Benn Harradine was due to be our guest speaker, however, recently sustained a knee/thigh injury at the recent World Championships and has been undergoing treatment in Germany. The treatment is taking longer than planned and indicated he may not be available to be our Guest Speaker. A brief phone call to a friend of Ormiston College (well, he is married to an Old Collegian), Brisbane Lions ace Dan Rich, made my day with his willingness to be the Guest Speaker at the Sports Awards Night.

There will be some slideshows played for each trimester to sport to some live music played by students with the support of guest musician, Andy Schrav (
