Senior Sports Dinner and Awards 2019
On Saturday 23rd March, we were joined in College by 200 students and 90 parents for our annual Senior Sports Dinner and Awards. It was a truly fantastic evening celebrating many of the wonderful achievements of some very talented students.
Coaches' Awards give the coaches of each sport a chance to recognise a student who demonstrates reliability and commitment to the team, and who shows resilience both on and off the playing field. These awards are not given based on performance, but on other qualities, such as: enthusiasm, self-motivation, the ability to motivate others, coachability, receptiveness, and a desire to improve.
