A SPORTS WRAP FROM OUR 2016 SPORTS CAPTAINS
Sport in 2016 has proven to be another successful year for the College. Not only have we excelled on the field, but the participation from so many students was amazing to witness and encouraging for future years.
Our goal for 2016 was to improve the sporting culture at the College; we believe that if the culture is strong, participation and the enjoyment of sport all-round will be high. To achieve this, we: introduced more lunchtime activities; had three games, in various sports, of teachers versus students; introduced a new war-cry to the junior years; and organised a sport teacher appreciation breakfast. All four of these initiatives brought people together and served a different purpose for creating a better culture, whether it was to make friends through lunchtime games, watch role models play sport, or feel part of a community chanting a war-cry with the whole of CHAC.
On the field, CHAC has once again met its high expectations with many Premierships being won throughout the year, across a wide range of sports. Additionally, due to a massive team effort for all who were involved in TAS Cross Country, we were able to take away 2nd position overall. Trimester 3 was once again our strongest of the three, with CHAC finishing as the top College for the second year in a row. Overall, in all the TAS competitions held this year, CHAC finished in 3rd position. We should all be extremely proud as it is the best we have ever achieved.
Looking back on the year it has been one full of highs. We have thoroughly enjoyed leading the College in all aspects of sport this year and thank Mr Spindler who gave us the opportunity to do so, and who guided us along the way. We are confident that next year’s Captains, Frankie and Flynn, will continue to grow and nurture CHAC’s sporting excellence and strive to improve our overall position in TAS.
