Celebration of SportDate Posted: 20/06/2013 | Posted In: Latest news
Students, coaches, staff, friends and family gathered at QE to celebrate the College’s outstanding success in sport over the last year. The annual Sports Awards Ceremony was a fitting tribute to the success of so many individuals, teams and volunteers who selflessly give up their time to inspire others and help them get involved in sport.
The Awards were presented by former QE student and current USA University Football Scholar, Andrew Kelly who is studying Business Studies at St Peter’s University in New York. Andrew is a role model for students as he highlights how QE can be a springboard to propel individuals into sport and go on to achieve great things.
Paul Carroll, Sport Development Co-ordinator at QE, said:
“The evening was a complete success and thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended. A large number of our students participate in a wide range of sports at all levels, and I am extremely proud of their achievements. I was delighted that Andrew Kelly was able to present the awards as he is an inspiration to others. ”
For their all-round sporting prowess, Dan Wood and Helen Murray were named Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year. Other key awards were presented to Alex Sayer for her vast contribution to sport in the community, and to Will Crossen for service to sport.
