Welcome to the first edition of Sport news for the year. There are many exciting things happening at Genesis in the world of sport. The Middle School Students were blessed to hear from Mr Brendan Keogh, Director of Genesis Sport, at the Leadership Induction Service. Mr Keogh shared his journey as the Australian Paralympics Head Swimming Coach and in his presentation he challenged the students with the concept that there is no “I” in team but instead they have teammates.
As we journey through 2020 in sport as a College and celebrate the many achievements of our talented students, I am encouraged by the concept that as a team – where there is encouragement, support and kindness towards one another – there is unity.
Congratulations to all the students involved with the College carnival and in particular, I would like to pay tribute to the House Captains for their leadership, passion and encouragement displayed towards the students in their Houses.
Well done to Lucy Winn and Riley Bushell who were named as the 2020 Genesis Swimming Captains.
Congratulation to Gilead who had their first win at a Swimming Carnival since 2013!
