To celebrate the sporting achievements of TGS students, an annual Sports Awards Assembly is held each year. This year the Sports Awards Assembly will be on 13 September, 2011.
The following awards may be presented:
For students from years 4 – 12 who compete for the School in Swimming, Cross-Country and Athletics. Reserves who do not compete, do not qualify.
Pierre De Coubertin Award
This award is made by the Australian Olympic council to promote the Olympic ideals throughout the community. The recipient is selected from Year 12 Physical Education students who have best met the representation and participation criteria, and displayed attributes most consistent with the Olympic movement.
State and National Representative Medallions
Students who gain selection in a state or National team in their chosen sport will receive the appropriate medallion. This applies to both School and Club level sports.
Most Valuable Player (MVP)
These students are not necessarily the best-performing player or team member but the student regarded as the most positive and consistent with their attitude and performance at both games and training.
Junior School students are recognised with a “merit”, “striving” and “coaches” certificate at their Sports Assembly.
North Ward Interschool Sport Most Valuable Players will be presented at the end of each term, whilst Club sport MVPs will be presented at their respective presentation dinners.
Teams of the Year (North Ward only)
The two categories presented are Boys and Girls. Team of the Year will be decided by considering the competition path, level of achievement and the team identity established through commitment to the School and fellow team-mates both on and off the field.
The Principal reserves the right not to present these awards in any given year should the quality of the team achievement not reflect the status of the award.
Junior, Middle and Senior School Sportsman and Sportswoman (Years 5 – 12)
The award winner is considered an exemplary ambassador of the School. Whilst the depth and variety of sports participated in is considered, the main focus is on the level of achievement. In judging the level of achievement, the championship or representative level is considered in combination with the profile of the sport within the community.
Principal’s Male and Female All-Rounder (North Ward)
The award winner is considered an exemplary ambassador of the School. The main focus is on the quality and quantity of sports participated in for the School and within the community.
For all Sportsman, Sportswoman and All-Rounder awards, the Director of Sport is responsible for recommending award winners to the Principal for final ratification.
