Kung Fu Classes at the Gibbons Pavilion
Following their Year 8 workshop last year, the Yut Hung Kung Fu Academy is now teaching classes at Radford College.  All classes are taught by Radford Collegian Dr Wilson Lo, who started the academy 15 years ago with the emphasis on the tuition of practical self-defence and upholding the three virtues of Discipline, Respect and Compassion.  The academy also runs Canberra Dragon Dance, so students have the option of performing in martial arts, dragon and lion dance in major festivals and events across Canberra. 

Classes are held at the Gibbons Pavilion on Monday and Thursdays 4:00 – 5:30pm.  For more information visit or call Dr Wilson Lo on 0419297347 or just pop into a class and say hello!

Rugby – Refereeing Course for Kids Rugby
Just a reminder for those who may be interested in learning to be a referee for kid’s rugby. 

Brumbies Development Office are looking for expressions of interest from any student ages 13+ (if your child is turning 13 this year, they are also eligible) who are interested in learning to be a referee for kid’s rugby. 

The course will run through all the basic laws and skills including the SMART RUGBY component, to enable the participant to referee a game with confidence.  This program also falls under the skill component of the Duke of Edinburgh and can be used towards completion of Bronze and Silver awards. 

The course takes approximately 2.5 hours.  After the course, the participants will need to complete a short exam (open book) on the laws of rugby which will be held in the rugby learning centre. 

This course is great for increasing rugby knowledge for current players and aspiring referees. It is also good for clubs and schools to upskill a parent or manager who can fill in a game on the weekend, if the team does not have an appointed referee. 

Once the course and the online exam are completed, the participant will be given a whistle, a card, and uniform to referee. 

If you or your child is interested in this course, please forward an email to with your details.
