Sports Academy Awards – Friday 1 December
Posted on 10/11/2017
On Friday the 1 December the school held its annual Sports Academy Presentation afternoon. In attendance was Terry Waldron, Tom Bottrell (Key note speaker, CEO South Fremantle FC), as well as parents and community members that support the school.
Kate Dyson from the Netball Academy was the MC for the afternoon and she did a fantastic job. Students were presented with a variety of awards across all year groups and sports. The 2 most prestige’s awards were presented to Megan Elliot (Commodine Award) and David Phillips (Waldron Medal). The Commodine Award is given to a student who contributed both on and off the court and is sponsored by the Shire of Cuballing and we thank them for their support. The Waldron Medal is given to the student who in the eyes of the PE department is the best athlete. David played in in the WA U15 hockey team this year and two different carnivals.
Mr Bottrell’s key note address had a lot to offer students and adults. A big take home message is that you have to picture yourself doing something, before you set off to achieve it. The benefit of this is that when things get tough on the pathway to your goal, you already have a mental picture of you being successful, which can make the hard work easier.
The PE staff would like to thank the Academy Parent committee for their support. In particular Mrs Katie Wilson who has been the secretary for a number of years and who is stepping down at the end of this year.
