From Director of Co-Curricular, Mr Steve O’Donnell
2020 has been an extraordinary year and I want to thank all students, parents, staff, and coaches for their patience, grit, resilience, and adaptability around co-curricular over the year. We are so blessed to be living in Australia and attending such a wonderful school and I hope all students are grateful for the opportunities we have. I know many students have set SMART goals for 2020 and beyond and many of these goals were around improving their health, fitness, and skills in a range of sports and activities. The importance of physical activity and its’ positive impact on other dimensions including mental, emotional, social, and spiritual health is even more highlighted after the year that we have had. I encourage all students to keep active, make smart choices around food, and keeping themselves safe over the holiday period. I also encourage all students to keep working to improve their performances through regular exercise. Working to achieve some of the goals set for 2021 starts now and many boys and opposition schools have already been training in many areas. I also want to make special mention of Ms Belinda Buchan who ran a Masterclass: Talented Athlete Mentoring Program session last Wednesday that was very well attended by the students. Please look out for more work in this area in 2021.
