On Friday 14 September 2018, we had the opportunity
as a College to commemorate and celebrate the Winter Co-Curricular Season for 2018. This annual ceremony
provides recognition for those students deemed as having given an outstanding contribution to their sporting
team as either a player or leader. Whilst this occasion was incredibly gratifying for the award
recipients, I congratulated the involvement of every student throughout the Winter Season. All students
are to be commended in an equally important manner.
Rostrevor College has a notoriously rich
and historical sporting culture laden with success, the continuation of which is only made possible by
the students who consistently participate in their respective teams. Every student should be immensely
proud of their efforts to sacrifice their personal time to engage with the Co-Curricular Program and I'm
confident they would have received an abundance of positive outcomes through their association.
Furthermore, it would be remiss of me to ignore the significant impact that all Coaches, Team Managers,
Supporters and Volunteers provide in both the team and individual success celebrated on Friday. It's very
difficult to put into words the level of appreciation from myself and everyone who supports and encourages
sporting programs at Rostrevor College. If there are any friends, parents/caregivers or old-scholars who
have a passion for sport and feel they could contribute to maintaining the high standards evident, then
please communicate these with me.
Finally, I would like to congratulate the Coaches, Managers,
Senior Sporting Captains, Prefects and Musicians who spoke and performed at the assembly. Their ability
to capture the attention of the audience and effectively engage listeners was tremendous and certainly
added to the atmosphere within Purton Hall. The quality of speeches was remarkable, as were the musical
performances on the day. It was yet another noteworthy reminder of the vast variety of talent present
within the boundaries of Rostrevor College.
