                    FROM THE SPORTS DEPARTMENT


WELCOME!

Wow, how this year has flown. I cannot believe that I am actually writing the
final Sports Report for 2010. This year has been full of many amazing sporting
highlights individual and as a College. 2010 saw the greatest number of
students in the College history selected for representative teams including
four Queensland representatives and one Australian representative. Our
representative teams also achieved great success as did the teams that
competed for the College in the Inter-School sporting competitions, with three
of our teams (9B & Open B Rugby League & Junior Boys Basketball) taking
out their respective competitions.

The Cathedral College is extremely proud of the sporting opportunities it
provides for students, however this would not be possible without the
continued support of the staff. I would like to take this opportunity to thank
those staff who week in week out gave of their time to assist with sport.

Sport here at TCC is thriving with more students participating and
experiencing success on and off the field. Sport is so much more than fitness.

To the parents who not only support their children in their sporting
endeavours, but for also supporting the College as a whole. “Thank you”.

I can only imagine the potential 2011 has if 2010 is anything to go by, and that
is very exciting thought indeed.

I wish all the best for those students that are leaving the College, especially
my Touch Football girls who over the past four years have been one of my
greatest highlights. To my Senior Girls Basketball team, remember our
lesson… always have fun and never give up trying and to the QISSN seniors
of 2010, I hope to see you all on the court next year.

To all students and their families, I wish you a very Merry Christmas and hope
that your break is full of fun and laughter. Thank you for your support in 2010
and God Bless.

Ms Melanie Clarke
