Sports Awards

The College’s annual Sports Awards Dinner is an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the talented individuals and teams who have enjoyed sporting success during the school year. There are awards for individual sports codes, as well as the five main awards that the event builds towards at the end of the evening: Leading Sportsman, Sports Performer of the Year (Yr 7-8 and Yr 11-13), the Westpac Cup and the Premier Team of the Year. Our young men who have represented their country at their chosen sport(s), or who have won National titles, are also recognised on the night and presented with a Sports Medallion.

A guest speaker from the world of high-performance sport will be there on the night to present the boys their awards. The night is a wonderful opportunity for all sections of the College community to come together and celebrate success.
