2018  Junior Sports Awards

The Junior Sports Awards held in the Gym this week were an opportunity to acknowledge all those students who participate in sport at OHS.

Mr Coombes began by thanking all students who had played sport this year. He encouraged everyone to participate again next year. There are teams available at all skill levels. If you have never played before you can still be involved. Playing sport is a great way to learn skills that are important in life. Teamwork, commitment, loyalty and courage are just some of the skills that you develop when you play sport. It is a great thing to have on your CV, when one day you apply for leadership roles, scholarships, courses or jobs! So do not be afraid to try something new. Make the most of every opportunity!

Congratulations to all students who received awards. Thank you to all those coaches, managers and teachers who gave up time to make it possible for so many students to play.

Thank you also to Head Girl Emma Tuave and Prefects Chryss Viliko and Alexander Lam Sam for coming back to school to MC and help with the Award Ceremony.
