Sports Awards 2013

It was a great pleasure to complete the academic year with the whole school celebrating our Sports Awards and House Competitions in the sports hall on the last day of term. 

During the ceremony we had a chance to remind ourselves of all the wonderful opportunities that take place over a very busy year at St Thomas Aquinas school.

We started the ceremony with a superb jubilee dance from our outstanding senior dancers and then our P.E students spoke about a range of sporting highlights and progress over the year. Our Year 7 -11 students also demonstrated why they are such exceptional dancers by performing outstandingly in front of an enthralled audience.

To round off the ceremony Mr Smyllie announced Teresa House as Sports Day Winners and more importantly Romero House who won the House Cup for the year. Well done Romero House!

We would like to thank the following students who spoke during the ceremony. Thanks go to Olivia Young, Merlin Valiyaparambil, Sean Fahy, Shaun Hunter, Rusarn Peters and Ella Stephenson, all of whom spoke eloquently about the many successes achieved throughout the year.
