Last Friday the annual sports assembly was held in the gym to recognise the achievements and efforts of the CCC students over the course of the year. Students have participated in a range of sporting endeavours this year in a variety of competition formats including vista weekly sport, day carnivals and knockout sport. In total, there have 556 student participations in sport this year from 289 individual students throughout the college from R-12. This is a great representation of the positive impact sport is having across the school, helping to assist the physical and mental well-being of students, sportsmanship, competitiveness, and the development of stronger relationships with fellow students and teammates.
For each sport and team that was represented throughout the year, the coach in charge selected a medal recipient based on the values demonstrated throughout the competition that they felt best represented the team overall. Students who had represented the state throughout the year were also recognised for their outstanding achievements. The other major individual awards on the day were the presentation of the prestigious sportsperson of the year award, highlighting outstanding involvement, service and representation of CCC in interschool sport. This award was presented to a male and female in each area of the school – junior, middle and senior.
The sportsperson of the year recipients were:-
Junior - Dash Moore and Emma Marzano
Middle - Tom Carroll and Furtuna Legesse
Senior – Cameron Smith and Gul Zehra
Other significant awards presented at the assembly were for sports day held at the start of the year, and the Pat O’Brien shield, which is a competition held between year 11 and 12 students, established to continue the competitive spirit and challenge for students in senior years. Pat O’Brien was the Health and PE Coordinator for over 15 years at CCC, retiring in 2011.
Sports day winner – Green (1207 points).
Other placings – Blue (989 points), Red (887 points), Yellow (816 points).
Pat O’Brien shield winner – Year 12s
The assembly gave students the chance to thank staff for their efforts and contributions to the school sporting life throughout the year. A number of staff took on the roles of managing, coaching and transporting students to and from competitions.
We again thank the efforts of students and teachers alike for their contributions throughout the year, and look to build on this momentum during term 4 and into 2019!
Over the course of the year a number of Charles Campbell students have excelled at their chosen sports outside of school, resulting in representation for the state. This is a culmination of dedication, persistence and talent that has allowed these students to compete against some of the best individuals in their age group and in their chosen competitions. We hope that these students can continue to excel in their chosen sport fields and provide a positive role model for other students within the school community.

Amer recently completed a five day camp in Melbourne as part of the Bachar Houli Football Academy. The Bachar Houli Academy takes the best Muslim Australian Rules football players in the country aged 18 and under on an all-expenses paid camp to Melbourne to undertake training, team and leadership development, recognition around their religion, and play a match against the Rookie Me Academy in Melbourne. Of the 26 footballers selected for the camp, Amer was the only player to come from South Australia having been chosen on his performances playing for Norwood football club. The experience was a one of a kind, with training sessions taking place at Richmond and Essendon Football Club’s headquarters, as well as a boot camp on the Peninsula, and meeting a variety of AFL players.
Levi was a participant for SA in the 12 and under SAPSASA Rugby tournament held in Victoria Park, SA. The competition took place over 5 days with SA experiencing some tough matches against some of the more rugby dominant states such as Queensland and New South Wales. Levi, who is originally from Queensland, was able to play against some of his old school friends and thoroughly enjoyed his experience in the competition.
Back in January this year, Diana was selected as one of four girls for South Australia to go to Melbourne and play the 2018 Talent 10’s National Carnival against girls from the other states and territories across Australia. The carnival took place at Melbourne Park, where the Australian Open is held, and consisted of 14 matches in total (7 singles, 7 doubles) over the week. Diana excelled in her match play, taking out 5 of her singles matches and winning all of her doubles to win the final and cap off a very exciting week. Being around Melbourne Park Diana was able to meet a host of Australian tennis stars, watch tennis players warming up for their Australia Open matches as part of the Australian Open experience, and visit the various courts and arenas. A great experience overall that Diana is looking forward to attending again next year!
At the beginning of the year, the Coles Sport for Schools promotion was opened up to schools as a National initiative to help promote health and well-being and encourage physical activity for school kids. Coles partnership with RHSports has seen the contribution of millions of dollars of sports equipment to thousands of schools around the country. We set up collection boxes and received overwhelming support from parents, friends and the community alike. The collection period took place over a couple of months resulting in the contribution of 22,850 vouchers! The sporting equipment available ranged in its cost of vouchers depending on the item, with the input of the PE staff to address areas of need for school sport that would help benefit the greatest number of students.
The equipment includes:
We look forward to our students being able to utilise this to help assist their health, well-being and involvement in sport. The Coles Sport for Schools is a great program and with your help we look forward to collecting more vouchers and equipment in 2019!
