School sports coordinator praised

Henry Kendall High School teacher, Ms Julie Starkey has been praised by principal Mr Andrew Backhouse for her six-year stint as the school’s sports coordinator.

“With Ms Starkey taking on the role of Year 7 Adviser next year, Mr Rod Pratt is taking over the role of sports coordinator,” Mr Backhouse said. “This is an opportune time to recognise the contribution to school sport that Julie has made over the past six years as sports coordinator,” he said.

“It is a diverse and demanding role involving weekly coordination of resources, venues, students and staff as well as meeting all risk assessment, financial, medical and logistic challenges. “On top of this is the complexity of coordinating school and zone carnivals.

“Ms Starkey has taken on these challenges in a manner that our school has maintained was a fantastic, diverse and well-managed sporting program.” Mr Backhouse said Mr Pratt brings a wealth of experience to the job that will ensure the high quality of sport provision at the school will continue to flourish.
