                         Sydney High Weekend
                         With 200 Sydney High boys with us from Friday to Sunday, last weekend was the single biggest
                         sporting occasion at TAS this year. It was also the biggest that our two schools have participated
                         in as shooting and football were added to the usual encounters of basketball, tennis and rugby.
                         To the casual observer it must appear that TAS and Sydney High are hugely different institutions;
                         in size, location, student make-up and educational system. Our long connection through the
                         GPS and common sporting ethos bridge these differences though and make the matching a
                         happy one. The weekend was again a resounding success and I was delighted to see such good
                         spirit and sportsmanship across the board. It was fitting that the victories were shared and I
                         congratulate all our sportsmen on their efforts.
We are very fortunate that Sydney High generously commit to travelling to Armidale each year and I offer special thanks
to their Headmaster, Dr Jagger and all the High staff for making this possible.

Coonabarabran Horse Sports Expo
I very much enjoyed making my first visit to the Horse Sports at Coonabarabran on Sunday and it really was quite an
experience. The TAS team of Ed Hoddle, Ben Armstrong, Jordan Rose and Nick Murray were amongst some 570 riders
from schools across NSW and the sheer size of the event was something to behold. I was proud to see our boys carrying
themselves and performing so well and I offer them congratulations on their commitment to their sport and their
performance over the four days of competition.

Armidale Eisteddfod
ʻChoirs Nightʼ is one of the showcase evenings of the Armidale Eisteddfod and last nightʼs event was a highlight of
the 2009 program. TAS was proudly represented by the TAS Singers in the final three major categories and performed
very well indeed with first place in the small choirs (up to 9 choristers), second in the first open choirs section (for two
contrasting pieces with at least 3 parts) and third in the New England Choral Championship. These fine results in strong
and big fields reflect the talent and dedication of our TAS Singers and I congratulate them on their performances last
night.



Chaplain-Richard Newton In Life’s waiting Room Romans 8: 22-25
Imagine, if at all possible, being a Bulldogʼs supporter. Imagine how you would feel every time a
refereeʼs decision goes ʻupstairsʼ to the video ref. The wait must be pure torture. I would say for
any league supporter the wait for the video refʼs decision is a very good example of waiting eagerly.
When the ref draws the imaginary box in the air, all eyes turn to the big screen, spectators shuffle
forward to the edge of their seats and they wait eagerly for the decision. However in the case of
the Dogʼs supporter it is not so much a longing but a dread. For all too often it has resulted in
disappointment. Poor doggies! As a Dragons fan, I like it!
In the passage we hear that the whole of creation groans as it waits for the hope that is still to come.
In fact the groaning is that of a woman in labor. This is indeed a desperate groan. We wait for the
hope that will come. It is a good thing that we wait for, not some colossal disappointment like the video ref might hand
down, but redemption, the freedom from the pain and disappointment that this world and this life bring.
But we wait. We wait for that time to come; we are urged here to wait patiently. I may seem like captain obvious here, but
we wait because it has not yet arrived. Some people become disappointed with God now, because they wonder ʻwhy is
there pain and suffering?ʼ But this is to confuse what he has promised. He has not promised a pain free existence in the
waiting room, in this life, in the here and the now, this is a promise for the future, a certain outcome still to eventuate,
we know what we wait for, and so we hope, and we do not hope for what we have already received.

This weekend was smaller than our last sessions out at
the UNE but the cold weather did not fail us at all, it was
freezing! The team was still keen for hockey and after we
had done a few drills we took on the Ex-servies team.
They were strong and older than us but we still tried hard
and had lots of fun doing it. Just a reminder that there will
not be hockey over the long weekend. Thanks.

TAS Tadpoles
                                       Miss Lucy Southeren
The TAS Tadpoles played a fantastic game on the weekend
and it is clear that all their hard work in training has been
paying off. The girls were much more aggressive in the
game this week which was wonderful to see. Lilly Graham
was in the thick of the game and tackling and Lucy Ball
got stuck into the ball in first half and stayed on the other
team attacking until she got it - it was wonderful to watch.
Sam Behrend and Harry Ackling were quick to spot gaps in
the field, and run into them to receive the ball. Everybody
remembered to spread out and Stuart Epworth and Jack
Ackling made great use of their new passing skills. All in
all excellent team work Tadpoles, keep it up!
