AAGPS Sports Update – 6 May 2020

The AAGPS Chairman, Mr Mark Ticehurst, in consultation with the GPS Headmasters’ Standing, wishes to advise the following update regarding the return to GPS sporting programmes in 2020:

As boys return to Schools, the AAGPS continues to monitor Government guidelines regarding a possible return to School Sports. It appears that the approach of a systematic phased return could be adopted with details and timing to follow.

 However, for the AAGPS, the decision has been made to concentrate on Athletics in Term 2 with the possibility of the AAGPS Championships scheduled for Term 3.

 It is proposed that decisions about the full Winter Sports season be deferred until the status of the COVID-19 environment in New South Wales is more fully understood and guidelines are released by Government sources.

 A modified or full Winter Sports season may be possible in Term 3 but it is premature to commit to that at the present time.

 For further information or clarification, please contact Mr Mark Ticehurst, AAGPS Chairman on 0427 990 761, or Mr Nigel Price, Executive Officer on 0497 012 143.
