2021 Sports Achievers' Breakfast

On Friday 29 October 2021, we held our annual Sports Awards to recognise the outstanding sporting achievements of our students.

Congratulations to all the girls who received awards or were nominated for their sporting success and contribution.

A special thank you to guest speaker Brooke Neal – All About Balance, who spoke on screen to the girls. Brooke, a former New Zealand Hockey player and Olympian, and current mindset coach, spoke to the girls about the importance of finding balance to take control of anxiety, perfectionism, and burnout.

Thank you to the many parents who joined us online. It was a wonderful morning of celebration.

Photos capturing the award winners are available to view and download below.
