Celebration of Sport

12 Oct 2016

On Tuesday 11 October, the College community came together to celebrate sporting excellence at Genazzano FCJ College at our annual Celebration of Sports evening.

Besides just being fun, sports can help you perform better in school, relax more and worry less, deal with setbacks, work better with others and increase your energy - all of which helps you balance school and everything else going on in your life.

We celebrated all these benefits and much more - the outstanding achievement of students in their chosen sports, both at school and in the various Sporting Associations in which they participate. These include GSV (Girls’ Sport Victoria), SCSA (Secondary Catholic Sporting Association) and SSV (School Sport Victoria).

The guest speaker for the evening was Bridget Barker, 2015 AFL Woman of the Year (Emerging Leader) - an award she deservedly received following her contribution to the game as a player, coach and employee.

Congratulations to all students whose achievements were acknowledged for their involvement, sportsmanship, team spirit and passion. View the full list of award winners below.
