of the season, in scoring 169", and shared a partnership of 249 wirh Christo Ferguson (85). However, it was w be a misleading introduction to the competirior1. In the seven GPS games, only two batsmen, Edge and Ferguson, were able to pass 50 and there were no centuries scored. Yet on numerous occasions batsmen were able to get starts, and frequently reached the 20s. However, all too often soft dismissals occurred when so much of the hard work had been done. The bowling attack was determined, but too frequently found that they were defending smallish totals. No team dominated the Shore attack; indeed Newington's total of 200 was the highest scored by the opposition n the competirion. The fielding of the side was, for the most part, very good, and this Ill

112 was highlighted in the final session of the season, when James Ronaldson wok one of the finest catches 'seen at Northbridge for many seasons. Round 1 Shore v. Scots (Northbridge) S~ots won the toss and invited Shore ro bat on an evenly grassed wicket. Jack Luchetti (!) was bowled in the seventh over, but Lachlan Foulsham (19) and James Ronaldson (36) pushed the. score along steadily, until Foulsham was run out with the score on 43. Ferguson (38) then helped take the score to 2/70, before Ronaldson was dismissed, when he appeared to be on top of the bowling. Edge (17) and Ferguson, both in tremendous form from the week before, put on a further 44, but then, with the dismissal of Edge, a collapse followed, and Shore was bundled out for 152 with just under a session to play. The portents for the season were ominous - five of the cop six batsmen reached double figures, yet the cop score was 26. Funher~ wre, five of the top seven batsmen were caught, reflecting the fac[ that the wickers were given away relatively softly, after hatd work had been done. Shore took to the field with an hour to bowl, hoping to capture cheap wickets before stumps. Scots, however, played sensibly, and left the field on 41 without loss. Shore had its work cut out, if it was going to win the following week. The first Scots wicket fell after 30 minutes on the second Saturday, but the score was taken to 1/65 without apparent trouble. The next wicket, and then a third with the score on 77, gave some cause for optimism, bur still it seemed that Scots were on top. The game turned, however, when Ferguson (5/43) claimed his first wicket: a catch to Luchetti. The score was then 4/100; but pressure started to build and, when Ferguson captured another, the Scots lower order was exposed. Edge (4/20) was bowling with good control, and Scots soon found themselves pushing and prodding at deliveries, rather than attacking. Wickets fell gradually, bur few runs were being scored, and with the fall of the ninth wicket, the score was 134. In the tense final few overs, Sturrock (1112) and Ferguson maintained the pressure, and the fieldsmen stuck to the task well Ferguson ensured the result soon after bowling the last batsmen to leave Scots on 139, thirteen runs short. It was a commendable win, as Shore had to fight hard to regain the ascendancy. However the total of 152 was disappointing given the fact that so many batsmen established themselves. Round 2 Shore v. Newington (Stanmore) Shore travelled ro Stanmore and was surprised w find a wicket with a lush covering of grass. Newington won the toss, and Shore was sent in. Foulsham (5) was dismissed in the second over, caught behind, but Luchetti (15) and Ronaldson (19) took the score to 48 within half an hour of lunch. That half an hour was to prove crucial, however. Ronaldson was adjudged leg before, Ferguson (5) was caught and bowled three overs later, and then Lucheni, who had concenuated and applied himself well, was bowled on the stroke of lunch. Shore went to the bteak at 4/59, having lost 3/11 in the final eight overs. 112

117 Another wicket shortly after lunch and Shore was well and truly on the back foot. The lower order provided some resistance, but the side was dismissed before tea, with a total of 120. Once again, a reasonable start had been squandered. However the wicket was still seaming and, should the bowlers apply good pressure, there was time to reassert authority on the match. With 20 minutes to bowl before tea, Rob Sturrock (4/35) provided an excellent start, and Newingwn found themselves going to the break at 2/20. A few minutes after the restart, Edge (2/26) bowled the Newington opener and the score was 3/22. However, a sensible, authoritative partnership saw the score move to 81 before the fall of another wicket. Another breakthrough then would have put Shore back in the game. However Newington did not falter and the fifth wicket fell only three runs short of Shore's score. The day finished with Newington at 6/136, in an excellent position going into the second week. The following Saturday saw a much better wicket for batting, and it was clear that Shore would need to bowl well. Newington was finally dismissed for 200 before lunch. The wicket was playing well, but Luchetti (1) was out before the break, and Shore was tentative going into the middle session. The only option was to seek to bat out the day, but it was important that a score was built, and that partnerships were developed. James Ronaldson (39) was the foundation for the innings and he, along with Mike Carroll (24) helped Shore to avoid a second innings collapse. At one srage, with the score on 3/46, Shore was in a precarious position, but the day finished at 6/134, Andre Leslie (15") and Simon Orbell (3") seeing out the final overs. This was a sobering result for Shore, and it was important that a strong performance was shown in the final match of the term, against High. Round 3 Shore v. High (Centennial Park) At Centennial Park, High won the toss, and elected to bat on a typical patchy and slightly uneven McKay pitch. Sturrock (4/8) captured early wickets, and High was in trouble at 3/10. A partnership then developed, however, and the fourth wicket did not fall until shortly before lunch, with the score on 52. But the High lower order crumbled in the face of Ferguson (3/15) and Leslie (2/17), and the innings totalled 89. A slightly uncertain starr saw three Shore wickets fall for 41, but then Ferguson (76") and Edge (55") shared in an unbroken stand of 135, and the innings was declared at 3/176 (a lead of 87) half an hour before stumps. The High openers saw out that testing period, but Shore was in a comm~nding position with a day to play. The start on the second day was delayed by an hour o_wing to a few small damp patches on the wicket, and a soft run up at one end. However, the day was fine and when play did Start, the Shore bowlers sought to tear into the top order. However, some resolute batting by High meant that wickets were initially less easy to come by, and the score moved to 2/39. Leslie (3/26) then found the spot, and a collapse followed. With Ferguson (4/40), the spinners ran through the lower order, and High was dismissed for I 04, an overall lead of just 17. Nick Dorney (I 0") was given an 117

118 opportunity to show his wares as a batsman and, despite the loss of Foulsham (2), the runs were knocked off after seven overs for an outright win. This meant that Shore went to the Christmas break with 17 points, only one behind both Newington and St Josephs. New Zealand Tour In the final two weeks before Term I, a Shore First XI played against Lancing College, Surrey. This game was won quite easily by Shore, and it was, in most respects, an encouraging performance. Batting first, Shore scored 6/236 (Edge 80, Foulsham 50, Ronaldson 39, Wakes 39 ), and then dismissed Lancing for 125 (Law 3/11, Edge.3/25). A squad of 13 players then travelled to New Zealand to compete in a triangular trans-tasman festival, involving Shore, Christ College, Christchurch, and King's College, Auckland. After two excellent days in Queenstown, Shore played a one-day game against a Canterbury Country U-17 team at the picturesque Willows ground, and won quite convincingly. Chasing the Canterbury total of 9/196 (Sturrock 4/32, Tourle 2/26), Shore reached the score for the loss of five wickets, with 12 overs to spare (Ronaldson 53, Foulsham 45, Carroll 24 ). The team approached the two two-day games with confidence. However, both games were similar in standard and result, and Shore found itself outplayed by more aggressive and determined sides. On a seaming wicket, Kings, Auckland, delared at 8/252, and then bowled Shore out for 156 (Luchetti 38, Foulsham 35, Edge 30). The Kings second innings was declared at 5/128 (S<urrock 2/15, Leslie 2/20) leaving Shore to score 225 for victory. However, Shore was never in the race, and finished the game at 7/140 (Ronaldson 38). Christ College scored 175 in their first innings (Sturrock 4/35); but Shore managed only 125 (Ferguson 31, Edge 30, Wills 26) in reply. A good bowling and fielding effort in the second innings saw Christ College declare at 8/138 (Dorney 3/16), a lead of 188. However, in the face of some hostile bowling and aggressive fielding, Shore finished the game at 8/151 (Leslie 34, Foulsham 30). On the first Saturday of lerm I, a game against a composite ream, involving a number of members of the victorious First XI resulted in a comfortable win for the First XI. The Invitation XI scored 9/150 (Sturrock 3/25) and was overhauled for the loss of only three wickets with three overs to spare. Simon Orbell's 53 at the top of the order was most encouraging, as was Luchetti's 41 (an opening stand of 77) and Ronaldson's 44*. The fielding of Stobo for the Invitation XI also deserves mention. The style of cricket and the nature of the wickets in New Zealand were considerably different from the GPS, however the First XI should have gleaned much from the festival. Round 4 Shore v. St Josephs (Northbridge) The New Zealand tour had seen a change in captaincy, with Lachlan Foulsham relinquishing the position and Christo Ferguson raking over for the second part of the season. He won the toss and, after some deliberation, Shore chose to bat firsr. The outfield at Northbridge was unusually long, owing 118

119 to a problem with the mowers, and it was obvious that boundaries would be difficult to come by. Shore's innings began nervously, with only Foulsham (32) showing the composure necessary. However, a middle-order partnership of 68 between Edge (58) and Mike Carroll (26) ensured a respectable total. Unfortunately, as was to be the case all season, wickets fell at crucial times, and the score of 8/160, while reasonable, was certainly passable. The St Josephs fielding was of a high standard, and the catch at backward point that dismissed Christo Ferguson (1) was superb. At the end of the day, it was the fielding that was to prove the difference between the sides. The St Josephs innings began tentatively, and after 25 overs the score had crawled 10 1/35. Wickets then began to fall and after 50 overs, with the score 5/102, Shore probably held the upper hand. Andre Leslie (2/25) had bowled well but had bowled out his overs. St Josephs upped the tempo considerably in the final overs,_ rook risks, and placed pressure on the Shore fielding. Unfortunately, cracks appeared in the field, run out opportunities were missed, and St Josephs managed to secure victory for the loss of only one more wicket. It was a demoralising result for Shore. For much of the game, Shore had possibly outplayed St Josephs, but in the crucial moments, St Josephs had shown greater composure and maturity. Round 5 Shore v. Kings (White Oval) Shore won the toss and elected to bat on a wicket that appeared flat and true, but contained some moisture from the rain of the previous week. The outfield was also damp, and it was anticipated that the ball would pick up moisture and soften during the innings. Unfortunately, by the eighth ball of the innings, both openers, Simon Orbell and Lachlan Foulsham, were dismissed without a run on the board. Shore was on the back foot from then on, and was never in control of the game. James Ronaldson (IS) and Christo Ferguson (40) put on 36 together, but the only other player to reach double figures was Nick Dorney (24"), whose innings included a well struck six over midwicket. Shore was dismissed for 107 in the 60th over. With 37 overs to bowl that afternoon, it was hoped that pressure would create wickets. Leslie (4/53) opened the bowling with his off breaks, and his first nine overs conceded just four runs. This allowed the seamers to attack at- the other end but wickets did not fall quickly. At stumps Kings were 5/87, still 20 short of the Shore total. The second day dawned bright and sunny and the Kings score edged forward until 15 runs shy, Leslie claimed a wicker. However, despite the loss of a further wicket, Kings passed the Shore total and against a dispirited attack posted a score of 173, half an hour before lunch. The opening Shore partnership of 27 was dominated by Foulsham (22), but three quick wickets left Shore at 3/32. Then Ferguson (78 ) and Edge (32) put on 56 for the fourth wicket, and Dorney's cameo (20*) late in the piece ensured that the game remained a one innings affair. 119

120 Round 6 Shore v. St Ignatius (Riverview) On an overcast day after winning the toss for the third time in succession, Shore chose to send Riverview in on a slow looking wicket. Dorney (2/28) and Sturrock (2/21) struck early and with Riverview in trouble at 2/5 the decision appeared to be vindicated. However an aggressive and entertaining half-century by the Riverview No.4 batsman changed the tone of the game, and ultimately proved to be the difference between the sides. Wickets fell at the orher end, but the score mounted and, with the final two wickets putting on 48, the innings closed at 177. Andre Leslie's 3/35 from 17 overs was commendable, and the innings was also nocable for Adam Edge's histrionics upon the dismissal of Riverview's half-centurion. Shore's innings began well and Foulsham (24) and Orbell (28) pur on 39 for the first wicket. Then Foulsham and Ronaldson (0) were dismissed 1n successive deliveries, and the innings lost some momentum. Ferguson (19) joined Orbell and a further 37 were added before Orbell was run out thirty minutes from the end of the day. It proved to be a crucial wicket. Ferguson was dismissed without addition to the score, and subsequent wickets meant that Shore finished the day ac 6/93, having been 2/76 just half an hour earlier. Wokes' first ball (hit for six over square leg) was also rather extraordinary, given the circumstances. The second day began slowly, with Edge (24) and Wokes (12) batting cautiously. Wakes was dismissed in the loth over and, with the introduction of spin, Edge went eight overs later. With Edge's dismissal, the score was 8/118, and Shore chose to declare, hoping that Riverview - who were in a similar position on the competition ladder, and out of the race for the Premiership - would look to set a target to chase in the afternoon. While it was not anticipated that the target would be easy, Riverview elected to bat for 55 overs, into the scheduled tea break, and declared at 9/147, a lead of 205. Ferguson's 4/46 was well deserved, and at one stage Riverview were in real trouble at 8/94. Had they been dismissed shortly thereafter, the game would have been set for an interesting finish. Shore was left a minimum of 25 overs in which to get the runs. This was an absurd target (over eight runs an over), and the afternoon was basically killed. Elliot Tourle (51 ) made the most of his promotion to Number 6 in the order, and he and Mike Carroll (24) put on 59 for the 5th wicket. The day finished with Shore on 6/108. Having turned at Christmas on 17 points, and only one point below the competition lead, Shore had gleaned only three points from the subsequent three games, and needed to win the final game, against Grammar, to salvage lost pride. Round 7 v. Grammar (Northbridge) The result of the Grammar game was very important in determining the final standings in the competition. A win over Grammar could see Shore finish third, however a loss would certainly mean seventh position. Ferguson won another toss, and Shore batted first. Foulsham (1) was out LBW in the first over of the day and 120

121 Ferguson (2) was out shortly after. Orbell (24) and Edge ( 41) consolidated, and moved the score to 69 before Orbell was dismissed just prior co the lunch break. Edge was our almost immediately after lunch, being caught at slip, and Shore was once again suffering from an inability to convert starts, and establish worthwhile partnerships. Wokes (30), batting at Number 8, ensured that the score would be respectable, and Leslie (18 ) and Sturrock (7) put on what would prove to be an important 13 runs for the final wicket. Shore was finally dismissed for 165. Shore bowled 21 overs that afternoon, and Grammar finished the day 2/39. The openers were quickly back in the pavilion, Sturrock having dismissed both. The game was evenly poised going into the second day. Grammar continued on the second morning, and the score climbed to 62 before the fall of the third wicket, again to Sturrock. Another wicket, to Edge (1/35) followed five runs later, and at 4/67, Shore possibly had the upper hand. However the Grammar captain who came co the wicket at 1/2, was batring well, and he took the partnership to 55 runs. Then, 10 minutes before lunch, and with no real signs of a breakthrough being imminent, Nick Dorney {1/15) captured a wicket. Grammar went to lunch at 5/135, jusr 31 short of victory, and had reason to feel the game was theirs. The Grammar captain held the key but with the score at 143, just 22 runs shy of the Shore total, he holed out off Leslie (1/27) to mid-off, where Nick Wokes juggled, and held, the catch. It was at this point that Rob Sturrock came imo his own. \Vith three wickets under his belt already, he was bowling with good pace and excellent control. His first three overs after lunch were maidens, then in his fourth he captured a wicket making the score 7/143. A catch at slip off a noball followed, but the last ball of Sturrock's 18th over saw the catch of the season, by James Ronaldson. Running some metres to his right, he dived with outstretched right arm to hold the catch just inches from the ground. It was inspirational, and the team understood its significance. The score was now 8/144, and in Sturrock's next over it became 9/144. Four wickets had fallen in the space of six overs, for only one run. Some lusty hitting followed but, mercifully for Shore, the final wicket came just five runs later. It was an unusual dismissal - a well-struck drive rebounded from Sturrock's hand onto the stumps, with the non-striker well out of his ground. Shore had won by 16 runs. Rob Sturrock's final spell was simply superb. In 6.2 overs after lunch he captured 3/1 (the run being a no-ball), and he effected the run-our. This gave him match figures of 6/20 from 20.2 overs, with 10 maidens; a truly outstanding effort. After some uncertainty, Shore was asked to bat again by Grammar and, after 16 overs, were comfortably placed at 1/58. Foulsham (JO ) and Orbell (25) had put on an opening stand of 50. Grammar then decided that they had had enough, and the game, and season, finally ended. Conclusion It was, on the whole, a disappointing season, as the team had enough talent to expect a finish in the top half of the 121

122 table. However, teams are not merely collections of individuals, and perhaps the First XI lacked a degree of 'team ness'. Christo Ferguson, with 271 runs at 33.9 and 23 wickets at 12.6 produced a very good all-round effort. He found himself captaining the side in the second part of the season, and this meant that he was heavily involved in every aspect of the game. He has a good deal of talent, and is a player to watch in the future. Rob Sturrock 1 s performance of 21 wickets at 8.4 was superb, particularly given the fact that he was unheralded at the beginning of the season, and ended up topping the GPS bowling averages. A whole-hearted player, what he lacks in natural ability he certainly makes up for in commitment. His success was well deserved, as was his selection in the GPS squad. Adam Edge would be relatively disappointed with his overall performance (258 runs at 28.7), given his precocious talent. He never managed to produce the innings of which he is capable, m a competition match, although his magnificent innings against Grammar in the trial showed his ability. His bowling was certainly impressive at times; he has the rare ability to take wickets when players appear set. Hopefully he will make the most of the opportunities offered to him in the GPS squad at the end of the year. Andre Leslie found wickets difficult to come by in the early rounds, but finished with 17 wickets at A thinking bowler, he likes nothing better than to be involved in the game, and his willingness to bowl long, miserly spells is an asset to any side. He too deserved his selection in the GPS squad. Lachlan Foul sham had a disappointing season In a number of respects, failing to turn any of his numerous starts into scores of substance. He found the line between his natural aggression as an opener and the need to be circumspect on occasions difficult to gauge, and unfortunately it led to a number of senseless dismissals. However he is a player with a good degree of talent, and a real love of batting, so it is hoped that next year will yield a better return. James Ronaldson did not have the season he hoped for, and this was in part due to his having to fill the testing No.3 position. A young man of tremendous character, he took the task on valiantly, but found himself in the middle too soon roo often. He demonstrated that his temperament is his great strength in his second innings against Newington, but unfortunately he often fell having reached 15 - this occurred eight times during the season, his highest score being 53. James was an outstanding team player, and has an astute mind for cricket. Mike Carroll is a player with quiet resolution, and batted at No. 6. Like many of the players above him in the order, he made 20 on many occasions, but lost his wicket when he appeared set. He will have learned a lot during the course of the season, and should reap the rewards in the next. His diligent application and desire to succeed should stand him in very good stead. Simon Orbell was the wicket keeper, and has a tremendous temperament for such a key role. A keen student of the game, and with a simple love of competition, he has the inner resolve necessary to do well in sport. He has the 122

124 natural anribmes of an excellent keeper: good hands, a good build, high standards and a desire to be involved in the game. He found himself opening the batting in the latter part of the season and has an important role to play in Nick Wokes joined the side for the final three games, and his contribution in terms of team spirit can not be measured. His good humour and no nonsense approach to the game is refreshing, and there were few finer moments than his first ball six against Riverview. He was also responsible for two fine catches and, while he is unorthodox, he certainly has the capacity to confuse opposition with his stroke play. Elliot Toutle was the youngest player in the side, and found that his opportunities were limited. He bowls with a fluent run up and notable follow through, and delivers the ball from very close to the stumps. With time he will develop his pace. His ability with the bat was evident in the second innings against Riverview, where he scored a sparkling half-century. This earned him promotion to No.5 for the final match. His potential as an all-rounder should be realised in the coming seasons. Nick Dorney also found that his opportunities during the season were limited, and it is testament to his character that he approached every aspect of the game with determination. Opening the bowling for much of the season, he has a natural outswinger and, when he found his rhythm, he beat the bat consistently. Perhaps it was as a batsman that he showed his real flair, however, and his two unbeaten innings against Kings showed his ability to time the ball sweetly. Henry Geddes began the season in the unfamiliar role of opening bowler, and there is little doubt that he has the natural strength and pace to unsettle batsmen. He is very much a rhythm bowler, and this was shown in New Zealand where, after some rather lacklustre spells, he produced fire and hostility in the final game. Unfortunately the wickets did not fall for him in the first part of the season, due in part to luck, but also to inconsistency. If he develops the confidence and ability to bowl six good balls an over next season, he will be a force with which to be reckoned. Jack Luchetti began as Foulsham's opening partner, but never really established himself in the role, although his 54"" in the second innings against Scots was certainly impressive. Hi$ talent is undoubted, but what needs to be developed is greater self-belief, and a hunger to dominate opponents. He too is a player of the future who should find next season offers him a better chance to establish himself. It was a team with great potential but, as it has often been said, potential never won anything. h was the year that might have been, but it was also a year of learning and character building. It is hoped that those players leaving Shore at the end of the year continue to play cricke[, and continue learning as a result. Those returning must take the season on board, and build on it. Second XI The Shore Second XI had a successful season with one outright win, four first innings wins and two losses. The team thoroughly enjoyed their cricket, which included a mid-season tour to Armidale, 124

125 and all players were able to develop and improve their skills. After a handful of trial matches in the September holidays, a somewhat inexperienced side mer Scots at Bellevue Hill in the opening competition match. This inexperience was exposed in d1e top order batting as Shore struggled to 7/56 at lunch, after winning the toss. However, despite the poor start Chris Gill was able to rescue his team-mates, playing what was arguably the best innings of the season. His timely 58, which included a full range of strokes, allowed Shore to achieve a defendable total of 109. As Shore took the field, the bowling attack of Smith, Dorney, jeremy Gill and Quilter made an immediate impact. Dorney (2/16) and Gill (3/16) were outstanding while james Law (3/3) was able to finish off the tail to see Scots all out for 62. Shore, and particularly Russell Terrey, were not content with first innings points. Terrey produced an entertaining 47 late on day one and Nick Wokes (33) and Peter Pagan (25 n.o.) consolidated early on day two, before Quilter declared at 5/139, a lead of 186. Good bowling from all the bowlers, particularly ]ames Law (4125), set up the possibility of outright victory. However Scots were able to save the match, finishing at 9/124 at stumps. Shore then travelled to Northbridge where Newington sent them in on an extremely difficult wicket. On the back foot early at 2/12, Quilter (40) and Dorney (36) settled in for a tough partnership that showed flashes of brilliant stroke play and runnmg between wickets. Both batsmen were dismissed either side of lunch, however Peter Pagan (34) and Nick Wokes (41) consolidated. Shore declared the innings at 8/218. Nick Dorney (3126) and jeremy Gill (2/21) again used the new ball to perfection crashing through the top order. Later contributions from Tim Smith, Quilter and Matthew Anderson enabled Shore to dismiss Newington for 141 for their second consecu rive first tnmngs wtn. The following game saw Shore invite Sydney High to bat on a graminaceous wicket. Elliot Tourle (4/19) and Russell Terrey ( 4/28) tore through High's batsmen, dismissing them for 85. David Baker (24) and ]ames Law (28 n.o.) steered Shore to a first innings win before declaring at 3/92. When High's batsmen retook the field, it was the variety of Terrey (3/31 ), the pace of debutante Nick Rose (3/12) and the consistency of jeremy Gill (2/21) which caused High to be dismissed for I OS. Through Law (28) and 'lburle (58) Shore was able to secure a 7-wicket victory with an hour. to spare. This win gave Shore the lead in the competition going into Christmas. The break saw Shore come out firing when they encountered joeys at the 'House of Pain'. Henry Geddes opened the day with the most memorable bowling spell of the season, combining pace and bounce to take 2/16. jeremy Gill was as successful at the other end taking 3/16 and this early onslaught provided a platform for Quilter to spin his way to 4/15 despite a stress fracture to the lower back. Although Shore only needed 90 to win, Joeys typically lifted their game and dismissed Shore for a dismal 56. The loss of Quilter saw Terrey lead the side against Kings at Northbridge. A lacklustre batting performance forced Shore to defend a less than adequate

126 Although Jeremy Gill (3/23) and Matt Anderson (3/51) bowled very well, Kings were able to take first innings points, declaring at 9/165. When Shore entered its second innmgs, a tenacious partnership between Pagan and Chris Gill, and an entertaining knock from Terrey were not enough to save the match for Shore. When Riverview arrived a week later, Shore returned to form on a miserable day at Northbridge. The combination of Jeremy Gill (4/26) and Mate Anderson (1/10) saw Riverview in early trouble before declaring at 8 for 72. Shore 1 s middle order then provided an entercaining return to form with Luchetti (19), Terrey (41), C Gill (21) and Pagan (28) all getting amongst the runs, before Shore declared at 9/166. When Riverview's openers retook the field they met a fired up Henry Geddes (3/18) who was instrumemal in almost pulling off an outright win. Riverview were han_ging on to be 9/55 at stumps. The final game at Weigall marked the return of the previously injured Quilter. After Grammar batted first with a degree of success, the first session was even with Grammar on 3/79. Handy spells from James Law (2/21) and Matt Anderson (2/73) laid the foundation for Russell Terrey (5/25) to produce a magnificent spell of leg spin bowling. Gramffiar were bowled o~t for a competitive 128. The Shore openers approached the run chase cautiously late on day one and due to some good bowling and fielding the 'Grammarians' eroded the Shore top order (6/57), finishing the day well on top. However, at the beginning of day two, Chris Gill (72) and Tim Low (62 ) were able to guide Shore home with a 102 partnership, easily the best of the season. Finishing third in the competition, high moraie off the field and audacious cricket on the field enabled the season to be one of high enjoyment. With nine of the players returning next season, the future looks bright for Shore cricket. Congratulations go to all players who participated in the Second XI cricket team in the 1998/9 season.

The team's strength lay in irs pace bowling attack, which bowled with consistency. The opening bowlers especially, were able to snare wickets continually without conceding runs. By the second half of the season, our batting had improved and the middle order began to compile solid innings, supporting the efforts of the bowlers. The first match against Scots began with some superb bowling by the opening pair. Nick Rose bowled tirelessly without luck, finishing with 1/34 from his first spell. He was partnered by Jonathan Chong, who took 126

127 all the wickets with his classic inswing, finishing with great figures of 6/31. This left Shore with the prospect of an outright victory. Greg Martin began the innings positively, carving out an unbeaten 67 with free flowing strokes. However a slight crumble in the middle order left Shore in trouble at 6/68 until Theo Souris stepped up to the crease and thumped a career best 44, putting in a strong case to be elevated in the ba[[ing lineup. This saved Shore 1 S innings and left the side ahead by 25. The bowlers now sought to hold onto that lead. Laughlan Davies moved the ball at pace to take a clean 4/16. But it was Jonathan Chong who stood out, in another fivewicket haul, 5/16. Shore reached their target easily to gain an outright win. On a small field, Newington elected to bat first, and Rose found his line and length from the onset taking a wicket in his second over. However he could not manage to hit the outside edge, finishing with economical figures of 1/20 from 12 overs. Despite using all possible bowlers, Shore could nor take another wicket and Newington were able to reach 186, a seemingly meagre target for the ground. -Shore entered their 1nmngs with confidence which quickly turned to dismay as the side was soon reeling at 5/54. Despite promising starts by Rod Macdonald and David Baker, no one was able to build a substantial score. just as one thought the match was over, Thea Souris and Nick Rose, both bowlers, showed hidden talents. In an entertaining partnership they were to add 40 runs to the score but the match was still lost. Shore faced High next in an easier match. Shore elected to field, and Chong, Davies and spinner, Matthew Anderson, took the wickets between them, bringing High 1 s innings to an end at 50. Anderson then made a fine 27 and Henry Duddy combined finesse and power w reach an unbeaten 61. Shore declared at 1/101. This declaration enticed High to anack. With the pace bowlers containing the batsmen without fall of wickets, spin king Jock Nivison was brought on. His flight enticed the High batsmen to 1 0pen their shoulders 1, which brought about their demise. Jock maintained his line and length, and clean-bowled the opposition, finishing with 5/16. With only 53 to score, Rod Macdonald and Alex Shaw savaged the High bowlers, reaching 55 in 10 overs to ensure another outright victory. The match against Joeys was the hardest of the season. It had been reduced to a one-day fixture, due to rain, which put pressure on the batsmen to perform. The top-order struggled, leaving the middle and lower-orders the task of building a respectable total. John Prince made a strong start, playing a sensible innings until a mix-up caused him to be run-out. In similar style, Davies was also run-out an over later. Shore was all out for 107. Shore then took to the field knowing the magnitude of the task ahead and the fielding and bowling were superb. Matt Press was successful behind the stumps, taking five catches. Nick Marquez fielded particularly well, stopping numerous boundaries in the outfield to keep the pressure on the batsmen. The bowling accolades go to many players with Davies, Chong, and Nelson acquiring admirable figures. The highlight though was Henry Duddy taking a sharp caught and bowled, proving his all-rounder capabilities. The result was a well- 127

128 earned victory, Shore bowling Joeys out for 74 in rhe 25th over. Kings also provided the side with a competitive match. Shore elected to bat on a hard batting wicket. The top-order, Greg Martin and David Baker, both established confident innings. However shots in the air brought their downfall. This trend continues down the order as four of the first five batsmen were caught. Matthew Press steadied the innings and compiled a reasonable total before being run-out and the lower-order crashed. However the side had their score increased by penalty runs due to slow play by Kings, bringing the total to 141. The following week, Kings began their innings on the attack, punishing stray deliveries. None of our bowlers could make an impact and Kings won with six wickets in hand. After this, the side consolidated and worked on improving bowling accuracy. The following match against Riverview demonstrated a remarkable improvement by all of the bowlers. This game was restricted to 36 overs due to rain with Shore sending the opposition into bat. Jamie Nelson was brought into the attack early, found his rhythm, and moved the ball towards the batsmen with vicious swmg. He finished his spell with 2/13, before Thea Souris stormed down the hill to clean bowl four batsmen. Nick Marquez bowled an efficient spell, snaring one wicket and Riverview ended their innings at 86. The batting was dominated by Shaw and Prince. John Prince played some free flowing strokes to make a steady 33 n.o. and Shore eclipsed Riverview at 4/44 in a controlled mmngs. The final game was played against Grammar; another match reduced to 36 overs due to poor weather. Shore sent Grammar in to bat looking to secure early wickets. Rose and Souris both bowled economically with figures of 1/27 and 3/13 respectively and Shore was in a dominant position after the first session, the score 6/33. However after the break, the Grammar batsmen settled and began to build a reasonable innings. The score steadily increased to 89, before Jonathan Chong was able to take a crucial wicket and break the partnership. The other wickets fell to Davies and Nelson, both using the swing of the ball to dismiss the lower order, and Grammar was all out for 125. Shore 1 s innings began strongly with Duddy and Shaw creating a 53 run opening stand. Thea Souris added to this with a typical 33 composed mainly of boundaries and Chong, Davies and Martin finished the innings off with scores of 13 each to bring victory The season consisted of some difficult matches that brought out the best m the team, each player contributing in some fashion. It was an enjoyable season due to the commitment shown by the players and their ability ro maintain pressure on the opposition regardless of the score. Fourth XI E Jones, C Drew, L Drynan, A Souris, C Brell, D Chenery, R McDonald, J Merriman, A Page, T Jamieson, A Perrin, D Chenery, R Rabbitt The Fourth XI showed itself ro be a team of great depth and character during the 1998/9 season. This can be easily seen in the team's successes. In the batting departmenr the team 128

129 had Eddie Jones, Chris Drew, Leonard. Drynan, Arie Souris, Chris Brell and Dave Chenery. Each of these had fine seasons with everyone having at least one score over 50. The most consistent of these were Arie Souris and Leonard Drynan. Both were able to score freely but safely- an important attribute in the one-day format. The batting was well supported by the lower order, especially Rod McDonald, Jono Merriman, Andrew Page, Tom Jamieson and Andrew Perrin, who had the abiliry to add quick runs in the last few overs of an innings. At times the fielding proved to be a weakness, especially in the tight games against )oeys. Nonetheless there were quite a few fine catches mken, and the chase and throw of the outfielders were of a high standard. Dave Chenery, behind the stumps, provided an able and safe pair of hands. The bowling of the Fourth XI was outstanding, with Jono Merriman and Ryan Rabbitt almost always taking early wickets. Tom Jamieson and Rod McDonald although at times erratic, provided electrifying pace. Andrew Perrin was a most versatile bowler, able to open or keep the runs down later in the innings and the spin of Andrew Page and Eddie jones proved triumphant, even on the smallest of grounds. Overall it was an enjoyable and successful season, in which the highlight was the strong team spirit and will to win that brought so many victories. Thanks must be given to Mr Lewarne for his tireless effort in welding the team together and to all the parems who, week in and week out, provided continuous support. Fifth XI MA Hunt (C), MRS Baggie, B) Noble, )OW Symons, WA McCloy, WPC Gray, JB Robertson, NK Ozinga, JT Kellett, js Moles, OjC Golson, j Bowyer The Fifths had a successful season winning six of the 10 games played (three of the losses being to the accomplished )oeys Fifths). Highlights of the season included a big-hitting 102 from Dave Gulson, a wonderful 63-run tenth-wicket partnership between james Kellett and James Robertson, a sixwicket haul to Miles Hunt and five wickets ro James Robercson. James Symons was the most consistent batsman, getting a strong starr. with the bat on all occasions. James Kellett managed to reach an incredibly high average of with the bat by midseason but missed out in the last couple of matches. Mark Baggie also worked consistently with the bat and there were good contributions on a number of occasions from Ben Noble, Dave Gulson, Will McCloy, Josh Bowyer, Josh Moles and james Robertson. The bowling anack was quite terrifying at times with the speed and volatiliry of Mark Baggie (9 wkts), Will Gray (6 wkts), Nick Ozinga (9 wkts) and james Kellett (8 wkts). Combine this with the relentless wicket-to-wicket accuracy of James Robertson (16 wkts) and the wily spin of Miles Hunt (17 wkts) and very few opposing teams looked comfortable at any stage of the innings. It is an impressive testimony to the strength of Shore cricket that boys of such significant standard are playing in 129

130 the Fifths and it is expected that a number of boys will figure in selections for the higher teams in their final season. It is to be hoped that Miles and James will be keen to continue their cricket beyond school in future years and continue co enjoy this wonderful game. 16A XI L Cameron-Clarke (C), SA Carson, JAS Druce, J FitzherbertSmith, WM Hunt, JDA Hutchinson, GH Keatinge, DJ MacPhillamy, MEG Parker, HW Roxburgh, TGO Smith, JDP Wills The 16As had a successful season with two narrow losses spoiling an otherwise unblemished record. The team had w deal with the loss of Jack Luchetti, Mike Carroll and Elliot Tourle to the Opens at the start of the season. This placed a greater responsibility on the other players and they responded magnificently. Luke Cameron-Clarke captained the team. He led by example and would not let injury or pain interfere with his performance behind the scumps. He relished the opportunity to stand up to the medium pacers and this proved very effective. Sam Carson opened the batting and together with James Druce formed a formidable opening left and right hand combination. Sain impressed with his total commitment w rraining and play. James Druce played with style and grace. His fielding was also a very positive feature of his game. Jamie Wills moved into the important first drop position at the start of the season. Like the openers, he was. technically correct and he played with considerable verve. Unfortunately, just when he seemed to have the opposition at his mercy he would play a rash shot and get out. His fielding in the covers was exceptional. Hugh Roxburgh gave the middle order considerable substance defending his wicket resolutely and playing a number of crucial innings for the team. Justin FitzherbertSmith is one of those players who is hard to keep out of the game. Whether it be with his extraordinarily athletic fielding or fast bowling or heaving of the willow, he made a significant contribution somewhere in every game. James 1 Pie 1 Hutchinson proved to be our most effective bowler with his slow medium pacers. Deadly accurate and at a good length he proved to be the match of many. His batting was also useful and on one occasion a mighty six against Riverview saved the day. Will Hunt worked an effective offspin double with Doug MacPhillamy and they both bowled with control and economy. Michael Parker proved to be a very effective left arm quick, taking the ball away from the right hand batsman. His fielding was exceptional and a whirlwind 40 in the last game showed his ability with the bat. George Keatinge showed promise earlier in the season but a shoulder injury hampered his progress in Term I. He showed the ability to bowl at genuine pace in Term IV. Tim Smith came back from the Seconds at the start of Term I and proved to be our most pment strike force. Some of the highlights of the season included a swashbuckling 69 in a trial game against Grammar from justin 130

131 FitzherbertSmith which included 13 fours and 1 six. A patient 44 not out from Hugh Roxburgh in a low scoring game against Sco<S Third XI that enabled victory. * A superb 6/11 performance against High from Justin FitzherbertSmith was followed up by an innings of 36 n.o. Hugh Roxburgh (45") and Jamie Wills (34) also made solid comriburions. 'Pie' Hutchinson demolished the High second innings with a superb display of swing bowling which netted him the figures of 6/15. Tim Smith (34) and Justin FitzherberrSmith (43) rescued the team from a perilous 5/56 to a creditable score of 8/142 against St Josephs. Will Hunt (3/17) and 'Pie' Hutchinson (3/11) destroyed the Kings innings. This was followed up by a superb opening partnership of 67 from James Druce (38) and Sam Carson (29) to set up a win. An aggressive and controlled spell of pace from Tim Smith (4/6) largely caused the downfall of Riverview for 81. In reply, Sam Carson (33) helped set up the win but after a middle order collapse (from 1/64 to 8/69) 'Pie' Hutchinson (11 n.o.) and Doug MacPhillamy (5) kept cool heads to ensure the win. 168 XI A] Lee (C), JM Buchan, H Burton Taylor, NA Chiew, Nj Colyer, RA Fox, MJ Harrington, j R Hodges, EJ Jamison, T] Noad, AV Terracini, AW Wade St Josephs was the first opponent after from the summer holidays. The scheduled one day march was contested on a fair pitch and in fine weather. Shore sent Joeys in to bat but the new ball failed to claim a wicket. Jamison then took two wickets in a tight spell after which joeys went into cruise conuol. The runs began to rise until Terracini (3/10) and Hodges (4/21) slowed things down. This caused the beginning of the end for ]oeys who lost their last six wickets for one run. This was a great comeback but Shore still had to chase the rough total of 128. The run chase began disastrously with Noad being run out in the first over, and things never really recovered thereafter. Shore was given a glimpse of hope with Jamison (15) and Lee (34) forming a partnership at the tail, but in the end fell short by 23 runs. Against Kings, the first day was washed out so Shore had to s~ttle for another one-day battle. Shore was sent into bat on a pitch that looked flat. Wade and Harrington (33) got Shore off to a perfect start with a SO partnership with some aggressive yet sensible batting. After Harrington was out, the run rate slowed bur by the end of the innings Shore had set a defendable total of 142 with Wade not out on a well-deserved 55. Shore went into field with a good chance but due to some wayward bowling and sometimes mediocre fielding still lost the game with one over remaining. After two close losses the Shore 16Bs needed a victory to boost their confidence. After another washed out day one, Shore had ro battle against Riverview in a one dayer; On a pitch that had plenty in it for the fast bowlers, Hodges claimed an early wicket and did not look back. Shore bowled with great accuracy and a much-improved effort in the field to dismiss Riverview for 107. Keatinge (3/20) and Terracini (4/30) 131

132 were the pick of the bowlers. It was not going to be easy to achieve the small total against a tough Riverview side but Shore got off to a great start due to some disciplined batting from the top order, mainly Wade (44), Burton-Taylor (15) and Noad (15). With this solid start and some lusty hitting from Lee (24 n.o.) Shore cruised to a well-deserved win. The last game of the year was against Grammar and it was our first two-day match. Shore never let off the pressure against their opposition. Grammar batted first. Shore's four fast bowlers did the damage and were well backed up with another good effort in the field. Hodges and Fox were the main destroyers to dismiss Grammar for a modest 70 runs. With two hours left in the day Shore went into bar. Again Shore 1 S innings was characterised by intelligent and also aggressive batting so that we ended the day at 6/136. Wade was again solid at 44 n.o. and day two came with Shore having an outright victory on their minds. Wade finished off a very consistent season with 77 n.o. and Shore had an overall lead of 115, with three hours left to play. Grammar were sent into bat and lasted less than an hour in a remarkable result. Shore dismissed Grammar for 28 after having them 9/18. Fox bowled an unplayable spell of swing bowling to finish with 5/10. This was a well-deserved end for all the players, who showed great enthusiasm and character with all of them showing immense improvement as the season went on. Adam Lee was an influential captain who had the utmost respect from all the team, and did a great job leading the Shore 16Bs. 16C XI J Buchan, S Edwards, H Eriksson, W Frew, G Henderson, W Kierath, M Lark, P Lynar (C), E Robinson, C Schmidt, B Sinclair, W Smiles, A Vincem The 1999 season was a very enjoyable one for all involved with the 16C team which had seven wins and three losses. The season began with a victory over Grammar, who batted first and scored 74. This was mainly due to the line and length bowling of Mike Lark who had the impressive figures of 5/9 off 3 overs. Shore easily overcame the small target with John Buchan scoring a quickfire 37. 'T'he next rest for Shore was against a tough Joeys team who scored an. impressive 221. Shore began the ru~ chase well with Shore at 6/113 and Hugh Eriksson on 55 n.o. when rain stopped play-the end result a drawn match. Our third game was against Newington where we chased (and passed) a modest total of 130 easily with Will Smiles (29) and Ed Robinson (29) the highest run scorers. In the following game against Kings, Ed Robinson again shone with a magnificent 60 and with some big hiuing from Will Kierath (26) Shore were able to post a respectable score of 187. In reply Kings had no answer to great bowling by John Buchan 3/9, George Henderson 3/19 and Stuart Edwards 3/7, and were bowled out for 34. The game against Sydney High saw possibly the best piece of bowling for the season with George Henderson taking the amazing figures of 7/23, including a spell of 715 off 26 balls. This swung the march in favour of the Shore team who 132

137 were narrow victors by three runs. In the following two matches Shore were overcome by better tea1:ns on the day, they being Riverview 154 v. 121 and Joeys 182 v Good innings in these games were by John Buchan with 32 and Andrew Vincent 34 which included 4 SIXeS. After two losses the team needed a boost and this came in the form of an excellent vicwry over Knox by 58 runs. Top scorers were Mike Lark with 58 and Pete Lynar with 35. After a solid batting performance, including 61 by Pete Lynar and 48 by Ed Robinson, Shore comfortably defeated Newington for the second time this season. Stuart Edwards was impressive in bowling, taking 4/20 to push the opposition out of the game. With a sixth wicket partnership of 118 between Pete Lynar (87) and Will Kierath ( 44 ), we were able to post an imposing first score of 244, giving the Grammar team little chance. The Grammar chase was poor with sundries top scoring, and performances by Mike Lark 3/10 and John Buchan 3/25 ensured an early finish. A very close and hard fought match ended the season with Newington winning by seven runs, although another impressive bowling performance by George Henderson (4/10) almost won the game. Thanks must go to Pete Lynar for captaining the team and to Mr David Hennessey for coaching the team so well and teaching them many new skills. Special thanks must also go to the many parents who scored and supported the team throughout the season, and especially to the wonderful scorer, Mr Trevor Eriksson. 160 XI J Whale (C), R Kenzie (VC), 0 Buttenshaw, S Harley, A Irving, C Knox, E Lightfoot, S Purcell, A Savage, T Whiteway, M Young, G Parker Joel Whale captained the team with authority, and was assisted in selections, tactics and general administration by Richard Kenzie, without whom the season would not have run so smoothly. The year began with two wins against Knox. Against their 16C side, Duncan Buttenshaw scored 23 runs, and Sam Purcell took two wickets for seven. Two weeks later, came another win, against Knox's 160. Ed Lightfoot starred with 27 runs and three wickets for 13. After two weeks without a match, the team travelled to Gowan Brae, where they batted well (Buttenshaw and Andrew Savage scoring 37 each); but they lost to a very strong Kings 16C batting side, despite Tim Whiteway's four wickets for seven. In the final match of the season against the Kings D team the next week, Shore batted very well scoring 7/153, including 43 runs by Knox, 27 by Buttenshaw and 25 by Savage. However, Kings' Ds were also a strong batting side and passed this score with only four wickets down, three of them captured by Ed Lightfoot. The aim for the season was to increase the enjoyability of the game for the players through improved skills and being adventurous. The side developed some hard-hitting batsmen in Andrew Irving, Ed Lightfoot and Michael Young. It was also pleasing to see the improvement in the bauing of Sam Harley, Richard Kenzie, Charlie Knox and Sam Purcell. 137

138 On the bowling side, Sam Harley could usually break up stubborn partnerships with his slowish deliveries while Andy Irving, Joel Whale and Ed Lightfoot provided real pace. Sam Purcell and Tim Whiteway also bowled effectively, and Michael Young was always anxious to demonstrate his skill with the ball. Duncan Buttenshaw also developed well. There were some spectacular run outs and catches in the field, and most of the team were enthusiastic fieldsmen. This was a ream notable for the good nature of its players, and they were equally as sportsmanlike in defeat as in victory. ISA XI RE Butchatsky, AGJ Dodds, BRH Fisher, ORH Fisher (C), RG Goninan, TO Millar, 00 Oberg, JPD Roberts, TH Shore, AJ Smith, OA Walton, AJG Wilson The!SA XI enjoyed a very successful cricket season. The team is made up of many natural cricketers who worked hard to improve their scandard of play while still enjoying the game. This made for a very enjoyable season. Opening the batting were Oscar Oberg and Andrew Smith who were capable of big scores and have the ability to concentrate for long periods. Oscar is a dedicated player who never gave his wicket away cheaply. He can play shots on both sides of the wicket and as the season progressed he improved his running between the wickets. He is also a valuable bowler ofteri snaring that crucial wicker. Andrew is a very talented batsman. A powerful striker of the ball with a sound defensive technique, he has the attributes to reach the top in this game. He proved to be a very good first change pace bowler. Dylan Fisher was the captain and No. 3 batsman who attacked at every opportunity and was encouraging at all times. His batting has the hallmarks of greatness as he has a good defence and the ability to build an innings. However Dylan remained his own greatest critic and, as he regains his confidence, will blossom as a batsman. David Millar was the No. 4 and was a very consistent member of the team with an acute knowledge of the game. He was never flustered and has the ability to compile runs in a methodical manner. His wicket keeping was excellent and he provided much encouragement to the bowlers. James Roberts, David Walton and Tim Shore were the middle order batsmen and all played major roles in the team's success. James is a very gifted cricketer who can bat, bowl and field with distinction. He had the ability to accelerate the scoring rate and was responsible for many big scores. David was the live wire of the team. Whether batting or fielding he was always energetic and inspirational and will produce many big scores when he curbs his nerves. In full flight he was a joy to watch and his fielding saved many runs. Tim was a capable batsman who plays within his limitations and is aware of the value of a quick single. Probably the most improved fieldsman, he worked tirelessly on his catching and ground fielding. Andrew Wilson also played in a number of matches as a top or middle order batsman and took a number of fine catches at the wicket. The bowlers consisted of Ralph 138

139 Goninan, Ben Fisher, Alex Dodds and Robert Butchatsky. These boys always gave their all to the team and should be pleased with their season. Ralph was a very consistent lower order batsman while his fast bowling troubled most batsmen with its movement and surprising bounce. Ben was the strike bowler of the team with his left arm spin. He has a sharp brain, troubling all batsmen and never losing a contest. Alex is a very good left arm pace bowler who constantly troubled the opposition. He provided a very good start for the team on all occasions and his humour sparked the team during tight moments. Rob was the express bowler of the team. He has the potential to desuoy opposition, as he did against Kings, but tends to tighten up in a match. Possessing a smooth run to the wicket Rob generates great pace and movement. The ISA XI are to be congratulated on a fine season. The boys' co-operation at training, their willingness to improve, and their support for the captain all concributed to an enjoyable year. There is much potential her:e and it will be interesting to watch these boys achieve their potential and maintain Shore's cricketing reputation in the GPS. ISB XI JC Bachmann, KP Cooper, TN Coventry, BM Gammans, AR Gardner (C), JJ Gourley, RL Gulson, AJE Hawkins, JR Hercus, AR Lees, AR Smyth-Kirk, ASM Tan, AJG Wilson The team had a very successful season, winning 10 games and losing two. One of the wins was an outright against Grammar, reversing Shore's loss in the first game of the season. The second game was against Scots where john Bachmann scored a quick fire 65. This allowed the building of an unbeatable 185 aagainst which Scots could only manage 134 (Gourley 3/21). Probably the most exciting game of the season was played the following week against St Josephs. Chasing a score of 192 Shore were in real trouble at 5/48 until an excellent controlled innings of 46 from Tim Coventry, and a powerful big hitting innings of 66 n.o: from. Andrew Smyth-Kirk took Shore to an impressive 212. The highlight of the following game against Newington was Andrew Tan's bowling figures of 6/4. Shore's batsmen also played well with Anthony Hawkins and Angus Gardner scoring 55 and 50 (re<.) respectively. The final result was Shore 171 def. Newington 101. All the batsmen contributed well to the total of 157 against Kings in the next game. The bowlers then did the rest by bowling the opposition out for 80; (Hawkins 33, Gourley 24, Gammans 24 ret., Gardner 22 ret., Gourley 3/18). There was a very comfortable win the following week against High. Alex Lees' accurate bowling had the High team in all sorts of trouble. His figures of 4/2 helped keep their score down to a mediocre 52 before Shore went into bat with a reverse batting order and scored a respec<able 137; (Smyth-Kirk 38, Gammans 27 n.o.). The last game before the Christmas break was against Riverview where the team had an easy win 151 to 131; (Gardner 38 ret., Gammans 27 ret., Hawkins 25). Our first game after the holiday break was also against Riverview. 139

140 This time their bowlers ripped through the team's batting with 6 of Shore's batsmen scoring 'ducks'. The score of 105 was nor going w be enough to win the game but Shore's bowlers nearly rescued the team when they had the opposition in trouble at 8/61. However one of their batsmen scored an unbeaten 68 to carry their t'eam to victory. The following week revenge was taken on Riverview's 'C' team, with an easy victory 143 to 84; (Wilson 32, Bachmann 4/3). The last three games saw easy wins. First Shore 172 def Newington 71 (Wilson 35 ret., Gourley 4/14). Then we scored 195 to defeat Grammar 77 & 84 outright (Gardner 56 n.o., Gammans 37, Gulson 4/20, Coventry 3/8, Smyth/Kirk 3/14, Cooper 3/14). Finally Shore made 254 to defeat High 96 (Gourley 51 ret., Bachmann 40). The team had a very successful season winning more games than any other school The captain, Angus Gardner, whose enthusiasm and love for the game were infeccious, ably led the ream.. All boys contributed in some way to the success of the season. ISC XI ACJ Bowden, DAW Brown, JG Burke, GDL Burns, ARB Chiew, GS Gatehouse, CPW Garfield, JBM Greenwood (C), JR Hercus, AD Hopkins, AG Kortt, JH Kvisle, TJC Ozinga, SC Sproule, BCF Wong The!SC XI had a most successful season. Game one saw a crushing victory over Riverview. Runs flowed heavily in Shore 1 S innings as Anthony Hawkins (42), James Greenwood (25), Alex Kortt (47), Geoff Gatehouse (44) and Alex Chiew (30 n.o.) amassed a huge total of 6 for 236. In response, Riverview could only tally 77, with Rob Gulson (4/8), Anthony Hawkins (3/6) and Tristan Ozinga (2/12) doing the damage. Rob and Anthony were immediately promoted to the ISBs. Easy Super 8 vtctones over Grammar, Newington and Kings occurred before another 4hr game saw Barker College!60s restricted to 109 by Tristan Ozinga (3/16), Alex Chiew (2/7) and Jeremy Burke (2/21). Shore lost two early wickets before a big stand between Alex Kortt (SO ret.) and James Greenwood (36 ret.) ensured an easy victory. Shore set Trinity the formidable target of 192 to win at Concord, Alex Chiew (48) and David Brown (38) leading the way. Trinity replied strongly with a 65 run opening stand before Shore skipper James Greenwood shrewdly turned to spinners David Brown (2/26) and Jeremy Burke (2/32). Speedster Andrew Hopkins (2/21) then completed the job, to ensure a 19-run vicrory. The last game before Christmas saw another convincing win. Riverview scored an even 100 after reaching 4 for 77. Jeremy Burke (3/13) and Bradley Wong (3/16) induced the collapse. Shore passed 100 with nine wickets in hand, Alex Kortt (53 retired) and Alex Chiew (18) opening with 69 and David Brown (24 ret.) and Chris Garfield (22 ret.) finishing the job. Wet weather restricted training and fitness after Christmas and hence, despite reducing St Josephs ISBs to 2 for 2, Shore allowed them to recover to reach 8 for 198 in 36 overs. Andrew Hopkins 140

141 (2/8) and Stuart Sproule (2/46) bowled well but failed to stop their top scorer who amassed 80. Shore's top three did well in reply, openers Alex Chiew (34) and Graeme Burns (30) adding 49, and first drop Alex Kortt continuing the good work with 46. Sadly, the later batsmen struggled against good spin bowling and Shore ended up 49 runs short. A single opposing batsmen did well in the next match, scoring 107 of Knox 1 s 8 for 209. Jono Hercus (2/18), Chris Garfield (2/32) and Andrew Hopkins (2/45) bowled well but not well enough to stop Knox. Graeme Burns started our reply with two big sixes in the first over but quick wickets saw us staggering at 8 for 50 before bowling stars Hopkins (30) and Hcrcus (21) added a sterling 53. Shore still fell 99 runs short. 'f'he tables finally turned against Newington College when batting first Shore amassed 8 for 214 with Alex Kortt and James Greenwood both scoring 52 (ret.), Graeme Burns another 30 and jono Hercus another 21. Newington only reached 65 with all rounder Hercus taking 3 for 7 from 6 overs. Chris Garfield (2/18) had started the rot and Alex Chiew (2/0) finished it. Sydney Grammar were restricted to 76 with Andrew Hopkins (3/8) doing the early damage and Graeme Burns (4/12) completing the rout. Perhaps unwisely, Shore reversed its batting order and slumped to 4 for 24 before Jason Kvisle (20) and James Greenwood (14) created a vital partnership. Hopkins (14 ret.) and Hercus (12 ret.) completed the formalities. The final game was a great challenge as Shore faced Newington 15Bs. Steady batting and a captain's innings from James Greenwood (34) saw Shore reach 9 for 142 in 36 overs. Other good contributions came from Geoff Gatehouse (19), Alex Kortt (16), Andrew Hopkins (IS) and Jono Hercus (13). Newington followed our recent example of sending in the bowlers first and slumping, in this case to 5 for 21. Superb fielding from Geoff Gatehouse, Alex Korrt, Graeme Burns, Anthony Bowden, Alex Chiew and in fact the whole team backed up the fine bowling from Andrew Hopkins (2/29), Jono Hercus (2/2) and the entire arrack as Newingron fell for 92. Every player contributed during the season but the leading contribution with the bat came from Alex Kom whose 283 runs in 4hr games came at a superb average of 56.6 (counting "retiredsn as 11 not outs"). Openers Alex Chiew and Graeme Burns and all rounder Andrew Hopkins also exceeded 100 runs for the season. Andrew led the bowling with 13 wickets in 4hr games at 13 runs each. Jono Hercus was the best of the spinners with eight wickets at eight runs each, while Alex Chiew was the most economical bowler, taking seven wickets for a mere 7.43 runs apiece. Over and above these contributions was James Greenwood who kept wicket tidily and aggressively throughout the season and scored 181. To him, and his highly supportive parents (as well as to all other faithful supporters), goes much of the credit for a memorable season. 141

142 14A XI JJ Baker (C), RPE Blanch (WK), CWS Ching, NT Ocbney, OW French, TI Geddes, DCE Gill, NBS Hale, MJJ Hamilton, AM Low, MJ Paull, SB Tilbury, BC Weber At the end of the previous season the 13As' coach, Mr Lendrum, predicted that this team could be suited to the two-day version of the game. He was right. The team did not lose one two-day game all season, and came close co winning two of them outright. There were few changes to the side throughout the season. Daniel French moved up from (he Bs to prove himself a steady opening batsman. Matthew Paull and Scott Tilbury were also competing for an opening bowler's position. However a major benefit of the consistency was the building of ream spirit. The ream's success was based on a solid and consistent barring line-up, a balanced armck and an improvement in their fielding. Some of the individual achievements worth noting were; Ben Weber scored 82 and 99 against Grammar and High respectively. Chris Ching (100) and Michael Hamilton (97) shared a 150 run partnership against Scots. Ben Weber (99) also shared a 150 run partnership with Daniel French (54), this time against High. Against G(ammar Jarrod Baker scored an excellent team-building innings of 73. In the bowling department the highlight of the season was Travis Geddes (leg spin) 7 for 32 against Sydney Grammar in the last game of the season. Three of these wickets were caught and bowled, and two of them fell in the last over and one of them the last ball of the game. Chris Ching showed his class with fiv.e wicket hauls against Scots and Newington. He consistently troubled the opposition's batsmen throughout the season. But the two vast improvers in the fast bowling stakes were Alex Low and David Gill. Alex showed he had genuine pace, and Oavid 1 s tight left arm bowling can only get better. All boys really improved their fielding throughout the season. Rob Blanch (the team's wicker keeper) was the keenest of them all. Other real improvers were Nick Hale (who had no luck with the bat this season), David Gill and Michael Hamilton. This high standard of fielding saw many run outs from direct hits. The team suffered two losses throughout the season, both in one-day games. Against a strong and committed Josephs the batsmen for the only time all season suffered collapse. The game against Riverview was turned into a one-day game due to the first week being washed our. Riverview are undoubtedly the form team in this age group, and the boys pushed them to the limit. In the end we fell just 20 runs short. All in all it was a most enjoyable season. A big thank-you to all the parents who helped score, support and umpire the games and thanks to Mr Weber for scoring, and Mr Baker, Mr Hale and Mr Hamilton for umpiring. 148 XI OS Campbell, NT Oebney, BP Fletcher, JA Gayleard, AJ Hopkins, AG Harley, AJ Kraefft (C), TE Manning, MJ Paull, JPW Ridout, JP Russell-Cook, NJ Trumbull. Also played: OW French SB Tilbury 142

143 The season for the 148 cricket team was a success. Playing 13 games, eight were won, four were lost, and one against Joeys was an unbelievable tied match. The overall ability of the boys resulted 1n the season 1 s success. Evidence of this was the fact that if batting first, the allocated overs were completed with wickets usually in hand. This meant that not all the boys batted each week so a rotation of the order was employed. The bowling department was similar except that James Ridout, Scot Tilbury and Tim Manning were usually employed as strike bowlers. All the other boys could be confidently called on to follow up the openers. Wicket-Keeper Jack Gayleard improved continually over the season. Rarely were byes recorded and an alertness for a stumping or snappy runout were usually recorded if the batsman was short of his ground. Andrew Kraefft was the appointed captain and the boys rotated the vice captaincy. This move exposed some quality backup to the captain with some innovative moves and tactics during those allowable 36 overs. It shows that the traditional game of cricket is progressing with the younger minds willing to be adventurous and daring. Many opposition reams were pur under pressure by our snappy fielding and of the four matches lost, it was only a handful of runs that made the difference. Quite a few of the boys were able to score 50 runs in an innings Bowling also saw boys on hat tricks but unfortunately none ever came to fruition. Once again plenty of experience in pressure was gained. It is hard to single out personal achievements because during the season there were many. A couple of the boys had a chance to play in the 'A' side. The boys that came down displayed excellent sportsmanship and the team spirit continued resulting 1n everybody enjoying their cricket. Between the 14A and B sides, the school has some exciting talent to fill positions in the First and Second elevens in the years ahead. 14C XI JWB Carroll, CB Coombes, DR Corbett, MP Costello, CG Falloon, AJC Hogan, DB Hovey, EJ Osbourne, TJ Page, DG Pope, PC Sutherland, CD Yeates, Also played: GW Davies, ASF Bennett The 14C XI had a very successful season which was truly a team effort. Several boys had the opportunity to captain the side and each did the job very well, giving a chance to every player ro bowl, and making sensible fielding changes. The batting order was interchangeable as. all players demonstrated abilities to fill any position. Riverview proved to be our only real nemesis beating us on two occasions. This was mainly due ta their exceptional opening bowling. All other games were very convmcmg wms. Batting honours were shared among the entire team. Gareth Davies was making good progress with his batting and bowling, but unfortunately an accident saw him miss most of the games this year. Chris Coombes had several fine innings, batting aggressively to score well in nearly all innings, retiring after scoring 50 on several occasions. Tom Page was also very efficient in scormg 143

144 runs, playing many powerful shots. David Hovey scored a good half century against Newington playing many excellent drives. Matthew Costello and Chris Yeates both displayed good form with the bat in several matches. Carl Falloon was very reliable and improved his batting considerably over the season. Peter Sutherland and David Corbett were both steady batsmen and contributed well on a number of occasions. David Pope and Andrew Hogan improved their batting as did Eddie Osbourne and James Carroll, particularly in the more difficult games. The team had a diverse bowling attack, with every boy having his own particular skills. The wicket keepers, James Carroll and Chris Coombes, would both bowl in most games, sharing the wicket keeping duties. David Pope, Eddie Osbourne, Chris Yeates, Andrew Hogan and Matthew Costello all got movement of the ball when they bowled. David Hovey and Carl Falloon both bowled good line and length, using the seam well, keeping runs to a minimum and Peter Sutherland and Tom Page could bowl both medium pace and orthodox spin. Both boys had good success, with Tom showing much promise as an orthodox spin bowler. David Corbett 1 s leg spin had nice bounce and turn resulting in numerous wickets over the season. Overall the season was a very good one. All players had a real chance to contribute and develop their skills. This will come, providing they are prepared to work at their uaining, correcting weaknesses and developing their strengths. 140 XI T J Allen, AS F Bennett, G R Cartwright, J I Dreverman, T FitzherbertSmith, C E Jordan-Hawkins, M C Kennett, T R Moore, W J Palioca, N C Rayment, R T K Sholl Also Played: S W Bagnall This report relates to the team 1 s performance in lerm I of 1999, when the writer became associated with them. The team had played sevens cricket in Term IV of 1998, but the score sheets do not survive. Based on their work in 1999, they must have been a fair match for most other teams that came their way. In rain-affected 1999, the ream played four times only, for three wins and a loss. They won narrowly against Riverview in their first game, and were beaten easily in a return encounter. They easily dominated Newington and Grammar. They were an all-round team, with between eight and II bowlers used in each game. Wicket keeping duties were split between Richard Sholl and Matt Kennett, and the team displayed a strength in batting which allowed any order to be used to give everyone a chance to participate despite the small number of games played. Nick Rayment was perhaps the most stylish batsman, but Richard Sholl had a good line in cuts and pulls, and Tristan FitzherbertSmith was a batsman of some violence, with 42 n.o. against Newington, and 51 against Grammar, as well as taking 3/12 against Newington. Nick Rayment was most commonly captain, but he was prepared to let others take a turn, and the team was at all times well led, well disciplined, good- 144

145 humoured, supportive of each other and full of enthusiasm. A happy season, unfortunately inhibited a little by rain and, on one occasion, by the lack of an opponent. 14E XI MWG Benson, JGH Brown, AP Clinton, AJ Dee, TJ Fi<Zpatrick, TW Freeman, MP Hodgkinson (C), SP Kirkland, TP Lawrence, SA Lindley, HR Noble, EW Stearn Also Played: SW Bagnall, APP Brown, EC Matthews This season saw the introduction of the Super 8s series into GPS cricket for the first half of the season, before a retllrn to regular cricket in Term I this year. In the Super 8s, the competition was fierce with a high scoring rate. Shore won against Grammar, but was beaten by stronger Riverview and Kings teams, although the final scores differed in most cases only by a few runs. The most successful batsmen during this series were Ed Matthews, Scott Bagnall and Murrough Benson, who reached the compulsory retirement scores. Best bowling figures were Winston Stearn (4/8), Scott Bagnall (2/1), l'bm Freeman (2/1) and Scott Lindley (3/13), given that each can only bowl two overs in the game. The return to regular cricket was a welcome change, although the first match was against a fired up Joeys team who won quite convincingly. After some serious training, it was off to Kings where unfortunately, Shore lost by one run, Benson making an impressive 46 runs n.o. and Stearn taking three wickets for 12 runs. The following week saw a rematch against the same team, but the result was more in their favour this time. Angus Clinton bowled with devastating power, three maiden overs in a row and ultimately taking two wickets for 10 runs. The second last game of the season was again at Joeys, this time with a much closer score (Shore lost by four runs). A greatly improved Tim Fitzpatrick made a fine 51 runs in a profitable partnership with Michael Hodgkinson before being caught, while Scott Kirkland took three wickers for only six runs. The final match against Newington proved to be quite an easy vicrory for Shore (Kirkland 3/4, Clinton 2/3 and 31 runs, Stearn 2/1.) All of the players developed their skills during the season,, with some coming up from the Fs and others being promoted to the Os. Alexander Dee, Tom Freeman and 'TOm Lawrence found form with bowling as the season progressed. James Brown deserves special mention for being the most determined fieldsman and was able to chase down most balls to keep the opposition run rate to a minimum, while Hamish Noble with accurate throwing, had a similar effect. As captain and wicket keeper, Michael Hodgkinson did a fine job, developing his own talents, and at the same time, motivating and organising the team. He was very capably supported by vice captain Tom Freeman. A fine effort. This was a rewarding and enjoyable season. Once again the support from the parents was much appreciaced and the boys are wished success in future seasons. 145

146 14F XI 13A XI AA Clarke, NAP Conomos, OJ Forward, OJ Gunst, JJ Henderson, CR Hutchinson, BJ Lewis, CD O'Niell, NR Payne, FCW Rourke, LP Smirh, NAJ Turner The 14F cricker team played a number of internal marches in order to improve their skills as individuals and as a team. The training sessions were mosdy skill based, aimed to develop and fine rune the boys' abilities. The games were used to emphasise the tmporrance of concentration whether in the field, bowling or barring. Throughout the season there were some dramatic improvements as well as gradual ones. A number of boys whose bowling ability was of serious concern displayed a tremendous improvement in their line, length and direction. The batting was also relatively successful however more work is needed on the defensive strokes. The batting of David Gunst, Fergus Rourke, Nick Conomos, Chris O'Niell, Angus Clarke, and Ben Lewis was characterised by hard work in order to improve. David Forward~ Jeremy Henderson, Nick Turner and Nick Payne showed some great bowling improvements. Charlie Hutchinson and Lincoln Smith improved as wicket keepers and were also assisted by Nick Conomos and David Gunst. Angus Clarke persevered with spin bowling and Fergus Rourke continued to develop his bowling ability. The major feature of the majority of the boys was their enthusiasm for the training sessions and the games. S Parris, J Rhodes, 0 Bragg, E Ran ken, J Bourke, S Sloane, A Baker (C), J Knighr, S Fisher, B Ronald, J Kerr, A Press, J Knight, J Collins The 1999 season proved to be a very exciting one for the team. Moulding a group of cricketers from different schools with different backgrounds is never easy and yet the team ended the very short season having learnt some great lessons and feeling very unified. Aidan Baker led with distinction and was able to command the other boys' respect very effecrively. In terms of results the team won two games and lost three games and despite losing two of the games in tight, nerveracking finishes, the boys showed grear character and never gave an inch. Fielding is a crucial part of the short game and Sam Parris was inspirational in his example. Many of his arracking effons were reminiscent of Jonty Rhodes. Sam Fisher did some grear housekeeping behind rhe stumps and was able ro srand up ro rhe beguiling offspin of Daniel Bragg. Our bowling attack was very disciplined and rhis enabled Aidan to ser good fields. Ewan Ranken and Ben Ronald proved ro be a formidable opening partnership especially on the damp wickets. They were well backed up by rhe seam attack of Jonarhan Kerr (before his injury), Jusrin Bourke (who may become a very useful left arm orthodox), Andrew Press and James Knighr. Daniel Bragg and Sam Sloane bowled some good spells of gende offspin. Joe Collins had a tremendous 146

147 season with the bat scoring three fifties and showing great patience. He was well backed up by Aidan Baker, Sam Sloane and James Knight at the top of the order as well as a host of all-rounders in the middle and lower order. The highlight of the season was the last ball loss to St Josephs in the first game. It was certainly an exciting beginning! The biggest weakness in the team was its inability to score runs quickly. The boys will really appreciate the opportunity next season to build an innings and to express themselves in more areas of the game. They all enjoyed themselves and look forward to the challenges of the season ahead. 138 XI OS Baker, AF Davidson, JW Hensley, ER Lee, TJ Lee, EB Loveday, SR McKendry, JGP Paske, MR Powell, WH Schmidt, MA Skipper (C), TCC Wills The 13B XI had a moderately successful season that started with three wins and finished with two losses. In the first game, reasonable bowling restricted SjC to 116 with Mike Powell picking up figures of 3/7. Joe Collins (49) provided the backbone of our innings and he was subsequendy promoted to the As. Angus Davidson (35) and Ed Loveday (24) lent good support and we passed the required total with a couple of overs to spare. Against TSC our wmngs was dominated by Sam Parris (79") and Sam Fisher (55) both of whom also earned promotion to rhe As. TSC fell 98 runs short in the run chase. Best of the bowlers were Will Schmidr (2/10) and Tom Lee (2/12). In the Newington match a sound effort in the field saw the opposition dismissed for 59 wirh Tom Lee raking 3/10, Will Schmidt 2/8 and James Hensley 2/14. In rhe pursuit of victory Shore struggled ro 6/14 before a fine partnership berween Will Schmidr (47 ) and James Hensley (32') saw rhe team through. In the last two matches, fielding was poor and the bowling was wayward. The exception to this was Will Schmidt who rook 4/19 against SGS. In any case, Shore ended up chasing rargets which were 30 or 40 runs higher rhan they should have been. The barring bad been rather brirrle in the top order and both of these targets proved to be too high. There were, however, some good innings played with Angus Davidson making 45 against SGS and then he and "lorn Lee making 43 and 33" respectively, against SHS bur in both cases Shore fell short by a handful of runs. Overall, the season was enjoyable and hopefully some valuable lessons were learnt. The boys are very keen on their cricket but they need to develop and Improve their bauing and consistency in bowling. The fielding and catching were good at times and dreadful at times. Maintaining full concentration for a full innings is what is required. Well done to Michael Skipper who developed well as caprain and thank you to Mark Skipper and the other parents who scored and supported [he team. 147

148 IJC XI R W Bisley, N A Bradley, C J Burnell, P J Crawford, A 0 French, P J Henning, R L Hunt (C), H N Lynar, J C Manticas, A 0 Sutherland, C E Taperell, M W Vincent The 13Cs proved to be a very successful team winning four of the five games played. They had a very enjoyable season with the team spirit being a highlight. Every player was given the opportunity to share in the success. The team had talented batsmen and bowlers and demonstrated outstanding fielding, often with some sensational catching and run outs. The first game was against St Josephs. Shore went in to bat first and started very slowly, however strong batting from Robert Bisley (13) and Alex French (12) in the middle order enabled Shore to score a credible 74 runs total. Shore 1 S bowling was immediately on a good line and length with Henry Lynar bowling fast and accurately for figures of 4/0. All bowlers were very consistent and Sr Josephs were bowled out for 60 runs. The next game, against Kings, was called off due to wet weather. The following game was against Scots and the team was well prepared to take them on. The strong top and middle order batted well, leading the way to a competitive 170 runs. The star effort was by Josh Manticas who scored a quick and unbeaten 47, with 6 fours and 3 enormous sixes. As against Joeys our bowling was tight and on target with the last seven Scots wickets falling for three runs. Scots made the modest rota! of 43. Charles Taperell completely confused the Scots batsmen with his spin bowling and finished his spell with figures of 4/4. Our next game was aga1nsr Newingron at Northbridge and the ream was ready again for a big effort. Shore batted first and Charles Taperell produced a fine innings of 35 n.o. ably supported by Josh Manticas (20). This helped the, team to score another competitive coral of 152. Then it was our turn to take the ball and the team started well, picking up a wicket on the fourth ball of the innings. Newington were quickly all out at 87. Some of the great bowling came from Nick Bradley returning tidy figures of 2/5 and the team demonstrated some excellent catching and fielding. In the next game, _a,gainsr Grammar, it became evident that we were in for a wugh battle. Grammar set a good target of 136 runs and [he [earn knew tha[ its batting would be truly tested. The run chase S[arced fairly slowly wi[h Pe[er Crawford 16 and Chris Burnell 13 holding the batting together. However Grammar bowled very well and Shore was all OU[ for 70 runs. The final match was against High and Shore baned first and again scored a terrific total of 5 for 187. Josh Manticas 51 n.o. and Alex Sutherland 50 n.o. shared an awesome partnership of 119 OL,J.t of a total of 187. Again, bowling and fielding were excellem restric[ing High to jus[ 64 runs. Henry Lynar was spectacular with the figures of 3/8 and Michael Vincent bowled very tightly for 0/11. Special [hanks goes w our coach, Mr Robenson, who encouraged each one of [he team with [heir bowling and baning. 148

149 130 XI HB King(C), CD Adcock, GN Psaltis, AEG Spraggon, DC Stone, M) Armstrong, HR Drew, CRM Jansen, BC Smith, )A Kernaghan Also Played: PM Gaynor, MPW Garfield,.JL Meiklejohn, CV Barling An unbeaten 130 season starred with a resounding win over St Josephs. VVith only 94 w bowl at, Shore pulled off an amazing half-hour of cricket, bowling the opposition out for just 19 (including nine extras). The hero of the day, Adcock, took a remarkable 6/4. Next up were Newington, who were quickly dismissed for 66. Backed up by King and Jansen, Adcock found his line once more, raking four wickets for just five runs. The seeds of a solid opening duo were then laid with Psaltis and Armstrong playing rogether for the first time. The remainder of the runs were knocked off with relative ease by Spraggan and Kernaghan. Grammar were next but they were totally outclassed by the bowling of King, Drew, Smith and Psaltis, and the agile fielding of Stone, reaching a rota! of only 44. After Armstrong and Psaltis reached the target without loss, the umpires decided to give each boy a turn ro bat. Shore promptly smashed 211 off only 21 overs, for the loss of just four wickets, including a graceful 49 by Psaltis, and a hard hit 40 n.o. by Srone. Our final match was against a muchstrengthened Newington team, looking for revenge. Shore batted first, making a slightly disappointing 125. Psaltis again showed his obvious class with a cleanly struck 38. Bunting made sure the tail wagged, scoring a well-deserved 23. For the first time in the season our bowlers were put under pressure. Adcock and King bowled well once more gaining five wickets between them. However, it was the pace bowling of Drew that sank the hearts of the Newington faithful, taking a brilliant 4/8. All players should be congratulated on their efforts throughout the season. Behind the stumps, Spraggon showed great courage and promise. In the field Swne always looked alert. A special mention must go to Henry King, the skipper, who led the 13Ds to four wins fi-om four, and maintained a great atmosphere within the team. IJE XI The opening season for the under 13Es was rewarding in many ways. The team showed early on that there was plenty of natural talent with a resounding win over St joseph's College. However so resounding was this win the Os challenged us to a game. After bowling the Os out for a meagre 40 runs the coach began to fear that his ream of superstars was soon to be disrupted. The season then began to settle with a regular group of players for the remaining matches. The team certainly proved that they were much stronger in the field and however small the 13E total we always seemed able to bowl the opposition out for less. The captain, Hearhwood, started the season in devastating form with the ball and claimed many wickets. It was unforwnate that towards the end he was hampered by injury. This however did not weaken our bowling arrack and other hidden talents emerged. Mark johnson,. 149

150 and Ed Jenkins bamboozled batsmen with huge 'induckers', some of which had to be seen to be believed. Chris Gimson bowled wid1 good accuracy and pace whereas Morrison had everybody confused (including himself) in his ability to turn the ball in all directions without even looking where he was bowling. It seems fitting at this moment to mention the 13E wicket keeper, Chris Peponis who deserves great credit for keeping the extras so low in the games. He performed well behind the stumps and chipped in with some vital runs at number seven. Ed Cooper performed superbly at square leg, and his catches against Kings have to go down as one of the highlights of the season. Equally outstanding in the field was Angus 'Iownend at second slip who pulled off some blinding reaction catches. In the batting department the 13Es struggled to build partnerships: Ed Cooper opened the batting alongside James Meiklejohn. They both improved greatly and will surely score many runs in the furore. Patrick Gaynor 1 s elegant cover drives typified a splendid innings against High. The middle order of Peponis, Townend, Andrews and Morrison all chipped in with valuable runs at some stage. However they must all look to build an innings rather than going out to bat expecting to be able to hit every ball for four. Overall the season was a great success with all matches being won and played in the true spirit of the game. The increasing skill and cohesion of the tea m as the weeks passed was a pleasure to see. Much credit must be given to the captain, Harry Heathwood, who did his best to see that all players had a chance to shine every week. IJG & IJH XI Wet weather unfortunately caused the season to be very short, but both teams had opportunities to demonstrate skills and develop more, playing against teams from Grammar, Kings, Jocys and Riverview. They particularly benefited from the expertise of several fathers who attended most matches and assisted by umpiring and giving useful batting and bowling tips. The opportunity to be promoted to a higher team during the season existed and this motivated the boys to try very hard. Several players were successful in achieving this goal and more will have similar opportunities with additional practice. It was good to see each team develop into a more cohesive unit as the season progressed. Cricket is a great way to refine sportsmanship and team spirit. ISO

151 ROWING The 1999 Rowing season proved to be one of the most successful seasons for Shore with the GPS crews achieving the impossible 'Grand Slam' of six wins from six races at the Head of the River. Of the 21 crews rowing from the Boarshed this season, Shore crews won 143 races from the 162 races in which they competed. The Boatshed also retained the CD Taylor Shield for the Senior Pennant and the Doug Bowden Trophy for the Junior Pennam, retaining it for the eighteenth consecutive year. Shore is the first School ever to hold all of the eight rowing trophies at one time since the LC Robson Trophy was presented in 1968, and the only School to win any 'grand slams'. The First VIII rowed very consistently and while finishing a close second to Newington in the Head of the Parramatta in Term IV, they won all of their races at Schoolboy level in NSW during Term I including the NSW Championship Under 19 Vllls. The Head of the River First VIlis race was one of the most exciting finishes with no more than three seconds separating five crews with SOOm to go. It finished with Shore moving out to a halflength win with only three seconds covering the next four crews over the line. The First VIII also travelled to the Nationals held in Adelaide and recorded a close third placing in the final. The only setback was when the bow of the First VIII succumbed to glandular fever necessitating a change in all the GPS crews down to the Second IV, with four weeks to go. All of these crews handled the disruption extremely well and did not let this problem disadvantage them but served to make them more determined to succeed. The Second VIII, while being placed in the earlier races and then having co lose a key member co the First VIII, showed real determination to come back and. improve their boat speed, and start winning. At the Head of the River chey were more than a length down at the 1 OOOm mark where they increased their rate and power co row through the opposition and record a great win only eight seconds behind the winning First VIII time. The Fours had all been undefeated up to the St Ignatius Regatta a week before the GPS where tn rough conditions, two of the crews were beaten. This proved to be a great motivation for the whole Boatshed in that if they wanted to win at the Head of the River, they had to row their best and not underestimate the opposition. At the Head of the River the Fourth IV in particular moved co a one length lead by the first SOOm and were never headed thereby setting the example for the other crews to follow. The Third IV had to row a very determined race from being third early to lead by the 1 OOOm mark and were never headed. The First and Second Fours led all the way to record the fastest times for Fours since moving to the Olympic course. Four Junior Eights were boated this season and proved to be very successful. Going inco the final races at the St Ignatius Gold Cup Regatta, all of the crews were undefeated but the First and Third crews were placed second in some very close finishes in the finals. This lsi

152 group of boys will no doubt ensure that the GPS crews for next season will be very competitive. T'he Quad Fours were again very competitive and ensured that Shore retained the Junior Pennant by a record number of points. The six Form III crews dominated, only losing two races from 42 stans in a very competitive season. Several schools are working hard to improve their standard in the Juniors and this showed in some very close finishes. The Form II quads were not quite as successful as the senior quads bm the two top quads remained undefeated and the others remained very competitive. The Christmas and. final rowing camp was held at the Boatshed and was a great success. Our 'shed mother', Mrs Chris Alexander, and all of the parents helped in providing the healthy rowers with food and support that was such a great influence in achieving our CPS success. At the Coaches' Dinner on the last Wednesday evening before the Regatta, our World Champion Junior Coxed Four and. stern four from the 95 VIII, presented a named winning oar to d1e Boatshed to be mount~d on the wall. Our medical duo of Dr and Mrs Beattie again looked after the health of the GPS crews and did an excellent job in possibly their last season at the Boatshed after having their five boys row to GPS level over many years. A new VIII was purchased this season and named the Shore AssOt:iation by the Presidem of the Shore Association Mrs Yvonne Kimber. With the old timber SCEGS Association being scrapped, it was Association's continued support over many years with the purchase of equipment and boats. This season saw our retired and only outside coach, Mark 'Pops' Farmer return to help with the coaching of the successful Second VIII. His enthusiasm and support for the Boatshed was greatly appreciated. To complete the Rowing season, the stroke of the First VIII, Matthew Chave, was selected to row in the Australian Junior Coxed Four after winning the selection race at Penrith with two '98 leavers, Old Boys, Stewart Old and Cameron Oinnie. The fourth rower in the crew was an ex-st Ignatius First Vlll stroke. The crew raced at Plovdiv in Bulgaria at the World Junior Championships and won a bronze medal in a very close final. The Boatshed, after such a successful season, has been awarded the prestigious Beaufighter Award in 1999 in recognition of such an outstanding year. The Rowing Master Mr R Shirlaw, Dr J Beattie, Mrs C Alexander and Captain of Boars Matthew Chave received the award on behalf of the Boatshed at Assembly held in the Smith Auditorium. Our 'Grand Slam' in 1999 was a culmination of many years of hard work by the boys, coaches and parents to make Rowing such an enjoyable but disciplined and focused sport at Shore.

The first serious training involved a sculling camp held in the last week of the September holidays. On the Friday of this camp all scullers headed our to the Nepean River for a Skm time.trial. There were no real surprises and ~he four fastest placegetters were Matt Chave, Tim Wirth, Woody \Veilings and Stu Anderson. This was only the first selection and a more imporrant sculling regatta was then held on the Olympic Rowing Course on the 24th October. By far the best scullers inthese races were Chave and Wirth, a good 10 seconds in front of Wellings, with another six seconds back to Anderson, Making up the first eight places were also Alexander, Campbell, Sippe and Milne. This crew then uained on for the Head of the Parrarilatta River time trial, where they finished second, only five seconds behind Newington, who travelled over the distance in 14 minutes 11 seconds. This was the best performance by a Shore First VIII in this event for about ten years and augured well for a successful lat~er half of the season, The Second VIII also rowed very well finishing just 16 seconds behind the First VIII, just before the <he Christmas. vacation,. Angus Sippe 1 S crew raced in the PLC Regatta at Penrith, Unfortunately there were only a few starters and the race was most memorable for the big shipwreck in the middle of the race, where the VIII lost three quarters of a length. From there they recovered very well and went on to win by a length from Riverview. After the Christmas break, and af<er a week of sculling in the middle of January, a shorter time trial was held early on the Saturday morning on the Parramatta River. This was to determine rankings for the sculling regatta which took place on <he following Monday a< Penrith, on the new rowing course. In. the main race of the day Matt Chave, 157

158 Tim Wirth and Stuart Anderson all rowed very well to take out the first three places, followed by Wellings, Campbell, Simpson, Sippe, Milne and Alexander. Chave 1 s winning time was a very creditable 7 minutes 34 seconds, 6 seconds in front of Wirth. All scullers had two races and were in need of a long sleep once they got back to the Boatshed. After this regatta the fastest eight scullers made up the First VIII, but the crew did not perform very well with this combination against the Second VIII and some changes were made. At the end of the crials Chave was pm into the stroke seat and Alexander brought up into the crew. During this live-in part of rowing camp, on the Wednesday night, Mark Farmer gave a splendid speech on the history of Shore 1 s rowing camps. As school only went back on the Thursday of the following week, there were still three training days left before Term I officially commenced. Then on the day before school began, the new VIII The Shore Association arrived from New Zealand to go with the new 1 slicks 1 Croker oars. It was a typically hot summer 1 s day for the first regatta of Term 1 at SIRC on February 6th. As this was the State Championships Regatta and there were a lot of entries, everyone had a very early start with the heats of the U19 Eights at 8am. Shore had a relatively easy draw in the heat (High, Canberra Grammar and other second eights), and won comfortably with a controlled rate, although 1 Simmo 1 in all the excitement of his first big race had come off his seat in the first few strokes. The other heat was won by Riverview from Newington. Before the final at 2pm was the School First VIlis race at loam, but a number of crews had decided to withdraw from this race and to save themselves for the final of the State. Championship event. As in the heat, the crew had a relatively easy row in the clock race, winning by one length from Canberra Grammar in the time of six minutes. In the heat of the day (34 degrees) and less fresh than Riverview, Newington and St Josephs, Shore was drawn in a lane beside its two main rivals. Newington and Shore both started very well, but in the second 500 metres Newington made a big push, pulling out to two thirds of a length over Shore with Riverview half a length behind in third spot at the halfway mark. From there the school from North Sydney rowed through the Sranmore crew, while the Jesuits started to move up on Shore. It was a very exciting duel between Shore and Riverview in the last ZOO metres. Shore held on to win in a time of 5 minutes 56 seconds, half a second in front of Rivervie w, with Newington another length back in third position. After them came St Josephs in fourth position, followed by Canberra Grammar, High and Kings. This was a full strength regatta with all schools attending, a very pleasing and promising start to the racing season with three wins and three times around the six minute mark. The crew had found good rhythm in the race, even though their new boat was a little unstable. Next weekend on Iron Cove at the St Josephs Regatta, the crew won their heat easily and well and then had to sit around for a long time to wait for the final. In tail conditions in the final, Shore had a good start but was behind Riverview who had changed tactics from the week before, but at the 500 metre 158

159 mark they were back to level and after a big effort near half way, Shore was out to nearly three quarters of a length, which lead was extended to a length by the finish. During the week Tim Wirth had put in a very good performance in the sculling tiffie trial, beating all times over the last three seasons. Matt Chave, although second, also managed to break the record. IVlatt Chave was to feature in the records in the following week when he broke the record for the 2km ergometer - 6 minutes 12 seconds. This was quite a phenomenal performance, especially in the final minute where the rate came up to 40 strokes per minute and the speed increased to 1 minute 25 seconds per 500 metres. At the end of the week, racing took place in Hen and Chicken Bay for the High School Regatta. In the hears Shore and Riverview won their respective heats and were to battle it out in the final yet again. Chave's crew started very well, but were not able to settle and get into their good racing rhythm because of the washes and roily water. However they rated two to three points lower than Riverview and did enough to hold them our by 1.6 seconds, with St Josephs and Newington much further back. Things looked ominous when Sam Campbell was not able to row early on Thursday morning because the glands were swollen in his neck. To the great disappointment of everyone the results of the blood tests confirmed that it was in fact glandular fever and all of Sam's efforts on the dam near Cowra had now proved fruitless. Angus Collingwood Boots was then brought up from the Second VIII and rriallcd in a number of five minute pieces. With this makeshift crew they raced in the Newington regatta. Riverview did not appear at this regatta, so the racing was against High, Newington and St Josephs. High started very fast in Hen and Chicken Bay, but Shore managed to pass them with 500 metres to go to win from High by over three seconds with Newington a canvas further back. After the regatta the new boat was christened by Yvonne Kimber, the president of the Shore Association. In a full dress rehearsal for the Head of the River all crews competed in the PLC Regatta on the SIRC the following weekend. There was no need for heats for the School First Eights as there were only eight entries. Chave 1 s crew started very fast and soon went to a canvas advantage, surprising Newington and leaving Riverview and St Josephs well over a length behind at the 500 metre mark. Newington buckled at the halfway mark and never recovered from this early pressure, but Joeys had a strong middle thousand and came up to within half a length of Shore at the finish. The stroke did not recover very well between races and Shore was defeated for the only occaswn during the season by Newington in the Open Eights. Despite the illness they still managed to hold St Josephs off to third position. After a week of inactivity because Matt Chave was sick following the PLC regatta, the crew flew to Adelaide for the Australian Rowing Championships. Thirteen schools from four major cities were en(ered m the Australian Schoolboys' Eights race. There were Anglican Church Grammar from Brisbane; High, Grammar, Newington, Kings and Shore from Sydney; Xavier and Melbourne High from Melbourne; Prince Alfred College and St Peters from 159

160 the home city and Canberra Grammar from the ACT. Canberra Grammar won the first heat in 6 minmes 1 second, Shore won the second heat from Newington in 5.56 and Prince Alfred College won the third heat in Even though the conditions were quite rough in the tail conditions, Shore was very happy with their time. Then in the semi finals on Saturday Shore held out a fast finishing Xavier College to Win their semi slightly faster than Newington in the other semi. 'T'he crew in white from Sydney then felr confident about their final the next day, especially. as conditions were much smoother. However, in the final, Xavier and St Peters got om to a fast start, and when Shore tried to put pressure on them at halfway, they got the wobbles and failed to make an impression on the two southern Crews. The final result w3s Xavier, St Peters, Shore, Newingron, Can berra Grammar and Prince Alfred College. Shore ended up about two seconds behind the eventual winner, all the wiser from the experience of having raced on the Westlakes course. After an excellent training session on the Tuesday night it was Tim Wirth 1 s turn to give everyone a scare with sickness. Fortunately he had recovered by Friday and was fit to row in the Gold Cup. Unlike other years there were four good club crews entered in the main race at the Riverview Regatta and they did not allow any school crews to make the final. [n the semi final Shore had a tough race against Sydney (suoked by Alex Koch '96), St Josephs and Drummoyne composite, there were clashes of blades and evidence of suspect steering by some of the crews. At the coaches 1 dinner on the Wednesday night leading up to the Head of the River, John Boultbee spoke introduced-james Armati, who presented the Boatshed with an oar to commemorate their gold medal performance at the World Junior Rowing Championships in Poland. This oar will now hang with an Oxford oar presenred by Graham Jones and a Mexico Olympics oar presented by Bob Shirlaw. After loading all the boats and oars (or nearly all of them), dinner was held early so the telegram night could begin. Included below is part of one of the telegrams read our: Have faith in your strength in the training you've done focus on whaes ahead a:nd the race to be run row like. the clappers be a mighty machine leave the others in your wake just let them see where you've been you can do it guys you 1 ve had the best training yet you've got what it takes ro beat all the rest so good luck and best wishes for you all on the day we know you can do it what more can we say. After all the disappointments for Sam Campbell during the season it was some compensation for him to receive his scarf from rhe Shed M urn, Chris Alexander, on telegram night. With all the races put forward by 80 minutes, the rowers were up early and at the SIRC by Sam. A light northerly wind (cross tail) greeted them as they stepped out of the bus, and this continued to blow for the entire regatta. Right on 160

161 midday, in summery conditions, all was in readiness for the the main race. However there were a few nerves in the Shore boat: Stuart Anderson thought he saw the traffic light change to gre~n and moved. Consequently Shore was awarded a false start and suffered some abuse from the crew on their coxswain 1 s right. Far from unsettling the Shore rowers, this only served to harden their resolve. When all crews finally got underway, Shore (lane 6) led through rhe 100 metre mark, but Newington (lane 4) then took over and led through the 500 metres by a canvas from Shore, with High (lane 5) a further two seconds back. At the halfway mark not much had changed in the positions, except that Joeys (lane 8) had moved up into third position. During the third 500 metres Riverview (lane 7) moved up to be level with Shore at one stage, but Newington remained in the lead. With only 250 metres to go in the race and with ]oeys finishing fast, Matt Chave (accompanied by a rousing call of 1 Shore 1 from within the boat, especially in the three seat) stepped up the rate and power, and took half a length from the others in the final 250 metres. It was one of the closest and most exciting First VIlis races for a long time. Great credit must go to the crew for remaining calm (even though there were a few long, faces amongst the Shore supporters at this stage) and for showing no signs of panic when their big effort at the halfway mark did not work. Many crews lose heart at this stage but the Shore VIII stayed in contact and pulled away magnificently over the final stages to win by I. 74 seconds from St Josephs who were.23 second in front of Newington. Then followed Riverview, Kings, High, Scots and Grammar. What made this crew champions? There was not a lot of horsepower in this crew, except in one seat, but the sculling times were faster and this crew was at the head of a very strong shed. In addition they were very determined, confident of winning even if they were not leading in the first half of the race. But times taken at the SIRC and at the Nationals seemed to indicate that the standard of GPS rowing in NS\V was not quite as high this year, even though Newington had five back from a victorious crew the previous year. The morale of the crew was very good at all times and they handled the setbacks from illness very well. Second VIII Bow: MA Niall, Stroke: HRM Milne, 2: AH Walker, 3: DG Cameron-Russ, 4: DA Thornborough, 5: MA King, 6: AJ Bates, 7: JSA Gowing, Cox: TSC Henley There is a saying that only those things that you have to work hard for are truly worth achieving and this proved to be true for the 1999 Second VI!L Their success at the 1999 Head of the River Regatta was the result of many months of strenuous physical and mental application, made even harder by the disappointments, aspersions and selfdoubts associated with four early losses to a strong Newington College crew. It is a testament ro the Second VIII that despite all of this it was able to remain focused on its ulrimate goal. 161

162 THE SEASON'S RESULTS November Head of the Parramatta Regatta I st Loretto Normanhurst Regatta I st February NSW State Championships Regatta 3rd St Josephs Regatta 2nd Sydney High School Regatta 2nd Newington College Regatta 2nd March PLC Regatta Scots College Regatta Riverview Gold Cup Regatta GPS Head of the River Regatta I st I st I st I st Selection for the eights began in earnest during the Term III holiday sculling camp. At the end of this camp, a squad of 18 boys took their sculls to the Nepean River for a Skm time rrial, from which 2 eights were provisionally selected. Midway through Term IV, the same squad went to the SIRC (Penrith Lakes) to race off over 2000m, this time for a seat in the crews that would compete in the Head of the Parramatta River Regatta in November. The Second VIII selected at this stage was: Bow David Cameron-Russ, 2 Matthew Niall 3 Andrew Bates 4 Tom Simpson 5 Michael King 6 Jonno Gowing 7 Angus Collingwood-Boots 8 David Thornborough Cox Sam Henley At the Head of the Parramatta River Regatta, the crew took first place in its division, seven seconds ahead of Newington. This was a very pleasing result given the anticipated strength of the Newington crew. A week later the crew headed up to the SIRC for the Loreto Normanhurst Regatta. Disappointingly, only Scots, Riverview and Shore contested the second VIII race. It was however a significant row for the crew who learnt the ill)portance of focusing on its own work and having confidence in its own ability and race plan. It was able at a rating of 33-4 to row down and past a very high rating Riverview crew to take first place. The uaditional January rowing camp culminated in the final selection regatta at the SIRC. Andrew (Max) Walker put in a great- effort to cement a place in the crew. The Second VIII selected was: Bow Stroke Cox David Cameron-Russ Andrew Walker Mat<hew Niall Hadley Milne Michael King Andrew Bates Angus Collingwood-Boots David Thornborough Sam Henley The first regatta of the Term I racing calendar was the NSW State Championships. The crew was beaten into third place by the very fast-finishing Riverview and Newington crews. Some internal reshuffling ensued, and a more confident crew took to the water for the St Josephs Regatta at Iron Cove. Whilst Newington took an early lead, it had to fight off a fast-finishing and much improved Shore crew. The crew entered the Sydney High Regatta with the aim this time of moving out with Newington and pushing away in the second half of the race. Nothing however went right, including having a police boat sitting in front of the crew for a significant part of the race. The crew 162

163 finished a disappointing seven seconds astern of Newington. Two crew changes over the next six days were the catalyst of a major transformation in the crew 1 s fortunes. First, Hadley Milne was moved into the stroke seat. Second, Angus Collingwood Boots was promoted to the FirS< VIII due to the illness of its bow man. jonno Gowing was then brought back into the crew from the First IV and placed straight into the 7 seat. Whilst not winning its race at the Newington Regatta, the crew really took the challenge to Newington, who had to crank the rate up to over 40 strokes per minute to hold it off. This was the season's turning point. Newington was clearly rattled and there was a definite feeling that better was to come. Over the course of the next week, a modification to the race plan for the last real test before the Head of the River, the PLC Regatta at the SIRC, was the only change made. The race was rowed to perfection, with the crew winning by clear water to Kings second and Newington third. The crew went into rowing camp on a high and this was evidenced by the quality of its training. At the Scots Regatta, the crew finished off a great week with an emphatic eight second win over Newington. This win was a very pleasing confirmation of the crew 1 s ability as displayed ar the previous regatta. The morning heat of the Riverview Gold Cup Regatta was a fairly forgettable row, with the crew taking it far too easy and dispensing with many fundamental aspects of technique. The final however was a completely different story. In very rough conditions, the crew made the turn ar the green pile just behind Kings, bur kicked home with tremendous gusto to win by almost one length. The 2nd VIII race at the GPS Head of the River Regatta was one that will be remembered for a long while. As expected, Newington blasted out of the start, establishing a lead by the SOOm mark. This lead was extended by the IOOOm mark. The Shore crew however stuck to its plan and full credit is due to them for this - many others would have panicked at this stage and fallen further behind. Clearly, Newington had used up a lot of energy to move our so far and was ripe for the taking. The crew 1 s efforts over the third SOOm enabled it to draw level by the I SOOm mark. It then pushed out to a clear length margin, which it held to the finish, winning by four seconds over a fast-finishing Kings crew, which pipped Newington out of second place by a mere 0.2 seconds. It was a very exciting way to finish the season and a fitting reward for the effort put in by all crew members, six of whom have now finished their rowing at Shore. Particular mention must go to coxswain, Sam Henley, who achieved his third successive GPS win. It was especially pleasing to retain the LC Robson Trophy in the year that his headmastership is being celebrated through a special function at the Shore Boatshed. Thanks must go to all of the parents for their tireless support and encouragement and of course to Mark Farmer who made such a valuable contribution to the crew 1 s considerable development over the course of the season. 163

164 First IV Bow: C Irvine, 2: T Meurer, 3: P Hurrell, Stroke: S Shepherd, Cox: W Day The First IV this season was a strong and confident crew whose application to training was commendable. At the end of Term IV the crew was coming wgether in a manner that looked promising for the racing ahead. The holidays passed quickly with the live-in rowing camp playing its usual role in assisting with the settling of crew selection and the covering of many kilometres on the water. The unfortunate injury of Bede Moore early in the camp necessitated some crew changes but with the addition of ]ono Gowing the crew 1 s boat speed was not compromised. Jono 1 S time in the crew was quite short but imponant, assisting improvements in rhythm and efficiency. \Vith ]ono returning to the Second VI!l Peter Hurrell moved into the three seat, finalising the seating for the season. The main competition for the season was from the Redlands IV. Both crews were evenly matched sharing an equal number of wms. The different approaches to racing provided some dose encounters where determination on the day generally influenced the outcome. Redlands had the last laugh with a win at the Gold Cup over the shorter Riverview course. Despite the number of wins in the lead up regattas and the fact that this crew had only been beaten by St Josephs there was stih some anxiety on the day of the Head of the River. The "bsence of Redlands allowed the crew the luxury of focusing on themselves and ensuring that they performed to their potential through racwg to a plan whilst remembering their individual contributions to the success of the crew. The record shows that the First IV led at each of the 500m marks and that the finish line margin was about one and a half lengths to St Josephs and a further length to Kings. The first quarter of the race saw a serious challenge from Riverview and Kings proving that the Yarralla Cup was a sought after trophy. The rest of the race had to be rowed well and the very best performance was required to win the Yarralla Cup. A season of committed training combined with both a wealth of experience and sheer determination to win, produced a convincing victory of which the crew can be very proud. The members of the Firsr IV had a really great time together. The win, retaining the Yaralla Cup (Mr Miller's fifth consecutive win) was a thrill. Furthermore, to be a part of the memorable occasion of Shore winning every race on the program was something very special A special thanks is given from the crew to Mr Miller for his efforts in coaching us. It was a special year, one that we will never forget. Second IV Bow: C Cousins, 2: T Arthur, 3: B Moore, Stroke: S Wood, Cox: AL Slocombe The season began with the Head of the Parramatta River Regatta. The race was won comfortably and showed that the crew would be a formidable force in the 164

165 Second IV division. The crew of Alex Slocombe, Chris Cousins, Andrew Walker, Peter Hurrell and Stewart Wood continued their great start to the season by taking out the State Championship and Lorew-Normanhurst regattas. However during rowing camp the crew lost Andrew Walker to the Second VIII and gained a new member, Tom Arthur. With the new crewmember and a change of boat, the crew performed outstandingly to win all their races convincingly. But with injury striking the shed, the crew unfortunately lost Peter Hurrell to the First IV, but found a new former member of the Fours squad, Bede Moore. With the time until The Head of the River getting shorter and shorter, the crew needed to adapt to the new crew member and try and perform like they had been doing all season. The crew showed this determination with an outstanding win in the tricky conditions at the Gold Cup course. After all the preparation and build up for the Head of the River, the Second IV were keen to race on March 27. The lead up regattas and the undefeated record of the crew had them as favourite to win. Conscious of the excitement of the occasion and the fact that many favourites have been beaten at the Head of the River, the feeling within the crew on the morning was one of anticipation but quiet confidence. The warm up row, a couple of hours before the race, was as good as any other row of the season and was a tremendous boost to the crew 1 s confidence. When the time to finally boat for the race arrived they were focused and single-minded about the task ahead. The conditions were ideal for the crew. Confident of our ability and familiarity with the race plan meant that leading in the early stages of the race was not a problem. The first SOOm were covered faster than any other IV (of any race) in a time of 1 minute, 34 seconds. A major push at the half way mark saw us move out to nearly a two length lead, which is where you want to be through the third quarter of the race. This clear margin was maintained for the second half of the race despite the fast finishes from the Kings and Grammar crews. 'T'he final margin was two lengths to Kings followed a third of a length behind by Grammar. It was a tremendous day, very exciting for all involved. In particular, it was rewarding see the discipline and application made over the extended period of the season producing this result for the Shed. The result and the undefeated record for the 1999 Second IV are something very special to the team. Special thanks should also be given to the coach of the Second IV, Peter Miller, for all his time and effort. Third IV Bow: SH Sevier, 2: JS Wilmott, 3: ATW Farkash, Stroke; CT Gowing, Cox: MR Bagnall From the start the Third IV were a very confident crew, establishing them as the benchmark when they rook out the Head of the Parramatta Regatta for their division. In addition to this, they recorded the fasted time by any GPS crew on the water that day, giving them tremendous confidence for the season ahead. Despite this, things were about to 165

166 change. Crew changes would later play havoc with all the CPS Fours and the Third IV were no exception. Rowing in the boat Davies meanc that the crew needed length, but this would soon disappear when Tom Arthur was moved up to the Second IV. In the January camp all sons of combinations were tried but none seemed to work. It was apparent that the new combination was finding it difficult to develop rhythm and thus make the boat go fast. In a last ditch attempt to rectify the problem, the coach, Mr Jon Fitzgerald, decided to swap the Stroke with No. 3 and Bow with No. 2. In addition, he swapped boats and instead of using the Davies, we used the Davidson which was a differenc mould of boat and a lot more stable. Were these changes a recipe for disaster? Not quite. The team had its best row of the camp and agreed that the combinations finally felt right. After working off the extra kilos gained during the Christmas break, the crew was looking forward to their first real test, the NSW Championship Regatta at Penri th Lakes. Going into the race, they didn't treat the opposition lightly and knew, only too well, of the hard training that other schools had undertaken. The crew performed solidly and won the championship comfortably. This was a real confidence boost for the crew and put aside any doubt about the new combination. In all the following regular season regattas the crew won comfortably over some very strong opposition. The only problem was complacency, which our coach pointed out to us time and time again. Going into our last regatta before the Head of the River, the Gold Cup " Riverview, the crew were very focused on the job at hand and, although a shorter course, it can be very tough racing. The crew however maintained their determination and rowed well to take out their division. The final week of the season arrived, and the crew were quietly confident of finishing on a winning note at the Head of the River. The CPS squad went into camp on Wednesday. It was a busy and exciting week and apart from rowing, there were-the Coach's Dinner and the Telegram night to attend. The work on the water was very light, and presented us with a nice change from the long miles undertaken in the previous weeks. By Friday night the crew was itching to race. Finally, race day arrived. Despite being well prepared, the crew was still very nervous. By the time they arrived in the starting blocks, word came down that the Fourth IV had won and this gave the final motivation needed to row the race of their lives. The start was predicable; most_crews bolted our of the blocks and tried to establish an early lead. The Shore Third IV knew this would happen and didn't panic. By the SOOm mark, they made their first move, only to be followed by a strong surge by both the Newington and Kings crews. These crews faded by the looom mark and this is where Shore asserted their dominance. By the lsoom mark they were well clear and just had to hang on to win. The crew concentrated on the last 500-merres and crossed the line in first place to take out the Father Thomas Gartlan Trophy at the Head of the River Regatta. They would later see that this victory contributed to the first 6 race rowing Grand Slam in GPS history. This season is one that the crew will never forget. Much gratitude is extended 166

167 to Mr JW Fitzgerald, the School and the parents for all their support throughout a long and successful season. Fourth IV Bow: ASC Beattie, 2: EB Simmons, 3: AJ Biffin, Stroke: JWW Scruby, Cox: CGR Smith The Fourth IV had a very successful season with the crew winning all but two of their races. After the initial selection process was completed, the crew developed into a formidable combination. The first real challenge was at the Head of the Parramatta Regatta held late in Term IV when the crew performed strongly to win the Fourth IV division. This result was very encouragtng. As a result of both illness and injuries to a number of rowers in the GPS squad, the January rowing camp saw the composition of the crew change. The new crew of Beanie, Simmons, Biffin, Scruby and Smith however, seemed ro be a faster and more dynamic combination than the previous one. As a result, the crew made great progress during the Rowing Camp under the watchful eye of coach/reserve rower Mr Jon Fitzgerald. In the lead-up regattas to the Head of the River, the crew performed strongly with a number of first places. Complacency, the crew 1 S worst enemy, struck at the Gold Cup Regatta at Riverview a week before ~he Head of the River. The crew finished a disappointing second to a strong Riverview crew and knew they had a tough job on their hands if they were to win at the Head of the River. In the week before the big race, the Fourth IV trained with a renewed commitment and determination. All members were very focused on their role in the boat and the all-important race plan. When the big day arrived, the crew travelled to Penrith only to find that they had not packed their oars on the boat trailer. With great self-control, rvtr Fitzgerald asked the First IV if we could use their oars, to which luckily they agreed. Once on the water, the crew were very clear on their plan, and blocked everything else from their minds. The race plan worked and by the 1 OOOm mark the crew made their move and went out to a handsome lead ahead of Riverview and Newington. By the!soom mark this lead extended to four lengths over the opposition who were fading badly. The last 250m seemed to last forever, however the team finally crossed the line to win the Penrith City Council Trophy for the Fourth Fours at the Head of the River Regatta. It was a fantastic moment for the crew, and one that they will never forget. It also laid the foundations for an historic grand slam for Shore School. All the parents are thanked for their great support, as are all the members of the crew and the coach, Mr JW Fitzgerald, for a great season. 167

168 First Junior VIII M Horin, A Murray, P Hudson, R Matthews, A Biffin, B Moore, C Ross, J Hammond, N Marshall, T Short, T Arnott, B Hamblen, C Cornforth, T Gibson, T Wilson, Cox: John Blanch Out of the 15 oarsmen who at various rimes accually raced during the season in the Shore First junior VIII, seven rowers experienced illness or became unavailable because of commitments with higher crews. In spite of this adversity, Shore was still the dominam school in the First Junior Eights with the only disappointing race being at the end of the season in the final of the First Junior VIII for the Silver Goblets. The Rowing season for the First Junior VIII can only be described with feelings of mixed emotion. Upon reflection, pride can be used to describe the impressive wins in the lead up regattas to the Gold Cup. Before this regatta, eight wins out of eight with impressive margins in each race despite illness, crew changes and, at times, transportation problems to access training. This pride could possibly have led to hubris, which prevented the crew from performing to expectations at the crucial time of the season, the Gold Cup Regatta. Strong wins were posted at the Head of the Parramatta, the Loreto Normanhurst Regatta, Grammar Regatca, St Josephs College Regatta, Sydney High School Regatta, Shore Regaua, Newington Regatta and the Scots College Regatta. Although most of these regattas held the Junior Eights in divisions, Shore asserted their apparent supenomy by defeating all their opponents in convincing style. T'he only real competition seemed to come from a strong Shore Second Junior VIII in the odd times they actually trained together towards the end of the season. The season started in October with extensive trials having 40 boys vying for the 24 positions in the Junior VIII squad. From the original squad, a group of 32 boys were evencually selected to row in four Junior Eights. As the season unfolded, our optimism was vindicated with all four junior Eights winning all their races leading up to the Gold Cup. The first regatta of the season was the Head of the Parramatta, a four kilometre time trial. The time for the winning Shore First ] unior VIII was in fact faster than some of the GPS Second Eights. This result was an encouraging sign for the season. The Loreto-Normanhurst Regatta at the International Regatta Centre in late November saw a two length win in tricky conditions in a borrowed boat. This regatta allowed the oarsmen to enjoy the ambiance of the regatta centre, which will be the venue for the Olympic Rowing in the year The boys particularly enjoyed receiving their winning medals in a formal presentation on the Olympic dais. After the Loreto Regatta, the rowers had a well-earned break over Christmas. The Junior VIII rowing camps started in the last week of the january holidays with an attempt to remould the crew after illness and lack of form required a complete reshuffle of the seating. Three vacancies needed to be filled. Fortunately, Tim Short and Nick Marshall had returned from serious illness to secure seats in the crew and the array of talent in the junior squad ensured capable rowers were available to fill the breech. The second half of the 168

169 season starred with an unimpressive win at the Grammar Regatta. To see Shore win by two lengths was encouraging, however Newington looked technically more proficient m their division. Significant changes needed to be made in training, seating and in attitude. Changing boats for the rest of the season compounded the above changes. The St Joseph's College Regatta provided a real test for the new crew combination and approach. A strong win was surprisingly recorded, defeating Newington by two lengths. The preparation for the balance of the season now seemed to be in place. However, the frequent changes within the junior squad continued. Bede Moore became available for selection after a lengthy break from GPS rowing with a shoulder injury. His impressive pre injury form in the GPS First IV forced a place in the crew. A new crew for the First Junior VIII was to be boated for the SHS regatta. After spending one successful week in the crew, culminating with a win at the SHS Regatta (in a time which was actually slower than the Shore Second Junior VIII) Bede Moore was promoted to the GPS fours which again forced a different combination to be boated for the First Junior VIII at the Newington Regatta. Charles Ross was promoted from the Second Junior VIII to see yet another combination competing for Shore in the First Junior VIII in the next regatta, the Shore School Regatta. Once again the First Junior VIII was successful with an impressive win, yet it did not seem to have the required boat speed of a dominant Junior Eight. Charles Ross had to step down from rowing due ro medical problems and once again a reshuffle was forced on the crew for the next regatta. The Scots College Regatta saw the penultimate regatta of the season for the Junior Eights and it was time for the Shore School First Junior VIII to assert irs potential. For the first time since January, rhythm, clearance and appropriate ratios in the execution of the srrqke were in evidence. A stirring win over Newington saw the crew primed for the last regatta of the season, the Riverview Gold Cup. A disrupted week of training affected the taper of the crew. On Gold Cup day, an impressive win in the heat with the fastest Junior VIII time of the day generated positive optimism for the final of the First Junior VIlis - the last race of the season. Unfortunately, Newington somehow drew on reserves not seen before and maintained their lead from the turning pile on the dog leg course, to withstand a fast finishing Shore VIII who timed their final sprint a little too late. The final margin of.02 of a second was an indication of the closeness of the race. Congratulations to all the boys in the squad for their determination in the face of adversity when illness, crew changes or technical obstacles faced them. Second junior VIII N Gay, L Gray, B Hewlett, P Hudson, T Mackellar, T Martin, R Mathews, A Smith, W Stearn Who will ever forget the determined yet disciplined expression on the faces of the Second Junior VIII as they carried the Centenary down the pontoon at Riverview for the climax of the 1998/99 season? In a gesture typical of his commitment and passion, the coxswain, Ben Hewlett, inspired the crew with final personal 169

Yet it was no fluke that the crew had S Archer, J Lew, T Bunting, A reached this stage. Months of intense yet caring coaching by Mr Wells had helped forge a united ream from a group of Underwood, B Simpson, A Hattersley, I Bennett, M Stackpool; A Piggot, N Gay, L Gray talented individuals. Leading the crew was Bill Stearn who proved to be a committed, able and highly respected stroke. Nick Gay settled into the No. 7 seat having improved all season and was a confident and cheery oarsman. The The Third Junior VIII was a most successful crew this year. A fine group of sportsmen with a particularly high level of team spirit. This crew won all its heats and only lost one race throughout the quiet but determined Peter Hudson whole season. This was a most made the six seat his own and was a stable force whose sportsmanship was respected by all. Tim Martin made his presence felt in the 1 engine-room 1 at No. 5, with '110%' written all over his face on regatta day. Andrew Smith developed his strength throughout the season and provided a welcome joie de vivre to the boat,. while, after some movement, Robbie Matthews settled into the No. 3 seat and rook a methodical approach which helped him improve and become a valuable member of the crew. If the strength of a crew can be measured by the quality of the bow then Lachlan Gray put success beyond doubt. However, it was Tom Mackellar in the No. 2 seat who was the crew 1 s true secret weapon. Compact yet powerful, Tom took on the unofficial role of team motivator and mascot and always kept spirits high. 'impressive result as the crew participated in every race. The Third Junior VIII improved considerably throughout the season, getting faster with improved technique and strength. The tactics were quite simple, get our in front at the start, and don't let them overtake you. This effective race plan proved successful all season as most wins were by at least two boat lengths. The only loss to the crew was at the Gold Cup when the Riverview crew after a fierce battle, just beat us over the line. This was a most impressive race indeed, as the time for the Third Junior VIII win was five seconds faster than the Second Junior VIII win. Although this was the last race for the season it demonstrated the character of the crew, as they clapped the other competitors of the race over the line, as disappointed and tired as they were. This was a fine display of Sportsmanship. Indeed, it was spirit that brought this crew irs success both on and off the water. Yes, they made the season their own and they remained undefeated, but the true success of the Second Junior VIII shone through their teamwork, 170

171 Fourth Junior VIII T Gibson, W Srurrock, T Oreverman, J Polkinghorn, 0 Geber, A Oreverman, M Wood-Ryman, K Uebergang, B Walker, S Archer The Fourth Junior VIII had a tremendous season this year. They won their first regatta, the Head of Parramatta, and remained undefeated throughout the whole season. Indeed nor only did they remain undefeated, they improved their lead after every regatta. It was not uncommon for this crew w be in front by seven lengths when they crossed the finishing line. The crew had a fine ream spirit, although it was difficult at rimes covering illnesses in other crews. However 1 they remained positive and dedicated, succeeding throughout including the Gold Cup Regatta.

It began with the usual painstaking selection process for new rowers who might join the squad and also the allocation of all rowers to crews. The aims for Term IV were well achieved by the Christmas holidays. They were to have the crews selected, Improve strength, and improve technique to the point where we could concentrate on racing in the new year.

172 successfu I they had to work harder than other schools. This season, they were blessed with some tremendously strong oarsmen, the ergometer scores being some of the highest ever. Matt King and Simon Uren regularly achieved over 900 for three minutes and others such as Toby Little, Robert Roper and Sam Mathews also achieved remarkably high scores. They were closely followed by Ben Wirth and Nick Ryan Kane. There were also some useful single sculling sessions in which Matt King, Simon Urcn and Tristan Parker proved to be the three fastest. All of this led up to the first regatta which was a tremendous success. All crews won handsomely, only the 1st Quad having a close win over a fast finishing Riverview crew. For the 3rd to 6th Quads, this -was to be the story of the season aldwugh Grammar did improve to worry us in the 3rd and 6th Quad races by the end of the season. From a total of 42 races competed in by the six crews, 40 were won and only two were second places. In the Scots Regatta, the Grammar 2nd Quad took a quick lead at the start and Shore were unable to regain the two lengths lost over the first few hundred metres of the race. The Shore 2nd Quad recovered to record an outstanding and convincing victory at the Riverview Regatta. Having had a few close races with Riverview and Grammar during the season, the 1st Quad were left behind in their final race by a very strong and ever improving Riverview crew. The 1st Quad came second to finish a little disappointed but satisfied that they had been clearly the best crew for all but one race. At the concluding presemations after the Riverview Regana, the coaches presented the following awards: Most Consistent Crew Best On Water Trainer Best OffWaterTrainer Highest Ergometer Score Most Improved Novice Oarsman Most Improved Coxswain Best Quad Oarsman Most Improved Oarsman 3rd Quad Aaron Barnett Sam Chambers Matt King Peter Dimock Brent Hudson Simon Uren Robert Roper These awards concluded a most successful season in every way The quality of rower and character in the 1999 Quads once again augurs well for the future of Shore Rowing.

It must be remembered that this was a totally new sport for them and they had no idea of the skills or the finer poims like keeping the boat suaight on the start line on a windy day. The older boys seemed to do everything so easily yet for these newcomers it was a steep learning curve. The racing season started early in Term I and with the confidence gained from Rowing Camp everyone was relaxed, full of anticipation and yet concerned in regard to the standard of the opposition as the start line was approached for the first time. Both crews won the first race. This gave 172

At the beginning of the season the boys were coached by Mr Sutherland and Mr Shirlaw. This changed in the mid-year with Mr Field coaching the bottom three quads. Mr Field emphasised in his coaching good technique, a positive attitude and sound race planning. He was particular on smoothness and to let the boat run between strokes. Despite the competition the quads 1 times for each race were outstanding. The coxing was mostly a straight course in regattas, but it was at rraining where the coxes had difficulty with each other and the occasional rivercat. The 9th Quad Dowsett. This rowed quad m the John performed outstandingly at training (giving the 7th and 8th Quads a challenge) but at regattas the crew had small difficulties performing to their top levels. With a heavy Shore boat, Grammar was always lurking just ahead, stirring the boys' desire to win so they were rewarded with successes both times at Iron Cove. There was always solid motivation in the racing pieces, especially at training. The loth Quad rowed in the JF Bouftbee and had a successful start to the season crossing the line first on four occasions. These successes were due mainly to the boys 1 craving to win and their sense of pride. They suffered the loss of team members needed in higher teams and as the season unfolded they began falling behind a Grammar crew. Nevertheless, the boys all enjoyed the great team spirit of the sport. The II th Quad rowed in the Mackisack. This crew improved steadily throughout the season. With an extremely strong Grammar crew the boys were only losing by small margins each week. Each rower had a lot to offer~ but it took time to learn to sit the boat up straight. Other than that they rowed with an extremely low rating but with immense power. This team rotated every week to give all the boys a row. Nevertheless ir was a successful season and all boys will be seen back at the Boatshed next year. All boys are commended on their fine efforts. A great number of friendships resulted from the two enjoyable terms of rowing. Mr Field should be recognised for his huge commitment to the 9th, loth and lith Quads. 177

178 SURF LIFE SAVING This summer proved to be kind, with good weather and surf conditions rhroughour the season. Prior to the commencement of Term IV a group of about 15 V Formers spent two afternoons and a Saturday morning at Long Reef completing a 1 Train the Trainer 1 course in preparation for the forthcoming season. There was a heavy workload of instruction in "lerm IV 1998, with the influx of the Form II students making a total of three bronze and four SRC plus two ARC groups. All but six of the candidates passed and most were successful in the holiday or in Term I No student was able to get their IRB license in this part of the season but Scot Carroll, Costa Swift and Chris Maloney did a lot of training with Mr Quail in readiness for Term I Overall the exam system appears to be settling down with greater consistency being shown by the Board of Examiners. Students and masters alike now have greater confidence in the system bur the shorter School term made their job much harder. The biggest problem in Term IV was the lack of coaching due to a number of the staff marking the HSC. Fortunately we were able to fill the gaps by asking two Old Boys, Huw Evans and Chris Wenden, to help with the coaching of the bronze. Anorher disadvantage was that the school buses which rook us to Long Reef once a week were not available this year. Going to Long Reef had proved to be a benefit co all in the previous season. The exposure to the ocean improved board paddling skills in particular so there is active campaigning by SLS for the regular provision of buses during the week for future seasons. Mr VVescon also unfortunately decided w leave the School co take up a position at Trinity. He will be greatly missed by staff and boys alike. An addition to the coaching staff was a positive aspect of the term with Mr Stan Werakso joining and passing his Bronze Medallion. Unfortunately due to long service leave in Term I the boys will not get the benefit of his coaching skills until Term IV The patrollers all passed their proficiency tests with no real problems. Mr Reynolds, who is a former Senior Instructor and Board of Examiners Member, continued the new system where patrollers are withdrawn from patrol work to study for their ARC. This system was fine tuned in Term IV so as f.lot co disrupt the patrols wo much. Our first open day was again a success with a big turn out for the parent son swim race although, as in previous years, there was a lack of mums competing in the event. The swim in fact was more of a wade much to the disappointment many. Awards presented on the day were; Parent/son swim race I st 2nd 3rd Patrol Proficiency Shirts S Bills JThomas N Bentivoglio M Slack A Meurer Peter and Tim Doyle Ross and Peter Debney Cope and Brent Lethbridge R Austin A Greenwell J Lumsdaine J Reeve C Swift 178

Due to the imminent arrival of his baby son, Mr Quail was unable to attend and as a result, a number of senior boys who wamed to practise their IRB driving skills were disappointed. Unfortunately because of the early return to school in 1"brm I, a large number of students who were not in Sydney, missed out on the camp. Those who did auend were able w compete tn a vanety of events and use the equipment in a more relaxed atmosphere. In Term I, Mr Geyer continued to bring light relief to the task of instruction by having a Mars Super Series which involved a competitive element each Saturday morning between the groups and a masters team. The masters remained almost unbeaten -another II massive effort considering the opposing team was a group of 13 and 14 year olds. 'T'he winners were rewarded with a Mars bar or other such confectionery delighcs at the end of each Sarurday. Mr Quail was by now putting in an extra effort to try to get students through the IRB exam an~ this culminated in a very trying exam in rough seas at Long Reef beach. Scot Carroll, Chris Maloney, Costa Swift and Andy Greenwell were able to pass their exam despite the fact that they flipped the boat on a few occasions. The open day started with changeable weather conditions but slowly improved to allow the parent/son sw1m.

Firstly Lachlan Foy saved a young girl in Dee Why pool when the surf was huge and running into the pool. She was knocked off her feet and under the water and Lachlan grabbed her and took her to safety. Secondly Tristan Sugden and Ben Cormack deserve pra1se for their treatment of a 28 year old surfer at Long Reef whilst on roving patrol. The surfer suffered two very bad fin chops to the underside of his leg and had to be taken to Royal North Shore for treatment. The patrollers continued to enjoy a variety of competition events in fierce competition for the Hugh Kesterton Award for Term I This included a continuation of 'The Best \\ 7 ave' event where each patrol nominated a board rider and a body boarder each. 1st 2nd Jrd 1st 2nd Jrd 1st 2nd 3rd Conditions: Fine with a half metre swell Ella Bache Points Total Points Shore 4'1 Riverview 23 Barker 17 FRESHWATER CARNIVAL Conditions: Fine with a one to 1.5 metre swell Ella Bache Points Total Points Shore Riverview so Barker ELLA BACHE FINAL POINTS ~ 6 Shore Riverview Barker 6 94 points '14 points 23 points.

This year was no exception with Paul Dennis, Scott Macintosh, Tim and Ben Middleton, Campbell Chang and Cam Coghlan dominating the water events. A special mention must go to the beach relay team who won a silver in the Branch cities held this year at Long Reef. In the State titles at Narrabeen Paul Dennis and Scott Macincosh took places: and a number of others did well in the Btanch titles including jono Reeve, Cam Coghlan, Sean Bills and Ben Isaac. Mr Bird was agatn excremely efficient in starting all of the carnival events and Mr Clark from Long Reef provided support. As well as this, a valuable day of instruction was enjoyed by all The Shore parents did a great job by providing a barbecue at each of the beach events and a big word of thanks must go to Mr and Mrs Middleton for their great help this season.

Many thanks should go to members of Long Reef SLSC who assisted throughout the season and these include Steve Cox, Cath McDougall and Todd Wiley for their help with Bronze Exams and patrol matters. Peter Clark helped with all things, but is especially thanked for his organisation of competition and the assistance given in running the activity for the school. All in all the season was most enjoyable for both staff and boys and we all look focward to another season of good surf and weather. In Term IV,.Form II boys are reminded that if they would like m join the sport they don't have to wait until their entry into Form III as has been the case in the past. 49 ARC Instructor 6 IRB 4 181

182 SWIMMING This year's season was a most successful one, with a number of outstanding performances. As a result the following boys were selected to join the GPS Swimming Team, at the Combined Independent Schools Carnival in March: Tim and Ben Middleton, Paul Dennis, Campbell Chang, Ma<thew and Andrew Press, Luke Rochlin and Sco<t Mcintosh. From that carnival, both Paul Dennis and Andrew Press went on to be part of the C!S team to compete at the All Schools Carnival in July. [n that meet, Andrew was placed seventh in the 13 yrs 50m Bunerfly (in a personal best time), and Paul was placed seventh in the yrs loom Freestyle; fifth in the 17 yrs 50m Bunerfly; fourth in the 17 yrs 50m Freestyle, and he won gold in the Freestyle Relay. This was an excellent effort, reflecting the strength of his final year of swimming here at Shore. In addition, Paul holds School records for the following events: Ul3 loom Freestyle (1:05.00); Ul7 50m Freestyle (25.50); Ul7 50m Backstroke (3Z.l3); Ul7 loom Freestyle (58.ZO); U17 ZOOm Freestyle (Z:04.00) and the Ul7 ZOOm Individual Medley (Z:Z7.03). Paul is certainly one of the strongest swimmers ever to have been through Shore. One set of team results that is unlikely to be repeated at Shore is that of the Ul7 Relay Team. Composed of the following swimmers: Tim Middleton, Paul Dennis, Campbell Chang, Sam Campbell and Scott Mcintosh, this group were undefeated in the 4 x SOm Medley Relay for six years straight. It was not un_til the fateful meet at Newington this year, when two of the team members were absent because of commitments with the State Surf Life Saving Championships, that they lost by less than one second to the host school. At every weekly carnival, the anticipation of this final event of the evening was tangible, as all other schools were aware of the record at risk. Their epic success will hopefully serve as inspiration to the junior relay teams in years to come. The 1999 Swimming Age Champions were: Luke Rochlin (UlZ); Andrew Press (U13); Ben Middleton (U14); Sam Niall (Ul5); James Hutchinson (Ul6); Paul Dennis (Ul7); and Tim Middleton (Opens). Congratulations to all of these boys. As our Form VI swimmers leave the School, they will be sorely missed being some of the best talent in the squad. Tim, Paul and Campbell represent the most accomplished and consistent performers over the last six years. In addition, as captain, Tim demonstrated not only his fine leadership skills, but also great administrative thoroughness, reliability and maturity and is thanked for his assistance throughout the season. 182

183 SUMMER TENNIS Firsts With wins over Scots, Newington and Grammar, the Firsts ended the GPS competition in 5th place. This was Shore's best result since the premiershipwinning side in It was a great feat for probably the youngest GPS team ever, with not one player being over the age of 16. The team will only lose one player next year and, with the experienced gained from this year, it is sure to be one of the dominant teams in the year The craining sessions were both enjoyable and competitive for all players. There was great rivalry between certain individuals in the reflex volley drills and in 'half-court, first to seven points'. Despite this rivalry, all members got on extremely well, both on and off the court. This was demonstrated by great team spirit and support on Saturdays, week after week. Matthew Allely shared the No.I and No. 2 positions with Tim Bigg. Matthew showed a great variety of skills this year that will continue to improve with more experience and maturity. He showed a good temperament on court and never allowed his opponent to get the better of him. He displayed this in a match at Newington where he showed great composure against his older competitor to win convincingly 6-3, 6-2. Tim Bigg played some very tough opponents this season at the No.1 and No. 2 positions. However, he never gave up and always gave it his best effort. This determination was shown in a match against Scots where Tim was able to come from behind in the second set and win a very close match 7-6, 7-5. He also showed great temperament on the court which will be a great asset to the team when he is one of its senior members next year. Andrew Scanlan was captain for this season and had good wins against Kings, Scots, Grammar and Newington. His match at Kings was a highlight after being 4-6, 4-0 down he managed to fight back and win the match 4-6, 7-5, 6-0. Another highlight was against Newingwn where the first set went to a tie-breaker and Andrew managed to win seven straight points in a row to win 7-0. Paul Crebar had a good season with wins against ]oeys, Scots, Riverview, Newingwn and Grammar. He showed great determination and commitment at both training and on Saturdays. Paul was the only player to win against the two toughest teams, ]oeys and Riverview. Both of these matches were long threesetters and went 1 down to the wire 1 with a tiebreaker in the second set of each match. Paul showed great temperament and maturity on the court which will be a great asset to the team next season. Andre Bognar had wins against Scots, Newington, Grammar and Sydney High. When Andre won, he won with great dominance and was a player who, when he was 1 hot 1, was unstoppable. Against Scots he won 6-1, 6-1. Versus Newingron he won 6-0, 6-3. In the Grammar match he won 7-6, 6-0 and against High he won 6-2, 6-0. With his powerful strokes from the baseline and his skilful shots at the net, Andre will only improve with expenence. Shore probably had the best tail end in the GPS and this was mostly due to Tim French who played at No. 6. Tim 183

184 was probably the besc No.6 player in the GPS and showed this with wins against Joeys, Kings, Scots, Newington and Grammar. Tim was very reliable and we could always count on a win from him. He was one of the more lively players at training and usually kept everyone entertained. Thanks muse go co Mr Palmer for his guidance and to Scott Riley for his expert coaching. Together they enabled training co be both enjoyable and competitive. Scott gave valuable advice at all rimes, but especially on Saturdays. When 'the chips were down 1, he would always give confidence and tactical measures to players, who benefited greatly. Special thanks must also go to all of the parents for putting up with their sons when things didn't go right. Again the Shore parents won the premiership for the best afternoon teas on Saturdays. With 10 out of 12 First and Second players returning to the couns for the School next year, the future of Shore tennis looks w be a bright one. GPS COMPETITION TABLE N H G E K S lsts IS nds71.S Seconds JE Henderson (C), TR Waterhouse, Cj Gerahty, AT Halstead, PC Hadley, SJM Anderson The season for 1999 has proved to be most successful for this side. Although they did nm wtn the Premiership and became runners up, the side was basically undefeated. In fact Riverview, who won this year 1 s prize,. won exactly the same number and also drew the same number of matches as Shore. Riverview were averaging roughly winning 8-9 matches our of a possible 9 match rubber each Sacurday compared co Shore's average which seemed to be winning between 6-7 matches out of a possible 9. Before the actual competition began, Shore had a trial match with St Josephs, which ended in a victory of 6-3 to us. With confidence high Shore began round one of this seven-week competition by meeting St Josephs once again and winning 7-2 matches. The following week the team met a very determined Kings, who made us work for every point in every march. In this round the No. 2 doubles pair (John Henderson and Simon Anderson) along with rhe No. 3 pair (Anrhony Halstead and Phillip Hadley) were able to overcome a very forceful opposition. \\!ins were recorded in the singles matches by Tom Waterhouse (7-6, 6-1), John Henderson (6-3, 6-3) and Phillip Hadley (7-6, 4-6, 6-3). The final result was 5.5 marches to 3.5 matches in favour of Shore, meaning that the last match was left unfinished due to a time constraint placed on every round each Saturday. The following week Shore travelled over the Sydney Harbour Bridge to play a strong Scots College. The final result here was 6.5 to 3.5 matches with yet again another match left unfinished. The time limit given to each Saturday's set of matches is five hours with the use of four courts. Again Shore was able to win the Nos. I and 2 doubles comfortably and the first four singles matches. Phillip Hadley was up 4-6, 6-4, 5-1 and only 184

185 needed five more minutes to complete the set ro win, but time was to be his enemy on this day. The eagerness of both Shore and Riverview was never so evidem as it was on this day. Both sides knew they had to win ro stay in front. One hour of the possible five hours available to play these marches was lost due to rain. It was not until 1.30pm that the matches started, and even then, very slowly. Shore won two out of three in the doubles, which was a very pleasing resulr. For both sides, four matches were left unfinished and since a majority of five matches has to be won in each round in order for a winner to be declared, neither side was able to achieve this. In better sunny conditions Shore met Newington at Northbridge the following week and won 7.5 matches to Newington 1 S 1.5 matches. Tom Waterhouse and Chris Gerahty had a very tough No. 1 doubles, which turned out in their favour (7-5, 7-6) along with Anthony Halstead and Phillip Hadley (6-2, 7-5). Five members of this team were able to win their singles very convincingly but unfortunately Simon Anderson was unable to finish due to a time constraint. With just two rounds to go the ream travelled again over the Harbour Bridge to Grammar 1 s playing fields to win all the doubles matches, which was an excellent result. \Vins in the singles matches were posted by John Henderson, Anthony Halstead and Phillip Hadley. Again the clock beat Simon Anderson and the result for him was one set to him and one set to his opposition. The final result here was 6.5 matches to 2.5 marches in favour of Shore. For the last round, the ream was aware that Sydney High was a muchimproved side. It did not take long to find this om, with Shore winning only two out of a possible three doubles matches. Tom Waterhouse (6-4, 4-6, 6-4), Chris Gerahty (6-4, 6-4), Anthony Halstead (7-6, 6-4) and Phillip Hadley (6-1, 6-2) were able to finish the season on a good note. The final result was six matches to three in favour of Shore. Mr Mounjed is warmly thanked for all his help both on and off the court. The season has been a most rewarding one and every player improved his game. Thirds ML Farago, PS King, NJ Lark worthy, OM Lane, JGY Seeto, JFH Wood This ream had mixed results in both the pre-season round (three wins, two draws, one loss) and the GPS round (three wins, one draw, two losses). The hardest opposition played was Joeys who gave the Thirds a bit of a hammering in the first GPS match of the year. From then on fortunes began to improve as internal competition sorted the players into an effective force. The Thirds rhen went on to finish the season with solid wins. Fourths AC Brawn, DA Cubbin, DR Jenkin, AT Loader, AA MacKinnon This proved to be a successful team that was able to look back on a satisfying season. Initially this did not seem so likely as they had a disappointing pre-season 185

186 round (two wins, one draw, three losses) and we were soundly beaten by Joeys in the round one of the GPS. However things changed dramatically and the Fourths went on to win the remaining five matches in fine style. It was a pity that the Riverview game was washed out so depriving the team of the opportunity to avenge the pre-season loss. Fifths CT Brooks, BM Eyles, AE Spring, MC Taylor, CD White A shortage of players meant that the Fifths could not field a team in the preseason round. When the GPS round began they looked fine on paper but persistent injuries were to deprive them of a number of their stronger players. Thus Shore Tennis Fifths were to get too many opportunities to demonstrate that they could lose graciously. Under 16 16A JR Pfeiffer (C), JW Debney, GJ Madgwick, TJ Paramor, Ej Cousins (injured) 16B MJ Paton, DC Wood, TC Holmes a Court, SGR Drane, PJ Christofferson (injured) 16C PAA Smith, AD Housden, ST Roennfeldt, AM Clemens 16D jb johnson, H Burridge, VWT Liu, TP Hearl This year was one of great success for Shore's Under 16s tennis teams. Some of the main highlights were the As 6-0 win over Newington, the Bs 6-0 win over Newington, the Cs 5-l win over Scots and the Ds 6-0 win over St Josephs. The season had some setbacks, the biggest of which was losing our AZ player Elliot Cousins in the third week of term with a suspected collarbone fracture. The l6as ended up having four wins and three losses. After losing Cousins, Toby Paramor was brought up from the Bs, and did a great job for the team. Wi<h Pfeiffer playing with Madgwick and Paramor playing with Debney, the team had a very successful season. The 16Bs also had a good season even after losing Toby to the As. With the unfortunate loss of Peter Christofferson to injury, the Bs continued to outplay many of their opponents. The doubles pairs were Paton and Holmes a Court and Drane and Wood, with both pairs playing well together. The!6Cs had an excellent season being undefeated until the last two weeks. With the loss of Holmes a Court to the Bs early in the season, the Cs recovered well to win most of their matches. With the doubles pairs being Smith and Housden and Roennfeldt and Clemens, the Cs had a very consistent year. The!60s somehow managed also to have a good season even though the year was unsettled with people moving in and our of the team. The team also only lost two of its marches with the help of some excellent doubles pairs, johnson and Hearl and Burridge and Liu. Special mention goes to the squad's great coach Mr Whitehouse who helped 186

187 the team throughout the season. All team Under 14 members are very appreciative of his tremendous efforts. Under 15 J Takayasu, T Barbat, N Booth, N Parrot, D Rose, B Tedder, J Chivers, A Ekin, R, Loader, A Bousgas, R Loader, R Harris, H Willis, D Forrai, J Wardlaw, M Bjorke This was a competitive season for the lss team, with particularly strong opposition from Newington and Scots College. Shore won impressively against Joeys, Kings, Riverview, Grammar and High with particular strength from the A and C teams, which were only beaten by Newington. The D ream can be particularly proud of having never lost in Term I, bur did have a few close draws against Kings and Scots. There was a lot of friendly rivalry within the A team, with a lot of vying for position and hard-fought challenge matches. This was particularly noticeable from the impressive new arrivals, Ross and Rory Loader and Jamie Chivers. Overall, it was a good season for all players. As a ream the boys worked together well, with a great atmosphere at training and support for each other during matches. There was a great deal of goodwill among the boys as well as a healthy competitive spirit and desire to win. Many times boys fought hard in close matches to come through with a win. 14A H Jenkins, D Shillcock, J Christie, J Robertson 148 A Weston, G Hanson, P Russel-Cooke, J Til brook 14C N Wad ham, D Bellingham, T Hardwick, B Vincent 140 C Tressider, G Little, A Johnson, T Arnold Reserves: P Bray, B Tisch vet"sus J 14A C 14D TERM I RESULTS OUT OF 6 SETS K S.

'f'he years to come promise also to be very successful with these young players rising through the r~n~~,.of, tennis at Shor~.. f-!. cqhesive and energetic ream, with some dynamic players and personalities, the season 1 s numerous wins are witness to the prowess of the players and their coach Miss Stone. As a squad, there were no overall losses on any of the competition days. Joeys, Scots and High certainly felt the sting of the Shore boys 1 serves, with all the Shore teams winning their matches outright. Kings and Grammar, though putting up a good struggle on their home.courts, could not overcome the determination of the Shore boy. Inclement weather prevented the Riverview matches from being completed, despite the keenness of the boys and their coach to play on, despite the rain. Newington and Shore drew even at 2-2, securing a loss-free season for the under 13s. The A team is to be congratulated on its strong doubles partnership. The boys' determination and sense of fair play did not go unnoticed by spectators ~nd opponents alike. Both the B team and the 0 ream were totally undefeated throughout the entire season. Such an impressive display of consistency and team spirit is to be congratulated. Every boy played with vigour and many determined to improve. t~eir squad ranking through formal challenge matches. The C team also had a great season, winning all but One match. The competitive strength of the squad, as well as their capacity to en"joy tennis as a sport, proved to be a force to be reckoned with. Overall, it was a wonderful s~ason. The Under 13s are thankful to Miss Stone for her commitment to the team spirit and for her match-play guidance. All players enjoyed a rewarding and successful season of tennis. \ 188

189 WINTER GAMES CROSS-COUNTRY Shore had successful a season for crosscountry In 1999, with many fine performances being recorded both by individuals and teams. In total, Shore had 61 registered runners in the three age divisions, meaning we did not enjoy the same depth as in previous years. Nevertheless, the team was very enrhusiasric and dedicated, and this more than made up for the reduced numbers. The U!4 team comprised 19 runners who showed remarkable improvement throughout the season, thanks to their determined attitude. The ream began the season finishing fifth or sixth each week, yet towards the end of the season were consistently finishing in the top three, culminating m a superb performance at the GPS Championships, which earned them third position. Competi(ion was fierce a( (he wp of (he U14 (Cam classification, meaning Shore were only four points behind the secondplaced St Ignatius team. The main thrust of this improvement came from the individual efforts of Grant MacDonald and Craig Allsop who both managed to break into the top 10 in the final weeks of the season. It was unfortunate for the team that only the first four runners from each school contribute towards the team placing, since the U14 team possessed a wealth of talent. This was demonstrated by the fact that eight Shore runners finished in the top 20 at the GPS Carnival. The U 16 team was by far the most successful team, winning five out of the 11 cross-country events this season, including an U16 Premiership at the GPS Championships. All members of the team were focused in their attitude towards training, which led to substantial improvements by runners -Of every standard. The mainstay of the team was new recruit Tim Dreverman who recorded five wins and two second posmons throughout the season, including becoming the GPS U16 Champion. Tim was also a representative of the Combined Independent Schools Team at the State Cross-Country Championships, where he finished twelfth. This is the best position ever achieved by a Shore cross-counuy runner at state level. Cameron Peterson was consistently the second runner, finishing third on four occasions throughout the season. Geoff Madgwick and Lachlan Foy both recorded personal best positions on the GPS day, allowing a very low score of 24 points. Despite strong opposition from Newington and Sydney Grammar, Shore was able to score a convincing victory. These boys will certainly make an exceptionally strong 189

190 Open ream in the years to come. This year's Open ream was relatively small and most weeks we could only manage to field 12 or 13 runners. Faced with some very high quality opposition from Joeys and Scots, Shore was not in a position to defend the NA Emery trophy which has been held for the past two years. Nonetheless, the Open team relished the challenge of competing against such high quality opposition and the competitive environment forced everyone to produce his best effort. Scott Pridgeon and Rob Hodgson were consistently placed in the top 20, also managing several placings in the top 10. James Wood and David Cameron-Russ had their first season m Open competition and were valuable members of the team, both making improvements of over 20 places. Derry Geber joined the team late in the season and showed promise, but unfortunately had nor run Woodlands School in Coventry. The team trained with us during the week and then competed at the Sydney Grammar Invitation Carnival on Saturday with great success. It was an enjoyable week for both the Shore boys and their billets. One of the hallmarks of the season was the captaincy of Rob Hodgson. His maturity and enthusiasm were infectious and he proved to be an outstanding example. Rob helped mould the entire team imo a happy and motivated unit who really began to enjoy their running. This spirit augurs well for the seasons ahead Selections Selected to represent GPS at Combined Independent Schools (CIS) Championships in enough events to qualify for the CPS OPEN: S Pridgeon, R Hodgson event.

192 RUGBY The 1999 Rugby Season was blessed with magnificent weather which provi ded ideal player and spectator conditions. Sho re fielded 33 reams, m~tny of which achieved ou ~ca ndin g results and played an open and amacdve brand of football. The cop seven Under- 13 teams all had tre me ndous seasons wid1 the 13Es winning 11 from 11. The Fourth and Fifth XVs won I 0 from 11, d1e Third XV won 9 from 11 and all A reams performed soundly. At the other e nd of the scale were a number of teams who struggled ro find wins, ofren due ro peculiarities in the draw caused by the huge variation in the number of sides fielded by the eight GPS schools. The persistence and positive approach maintained by the players and coaches of these teams was creditable ami it is co be hoped that they will come back stronger nexc year. The standard of coaching at Shore continues co be first dass. Every ream is coache<.l by one or more members of staff and rhis makes available co the players a higln level of expertise in Rugby along with an a ppreciatio n of the many educational va lues associated with playing a team sport. It is 3Jso one of the reasons why [hc high level of good spurcsmanship displayed by Shure boys has been ma intained. The fancas[ic 1998 GPS Premiership win was always going to be a hard act co follow. The 1999 First and Second XV Sf)IJad starred the season in n positive frame Of mind With two boys re turning from the successful 1998 side along with several from Lhe Second, Third and Fourch A.'Vs and seven youngsters from the successful Under lsa side. They trained extremely hard in the lead up co the season and, although their results were not as imprcssi ve as in t 998, they remained focused an<.l fully commicred at all rimes. Playing against the four favoured sides in che first four rounds of the com peri cion was always going co be a 'make or break' siruarion and perhaps some inexperience :and occasional indiscipline proved costly. ln all four of these matches the First XV provided committe<.l and cough opposition and d1ey certainly had chances ro secure victory, particularly when they led S t Josephs All of the opposirion came ott the field knowing cbey had played a very physical game and rhey ofte n paid tri bute to the tough u ncompromising play by Shore. After che first four rounds, the First XV finished with three comprehensive vicrorics ro finish the season on a high note. Congratulations to the coaches Mr Stokes (tnd Mr Ticchurst on a job well done. Congratulations co the follo wing players chosen for GPS representar.ion: Comb1ned GPS Resef"es: Comb1ned GPS 3rd >N: Comb1ne<l GPS 2nd >N BenCrovve Will Rogel'$ Nathan Dick1nson Ben Irving Antho!'ly Alexander (Q Russell Terrey Congratulations also to Anthony AlexanJc r who was sc.:lccred in the NSW School boys Second A.'V.

193 scintillating tries were scored. Well done to the players and coaches, Mr Miller and Mr Humphrey. The experience gained by many of the younger First and Second XV players along with the snong suppon provided by the other Opens teams augurs well for Many thanks to Or Wansey and the group of physiotherapists led by Beverley Giovanelli and Sue Coulson who provided such fine medical support throughout the season.- Thank you also to Chris and Ross Alexander for the huge amount of work in organising catering and supporting the First and Second XV through afternoon teas, coordination of the Rugby Camp and the End of Season Function. Thank you also to the willing band of parents who gave up their time to help Chris and Ross in so many ways.. Thank you also to Mr Leechman for his organisation and. appointment of referees as well as his co-ordination of the referees course earlier in the year. The overall standard of refereeing was good and hopefully with more boys and staff taking the course next year, the standard will conrinue co improve. Congratulations to the Senior Referee, Nicholas Bentivoglio, who achieved the distinction of having- refereed more Shore Rugby matches in his time at the School than any other boy (104 matches). The Captain of Rugby for 1999 was Anthony Alexander and he did a fine job. He led by example on the field and was rewarded with the captaincy of the GPS Second XV and subsequent selection for the NSW Second XV at the Australian Schoolboys Rugby Championships. It is fitting that the winning team at these Championships has been awarded, for the first time, the BH (Jika) Travers Trophy in honour of Mr Travers who was insqumental in setting up the Australian Schoolboys Rugby Union. A final thank you to all parents and Old Boys who continue to support Shore Rugby, and to all the coaches who did such a fine job. Rugby Referees Thanks are due all those members of the School Community who helped referee the Saturday matches this season. With over 200 games played, the help of a broad range of referees was really appreciated. At the start of the season, a Level 1 referee 1 S course was held on the School grounds. A dozen or so staff and several boys attended the course with the following attaining their Level I badge; Mr G Arnott, Mr P Cameron, Simon Gardner, Mr P Knight, Mr M Gray, Robert Mack, Mr. P Miller, Mr R Stobo, Mr M Ticehurst and Mr B Underwood. Also the following boys passed the law component and will go onto the practical next season: Andrew Bain, Cameron Colwell, Richard Goswell and Andrew McCarthy. Congratulations arc in order and your participation on the playing fields next season is eagerly awaited. The School would also like to publicly thank the following members of our School Community for their contributions: Mr G Campbell, Mr T Hale, Mr J Goodare, Mr I Fraser, Mr R Fitzhardhinge, Mr R Morrison, Mr R Shaw, Mr D Anderson, Mr S Werakso, Mr 0 Wood, Mr T Allerton, Mr C Pudig, Mr C Ounkmantin, Mr N Kiely and Mr 193

194 M Batty. The experience and quality of their refereeing was appreciated by all those involved in the game. At Shore we also have a fine tradition of boys refereeing matches. Refereeing provides these boys with a real chance to improve their communication, decisionmaking and leadership skills. Boys from Forms III to IV are able to participate, whilst younger boys can learn the art by touch judging. Our Captain of refereeing was the very affable Nick Bentivoglio, who this year became the highest capped referee in Shore's history. The I 04 games he did for the School are a testimony to his ability and love of the game. We hope Nick will continue to help us out next season. He also should be congratulated for becoming the first Shore boy whilst at school to become a Level 2 referee. Andrew George (who hopes to continue refereeing in the ACT next year) was also a great help throughout the season. He continues to develop into a fine referee. Also from Form VI, Lachlan Foulsham maintained his reputation as an excellent schoolboy referee. His ability to control games of all levels is a credit to him. From Form V, Andrew Hutchinson and Simon Gardner were our regular contributors. The maturity of these two boys who would often put themselves out to referee games was impressive. Simon Gardner 1 s season ended on a high note by becoming a part of the NSW Rugby Referees Association WRAP squad, where he will have the opportunity to be coached at the highe.r level. We look forward to the squad's continued involvemem next season. Newcomers from Form IV were Robert Mack and Alistair Hattersley. Both boys play Rugby in the top teams for their age group, and this undoubtedly helped them as they started to learn the art of refereeing. Both show a great deal of potential and their development over the next few years will b~ observed and noted. Once again it has been a busy but enjoyable and season. Thank you for all those who have become involved in refereeing, for without your help none of the games could have occurred. First XV AT Alexander, SG Anderson, AS Collingwood-Boots, BK Crowe, GA Dickinson, NJ Dickinson, MJ Foulsham, HIK Geddes, BR Irving, TW Jamison, JJ Lew, MW Molloy, LR Roberts-Thomson, RJ Terrey, WS Rogers Also played; SI Bills, IG Blaxland, NJC Church, TGJ Gibson, EJ Wellings The First XV of 1999 was a side full of enthusiastic and diligent players. In the GPS competition the team recorded four losses and three wins. It must be noted that the final scoreline in three of the four losses was by Jess than a converted tty. The forward pack proved itself to be competitive in every game. What some players lacked in experience and size, was more than made up for with a passion for playing the game. At loose head prop, Tom Gibson proved himself a worthy competitor, strong scrummager and a dedicated team member. Russell Terrey joined the team midway through the GPS competition by virtue of the improvement in his scrummaging and strong running with the ball in hand. His efforts were rewarded with his selection in the GPS 194

195 Second XV. As hooker, Angus lapses proved costly and resulted in opposition tries at vital times. Nathan Dickinson played serum half and improved the standard of his game as the season progressed. He worked very hard to improve his strength and the benefits of his training were seen in his strong defence. N athan 1 S good performances were rewarded with selection in the GPS Third XV. As fiveeighth, Anthony Alexander set a very high standard for the team to follow. He led by example and as captain he displayed tremendous maturity as he controlled the team 1 s progress m matches. Ant possesses tremendous attacking skills and his tackling remained outstanding throughout the season. It was a fitting reward for him: to be selected as the captain of the GPS Second XV and also a member. of the New South Wales Second Team. Greg Dickinson and Will Rogers in the centres formed a strong combination. Both boys were solid in defence and both possessed the ability to beat t~eir opponents. Greg has the physical qualities to do well at the senior level and he has all the skills needed by an Collingwood-Boots demonstrated a valuable ability to control the set phases in forward play. His quick wit and enthusiasm were appreciated by all. At tight head, Mark Molloy proved himself to be the cornerstone of the serum. His diligence in pre-season weight and fitness training assisted his improvement in speed to the breakdown. Tom Jamison and Lewis Roberts Thomson combined as an effective second row. Both were strong in tlefew..:e; Tom being an excellent lifter in the lineout; Lewis stealing a great deal of opposition ball as a jumper. The back row consisted of Ben Crowe, Matthew Foulsham and Henry Geddes. Ben's strength and agility ensured possession of much secondphase ball. He was quick to the breakdown and tenacious in defence. As Vice Captain, he led by example and thoroughly deserved his selection in the GPS Third XV. As blind side flanker, Matt repeatedly pilfered opposition second-phase ball. His efforts in defence were invaluable. Henry Geddes was an astute No. 8. He controlled the ball well at the back of the serum and called the lineours with discernment. Henry 1 S perseverance at training and in games was admirable. Other forwards who contributed during the season include Sean Bills and Edward Wellings. Both players were enthusiastic and dedicated towards all that they undertook. The backline was made up of boys who had already experienced GPS standard Rugby in either the First or Second XV in A combination of speed and strength augured well yet there were occasions when defensive inside centre. Will came into the team later in the season and made an immediate impact with his strong running and ability to beat a player. His performances caught the eye of the selectors and he was chosen as a reserve for the GPS Third XV. Nick Church also played in the centres and performed admirably. He was a very committed member of the team. The wingers were James Lew and Stuart Anderson. James possesses great speed and has a strong desire to compete at the highest level. He displayed his capabilities throughout the season and 195

196 will be a better player for the experience.. Stuart was a very dedicated member of the team. He gave 100% at all times and was eager to learn. His performances improved as his confidence grew. Ian Blaxland also performed in the ream and was a threat with his speed and ability to beat his opponent. Ben Irving was the fullback for the team and he proved to be a potent attacking weapon. 1-Iis timing of runs into the backline saw him launch many raids which resulted in tries for team members. Ben improved his defence and his positional play throughout the season and was selected in the GPS Third XV The games leading to the GPS competition proved to be a baptism of fire for many of the younger players. All these games were hard fought by both sides, in particular the game against Riverview and the Kings College (New Zealand). These matches were bruising encounters, which helped to strengthen the resolve of the team to do well in the GP.S competition. The Rugby development tour to Canberra in the Easter holidays and the Rugby camp in the july holidays, held at the Shore Boarshed, were both successful in developing individual and group skills. The success of the camp at the boatshed was in no small part due ro the team of hard working mothers, led superbly by Mrs Alexander. David Anderson 1 S generous assistance during both camps and throughout the season was also invaluable. GPS Competition Matches Round 1 Shore v. The King's School Northbridge, 24 July Result: Kings 22 def. Shore 9 (Alexander 3 penalty goals) The opening round was played against Kings under relatively sunny skies. The first half was evenly contested with good phase play by Shore leading to a ruck close to the Kings line. Unfortunately the referee witnessed an infringement by a Shore player and the attacking raid was over. At half time the score was 12-9, in Kings favour. In the second half there was some good play by both sides with the Kings backline finding some holes in defence. Solid defence made it difficult for either side to make ground off the side of the ruck, however eventually the powerful Kings forward pack combined with a skilful backline to score two tries towards the end of the match. The final score was 22-9 with an unfortunate penalty count of 13-6 in Kings favour. Round 2 Shore v. The Scots College Bellevue Hill 31 july 1999 Result: Scots 21 def. Shore 17 (G Dickinson, Geddes, Irving tries; Alexander conversion) Each side keenly contested both the first and second halves. Shore scored first through some powerful forward phase play leading to Greg Dickinson's try. Scots were able to retaliate through solid mauling by the forwards leading to a couple of good backline tries. Then Shore came back with a strong lineout 196

197 leading to a try by Geddes and then an intercepted pass by Irving also led to a try. Shore finished the game tantalisingly close to the Scots line, just unable to score again to win the match. The final score This, coupled with a tremendous field goal by Rogers, saw Shore go to the break with a lead. In the second half the Joeys team managed to overhaul the margin and finish the game with a hard fought win. Round 3 Shore v. St Ignatius College Riverview 7 August 1999 Result: Riverview 17 def. Shore 10 (Rogers try; Alexander conversion; Alexander penalty goal). After a rough trial match in Term II, Shore was keen to display their improved defence and attack. The game started at a frantic pace with Shore pressuring the Riverview line following good ball retention in the forwards. A serum to Shore saw a set move rewarded with a try to Rogers under the posts. Unfortunately Riverview were to score two tries due to poor Shore defence and even though Shore was to finish on the Riverview line towards the end of the match, they were unable to score. The final score Round 4 Shore v. St Joseph's College Northbridge 14 August 1999 Result: St Josephs 21 def. Shore 17 (Rogers, N. Dickinson tries; Alexander conversion; Rogers field goal). This was a closely contested march. In the first half Shore totally dominated the opposition, retaining a staggering 65-70% of possession. Dickinson and Rogers scored two excellent team tries from set and phase play, one being converted by Alexander. Round 5 Shore v. Sydney High School Northbridge 21 August 1999 Result: Shore 21 (Collingwood-Boots, G. Dickinson, Irving cries; Alexander 3 conversions) def. High 14. The game against High was to be the first of three satisfying wins in the GPS competition. Both forwards and backs combined effectively at rimes to produce some good Rugby. Shore scored three tries co two in a game that was keenly contested by an opposition that were gallant in defeat. The final score Round 6 Shore v. Sydney Grammar School Northbridge, 28 August 1999 Result: Shore 48 def. Grammar 5. In the first half, Shore was able to play an expansive game and many wellconstructed tries were scored, both in the forwards and in the backs. Grammar, to their credit, were able to retain possession of the ball at rimes for many phases of play, however the Shore defence was ever present. It was only during the final stages of the match, when the serum had become uncontested due to a request from the Grammar coach, that Grammar were able to post a score. The final score was

198 Round 7 Shore v. Newington College Stanmore, 4 September 1999 Result: Shore _19 (Terrey, Lew tries; Alexander 3 penalty goals) def Newington 8 The last fixture of the season was to prove to be a game that did not reach any great heights due to disturbances that occurred throughout the second half. Shore went into the halftime break with a comfortable 16-3 lead thanks to tries by Terrey and Lew, coupled with the two penalty goals by counesy of Alexander 1 s boot. The second half saw the game degenerate somewhat so that it became a stop-start affair, due to penalties. Shore concentrated on playing rugby and won the game Second XV IG Blaxland, NJ Church, CW Ferguson, J French, MB Gribble, TJ Kingsmill, TL Mackellar (VC), NJA Marquez, PJ Owens, JP Reeve, HW Sare (C), TG Souris, MR Stewart, AC Swift, CG Tyrrell, EJ Wellings Also Played: Sl Bills, MVC Carroll, TGJ Gibson, AT Halstead, CL Stewart, )0 Symons The Second XV 1999 had an outstanding season, finishing third in the GPS competition. This result may not do justice to the amount of hard work that was put in during the season. Countless sprint sessions, visits to Chatswood Fitness and the beloved hill sprints, made the Second XV the fittest team in the competition, something they prided themselves on. The forwards, although not large, were never put to shame by the opposition. Losing only one tight head in the GPS competition the serum was at times a powerful weapon. Tom Kingsmill, Tom Mackellar and Thea Souris were a formidable front row. Kingsmill, although the youngest member of the team, often provided the team with motivation for brilliance. His huge left footstep often left the opposition in disarray. In the 'engine room 1 of the team Was Tommy Mackellar, also vice captain. Tommy was a player who thrived on pain as he was always the man to go the hardest and longest during all fitness sessions. Tom was a sound leader of the forwards giving examples of how to play with courage, inspiration and how to work at 100% from the beginning of the season to the end. Thea Souris was an extremely versatile player, switching from No. 8 to tight head prop on numerous occasions without a glitch. Thea was always very passionate about what he was doing, showing rremendous courage upon the paddock and at training. Edward Wellings and Jarrad French made up the second row, and an extremely talented lineout combination. Edward was a very reliable player, whether taking a hit up or stealing opposition ball in the lineout, it was always executed in fine style. The game against Scots was when French 1 s talent shone through not only as a talented jumper, but also as a powerhouse in running with the ball. jarrad's defence on the fringes was often underrated. Nick Marquez was at times one of the standout players in the team, managing to get a ball out of any situation. His defence was a highlight in 198

199 his game. Costa Swift had to overcome a fitness cloud to become an intolerable headache to the opposition, thriving on harassing the opposing five-eight. Marrin Gribble was the team's No. 8 and lineout thrower, and a character within the team, always managing to step up to the occasion. Marrin's motivation on the field set a precedent for mhers to follow. The backline early in the season was starved of ball, when the talent was realised the team gained an added dimension, which played a vital role in the team's success. In the game against High the backs finally gained the rewards they deserved, scoring all 60 points for the team. Malcolm Stewarr provided an excellent communication link between backs and forwards, and combined with his pin point passes he was a fearless halfback. Peter Owens was one of the success stories of the team, going from strength to strength. Pete harnessed all the attributes of a good five-eighth with an outstanding ability to avoid the opposing defence. The captain, Haig Sare, was a fantastic leader, allowing a vibrant character to develop within the team. He always led by example, producing some outstanding performances, which left the opposition wondering, especially when he scored three tries against Scots. Nick Church had a remarkable season in the Second XV. By the end of the season it was almost guaranteed that whenever Churchie got the ball he would break the line. Put together with rib-breaking defence, Nick Church often carried the weight of the team. On the two wings were Ian Blaxland and Jono Reeve. The pair made up for their lack of height with speed and determination, resulting in many tries. Coming into the team late in the season was the full back, Chrisco Ferguson, who proved to be an exciting player with great flair. Christo's ability to hit the line was outstanding. The Seconds were provided with fantastic support from the reserve bench. Particular mention must be made of Chris Tyrrell, who played in all but one of the GPS matches, running on to fill numerous positions and making a large impact on the side. His natural talent was witnessed against Newington when he scored three fantastic tries. Unfonunately injury got the better of a key member of the Second XV, Sean Bills, who always gave 100% when he ran on to the paddock; a great loss to the team. During any Rugby season, disappointment is encountered and the Second XV had its share, however it is the courageous and heroic moments that live on. The game against Scots will be remembered for the flair and creativity which was displayed in the win. Haig Sare played one of his finest performances scoring three tries; two different front rowers, highlighting the mobility of the forwards, also scored two tries. The following week Riverview became our victim in a close 8-7 win. The team defended tirelessly against a physical opposition yet never lapsed and came home with a hard fought victory. Newington had surprised everybody when in round three they drew with Kings. However the case was very different when they took on Shore. Prior to this game the team had not produced a performance reflective of their talent. Hunger and passion made the Second 199

200 XV unstoppable, crushing their opposition Unfortunately Kings and Joeys proved to be too strong, however these games provided valuable lessons for the team to build on. Best wishes and the best of luck to the boys for the future and many thanks for the season and the many memorable moments. Third XV A] Mathers, RP Thomas, H Parry Okeden, JCG Merriman, JE Staunton, NW Dorney, RWF Flaye, HT Locke, CL Stewart, BK Walker, JDW Symonds, MV Carroll, TJ Low, JO Peschardt, TR Waterhouse, JE Ronaldson, AT Halstead, MA Chave, WR Hattcrsley, SG Doughty The 1999 season was a memorable one for the Third XV. The side recorded 9 wins from 11 starts and scored 209 points while conceding only 51. This was a confident and talented team who entertained crowds with enterprising and exciting Rugby. They boasted an enormous pack of forwards with screngrh and experience. They laid the platform for the backs to use the ball in space and the 32 tries were evidence of much running Rugby and good use of the ball. The season was an especially enjoyable one. While success helps in establishing a good atmosphere in the team, this was certainly not the only ingredient. A mix of co-operation, good humour, focused determination and support for each other was evident throughout the year. The boys displayerl tremendous enthusiasm for the game. Their skill was very high and was evidence of great depth in the Opens age group. The boys were proud of the defensive record that was quickly established. They met some very tough opposition in the GPS season, but rose to the occasion and were never outclassed. In the early trial games, points flowed in some relatively easy wtns. These games gave the boys the opporrumty to work on their combinations and to develop a sryle that would suit the team. Fairly clear from the stan was the strength of the forwards and that it was from here that we would base our attacks on the oppositions w come. From this round of matches, the tries scored by Jack Peschardt at Knox and James Symonds against Barker were the most memorable. Most games in the GPS season were close, and none more so than the win against St Josephs at Northbridge. This game was only decided in the final seconds after a courageous fight by both teams. Shore began the match with ferocious intensity and a minimum of mistakes (a great contrast to their starts up to that point). Will Hattersley's boot kept Shore in front throughout, although things were very tense in the closing stages of the match. Conditions were very difficult with wind and rain in the second half. The Shore team was focused and spirited and displayed enormous courage in holding on to their lead to the bell. The boys were typically delighted to beat the old rival and deserved their victory. Equally tough although not as satisfying was the narrow loss to Kings in the Third Term. In the early stages of th.is game. the team gave a very good impression of a group of players with 200

201 their minds still on the holidays. A poor opening proved costly. Despite finishing stronger than their oppositi<?n! Shore bombed several chances to win the game and Kings held on to win The win against Riverview was not a convincing one. It was memorable only for Henry Parry-Okeden's steamrolling try to win the game in the final minutes. The try of the season, set up by Christo Ferguson and scored by James Ronaldson was the highlight of rhe win against Scars. In this game rhe boys did very well to recover from another poor start. They were up against a very powerful pack rhat threatened to dominate the conresr. Hayden Locke led the revival with punishing defence and effective work at the breakdown. The only hiccup after the Joeys win was a loss to the SJC 17As. This came about after leading 10-0 in the early stages, and was a result of a lack of concentration, perhaps as a result of a let down after the big win the week before. The final game of the season is worth mentioning. A 45-7 thrashing of Newington was an excellent way w complete the year, and for many in the team, their last game for Shore. It was a physical encounter, but the superior skill of the Shore outfit proved too much for the Stanmore boys. The game gave the team the opponunity to run the ball from all parts of the ground and there were some very attractive tries scored. James Ronaldson's 65-meue effon after some excellent lead up work was perhaps the best. Jeremy Staunton scored three tries in this match, all of which came from relentless pressure and excellent ball control from the forwards. The team was very well led by Andrew Mathers; his maturity and composure were appreciated. The boys played and trained with infectious enrhusiasm. They played the game as it should be; with spirit, passwn~ sportsmanship and enjoyment. Fourth XV AGF Sippe (C), HTM Quilter (VC), SR Campbell, AP Champion, SG Doughty, SO Gardner, JSA Gowing, HIM Holland, MJ Horin, BJ Isaac, NJ Larkworrhy, AR Meurer, MA Niall, jr Nivison, TJ Simpson, JDW Symons, HAR Tall, JG Tipney, AH Walker The Fourth XV was one of two sides at the School to complete the GPS season undefeated. The season started with five veterans, Adam Champion~ Tom Simpson, Ben Isaac, Matt Niall and Angus Sippe, returning for their second year in the Fourths. The side was superbly led throughout the season by Angus 'the mailman' Sippe who inspirationally turned in many man-ofthe-match performances with his flawless lineout jumping, telling hit-ups and bellringing tackles. He was ably supported by Tom 'Grandpa' Quilter who, as vice captain, organised the backs superbly and kicked important goals when needed. The rookies of the side were able to follow the examples set by 'Gus and Tom, and this laid the foundation for a most successful season. The pre-season went well with only one loss to Joeys 17 As. The holidays saw a rigorous training schedule bringing the team back fit and lean for the coming season then a couple of hard sessions brought them to optimal form. The team took the paddock against Kings with our 201

202 secret weapon, Hamish Holland, included in the front row for the first match. The first half was a game of brute strength; the serum being held secure by the mighty hooker Stu Doughty. The extra laps done in training under the watchful eye of'supercoach' Mr Meakins meant that our fitness levels were far superior to those of the opposition and we were victorious Our second game against Scots, saw injuries to several members of the team, but the late inclusion of Henry Parry Okeden with his super accurate lineout throwing saw that the team wasn't disadvantaged. Scots was no match for the fearsome Fourth XV. The charge was lead by Tommy Quilter, our courageous fly-half with his triple-dummy, double goose-step try. Isaac, Tall and Champion were punishing out wide, helping the side to a 24-0 win. The third game was the toughest match of the season against Riverview. The back-line had a few teething problems during this match and the onus was left to the forwards to set the platform for the win. Tom Simpson, Michael Horin and Hamish led the charge, and punishing forward hit-ups saw the Fourths home, due to the superb skill and support play of Ant Meurer who scored a- vital try with only minutes remaining. The Fourths then withstood some tremendous pressure in the dying stages of the game to win 8-7. Joeys and Shore met with both teams undefeated during the season. In fact it was rumoured that Joeys Fourths hadn't been beaten in some 20 years. But Shore Fourths were soon to change this statistic. The game started at a hectic pace and joeys led 13-3 going into the break, from a good try and two early penalties. During the half time talk, Mr Meakins fired up the team and it certainly worked, as the boys were able to turn things around in the second half. Robbie Tall then scored an unassisted 50-metre try to tie the game Sippe was unstoppable in lineouts, rucks and mauls, urging the side on to a possible upset victory, while Andrew Walker was tireless in support play and defence. Every counter attack by Joeys was nullified by the outside backs, led by the ever-reliable Ben Isaac. Shore received a penalty in the final minutes and the crowd watched as Quilter lined up the kick. He hit it perfectly and, as the tension mounted, the ball soared high and far, directly over the black-dot. Shore had won Sydney High was our next opponent. Both centres formed a lethal combination during the season with their devastating defence and strong running. The centres wove their magic against High with Simon Gardner pirouetting his way to the line after strong support by Adam Champion. The forwards were lead well by james Tipney and Mike Horin and their strong rucking and tough defence were a feature of the game, helping the side to a 50-3 victory. Grammar was unable to field a Fourth XV, which meant that the team had to do battle with joeys again! This time it was the joeys 17Bs and they were left wondering why they'd risen that morning. The 9.00am start suited the Fourths as they charged through the opposition. Sippe and Simpson once again dominated the lineouts, while Symons' scrummaging was relentless. The outside backs turned on some great attacking Rugby, leaving their opponents baffled. Niall's quick thinking and pace 202

203 saw him regather a chip over the top to score in the corner, surely one of the best individual tries of the season!. Jock Nivison, the serum half, ran from the serum base, dummied and stepped the back row and took off for the line, only to be cut down by the prop. His fluent delivery of the ball throughout the season helped to launch many back-line raids and he was rewarded for his efforts with a late second half try. Once again Mr Meakin's verbal skills during the halftime chat helped to lift the accomplished Fourths to their 38-0 victory. The English Dept would have been proud! The final match was against Riverview and it provided a great finish to a wonderful season. James Symons' beautiful lineout throws, Nick Larkworrhy's hunger for the ball and Johnny Gowing's superb control in the lineout allowed the backs plenry of clean ball. Ben Isaac was strong with his defence, quashing any breaks by the opposition and Matt Niall was powerful out wide with strong hit ups and backbreaking tackles. One memorable try saw Tom Simpson run 40 metres to beat the fullback and score, helping the side to a 28-0 win. Surely the rookie of the year was the under-rated blindside breakaway, James Tipney who was consistently solid in both attack and defence and showed enormous potential for the future. Overall the Fourths had great success and were undefeated throughout the season. Parents, boys and masters throughout the school talked of the team's entertaining style of football Once again thank you to all Fifth XV members who played as reserves throughout the season. Thanks must go to Mr Meakins for the great season with all the touch and bag work, his ability to make training enjoyable and then allow the team to turn it on for the day. Fifth XV CJ Coghlan (C), DR Chambers, MCB Clare, JC Gill, JSA Gowing, DL Hood, BK Jarman, EL Jones, MA King, JJ Liddle, TJ Meurer, NK Ozinga, SJL Rabe, AT Shaw, AP Souris, WA Stearn, TCS Sugden, JS Wilmott, SJC Wood Bill Stearn receives the ball in his own in-goal area and is not able to kick so he dummies and runs the ball out, reaching the 22-metre line, off-loading to Stew Wood who passes back inside to the waiting forwards in support who keep the ball alive before passing to Steve Rabe who plants the ball over the Newington line for one of his three tries in his final appearance for Shore. That was the highlight of a wonderful year for Shore Fifths with only one loss (3-5 to Riverview) from 11 games. It was also a reminder of the united effort involved in gaining such a record. Although we scored 4 7 tries over the season as a team, it was probably our defensive effort that was the secret of the success, with the Shore line being crossed on only five occasions. Certainly excellent defence resulted in rewarding wins over Kings, Riverview, a strong Scots side and joeys. The strength of Shore Rugby is probably best gauged at this level as we see some outstanding talents and skills on show. Cam Coghlan took seriously his task of leading this team and developed a keen eye for options in attack. The combination in the backline between Bill Stearn, Eddie Jones, Arie Souris and 203

204 Dave Chambers was a key to many tries. The skills and hard running of Stew Wood, Ben Jarman, Jez Gill and Wobbly Wilmott ensured that when the ball reached them, tries were not far away. The hard-working forwards ensured plenty of ball for the backs and developed a strong understanding of maintaining the ball. Muz Clare was our pocket-sized hooker who made ground and secured the ball while Jeremy Liddle and Tristan Sugden worked hard in tight, making frequent runs over the advantage line. Jono Gowing was valuable, particularly in the lineouts, and David Hood proved impassable at No. 2 in the lineout. 'T'he loose forwards were vital to the success of the team with Ant Meurer and Ali Shaw working busily at the breakdowns. Nick Ozinga and Steve Rabe were important additions to the team, working effectively with the established members. The mutual encouragement and absence of conflict within the team was vital to its success and made the season an exciting and pleasing one for all. It is to be hoped that all the boys will continue to enjoy their Rugby in the same spirit in future years. Sixth XV LP Almond, MRS Baggie, NS Baker, JM Croll, OF Cropley, JP. Deane, PJ Oebney, CL Hardy, DL Hood, AJF Maciver, TM Martin, JJT Nelson, BJ Noble, RJ Powell, ER Sanderson, OR Statham Possessing a balanced disposition which combined enjoyment with competitive vigour, the Shore Sixths had an excellent season which was, for many members of the team, a fitting conclusion to their Rugby careers at Shore. While the statistics clearly tell of a successful season (248 points for and only 97 points against), the true worth of this group of young men was reflected in their teamwork and commitment. While those who were fortunate enough to witness this ream in action will have many fond memories, for many, the true character of this team was typified by their clashes against St Ignatius College. Having lost 5-27 in the pre-season match, the Sixths were keen to avenge their loss when next they met. Weeks of intensive training combined well with a natural determination to bring victory in their GPS season match. And victory it was, with the close win of being a fitting testimony to two great teams. Who could forget the goodwill with which both teams came together at the end of the game? Instrumental in the team 1 s success were the forwards. Richard Powell and Tim Martin hit hard in serums and secured many a loose ball, while Ed Sanderson proved a reliable hooker and a consistent and effective lineout thrower. The second row was secured by the combined talents of Oliver Statham and Nick Baker while David Hood struck terror into every opposition when he decided to run off the serum and propel his enormous frame down the field. Mark Baggie too displayed remarkable skill and commitment at breakaway while Peter Oebney proved tenacious, never flinching from a tackle and loving every minute of it. After a hesitant start, the backs combined speed with skill to pull off some devastating moves leaving many opposition teams agog. Chris Hardy 204

205 improved both his feed and his kicking so that they both became crucial factors in the team's later victori~s..,..equally impressive was Ben Noble at five-eighth who proved to be an intelligent and effective play-maker. David Cropley played well at wing while Jamie Nelson was unstoppable when 'on the burst'. Luke Almond always had safe hands at fullback and read the play well. Andrew Maciver was always eager to take the lead and did well to play in several positions. Perhaps what really proved critical was the performance of the centres. Both John Deane and Captain Jason Croll had excellent seasons in attack and defence. They topped off what was a cohesive ream of eager and committed young sportsmen. The good humour with which the Sixths played and trained and the sense of team they engendered reflected well upon them all, as players and young men. Seventh XV T Lloyd (C), PJ Dennis, BR Larsen, TA Little, SC lvey, MD Brown, PA Hurrell, LF Tiller, RS Parris, JGS Montgomerie, SO Berry, RA Austin, PR Davidson, NW Holmes A Court, OJ Clare, OK Harper, TBL Arthur, TI French, MJ Flanagan, AT Hutchinson, JRE Pratten, JS Moles, JMA Wilson, JP Young, TG Wirih, SM Ealson, AO Underwood, SR Walkom, A.J Murray, AF MacDonald, CJ Scheen The most remarkable thing about this side was not the fact that they won certain games and lost others, but that they had fun and never stopped trying. There was no shortage of enthusiasm from each boy who literally begged for a run each Saturday. Training consisted of one day 1 s fitness in the gym coupled with a practice on Northbridge B Ground each Wednesday. Whilst we were not strong in the goal kicking department we made up for it in the number of tries scored for the total season, which was 28. Our first match against St Stanislaus Fourths was a close affair with Shore coming home strong in the final five minutes to win The following week our contest against Scots was not so fortunate, with our side going.d_own narrowly Keen to make amends for the previous week 1 s performance, Shore responded with a resounding win over Knox The final match before breaking for school holidays was between Shore and St joseph's College. Shore was unable to contain the five-eighth in the first half of the match. In the second half, Shore was the better side, tackling everything in sight. lt 1 s a pity we were not able to change the score around in our favour in the second half of the match. When we returned after holidays to play Kings Eighths we knew we were up against a tough side but happily we managed to hold on to win One week later we met Scots once again and were able to win 20-0, which was quite a change from the last match when we went down narrowly. Probably one of the hardest matches played was against St Josephs Tenths. Shore won this match with points scored by Marcus Flanagan and David Harper and it was certainly a well-earned victory. The four remaining matches against Riverview Sevenths; Kings Eighths; Knox Eighths and Riverview Eighths were all to end in vicwry for the opposition. 205

206 Basically both groups of boys from each school, every Saturday, played the game of Rugby with good sportsmanship. A most enjoyable season, and thanks to Mr Moun jed for his work in coaching the Sevenths. 16AXV RM Saunders (C), OM Lane (VC), JW Debney, SE Goodare, CT Gowing, WM Hunt, JDA Hutchinson, JW Luchetti, RC Mack, WA McCloy, OJ Moore, PN Pagan, NS Rose, SH Sevier, PJ Shirvington, TGO Smith, EH Tourle The As were faced with a number of challenges, not the least of which was the loss of six players to the First and Second XVs. This, along with a number of injuries to key players during the season, gave a wonderful opportunity for some less experienced but highly talented players to perform in the top team in their age group for the first time. It also meant that matches that had been easily won in the past, were now a serious struggle and this often brought the best out in individuals and in the whole team. The front row was dominated by four players, the equal of any they came up against. Rob Saunders, captain, began the season at flanker but moved to hooker where he played a tight and effective game, winning ball at the breakdown and making successful surges through the opposition pack. Injury put him out for a few games later in the season and this affected his fitness and confidence considerably. The remainder of the front row were Rob Mack, David Moore and Tim Smith, all of whom played consistemly well. David Moore also was unfortunate that shoulder injury marred his otherwise excellent season. In the second row, Steve Sevier and Will McCloy played nearly every match together. They were tremendous in the lineouts, Will often able to steal opposition ball thrown to the front. Steve was a leader by example in the team, always setting the standard with fitness, strength and commitment. The back row consisted of Will Hum and Peter Shirvington as flankers and Nick Rose at No. 8. Will was a terrific ball winner at the breakdown and as lineout jumper, whilst Peter 1 s harassment of che opposition and vigorous defence were tremendously effective. Nick played a tight game a< No. 8 but was a good player, taking <he ball forward in tight situations and contributing to a successful lineout. Steve Goodare, at halfback, had an excellcm pass and defended extremely well. When he used his ability to run, he found that also to be a <alent. At fly half, Pie Hutchinson was rock solid in defence and whilst often reluctant to use his own running skills, provided smooth service for his outside backs. David Lane had the ability to run and look for support during <he season and his calling of plays for the last few weeks as vice captain was excellent. His powerful running was inspirational w the team. Elliot Tourle was injured for the first half of the season and then returned to play fullback but found that his attacking skills could be better utilised at outside centre. He has great speed and a big kick but would be disappointed with the inconsistency that he showed with the boot. On the wings were Jon Oebney, a fast and elusive runner, Chris Gowing and Jack Luchetti. Chris and Jack were both <atally committed in defence and practically 206

207 unstoppable from 10 metres out from the opposition line. Peter Pagan began the season at :Ay half when Pie Hutchinson was injured, moved to outside centre and finished at full back. In all positions he was one of the most reliable on the field, a strong and elusive runner with a powerful kick and reliable defence. Peter scored some excellent tries during the season. In terms of results, there were some great wins, some hard fought successes and some disappointing losses. Big wins over Oakhill, Scots, Grammar and High were very satisfying. The narrow win over Riverview in the second match was probably the high point. It was a victory that was thoroughly deserved when the team was most committed and never gave in, eventually winning from behind. Disappointing losses were against Barker 3-5, Riverview (first game) 3-7, Kings 10-15, and Newington 5-7. In all of these marches we were the better team for parr or most of the match but a lack of concentration and a period of laziness allowed the opposition to sneak ahead. All of them could and should have been won. Only in the ]oeys match were we well beaten (18-0), but even then an intercept try and two penalty goals made the score look much worse than it should have been. A little more experience and the close results could have come Shore's way. The defensive record of the team was outstanding, conceding very few tries, several of which were created by our own mistakes. When on a roll, Shore made some superb play, perhaps the last try against High being the best example, an end-to-end try built up over numerous phases of play. It was a greatly enjoyable season because the players played with the appropriate levels of fun mixed with commitment. Mr Fitzgerald and the 16Bs deserve the thanks of the team for their support at training and for the willingness w provide reserves for the many injuries that the As suffered. 168 XV J FitzherbertSmith, AC Hunt, RC Mack, LC Gray, T Arnott, DO Clark, M Richards, GH Keatinge, SA Carson, MJ Anderson, JT Kellett, LW Richmond, MEG Parker, CT Gowing, NCF Gay, ]AS Druce Also played: CR Hosking, CR Cornforth, DR Ellis, JM Buchan, A] Biffin, B Hewlett The 16Bs had a very difficult season for a variety of reasons. One was that several players in the age group were promoted into the Opens division. Another was the number of difficult matches the team had to face. In a three-week period, the ream played Riverview, who were a good side, and then backed up and played a very strong ]oeys outfit twice in two weeks. This made it very tough for all the players. Despite this difficult draw, the 16Bs had a solid and rewarding season. The trial matches produced some very encouraging results. Wins over St Stanislaus, Barker and Riverview, and a narrow loss to Knox demonstrated that the ream possessed a lot of potential to do well in the matches ahead. What was also encouraging throughout the trial matches was that the ream was developing into a good cohesive unit. This was due in part to the outstanding leadership shown by both the captain, Sam Carson, and vice captain, Daniel 207

208 Clark, both in trainmg sessions, and at matches. Team training sessions leading up to the competition matches were very intense. To the players 1 credit, they worked incredibly hard to build up skill and fitness levels to ensure readiness for the tough competition matches ahead. The opening game against Kings was a tough match, and the Kings side was both a physical and determined outfit. In the first half, Shore stuck to their game plan and dominated territory. Solid Jineout play by the second rowers of Gray and Arnott ensured a mountain of possession for Shore. In some great phase play by the forwards, Richards scored the first try which was unconverted. Soon after, a successful penalty goal by Gay pushed the score to 10-0 in favour of Shore at the half time break. The second half saw the Shore forwards dominate possession and build a solid platform from which to attack the Kings line. In a classic backline move, Anderson produced a beautifully executed pass to put Gay in for a try under the posts. The try was converted and the score was Towards the end of the game the Kings side never gave up and posted a converted try and a penalty goal to bring the final score to to Shore. This was a memorable win and a tremendous confidence boost for the team. The second competition march was against Scots and Shore starred strongly and was never pressured. Carson was injured for this match and Clark took over the captaincy and did a magnificent job. He led by example and was recognised by many as best on ground for the match. The final score was 48-0 to Sho~e. The encouraging aspect of the match against Scots was the enhanced confidence and skills demonstrated by a number of players in the ream including Kellett, Gay, Hunt, Richmond and the two second rowers, Gray and Arnott. The only negative factor of the game was the unfortunate injury to Druce, who had been playing outstanding Rugby. This injury forced him our for the remainder of the season and his vision in the midfield was sorely missed by the ream. The third match was against Riverview. In the first half, the Riverview side played some intelligent running Rugby, which put them in the lead by A great conversion by Gay put the score at the half time break at 10-3 to Riverview. The second half saw a number of strong attacking raids conducted by Shore, which presented a number of golden opportunities. Unfortunately Shore could not convert them into points, and thus the final score remained 10-3 to Riverview. The team was very disappointed and certainly realised that this match was the one that got away. Despite this, some players had impressive games including Clark, Carson, Kellett, Gay, Hunt, Gray and Richards. The next match was against joeys where the better side was allowed ro take control of proceedings early. Joeys played great attacking Rugby to which Shore had no answer. The final score was 29-3 to Joeys. After a tough week, physically and mentally, the next match was also against Joeys. This was going to be a particularly tough game considering what happened the week before. The score in this match was similar (35-0) to Joeys, however Shore played with tremendous spirit and never gave up. The improvement from 208

209 the previous week was huge and the score did not reflect the closeness of the game. Although a very good side beat us, Shore played some of their best Rugby of the season. Our next competition match was against St Pars, Srrarhfield. This was a very rough march for Shore with a number of disruptive incidences of undisciplined play from the opposition. The forwards however dominated possess1on, and the backs made a number of impressive raids. In the second half, Shore continued to apply pressure which resulted in a good try ro Hosking after some great phase play by the forwards. Gay converted the rry which saw Shore ~ush out to a 7-0 lead. Despite Shore dominating play, St Pats scored 1n the corner and were unsuccessful in their conversion attempt. Shore held off St Pats and the full time score was a 7-5 win to Shore. The final marc;h of the season was against Newington. After the previous week's tough enc.ounter, Shore were ready to finish the season on a strong note. The forwards starred strongly and built up some go<?d phase play from which the backs co_uld attack. Although dominating possess~on in the first half, Shore could not break the Newington line and the score at the half time break was 0-0. In the second half, Shore again started strongly and this time they converted opportunities into points. The try came after some good forward play combined with some _intelligent thinking by the backs and a classic flat line pass by Kellett to put Parker over for a try in the corner. I r was a classic team try and one of the best of the season. Gay converted and the score was 7-0 to Shore. Just as the game seemed to be in Shore's grasp, Newington scored a try against the run of play in the corner. The try was unconverted and the score was 7-5 to Shore. The last 10 minutes of the match were intense with both teams producing some good phase play. There was no further score in the match however, and a relieved Shore ream finished the season with a well-deserved victory. Best players for Shore included Keatinge, who throughout the season showed tremendous potential at No. 8, Clark, Carson who played five eight in this game, Arnott, Hewlett, Kellett, Gay, Richards, Richmond and Ellis.. Overall, the season was a successful one for all concerned. There is much potential for some of this team to do well in the Open division next year. The parents are thanked for the tremendous support given to both the players and the coach throughout the season. In addition, thanks are due to the 16As coach, Mr Morrison, for firstly treating the 16As and 16Bs as one squad, and secondly, for the efficient organising and conducting of useful training sessions. These sessi_ons have assisted in giving the players a wider skill base, which they can use in the future. 209

210 16C XV JM Buchan, H Burton Taylor, CRJ Cornfonh, CM Ellis, OR Ellis, RA Fox, WPC Gray, BH Hamblw, TP Hearl, GR Henderson, BJ Hewlett (C), CRS Hosking, EJ Jamison, GH Keatinge, OJ MacPhillamy, BL Newling, CS Perry, JAK Prince, SH Purcell, WOO Sturrock The 16Cs had a mixed season. After winning five of the first six games, the only loss being 7-12 to Kings, the side ran into a very tough final series of games: two each against Riverview and St Josephs, and a game against St Patricks. In these fixtures, they only managed to defeat the St Patricks side, thereby finishing the season with six wins and five losses. Nevertheless it was a very enjoyable team to coach and watch, evidenced by the fact that of the 27 tries scored by the team, 26 were by backs, and the majority were by the outside backs. And despite the fact that 35 players played for the 16Cs during the season, there was always a great sense of team harmony and spirit, and players moved positions and adjusted remarkably easily. The fullback position was filled at various times by John Buchan, George Henderson and Chris Cornfonh. John is a gifted runner who always strives to beat his man first time. Safe under a high ball, he also possesses a good boot which he used to good effect. George Henderson was very safe in defence, and loved running the ball back at the opposition. Perhaps George's greatest strength (and fruscration?) was his versatility. He moved easily between the pack and the outside back and did so without a hint of complaint. He possesses a quiet, whole- hearted determination, and these attributes made him a pleasure to have in the side. Chris Cornforth has a great deal of potential, and found himself playing the final games of the season at fiveeighth. He is a skilled footballer, with vision and excellent hands. He should look forward to next season with confidence. Craig Perry and Chris Hosking played on the wings for most of the season, and scored a number of tries through sheer pace and acceleration. Both know how to search out the try line, and each simply needs to develop the confidence to leave his wing from time to time in search of the ball. In the centres, Will Gray and Doug MacPhillamy were solid in defence, and hard and straight running in attack. Will has the ability to put players into gaps, and runs very straight at all times. Doug's defence was very good throughout the season, and he was a fully committed member of the side. Ben Hewlett, who was the regular captain of the team, began the season in the unaccustomed position of fiveeighth. He learned the position well, but just as he was mastering it, found himself moved back to the more familiar position of halfback. He has boundless enthusiasm and determination, and set an excellent tone as captain. Hugh Burton Taylor and Sam Purcell vied for the halfback position for the bulk of the season. Different styles of players, they were both effective in different ways, and the team was well served by each. The No. 8 position was filled by several players, but towards the end of the season Rohan Fox had claimed it as his own. He has pace and great hands which were an asset in the line out. 210

211 David Ellis, Ben Newling and Charles Ellis played most of the games on the side of the serum, and each proved to be efficient at the breakdown and keen to be involved at all times. David certainly deserved his games in the 16Bs, while both Ben and Charles were exemplary in their attitude and commitment. Brad Hamblett and Ed Jamison were second row partners. While both were skilled and mobile, Brad put much needed size to the serum, and Ed proved particularly strong in the line out. The front row varied from week to week, but for the most part Tim Hearl and john Prince propped, while Will Sturrock played hooker. Tim, always full of good humour, was a good scrummager who also threw into the lineout at various rimes during the season. John, in his first year of Rugby, showed a great deal of potential, and is very mobile for a front rower, as was evident in the game against High. Will was very effective in tight play, and his enthusiasm was a real asset to the team. In all, the season was one of contrasts. Strong wins were offset by two heavy defeats at the hands of St Josephs, but in all there was generally a very positive feeling at training. There are a number of players with the ability to play a very good level of rugby in the Opens, and it is hoped that all make the most of their final year's football at Shore. 160 XV JA Bennett, H Burton-Taylor, PJ Derrin, CM Ellis (C), ATW Farkash, MYM Gibson, JW Hammond, MJ Harrington, TJ Howell, DR Jenkin, HKL Johnstone, MT Lark, AJ Lee, WHL Long, PA Lynar, ]A Murray, IF North, MJ Parsons, TR Preston, JAG Purcell, WJ Ross, TOR Short, AJ Ul, AW Wade, MI Wood Ryman The 16Ds started the season strongly with wins over St Stanislaus Bs, Cranbrook Bs, Scots Cs and Riverview Es. Knox mismatched us with their Es and the I 07-nil result with Shore winning speaks for itself. The best Rugby the team played was early in Term III against Kings when the blistering pace in the first half left the opposmon stunned. Unfortunately halfway through the season things began to decline. A mass of injuries to this team and higher teams caused disruption. Wilson Long needed a knee reconstruction, Tim Howell hurt his ankle, Peter Lynar and Adam Lee both broke their collarbones at inside cenue and were followed by the next centre, Peter Derrin, who caught glandular fever! Losses to ]oeys, Riverview (twice) and High Bs came rolling together. However, the team concluded the season by salvaging a I 0-6 wm against Newington Cs to end on a more positive note. Michael Wood-Ryman and Jeremy Bennett formed a loud and aggressive front row. The hooker's role was filled firstly by Henry Johnstone and then David Jenkin who adapted well from halfback. James Hammond was a strong, tight-playing second rower and Ian North also filled this position on occasions. The back row kept us competent against some more capable opposition teams. Charles Ellis was cxcellem at this level and deserved his promotion to the Cs. Alex Wade was versatile and enthusiastic. Anthony Ul was aggressive and strong. Alex F arkash 211

212 was unswppable from the.base of the serum when he was close w the line. Hugh Burton-Taylor and Jeff Purcell filled the halfback role and were the standout players in the backs. Billy Ross had good hands at five-eight. Tom Preston, Matthew Gibson and Michael Harrington worked hard in the centres, and Tim Short and Jamie Murray provided some good running on the wings. ~1ichael Lark converted to fullback from the forwards and scored a great try against High Bs. The end scoreline for Shore was seven wins and four losses and the team never complained despite all of the disruptions. However, given that l\!lichacl Parsons had suffered a serious illness midway through the season this overshadowed many thoughts of Rugby for much of l'erm Ill. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with Michael and the Parsons family. 16EXV& 16FXV MR Anderson, HB Ballard, JF Belfield, JGH Blanch (C), MGJ Cook, J Debenham, AG Oteverman, LC Forbes, DYW Gibson, J Harrington, DA Hercus, BC Hutchings, HKL Johnstone, HA Jones, WRJ Kierath, JR Moore, IF North, JH Polkinghorne, SJ Puskar, SJ Rheinhardt, ER Robinson, JG Smith, AE Spring, MI Stackpool, TGJ Worledge In Term II only the 16Es existed but as numbers swelled to approximately 27 it was decided that a 16Fs would also play in Term III. The large number of injuries and onset of illness early i~ the term left the squad reduced w 20 or so and hence many boys had to play two games in order for us to fulfil our commitments. The willingness of the boys to do this, often having to travel to different grounds, was fantastic and all deserve congratulations on the effort they made. The shortage of players also affected some of the results, particularly later in the season. Early on both teams were very competitive but towards the end we struggled. Often the results were still close but being short in a few key positions probably cost us matches. Props Huw Jones, Will Kierath, Harrison Ballard and Seth Rheinhardt all scrummaged well and liked to run with the ball, and the hookers, Mike Cook and Henry Johnstone, were always in the thick of things. Mitchell Anderson, Andrew Dreverman and Jordan Smith were the locks and they contributed significantly in different ways on the field. The back rowers, David Hercus, James Moore, James Polkinghorne, Alistair Spring and Tristan Worledge all tried hard and got around the field fairly well. John Blanch at serum half gave good service and tackled like a champion. Stefan Puskar, Ed Robinson and Ben Hutchings each played fly half and various other positions and they all displayed good skills. Cenues, Michael Harrington and josh Belfield, were always willing to rake on the opposition, and wingers, David Gibson, Ian North and Lucas Forbes, frequently made ground running out wide. Justin Debenham was very solid at fullback whilst Miks Stackpool and Johnathon Isaac had. limited opport~nities due to InJUry. Most of the players in the 16Es and Fs squad enjoy the game and it is to be hoped that they will work hard on their 212

213 fitness during the off season and maimain their enthusiasm for the Opens next year. Some boys have the potential to do very well. I SA XV AJ Bischoff, SJ Chambers, AS Dickin, LHF Dunn, DRH Fisher, RG Goninan, Captain; AJ Hattersley, NP Marshall, SMD Mathews, BR Murgatroyd, Cj Newling, OD Oberg, ST Peschardt, JPD Roberts, AR Smyth-Kirk, NB Studdy, JDP Wills The!SA side finished the season having played 11 matches, winning six of them, drawing two and losing three matches. This excellem record reflects the commitment, skill and guile of the boys, qualities that were apparent in no small measure throughout the season. This record also satisfies the goal of the team and coach at the beginning of the season, which was to improve on the win/loss record that had been set the previous year. Ralph Goninan captained the team and his leadership was exemplary throughout the season. The willingness of any boy who was asked to play in an unaccustomed position was also a feature of the team. Ben Murgatroyd, Sam Peschardt, James Roberts, Dillon Fisher and Nick Marshall did so regularly, without question and each did extremely well in whatever role he had been asked to fulfil. Tuesday and Thursday afternoon training sessions were normally productive and were occasionally lighthearted. On one occasion when the practice of a Rugby skill by one player was criticised by the coach, the comment was reinforced by two kookaburras perched on a nearby goalpost crossbar who started to 1 1augh 1 'T'his provided the coach with the opportunity to observe that even the birds found these efforts less than serious. This same player is now proficient in the execution of this particular skill and is indeed a fine all round player. Once again, all of the boys in this team exhibited rhe highest level of sportsmanship throughout the season and are a credit to their parents and to the School. The high standards of conduct and play, which they have set, will stand them in good stead in future years. Expressions and thanks and gratitude go to two Old Boys, Dash Swift and Jonno Bowman, for their assistance at a number of training sessions. Thanks also to Mr Chris Hickman for the assistance, encouragement and words of wisdom that he offered to our backline players in the course of the year. Appreciation is also expressed to all the parents, relatives and friends of the boys for their continued support throughout the season. To the boys who represented the 15As this year, the best of luck in future Rugby endeavours at Shore. 158 XV SB Long, JN Mailman, AR Irving, MR Tasker, BM jennings, MPL King, SE Niall, TR Rees, BG Wirth, NJ Colyer, BRH Fisher (C), AW Ryder, TS Whiteway, JR Pfeiffer (VC), SC Copeman, NR Mace, BR Murgarroyd, TH Shore 213

214 The 1999 season was a tough one in many respects. Shocking injuries co Bertram Lee and Adam Van der Sluys (broken legs) and David Brown (shoulder) in the early part of the season robbed the side of much needed depth. Nevertheless chis provided opportunities for others to show their wares. The side had a very tough draw, coming up against Riverview three times and the powerful Joeys team twice during the season. Despite this, the determination shown by the boys, often against much bigger opponents was impressive. The nucleus of the team remained intact and had formed quite a good combination by season's end. Ben Fisher, as skipper, was always involved, driving the forward pack and providing excellent service to the backs. Jon Pfeiffer, whose ball skills and clever runmng always troubled opposing backlines, ably supported him. The forward pack worked well together. The front row of Sam Long, Jordan Mailman and Andrew Irving all showed potential, and cemented places in the side with strong performances throughout the season. Matt Tasker, Matt King and Ben Jennings were hard working and reliable in the second~row. Sam Niall, Tom Rees and Ben Wirth were outstanding backrowers. Their speed, commitment and enthusiasm were evident in each game. In the backline, Fisher and Alex Ryder developed a solid combination. Alex always defended bravely, and delivered excellent ball to his support players. Pfeiffer, Nick Colyer and Stephen Copeman provided strength and stability in the mid-field. Copeman deservedly forced his way into the side with some suong running in the Cs. Nick Mace, Tim Whiteway and Tim Shore provided speed and flair out wide. Mace showed his versatility by playing an outstanding game at halfback against Riverview. He is a great encourager and communicator on the football field. Ben Murgatroyd added a touch of class to the backline. He was always dangerous in attack, using his step to great effect, and his defence was inspirational. The sportsmanship displayed by this team was impressive and they formed into quite a good combination. As they mature physically they will be a handful for some of the more fancied sides. Congratulations to the boys for the commitment and enthusiasm they displayed during the season and best wishes for every success in the future; your progress will be followed with much interest. Finally many thanks to the parents who gave support each week. 15C XV MJD Bentivoglio, MJC Bradd, PJC Bradd, J Broadfoot, HJ Burridge, WC Clifton, SC Copeman, HE Creighton, SM Dixon, GS Gatehouse, CPW Gatfleld, PC Hadley, BD Hill, TJ Howell, TJ Little,.JN Mailman, GE Parker, TM Parker, JC Richards, TH Shore, WJH Smiles, A VanDer Sluys, CS Westgarth This team had a tough year which will serve them well in the future. A few GPS schools no longer let their 'C' team play our 'C' team. This means that basically these Shore men had one hard game after another and quite often they played against 'B' teams. In Term III there were two outstanding matches. The men lined up 214

215 against a very big and undefeated Kings team. The first half was a grinding struggle for domination. Ben Hill scored an exciting uy to turn the tide in Shore 1 S favour. Shore never took the pressure off the excellent Kings team and eventually won a very impressive victory. Our last match was against the Grammar 15B team. Shore had played this team a few weeks earlier and had learnt that they were a very strong and fast team and this week they also had some 1 A' players. Captain Tom Howell led his men brilliantly. He was practically perfect in the lineouts and was an inspiration all over the field in both attack and defence. The team had already lost quite a few players through injury over the Term and they lost a few more as the game progressed against their bigger opposition. Hugh Creighton was playing with great courage and impact until he suffered a painful broken ankle. Despite having a patched up team with quite a few men up from our team, the men continued to play with great courage. They were beaten on the day but finished the season with a heroic effort about which they should feel very proud. The team would like to express their appreciation to Mr Andrew Stewart for the times he came and trained the forwards. His expertise and kindness really made a difference to a team that has quite a number of players who will probably go on to play for the First XV. lsd XV SI Clarke, TJ Quinn, H Burridge, JF Jarrett, AJG Wilson, NJ Black, J]A Fyfe, WBJ Frew, MP Coghlan, HW Roxburgh, CS Westgarth, AD Hopkins, SO] Edwards, NBF Storey, AC Leslie, NR Pride, RMC Harris, B] Swaddling, SG McCausland, MM Holmes, TJ Paramor The 1999 season proved to be hard and long. The side played a number of games against higher-grade reams, which were generally bigger and more skilled. Consequently, a spate of injuries, rare at this level, impacted further on the number required and used to replace injured players in reams above, and which dramatically reduced the playing strength of the 15 Ds. Given this difficult scenario, the boys did well to win three matches (Barker 15-12, Knox 41-0, Grammar Cs 17-5) from 11 starts and to suffer narrow losses to High B (10-22) and to Kings D (5-12). In all other games the team remained competitive to the half time break. However, as the concentration required to maintain unending defence while constantly going backwards waned, the ability to withstand further pressure took its natural path and toll. The side suffered heavy defeats against St Stanislaus B (0-29), Riverview (0-27), Scots C (0-36), St Josephs (0-50) and Newington C (0-33). One can only be proud of the manner these lads stuck to the task and the enthusiasm displayed at training. Hugh Burridge took on the responsibility of organising the forwards and did so in fine style. The entire backline tried hard at all times and will improve as they physically mature. Wingers of the calibre of Nick Storey, Shaun McCausland and Stuart Edwards have a fine future in the game. Jeremy Fyfe and Will Frew threw everything into their work at the back of the serum while Hugh Roxburgh and 215

216 Adam Leslie never took a backward step at fly half and fullback respectively. With more confidence Jake Jarrett will be a quality lock. The attitude shown by the lads in difficult circumstances can only be applauded. ISE XV E Arnott, A Begg, T Brennan, J Bright, A Chivers, C Colwell, J Gourley, T Gow Gates, R Harris, H Irving, C Knox, R Loader, R Loader, D Millen, S Ronald, S Richards, B Schulze, A Tan, J Wraight, B Wallman Also played: N Black, S Clarke, M Coghlan, S Edwards, W Frew, A Leslie, N Pride, B Swaddling There were nearly enough players for an F grade team this year. Consequently, the best 15 players were rarely on the field at one time, and we were really fielding an ElF side. As about 23 players were usually present, a complicated procedure was necessary to ensure that all had some time on the field. From the record of this age group it was quite clear that they would have great difficulty in winning half their matches against their own grades. The goals for the season, therefore, were not so much to win as many games as possible, as to provide the whole squad with the experience of a season of Rugby Union, to teach as many basic skills as possible, and to promote the enjoymem of the game. In this respect, M r Legge, who gave up an extra afternoon to train them in addition to his own team, welded the forwards into a unit. The season opened with a loss to St Stanislaus 15B side- a mismatch. Shore did well to hold them back to The Barker 1SE game was a short march as the opposition had only 10 men but refused to make up the numbers with some of Shore's players (we had 23). Eventually, they found two more and the game began; 12-a-side affair. In a controversial result, Shore lost Nick Black scored a try and Jeremy Fyfe scored two tries and a goal and was immediately promoted to the 15Ds. Against Knox 15E, Shore won 35-S, the forwards having dominance. Jeremy Bright (2), Simon Clarke, Andrew -nm and Richard Harris scored tries from the pack, while Ben Swaddling scored two from backline moves. St Ignatius Es were too strong, and ran in eight tries to none-a 48-0 loss. The team 1 s best game was against Kings Es at Doyle. The forwards kept the ball alive brilliantly with flick passes, reverse passes, pick-and-drive and rolling mauls, sometimes swinging the ball wide - resulting in tries to David Millen and Simon Clarke in the forwards, and Stuart Edwards and Ben Swaddling in the backs- a 24-7 win. Scots 150 ream, at Centennial Park, as expec(ed, were at least a grade too high for the Shore E and F combination. Rory Loader scored to prevent a whitewash, and the final result was For the match against SIC at their Prep ground, the team was heavily depleted. The strong Riyerview side romped in 36-5, scoring six tries to our one by Stu Edwards. The St Josephs!SE. march was also tough, made all the tougher by the promotion of key players like Nick Black, Willie Frew and Stu Edwards. St Josephs ran in seven tries to none; a 39-0 defeat. The next match was also agciinst Joeys- 216

217 this time their F Grade, and this time at the College. Shore played with determination, and David f\1illen bro~e his arm making a brave tackle. The result was closer (5-17), St Josephs F scoring three tries to Jeremy Bright's one (Rory Loader 1 s try being ruled as over the dead ball line). After a week without practice or a game (the Barker match was washed out) the final match of the season was played at Newington College against their D Grade side. Shore had barely IS players for this match, and the result was predictable-a heavy loss, Though losing all bur rwo games, every player had an opportunity to enjoy Rugby for ar least parr of each march and they are to be congramlated for retaining their enthusiasm. 14AXV JJ Baker, CWS Ching, LJ Davis, MKD Hall, OA Hankin, RT Lark, AM Low, RTS Mathews, TO Millar, DR McNeill, SO Parsons, AR Perry, JDM Pixley, AJ Smith, PA Vines, DA Walton The 14As, after a slow start to the season, finished strongly to end with an impressive record in the GPS matches. The boys should be particularly proud of the improvement they made as a ream, after suffering heavy defeats against Barker and Knox in rhe Term II marches. To finish the season with a record of six wins, two draws and only three losses was particularly pleasing for all those involved. It was indicative of the raw talent in the team, and the members willingness to apply themselves ar training and in matches. Many teams, after successive defeats against Barker and Knox, would have found the prospect of playing Riverview at Riverview a daunting prospect, but to the boys 1 great credit they took the challenge head on, and managed to emerge victors with a hard fought 6-5 WIO. The commencement of Term Ill saw matches against Kings ahd then Scots, where the team started to develop a pattern of hard, driving forward play to win possession, and spreading the ball wide for rhe outside backs, Perry, Pixley and Smith. This formula worked successfully and, combined with the excellent defensive skills in the centres of Ching and Lark, rhe team won both matches. The next march against Riverview was always going to. be tight, with Riverview eager to exact revenge for the close Term II game. The resulting draw was probably a fair indication of the performance of both reams on the day, where we kept in touch with Riverview thanks to- the boor of five-eighth and captain, Dave Walton who scored all the points for Shore. The 0-15 result against Joeys was probably our weakest defensive effort where we allowed a couple of soft tries to be scored, but to their credit the boys fought back in the following weeks against High, and then Grammar, to record impressive wins. The final match, against Newington, was the one march where perhaps we could feel disappointed with the result. Shore dominared possession and territory, but could not cross the line ending the match 0-0, after two penalty goal attempts hit the upright. The dominance of possession in this match was indicative of the dominance of our forwards, with the set pieces being won thanks to rhe hard work of the tight five, 217

218 Vines, Millar, Hall, Davis, and McNeill, and the backrow of Mathews (coming back from injury), Low, and Parsons, gaining second phase ball. The work of the front row, Vines, Hall and Millar improved greatly as the season progressed, and the second rowers, McNeill and Hankin, secured an enormous amount of quality lineour ball. Ic was a pity that Hankin suffered injury in the second last march of the season, as he was one of the big improvers in the team. jarred Baker at half back developed his passing, so that in the later games in the season, the backline got moving much earlier with the ball finding the hard running Perry, and the elusive Pixley, and giving them room to move. Baker was fearless in taking on the opposition, and his talking to the forwards spurred them on in numerous games. Walton, Ching and Lark are all talented players who should perform well in the future. Low was courageous in the back row, taking on players twice his size, and Sam Parsons displayed good skills. It was a pity that our early season captain, Mathews, was injured so early on, as the ream missed his strong running with the ball. Davis, a raw talent, could be a great asset to teams in the future, given his athleticism. It was a successful and enjoyable season in the 14As, and the players involved are to be congratulated on their efforts. 148 XV JW Lugsdin, LEF Williams, JA Forsythe, BP Fletcher, EJJ Arthur, RPE Blanch, A] Kraeft, A] Hopkins, MCR Bennett, CV Stanley, HD Mawter, AGJ Dodds, ACJ Bowden, DAG Kimber, B R Sherry The 14Bs had quite a difficult season for many reasons. One was that a total of 30 players appeared for the Bs because of injuries and illnesses throughout the season so it was quite hard to train as a team let alone have the same side on the paddock two weeks in a row. The second was that due to the draw, the boys played a strong Riverview and Joeys teams five times and the Oakhill As to start the season. However, despite these adversities, the boys were never negative and they are ro be commended for this. The 14Bs acquitted themselves well on the paddock and played well in patches. The team won three matches and the potential is there for further improvement next year. Their greatest downfall was their sluggishness at the start of the games. Invariably they allowed the opposition to get off to an unbeatable halftime lead, only to hold their own or overpower their opponents in the second half. With greater maturity and fitness they will improve this aspect of their play. There were several very good individual performances. In the forwards, Ed Arthur had an outstanding season. With his height and size we were able to win the majority of lineout ball and this was backed up with four tries during the season. Cliff Stanley is an extremely versatile backrower, scoring some excellent tries. Ben Fletcher developed strongly as the season progressed, as did Hugh Mawter, the cornerstone of the front row. In the backs Alex llopkins played some sensational football in attack and 218

219 defence, well supported by Rob Blanch at halfback and Daniel Kimber at inside centre. The spirit, enthusiasm and attitude of all the players who participated during different periods of the season, both at training and on the field, were excellent. They should look forward with confidence w the seasons ahead as being part of a good age group at Shore. Thanks also to all the parents who supported the team on Saturday morning; their efforts were greatly appreciated by the boys. 14C XV AD Cahill, RC Copeman, JM Corrie (C), OW French, DCE Gill, NBS Hale, RJB Henderson, LOY Kramar, GT Little, NA Martin, TJB Medway, DG Pope, JP Rochlin, DLH Storey, SB Tilbury, CP Van Schalkwyk, AW Wellings, CD Yeates The team had a successful season winning seven games from 11 played. They showed a good knowledge of the game and their skills improved as the season progressed. The highlights were undoubtedly the hard-fought wins against Kings and St Josephs. Our first game was played against St Stanislaus Bs. The boys ran the ball well using the full width of the field. This was rewarded with an impressive 48-7 win. The backs scored six of the team's seven tries. We continued our pleasing start to the season with another easy win against Barker. The scoreline of 31-0 included all five tries being scored by our backs indicating once agam good ball movement. The next game against Knox was one of the most disappointing of the season. We controlled possession for most of the game and were continually in the opposition 1 S terriwry. Unforrunately we could not convert this pressure imo points and ended up losing the game 5-10 after leading 5-0 at half time. The following week the team was feeling a bit flat after the previous week 1 s loss. They also knew they were about w take the field against Riverview who had defeated Knox 61-0 a couple of weeks earlier. They started the game well and were pressing the opposition 1 s line straight after the kick-off. We were only down by two tries at half time. The first half obviously rook the wind out of our sails as Riverview piled on the points in the second half ro win The team went into the holiday break determined w forget what mrned out w be by far our worst performance of the season. At the start of Term III we played one of our best games of the season w defeat Kings After our disappointing game at the end of Term II we decided to go back to basics. The forwards hit the ball up well, constantly making good territory gains, which allowed our backs on the second and third phases to make further inroads into the opposition's half. The following week Scots were unable to field a team at this level. We played Waverley instead and managed a 12-5 wm. We had many scoring opportunities but Waverley's scrambling defence kept the scoreline respectful. Our next game was against Riverview Os. As we found out earlier in the season Riverview were very strong in this age group. Even playing a grade below we struggled to defeat a strong opposition We were behind

220 with one minute remaining on the clock. However, a glut of possession near their try line saw us finally go in under the posts for a converted try. The next game against St Josephs was on a par with our earlier triumph against Kings. They were a very well drilled team. However, our determination to win the game saw the forwards put on a powerful display that allowed our backs to score two tries out wide. A most satisfying victory We continued our good form next game where we had to play Trinity at Summer Hill. This game was to replace the game against High who, like Scots, could not field a team in this grade. We played strongly to lead 12-0 with five minutes remaining. Unfortunately we became lazy towards the end of the game and allowed Trinity to score two pushover tries in the corner. We were thankful when the final whis<le wem allowing us to win the game Our last two games saw us go down to Grammar Bs and 31-0 to Riverview. Grammar were too big and strong on the day. We had improved on our last showing against the strong Riverview team and were only down 7-0 at the break. However, as with the last time we played them, their big pack of forwards caused havoc in the second half. To the boys' credit they did not give up trying until the final whis<le. Even though we had a disappointing end to the season the boys can be pleased with their 7 wins to 4 losses record. The aim of. the season was to have a good time and enjoy their games of Rugby. This was achieved and may they continue to their enjoy games in the years ahead. 14DXV AA Clark, TE Ouesbury, T Fitzherbert Smith, JB Greenwood (C), RW James, HR Noble, GT Little, EC Matthews, KP McFarland, SH Morris, ]0 Pails, SA Poole, JP Ridout, JA Robertson, ]P Rochlin, TO Rudkin, RT Sholl, LP Smith, PC Sutherland, JM Till brook, SH Vowell, CD Yeates During the season this team played 11 games against nine other schools, playing Riverview and Barker twice. In all they won fiv e matches, drew one and lost five. In compiling 193 points they scored 34 tries, and had 91 points scored against them. Tom Dues bury was the mastermind of the team, displaying excellent kicking skills and choosing the right rime when to run or pass. The highlight of the season was the hard fought and spirited match against St Josephs, where they lost eight points to five. In this match Lincoln Smith was at his rampaging best and Serath Poole was absolutely fearless in defence. The best D team in this age group came from Riverview, where the boys suffered a 35 points to nil loss. Fortunately the second match against the Jesuits was against their E team. The 14Ds finished off the season very well with a nail-biting win over the Newington C team. 14E XV WHP Joseph (C), SR Aylwin, AA Clarke, AW Cooper, ]AM Cowper, RP Gregory, MP Hodginson, AJC Hogan, BJ Hudson, WG Meiklejohn, BP Moody, JM Peach, JPW Ridout, OJ Shillcock, NJ Spear, PC Sutherland, JM Til brook, JA Trotter, AG Wood, NOK Yates 220

221 The 14Es had a rather topsy-turvy season, with a large cast of players passing through the team and.a change of coach near the end. The ream's record of five wins and five losses would have you believe that it was an average season, but these statistics don't show how much the players improved during the year and, more importanrly, how much they enjoyed their Rugby. The highlights were the strong wins over Waverley and Joeys, the larrer victory achieved through a fine display of running Rugby on the narrow confines of E Ground. The captain, Will joseph, led the team with aplomb from five-eighth, pushing them forward with judicious tactical kicking and allowing the backrow of Cooper, Peach and Yates (who made a habit of scoring tries) to make a lot of ground. The tight forwards changed during the season, but every player had his day. Meiklejohn, Hodgkinson and Clarke proved a consistem front row and Sutherland and Moody also played strongly when called on. Cowper and Wood made up the second row at the tail end of the season and both roiled manfully in what is regarded by some to be by far the most important position on <he field. Tilbrook and the aforementioned Joseph made up the halves, with Trotter playing his part. Both halfbacks were quick around the field and set up their outside men well. Ridout and Aylwin played in the centres and set up an assortment of wingers; Hudson, Spear and Shillcock playing most of the last few games. Hogan was unlucky to miss a large part of the season through injury. Gregory moved from the pack back to his rightful spot at fullback and came into the line willingly. As stated previously, many other boys played for short times in the team and the omission of their names in no way reflects on their contributions. All players enjoyed their foo<ball and were willing to listen and learn. They have a chance to push for higher honours next year if they are prepared to work on their skills. The coaches both enjoyed the season tremendously and wish the boys well for the future. 14F XV ME Abbott, TJ Allen, ASF Bennett, JGH Brown, JSK Chan, TB Duggan, ATK Ekin, RK Garrett, MM James, CE jordan-hawkins, AH Landis, TE Manning, BP Moody, DT Moore, JW Morgan, JMJ Nisbet, ZR Thompson, JA TrO<ter, DB Wallman Also Played: SR Aylwin, TR Brennan, AD Cahill, Cj Chivers, RP Gregory, RJ Holliday-Smith, SC Harder, BJ Hudson, WG Meiklejohn, JM Peach, NR Pride, PC Sutherland This was a short season with only seven games played as the ream was only formed at the beginning of Term IlL Shore finished with three wins, three losses and a draw. The first two games were against Kings, where Shore had quite easy victories of 31-0 and 30-5 respectively. The following week, Riverview proved ro be a greater challenge, winning The team had a good run against St Josephs winning 32-7, which boosted the players' confidence leading up to a rematch against Riverview. The opposition scored in the first 10 minutes, making the score S-0. A brilliant solo performance by Robeit Garren in a run, which started on the sideline at the half way line, resulted in a 221

222 magnificent try between the posts. Andrew Bennett converted and Shore was in front Unfortunately, Shore could not dominate the stronger Riverview team and went down Grammar also proved to be much stronger, Shore losing However, the team finished with a draw against Newington, which was a fair end to the season. There was a large turnover of players during the season, mostly due to illness and injury in higher teams. The top try scorers were David Moore (4), John Morgan (3), Robert Garrett (3) and James Peach (2), while the goal kickers were Richard Gregory (3), Andrew Bennett (2) and Matt James (2). This is not to detract from the efforts of Cameron Jordan Hawkins, Brent Hudson, Nick Pride, Andrew Cahill and Tim Brennan who each scored a try and all the other players who worked so hard to get them there. The captaincy changed several times during the season, but many thanks go to Brent Hudson, David Moore, Tom Allen and Matt James for their leadership efforts. All players developed their game and it was very pleasing to see some of the newcomers picking up the skills quickly. The entire team made a commendable effort to support the less experienced players, some of them willingly volunteering to stay for a few minutes after practice to give extra coaching. As a result, every player was made to feel part of the team and this is what makes Rugby at Shore such a rewarding experience. Many thanks to all the boys for their efforts, the parents for their support and best wishes to everyone for the next season. IJAXV WC Allen, MS Bell, JS Bennett, MJK Hamilton, ERM Jenkins, SH Kiely, JPL Knight, AW McCarthy, JGP Paske, GN Psaltis, BJ Ronald, JRF Stanistreet, EW Stearn, TB Studdy, WJ Van Schalkwyk The 13As Rugby team had a fine season winning nine and losing two matches. The season started strongly with the team gelling nicely and all players fully fit. Unfortunately in Term II the team was regularly disrupted by injury and it was rare for it to remain the same from one week to the next. This made it difficult to maintain a consistent approach at training and meant the team was under-prepared and manned in several games. Despite the setbacks the boys had a tremendous season and produced some outstanding performances. The team boasted a wealth of individual talent that when working co-operatively became formidable opponents. The front row of ] ames Knight, Winston Stearn and Andrew McCarthy provided a strong platform to the serum and they all proved devastating when making the hit-ups. Jeremy Paske playing in the second row improved with every game and his strong running proved a feature in some of the games late in rhe season. George Psaltis played most of the season at breakaway and proved a good technician at the breakdown. James Bennett and James Stanistreet were both strong in taking the ball up and both made quite an impact at the breakdown. Although erratic, Will Allen was potentially the most devastating forward, and frequemly took a tough approach to both attack and defence. 222

223 The backs proved a very slick outfit and when running on song they proved unstoppable. At halfback Wiehahn Van Schalkwyk improved with every game. He was rough and shows good promise for the future. Tim Scuddy proved reliable at five-eight. He defended well and took the ball up hard and improved as the season progressed. In the centres Matthew Bell and Sam Kiely were the backbone of the team. Their speed and strength made them powerful in attack and defence and they provided the majority of attacking opcions w the team. The wingers Ed Jenkins and Ben Ronald both proved valuable players. Ed always provided variety in the attack when the ream was flat and Ben was outstanding in defence. Michael Hamilton was a reliable fullback and he was always keen to develop his game. His skills should stand him in good stead in the future. All in all it was a fine and enjoyable season for everyone involved. 138 XV ERW Alexander, AC Bain, AG Baker (C), JP Bunting, JM Considine, AFR Davidson, NT Debney, TI Geddes, TW Hardwick, AFS Jones, JA Kernaghan, TJ Lee, MJ North, EJ Osborne, PJ Russell Cook, BP Sandcman, BT Slessar, DC Stone, CQE Taperell The 13B XV had an excellent season this year. Out of II games played the team won seven, lost three and drew one. The boys played particularly well in the GPS season, and had an outstanding win against St Josephs. They played St Josephs 13 XV twice during the season, and on both occasions they proved to be our most challenging opposition. In the first game Shore lost 10-5, in a fast and aggressive game of Rugby. In the second game Shore won 10-0 through sheer determination and the application of bone crushing defence in the second half. Aidan Baker, the captain, proved to be a positive motivator for his team. He was vocal on the field and led by example, playing hard honest Rugby. Most 1mpress1ve was the team 1 S willingness to learn at training sessions and their spirit on the field. Many thanks to the sports coaches, Tom Jamison and Elliot Tourle, and to the parents for their support of the boys throughout the season. IJC XV DB Andrews, BE Armstrong, SJ Bastian, JD Bourke, JJS Chambers, TJ Fitzpatrick, NJ Gillett, DPB Hall, SR McKendry, AC Miller, MJ Paull, LA Rochlin, JP Russell-Cook, WH Schmidt, JKB Swanson, NJ Trumbull, BS Vincent, AS Weston (C) The Cs were a talented group who displayed considerable initiative and many skills. They enjoyed a highly successful season, winning eight of their games, drawing two and losing only one right game against St Josephs. They began the season with a flourish, making convincing wins against St Stanislaus, Barker and Knox. The first of their two games against Riverview ended in a 5-5 draw. It was a game in which several first half-scoring opportunities were squandered. The next encounter was thus eagerly anticipated. 223

224 Term III began with comfortable wins over Kings and Scots, although it was only in the second half of the Scots game that the team really took the ascendancy. The second of the encounters with Riverview ended in a pleasing 15-7 win, with the ream putting together some fine tries to establish a lead that never really looked threatened, despite the relative closeness of the score. It was against St Josephs that the team experienced its only loss. Missing its full back and captain,.and~ew \Vcston, the team 1 s line of defence was unusually vulnerable. As a result St Josephs were able to score four fairly easy tries. Shore scored three tries and could have taken. the lead late in the second half, but was frustrated by a lengthy injury stoppage, just as it was gathering momentum. The next rwo games over Waverley and Grammar 13Bs were won, with the team coming back from a 0-12 deficit against Grammar. The final game against Newingwn again saw the team down at half time, this time by 14 points. The two Newingwn tries were completely against the run of play. The team was furthermore allowing itself to be bustled by a fairy unruly opposition with scant regard for the offside laws. However Shore 13Cs managed to re-gather themselves, putting on two very exciting second half tries, converted magnificently by Matthew Paull. The end result was a draw. lt was an enjoyable season, made especially so by the enormous enthusiasm of the boys, who can all look forward w much success in future Shore teams. 13 D XV AA Austin, DA Bellingham, SM. Brezny, JR Carr, JW Collins, JA Gayleard, PJT Henning, BN Hosking, RL Hunt, SF Hutcherson, ER Lee, HN Lynar, SO Parris, CJ Peponis, DB Robertson, APP Townend, JML Want, AW Wilmott The team made a strong start to the season accumulating 145 points with only 39 scored against during the four pre-season games. The first game against Oakhill showed that they knew how to score tries quite well. The next two games were nothing much more than training runs with wins of 72-0 against. Barker and 53-0 against Knox. The ease with which the team won these games became their downfall in the fourth game against Riverview..tvlany simple errors resulted in the turning over of the ball and a lack of tackling left the team with a 0-29 result. "Term III began with Mr Gwynnjones returning early from Scocland and taking over the coaching. Many individual and team skills were taken back w the basics. Throughout the term, the 13Cs were used as training aids letting them know just how good the Ds were. Training focused on gening basic passing correct, running with the ball and rucking skills. The aim was to play a running game forcing second and third phase ball and it began very well. After only one training session, what also became a training run was played against Kings at home. The result 51-0 was a terrific way w start the season but there was a long way to go. The boys needed w learn when to do what during a game and the concept of 'cleaning out' was still new to most when they ventured 224

225 over the Bellevue Hill w play Scots. The opposition were a well-drilled team and having w play on a postage stamp size ground did not help Shore's running style of game. Shore were beaten by a better team on the day, This proved to be a turning point in the season. The 13Ds won every game from the nexr week on. Their basic game strategy was developing and all skills improved. Next week, the trip to Riverview for the rematch was certainly worth it. Although played in fog, which made it difficult at times, the ream did very well and with a much improved commitment. Riverview claimed injury to two of their front row at the end of the first half, which meant Shore had to play uncontested serums. Pushing their serum all over the paddock may not have had anything to do with it, but it certainly slowed Shore's style of play down. Winning the retur? game on the opposition's home ground by 17-5 was sweet revenge. Not all schools are able to provide opposition to the 0 level, which meant the next two weeks Shore played Joeys. These games will be remembered for some time. Not only did the 13Ds beat Joeys on Shore's home ground 10-5, the following week at Hunters Hill the Ds improved the win in a good game of It was a great feeling. Confusion reigned the next week at Queens Park where the team played Waverley. With only 13 players due to illness and with no other Shore teams there to provide back up, the Ds had to play short but it didn 1 t seem to matter. With heads up they ran all over the field winning comfortably. South again to Stanmore they played Newington, a big team that had lots of loud support, for the final game. Again, playing on what felt like a half size field made it difficult with one of Shore's 22m kicks going dead at the other end of the field. It was a good kick though! We finished the season ;veil with a good 17-7win. Overall, it was a most successful season. Many skills were learned and the team came away with quite a good understanding of Rugby - scoring 297 points, including 55 tries, and with only 94 points score? against. This was a most enjoyable season. 13E XV NA Bradley, CJ Burnell, PJ Crawford, MR Degotardi, B Farago,. SW Fisher, TW Freeman, HB King, W Lumsdaine, AW McLaughlin, JL Meiklejohn, CD Moore, SR Noble (C), JR Sevier, SA Sloane, BC Smith, NJ Thomson The. team had an excellent season, finishing, undefeated, scoring a total of 344 points and conceding only 27 points. The strength of the team was its spirit of teamwork, their readiness to share the ball around and the energy and mobility of the forward pack. Peter Crawford was an outstanding fullback both in attack and defence, always ready to join in the back-line, and catching and kicking brilliantly. He scored 95 points from eight tries, four penalty goals and 19 conversio~s. His goal-kicking ability improved rapidly and he kicked goals from everywhere. The whole back-line achieved excellent penetration, due to quick passing from half-backs Chris Moore and Sam Fisher, quick thinking from five-eighth Matt Degotardi, dependable linking from Nick Thomson 225

226 and brilliant stepping from Brett Farago, who regularly wove through gaps to feed his winger in open space. The wingers used all the ball they received with some speedy runs and a readiness to link back in and look for support. Ex-AFL player Sam Sloane was hard to stop and pulled off some brilliant try-saving tackles in defence. Ben Smith plucked the ball from anywhere and took off. The fact that 17 tries were scored by wingers or full-back is an indication of the unselfish and skilled play by the inside backs. And plenry of ball came to them from a tight forward pack, which kept moving forward and was quick to.the breakdown. Hooker, Chris Burnell, regularly won tight heads as well as loose. Strong props Sam Noble and James Meiklejohn competently set the ball, drove forward, and cleared out opponents. Second row Andrew McLaughlin and Tom Freeman were very quick around the field and often made good ground rolling off mauls. No 8 Will Lumsdaine was untiring in defence, an excellent chaser and scored off the 'base of the serum in almost every game. Jack Sevier was a great little terrier in defence and attack, with a natural knack of picking up loose ball. He also floated brilliantly in the line-out jump, as did Henry King, who played some sensational games. Henry found gaps in the tightest situations, at one stage scoring nine tries in four matches. Nick Bradley was a tough and quick utiliry forward who played every position in the serum. The level of enjoyment and co-operation on the part of the players was matched only by the enjoyment of the spectators. Many of them commenced that the sryle of play was more emenaining to watch than a test match. A memorable season. 13F XV BJ Lewis, JNP Mare, ON Bragg (C), JR Fox, CR Hutchinson, EAG Cooper, AO Sutherland, OK Holt, LJ Paramor, J Kerr, TO Cooper, JO Cairncross, JP Baird, NAJ Turner, JC Manticus, NOT Armstrong, RJ Holliday-Smith The 13Fs had a tremendous season, playing 11 games, winning 8, drawing 1 and losing 2. They scored 269 points and had 56 scored against, 49 tries to 10 tries. The team spirit was evident each time they played with the boys constantly encouragmg and congratulating each other. This same spirit emerged during the training. sessions as they worked at improving their skills. They realised that the secret co improving is training in a disciplined manner and working on individual faults before the team converged. The boys responded extremely well to the training sessions, panicularly those run by the assistant coaches. The rapport between the assistant coaches and the boys was excellent because of their commitment w training and improvement. The games were tremendous to watch as the boys never gave up and continually worked to unsettle the other team by constant attack or defence. This positive approach was evidenced by constant discussions of ways to overcome the opponenc. The skills of the backs were a joy to watch and were the result of repetition and hard work combined with a desire to succeed. The abiliry to pass the ball whilst under pressure meant a great number of tries were scored; a difficult task for many boys and yet these boys were able to perform this with precision. 226

227 The forwards were able to work as a pack and the lineouts and serums were improved by their attention to detail and willingness to listen to the coaches. The best aspect of the team was the players individual improvement and their ability to combine this with the ream game. This led to the team playing well above their ability level. llg XV A Brown, S Hamilton, J Muysken, J Black, C Allison, N Thompson, R Goswell, S Biffin, S Coates, D Lack, A Nazarewicz, E Loveday (C), M Kennett, A Smith, J Christie, M Powell, G Hambly, E Richards, N Newling, W Varney Although the 13G XV enjoyed a successful season when comparing the number of games won, this was not the most satisfying aspect of their performance. They played an expansive brand of Rugby that was enjoyable to watch as well as play. The forwards combined well to ruck and maul most effectively, and the backs showed pace, flair and the desire to score tries. Teamwork improved through the season and only their concentration wavered at times during matches. The front row of Anthony Brown, Sam Hamilton and Jake Muysken scrummed well, and the hooker James Black was effective in the tight and the loose. He was a strong tackler. The second row of Chris Allison, Nick Thompson and Richard Goswell (until his illness) ran strongly in attack and often dominated their opposition. The back row of Scott Biffin, Simon Coates, Daniel Lack and Alex Nazarewicz looked good with the ball in hand put their defence was sometimes shown to be weak Something to work on next season. Ed Loveday, at half, was a fine captain, organising his team well and keeping their minds on the job. At five-eighth Matt Kennett showed good individual skills although he needs to improve his option making. Matt was an excellent goal kicker. In the centres, various combinations were used. Alex Smith, Jaime Christie, Mike Powell and Giles Hambly all have enough penetration in attack to be in higher teams. They did not always combine well, but this will come. At times their defence could be fragile. Ed Richards and Nick Newling were wingers who could score tries. Nick was the team's most penetrative, attacking back who should do well in the future. At fullback, Will Varney was safe in defence, and when he came into the backline could beat the opposition defence. Most of the team have: the ability to rise through the ranks in future seasons but it will be up to them to work at improving their natural skills. Thanks to Mike Parker, James Druce and Doug MacPhillamy for their dedicated and enthusiastic coaching during practices.

228 The 13Hs had an uphill battle this season, winning only one of the 11 games played. To their credit the team maintained enthusiasm and played with spirit against some difficult opposition. We often found ourselves up against higher grades and had to try to rise to the occasion. Many times the team rallied after conceding points early and replied with tries and committed defence, making the game more hard fought than some scorelines might suggest. Although it was great to win against Knox, the game of the season had to be versus St Patricks. We replied to every point St Patricks put on the board throughout the first half, with Michael Skipper kicking a conversion from the sideline and a penalty goal on half time to level the scores at 17 all. It was still anyone 1 s game at 22 all with ten minutes co go and our attack on their line was relentless. Nick Forsyth, having scored one try, almost went over in the same corner, burst Patricks bustled him om in desperation. Disastrously, after such a valiant effort, St Patricks broke through in the last minutes with two quick tries and a conversion w shut us out of the game. All worked hard and shone at times, especially breakaway Scott Shepherd, who ran hard and straight, scoring several tries, and was quick to pressure the opposition in defence. Toby Lister was always quick to pick up the loose ball and charge forward, Tristan Cotton made some very good tackles and Tom Vowell and Matt Harris were always working hard in the rucks and mauls. Andrew McConnell and Will Townsend improved their skills and showed determination, and Mark Nisbet made some good runs. Tom Read was a reliable captain, and Michael Skipper kicked very well. Will Mansell ran straight and passed well and Will Sandford was quick and agile. Chris Gimson tackled awesomely and went in for more than one try; Chris Nobbs handled the ball well under pressure and wrapped up players, ball and all in his tackles. Peter Anstee's AFL skills served us well as he played full back, sharing the position with Michael Begg, who was wonderfully willing to play any position. Late arrivals Matt McAuliffe and Michael Fisher also made a helpful contribution. The weakness of the team was a lack of mental focus, both at training and in the warm up to games. This led to poor starts to games and basic mistakes in the games that cost points. With better mental focus, some of the individual talents the players showed could be better developed and utilised. That said, the team did see significant improvement over the season and enjoyed the game. Thanks for the faithful support of many parents throughout the season.

The start of the season brought together a group of inexperienced but keen players; many of them had never played any Rugby. Term 228

229 n was spent developing a basic understanding of the game, and learning co play as a ream. Numerous men were shifted through positions in an effort to establish the best combination of players. Despite some large losses during this time, the team continued to train and to learn enthusiastically. By the starr of Term III rhey had become a competitive and coberenr football team. Our first two games were against Riverview 13Gs and 13Hs. Our ream played courageously, bur was beaten by two very strong reams. Many would argue thar the season highlight was a resounding win over Sr Josephs at Hunters Hill. Our defence was tenacious, and our arrack which included two outstanding solo rries by Tom Riddingoon was too strong for joeys. 'T'he hardest fought game we played was against St Parricks. Against a larger ream, we matched rhem wirh determination and aggression, and rook a narrow lead into the half time break. They came our for the second half wirh some fresh and strong players, and quickly hit back. However, we maintained our composure and finished the game with a narrow, bu[ honourable loss. Charlie Hall's kicking game was a fearure of this march. Unfortunately a shoulder injury to Alex French pur an early end to his season. The following week we had a return match with Joeys, again at H uocers Hill. With the assistance of some visiting interstate players, they took an early lead bur a strong showing in the second half by the Shore back line, inspired by Reece Evans in attack and Luke Mulholland in defence, kept us in the game. At full-rime, however, they had maintained their lead in another evenly contested game. Our final march was against Newington at Stanmore. We dominated the first half, and rook a comfortable lead into half rime. A little complacency, and perhaps too much thinking ahead co the postgame party, allowed Newington to score a number of second half tries and take the game. On review, this was a happy season, with the boys developing an admirably strong sense of team camaraderie. Tom Warson was outstanding as captain, and truly lead by example. Luke Mulholland as Vice-Captain ably supported him. Flomi11go by Tom Cooper 229

230 SHOOTING F irsts: H Parry-Okeden (C), H Duddy, J Seeto, T Bunting, R Alexander, D Goldring, W Cape, A Greenwell, D Hood, J Pratten Seconds: A Spring (C), 0 Hood, K Uebergang, C Schmidt, G Madgwick, A Clemens, 0 Wood, J Pratten Rifle shooting commenced at the beginning of the year with smallbore practice at the Hornsby range complex. This occurred every Friday on the 50- metre small bore range. The services ofmr Max Boulton, captain of the North Sydney Smallbore and Air Rifle club, has allowed our newer shooters co gain the advice of a very experienced shooter. With the loss of most the Firsts from 1998, a large number of new shooters progressed to fullbore early 10 Term D. Consistency and accuracy were the hallmarks of these boys as they gained experience on ranges varying from 300 to 600 metres. With the fu llbore season came an increase in the shooti ng activities with both small bore and full bore being shoe on Saturday mornings. It was particularly pleasing to note the enthusiasm and competency of the young shooters who will make up the bulk of the team in years co come. The camp this year was undertaken in the most difficult and trying conditions in memory. It rained virtually every day with very few breaks. Thjs did not allow much practice at longer ranges as the targets were obscured due to the rain. The generous provision of some large marquees by parents enabled practice co continue at 300 metres. The assistance of Mr John Schafferius, who has coached for some years now, and the services of Robert Woods, Captain of Shooting 1998 and Andrew Yates, Captain of Shooting 1997, proved invaluable in the preparation of Shore's very young team. Despite the hardships, exceuent scores were achieved and a high level of proficiency gained. Conditions were vastly different in the GPS competition during the following week and the competition from the ocher GPS teams was focmjdable. As expected Shore shooters performed very well with the following scores being obtained during the two days of competition. Firsts Shooter Rawson NRA Buchanan H Parry Okeden 66.4 ' J Seeto N/A H Duddy '1 T BuntJng 65.3 '12 N/A RAiexander 69.3 '16: D Goldnng 65.6 % 74 WCape 66.1 'Ill 75.1 A Greenwell 65.2 '16.2 n J Pratten NIA N/A 72.2 D Hood N/A N/A 66 Seconds Shooter 2nds match A Spring 59.1 DHood 68.7 K Uebergang 62.2 CSchm1dt 593 GMadgwick 685 A Clemens 58.2 DWood 65.1 J Pratten 63.5 Shore came fifth this year in the Firsts and came second in the Seconds march. The fine way in which these rwo teams have represented Shore during the 1999 season can be attributed to the inspiring leadership provided by che Captain of Shooting and Winner of the Venour Nathan Shield, Henry Parry-Okeden. 230

231 SOCCER At the close of the 1999 season, the performance of Shore Soccer stands up well, even when scrutinised intensely under the strongest spotlight. Numerous innovations and strategies were devised and implemented which will continue to bear fruit in future years. Sonle of these are: *Training sessions with ACT, Australian Women 1 s Soccer Team and specialist goal keeping coaches. Atcendance at the Easter camp of Phil Moss, a Shore old boy and junior development officer for Northern Spirit Soccer. Anendance at matches by two international Soccer players associated with Northern Spirit who provided invaluable coaching assistance. Access to ror ground for at least one training session each week for all 1 N teams. In addition, there have been a number of 1 fi.rsts 1 which concribute to the buoyant spirit within Shore Soccer.

SHORE SOCCER TALLY WINS DRAWS LOSSES Final Result *Thirty-two players participated in a referees course in the July holidays and 18. of those have gone on to be 'field tested' to be graded as fully qualified class 4 referees in the newly formed Sydney Schools Soccer Referees Association. A few will complete their grading next year. Thirty players and two coaches attended a week long Soccer camp to the AIS in Canberra. *The ISs age group won 23, drew three and lost only two this term. one player scored 12 goals this year! This was a most successful season, and congratulations go to the coaches and players. Congratulations also to the supporters for their encouragement each Saturday, and help in maintaining the enviable and recognised high standards of conduct and behaviour that made Shore Soccer 1999 a pleasant and positive experience for everyone. First XI SJ Anderson, CE Cehak, OP Iaccarino, PS King, A Leslie, RM MacDonald, AD Page, AL Perrin, MD Press (C), ML Robinson, AC Slocombe, JA Taylor The 1999 season's results do not fully reflect the commitment of the First XI and the spirit in which they played. Each player is to be commended for the way he approached each match, with determination, enthusiasm and always showing good sportsmanship whatever the odds. The first trial game was against The Scots College and because both teams were very nervous the game was played at a very fast pace, resulting in mistakes on both sides. Inside the first 10 minutes Shore found themselves two goals down bur the team quickly responded with an all out attack on the Scots goal. This attack saw some fine lead-up play from Alex 231

232 Slocombe resulting in a hard struck shot from James Taylor that the keeper had no chance to stop. Relaxed play saw two more goals enter the Shore net, which brought the score to 4-1 at half time. The second half started with an all out attack from Shore and the strength and determination.of Mark Robinson and James Taylor down the left wing resulted in a low and powerful shot from the former which flew into the back of the net. Scots then countered with a lucky goal but Shore fought back with a further two goals; one from Chris Gill and finally a penalty from Alex Slocombe making the score S-4 to Scots. With three corners awarded w Shore in the final five minutes of play it seemed that the equaliser was on the cards, but it was not to be. The one question asked by the soccer community throu'ghout the following week was 'When was the last time the Shore First XI scored four goals in a game? 1 The final three trial games were against top CAS sides, Barker College and Knox Grammar, plus the top GPS side for this season, St Ignatius College. Barker College has, for many years, produced a very strong First XI and this year was no exception. The Shore team was under constant pressure throughout the game and once again were 1-0 down after the very first Barker attack in the opening couple of minutes. The final result of this game was a resounding 4-0 loss, but full credit goes to Andrew Perrin, the Shore goalkeeper for keeping the score down to a respectable level. The first 20 minutes against Knox produced some very strong and determined play from both sides with Alex Slocombe controlling the midfield, and the defence staying tight on their rugged 232 and skilful opposition. This very physical game took its toll on the side and just before the interval Rod Macdonald, succumbing to injury, forced an early substitution and vanous positional changes. The pressure was released and Knox was able to score two quick goals without reply. In the second half, further injuries and some defensive mistakes allowed Knox to completely dominate the game with the final score 6-0. The final trial. game was against St Ignatius, looming as the competition favourites after defeating Barker 6-2. Shore entered the match knowing that they had to play hard and be competitive. With strong tackling and commitment to the ball, they completely over-ran the opposition and a fast break from midfield resulted in a cool finish by Rod Macdonald, scoring to the elation of the team and the supporters alike. This goal shocked St Ignatius and they awoke to hit back to level the score. Although Andrew Page continued to hassle for the ball in the forward line it. was not long before a counter attack resulted in two fine pinpoint shots, plus the very strong wind that put St Ignatius into a 3-1 half time lead. At the beginning of the second half Shore were looking to exploit this wind advantage with long balls to the two forwards, but within a few minutes of the half starting the wind we had been fighting against for the first 40 minutes had disappeared. Oliver Iaccarino, on his return to the side, found space down the right flank to place.some nice crosses that were unlucky n6t to produce a Shore goal. In a much more open and free flowing second half, St Ignatius scored a further four goals making the final result 7-1. The scoreline does not reflect the

233 fact that Shore showed great commitment and heart which is a credit to each and every player in the team. Returning to Northbridge after a w.eek of intensive training at the Institute of Sport in Canberra, the First XI started the GPS season full of confidence. Shore began the match against The King's School solidly, with strong defence led by the sweeper, Simon Anderson. In attack Rod Macdonald and Andrew Page created problems for King 1 s defence with a variety of long range shots. By the end of the first half, Shore had the better of possession and was playing the better football. In the second half King's suddenly came to life. Their star players made a direct impact with a classy goal in the first minute of the half. A lack of marking and shape in the Shore midfield soon led to an extension of the scoreline. However, Andrew Perrin saved a certain goal in an amazing show of athleticism. With 'nanoseconds 1 to view the shot (or missile) he leaped high and was able to push the ball over the bar. The final score was 5-0, but the first half of the game showed that Shore, with a bit of good fortune, can hold their own with the best. The second round of the season saw the Shore team travel to The Scots College for what turned out to be a very similar rype of game to the pre~season fixture. As in the previous game, there were goals aplenry from both sides with Scots running out victors by the odd goal in seven. Mark Robinson, Andre Leslie and Andrew Page each scored a goal; to score three goals and still lose is hard for most teams to accept. A good result from this game would have put the team on a high and would have given them more confidence for what was to be the most difficult game of the season against St Ignatius' College, away from home, on the following Saturday. Straight from the kick off St Ignatius attacked the Shore goal relentlessly. It was obvious to everyone that this was, indeed, a very hardworking and skilful ream. Within the first five minutes Shore were two goals down and it appeared that with every kick towards the goal, St Ignatius would put the ball into the back of the net. Although Peter King had one of his best games to date in defence, he was unable, along with his teammates, to stop the rampaging onslaught bearing down on Andrew Perrin's goal. The final score was 11-0 with the victors going on to an unbeaten season. Round four of the GPS competition saw the First XI back on home soil at Northbridge for the visit of St Joseph's College. The opening 15 minutes of the game saw the home team rise to meet the challenge by dominating the play of the ball with the power and commitment that had been lacking in previous matches. The Joeys defence struggled to pin down the Shore attack, together with Alex Slocombe and Andre Leslie constantly frustrating the Joeys midfield. A special mention must go to Peter King, Shore's stand-in Captain (Matt Press was forced to leave the field injured), producing yet another fine game in both defence and attack. Mid-way through the first half, Joeys pulled off a speedy counter attack and managed to score with a fine header. To Shore's credit, however, no one became disheartened and there was no change to the score at half time. The second half saw Shore once again dominate from the outset. Some 233

234 fresh faces from the 16As, Sam Paterson and Matt Paton, proved very useful and slotted into the game with ease. Unfortunately, Shore saw coundess attempts on goal smothered by the Joeys keeper. Typical of this game was a shot by James Taylor, which hit the post only to return into the field of play. With only IS minutes left in the game the Shore defence showed signs of tiredness. This resulted in the Joeys forwards racing away to score two quick goals. The final score of 3-0 did not justify how well the home team played, as the match could have gone either way. The following week's fixture saw the Shore team, once again at Northbridge, against a very tough and physical Sydney High. Within a few minutes of the game starting one of the High players was given his marching orders and Shore took advantage of the extra player when James Taylor scored with a well taken goal. However, after this early goal Shore, paid the price for relaxing and High managed w score an equaliser. Only seconds before half time High were awarded a penalty. Fortunately Andrew Perrin was more than equal to the task and saved the shot admirably. Half time saw the score locked at 1-1. The second half began with disaster as Shore 1 s commitment turned to frustration after a controversial goal was awarded to the High side. This frustration was not aided by the fact that Captain Matt Press was sent off for a professional foul. From this moment on the home side lost direction and conceded three soft but well-constructed goals to the hard working High team. Special mention must go to three Shore players, Mark Robinson, Rod Macdonald and Tom Cehak, who played their hearts out and showed tremendous commitment and spirit throughout this tough fixture. Round six of the competition saw Shore at Northbridge for the final time this season against a fine team from Sydney Grammar. Obviously tl)e home team were keen to do well and went into this game with a positive frame of mind. The match began well with Shore showing some fine individual skills, notably Tom Cehak in defence and Oliver Iaccarino, who tested the Grammar keeper with a variety of long shots, in midfield. However as the game became more open, Grammar were able to find space in front of goal, slipping past some wayward tackles to slot the ball into the Shore net. Minutes after this, a plethora of Shore supporters, soccer and Rugby, came to lend some support to the side. The cheering and war cries (a rare event at the soccer) clearly lifted the team, as for the remainder of the first half Shore played some excellent soccer. Alex Slocombe in midfield was deft in his ability to slip past the opposition, and up front, Andre Leslie linked well with James Taylor to create a multitude of scormg opportunities, unfortunately to no avail. In the second half the home side once again began to relax and it wasn 1 t long before Grammar were able to dictate play. This resulted in Shore conceding a further two goals with the final score being 3-0 to Grammar. The final round of the!999 GPS season saw the Shore First XI travelling to Newington College. Once again Shore dominated the play and even though they had the majority of possession they just could not put the ball into the net. The problem with all out attacking 234

235 soccer is that you leave yourself open to the counter attack and this happened a number of times during the first half. By the interval Shore found themselves three goals down. The second half was a different ball game. Excellent play by the captain, Matthew Press, and Simon Anderson in defence, ensured that no further goals were conceded, but Shore's season was summed up by the final kick of the afternoon. A penalty was awarded in the final mmute of the game but unfortunately Alex Slocombe could only push the ball over the cross bar. This piece of bad luck had been with the team right through the season and so credit must be given to every player for his positive attitude, right from day one. No one could have predicted that the season was going to be so tough and competitive, but whatever the outcome and conditions, the boys were always ready and in a positive frame of mind for the training on the following Tuesday. This 1999 report would nor be complete without mentioning those who worked behind the scenes. The Fitness Guru of Shore school, Mr Alistair Miller, rose.from his bed early each Wednesday morning to put the boys through their paces on the hill sprints. The Captain of Soccer's parents, jan and David Press, led a marvellous ream who provided afternoon tea for each home game. Mr Neil MacDonald gave up his rime and assisted in ferrying the team to St Joseph's College for a midweek cup game. Heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you for your support throughout the season. Second XI KF Bayvel, CT Brooks, AC Brawn, SJ Carroll (VC), CJ Gill, PP Markham, TL Middleton, CTT Palioca (C), OJ Paton, AS Rogers, AG Smith, J Thomas The pre-season started with Barker and we went in with a strong side, feeling that we were both fit and skilful enough to march them. The game was played both hard and fast and Jonathon Thomas with his aggressive play created many opportunities for our forwards. David Paton was outstanding as defender and captain and Alex Smith had a strong game shutting down their attack. The 0-1 loss wasn 1 t a true reflection on our opportunities during the game. After a lacklustre performance against Knox 0-6, the team's training through the week was both hard and productive. David Paton was called up to the Firsts and Todd Palioca took over as captain. Our pre-season game against Riverview started slowly and we found ourselves down 0-3 at half time. The second half saw our players determined not to let in any more goals and.with their commitment and determination,. the second half remained scoreless. Scott Carroll's brilliant save as a defender on the goal line was outstanding and Todd Palioca led from the front with his tireless effort. Alex Brawn once again was strong in defence. After our very successful tour in the holidays to the AIS, we were focused for the start of the GPS season. Our first game was against Kings. We attacked their goal with many runs from Phil Markham and Cameron Brooks but without success. In the first half Kings didn't see much of the ball but were ' "' 235

236 awarded a penalty goal to make the score 1-0 to Kings. To the credit of the boys led by Todd Palioca they didn't give up. A set move saw the ball passed out to Jonathon Thomas, 30 metres out. He struck the ball with his right boot, over the goalie and into the net to level the score 1-1 at half time. In the second half we again attacked their goal, Anton Rogers putting one just over the bar, Todd Palioca punching one to the left side of the goals only to see a great save from the Kings goalie. We had. the better of the game and the final score of 1-1 was a tribute to our team play. The game against Scots was played on a soft pitch due to the lack of grass. After a flat first half running against a strong wind we found ourselves down 0-1. The second half saw a deflection from Scots to bring the scores level at 1-1. We again had our opportunities but failed to capitalise on them and the game finished with a 1-1 draw. Playing against Riverview away was going to be a hard match and the wet pitch and illness of key players didn't work in our favour. Riverview came out strong, and we were defending for the first 10 minutes. Then, with an excellent passing game, James Taylor was able to move to his right and with a bullet shot beat the goalie, making it 1-0 to Shore. Riverview then replied with two quick goals and we went into half rime 1-2. The second half was disappointing and the final score was 1-6; a sad end to what was a very good and determined start. After our defeat the previous week the team found it hard to lift its game against Joeys. We didn't display the commitment and enthusiasm we had shown in the last few weeks and were defeated 0-2. Training for our game against High saw us prepare mentally as well as physically. After a seesawing match and with many chances it was only time before we would score. Cameron Brooks received a cross from Jonathon Thomas and, with a quick flick with his right boot, he scored, making it 1-0 to Shore. The High team then started to lose composure and we were able to keep them at bay. To the credit of the team, we kept it cool under trying times and had our first and fully deserved win. Phil Markham and Tim Middleton played well, and Scott Carroll filled in many positions throughout the game. Grammar was above us on the table, and the next game was played at a fast pace. Our best chances came from corners, however we couldn't convert them. Meanwhile great saves from Kirk Bayvel in goal kept us in the match. The boys were both committed and focused and the 0-0 score line showed just how close the game was. Anton Rogers and Chris Gill were outstanding in the midfield. David Paton and Scott Carroll had their usual solid game in defence. Our last game was agamst Newington, the team leading the competition with the lowest number of goals scored against them. On the warm Saturday afternoon, the boys were ready for a hard and vigorous game. Tim Middleton was pushed forward because of his speed and played everywhere. Cameron Brooks had his usual stylish game. Phil Markham ran himself into the ground. Jonathon Thomas defended many corners with great anticipation. Chris Gill linked well with the backs and forwards, and found space in the midfield. Anton Rogers, who over the last few games had shown his talent 236

237 potential, had another strong game. Todd Palioca continued his encouragement and determined runs up the middle. David Paton had his usual strong tackling game and Alex Smith with his speed was able to close down any dangerous attack. Tom Cehak filled in for injured Alex Brawn and we appreciated his strong defence and support play. Kirk Bayvel in goals once aga~n saved many shots and his deep kicks relieved the pressure at times. Even though the score was 0-2 the commi_tment, determination and team play was excellent. The effort all season from the players, both at training and on the field, was commendable. The season 1 s result with only three losses in the GPS competition is a tribute to how well they played as a team and the manner in which they represented the School. Todd Palioca, our captain, deserves a special mention because he not only showed strong leadership on the field but also gave great assistance throughout the season at trainihg. Mr Miller is sincerely thanked for providing expert knowledge on fitness and weights at Wednesday morning sessions. Third XI MR Bagnall (VC), CA Culvenor, OM Carter, MA Hunt, AP Johnson, TA Little, AR Moore, JGS Monrgomerie, AP Reilly, RL!Ryko, MC Taylor, CO White (VC) The 1999 soccer season proved to be one of great highs and extreme lows for the boys, their coach and supporters. After totally dominating the opposition in the first two games of the season, many of the reasons for the early success were forgotten by the boys when the quality of the opposition improved. Fortunately, their hunger for the ball and willingness to commit to hard work returned for the last game of the season. After revealing themselves to be a competent and competitive side in the pre-season, Shore opened their GPS season with a 2-0 win over Kings, in which Shore had many scoring opportunities and gave away nothing in defence. The following weekend was the highlight of the season with four separate players scoring in a 5-0 defeat of Scots. The offensive domination and strong defensive play of the Thirds had many pundits predicting an undefeated season. The following weekend's opposition would prove to be a hurdle roo great for the Thirds and many other GPS sides in St Ignatius handed us our first defeat, a respectable 2-0, but the score could have been much worse. This loss proved to be a burden that the boys carried for the next three weekends during which their play revealed a lack of commitment, effort and teamwork. Over these weekends our record was one draw and two losses and the final match of the season loomed. In the week of training leading up to this game the boys regained their positive attitude and came into the final match against Newington, keen to end the season as it began. Under the leadership of honorary captain, James Montgomerie, Shore dominated the first half but was unable to create any real scoring opportunities. Despite being down 1-0 at half time the Thirds kept their heads up and came our strongly in the second half. Their efforts could not bring them back from the brink however, 237

238 and they lost their final game 2-0. Despite the inconsistent seasont the boys always displayed a high level of sportsmanship, representing Shore with pride. A special mention should go to James Montgomerie whose commitment to the team and consistent effort in all games were an inspiration to his teammates and coach. Fourth XI MS Abbot, RB Baxter, DL Bradfield, AL Campbell, EM Hansen, JJY Hwang, PA Kerr, AM Marich, THW Pike, CCK Wong A shortage of players with the need to enlist the help of some Fifths players each week made for a strenuous season. Despite this, the Founhs acquitted themselves well. Though success seemed elusive, there were a number of memorable moments such as the hard fought draw against Scots. Then there was the fine kick by Phil Kerr over the head of the High's cheeky and overconfident keeper into their goal. In the second half, this score was added to with a determined attack that was finished off by Alastair Campbell. A rour through the team reveals Michael dashing about as centre, Richard excellent as centre-back, David kicking strongly down the field, Eric trying very hard to sweep the ball away, Joseph ever ready as centre-forward, Angus replacing one injury with another, Tom working hard and making a goalie's life look rather exciting and finally Chris plugging up the gaps so as to keep the attack going forward. Sincere thanks are extended to the regular extras, Sam Hackett and Rick McDonald from the Fifths. They were to join our ream directly after their own gruelling game and do solid work in our defensive line. Fifth XI GArgus, R Broadfoot, N Bruning (C), W Day, M Farago, S Hackett, V Khurana, P Leigh, H Macready, C Maloney, R McDonald, C Young The Fifth XI had a better season than their results might suggest. Although the team failed to win a game, the boys involved grew m confidence and competence as the season progressed and ended on a high note, playing with spirit and vigour to lose by narrow margins in each of their last six games. The team was well led throughout the season by Nick Bruning, whose untiring work in the midfield set a fine example for his fellow players. Rob Broadfoot was also of great worth in the centres, although he played in attack and in the backs too. Rob's relieving kicks got the team out of trouble on many occasions. Miles Farago and Hugh Macready also made their presence felt in the midfield, with Hugh filling in successfully in goal on one memorable occasion. The defence was in the more than capable hands of goalkeeper, George Argus, some of whose saves were beyond the call of duty and all of whose work revealed talent and tenacity. Vijay Khurana, Christaan Maloney and Chris Young made up the remainder of the backline; each playing with determination and skill to halt numerous opposition attacks. 238

239 Our attacks were predominantly inspired by Sam Hackett, who was tireless and evasive on the flanks, Peter Leigh, who had a tremendous talent for turning defence into attack, Will Day, who never let his lack of stature prevent him from nagging the opposing backs when they held possession or working with his fellow forwards when Shore was on the offensive, and Rick McDonald, who used his size and intelligence to good effect throughout the season. Will and Rick were the rwo goals scorers in the team, on each occasion notching an equaliser which could have inspired a victory but sadly did not. As mentioned earlier, the last six games of the season were very close encounters, with scores of0-2, 1-2, 1-2, 0-1,0-2 and 0-3 demonstrating our competitiveness. In fact, most of the goals that were conceded were conceded during the first 10 minutes, suggesting that had our games been played later in the mornings several of the results may have been quite different. That was not to be, however, and the team remained unable to record a victory. Nonetheless, as the members of the 1999 Fifth XI look back on their last season of Shore soccer, they will do so with fond memories of enjoyable games and good camaraderie, not only with each other but also with their small number of loyal and vocal supporters, whose contribution was inestimable. 16A XI N Chiew, P Crebar, S Drane, S Hill, J Hodges, N Leith, B Moore, S Paterson (VC), M Paton (C), C Robinson, A Spooner, A Terracini, J Whale, The whole of the season was blessed with fine weather leading to regular opening of the council training ground on Tuesdays. This made it easier for the team to prepare properly unlike last season which was regularly disrupted by the weather. The team began well against an admittedly weak opposition in St Spyridon's. The game, starting late due to a mix up of kick off times, helped to oil the wheels of understanding between rusty players, running out 4-0 winners with Sam Paterson (vice captain) scoring a hat trick and one goal to Joel Whale. The second game was against Barker at Rosewood. A number of great chances went begging for both reams but a 1-1 draw was achieved with a header,by Joel Whale following a corner. The 1-2 loss to Knox in the third game reflected a poorer team performance but it did give Joel his third consecutive goal. However the defensive four began to take shape with Drane, Robinson, Moore and Hodges as sweeper with a permanent move to the midfield for Hill (a great offcseason transfer from Barker). The 0-2 loss to Riverview in the final trial game was an especially tough game considering the dominance displayed by the Riverview team throughout the season. The team played extremely well and should be proud of such a good result. The midfield of Paton (captain), Paterson, Hill and Leith was showing a good mix of skill, determinacion and grit. At the start of Term III a few experimental positional changes were made to try to boost our firepower. Sam Paterson was moved from the mid four to cemre forward and Paul Crebar began his comeback after injury. A dominant game by Shore resulted in a 4-0 win with goals to 239

240 Terracini, Paton, Paterson and Whale again. Scots started very strongly in the next game and held our the Shore attacks to earn a 0-0 draw. The return game against Riverview repeated the earlier score line with a 0-2 loss, but the teams were certainly. getting closer in ability. The 16As were able to dominate the both halves against St Josephs to come out 1-0 winners. A goal mouth scramble led to the winning goal being scored by Simon Hill. The team had now settled into a formation with players rotating from the substitutes to give all players a fair share of game time, Ant Spooner and Nick Leith being the players subbing against ]oeys. At Centennial Park the next weekend a clearly dominant Shore came out 4-1 winners on a pitch covered in puddles. Alex Terracini scored his hat trick in this game and Joel Whale scored yet again. The home game against Grammar on a pleasant spring day was tempered by the 0-1 loss. Chris -Robinson scored the best goal of the season but unfortunately it was in his own net with a 30-metre scorcher into the top right hand corner with his attempted clearance. In the final game of the season against Newington, the l6as lost by one goal to nil in an abrasive match between two well-matched teams. To concede a late goal made the loss all the harder to take. Despite this, the team should be congratulated on the level of their performances throughout the season and the way they played for each other at all times; this augurs well for next year. Season Statistics Played II Lost 5 Won 4 For IS Drawn 2 Against XI FL Chui, TJ Frendin, AA Gould, MJ Heasman, JB Johnson, BC Lethbridge, EJ Lightfoot, VWT Liu, TJ Noad, ADC Savage, DA Slocombe (C) The 1999 season has been one of mixed emotions for the 16B. At a glance are slightly disappointing campaign. However, someone who has watched the team play throughout the season would realise the improvement and success that has taken place in individuals and in the team. The team competed in all matches a,nd was never an easy side to beat. In goal, Savage showed great promise with his courage and cat like reactions. The back four of Harley, Lightfoot, Lethbridge, and Gould worked well together, especially on our offside trap. This peaked against Riverview, whose stronger individuals were limited w scoring three goals as they were caught offside 21 times. In midfield Slocombe, johnson, Noad, Liu, and Chui all played well, and helped create chances as well as support the defence. Chui showed his skills to the best in our 1-1 draw against Scots, when his left foot chip found _its way into the top corner from 30 metres. In the forward line Heasman and Frendin combined well, and worked off each other with promising effect. Heasman scored twice in the 3-0 win over Newington, and Frendin did the same when we overcame Kings 4-0. It was obviously much harder against the likes of Barker and Knox, but they still chased all day, even when they did not have the ball at their feet. The team worked well and improved consistently. David Slocombe captained the team, and ser a good example. 240

241 ISA XI MR Allely, JC Bachmann, GDL Burns, GA Burrows, TN Coventry, PWD Dimock (C), CR Moody, NJ Parrott, SC Sproule, RC Sumpter, j "Iakayasu, HP Willis The 15As had an omstanding season this year. The team basically selected itself from last year and so was organised very early in the pre-season with little change in the player complement since the first game. 'T'his stability enabled the team to settle quickly into a routine and start developing strategies for the tough weeks ahead. The first pre-season game was very encouraging with an easy S-0 win over. Scots. V\'har impressed so much was the way the ream played together as a group, with a lot of unselfish play and plenty of support for each other in both attack and defence. Many good passing moves were evident, even at this stage, and the defenders were covering for each other when the team would make forward raids to the opposition 1 s goal area.. The next couple of games were against serious soccer teams from Barker and Knox. Despite narrowly losing both matches, the team was encouraged.by the way they stuck to their game plan and acquined themselves well. There was also some real talenr scarring to emerge in the team and things remained very positive. The next, and last, pre-season game was against Riverview, tradidonally a very tough competitor. Despite Shore taking an early lead after a brilliant cross from john Bachmann on the left wing, near the end the game was lost. However, Shore had the best of the field play and the team was happy with its performance. After a few weeks off, the team was ready to attack the competition, and the first victim was Kings who were dispatched 5-l. The team played superbly and completely outclassed the opposition. Next came Scots who were beaten 2-0 in a quiet game which was enough to win comfortably. The next game was against Riverview and the team was out to reverse the loss in the pre-season. This was the best game the team played all season. They could do no wrong and each player did his part to earn a well-deserved 3-1 win. When playing the following match against jocys the boys, still elated after their win over Riverview the week before, showed no mercy. The result, a 9-0 win. The only disappointment of the season was next; the game that got away. Played on a paddock disguised as a soccer field in Centennial Park, the boys made a mistake in the goal area and High managed a scrappy goal from which the team never recovered. The game plan broke down and the boys panicked while trying ro regain the lead. This allowed High to keep them our and the game was eventually lost 0-2. The following week saw the ream regain its composure after some serious training and come away victors against a vel)' strong Grammar side 1-0. This goal was scored near the end of the game by Nathan Parrott and was arguably the goal of the season, with a 25-metre rocket that comprehensively beat the defence and the Grammar keeper. The season's last game was very evenly matched against Newington with a 1-1 fair result. Shore 1 s captain, Peter Dimock, led the team by example yet again with a superb equalising goal. The defence opened up for a split second on the edge of the box and he rammed the the ball home into the far corner before the defending keeper had even moved. 241

242 Every player made a contribution to this most successful season and showed the soccer skills that will make them players in future GPS sides. Many thanks to the very supponive and emhusiasric band of parems and friends who provided the assistance to rhe team each week. 158 XI RE Begg, J Cai, AG Carr, TS Charody, ARB Chiew, KP Cooper, TN Doyle, DRH Gillan, A J Gross, RL Gulson, JR 1-Iercus, AF Isenberg. The lsb soccer team learnt early that to succeed it was necessary to play the game as a team and not as individuals. The team finished the season undefeated with 34 goals for and only four against. The goals were mostly scored by the speedy forwards, with the mid fielders and rhe backs adding their share. Dave Gillan and Kingsley Cooper, our fleet-of-foot forwards, were able to capitalise on fast breaks out of defence to score many of the goals. Our midfield players Jack Cai, Tim Charody, Robert Gulson, Robert Begg and Jonathan Hercus controlled most games making sure that we were always going forward. Our backs Tim Doyle, Allen Gross, Alex Isenberg and Alex Chiew defended goal with real determination. Adam Carr our keeper was called on to make some tough saves and only let in a meagre four goals all season. The team is to be congratulated on a great season and rhe team extends its thanks to Mr Field for his coaching. ISC XI SR Ardlie, TS Bauer, MS Bewley, NIL Booth, RE Butchatsky, WGM Cowper, B M Gammans, AR Gardner, RD Greenland, AR Lees, JJ O'Neill, CJ Page The 1999 season proved to be an outstanding one for the 15Cs. The team went through both the pre-season and competition rounds completely undefeated. This amazing performance was due to a combination of skill and determination by all players. The team never gave up and never gave the opposition 1 S reputation a moment 1 s thought. Even when playing the fancied soccer sides such as Barker and Knox, the team never, for a minute, thought they would be beaten or that they couldn 1 t do it. The results of the Term III games were: DATE RESULT 24() Shore 8 TKS 0 31() Shore 2- TKS B I 7/8 Shore I - SIC 0 14/8 Shore 4- SICO 21/8 Shore 3- SHS 0 28/8 Shore 5- SGS 2 6/9 Shore 3- NCO During this season, Shore scored 26 goals and only had three scored against them. The leading goal scorers were Butchatsky on 10 goals and Gardner on six. The great thing about this team was the fact that each week they played together as a team. There was no selfish play from anyone. The other outsranding feature was the way each player stuck to his job. Every player moved up in attack and back in defense, making it very hard for any opposition to gain an advantage. 242

243 Each and every player in the side is to be congratulated and encouraged to stick together in the future as they make a great winning combination. Thank is also expressed w all the parents and supporters who made the effort each week. lsd XI M Bjerke, LA Fleiter, DL Hall, AP Hand, PO Henderson, CJ Hutchinson, AR Lees, CJ Pegg, GW Radke, TRH Sant, JS Wardlaw, TJV Williams, BCF Wong The team recorded six wins, three losses and one draw, scoring 11 goals and conceding just five. The three losses (versus Barker, Knox and St Andrews) were against quality reams and were very close encounters. The ream showed plenty of sptrtt, teamwork and commitment, and were never overawed by their opponents. A good team relies upon a safe defence. Bradley Wong, Gavin Radke, Martin Bjorke, Derek Hall and John Wardlaw shared the bulk of the duties of the backline and were largely impregnable. Their no-nonsense approach, coupled with the ability to kick long balls, rarely allowed opponents to shoot at our goal. Derek and Gavin used their big kicking games to great advantage. Bradley was ever consistent, rarely losing a one-on-one contest. He also made valuable contributions in the midfield. Martin showed great versatility with an uncanny ability to know where the ball was gomg. John was indispensable as sweeper; defusing many dangerous situations with long clearing kicks as a foundation for attacking raids by the forwards. The "facr that only five goals were conceded speaks volumes about Luke Fleiter's contribution as goalkeeper. His positioning was inruirive and he wasn 1 r afraid to put his body on the line. The midfield worked very hard this season. 'Tbby Sant consistendy sparked the side from centre midfield. Alex Lees routinely wok on and beat his opposite number w set up goal scoring opportunities. Peter Henderson played well on the wing, with a willingness w support the forwards and fight for the ball in one-on-one situations. The forwards provided a wealth of excitement and while 11 goals were scored in 10 games, with a little more luck that figure could have been doubled. Tom Williams' passing game became more dangerous as the season progressed and he gained more confidence. Chris Hutchinson set up many scoring opportunities by forcing the defence inro error. Campbell Pegg showed great skill in the midfield, bur his greatest attribute was his ability to finish goal-scoring opportunities as a forward. Rob Butchatsky frequently found the back of the opposition net with bullet-like strikes and was quickly recruited by the ISCs. The most dangerous player this season was Anthony Hand. He was willing to chase the ball all over the ground showing controlled aggression to win the ball often against two or three opposing players. However, it was his blinding acceleration that created many scoring opportunities. The team was given a helping hand by Richard Smith, Caspar Tresidder, Richard Greenland, Nathan Booth, 243

244 Stuart Ardlie, Tim Bauer, Dave Gillan, Adam Carr, Jay O'Neill and Will Cowper at various times during the season, and their contributions were appreciated. 14A XI S Bagnall, D Borgogni, D Burnett, D Campbell, S Chalmers, C Coombes, M Costello, L Cottee, A Harley, S Hungerford, A Kortt, S Lindley, N Rayment The 14As had an excellent season and although the overall results were mixed, the end result was enjoyable. With an excellent opening 6-0 win against Barker in the pre-season, it was obvious that this was a skilled ream. Overly confident, the team soon lost Wadham, Weber and Kitching to the 13As and met with disgruntled third formers forced by CPS ruling to play in their age group. Thank goodness for Form III. Kortt, Cottec, Chalmers, Burnett and Hungerford were outstanding replacements. \~'e then started the long road to succes by mastering throw-ins, learning ro communicate and how to mark the opposition. After losing ro The King's School (1-3) we went back ro the drawing board and developed a wider reperroire of kick-offs. Something must have clicked because a 1-1 draw against Scots with Campbell scoring was encouraging to all. This was followed by Riverview who won 5-0 but despite the score, it was still one of our best games. They never gave up! Neither did the coach, who ar training increased the nagging and the drills. After this, amazing things started to happen... players began to talk on the field... began using their heads (literally) and the idea of how to be a team player began to emerge. Afrer thrashing Joeys 8-0 we thought we were invincible, only to lose the following week in our most memorable game of the year at Sydney High. Who can forget that game with no ball and no whistle for the referee! Who could forget the opposition and their coach as they attempted to force infringements? This was a great day for Shore as the boys stuck to their game plan and held their dignity. Special mention for Andrew Harley who made an excellent contribution to the team as cap rain in the first half of the season. Following on from Andrew came Lachlan Cottee, who just gm better with each game. Our goalie Scott Bagnall kept the scoreboard from catching up with us with dives, rolls and jumps. Top scorers for the season were Kortt, Coombes and Campbell. Solid players who continued to develop each week included Borgogni and Lindley with Costello and Rayment playing their personal best every week. Every player made a considerable contribution with the speed of Chalmers and Kom a particular highlight. Thanks to the players for a most enjoyable season and, in particular, thank a very enthusiastic group of parents and friends who were willing to support us. Special thanks to Tom Cameron in Form VI as assistant coach. Well done everyone. 148 XI T Alexander, M. Aroney, B. Austin, A Bousgas, P Corbett, R Dunn, D Gunst, A Luchetti, J McCullough, B Middleton, Jamie Rae (C), A Stevens, S Streeter 244

245 \Ve enjoyed just the one win and a draw over the season, and yet we played some pretty good soccer despite this. One of our strengths was a developing sense of positional play with the mids and forwards showing an ability to pass and work the ball up the field. This did not always result in the scoring of goals, but the technique and understanding is there, and can be improved upon in future seasons. The respective goalkeepers showed great courage under fire and produced some spectacular saves at times. The team members must be commended for their obvious spirit. Despite being down a goal or two there was never that slump in performance quite often seen in other teams. The boys worked hard at tackling with vigour, working on the adage that the ball does not by right belong to the other player. On the other hand, peak fitness was never really achieved and there was a marked reluctance to work on this at training. Ideally, this should be supported by an adequate fitness regime at home. Ball control could also have been improved, but this will come with time and practice. 14C XI TOW Arnold (C), AP Clinton, JD Dalgliesh, GH Hanson, JB McCullough, LSM Montgomery, CD O'Neil, JS Sharpe, BJ Tedder, CME Tresidder, C Wong, JMR Woods, JM Wynter During the season the team showed a great enthusiasm for the game. The boys tried their best and finished the season understanding of the game improved, they made amazing progress, realising the importance of playing together. After a draw against Cranbrook, the 14Cs lost against two of the best teams of the season, Knox and Barker. Nevertheless, signs of improvement and of confidence were showing. These efforts finally paid off against Kings with a hard fought victory (3-2) (J Dalgliesh, R Dunn and C O'Neil). Two more games were lost, but with a small goal difference. The team really proved it could win when it played against SIC for the third time and finally won 5-1 (against their Ds though). The best achievement was winning against Sydney High (3-0), a team that had been unbeaten so far. Altogether, the team lost five games, drew two and won five. Throughout the season, the forwards, Chris O'Neil, James Dalgliesh and Guy Hanson, were busy trying new tactics to beat the opposition. These finally succeeded. Chris often waited in ambush and scored six goals. James scored three goals and demonstrated his ability to pierce the defence while Guy played a central role in leading the offence on the left. In the midfield, only John Sharpe survived the whole season. He became a passionate player, scoring the first and liberating goal against SGS. Luke Cameron went to the 14Ds; Matthew Aroney went up to the 14Bs in exchange for Caspar Tresidder, Ben Tedder and James McCullough. Caspar Tresidder was a precious ally both in offence and in defence, attacking all the tim e. He teamed up with James McCullough who wisely used his kicking on a wmntng streak. As their power, scoring two goals from the 245

246 midfield. Although he could have run a bit faster, james was an invaluable resource. Ben Tedder also proved a great midfielder, playing relentlessly despite some stretching problems. Tim Arnold took up the position of captain when Matthew Aroney left and blocked most of the counter-offensives. James Wood made stunning progress through the season. His tackles 'nipped countless dangerous attacks in the bud'. As for Jason Wynter, he also demonstrated great skills in defence. leading counter-attacks by passing the ball instead of just clearing it. Collin Wang joined us at the end of the season and was a great defender, constantly protecting the goalkeeper and helping the midfielders control the game. Lachlan Montgomery left his usual position as a sweeper and became an invaluable goalkeeper. As for Angus Clinton, he made tremendous progress. He started as goalkeeper, but after his potential for attack was noticed became a great forward. A special memion to John Sharpe and Tim Arnold who successfully completed their referee course. This was an outstanding season for all the players and thanks to all the parents for their unconditional support. 140 XI C Azzi, M Benson, L Cameron, N Conomos, J Duffield, L Montgomery, D Rathbourne, L Reilly, G Samuel, R Smith, L Smyth, B Tisch, K Yumoto If it is possible to have a great season without winning a single game the 14Ds did it. The team improved in every area of play and maimained a good spirit in the face of adversity. Early in the preseason the team began by losing 7-0, 6-0 and 7-0. There was much work to be done and the players responded admirably. The first task was to establish good defence to hold the enemy at bay. Lachlan Montgomery took up the difficult task of defending our posts. His tremendous commitmem is seen in the fact that he also played for the Cs making two full games every week. We played a defence of three backs, Lachlan Reilly, Richard Smith and Josh Duffield. In some games the tactical astuteness of these three was as good as has been seen in any premier league defence. In many games where the opposition had more pace or skills, the teamwork and commitment of the 14Ds held them back. Our midfield was balanced with some good speed and kicking ability. Kairu and Nick defended excellently but in midfield there was a need to control possession better. Forwards were Murrough, Luke and Byron who did excellently for the amount of ball they received. The top scoring was shared by Byron and Murrough and they each hit the ball very well with their left and right boots respectively. The middle and the end of the seasons were different from the starr. Three games were drawn and although the team totally dominated the game against St Patricks, it still lost 3-2. Commendations to Richard, Murrough, Lachlan (M), josh, and Gareth for the attitude of good sportsmanship which 246

247 they took with them everywhere they went. The 14Ds started.as 11 soccer players and ended as a Shore team. IJA XI M J Armstrong, A K J Batterby, W M Chambers, C G Falloon, T J C Frendin, C R M Jansen, N S Kitching, T R Parsons, AM Press, N J Wad ham, B C Weber The 1999 season proved to be a most enjoyable and encouraging one for the team. As the players developed in skill and confidence a lot of talent became evident which will stand the boys in good stead for future competitions. The training sessions had as their priority an attacking style of play with an emphasis on maintaining possession with fluid movements of the ball. This required prolonged work at each session. The results of the matches indicate. that this may have been beyond the scope of one season w achieve but can be developed over several seasons. The enthusiasm of the boys and their attitude of never giving up or dropping their heads and becoming despondem were most impressive. The boys maintained their resolve and spirit and fought to the final whistle each game. Gratitude is expressed to all who supported the team over the season and the boys are wished all the best for the future. 138 XI CV Barling, RW Bisley, RJ Broadfoot, TE Clemens, AJ Dee (C), AD Johnson, MP Johnson, AH Morton, TR Moore, AHS Morrison, Wj Palioca, AEG Spraggon Also played: CG Falloon, BF Jacobs, CRM Jansen, CA Stevenson The 13Bs had a very successful season. The early games saw some changes to the side and later, illness had an impact on player availability. The first game saw a convincing win against Waverley with Carl Falloon scoring a hat trick. Toby Frendin playing in goal demonstrated his obvious ability and was promoted to the A side. This game was a good start to the season with a convincing win, 6-2. The next game against Barker was to prove difficult. Lack of organisation in defence saw Barker lead 2-0 at half time. The second half saw a much-improved effort with a goal to Shore by Carl Falloon. This encouraged Shore who began to dominate play bm the game ended in a 2-1 loss. The following game against Knox saw more improvements and we were unlucky to go down by a goal early in the first half. The team responded with continual pressure and although the game could have easily gone either way there was no further score. The final game of the pre-season saw us meet a strong Riverview side in very windy conditions. Alex Morrison, having been promoted from the C side, proved to be a great asset but despite heroic efforts by our defenders, Riverview managed to score just before half time. The second half gave us the support of the wind and the defence were now able 247

248 to clear the ball. Chris Jansen eventually played an excellent wide ball to Alex Spraggon, who put it past the keeper and into the net for a 1-1 draw. The quality of play by Carl Falloon and Chris Jansen saw them both selected to the A side. The first round of the GPS season was against Kings. The team began a little nervously but the defence provided good ball for the midfielders and Shore were able to mount attacks. Having received the ball from a King's defender, Rob Bisley controlled the ball well out from goal and struck it perfectly to give the King's goalkeeper no chance. This goal inspired the players and Shore. began to dominate completely. The attacks led to Alex Spraggon scoring a good goal. This further motivated the Shore players and Alex Spraggon went on to score three more goals giving him a double hat-trick for the game. The final score was S-0. The good form continued in the game against Scots. The ream was combining well with Mark Johnson and Ricky Broadfoot creaung early opportunities. 'T'his allowed Alex Spraggon to score in the first few moments of the game. Alex Morrison had an excellem game, defending very efficiemly and moving wide as we buil.t attacks. 'T'he team should have been more convincing but the early goal led to complacency. Finally an attack from wide led to Alex Spraggon scoring yet another goal. The final score: 2-0 to Shore. In the next game we again met Riverview. This was a very close game where neither could score and the game finished in a draw. After a weekend off due to St Josephs not having a team, we next 248 played High and Alex Spraggon scored a hat trick, and Rob Bisley and Ben Weber scored one each. All boys played very well displaying some good passing football. The final score a 5-1 victory. The game against Grammar proved to be a significant challenge with Grammar mounting continual pressure in the early stages. The defenders played with great determination with Alex Morrison and Alex Dee playing well and Tim Clemens having another excellent game in goal. Will Palioca and Tom Moore had good games while Ricky Broadfoot made many good runs, as we. nied. to attack. The Grammar side proved to be too strong and at half time we had conceded two goals. The second half was close but goals proved elusive, Grammar scoring another goal to win 3-0. The final match was against a strong, undefeated Newington. This was an excellent game to finish on and the Shore players all acquitted themselves well. Both sides played with great enthusiasm but the game finished in a scoreless draw. The 13Bs can be well pleased with their season and the development they have made. All boys made significant improvement and can look forward to further success in the future IJC XI M Andrews, M Argenti, J Carroll(C), J Cehak, J Grennan, B Jacobs, T Lawrence, N Payne, R Lewis, A Shavigan, C Stevenson, C Tanner The 13Cs had a highly successful season. All members of the side were enthusiastic and determined on r.he field and this was a major reason for many

249 'ictories. lt was great to sec the players' confidence increase as the season progressed and the side bec:m1e :1ccusromed ro winning. T he defenders were the solid foundation of the team. They were rare ly outmuscled and were quick ro stop all attacking raids. j ames Grennan used his speed to turn defence into ;mack, while j ames Cehak's coolness under pressure enabled him ro clear the b;tll and frustrate the opposition. Richard Le,\is and t\ lark Andrews were intimidating wirh their size and followed this up with outstanding kicks ro keep pressure on the opponents. The midfield consisccd of very defined attacking and Jefensively minded players. Cameron Tanner and Andrew Shavigan were always focused on defence, linking with the backs to scop attackers. On the wings Chris Stevenson and Tom Lawrence made exciting ;macks. using their ball skills and pace ro take on defenders and create opportunities. The forwards often showed their attacking flair bur they were also very ta lented at hitting the woodwork. 'Sick Payne was a prolific scorer, getting a goal in almost every game he played. j ames Carroll was a valuable asset as left forward, always positioning himself well and threatening the opposition goalkeeper. Brandon j acobs was exciting ro warch with rhe ball at his feet. His abi lity co use both his left and right boot saw him A) pasr countless defenders and he definitely deserved to score more goals than he did. ~ l ichael i\rgcnci was a versatile member of the side, often filling-in in the forwards. l lis delicare wuchcs created opportunities in the goalmouth and be wa1> rewarded with a goal against Ri ven iew. Brandon j acobs and James Carroll did an admirable job as goalkeeper, though both were reluctant to be in the posicion. Brandon's skills at organising the backs were excellent and James' quick reflexes stopped many potenti<t l goals. The boys should be proud of their efforrs for rhc season. They showed talent and determinacion on rhe field ar all rimes and were rightfully rewarded with their c;uccess. 130 XI Bachmann (C), W Smith, L Gadd, P ft.jurchison S ~lcciincock, H H eath wood, D Baker, T r lughcs J Henderson. 11 Davie A Coum, A Wallace, T Lightfoot, S Kirkland After a shaky start to the season and some hard ffi <lwhes against strong teams like Barker, the 13 Ds went from strength co srrcngth as the season progressed. By the e nd of 'Jcrm 1, the ream had configured according co rhe strengths of individual players. Constant ball kill drills in practice combined with work on team building en ured that a confidem side went into the all-important Term rn fixtures. The ream became increasingly confident and strong in attack: the combination of Nick Bachmann (captain). lluw Davie and occasionajly j e remy Henderson proved a little too much for rhc opposition's defence. With Harry Hcttch-.,ood, Daniel Baker, Tom Hughes and Scon Kirkland rhe mainstay in midfield, passing skills and attacking moves from the defence led co muny a 249

250 goal, with the classic 'one two' bringing easy and satisfying goals. Taryn Lightfoot's big kicking skills proved inv:1luable in defence when lapses led to dangerous rimes in our goal :trea. H e was ably assisted by Patrick Murchison, Sam McClintock, the tenacious Lachlan Gadd and Alisrair \\'all ace. Wi ll Smirh made rremcndous progress as goalkeeper and as the season progressed hi~ keeping became braver and more effective. Overall, it was a fantastic season, and the wins well dc!>crved. The ream learnt a lor both in terms of practical ball skills and seiaess teamsmanship. Many thanks to the parcnrs for their tireless and always positive support, t-.'lrs Gadd for the supply of half-rime oranges and Nick Bachmann for his mature, calm and reliable c:aptaincy. lnspirntionoiivilld{)fil) hy S Wood 250

All players tried hard both at training and in their Saturday matches and were rewarded with a number of successes. The Fourths were unfortunately unable to make the final bur the Firsts should be congratulated on. wmnmg their division 10 the compenuon. Under 16 GR Allsop, EV Bertouch, CDH Buck, OP Hood, JM Linton, BJ McAlpine, PAA Smith, TW Walker (C) This season the team had a number of changes made in the early part of the season which meant that it was considerably larger than would have been desirable. Nevertheless, all the boys showed appropriate emhusiasm and improved their skills during the season. They were rewarded with a place in the final but were unfortunately pipped by one set by the strong Riverview team. The team was ably led by Tom Walker and he showed good leadership skills and justified his selection as captatn. 150 T Pemberton (C), Falkingham, Cooper, Hunt The Under 15s Winter Tennis squad had a season of fierce opposition and, as a consequence, some very good tennis. Although the final scores m the competition were not as desirable as all team members would have liked, the standard of each player 1 s game improved considerably over the season. 'T'he early starts on brisk winter Saturday mornings were a jolt to the system, but all players enjoyed the competition on the courts. The As played admirably against some very experienced players in the Super Camp and are w be congratulated on their unity as a ream and their determination on coun:. The Bs had some pleasing individual set results and cenainly did their best against a strong opposition. The players in the C team displayed some fine sportsmanship in the face of adversity, while the D team players are to be congratulated on their steadfast efforts on the court. Thanks go to our coaches, Miss Stone and Mrs Stephenson, for their wonderful efforts in organising a variety of useful and interesting activities during 251

252 all the training sessions. All the boys are to be congratulated for their high standard of play, dress and behaviour through out the competition. Under 14 14A C Ferris, T Page, D Hovey, F Rourke 14B N Esmore, TWang, G Cartwright Reserves: E Goodridge, D Forward The boys played with great spirit and enthusiasm all season. Although rain affected some games, the boys had some notable successes with the Bs winning their final in fine style. All of the boys improved over the season with \~'ang and Esmore cha1lenging each other on a regular basis, Page daring the opposition to return his magnificent groundstrokes and Ferris wearing them down with calm, consistently good play. Overall, it was a very successful season. Well done and good luck next year. Under 13 13A: Shore 8 TCC Wills, CJ Gillings, CC Mengler; JW Hensley 13B: Shore 1 TH Daymond (C), OJ Hargreaves, TL Hargreaves, MA Gardiner, AW Linton, JA Webster, AK Chan The 13As Tennis team played with great enthusiasm throughout the season, and each player urged each other on at practice. This team, made up of Tim Wills, Chris Gillings, Christian Mengler and James Hensley played consistent tennis throughout eight competition rounds. They then proceeded to take on Roseville Park 9 Tennis "f'eam to win their finals and their division. This team played to the best of its abilities and were able to force the opposition from week to week to make a number of errors. The 13Bs, whilst attempting very hard to notch up consistent wins, tended to be plagued by mistakes in play. All players trained hard throughout the season, but met stiff competition from North Sydney Boys High 5, Love'n Deuce 9, St Pius 9, Roseville Park 10, Rawson Park 2, Mad 13. These opposing teams proved to have more effective development of their shots. 'fhe team rotated around from week to week and Tim Daymond carried om his duties of captain in a very professional manner. At times David Hargreaves, Matthew Gardiner, Tim Hargreaves and Andrew Linton were able to frustrate the opposition with their tricky shots. The contributions of Joel Webster and Adrian Chan are to be commended. Many thanks to Mr Mounjed for coaching the teams as well as the Form V coaches Tim Bigg, Chris Wong, and Marcus Flanagan who helped make it such a fun season. 252

253 PREPARATORY SCHOOL 1999 has been a year of vitality, energy and great enthusiasm from all the Preparatory School community, staff, parents and especially the boys. The educational programs~ structured around practical yet challenging activities, have aimed co develop a co-operative ream approach to learning for our primary aged boys. As a primary school of less than 200, it is valuable for all boys w support and encourage each another. After refining our positive discipline code at the beginning of the year, the boys and staff have worked hard to embrace the foundations of this code. All boys are expected to show respect for all members of the Shore community and to take responsibility for their own actions. Under the direction of the Deputy operative skills and ream work. A number of new developments have been incorporated 1nw the Preparatory School this year. These include: Communication \Vith the revitalised version of the Prep Peek, more members of the Shore Preparacory School community have been encouraged to ~ read the information. Our digital camera has also helped w make this weekly journal more attractive and spontaneous. Literacy enrichment program This program for our more, able English students has challenged boys w develop both their written and verbal skills Master of the Preparawry School this within a co-operative small group code has been supported well by the boys and staff. Teamwork remains an essential aspect of our Preparatory School community. This has been reflected in both our cultural activities and our games program. From participating.in the 6th Class choir to performing in Prep Proms, our boys are learning to work with the people around them. This has been consolidated in our games program with emphasis on how the game is played rather than the result. However, the emphasis in the classroom also supports our desire for the boys to develop co- environment. Toumament of minds This optional after-s-chool activity provided an opportunity for students with a passion for learning and problem solving w develop their skills by participating in a national inter-school program. Our focus was 1n the language/literature field. Specialist art teacher Each classroom teacher has worked with the art specialist to provide a visual arts program aimed at developing each boy's, 253

254 ability to visualise and express himself within this medium. Movement program (dance) This program has been extended to involve all boys in the Preparatory SchooL Commencing in 1999, the 6th Class also participated in this activity. Computers in the classrooms The imporcance of technology in primary school education, particularly in primary education where research consistently supports early intervention, has been realised this year. With several computers in each classroom the boys have had access to the Internet, CD ROMS, word-processing and other software packages. Educational software to assist boys in literacy, mathematics and the development of logic, have also been embraced. PowerPoint presentations, storing information on CD ROMS and using publishing programs have been used extensively this year. Computers and their software have helped our boys to become more independent in their own research and learning. Report format Our new outcome-based report format provides a more effective means for expressing the achievements of each boy throughout the semester. Combined with the results of the UNSW English, Mathematics and Science competitions, boys and their parents have a greater understanding of both performance in the classroom and overall ability and attitude to study. The academic foundations laid in the Preparatory School have continued to provide a very good platform for the academic demands of the Senior School. Consistently, former Preparatory School students perform well in all Senior School years, but importantly in Forms I and II. The music program continues to be an imponant aspect of our overall program in the Preparatory School. Providing a quality music program is an essential part of our Primary School's curriculum. Our music co-ordinator remains zealous about the importance of the creative arts for primary aged boys. The games program has allowed boys to develop individual and team skills. In the Preparatory School we focus on games as being a means to an end rather than an end in themselves. Sportsmanship is greatly valued and expected of all our boys. The Sportsmaster has instilled an attitude of 'play hard, play. fair' among the boys and staff to encourage maximum enjoyment from these activities. Staff Mr Oarran Rawson resigned in the Christmas holidays to pursue his teaching career at St Aloysius Junior School. Mr Rawson's legendary muscles will live long in the minds of many Shore boys. Mr Ian Stephens from Sydney Grammar, Edgecliff was appointed the Deputy Master of the Preparatory School from the CC?mmencement of this year. Mr Stephens has been responsible for the Paswral Care aspects of the Preparatory School. Conclusion The staff's commitment to the boys is obvious and the boys have greatly benefited from the positive environment 254

255 of our primary school. As society moves forward and values are increasingly questioned, the Prep staff are at the receiving end of these changing expectations. The Christian founda ion of the School remains, stoically, the basis of our School. The sraff deserves high commenda(ion for a job (hat is cri(ical for the future of our society. The Preparatory School secretaries also deserve due recognition for all their assismnce and perseverance. We wish 6th Class every success on their journey through the Senior School. Many of these boys have contributed very well throughout their four years in our Primary School and on behalf of the Preparatory School - we say thank you. We shall watch with interest each boy 1 s development in the years ahead.

The boys spent an enormous amount of time preparing and practising their debates, with fanmstic resulrs. We 255

256 enjoyed many successes in very close and difficult debates. The annual Debating Day was held this year at St Peter 1 s Anglican School at Campbelltown and provided an opportunity for over 100 boys and girls to mix socially as well as to debate against each other. Many thanks to our adjudicators and to all the parents for their help and support during the debating season. George Smith Greenwell Memorial Library As always, this has been an extremely busy and exciting year in the Prep Library. The 1999 Library Prefects were James Wood (Head Library Prefect), Christopher B Ellis, Thomas Guy, Adam L 1 Green, William Kitching, Peter 0 1 Neil, Alexander Shields, Alistair Stewart, Angus Vowell, Angus Whitehead and Samuel Wirth. Among the many developments in the Library exciting this year were the installation of a new library program, Alice for Windows, as well as Book WizardRa graphics program for helping boys choose fiction and nonfiction books. The theme for Book Week this year was 1 Weave the Book Web 1 and our guest author was Geoffrey McSkimming (Cairo Jim). He was wonderfully entertaining and interesting, talking about his famous Cairo Jim books and fascinating tales of his travels to exotic places. During the Book Week celebrations, we also enjoyed visits by the well-known authors, James Moloney and Gretel Killeen, who discussed their books and writing styles. Throughout the year, all Prep boys have enjoyed ordering and reading books from Scholastic Book Club. Thank you to all those who donated books to our Prep Library as part of our American Tea celebrations. The response was wonderful. A very special thank-you is extended to our Head Library Mums, Mrs Benson and Mrs Sranisrreet, for their help, enthusiasm and organisational skills every week. Thank you also to all the Library Mums for their wonderful help, and to our Display Mums, Mrs Fennel, Mrs Rains and Mrs Cohen, for their time and expertise throughout the year. Music Head Chorister- Thomas Blanch Deputy Chorister- Thomas Cooper Music Prefects- Oscar Austin,Richard Morris, Erwin Yau The School's 11 Oth Birthday celebrations in the Sydney Town Hall on 5th May, provided our Prep musicians with a unique opportunity w perform to a large audience in a superb venue. The forty boys in 6th class in the Choir joined forces with the Senior School and Cemenary Choirs to perform the negro spiritual 1 1 Wanna Be Ready' with one of our parents, Louise Ledgerwood as soprano soloist. This was especially exciting for her son James, who is in 6th class. Handel 1 s 1 Hallelujah Chorus 1 and Parry 1 s Coronation Anthem 1 1 VVas Glad', conducted by Daniel Dries, were the other two combined choral items. 'T'hese anthems sounded quite splendid with the support of the magnificent Town Hall organ, played by Robert Fox. Edward Copeman, one of the 6th class choristers, had a once-in-a-lifetime 1 experience of playing th~ organ when Mr 256

257 Fox invited him to demonsrrate some of its differem sounds. The choriste rs were extended both in vocal technique and endurance for this special occasion, and their contribution to the evening was ro their credit. Movement and dance bas been a feawre of the music program for many years, and Miss Sandy Sellers devised an original choreography based around a birthday theme. The cen elective dance boys were dressed as clowns, and gave a colourful and humorous performance which delighted the audience. Our movement program is shown on rhe evening of rhc Proms when 3rd, 4th and both 5th classes will combine co present a Star Wan- panorama. and the three 6th classes wi U dance as j ames Bond. Miss Sellers joined the sraff this year, while Miss Sperber has been on leave, and Miss Sellers is sincerely thanked for her imaginative and energetic dance program which has been enjoyed by all. The choir have sung at weddings, the Prep Family Service, both Prom Concerts and the Carol Service chis year. With such opportunities, the standard of singing from rhe 6rh class boys in particular bas been very encouraging, and the boys are singing a higher standard of repertoire chan previously performed. The Ryde Eisteddfod has been a very posirive performance experience for our Orchestra, Band and Chamber Music ensembles. Of the eight chamber groups who entered, four received placings-cwo highly commended, a second place co the Clarinet Trio, and the Aeolian Srring Quartet were first io their section. The Orchestra received an 80% mark. and the Band an 84% with second place. These results were quire outstanding, and reflecr the quality of instrumental reaching in the Prep. The C hamber Music ensembles participate in two concerts, one ac the end of each semester. These occasions are all the more enhanced with the boys wearing a concert uniform of long black panes, long-sleeved white shirts, school bow tie, and brighdy coloured satin vests, w hich are colour co-ordinated with rhe boy's instrument. lr is hoped tbat this activity wi ll become a tradition in the Prep. and rhat it sees a firm foundation for the development of the music program through che Senior School. Individuals are given the opportunity to perform in class concerrs twice a year, with parents coming to make up a 'biased' audience. Boys are also encouraged w sic for practical examinations in their instruments, and there have been some excellent results. This year one of our Prep scudenrs has begun piano srudies at The Australian Institute of Music. Lukas Opacic in SF gave his debut Piano Recital in the Smith Auditorium oo 26th May, playing a 45-minute program of Bach, Mo~art, Schubert, Mendelssohn and C hopin. T his remarkable musician has greatly enhanced appreciation of music performance in the Prep School, and he has been an inspiration ro both his peers and the staff. The Hunting of the Snark The Grade 6 Drama Production for 1999 was a presentation of Lewis Carrol's 1872 poem 'The H unting of the Sn;uk'. T he production was directed. produced and choreographed by Mr Chri 257

258 Reynolds, and the musicians and singers were conducted by Mrs Margaret Orchard. The play fearured a number of leading characters: James Thompson as the Bellman, Michael Karsten as the Baker, James Ledgerwood as the Butcher, Thomas Blanch as the Beaver, Alex Burke as Boors, with extra solos by Thomas Cooper and Andrew Davis. A highlight of the production was the narration, which was ably performed by 17 boys, displaying great dramatic professionalism in learning lengthy pares in a short period of time. The set and lighting were constructed by Mr Peter Ross, whose efforts helped to create the mysrery and drama of a hunt, transforming rhe performance from a mere play inco a professional production. The whole performance was nor only entertaining, but was a valuable learning experience for all the boys involved. Thank you to all members of case and crew for a most enjoyable evening.

The Open 400m races proved to be quite remarkable as Shore won all four divisions and the crowd certainly was abuzz. These same boys won the Grammar 400m. Other consistent athletes were Hugh Stackpool, Adam L 'Green, james Riches and the entire team. Adam Frazer was a conscientious and enthusiastic captain of Athletics this year and the team always trained and contested their events with spirit and pride.

A fine season. enthusiastic and talented group and this continued m the Thirds Cricket. Training is such a vital part of a team game and the boys always approached 260

261 Wednesday and Friday afternoon craining to have fun and further develop their skills. Michael Karsten was a wonderful and enthusiastic captain who ensured that all boys were given fair bowling turns and rotated the batting order. Michael's bowling and batting proved to be the difference in winning many games. Hugh Stackpool was a tenacious fielder, often throwing his body in front of a certain four and, together with his accurate bowling, proved a valuable member. Adam L 'Green was our keeper and mid order batter scoring an average of 31 runs per game. He scored 46 n.o. against Kings to help record another win. Ian Hume who became known as our 'quiet achiever' was a superb all-rounder. Phil Martin was a brilliant fielder taking some incredible catches whilst Adam Frazer, Charlie Nordfeldt, Peter Madden and Sam Taylor were consistently bettering themselves. Dougal Mulvey, Jason Smith, Adam Hunt and James Robertson enjoyed their development and their part in making this team such a successful one; just the one game was lost. An enjoyable and most successful season because the team approached each game with unity, a fine attitude and superb sporting demeanour. IIA XI AJW Whitehead, JW Greathead, SP Cohen, HRG Wood, JA Cameron, HG Cavill, LR Christensen, TO Coates, WG Houston, A Novaro, HNJ Roberts, NR Skipper The lias, under the outstanding captaincy of Angus Whitehead, rapidly improved throughout the first half of the season, participating in many memorable games. Some were won and some lost, but all were played with great enthusiasm and intensity. The ream is blessed with talented bowlers, from the express bowlers of Harry Sullivan, Will Houston, Angus Whitehead, James Cameron, Andrew Novaro and Luke Christensen to the delicate spin of Hugh Cavill, Tim Coates and James Greathead. The team won many games with some sensational fielding exploits with Nick Skipper, Phil Coates and Henry Roberts most prominent. A number of all-rounders helped create a solid, balanced team in which Henry Roberts, Hugh Cav-ill and Sam Cohen continually proved their value. The lias produced many impressive scores with the bat, with major contributors being Angus Whitehead, Henry Woods, Hugh Cavill, James Greathead and Nick Skipper. However, many exciting games were won by our wagging tail of James Cameron, Andrew Novara and Will Houston. Shore can expect many great things from the team members of the lias of 1999 given additional years to develop their skills and understanding of the game of cricket. II B XI CO Morbey, AJ Tilbury, JL Harmon, WL Rees, MR King, ZC Muysken, AJ Maslen, A Novara, JD Lister, AA Stanisrreet, TS Mare, JD Goswell (C), GF Fennel The 11 B team struggled to win many of their games but enjoyed the season. 261

262 Some class bowlers developed their skills, including fast bowlers, Chris Moreby, Jason Harmon and Will Rees, the accurate bowlers of Alex Tilbury and Mitchell King, and Tom Mare with his spmners. The ream produced many fine innings with Anthony Maslen, Andrew Novara excelling and Zac Muysken, Josh Lister and Angus Stanistreet making solid contributions. Some quality all-rounders, especially George Fennel and Tom Mare, added to the ream 1 s performances. James Goswell proved an inspiradonal captain, constandy giving encouragement from behind the stumps. Well done on a fine season. IIC XI MFF Daniell, KD Attard, ME Cowper,SA Davidson, SE Fox, JL Harmon, JW Hart, NF Howell, JM Kizny-Gordon, JD Lister, C Provan, JR Riches, J Richards, ER Shields, CP Thompson, JH Wood The l!cs had a very enjoyable season. We may not have won every match, but the boys 1 commitment and enthusiasm led to many exciting games. Matt Daniell proved to be an excellent captain and his on field organisation and enthusiasm were outstanding. James Riches led the fielding with his often spectacular catches and everyone showed great improvement in all aspects of their game as the season progressed. We are all looking forward to the rest of the season to further our skill development. A special thank you is extended to all the parents for their enthusiastic support. loa XI BWB Austin, SJ Wubben, AJ Nunn, JP Nunn, GH Whitehead, OW Osborne, HF Attard, HJO Allerton (C), AE Braude, OW Loveday, JG Robinson, AS Doecke The loas began their cricket careers at Shore with much enthusiasm and commitment, if _not success on the scoreboard. The~ team was fairly inexperienced at the start of the season, but the skills of all boys improved remarkably over the course of the first term. Hamish Allerton and Barnaby Austin provided some mature leadership in batting and bowling, while Simon Wubben's fast bowling had many an opening pair on the back foot. Gordon Whitehead was superb behind the stumps and combined aggression and skill in his batting and bowling. Alex Braude, Oliver Loveday and James Robinson provided elegant examples of good batting technique, while the Nunn brothers, Jack and Alex, were lightning fast in the field. Duncan Osborne, Allister Doecke and Hugh Attard showed great promise in batting and Duncan's bowling was especially valued late in the innings. The team played valiantly against some strong oppositions in Term I, and will only improve with further practice in the second half of the season. lob XI JD Morris (C), RE Davis, PJ Coates, JR Bayley, EWO Cross, TS Smith, PR Cook, JD Fleiter, AM Wheen, L Opacic, JP Rogan, BR Dobb 262

263 An enthusiasric lob ream played wirh superb attimde and commitment in the firsr half of the season. Though a few games were cancelled, the boys approached each game with vigour and determination, culminating tn an exciting win against St Aloysius. Jeremy Morris led the team with maturity and was ably supported by the older boys, Sander Wheen, Lukas Opacic and Edward Cross. James Fleiter, Phillip Coates and Brendan Oobb showed great improvement in batting, while James Bayley and Jonathon Rogan are developing sound bowling technique. Trent Smith and Richard Cook have progressed well in their first season and are demonstrating growing skills in all facets of the game. Ryan Davis receives the most improved player award, for his raw bowling pace and exciting bat<ing style. A special thanks goes across the world to Mr Robbie Turner who coached the team with enthusiasm and a fair degree of patience. IOC XI WHM Brown (C), MB Booyer-Rybak, HL Chiew, PS Comino, AR de Crespigny, RW Elstone, MWC Fairbairn, SO Gibson, WTG Hawker, SM Lloyd, LS Martin, OJ Minnet<, AR Screnci, JGN Shaw, T Vatalidis For mosr of the boys in the IOC team, this was their first season of cricket. All the boys tried very hard and as the season progressed, their skills improved greatly. The boys had a very positive anirude and were always enthusiastic. Congratulations to William Brown who was an excellent captain, leading by example. Our thanks to the many parents who helped and supported the boys throughout the season. U I I Cricket Squad CP Thompson, SE Fox, JG Shaw, PC Oickin, JW Hart, S Crane, AS Joseph, C Provan, JM Kizny-Gordon, BR Orrell With the remnant of the under 10 and 11 cricketers, the squad was a permanently rotating group of boys who developed their fitness, ball skills and throwing precision each week. The boys were always enthusiastic ro meet at Balmoral Beach, where, due ro the location, even the most rigorous activities were deemed to be enjoyable. The standard and attitude of the boys improved markedly over the season, with some pleasing cricket scores when boys were promoted. Thanks must go to the parents of the boys, who supported with their own enthusiasm and even participation in some of our activities! First XV RUGBY IG Stewart (C), JM Anderson, TE Blanch, HL Bushell, NA Connor, ST Fischer-Gray, RH Geddes, AA L 'Green, RM McGowan, RA Osborne, AJ Shields, HJ Stackpool, AI Stewart, JL Thompson, TO Uebergang There are two ways that people can judge success. Firstly by the score and secondly through attitude, and on both of these counts the Shore Prep First XV 263

264 completed an outstanding season. At all training sessions each player was willing to learn and trained well, running with determination and zeal. They were a courageous and entertaining team, always willing to run the ball and tackle anything that moved. The front row of James Anderson, Adam L 'Green, and Alistair Stewart gave a fine and solid platform for the rest of the serum. Adam took many tight heads whilst James became an accurate line-out thrower. Alistair did an enormous amount of 'clearing out' and scored a superb 25m try against St Patricks. Tom Uebergang and James Thompson were our supportive and running 2nd rowers. James, through his determination, scored several hard-earned tries off set moves whilst Tom did a lot of the lead-up work with his hard driving and line out jumping. The backrow of Alex Shields, Hugh Stackpool and lain Stewart were a very exciting, fit and destructive trio. Their forte was tackling and what a great job they did. Tom Blanch played three roles; as haltback where accurate and flat passing allowed Hayden time to set up his outside backs, as a most successful line out jumper and as a general who tackled with an enormous amount of courage. Hayden Bushell was an inspirational fly half who cleverly constructed many anacking moves and became one of the best tacklers seen to date. He is indeed destined for higher things. Rowan Geddes and Richard Osborne were elusive runners and strong tacklers and it is to their credit that Robin McGowan and Nathan Connor saw so much ball. Robin and Nathan proved to be quality finishers who delighted in ensuring that their opposites never ran around them. Sinclair Fischer..: Gray eagerly accepted any kicks to him, judiciously deciding whether to run or. kick a return ball to the delight of the forwards.. lain Stewart as captain, led by example and had the support of his talented team. He is a modest and exciting player who was respected by all. It has been a rewarding and brilliant season from a team of personable, sporting and passionate boys. Second XV STM Cooper, AW Draffin, KE Karsten, JA Ledgerwood, ST Taylor, PJG Benson, AR Davis, MJG Long, RA Morris, TJ Page, TCG Smith, AC Vowell, AR Frazer, I] Hume, CO Nordfeldt, JS Reinhardt, TJ Smith The Prep Seconds completed a most impressive season with wins over every team in the competition including an outstanding 12-0 victory over a very strong Knox team and a memorable lastgame demolition of Kings. Michael Karsten proved an outstanding captain leading the team with enthusiasm, passion and positive encouragement. The ream was well served in the forwards with Tom Cooper, Angus Vowell and Max Long providing impressive mobility and Michael Karsten, Richard Morris, Charlie Nordfeldr and Sam Taylor providing the power in serums, rucks and mauls. The team was very lucky to enjoy the 264

265 technical skills of Ian Hume, who was unlucky not to be in the Firsts. The lineouts were an absolute feature with the marvellous jumping skills of Max Long, Tom Cooper and Angus Vowell and the exceptional lifting skills of Ian H ume and Sam Taylor. The backs were polished and capable of being self-drilled, creating many successful moves themselves. Tyson Smith was one of the most improved players feeding clean, quick ball from the forwards and driving hard in tackles of loose forwards. Andrew Davis controlled many games with excellent options, featuring crisp passes, blind side runs and deep clever kicks. The midfield combination of Will Martin and Tim Smith defended superbly and constanrly fed the wingers quality ball leading to an abundance of tries. The wingers were probably the highlight of the team performances with some outstanding running and hard tackling. Well done Adam Frazer, James Ledgerwood and Patrick Benson. Alex Draffin proved a most reliable fullback, learning the trade well with tremendous positioning, attacking and defensive skills. The hard running pair of Joshua Reinhardt and Tim Page was very welcome to the Seconds and added greatly to the team's performances every time they were required. Well done on a tremendous Rugby season where the team developed skills and played with great passion. Third XV AG Robinson, OHB Austin, HSG Bennett, M Bognar, AJ Burke, J Cameron-Strange, JM Crowe, TH Duff, CME Ellis, TV Guy, AG Hunt, JG Ledgerwood, MT Londish, SF McAskill, PWA Martin, W Martin, OJ Mulvey, TJG Page, JS Reinhardt, JG Robertson, JM Smith, WR Talbot, T Whyte What an excellent season the Thirds had. They may not have won every game but they played with enthusiasm and commitment and every week their skills and fitness improved. The serums were always the strong point. Adam Hunt was formidable and Alex Burke, Tommy Guy.and Michael Londish showed great development in their defence and their determination to win the ball. Andrew Robinson was awesome as hooker and Justin Cameron Strange, Phil Martin, Josh Reinhardt and Will Talbot all showed great speed and determination in defence. The tacklers of the team were Jamie Crowe, Henry Bennett, Tim Page, James Legerwood and Oscar Austin who never tired and were always there looking for the ball and stopping the match-winning rry. Will Talbot, Phil Martin and James Legerwood proved to be great kickers as well as speedy players. Our last line of defence, Dugal Mulvey, Tom Whyte, Jason Smith and Stuart McAskill, worked well together and their passing improved every week. Congratulations to all the boys who showed that when you work together great things can happen. A special thank you must go to Andrew Robinson for being such a helpful, thoughtful and strong captain and also to the parents for their enthusiasm and support.,..; 265

266 IIAXV LR Christensen, TO Coates, EDA Copeman, BL Costello, GF Fennel, JW Greathead, JD Goswell, WG Houston, Aj Maslen, CD Moreby, A Novara, WL Rees, J Richards, JR Riches, HNJ Roberts, JH Sullivan, GH Whitehead (C), HRI Wood The ll.as had an impressive season, not because of the number of matches won - although there were some notable wins, including defeating Waverley - but because of the way the ceam 1 s performance improved during the season. Initially the boys played very much as individuals but they developed, match by match, into a commicted pack playing some great Rugby. During the season they learnt the true meaning of the word TEAM - Together Everyone Achieves More. The front row of Jack Richards, Ben Costello and Angus Whitehead were impressive in all aspects of their game but particularly in the serums where they won a large number of tight-head feeds. Second-rowers, Anthony Maslen, James Goswell and later on in the season Andrew Novara, helped provide a strong platform for the front row forwards and good forward momentum in the rucks and mauls. Breakaways George Fennel, Chris More by and later on in the season, James Riches, put excellent pressure on the opposition forwards and inside backs and were always looking to secure the ball for the Shore pack. Harry Sullivan played a key role as lock, demonstrating impressive skills when running with the ball. James Greathead did an excellent job as halfback, effectively linking the forwards and backs and showing great mid-field defence, never missing a tackle. Ed Copeman was also fearless in his tackles and worked hard to provide good ball for the centres, Henry Roberts and Luke Christensen. Henry ran the ball with great determination at inside centre and was a solid defender with Luke at outside centre providing great service for the wingers. The S~ore team always looked dangerous when wingers Henry Wood and Will Houston had possession, both doing some impressive running up the field, covering more than half the pitch on a number of occasions. Tim Coates, the team's fullback, had a great kick which frequently got the team out of some tight spots. Thanks must go to Angus Whitehead for doing a great job as Captain, to Roger Fitzhardinge for his assistance with coaching and to all the parents for their encouragement on the sidelines. lib XV JH Wood, PRJ Madden, AS Joseph, HG Cavill (C), SA Davidson, A Novara, AP Dobb, AA Stanistreet, AJ Tilbury, CD Morbey, ZC Muysken, JN Gamer, TO Coates, WL Rees, JA Cameton, JL Harmon The 11 Bs had a wonderful season. Their play was characterised by passion, especially in defence. With a high turnover of team members due to sickness and promotion for improvement in skills, we were lucky to maintain a core of solid players. Two highlights of the season: Firstly, 266

267 Peter Madden and Andrew Joseph, our two props, scored three runaway tries berween them against Kings in the final game of the season. Secondly, against Trinity, Shore was down 17-5 at half time and came back to S<eamroll a victory. Front rowers, Wood, Madden and Joseph, were magnificent, setting a firm foundation for our scrummaging and drive in loose play. The back row, Dobb, Stanistreet and Novara, literally flew around the paddock, securing ball at the breakdown and leading the forwards by example. The second row of Davidson and Cavill was the engine room, driving the ream forward at every opportunity. Alex Tilbury directed the team from the base of the serum, urging the forwards and giving the backs their chance to shine. Chris Morbey showed a great pair of hands and a tight kicking game from five-eight, feedng the outside backs plenry of ball. The centre pairing of M uysken and Garner was devastating in defence, intimidating their opposite numbers from the word go with their powerful tackling. James Garner also produced some swashbuckling runs through heavy traffic in the midfield. The line was rendered secure by the efforts of Rees, Cameron and Harmon whose tackling was exemplary and whose attack was like lightning. Both wingers scored some beautiful sidelinehugging tries, and Will Rees' runs from penalty moves were awe-inspiring. The height of the season was the final game against Kings, where everything just clicked, and the II Bs played as a team and all the moves and combinations were just pretty to watch. IIC XV CD Amos, KD Attard, JRS Bain, TS Chambers, S Crane, MPF Daniell, PG Dickin CB J Ellis, JW Hart, MR King, JD Lister, TS Mare, JWF McAskill, BR Orrell, C Provan (C) ER Shields, NR Skipper, CC Taylor The tics had an extremely successful Rugby season this year. This is largely due to their energy and enthusiasm for the game and to their ability to work as a team. They began the season with an inexperienced forward pack who improved our of sight to become a force to be reckoned with. The props, Ken Attard, and Theo Chambers, along with the hookers, Tom Mare and Josh Lister, were solid in defence and dangerous on the attack. They were well supported by the second row of Peter Oickin, Cameron Amos and Chris Ellis. With these boys, Shore was able to push St Pats off the ball, even against the feed in the serum. The breakaways, Nick Skipper and Elliot Shields, made many fine dashes for the line, but we could not have done without the fine leadership of Calum Provan who displayed outstanding skills and sportsmanship to be the team's top scorer this season. The tic backs were all strong runners who came together so impressively as a team in the last few games that it was a pity to see the season end. James McAskill and Matthew Daniell combined well. They set up the backs and got the ball out wide, quickly to allow the centres, Scott Crane and James Hart, to make strong runs up the field. The wingers, Justin Bain, Cameron Taylor and Ben Orrell, used their speed to make some fierce breaks down the 267

268 line. Mitchell King as fullback was a great success as the last line of defence and kicker, Matthew Daniell, snuck the ball well to provide the team with valuable extra points.. The 11Cs were a credit to the School. They played with spirit and determination and had an outstanding season which was only enhanced by their sportsmanship both on and off the field. lid XV JG Shaw, WA Kitching, HD Sturrock, CP Thompson, ME Cowper, MP Gillings, EY Yau, DO Smith, OW Fog!, JM Kizny Gordon, TR Cherry, PW O'Neil, SG Wirth, NF Howell (C), SE Fox, HW Sutherland The 11 D Rugby team had an excellent season with many boys playing the game for the first time. The team focused on the basics of ball handling and tackling throughout the season, which soon began to pay dividends. All the boys played with enthusiasm and good attitude and are w be commended on their approach to the game. Nick Howell led the team ably, leading from the front with excellent running and support play. Hamish Sutherland and Charlie Thompson developed strongly and will make fine Rugby forwards in the seasons to come. James Shaw, Michael Cowper and Henry Sturrock provided the front row muscle and developed bustling running games as the season wore on. David Fog!, Erwin Yau, Simon Fox and Will Kitching played ably as lose forwards and in the backs, while Damien Smith, Peter O'Neil and Joel Kizny Gordon grew more confident running with the ball from the inside backs. Tristan Cherry, Matt Gillings and Sam Wirth were indispensable in the backs and forwards with their straight running and bone-crunching defence. As with any team at this level, the 11 Ds played a great vanety of oppositions of differing ability, resulting in some lop-sided games (both wins and losses). The highlights of the season were two hard-fought wins against Barker and St. Aloysius, and some close tussles with a strong Knox team. Well done to all boys for a great season. loa XV GH Whitehead (C), HJD Allerton (VC), BWB Austin, RE Davis, AS Doecke, BR Dobb, AJ Nunn, OW Osborne, SRJ Rains, JG Robinson, TS Smith, AL Stannard, SJ Wubben The boys trained with great commitment throughout Terms II and Ill. While individual skills improved, the team skills improved dramatically_ The boys' understanding of rucks, mauls and serums developed with the season and their ability to turnover the ball and maintain possession was very pleasing. The 1 OAs were always a well-mannered group who listened carefully to their coach and always gave 100% at training. Enthusiasm, commitment and persistence were the traits of this team. The forwards developed tremendously as the season progressed. They often won tight-head serums, pushed larger packs off the ball and learnt the value of ball retention in the rucks and mauls. The backs tackled very well and always applied pressure to their 268

269 opposition. As they gained confidence and passed more fluent!y, large gaps appeared in the oppositions' backlines. Gordon Whitehead led the team by example and with the assistance of Hamish Allerton provided excellent leadership to the team. The loas of 1999 can be well pleased with their efforts. The skills learnt and the teamwork, which was developed throughout the season, will be a firm platform for the enjoyable years of Rugby ahead. lob XV HF Attard, MB Booyar-Rybak, AE Braude, HL Chiew, PJ Coates, PS Camino, EW Cross, OW Loveday, ]0 Morris, L Opacic, JP N uno (C), JP Rogan, A L Stannard, T Vatalidis The lob Rugby team enjoyed a very emenaining and successful season. The excellent results reflected a hardworking attiwde, suong teamwork and a capacity to put into practice what had been learnt in training. For many of the boys, the 1999 season was their first of Rugby. Week by week the team continued to improve as rhey honed their skills. The most distinguishing features of their game were their ability to defend against any opposition and their free-flowing and unpredictable running with the ball. The boys can be very proud of their efforts and will no doubt develop further and enjoy Rugby in the future. IOC XV JR Bayley, RP Cook, AR de Crespigny, RW Elsone, MW Fairbairn, JD Fleiter, SO Gibson, WT Hawker, SM Lloyd, LS Martin, OJ Minnett, AR Screnci, AM Wheen The locs made considerable progress over the Rugby season. Most of the boys had never played before and started hesitantly. Under the encouraging wings of their coach, Mr Jim Mathers, tbe boy.s gradually developed the confidence to run hard and straight with the ball and to tackle around the legs. The results reflected a significant improvement and most matches were tightly contested. Every boy was always enthusiastic in training and eager to be involved in each match. From the sideline it has been very pleasing to watch them develop their skills that will hopefully be built upon over the many seasons ahead.

Their behaviour has been enthusiastic and encouraging and their positive responses have helped get the best from their team-mates. Many thanks to all the parents for their support and especially to Mrs Morris for her invaluable coaching and rime spent helping both teams. SWIMMING chilly water.

272 CAMP T'' o aspects that boys will recall from their Grade 6 camp tu the Colo River were the rain and che tremendous spiri1 clearly t;vident in the year group. Roys Jidn't let the ra in dampen their spirits, but enjoyed all the organised activities with enthusiasm and energy. The staff ar the campsite had great expertise which they were able to s hare with the boys, and their efforts made the three days nor only enjoyable, but informative as well. Some of the highlights included canoeing on the river, Storie:; around rhe campfire, the 'wombat hole', obsracle course, spotto, high ropes, flying fox, rhe bushwalk, puddles in tents. wet clothes and shoes, and lots of laughter. The camps are an impormnr parr of the teuching program in the Preparatory School, pro\'iding the boys with opportunities to bond with rheir peers and challenge themselves in activities they would not normally encounter. After their experiences at the Colo River, all Grade 6 boys are looking forward with anticipation co the end of year camp. EXCURSION The Year 6 C<lnberra excursion wa clearly a highlight of the year. Homestays with Canberm Grammar families provided some boys with unforgetrablc experiences. Some boys' home-stays were in embassies. whilst others smyed with famous sports people. Excursions were undertaken co various loc:nions around Canberra such as the War ~ l emorial, Parliament House and Questicon. The boys especially enjoyed the hands-on science experiences at Questicon and rhe extensive tour of Parliament House, which helped bring to life the boys' government ~tudics in r Iuman Society and irs Environment. The boys interacted well with the boys and staff from Canberra Grammar in culrural and sporting evenrs, which included chess, debating, trivia quiz, soccer, bush w:jiking and music, as well as the traditional R11gby fixture. The First XV had a hard fought win in the Rugby, bur all rhe boys from 6th Grade had an enriching and enjoyable rime in our nation's capiral.

273 BOARDING HOUSES BARRY HOUSE The penultimate year of the second millennium was another outstanding year in Barry House. 'T'hirty-six fine young men gathered in January and throughout the next 11 months gelled into a group that provided Barry House archives with many lasting memories. Two new Assistant Housemasrers, Mr Carl Jenkins and Mr Mike Bayliss, commenced their career in the House and provided firm yet.fair leadership and guidance. Mrs Eileen Hayes was again to provide the TLC for the boys and ensure that their laundry needs were fulfilled and maintain the tidiness of the House. Many thanks to these people for their efforts. Mr and Mrs Ticehurst continue to provide selfless support for the boys. Both are on call night and day, and all boys appreciate their work, much of which goes unnoticed. It is the boys who make the House unique and this year Barry House were blessed with a very fine group. From the tallest Form VI boy, Peter Hurrell, to the youngest Form I boy, Toby Moss, all contribute to the family atmosphere of Barry House. The House was lead by Jason Croll, a very caring leader who often helped with duties instead of just telling others to do this or that. He was ably supported by Chas Nott and in combination these two were largely responsible for the smooth year. Peter Hurrell and Elton Chan were the other House Prefects who were supportive and friendly. All boys are wished. the best of luck in the HSC examinations. Form V was waidng in the wings to take over in the new millennium. A larger group, buoyed by the addition of Martin Richards, Will Rogers and Robbie Tall, Form V contain many high fliers. In sport, in the academic sphere 1 in cultural aspects (i.e. The Weekly Record) and in drama, this Form had many representatives. Characters thrive in Form V; Ben Hutchings provides photographic record of our time; Henry Playfair enthralls us with stories of operations and Aussie Rules; Will Rogers provides the fantasy; Robbie Tall and Martin Richards are just laid back; Ed Sanderson has all the moves; Jordan Seeto proved how accurate he is behind a rifle; Chris Tyrrell and Charles Ellis are to lead us next year and will be great; and Steve Sevier has been appointed to be Senior Prefect in an outstanding reward for a remarkable character. VVe all wish him the best in his role. The Form IV provided useful assistance and was able to mature throughout the year. A mixture of country: Henry Burridge, David Ellis, 273

274 Andiew Vincent, city: Luke Carri.eron-. Clarke, Hugh Eriksson, Will Frew and Jordan Smith and international: Victor Liu and Wilson Long, rhe group has grown closer rogerher and hopefully will continue this trend as they move towards being rhe leaders m The menwring done by Hugh Eriksson, David Ellis and Henry Burridge has provided help for their mentees and given these boys added confidence. The Form III was rocked by rhe rerrible injury ro Nick Studdy. Nick spent the last term recovering in Tamworth and ou r prayers and thoughts were with him in his time of need. Stuart Dixon, Adam Landis and Nick. Mace have been lonely without their friend and all await Nick 1 s return. The Form II boys were acrively involved when showing the form 1 boys the ropes. A lively group ye't supp,orrive of each mher, rhey would help a boy overcome homesickness by talking together at night in a large circle. ]ames Brown improved his academic standing and was an active sportsman. ]arret Chan developed his Rugby skills, in parricular his rackling. Lincoln Smirh is rhe computer genius and was a very popular member of the group. James Stanistreet continues to be a strong sportsman and is always rhere w provide a laugh. Tim Studdy is a very popular member of rhe dorm who, with his combination of tales of fun and friendly personaliry, is one of many well respecred boys in rhe House. Our new boys, the Form I, are at the end of the!r first year in the House, and only five to go. Homesickness and personality disputes are inevitable, but by resolving problems such as these the boys have become a suong group. John Considine is very talented when it comes to fishing and his tales of the one that got away entertained us all. TOby Moss was a keen participator in all sports and showed how study can bring in good results with a fine academic achievement. Edward Richards is a characrer who is well liked by all boys. He has a strong sense of fun and threw himself into many house activities. Jack Sevi~r joined Ed in running the 1 shop 1 and learned about management and money lending. Barry House looks forward to the new millennium with great anticipation. The Senior Prefect, the second in three years from Barry House, a new vertical house system and the Olympic Games are just some of rhe highlights to look forward ro. All the boys will return with anticipation. We trust all boys have a great Christmas and see you in the year

277 HODGES HOUSE 1999 has been a most successful year for all the members of Hodges House. We have been led selflessly by our House Captain, Spen lvey, Vice Captain, Tom Quih:er, and House Prefects, Anthony Meurer, Will Pearce, Jamie Munro, Janzen Tai and Fred Tse. Several new faces have appeared throughout the year. Mr Pola has entered the boarding house to replace Mr Weiss as Assistant Housemaster, and he has a great affinity with all the boys who in mrn have responded with friendship and respecc. A number of boys also joined the house. In Form VI we welcomed Ben Larsen, in Form V came Ben Crowe, Rob Flaye, Nick Larkworthy, Hong Ching Lee, Simon Ealson and Alex Underwood. Fourth formers who entered were John Broadfoot, Tim Hearl, Will Cape and Chris Jackson and in Form I came Michael Begg, James Bunting, Matthew Harris, Simon McKendry and Will Townsend. This year the boys of Hodges House have undertaken a great deal of extracurr.icular activity, which has been of great benefit to all. Who could forget cheering one of our own across the line at the Head of the River, when Tim Meurer's crew, the First IV, was victorious? Many others excelled at summer spores, with Rob Flaye in the First basketball team and Spen lvey captaining the Second basketball in a most successful season. Simon Orbell kept wicket for the First XI cricket and Tom Quilter was in the Second XI. Down at Long Reef, Jamie Munro and Ant Meurer helped keep beachgoers safe as lifesavers with the Shore patrol, and gained their colours in the meantime. In the athletics field, Tim Dreverman ran long distance at the GPS carnival and went on to come 12th in the NSW Cross Country Championships, while Simon Gardner ran shorter distances at the GPS Carnival and the Srawell Gift in Victoria. In junior levels, Tom Bunting, Alex Underwood and Tim Dreverman rowed in the Third Junior VIII, which was victorious in all bur one race. Doug MacPhillamy and Justin Fitzherben Smith played cricket in the!6as, and Hugh Burton-Taylor was in the!6bs. Younger boys have participated well in school activities. James Holliday Smith went to New Zealand with the school choir tour, Simon McKendry played in the 13As cricket team, and Russel Copeman and Simon Ronald rowed well in the quads. Ben Crowe had a very successful winter season this year. He was chosen in the First XV Rugby team, despite being m the 16s age group, and was subsequently named Vice Captain of the team, which was a great honour. It was pleasing to see some members of our house in the school 1 s production of The Wizard of Oz. Tom Bunting brought the character of the scarecrow to life, and Adam Browne, Nick Larkworthy and Alex U ndcrwood played supporting roles. Tim Dreverman took on the mammoth task of sound management, which he undertook very well. Nick Larkworthy and Adam Browne went on to perform in the Fifth Form production of That Eye the Sky. This year has been great fun for all in Hodges House and the achievements mentioned above prove that the opportunities offered have been fully utilised. To everyone, a happy and 277

278 relaxing holiday and we look forward to seeing each other again next year. TO Form VI we wish you rhe besr of luck in fmure life. ROBSON HOUSE The year has proven to be a very happy and successful one in Robson House. Throughout the year the boarders have been up bright and early each morning thanks to the construction of our next door neighbour, the new Con1puter, Library and Baskerball complex. The outsranding leadership of rhe House in 1999 has contributed greatly to the atmosphere and performance of d1e boarders in Robson House. Henry Parry Okeden and Angus Sippe provided wonderful role models for the remainder of the House in their duties as Captain and Vice Caprain. They were very well assisred by Thea Souris, Henry Duddy, Ben Isaac, Christo Ferguson, Alex Mullen and Wesley Wong. The attirude of the House Prefects was consistent throughout the year toward their academic work and their participation in the activities of the School. The House Prefects clearly demonstrated to the other boys how much a boarder can gain from being a student at Shore. Henry Parry-Okeden was Caprain of rhe Shore Shooring ream and gained GPS honours at the conclusion of the season. On rap of playing basketball and Rugby, Henry was able to push his way up the academic order to a creditable 15th place. He won the JW Burn's Prize for Boarders and a General Activity on Speech Day. Angus Sippe who was a member of the successful Firsr VIII in 1999 was also an outstanding scholar. He caprained the Fourth XV throughout their undefeated season. Henry Duddy was a member of the First Shooting team and Christo Ferguson was Captain of First XI and a member of the Second XV Ben Isaac and Alex Mullen established themselves as leaders in Surf Life Saving and Thea Souris had a fine season in the front row of the Second XV. The Robson Form V has already made a great impression on both the House and rhe School in their penultimate year. They represent all facers of the school program and have placed themselves in a good position to continue the present solid leadership of the House in Sam Campbell was a GUO in the Cadet Corps and rowed in the First VIII until illness prevented him rowing at the GPS Regatta. Mike Carroll played in the First XI and Third XV and was awarded The Hunt Foundation Scholarship for Art. James Kellett had a fanrasric season in the 16Bs Rugby, coached by the Assistant Housemaster of Robson House, Mr Fitzgerald, and Tim Low was a very reliable fly half in rhe Third XV.

281 SCHOOL HOUSE Once again School I louse has had another grear year. Throughout che year academically, m sporrs, in extracurricular activities and in the boarding community m gene ral we were surrounded by s uccess. The House Captain, Steve Rabe, and Vice House Captain. Tom Simpson, must be congrarulared for rhe huge contributions they h:we put in throughom the year resulting in the successful, and smooch, running of the House. We welcomed Mr Hennessey ar the s care of the year and che n Mr Bohlsen ar the beginning of Term 11. Both firced in excremcl) well inro the House and its routines. Both were of great assistance along with the well-experienced ~ l r ~ Iiller who supported the boys in a wide range of ways, academically and on the sporting field. S porting achievements were again very prominent within the ranks of School House. rfem1 1 held the highlight with the winning of six our of six races in the GPS Head of che River. Chris Gowing and james Wilmott were in the impressive undefeated Third IV. Sam llc nl cy again coxcd the successful Second Vlll whilst Big johnny Gowing provided much of the VliJs' power.

Tim Marcin. Elliot Tourlc, Ben Hewlett, and C lift Stanley all e njoyed fine seasons whilst James Lew and Bill Srcarn competed ar the GPS Athletics carnival. Lew showed outstanding form "vich a third placing i.n both rhc 400m and 800m events. T he Rugby season saw mixed successes for School House, with a very s crong representation in the junior years and an expanse of commirme nc in the lower open grades. A strong all season performance by James Lew in the Firsrs brought much pride ro the House and, along with.jono Me rriman in rhe Thirds, should make exceptional appearances nex.r year. Form Vl, while nor as competitive in Rugby as in previous years. still shone with excellence in rhc lower grades.

283 the back line resulting in many a uy. 'T'he Sixth XV, otherwise known as the School House XV, was always entertaining to watch. Luke Almond proved to be that all round player the Sixths needed this year. He was devastating in attack with his trademark step and ruthless in defence. Tim Marrin in the from row often struck fear in his opposition with his hard scrummaging and Nick Hosking and Oliver Statham were outstanding in the backrow. Ben Noble held the backline together with his inspiring and courageous plays with ball in hand. Jack Pratten and Andrew Macdonald played 1n the Seventh XV and showed commitment in reserving for the Sixths' games. While the seniors took a social outlook to their Rugby, performances our junior members proved quire the opposite. Elliot 'laurie had another solid season in the 16As. He successfully kicked the team to a number of very satisfying victories, notably his penalty kick on the final whistle to win the Riverview match. Chris Gowing also performed well out on the wing, running in numerous tries in the corner. Oscar Oberg, Matthew 'lasker and Tom Howell were all members of the forward packs of the top teams in the 1 Ss age group. Mathew Hall and Cliff Stanley topped off a great season, Mathew being in the 14As and Cliff in the Bs. The 13s age group was represented with a big effort by Winston Stearn in the As. Outside the sporting arena School House performed exceptionally well. The 1999 school musical of The Wizard of Oz, saw the talents of two School House boys put on display. Charlie Thompson was a cheeky little munch kin while Tim Marrin strutted his stuff in a series of roles from a snowman to a zombie, and Lord of Emerald City. The play went very well and both boys gained great experience. Throughout the year Colin Wong performed 111 many School concerts. His solo efforts on the piano and the viola were a joy to watch. Colin is to be congratulated on winning the piano section of the School's Music Awards. In academia, School House did very well. The Prep boys performed impressively with Charlie Thompson gaining a Credit Certificate in English. In Form I Chris Allison gained Credits in English and Science competitions and Alex Sutherland followed in his footsteps with a High Distinction for his Geography. Andrew Wilmott showed his artistic talent when his pottery was displayed at the School's Art Exhibition. In Form II Matt Kennett achieved not only a Distinction in Geography but also a Credit in Science. Hamish Noble kept up the Form II art tradition and had his pottery on display. Anthony Brown and Winston Stearn both performed well in Science picking up a Credit and Distinction respectively. Winston also performed in the concert band at the school's lloth birthday celebrations. In Form III Colin Wong, along with his excellent music fears, achieved a High Distinction in Marhs. Matt Tasker was the other outstanding Third Former with his artistic expressions on display. The Fourth Formers had some of the School's leading cadet men with Ben Hewlett topping the junior promotions camp in Cadets and receiving a Distinction for his efforts on the Senior course. This promoted him to the rank of sergeant, the only!vth Form sergeant in the school. George Henderson also received a Distinction on the promotions course 283

284 and has contributed greatly to the successes of the cadets this year. Brendan Houng-Lee was the leading AIRTC cadet in his year. Brendan also received a Distinction in Science. Form V clocked up the head ushers for rhe school with Ben Noble leading with Chris Gowing, Chris Hosking and Tim Marrin as his assistant head ushers. Ben also received First in the year for his O&T project (a clock) while Chris Hosking was awarded a Headmasters Award for his fine (Xerox) effort in his SGP. Tim Martin also received a Headmasters Award for Geography and was one of the finest debaters in the School. He not only obtained a Credit in Science but also gave a fine performance in one of the schools active 1 E-Teams 1, who helped Wesrpac. Jack Prarren was in another E-Team that went to Zurich and Bill Stearn also joined an E-Team who ventured out to Cee Data. James Lew shone through for the School House contingent, gaining a second in the Annual Boarding Golden Boors Award. James also received a Divinity Prize and, for his excellent achievemenrs in sport, the Old Boys Outstanding Sportsman Award. Alistair Spring gained the rank of CUO in cadets and James Wilmott a Staff Sergeant. The 1 blow ins 1 of Form V, Jarred French and Andrew Macdonald, showed the School House spirit with Jarred achieving all medallions in his season of SLS. Andrew was the main man in the up-keep of the Northbridge facilities. FonT1 VI were the motivators for School House and they did this not only with their leadership but also with the example they set in the Day School. Stephen Rabe, House Captain, was part of the Titration Team that won the Sydney competition in the National Titration Competition. Steve was a full Prefect for the School and earned his Advance Resuscitation Certificate in SLS. Steve's main help in the House came from his Vice Captain, Tom Simpson who was also a Sub-Prefect in the Day School. The School House Sixth Formers led the patron realm with Luke Almond, Sam Henley, Johnny Gowing and Nick Hosking all helping to make the final year of Patron duties at Shore a good one.

287 PRESIDENT'S REPORT It is my pleasure to report to you to respect of the activities of the Shore Old Boys Union over the last 12 months. The focus of the OBU 1 s activities has been co further consolidate those new initiatives and activities arising out of the strategic planning exercise undertaken in This has been done through the efforts of a very enthusiastic and dedicated Committee, supported by subcommittees formed to implemem particular initiatives. The key activity areas have been: Membership; Careers Assistance; Events and Activities; Image and Awareness; Governance; and School and Community Links. MEMBERSHIP A particular focus of the OBU 1 s activities this year has been the implementation of scrategies to increase the number of boys joining as Life Members when they leave school. Many activities are geared towards lifting the OBU's profile and relevance in the eyes of the School community and current boys. A new brochure has been produced. This was distributed with the final term's fee statement sent our in Term III. The format of the final fee statement has also been revised in consultation with the Bursar's office. Suggestions have been made to Council concerning other ways of collecting the Life Membership fee and adding value to Life Membership of the OBU. The OBU is conscious that if a boy does not join on leaving, the likelihood of joining later in life is remote, while at the same time through the Alumni Office we seek to keep in touch with all Old Boys of the School, with the Year Reunions being a key activity which brings Old Boys together, facilitating the renewal of friendships. Michael Hawker has headed up the Membership Committee. During the year we welcomed 129 new Life Members, 5 Life Associate Members, one Honorary Life Member (Mrs Irene Allsop), and 17 Honorary Members (Lindsay Dobb, Ken Gilmour, John Gorham, Rod Morrison, Ian Powell, Bob Shirlaw, David Spurr, Stephen Bowers, Frank Cooke, Terry Devin, David Gwynn-Jones; john Meakins, Peter Miller, Rod Mounjed, Richard Stobo, Mark Ticehurst, David Whitehouse). Membership of the OBU is presently made up as follows: * Life Members * Life Associate Members * Honorary Life Members * Honorary Members At the Committee meeting held on 12 October 1998, Adrian Lane was elected a Fell ow of the Shore Old Boys Union. Adrian joins Bob Gowing, Bob Blanshard and Andrew Warden as Fellows. A Fellow is elected by the Committee and the guideline for election requires that person to have given outstanding service to either the School or the Old Boys Union. Adrian left Shore in 1957 and has made an outstanding contriburion to the School and Independent Schools generally over a long period in a number of capacities, more recently as an OBU representative on Council since 1986 and Chairman from 1989 to We were saddened to hear of the 287

288 death of Jika Travers just before Christmas. Jika had a distinguished career as a Shore Boy, Army man, Rhodes Scholar, sportsman, reacher, headmaster and family man. The OBU was always very honoured to count him as one of irs Fellows. We also extend to the family of Ted White, member of Council from 1945 to 1951, OBU President from 1959 to 1960; the OBU's sympathy on his passing in October. The School's Centenary Register published in 1989 was a result of his foresight and generosity. CAREERS ASSISTANCE Job Preparation and Interviews Resources from the OBU's Career's database have again been provided to assist the current Year 12 boys in their job preparation by conducting formal 'mock' interviews of the boys in the work place. Of concern is the level of inreresr of the boys themselves in raking advantage of this program, which arose our of the School's srrategic planning. E-Team The OBU has again assisted with theeteam project sponsored by the Quality Council of Australia to give workplace problem solving experience to boys in Year II. The interest of the boys in this project is such that it has not been possible to identify sufficient companies to give all those expressing interest the experience they are seeking. Careers Information Night A highlight of the year was the inaugural Careers Information Night in June held at the School in conjunction with the Shore Association. This was a huge logistical exerc1se considering the current building works in progress. More than 450 boys from Years 10, 11 and 12 attended the evening along with some 300 parents. A total of IS tertiary insriwrions 'attended along with 75 speakers from the School community who volunteered their rime to talk to the boys. The evening was organised by the School's Careers Adviser, Rod Moun jed, the Master of Studies, David \:Vhitehouse an_d a Committee headed up by Graham Oreverman, with outstanding support from Mrs Yvonne Kimber and Mrs l\1arilyn Eislers and other members of the Shore Association, members of the School Community, friends of the School and representatives form the various career interest areas, who generously made available their time to act as presenters on the evening. We continue w maintain and expand the database of Old Boys, parents and friends of the School who can help with the careers assistance program. This resource can also be accessed by members of the OBU for assistance or guidance in their career development. EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES Council Cocktail Party for Old Boys This is an occasion when Old Boys are the guests of Council. The function was held 1n the foyer of "the Smith Auditorium on Friday, 7 May. Tours of the School were conducted before the evening, which featured a display of archival material, as well as the trophies won by the crews from the Boatshed during the historic 1999 rowing season. 288

289 Annual Old Boys Memorial Chapel Service The service this year took place on Sunday, 9 May 1998 with Bishop Paul Barnett preaching. The service is held in conjunction with the Open Service commemorating the Foundation of the School. A particular focus of the service is the tribute co the service and sacrifice in times of war and peace of the many Old Boys who are no longer with us. Country, Interstate and Overseas Reunions These reunions form an important part of the activities during the year as they enable Old Boys not living in the Sydney metropolitan area to renew friendships and to keep in touch with the School. Attending these reuni ons, mostly in the company of the Headmaster, is one of the most enjoyable highlights of office as President. The OBU also sees the conveners of these groups as being an important link in the activities of the Committee. For the.most parr these reunions are held annually and involve Old Boys, their families, parents of current boys, and 1n some cases prospective parents. With School sporting teams, the choir and members of staff travelling interstate and overseas The OBU is most appreciative of the time and effort put into organising reunions by the various conveners and their committees and thanks the hosts who so generously open their homes and gardens on these occasions_ T'he reunions held during the year were: Region Hosts and/or.

290 Cricket The Quadrangular competition involving the boys, staff, parents and Old Boys took place in Term I~ however the traditional game against the OBU in Term IV was cancelled for this year due to organisational difficulties. It is hoped that this game can be revived. The format and timing for the game are being reviewed. Cross Country Peter Lotz is to be thanked again for organising two teams of Old Boys to run in the Trinity Road relay at Ewen Park, Hurstville on Saturday, 12 June. Shooting In spite of a last minute change of date, Hugh Bloore was able to muster a record number of Old Boys to shoot against the boys and their parents on Saturday, II September at Hornsby. Debating Evening James Young is to be thanked for organising the debating evening at the School on Thursday, 16 September, involving past and present debaters. This year the Old Boys debated against the undefeated Year 9 team negating 11 That Love is a Four-Letter Wordn and the Firsts negating 11 That it is Beuer to be Rich and Happy than Poor and Sad". It was a very entertaining and enjoyable celebration of Shore 1 S great tradition m debating excellence. Touch Football Day at Northbridge This year 20 reams competed in the fourth OBU Touch Football Competition run in association with the Shore Foundation on Saturday 18 September. The emphasis of the day continues to be that of enjoyment and interaction. For the first time a team of current boys won the competition and the trophy, with all four teams going through to the semi-finals being made up of current boys. Teams comprised Old Boys, current boys, parents and members of staff. We were blessed with a magnificent sunny day and the organisational skills of David Hawke and Hugh Watson, their committee and helpers on the day. The team captains who continue to support the day, by organising and assembling the teams are to be thanked. We are also grateful for rhe help given by the Shore Foundation under Ross Alexander who supported the OBU on the day, providing some of the prizes as well as lighr refreshments and a barbecue for the many players and spectators. Basketball Mike Sandilands and Mike Bayliss continue to convene this activity. A game is planned against the School in Term IV. Annual Sports Day and Dinner Charles Vowell is the convener for the Spons Day and Dinner to be held ar Killara Golf Club on Thursday, 4 November. David Bradley is convening 290

291 the golf, John Church the bowls and Howard Prott, the tennis. The OBU is inviting to the dinner as special guests, those Old Boys who have 'achieved national prominence during the year, as well as members of staff. Jim Dunstan, Old Boy, current parent, Commodore of Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron and Sydney-Hobart Yacht race competitor is proposing the toast to the School, with the Headmaster responding. As a result of the popularity of the format of last year's ~inner, the format for this year will be similar, with a barbecue, seating in general year groups and special concessions for students and members of staff. Numbers attending the dinner in 1998 were 135, with 102 for golf, 10 for tennis and 4 for bowls. IMAGE AND AWARENESS Shore Reports and Torch Bearer Shore Reports continues to be the OBU's main channel of communication with news concerning the achievements and activities of Old Boys, dates of Year Reunions and Group Reunions and other acuvmes involving Old Boys. An important initiative this year was the inclusion on the back of the address label space for news about Old Boys along with change of address details. As a result of the significant increase in news items, the School has very kindly made available an extra two pages (making four in total) for Old Boys News. Another important innovation is the inclusion of each Old Boy's register number on the address sheet with the inclusion of an 'X' where the Old Boy is known not to be a member of the OBU and the opportunity to apply for membership and so support the objectives of the OBU. The Torch Bearer is available only to those members of the OBU who have requested a copy. It is an end of year publication and includes from the OBU perspective, the minutes of the AGM and any Special Meetings held throughout the year, the Annual F-eport and a summary of Old Boy's news iteins. Year Leaders During the year a meeting of current year leaders was held to obtain feedback as to how the OBU could further develop this concept. The OBU is very conscious that one of its guiding principles is to help members to keep in touch and that one of the key vehicles for doing this is the year reunions held every five or ten years. The Annual Old Boys Day at Northbridge (this year on Saturday, 14 August for the game against St Josephs) and the seating of those attending the Annual Sports Day Dinner at the Killara Golf Club in general year groups can act as a focus to get the year together in between year reunions. Year Reunions This year there have been a record 10 Year Reunions. These reunions continue to be occasions where old friendships and experiences are renewed and relived. From the Alumni Office's perspective they always seem to come towards the end of the year. The OBU is very grateful to the conveners who have organised the reunions and made contact again with many Old Boys with whom 291

The reunions held or to be held during the year with their respective conveners are: GOVERNANCE Alumni Office In March Mrs Jennifer Locke took over from Mrs Irene Allsop as Alumni Secretary. Irene retired after more than 10 years as the Alumni Secretary and was elected an Honorary Life Member in recognition of her loyalty and support over such a long period. The Alumni Office is co-located with the Foundation Office within the School and is linked into the School's computer network. Ross Alexander, the Execurive Director of The Foundation has the general administrative oversight of both offices. Doug Lucas & Andrew Robson Mark Murdlison Danny le Moy, Sam ~alker & john Woods Rob Stanistreet james Davidson & Ridlard Churdl jeff McDougall, t'lid:: Swift, ian Cameron Peter Stevens Smith & Bill Wright Peter Richardson & Bruce $herington Brian Saint Bill Burgess We continue to be very appreciative of the continuing administrative support provided by School in ensuring that the hardware and software in the office are maintained and updated as required. This has ensured that the OBU, through the interest and enthusiasm of Jennifer Locke has been ~ble to efficiently service the needs of the OB U membership and to support the School. This year the office has assisted with the conduct of 10 Year Reunions and 5 Group Reunions throughout the year as well as assisting with mail-ours for the many other activities we undertake. This includes the inaugural Careers Information Night, maintaining and expanding the career's database, touch football day, debating evening, the inaugural GPS Gold Challenge, etc. Each Year Reunion provides the opportunity to update contact details and the post school details of all Old Boys in the Sch9las database. This is a time consuming exercise, but is providing the foundation for the fifth edition of the Register planned for 2004, a unique publication amongst the GPS schools. 292

293 The willing and co-operative support and interaction between the Alumni and Foundation Offices has helped to underpin the effectiveness of ihe OBU's many activities. David Cribb, the Treasurer of the Shore Foundation has attended Committee meetings, while Jamie Powell, as one of the five OBU Trustees on the Foundation has attended the Foundation Board meetings. Mrs Yvonne Kimber from the Shore Association and Steve Mayne from the Mitre Club have also attended Committee meetings. Committee Meetings and other Activities The OBU Committee has continued to operate through the year with five formal meettngs and ~xecutive and subcommittees meetings in between, some by telephone hookup. All Committee members have addresses, facilitating communication and the exchange of information. The OBU and the Committee have benefited from the ongoing interest of the Headmaster in the OBU's activities. His attendance and counsel at Committee meetings come within his very busy schedule. In March the Committee hosted a dinner to celebrate Bob Gowing's 90th. birthday and to express the OBU's appreciation for his continuing support of the OBU and the School in so many ways over more than 50 years. He and Bettina were the guests of the Committee and former Presidents, and their wives at Killara Golf Club. Bob was elected to the Committee in 1942, to Vice President in 1946 and to a Fellow in 1983, serving under 26 Presidents to date. There is still so much we can do on behalf of the OBU's membership and to assist the School. Fundamental to this is to have a strong, active and representative Committee, each member being prepared to take responsibility and put the time into the various initiatives they have volunteered to assist with. For the last two years, David Hawke has been a most efficient and diligent Honorary Secretary - the OB U is fortunate that he is prepared to continue in this position. It is important that the OBU continues to reassess what we are doing in a strategic sense, to ensure that that the OBU remains relevant to its membership and is sensitive to how we are perceived by other stak~holders within the School Community., A number of initiatives are s~ill being addressed by the Committee. These include Life Membership uptake by those leaving the School, the role of Year Leaders, Group Reunions (regional, interstate and overseas), the attendance at the Council Cocktail Party for Old Boys, the traditional OBU Cricket Match against the School, the Memorial Chapel Service for Old Boys, development of the OBU content in the School's web site, provision of career and employmem advice to Old Boys through the OBU's career's database; and the Leaver's Appendix in the TOrch Bearer as the first entry fat each Old Boy in the Register. Finance The OBU made a small surplus of $12,000 during the year. However, this does not reflect a commitment of$30,000 to the War Service Project or $50,000 to the Archives Centre from surplus funds. 293

294 In both cases the Committee has decided that any contribution should be made as part of a tax effective realignment of the OBU's investment portfolio, with the portfolio's management oversight to be the responsibility of the Combined Investment Committee of the School Council. David Brown continues in the role of Honorary Treasurer, with David Wills as Honorary Auditor. OBU Representation on Council As a result of the triennial election held during the year, the OBU's five elected members on Council were reelected. The OBU is very formnate to have as its five representatives: Andrew King, Jim Mathers, David Nock, Mick Swinburn and Steve Williams, all of whom are unstinting in their time and effort on behalf of the School, attending to the affairs of Council as well as attending OBU Committee meetings. The current Chairman of Council, Roger Corbett is an Old Boy and Synod representative on Council. He has attended Committee meedngs when time has allowed. This interaction has gready improved the information ftow and awareness of the School's own strategic planning outcomes and the place of the OBU in this process. In June the Committee accepted an invitation to make a short presentation to Council on the OBU activities and the key issues we were then addressing. GPS OBU's Council David Irons has continued as the OBU delegate. During the year the Council addressed a questionnaire to each of the GPS OBUs addressing membership issues and policies so that common experiences could be shared. The results of the questionnaire revealed that the Shore OBU is the strongest in terms of life_ membership numbers and the serv1ce and support given to its membership and the wider School community. David Hutchinson was the initiator and convenor of the successful inaugural GPS Gold Challenge for those who left School in 1967 (ie, for those turning 50) which has now become an annual fixmre, with Riverview acting next year as hosts for the!968 leavers. The Council has supported this initiative by making available a trophy for perpetual competition. OBU Scholarship This year the OBU Scholarship was shared between Matthew Press tind Anthony Alexander, two outstanding young men who had demonstrated, through their involvement in activities both inside and outside the classroom, the leadership ability and all round qualities the scholarship seeks to recognise. SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY LINKS War Service Project. This has been a massive project involving the resources of the School, the OBU and the Foundation. The culmination of two years work coming to fruition with the launching of the book, The Torch Bearers - War Service of Shore Old Boys , on Remembrance 294

295 Day, II November, by Air Vice Marshall Ian Esplin, Old Boy and Rhodes Scholar. The book of 832 pages, is a wonderful testimony to those Old Boys who served and to the excellent cooperative efforts of the joint editors, John Gorham and Chris Hewett and the many other people within the School Community who have committed so much of their time and ideas under the Project Chairman, Brian Wileman. The project has led to the amassing of a considerable amount of material to add to the School's valuable archive collection and also to the updating of the Books of Remembrance in the Chapel. Archives One of the most exciting events during the year was the announcement of a commitment by Council to the creation of a dedicated Archives Centre at the bottom of Benefactors to house the School 1 s valuable archive collection. With the archives collection being located in its own area, this will enable day-to-day access by Old Boys, their families and friends of the School to research family and local history, as well as giving access co boys for research projects as part of their current study. It is planned that a full-time archivist will be employed. The challenge as Old Boys is to ensure that the facility will be selffunding with no further call on the School's financial and physical resources. This will require the raising of $1 million by the Foundation under a direct appeal. The members of the OBU have been very supportive of the raising of funds for archives under the Foundation's Educational Giving Program, which this year has raised some $98,400 from Old Boys. The Shore Foundation The OBU has continued to be actively involved and supportive of the many projects and activities of The Foundation. Likewise, The Foundation and its members have been very supportive of the OBU's activities. The War Service Project and fundraising for the School's archives under the Educational Giving Program are two of these activities, while the support of The Foundation for the Touch Football Day at Northbridge ensured its growing success and enjoyment by all those present on the day. David Cribb, the Treasurer has attended Committee meetings throughout the year and helped to keep the OBU informed of The Foundation's fundraising initiatives. The OBU has five trustees on The Foundation, one of whom, Jamie Powell sits on the Board. The Shore Association The OBU continues to enjoy a very close working relationship with The Shore Association. Their President, Mrs Yvonne Kimber has attended Committee meetings and along with her Committee, they have been very supportive of the OBU's activities involving current boys of the School. This has included the inaugural Careers Night for boys in Years 10, 11 and 12; the E-team Project; and the job Preparation and Interviews Project for Year

296 The Mitre Club During the year Graham Thorp succeeded Ray Robinson as Chairman. The Mitre Club continues to grow in numbers and to provide the opportunity for Old Boys of the School who have attained the age of 70 years to gather for various functions, renew old friendships and their association with the School. Friends of Shore The Friends of Shore continues to grow in strength under a very enthusiastic committee headed by Mrs Margaret Colebrook, providing the opportunity for those who are not current parents to maintain contact with the School. A well attended Year 13! Luncheon was held for the first time for the parents of the 1998 leavers, which will become an annual event. Members of the Friends of Shore, many of whom are also members of The Foundacion, have been prominent in their support for the launch for the War Service Book, the conduct of tours of the School and the Touch Football Day. Legends of Shore The OBU continues to support the 1Legends of Shore 1 initiative of The Foundation. This year a luncheon co pay tribute and honour 'The Chier, LC Robson, was held at the Boatshed on the School's birthday, 4 May. Presidential Duties As President I have been privileged to have been asked to attend on behalf of the OBU the functions conducted by The Foundation, The Shore Association, Friends of Shore, Mitre Club, Regional Group Reunions and the OBU Annual Dinners of other GPS Schools, gatherings organised by the GPS OBU's Council and the Council of the AAGPS. In all of these activities I have been supported by my wife, Susie, who on many occasions has been invited to attend as well. As a family we are all very proud of our association with Shore and to be part of the Shore family. As President I attended the Melbourne Group's Family Day and Annual Dinner, the Tamworth and District Dinner, the Far West and Western Districts Family Luncheon and the Canberra-Queanbeyan Family Luncheon. Jamie Powell attended the Riverina Family Day along with Ian Clarke. Old Boys and members of the School Community have greatly appreciated the attendance of the Headmaster, along with that of Mrs Grant and members of staff at the many reunions and other functions held throughout the year. I also attended the GPS OBU's Council Cocktail Parry, the Annual Dinners of Old Sydneians, The Scots College, Old Newingtonians and St Josephs. David Irons represented me at the TAS Weekend, the GPS Gold Challenge Dinner and the Sydney High Dinner, while Jamie Powell represented me at the Old Ignatians and The King's School Dinners. A very special thank you is due to Mrs Jennifer Locke, the OBU's Alumni Secretary. Jennifer's organisational skills, enthusiasm, support and patience is special attributes. Querying and maintaining a database of some 16,000 Old Boys, not all of whom are life members and many of whom do not have 296

297 current addresses, but all of whom the Alumni Office seeks to keep in touch with; assisting with the organisation of a record 10 Year Reunions; giving supporr to the conveners of 5 regional reunions and the inaugural GPS Gold Challenge; and responding to a myriad of requests from all quarters; require pa'rticular skills. V\'e are fortunate to have someone of her calibre and experience to support us in what we do. The last two years have been a most rewarding personal experience and with the completion of the two-year presidential term, one is able to reflect on the many highlighrs and pleasures of office. I have been very privileged and honoured to be your President, to.have had the willing support of the members of vour Committee and to have had the op~ortunity to put back something into this great SchooL Your Committee has achieved most of what the membership of the OBU asked to be done rwo years ago. However there is always so much to do and so little time to do it in, that many.challenges remain to be met by those who will rake over and guide the OBU in the new millennium.

299 OBU News During the year, the OBU has made increasing use of Shore Reports to record items of interest concerning the activities and achievements of Old Boys. The OB U will continue to use Shore Reports as its main channel of communication. As this is a quarterly publication sent to all Old Boys enabling items of interest to be reported on while they are topical) this news has not been summarised and repeated in the Torch Bearer which is published at the end of the year. The President's Report which is included in the Torch Bearer also summarises in detail the activities of the OBU during the year. Careers/job Assistance The OB U wants to expand its carteers database for the Careers Night held at the School in June for current boys and to also assist younger Old Boys with advice and men coring. If.you are interested in helping, please write or fax details to the OBU Office, at PO Box 1221, North Sydney NSW 2059 Tel: , Fax Valete OBITUARIES. Arthur George (Tom) HANSON (28) ( ) Tom was a man with respect for people and institutions. He had a fine sense of fair play and was proud to be an Australian and to serve his country. Above all, Brigadier Tom Hanson, who has died in Sydney at the age of 87, was proud of his origins and devoted to his family. His association with the Ausualian Army spanned 40 years, including the six years of World War II, much of which was spent overseas with the 2/1st Field Regiment. Stockbroking became his career for a quarter of a century after the war. His quiet but generous support of people less fortunate was evident in his work with Legacy and StMartin's Anglican Church, Killara. Arthur George Hanson (Tom to all) was born at Hunters Hill, the eldest of three boys; one brother Geoffrey, died in 1976 after a successful career with David Jones, while the other, Kenneth, perished in 1945 when his Liberator bomber was lost over the Celebes (Sulawesi). All three brothers attended Shore. Young Tom spent his holidays at his father's shack at Avalon; he was present at the first meeting of the Avalon Surf Life Saving Club and a member of the first Avalon te~m to attain their bronze medallion. Although educated at Shore, the hard lessons of the Great Depression were not lost on him and formed a lifelong thrift and concern for others. 299

300 He enlisted in the Army in 1929 to become a gunner in the 7th Field Artillery. Ten years later when the world went to war, he was a captain and joined the 2/lst Field Regiment. In January 1940, the regiment sailed from Sydney on the Orford for the Middle East, where its first actions were at Bardia and Tobruk, Derna and Benghazi. By March in 1941, the regiment was stationed in the interior of Greece. But a month later the German forces had pushed it out, and the men were forced to leave behind their spiked guns and other gear. dispatches campatgn. Hanson was mentioned in for his efforcs 1n the After returning to Australia and reformed in operations for the New Guinea campaigns, the regiment arrived in Port Moresby at a time when the 1 apanese had been pushed back along the Kokoda Track and from Milne Bay. In November 1942, two contingents were flown to Popondetta by USA Dakotas, believed to be the first rime that Australian artillery was flown inw batde. F Troop was under the command of Major Hanson, nicknamed Black Tom, while the battery 1 s codename was Blackforce. Their guns gave strong support for the infantry in decisive defeats of the Japanese at Buna and Gona, and Hanson was awarded the DSO. After home leave, the regiment left Australia for the third time, bound for Wewak and the last actions of the war with Lieutenant-Colonel Hanson as commander of the 2/lst Field Regiment. He is described in the regimental history as being "of medium height and build (with) a slight stoop of the shoulders (giving) emphasis to the serious atticude that made thoroughness in thought and deed his main characteristic.!'although he laughed but seldom, his slow smile could show adequate appreciation, jus.t as its absence could put his disapproval beyond douht. AU ranks of the regiment knew, trusted and respected him and they relished, rather than regretted his undemonstrative manner. 11 Success at Aitape coincided with the Japanese surrender in August 1945, and Hanson was awarded the Bar to his DSO for devotion to duty, planning and the handling of his regiment. After the war he joined the CMF, reaching brigadier in when he was commander of the artillery's 2nd Division. From 1970 to 1972 he was colonel commandant of the Royal Australian Artillery (NSW). Proud of his army life, he attended Anzac Day ceremonies until last year. For several postwar years he worked with the Perpetual Trustee, but in 1951 became a member of the Sydney Stock Exchange, the career in which he spent the rest of this working life.. Tom was a partner in G H Partridge & Co, Mason J Niel & Partridge, and Ralph W King & Yuill and a consultant with Bains. Hanson retired in 1987 when he was 76, but kept a keen eye on business life, particularly mining. He is survived by Betty, his wife of 51 years, his sons, Peter and Rodney, and a daughter Janelle. 300

301 Robin Charles SLESSOR (22) ( ) Robert Charles Slessor died at Caloundra nursing home on Good Friday after a shon illness. He was 92. Robin was a former Sydney journalist and author of the popular Sunshine Coast 11 Snippy 11 canine column. He was a Aamboyanc character and will be sadly missed among his Buderim friends. Bother of Australian poet Kenneth Slessor, also a Shore Old Boy (18), Robert or the "Old Tightwad" as his much loved dog called him in the Snippy column, was a journalist on the Daily Telegraph, The Bulletin in Sydney and a Newcastle newspaper. He retired from Sydney w Buderim in 1972 where the self-taught pianist entertained at nursing homes up until a few years ago. Robin was born in Melbourne and attended Shore for two periods from and After leaving Shore he went to China with his engineer father and learnt how to speak Mandarin fluently. He worked for the Dutch Shell Oil Company until Sir Frank Packer (who coincidentally had attended Shore at the same rime) offered him a job on the Daily Telegraph in In 1936 he was a court reporter and police roundsman with the Sunday Telegraph and stared a two page column about the real life drama of the courts. He became supplements ediror and went on a business mission ro Japan with Kerry Packer, which was very successful. He returned to Buderim afi:er he was injured in a serious car accident and conuibuted weekly articles ro the Sunshine Coast Advertiser and The Daily. He was married briefly to Betty Barnard, but did not have any children. However, he loved young people, children and his dogs. A keen sub-ediror to the end, Robin could not abide bad English and slipshod mistakes by television announcers and radio new readers and often wrote letters to complain. (From the Sunshine coast daily on 7/4/99) NM Snashall (45) writes that "Robin Slessor was a 1 flamboyant- character 1 and proud of his Shore connection. His memory of names and school personalities was remarkable, 1 0nkus 1 Davidson was a favourite, and he kept a school pennant on the wall of his home in Buderim 11 Robert Marsden HOPE (36) ( ) Robert Hope had a distinguished career in the law, part of a life-long commitment to his profession. But Justice Robert Hope, who has died at the age of 80, was a many-sided man who made a significant contribution ro Australia 1 S public, intellectual and cultural life. He was awarded a CMG in 1977 and AC in His interest included art, music, theatre, Australia's heritage and education, including Aboriginal education and training. A liberal, lively, humorous man, he was also a great raconteur with a rich fund of wonderful stories reflecting his abiding interest in people. Robert is best remember as the QC and former NSW Court of Appeal judge who headed two landmark royal commissions in co Australia 1 s security and 301

302 intel~igence services. These led to major reforms which made the Australian Security and Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) more accountable: a parliamentary committee was set up in a watchdog role, an inspector-general of security appointed and the Office of National Assessments (ONA) established. Amid great controversy be presided over three other security-related inquiries - the Coombe-Ivanoff affair, aspects of the Sydney Hilton Hotel bombing and the Melbourne Sheraton Hotel break-in by members of Australia 1 s Secret Intelligence Service (ASIS). To such inquiries Hope brought fair mindedness, commonsense and concern for people 1 s rights, qualities that undoubtedly had much to do with his upbringing. Born in Sydney, Robert Marsden Hope was one of four children of a woolbuyer father and a gregarious mother who was keen on music, magic and spiritualism and had many bohemian friends. He did well at school (Lindfield Public and then Shore from ) but rebelled against conformity and disdained organised sport. He wanted to study arts but his career had been set when he was four; his mother had taken him to a phrenologist who felt the bumps on the youngster's skull and declared his set for the law. Studies at University of Sydney were interrupted by army service in World War II (the Middle East and New Guinea). Stricken with malaria and scrub typhus, he spent six months at Concord Repatriation Hospital during which time he finished law, then lectured in property and divorce. He was admitted to the Bar in 1945; in December of that year he wed June Carter, daughter of a Barraba grazing family. He steadily built up a solid private practice in commercial and appellant law, appeared frequently before the High Court and the Privy Council and in 1969 was appointed a judge of the NSW Supreme Court, then a judge of the NSW Court of Appeal; he was chairman of the NSW Law Reform Commission from 1990 to In 1973 Hope had been proposed for a seat on the High Court and appeared to have the inside running; in the event the seat went to a NSW Supreme Court colleague Ken Jacobs, whom Hope understood to have the backing of the then prime minister, Gough Whitlam. He was never to regret missing out on the High Court place as other areas of endeavour, which he found of absorbing interest, opened up for him. Before the royal commissions into the security and intelligence agencies came up, he was appointed by the Whitlam Government to head a royal commission into the national estate. In later life he was to rate the national estate inquiry, as the best he had ever done and said that he had been greatly helped by the poet Judith Wright. During his early law career, Hope had become involved with the Council of Civil Liberties, of which he was president from 1967 to In this role, he took a close interest in the way NSW police treated Vietnam student protesters whose civil rights, he believed, were being infringed. He sought to have the regulations changed and wrote a booklet on what people should do upon being arrested. Civil liberties activists became aggrieved with Hope over his role in the 302

303 secunty mqmnes and some of his recommendations. He.. kept his membership of the Civil Liberties Council, but came co feel that it lost much of its effectiveness when it changed from being apolitical to being dominated by the Left. He resigned as president of the council on being made a judge. His role in education began with the University of Sydney and his law lectureship. On giving this up, he was elected to the university senate in 1970 serving until This involved him in some spirited discussions and disputes - a notable one with the redoubtable Dame Leonie Kramer mover for the introduction of women's studies as part of the philosophy course. In 1975 that he was approached to become chancellor of Wollongong University. Though he accepted with some misgivings, he found it immensely stimulating and rewarding. He stayed a record 23 years, retiring only in 1997 and was awarded an honorary doctorate in law by that university. Working with successive vicechancellors, but particularly with Ken McKinnon, he presided over the university's major development phase, during which the student body grew from around 1,500 to about 12,000 and a campus was established in Dubai. His steady guidance was a faccor not only in the university's growth but also in its rising academic reputation. His other educational interest was Tranby, the Aboriginal education, and training organisation based in Glebe. He maintained an active role over many years as a board member of Tranby, which concentrated on preparing Aborigines for tertiary education. The demands of his professional life never deterred him from pursuing other interests. He joined the governing body of Musica Viva at the invitation of Ken Tribe (32) an Old Boy contemporary, its then chairman, and served as a member of its national council Over the years, he had similar involvements with the Nimrod and Old Tote theatres, serving as chairman of each company, and of the NSW Heritage Council. He had been close to Sir John Kerr, who sought his opinion on whether he should take up Gough Whitlam's offer of governor-general. Hope advised against it but Kerr lured by the power of the position went ahead anyway. Hope was proud of being direct descendant of the Rev Samuel Marsden, second chaplain of the fledgling NSW colony, despite his "flogging parson" reputation. He also held in high regard his uncle, the Anglican priest F. John Hope who, as a rector of Sydney's Christ Church St Laurence befriended and often gave haven co the well known Sydney eccentric of the time Bea Miles. He was equally appreciative of the achievements of his cousin the historian Manning Clark, yet not one to gloss over his faults and shortcomings. In his approach to the law, he sought to be creative and to give a down to earth human face to it. Law reform was always a matter of concern to him. Indeed, he thought he could improve the way the judiciary made decisions, possibly by adopting a collegiate system with judges discussing a case broughc to them on appeal, rather than each wricing his own judgement and handing it to the president. He deplored the fact that where they 303

304 considered it necessary judges could not call wimesses and that an administrative appeals tribunal had not been set up in NSW. Through he probably came to know more about Australia's secret intelligence network that anyone else in the country, and was once dubbed 11 Godfather to the spies 11, he never sought ro promote himself as an expert on security matters. What probably gave him as much personal satisfaction as anything else was his work in building up Wollongong University as a highly respected tertiary institution. In his quiet unassuming way he must be rated one of the nation's more able achievers. William Sidney MARCHANT (43) ( ) With the passing of William Sidney Marchant, the School lost an Old Boy, who had an unusual, if not unique, record. Bill entered Shore Prep in!937, as a Boarder. Through my friendship with him, I recall one memorable occasion during that year. It was on a wet Saturday afternoon Bill's Father took Bill and myself to the Sydney Cricket Ground to see the New South Wales Waratahs Rugby Team play against the touring South African Springboks, captained by Dr Daniel Craven, who became 11 Mr Rugby 11 in that country. NSW won the match and I can still see the winning try scored. Richards the five-eighth received the Ball, cut through the defence, drew the full back, sent a pass to the inside centre, Cyril ribwers, who scored beside the posts. Sheltered under an umbrella, standing in front of the Brewongle stand, it was an exciting time for two boys witnessing their first Rugby International. Another standout was the NSW Breakaway, Aub Hodgson, an Old Boy of Newington College, with sleeves rolled up, who had a whale of a game! However, it was in the game of cricket.that Bill (Beefy) Marchant made the School sit up and take notice. He acquired the nickname, because as a Prep School boy, he was rather squat and thickset. He was a prodigious spinner of a cricket ball, leg breaks that turned almost square and for such a young boy could also bowl a 11 Wrong-un 11 One could hear his fingers click as the ball left his hand, he put so much spin on it. Boys from the Senior School would come to watch him bowl, whenever he played. In 1939 he entered the Big School and went from the Prep lst, w the school's 2nd XI, an unheard of achievement. He then had four years in the 1st XI in In the match against St Joseph's College, played at Northbridge, he bowled Kelly around his legs, a Ia Shane Warne's famous dismissal of Ganing. Kelly could not believe his eyes, the ball turned so far. 11 Beefy" was rather a rebellious character, who did not take kindly w the discipline imposed upon him by his Hodges housem<ister, nor the famous 11 moans 11 he endured from rhe lst XI coach, Pat Eldershaw. The latter was singularly unimpressed when his star bowler appeared on the ground at The King's School with the sleeves cut out of his cricket shirt. In his teens Bill grew much taller and this combined with his temperament 11 whefeby he rebelled agin the Government 11 appeared to effect his 304

305 accuracy in bowling his big breaks. Bill also played in the 1st XV. In a match against Sydney High School at Northbridge, he did a "Kefa" (first right) with his opposite number. Khan. His ceam mates, including myself, stood back in amazemem and whilst this was going on a High player picked up the ball and scored under the posts, Shore lost the match. 11 Beefy" was a great character, an unusual bloke in many ways, but.one who gave his contemporaries much pleasure, many laughs and great friendship. Members of the Randwick Rugby Club, I am sure, could verify the Iauer, where he spent many an hour in his adult life. I, for one, was glad to have known him and to have played the wonderful game of cricket with him. FM (Ginge) MacDiarmid (43) Kingsley Frederic TUGWELL (45) ( ) Kingsley, nicknamed Fred, was at the school for eight years from 1938, repeating final year on the good advice of LC Robson, the then Headmaster. Kingsleis talents and maturity were put to good use in that year as a prefect and in continuing as a regular member of the 1st XI in his last two years. His academic achievements were solid, perhaps hindered by.his handwriting which, though very neat, was quite difficult to read. A master once grumbled about "difficulty interpreting the scriptures 11 and another teacher holding up a page asking "What do I do with this, sing it? 11 As most were then, he was left on his own to do the best he could with the problem. Maybe the handwriting destined him for Medicine which he studied at the University of Sydney, graduating at the end of His ambition to be a medical allrounder, and that involved residencies in the various disciplines and obtaining a postgraduate diploma over the next six years. He entered the Geeves Practice in Pennant Hills after he and Judy Harbison were married in He held appointments at Hornsby District and the Sydney Adventist Hospitals and obtained further academic diplomas. He became much sought after as a family doctor and the partnership of four continued to serve the community in the tradition of Doctors Geeves. Dick Geeves (42) was the son of Cuthbert the founder of the medical practice, was also at Shore and married Barbara, ~ne of Kingsley's sisters. To complete the family affair Wilton, Kingsley's brother, who left Shore in 1951, also became a partner in the practice. Four children and many grandchildren later, he and judy J)retired 11 in 1992 to pursue their hobby, further enjoyment of life and especially all those people - family, friends and those who found themselves lonely or deserted - they had come to know over the years. They were a great team and had the happy knack of relating easily to others. It was a pity he didn't have more time with us and will be remembered for his integrity, loyalty and humour. He was a man of high principles without being oppressive and his softly-softly approach belied the strengths within. 305

308 THE SHORE FOUNDATION With total income exceeding $2.1 million the Foundation had anocher successful year. The results in each area of the Foundation 1 S activity have been very pleasing. The success has been due to the enormous concribution by the Foundation's various Committees, a very large number of volunteers and, of course, the management support of the wider Shore Community, in particular, the Shore Association, the Old Boys' Union and the Schoo1 1 s administrative staff. The main focus for the Board of Directors has been firstly to raise funds for the Building Trust to enable the Foundation to meet its obligation of $2 million rowards the cost of the New Library, Multi Media Centre and Gymnasium Project. Secondly, to encourage donations and raise funds from events and activities for the Educational Trust. The Foundation has continued this year to focus on encouraging bequests with the objective of securing a flow of Educational Trust funds into the School to well into the next century. Results to date have been very encouraging. In the long-term, bequests will become increasingly important to the future financial strength of the School. A report covering the major activities of the Foundation follows. Building Trust The Building Trust this year had donations totalling $388,985. This is a very pleasing result including a high level of participation from current parents. Programs currently raising funds for the Building Trust are: Building Fund Voluntary Donations Holtermann Program Foundation Membership Foundation through the Building The Trust is now raising funds for its commitment of $2 million towa.rds the cost of the New Library, Multi Media and Gymnasium ProjecL Building Fund Donations The Voluntary Donation of $80 per family was included on each of the three billing accounts for the year. The response to this program raised $151,000 from approximately 65% of parents. This form of optional support gives all families the opportunity to make donations to help support the financing of the School's Building Programme. Holtermann Program The Holtermann Program aims to auracr support at the higher levels of Foundation Membership and provides 308

309 recognition opportunmes m The Centenary Building and the New Library Building. In most cases where recognition has been approved, plaques have been mounted on an appropriate wall to acknowledge the support given. Auditorium Seats With all seats in the stalls of the Ken and Joan Smith Auditorium having been sponsored, in 1998 the Foundation released seats in the dress circle. In the year 40 seats were sponsored raising $20,000 for the Foundation. As of 1stjuly.1999, 26 seats remain available for members of the Shore Community to sponsor. Membership This year the Membership Program was headed by Peter Braun who was assisted by group leaders Bruce Chenery, lvo Clarke, Menan Keily and Jamie Stanistreet together with eight other parents. This group approached 130 new parents during the first half of At the time of writing 52 new members have joined with a final figure of around 60 anticipated. The percentage of current parents who are members of the Foundation is 36%. A total of 1,248 people have joined the Foundation since it was registered as a public company in The current membership number. stands at 1,116, which takes into account resignations, deaths, etc since Trust increased during the year by approximately $800,000.

The Bequest Programme, launched in 1996, has been very well received especially for bequests in the medium and low range, where there has been much activity. When you are making your Will please remember the School. Annual Giving The Annual Giving Program previously referred to as the Educational Giving Program, commenced in This year the Committee has been under the leadership of Andy Warden ('55) together with nine year group leaders. In the year the program began seeking support for the School Archives Fund by tax deductible donations. In March this year the School Council in conjunction with the Old Boys' Union and the Foundation made a major commitment to expanding and preserving the School's unique archive collection. As a result of this decision the Annual Giving program has a target of $1.5 million to raise over the next 3 to 5 years in order to support the Archive Centre so that there will be no further call on the School's financial and physical resources. This year the Foundation and Committee have been responsible for the marketing and administration of the program to all Old Boys who left prior to a mailing of over 4,000. Which has been an outstanding success raising $96,000. The Foundation acknowledges the Chairman, Andy Warden, and his Committee of year group leaders for their continued support of this very important Foundation programme. Projects and Events During this reporting year the Foundation had its busiest year ever of activities involving the Shore Community. The year included two new events; a parents Revue and a Golf Challenge. The Board of Trustees is vety appreciative of the assistance given by Jenny Stitt and Irma Reid in the Development Office, coordinating the bookings and all the administration for these events. A report of the events conducted during the year follows: Northbridge Barbecues This year is the Foundation's fifth year of organising the barbecue, tea and coffee facility at Northbridge during the winter football season. The Foundation is vety grateful for the support of Dee Gribble, Jenny Stitt, the Shore Association mothers and the many other parents who assisted this year. A surplus of approximately $5,000 was donated to the Educational Trust from the 1998 season. A total of $45,000 has been donated to the Education Trust in the five years of this service. Shore Label Wine The Foundation continued to market Shore label wine from Tyrrell's Wines. This year a N.V. Brut was added to the mnge of red and white wine. Shore label wines are available on a direct order basis 310

311 from Tyrrell's with a percentage from each sale being rebated. ro the Educational Trust. Donations to the Educational Trust for the year from the sale of the wine was $12,513. The Foundation is most grateful for' the support given to this project by Bruce and Pauline Tyrrell and to the many members of the School Community who have purchased wine. Rowing Challenge The third Rowing Challenge was held this year with ten VIlis on the water for three weeks of training, then competing on Regatta Day for the Challenge Cup. The Foundation was very pleased to have 'Norwegian Capricorn Line' as the major sponsor for this year's Challenge. A Launch Party was held at the Boatshed for all competitors. The crews were able to witness their progress on the big screen prior to race day!! The Challenge Cup was very eagerly contested in a knocko~t competition over a 500-metre course being won by the 'Workshift Warrior' crew stroked by Richard Legge. The 'Plate' final was won by 'Team Lexus' stroked by Judy Shaw.

Titled "What ever you do don't mention the Warn tying into the School's War Service Project, it was without doubt an outstanding success. A cast of 32 parents attended practice sessions at least twice a week for four months under the direction of 'Act-up Productions'. 'Act-up Productions' were contracted to produce the show. All cast members received professional training in dance, acting and mime routines for the over 50 acts in the show. The Revue was performed for three nights in the War Memorial Hall. that had been totally decorated m army camouflage. The audience enjoyed the show in cabaret style either. bringing their refreshments and food platters or purchasing one of the 1 gourmet 1 ration packs, that had been produced by the Shore Association 1 s gourmet stall. Ross Alexander, who commenced as Chairman of the Revue prior to his appointment as Executive Director of the Foundation and his Committee are to be congratulated on a wonderful, well organised and very entertaining event. The Board of Trustees is very appreciative of the many sponsors who assisted in defraying some of the expenses of the Revue.
