Rugby often has the mud, rain and wind whipping around us for hours, but on Friday 5th October 2018 the sun was blazing, leaving spectators nursing redness of sunburn. This was coupled with an amazing standard of Rugby. Nine schools looking to compete for the trophy in two groups of round-robin fixtures. The U11s started off with a gutsy battle against Bickley Park. relinquishing the ball to often allowed Bickley to dominate and take the spoils. For our boys the next venture was Farrington's. Sometimes in Rugby the ball can become a bar of soap and this was the case for us. Contact not being our favourite part of the game but also, as they are aware, an important part of the game, it was often what let us down. Our final fixture was versus Meron Court. At last we scored our first try of the afternoon with Cassius Haye finally using his blistering speed to break through. However, another loss dampened any chance of a final revival. The main final was between Bickley Park and Trinty. A tough contest that swayed from one team to another. Eventually Bickley Park shone through and won , 2 tries to 1.
 
Well done to all the boys who took part and many thanks to all those that came to watch.

Sad News from the SCA. Could you help? Print E-mail

4th October 2018

Dear Parents,

As you may be aware the SCA has had a tumultuous few years with a few changes in leadership. No-one is at fault here. However, circumstances have conspired to mean that the SCA are again at a crossroads with no Chair in place.

The remaining officers - myself (Vice Chair), Janick Jenkins (Treasurer) and Andrea Bruin (Secretary) - have met to discuss the situation at some length and now propose the following course of action:

1. Investigate if there is anyone interested in taking on the role of Chair/Joint Chairs immediately - this would mean that the Christmas Fair would become the first item on their To Do list and they would then lead the SCA into the next calendar year. We are keen to avoid a long period of uncertainty so we are looking for someone able to step in within the next week or so to take this on and make a start on organising the Christmas Fair.

2. If there is no-one in a position to take on the role of Chair, then we propose that we effectively put the SCA into "sleep" mode. Panto tickets and Christmas cards would still go ahead but after that no further events/fundraising would take place for the rest of this academic year.

3. There are a number of constitutional issues to consider but, in brief, we would plan to retain the charity number and the bank account with sufficient funds ensuring the core infrastructure remains in place, allowing for the resurrection of the SCA in the future. We are currently investigating different options for the distribution of the current SCA funds (c.£20k), with the possibility of allowing a parent body vote on how those funds are spent but this is for further discussion with school should we get to that point.

4. There would be no specific plan/timeline around resurrecting the committee/events - that would be up to someone in the future at any point to drive this forward on their own timetable.

5. It is hoped that the second-hand uniform service could remain in operation with the funds raised possibly going to the termly charity - but, again, this is subject to agreement from a number of parties.


6. At this stage we are not scheduling another committee meeting until it becomes clear what the remit of the meeting will be - supporting and setting-up a new team or discussing and agreeing the issues around making the SCA dormant.

NB We are pretty clear that because of the nature of the committee and the events/fundraising it is necessary to have someone/two people actively taking on the Chair role. It is just not possible to run everything with different groups of people or a revolving rota of Chairs - to keep everything running smoothly it really does need a coherent and consistent approach in order to keep all the balls in the air.


If any parent(s) feels able to take on the role either on their own or as a duo, please drop me a line and I am more than happy to have a chat with you.

Thanks, as ever, for your support.
