Sporting success extends beyond record SEASAC results

2016/2017 has been a very successful year in sport, with an impressive 19 SEASAC Championship trophies across the College. This success is the cumulative effect of several years of sports development, not just a single season. We strive for a sporting culture in which learning from failure as well as success is central. Students take responsibility for their learning in sport, both individually and as teams. They take an active part in answering “How do we continually improve?”, and teams work toward building resilience and mastery where high performance becomes a habit.

While this year’s record results provide one way to quantify sporting success, it is certainly not the only measure we use. East athletes Hugh Goovaerts (Rugby) and Lachlan Elliott (Swimming) each received the Sportsmanship Award at the SEASAC championships for outstanding contributions to fairplay. Hundreds of student athletes gain from personal development, friendship and enjoyment, which offer a range of success stories. Many students will have fond memories of championship wins this year, but far more will recall other highlights and reflect back on their own success and development. Going forward, we will keep asking “How do we continually improve?” across all sports and measure successes both small and large.
