Sydney Catholic Schools (SCS) will recognise its high-achieving 2021 student athletes during a Primary Sports Awards ceremony on Friday, 3 December. 

The ceremony will be streamed live on Sydney Catholic Schools’ Facebook page at 9am and will also be available for later viewing on the SCS website and YouTube channel

More than 130 students will be congratulated for their sporting achievements during the ceremony, with a special focus on seven rising stars who will receive a sports medallion for demonstrating a remarkable level of representation in their chosen sport. 

The awards will also feature guest appearances from Kim Green, former Australian netballer and St Patrick’s College Sutherland alumna, as well as Michael Ennis, former NSW rugby league star and current Fox Sports presenter. 

Damien Kerr, Manager: Pre to Post Sport at SCS, said the awards will be a great opportunity to highlight the hard work and talent of students this year. 

“Despite an interrupted year due to COVID-19, our students have continued to display a remarkable level of dedication in all sports, at all levels,” Mr Kerr said. 

“We’re excited about being able to celebrate these achievements and to also help inspire our students to keep striving for bigger and better things.”

Dr Kate O’Brien, Director: Education and Research at SCS, said the awards are also a chance to thank the large number of people in our school communities that have contributed to the success of our sporting programs.

“In what has been a challenging year for sport in our schools, we truly appreciate the parents, school and community staff who work tirelessly to support our athletes to excel,” Dr O’Brien said. 

“It really is a team effort and so we are grateful for the platform they provide for our students to excel.”
