CHAC was announced the Champion School in no less than four categories, namely Cross Country, Girls’ Volleyball, Boys’ Football (shared) and overall Trimester 3 Champions. Equally note-worthy were third positions on the ladders notched up for Girls’ Touch Football and Boys’ Basketball.
In addition, CHAC teams won seven Premiership titles and the Year 7 Girls’ Volleyball team won Gold at the Junior Schools Volleyball Cup. The Sports Captains for 2017 – Flynn Holley and Francesca Symmons-Buchanan attribute the success in part to the One College, One Campus, One Community philosophy.
The attitude, commitment and sportsmanship exhibited by our students throughout the sporting calendar allowed us to maintain
our competitive edge.
- Mark Spindler, Director of Sport
‘Many of the younger grades enjoyed the lunchtime grades that were organised in order to bring year levels and fellow peers together. There was also an extremely large turnout to teachers versus students’ games, which created an enjoyable and humorous atmosphere among students and staff. ‘We saw an increase in supporters at weekend games and our 1st teams on the side lines encouraging the younger teams. The support shown from the older students was something we were excited
to see grow as it had an extremely positive impact on sporting results throughout the year.’
According to Mark Spindler, Director of Sport, ‘CHAC’s success this year was not achieved through ability alone; the attitude, commitment and sportsmanship exhibited by our students throughout the sporting calendar allowed us to maintain
our competitive edge and achieve the results we have. Due to this determination, CHAC has become a leading sporting College in TAS’.
