Dr Challoner’s Celebration of Sport Evening 2016
As sponsors of the cricket team at the Dr Challoner’s Grammar School, we were invited to attend the 2nd annual ‘Celebration of Sports’ on Thursday 7 July 2016 – As proud sponsors, how could we not accept the invitation?!
The night was a celebration of the boys commitment and achievement throughout all aspects of sport and a chance to reward those who have consistently demonstrated the qualities that Challoner’s strives to develop.
In light of celebrating sporting achievements, Dr Challoner’s welcomed professional footballer, John Mousinho, as guest speaker.
John is a formal student of Dr Challoner’s and was described as an “outstanding sportsman” by the P.E. teachers as he captained the school’s 1st XI football team and is now captain for championship side, Burton Albion Football Club.
Director, Jenny Russell, was called upon to present the ‘Lennons’ Cup for Cricket. Both Jenny and Marketing Assistant, Katrina Caraska, who attended the event on behalf of the firm reported that the evening was thoroughly enjoyable.
“It was amazing to hear how the sports department has developed over the years and the facilities they now have to offer the students. As someone who is heavily involved in youth sport out of the office, it is always a joy to be able to recognise the efforts the children put in and to celebrate on a great year of achievement whether it is one particular highlight or the year as a whole!” – Katrina Caraska
We would like to wish Dr Challoner’s the best of luck for next year and we look forward to returning to attend the Celebration of Sport ceremony.
