At the end of each year one of the monthly award winners is then crowned as our Sportsperson of the Year at the Talented Sports Program Awards Night. 

The awards are sponsored this year by Body Sciencewho will provide gift vouchers to our monthly winners and a major prize for the eventual Sportsperson of the Year. Thanks to Body Science (BSc) for their generous support of our students and our school.
