Celebrating 160 years of Academy Sporting history


A formal breakfast was hosted by the 2017 Student Sports Leaders on May 25 and attended by 200 people (students, staff, coaches and representatives from 17 sporting organisations).

Keynote Speaker, dual Paralympian Hannah Macdougall, challenged the girls to be all that they can be and not to be deterred by the difficulties or obstacles that life presents.

The students had the unique opportunity to meet some inspirational women involved in the sports industry at all levels – as an elite player, official, administrator, media person, coach or manager – to demonstrate the variety of ways to be involved in sport and sporting industries post-school.
