The annual OHS Sports Awards were held recently in the school hall, which had been transformed into a sophisticated venue worthy of celebrating the achievements of our young sports men and women.
Director of Sport Mr Chad Coombes began the evening by acknowledging and thanking all of the students who had participated in sport this year, “...we need every single one of you when it comes to team sport and each and every one of you are valued members of our teams.” Mr Coombes thanked all the coaches and managers, acknowledging the “sacrifice and hard work” they had put in to their teams. We look forward to the JETS (Junior Emerging Talent Squads) Programme, beginning next year.
Once again OHS was fortunate enough to have the wonderful Mr Willie Iosia MC the evening, for which we are very grateful.
We were absolutely delighted to have former New Zealand Warriors and New Zealand League player Ruben Wiki as the guest speaker. Ruben is High Performance Manager for NZ Rugby League and High Performance Assistant with the Warriors. We would like to thank Ruben most sincerely for taking the time out of his busy schedule to entertain and inspire us.
Congratulations and thank you to Mr Coombes and Mr Jacobsen for organising this celebration of sport at OHS.
Congratulations to all those students who received awards and to the sports council, staff and students who contributed to making the evening a great success.
The Food and Hospitality students excelled providing dish after dish of delicious food, very much appreciated by all.
A full list of award winners will be published in the year book, and photos from the evening are on the school facebook page.
