Another Amazing Year for
What a sensational year the Academy has had, more additional sports; with more to commence
this month and in the New Year!! It sounds like a re-run of 2015 and 2014, but it is true. We are the
fastest growing Academy in NSW by a very long way.
Highlights of the year included being awarded
the Liverpool City 'Australia Day Medal' for Sport and a prized 'National Volunteer Award'.
But, the best awards of all have come from unsolicited letters and emails from the parents and families
of our athletes; stating how pleased they are with the Academy programs and what an effect they have had
on their child's attitude, health and in a number of specific cases school development.
an enormous thank-you and congratulations must go to all of the Academy's 70 plus volunteer staff members,
for a job well done.
Enjoy our newsletter snap-shot of what's happening at SWSAS and also our
website and Facebook articles. If you have a great story to tell please let us know and that goes for
our wonderful sponsors also.
We will be having a very 'short - short' break over the Christmas
and New Year period and we wish 'one and all' a great festive season.
Thank you for your support
