The College considers sport as one of the most essential parts of a well-rounded education and always looks forward to the annual Sports Awards evening, when students, parents and staff can come together to celebrate the achievements that have taken place over three trimesters of sport
At this year’s event, on Wednesday 2 November, an additional feeling of jubilation was present, due to the pride of having reclaimed the TAS Champion School status. An outstanding result achieved through student commitment, quality coaching, determination and desire. The evening was heightened by professional musician, Darran Muller and the vocal and instrumental entertainment provided by students Kyle Bryant, Sophia Hughes, Matt Garnett and Marcus van Wessem. We were also delighted to welcome Joshua Robinson, 2016 Olympian, as our special guest speaker.
School spirit is very much a part of Ormiston College; good sportsmanship, teamwork and fair play are all important life skills that can be acquired on the playing field. This year’s Sports Awards night was a wonderful opportunity to congratulate and share the athletic skills and talents of so many of our students in so many different sports. The sheer number of student acknowledged on the night demonstrates what a great sporting school Ormiston College has become.
