Emmanuel has experienced one of the most remarkable sporting weeks in the school’s sporting history with 19 Emmanuel students claiming podium finishes at either the Queensland Triathlon, Athletics or State Nippers Championships.
It was an unprecedented Gold rush, with students winning 19 Gold Medals (12 individual and 7 team) along with another 10 Silver and Bronze. At assembly last Tuesday, we acknowledged 9 new State Champions, along with another 10 students who won either relay Gold or individual Silver and Bronze.
It wouldn’t matter what size school you attend, weeks such as that are unprecedented and we congratulate our students for not just their endeavour, but their excellence! What an inspiration to our younger students. I hope you enjoy the list below as our newsletter this week pays tribute to the talent currently in our Senior School.
A special mention to our Head Athletics Coach, Mr David Reid, who coaches 10 of the students named below. His athletes returned 7 Golds and 3 Silvers in individual events.
