Marron Cup 

Each year Serpentine Jarrahdale Grammar School celebrates the annual Marron Cup event. The Inaugural event was held in 2007 with the objective to begin a tradition to celebrate the new school year.

The Marron Cup trophy itself represents the community spirit that was involved during the establishment of Serpentine Jarrahdale Grammar School, the first High School within the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale.

The trophy is awarded to the winning house, either Whitby or Yarrabah, which gathers the most points throughout the day by participating in a range of activities. This year the Marron Cup is being held on Friday 16 February, with festivities commencing at 3.10pm and finishing off at 6.30pm on the Main oval.

The Marron Cup is also designed to commence the Challenge Cup competition, an award that congratulates the winning house from the combined aggregate of the many sporting and co-curricular events held throughout the year. With all students wearing their house uniform to school on Marron Cup day, it's a great opportunity to set the scene for a competitive year between the two Whitby and Yarrabah houses.

For each house to be awarded points on Marron Cup day, students will participate in a variety of cricket based activities throughout the day, with the showcase events being Whitby Vs Yarrabah cricket matches held between 1.30pm and 6.30pm on the main oval for years 5-12 students. (timetable to come)

Cricket isn't the only activity that is available during the afternoon festivities, there will be a range of amusements that I'm sure will keep the younger and older students, and even some keen parents (and teachers) amused for the entirety of the afternoon. To give you all a hint, bring a towel.

There will be the following attractions available from 3.10pm-6.30pm;

• Giant Slip and Slide (wet): See if you can slide the distance of the giant slip and slide into the pool within the fastest amount of time against your house rival.

• Bounce and Slide combo (dry): Bounce on the jumping castle and/or slide down the attached 10m slide.

• 10m Giant slide (wet): gather momentum down the 10m high waterslide.

• Beach Volleyball 

• Basketball 

• P & F Sausage Sizzle and drink station

• Free face Painting

• Mr. Whippy Ice Cream van

• Boost Juice Van

• 3 C's Coffee Van

• Churro Van

• Music and student buskers 

• Archery (back oval)

All students, parents and families are encouraged to attend this wonderful event, and with many families new to the School Community, it provides a great opportunity to get to know all of the friendly faces in our vibrant community.

On a final note, the P&F will be holding down the fort at the Sausage Sizzle station, so if anybody is interested in joining the P&F team for 2018 and beyond, the 2018 meeting schedule will be advertised in the sausage sizzle area. Please feel free to introduce yourself to the team whilst you are there.

A cricket timetable will be sent out early in week 3 to ensure all parents know what time their child is playing, if they have chosen to participate.
