Queen Anne’s Sports Award Evening
Thursday 2nd May 2019
Queen Anne’s annual Sports Award Evening took place on Saturday 27 April, with over 100 girls and parents attending.
Mrs Burley praised their commitment to their chosen sports, their achievements and their competitive spirit. She thanked them for their “fantastic contribution to the sporting life of this school”.
The parents also were applauded for their loyal support at matches, regardless of the weather, with two parents receiving special awards for sports photography and grass roots lacrosse development.
The guest speaker, Joe Roebuck talked of his journey from school swimmer to the dizzy heights of Olympic competition.
The girls were particularly impressed with how he dealt with missing the selection for the Bejing Olympics by ¼ of a second; he did not give up on his dream, simply refocused, continued working hard and then went on to Commonwealth and European success, before finally getting his Olympic debut at the home Olympics in 2012.
