The Collingwood Awards ceremony was held yesterday and all the school's major awards were given out at that event. This included the Ellis Shield for the Top Male and Female Athletes in Grade 8/9 and the Pedca Award for the Top Male and Female Athletes in Grade 12.
Brek Ball and Gabriela Dorey won the Ellis Shield. Brek played on four different teams this year and was a key member of all four teams. Gigi played field hockey, basketball and mountain biked as well.
The Pedca Award recipients were Nic Wrixon and Mo Kelly. Nic was a star member of the senior basketball team for three years and also played soccer. Mo was a star for the field hockey, basketball and netball teams and also ran track for four years.
Not surprisingly Gigi, Brek, Mo and Nic all share the same traits - hard-working, tenacious, humble and always led through example rather than words. Congratulations to these four amazing student-athletes.
