Celebrating Sporting Achievements

Duncraig celebrated student sports achievements today in the gym.

Principal Donella Beare and guest speaker Brad Ness presented awards, colours and certificates.

The students enjoyed the talk by Paralympic Brad Ness.

Brad was a sports-mad teenager who excelled in swimming, tennis, hurdles and his favourite code, AFL. As a teenager, he worked as a deckhand aboard a high-speed ferry between Rottnest Island and Fremantle, before losing his leg when he was 18.  Australia chose Brad to be the flag bearer for the 2016 Rio Paralympics opening ceremony. Brad made his Paralympic debut at Sydney 2000 as the Rollers missed the medals, but has been part of remarkable success with the team ever since. A silver medal at Athens 2004 was followed by gold in Beijing four years later, with London 2012 bringing about another silver.

Mr Titlestad, Head of Secondary, closed the assembly with a prayer.

Guests, awardees and parents were then invited to the Community Room for a morning tea.
