Term 4 is always an exciting time of year when we recognise and acknowledge the many student achievements in sport at Genesis. I believe it is also an important time for students to reflect on the many people who have had a positive impact on their success whether it be their parents, grandparents or family friends who drive them to their trainings and games; or Genesis staff and club coaches who freely give their time to support, mentor and encourage them. A concept I have been sharing with the students is to be thankful and grateful for the significant adults in their lives and to take the time to thank them personally and to show them their appreciation.
To all families, Genesis staff and club coaches, thank you for all that you do to support our students in their endeavours.
