In the past two weeks, it has been very heartening to receive two unsolicited emails, complimenting the quality of sportsmanship displayed by members of both our Open Boys and Open Girls Soccer teams. It is one thing to play well, but it is an honour to be respected by opposition players and coaches. It is also pleasing that the comments refer to the students who are our senior leaders in the school. Well done students!
These were the quotes:
“This afternoon I refereed the Open A Boys Soccer between SSC and Emmanuel. I just wanted to let you know how well the Emmanuel boys played and the excellent sportsmanship they displayed. They played hard and put in a very polished performance, but it was the fact they played ‘in the right spirit’ that impressed me.” Match referee
“It was great that a couple of my girls who have never played had a great time and are keen to play soccer now. A lot of that is down to the sportsmanship of your team which made it a fun and challenging experience, please thank them for me.” Visiting coach
