Congratulations to Staff Spartan of the Week Andy Wrigley and Daneale Scandrett for their dedication and commitment to coaching practise and engagement at Friday afternoon Sport. Both Andy and Daneale constantly display the Spartan Spirit.
Every Friday after school Year 2 students Evie-May Coates and Zhander Griffiths make their way to Robina to train in the Gold Coast United Talent Centre. The Talent Centre is a programme supporting the development of boys and girls between seven through to 13 years old. United works in collaboration with clubs in the local area in the aim of creating world-class environments for children to enjoy the game and develop their football abilities. At all times their centres are designed, not to take children away from their own club football, but as an extra session under their expert coaches.
Congratulations to Evie-May and Zhander who have taken the step up! These young players have benefited a lot from the additional training.
