NSW Swifts’ midcourter Maddy Proud was on hand to present 30 young athletes with medals at the 18th annual Sydney Archdiocesan Primary School Sports Awards. Among the recipients was Mater Dei Catholic Primary School Blakehurst Year 6 student, Eadie.
The star netballer and children’s author acknowledged the students from a pool of 116 Sydney Catholic primary schools who have excelled at sports during the school year at a ceremony held at St Mary Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School Hurstville on 5 December.
To receive an award, students must have represented the Sydney Archdiocese in a NSW Catholic Primary Schools (NSWCPS) MacKillop team or NSW Primary Schools Sports Association (NSWPSSA) State team and demonstrated a high level of sporting achievement in their schools.
The awards are a wonderful occasion to recognise and celebrate the outstanding sporting achievements of our students before their peers and family.”
