Letter from Bryan Marshall explaining the decision to cancel interschool sport in the Western Ranges District.

The Ipswich & District Sport Executive Committee and other school representatives met to discuss the proposed Interschool Gala Days pencilled in for Term 4 and whether the current restrictions and sport specific/venue considerations would be manageable or if there were too many areas of concern to continue. After extensive conversations over the last week and during yesterday’s meeting and reflecting on recommendations from schools and talking with various community stakeholders, it is with regret that we have decided to cancel all proposed Interschool Sports competitions for the remainder of 2020 and hope that the current restrictions ease in 2021 and we can reintroduce regular competition next year. 

 

This decision is not one made lightly and numerous factors have been considered when reaching this judgement. We recognise that school sport has numerous positive outcomes for our students and this decision will cause disappointment for some, however, we will continue to place the highest priority on the health, safety and well-being of all students, staff, parents and other community members.

 

I would like to apologise for any inconvenience this decision may cause, however, we have tried to act in the best interest of everyone involved. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Regards,

 

Bryan
