2014 Sports Dinner a Great Success
Feedback from the 470 attendees at the St John’s Annual Sports Dinner held on Monday 27 October indicated that this event was one of the highlights of 2014 . The Dinner celebrated the achievements of our students, their coaches, teachers and volunteers who have engaged in the sporting program this year.
What has been most evident in 2014 is that students are very keen to develop their fitness and skill levels and to do their very best for their teams and for the College. This is evident across all sports and in all year levels. With more than 70 Primary students attending Running club on Thursday mornings and sometimes 30 at Junior Running Club on Wednesday mornings, the overall standard of fitness is improving .
From our very youngest learners in Kindy who are engaged in Perceptual Motor Training to develop their co-ordination, and primary students who are training for and participating in the Junior TAS fixtures and carnivals and in representative teams; to the secondary students who have a very full schedule involving training and competition for both individuals and teams at school, regional, state and international level we have much to celebrate this year.
We thank Mr Kevin Murray and Mr Richard Haines for their leadership and management of the College sporting program in 2014 and look forward to continuing development in 2015.
