Academy and BMX athlete of the year, Rory Southwell

NSW Government Parliamentary Reception to recognise the achievements of NSW Regional Academies of Sport.
A number of Academy Board Members including Chairperson Peter Campbell were also on hand to represent
our Academy. And it was exceptionally pleasing to see the Academy's Platinum Partner SOUTH32 ably represented
by Amanda Blunt.
The Speaker of the House. The Hon. Jonathon O'Dea MP hosted an exemplary group of aspiring athletes
and their families in a 'full house' recognition reception. The NSW Government through its Office of Sport
is the Principal Partner of Regional Academies right across the state. And the Acting Minister for Sport
The Hon. Dr. Geoffrey Lee spoke glowingly regarding the work of Regional Academies.
And it was terrific
for Rory and Madelyn to view firsthand, how highly young leaders like them, are valued by our Members
of Parliament and community leaders.

was again a huge success. We love to celebrate achievement at SWSAS, and this evening was exactly that.
A celebration of all aspects of our sporting community. An Academy trophy is hard to come by. And it is
a very proud moment for athletes and their families, for an athlete to be recognised this way.
