Sports Awards 2015

Sports Awards 2015
Last week Toolooa held its annual sports awards in order to recognise the sporting achievements of our students. It was pleasing to see such a large number of students, parents and teachers present at the event.
The fact that so many people were there clearly demonstrates how highly we as a community value youth sport.
This year we had over 100 students receive awards for their sporting accolades. These awards included Port Curtis, Capricornia and State Representations. Furthermore, the night also provided us with an opportunity to present our Best & Fairest awards to students. The recipients of the Best & Fairest awards were selected based on the students’ performance and sportsmanship shown throughout the interschool sporting competitions this year.
Following on from these awards, I had the pleasure of announcing the recipients of our three most prestigious awards. These were the Team of the Year, Junior Sports Person of the Year and Senior Sports Person of the Year. The winner of the Team of the Year was presented to Open Years Boys Volleyball team which was coached by Chris Hill. The team performed exceptionally well and finished 2nd in the QLD Schools Cup. The winner of the Junior Sports Person of the Year was Hayden Pease for his performance in Hockey this year.
The Senior Sports Person of the Year was Georgia Muir for her performances in a whole range of sports.
Congratulations to not only our Team or the Year, Junior and Senior Sports Person of the Year but to all our award recipients. I wish them all the best of luck with their sporting endeavours in the future and look forward to seeing them again next year.
I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank our wonderful sponsors. It is through their continued support that we are able to recognise our young athlete’s achievements in their sporting endeavours. It would be greatly appreciated if you can support these businesses as they have done this year.
Our sponsors for 2015 include:
  • Barnes Electrical
  • The Grand Hotel
  • Gladstone Printing Services
  • Gladstone Cinemas
  • HUB Fitness
  • McDonalds
  • Jamaica Blue
  • Red Rooster

Finally, I would like to thank all the teachers who have coached teams this year. Whilst I do believe this is a rewarding experience, I do recognise that this is a time consuming process also and for that I’m grateful for your continued support.
See You All In 2016!
