Sports Presentation Evening
On Wednesday 13th July our annual Sports Presentation Evening was held at The Axholme Academy. There were 180 people packed into the main school hall in order to celebrate the sporting successes of both teams and individuals during the academic year 2015-16.
We were delighted to welcome back former student and professional footballer Liam Hughes as our special guest for the evening and he distributed the prizes out to our students. Liam was also interviewed on stage by Mr Beesley and this involved questions such as, what is it like to score at Wembley as-well as what advice do you give to our aspiring athletes?
The evening lasted nearly 2 hours as there was so much success to celebrate this year including many team top 3 finishes in a whole range of sports. There were also individual awards for Sports Boy and Girl Player of the Year in years 7-11 and Most Improved Player Boy and Girl in years 7-10.
The finale of the evening was the Outstanding Contribution to Sport award and this was presented to Georgia Green for 5 years of service to The Axholme Academy in terms of sports teams, leadership, organising and commitment to both lessons and extra-curricular activities. Not only does Georgia show commitment but she is also extremely talented and has many successes in a whole range of sports. She was a very deserving winner of this prestigious award.
A great night was had by all and we very much look forward to all the sporting competitions and achievements that 2016-17 will bring.
Mr L. Beesley
