On Thursday the 28th of July, Miranda RSL Youth Club held the 2022 Sydney East Combined High School (CHS) Trampoline Trials. Five athletes were selected to represent Sydney East at the 2022 Combined High School (CHS) Trampoline Championships which will be held in Gosford on the 27th and 28th of September.

ANZAC DAY DAWN SERVICE

25TH OF APRIL, 2022

ANZAC Day is a chance to pay tribute to those who have served and to thank those who continue to serve today. This year, the Miranda RSL Sub-Branch is once again hosting an ANZAC Day Dawn Service at the Miranda War Memorial. Youth Club members are strongly encouraged to attend.

Youth Club members are to meet at the front door of Miranda RSL Youth Club at 5:30am to march at 5:45am. Breakfast will be provided after the service. Please wear Club uniform. 

Volunteers are needed to help with the Community BBQ breakfast. Please see Robert Bull at the Youth Club or ring 9522 0484 or 0427 944 379 if you can assist.

This year, we were unable to hold our annual Display Day event due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, we held a Showcase Week and invited family and friends to sit in for a class to give our athletes the chance show off their routines and all the new skills they have learnt this year. During this week, we also presented our Perpetual Trophies for 2020.

Congratulations to our award recipients;

Ritchie Gillies Award – Karate Most Improved  Nathan Donaldson

Kara Miller Award – Trampoline Encouragement Award  Lucas Samuel

If you would like access to the photos from Showcase Week 2020, please send us a message and we will provide you with the link as soon as possible.

2020 has certainly been a year to remember and we are looking forward to what 2021 has in store. Starting Monday, we will be running a special ‘Games Week’ program to celebrate the end of the year. Term 4 classes will end on Thursday the 17th of December.

As this will likely be the last update for the year, we hope you have a very happy holidays and as always, stay safe!

At 6am on ANZAC Day, we ask you to stand in your driveway, on your balcony or in your living room to remember all those who have served and sacrificed. You can tune in to the Australian War Memorial commemorative service from 5:30am on the ABC.
