National Christian Schools Games 2015

“Being a part of the WACSSA team was a great experience. The overall event was Christ-centred and was filled with great competition and friendly rivalry. We did not only grow closer to our teammates, we grew closer to God. Although we were the smallest state, all the competitors strived to do their best. It was great to watch everyone bring glory to God through sport.” – Gloria Kennedy

 

National GamesWestern Australia sent a representative WA team to the second National Christian School Games which were held 18-22 May on the Gold Coast. Christian students from all over Australia competed against one another in athletics, basketball, soccer, swimming and tennis.
Rehoboth Christian College was featured strongly, with eleven of its students being part of the sixty member strong team (the smallest state at the games). Two of its staff were also selected as team officials.

Some of the highlights for Rehoboth students included:

  • Gloria Kennedy receiving the silver medal for the 50m breast stroke and being selected the girls’ captain.
  • Jairus Magsaysay taking part in swimming and also filling in a lot of gaps during the Athletics competition.
  • Rochelle Hondema being selected as the MVP in the Victoria girls’ soccer team (as WA didn’t have sufficient girls to make up its own team, Rochelle was selected to form part of the Victorian team).
  • Carlo Garcia and Matvey Solovev also had some outstanding moments in the basketball tournament.
  • Mr de Bruyn and I also thoroughly enjoyed being coaches and team managers on this trip.

All in all, it was a great experience for our students, and one of those rare opportunities to represent our State.
