Principal’s Address

Who are, who are, who are we

We are, we are SEC!

On Tuesday at Assembly we launched our participation in SECA (South East Colleges Association). I shared with the students that this has been years in the making:

2016 Sport Survey – students; staff; parents
2017 identifying the right association and other Colleges
2018 planning and development

The mighty St Eugene Spirits will compete in the first official event for 2019, the SECA Swimming Carnival, on Wednesday 13 March at the Sleeman Sports & Aquatic Centre, Chandler. We have selected a 44 strong St Eugene Swim Team and are looking forward to cheering for them loudly on this historic occasion. Through our participation in the SECA we will achieve: Learning and Growth through sport and compe-tition; Quality competition; and College pride. I spoke with the students about the rewards that come with effort, training, practice and com-mitment to the team—particularly the enjoyment of representing your College with pride. We are all aware that participation in inter-school competition leads to higher standards of achievement; encourages physical activity; builds discipline; Learning to win with humility and to deal with the disappointment of defeat; and builds connection, friendship and teamwork. All students from Yr 7 –12 have nominated to trial for teams for the first SECA season which begins in Term 2. I am looking forward to joining our Swimmers and the St Eugene Cheer Squad next week at Chandler.​
