ACC 'A' Division Athletics Carnival

Congratulations to all student athletes & coaches who were involved in the ACC ‘A’ Division Athletics Carnival in Week 9 of Term 3. I am immensely proud of the School’s outstanding result of placing 2nd Overall, along with 2nd Junior Girls, 2nd Senior Boys, 2nd Overall Girls & 2nd Overall Boys. It was notable that we beat the single gender schools as well as all the co-educational schools which have significantly higher student populations.

The Squad showed great persistence & resilience all day, continually turning thirds into seconds & fourths into thirds. Such efforts were critical to our success. I can confidently say that our Athletics Squad values of ‘Dedication, Hardwork & Ambition’ were clearly evident with notable sportsmanship exhibited amongst our competitors!

All Squad members displayed great endeavour. Being by far the smallest school population in this Division showing we are a truly are a force to be reckoned with as was also shown across the consistency of our across age category & gender results!

The philosophy that has been reiterated to students is that “a champion team will always beat a team of individual champions” & this was highlighted at the ACC Athletics Squad briefing, photograph & BBQ the day before ‘A’ Division Carnival.

For most of the day the School battled for first position with Sacred Heart College making it one of the closest contests in recent years.

When the ‘Virtual Carnival’ results are released which combine the results of over 85 ACC Schools, representing over 50,000 students, I am hopeful that the School will rank amongst the Top 3 Co-Educational Schools in Perth for Athletics with a number of students in contention for Sports Colours, Sports Honours, ACC Letters, or recommendation to compete at the WA All Schools Athletics Championships in Term 4 for their best event/s.

Every single student involved, whether they competed in one or five individual events or were a  member of a relay team or were a travelling reserve who was called upon or who were  acting as a Student Marshall or Sports Leader were integral parts of the ACC Athletics Squad & shared equal importance in the Squad’s success!
