On Thursday 14 September, the Middle School joined as one to witness an enthralling Grand Final of the Say No To Bullying Middle School Cup between Germany and North Korea.
In a game that highlighted the silky skills of our Middle School students, Germany defeated favourites North Korea in a penalty shoot-out to win the Grand Final. Congratulations to students Caden Penniket, Tom Reid, Chris Delibaltas, James Body, Flynn Andrews and Laif Williams.
The knockout competition attracted a record 36 football teams each taking part to promote the strong message of Saying No to Bullying at Ormiston College. For the first time a team consisting of Middle School Teachers took part. Although knocked out early in the competition, the team led by Captain Melodie Nelson (Year 8 Coordinator) is already preparing for next year’s event.
Participation, cooperation, organisation, respecting each other, being a good sport, and most importantly getting along and having fun are the main aims of this annual tournament. The team from Greece won the Best Dressed Award. It was great to see so many participants dressing for the occasion for their adopted country of choice. All games were played in good spirit.
Well done to all Middle School students and staff members for supporting this event and in particular to the 240 players for taking part and making it a huge success. Thank you to all the Year 9 students who took on the role of referee throughout the tournament. 2018 promises to be even bigger and better!
