2019 Co-Curricular Assembly
Written on the 22 November 2019
The Summer Program allows for students to represent Rostrevor across a variety of activities including Athletics, Badminton, Basketball, Cricket, Handball, Music, Pedal Prix, Rock & Water, Swimming, Tennis and Water Polo.
The reports delivered by students were presented with enthusiasm, each sharing the highlights of their respective group/team, their successes and their participation. The music and drama performances complemented the morning assembly and reminded us of the importance of the performing arts, particularly in an all-boys environment.
Co-curricular offers our young men the opportunity to function as part of a team, learning the importance of all members contributing to a group performance. No matter what the activity, the measure of success is intangible; it includes many dimensions which may vary for each participant. Success is winning, improving performance, learning a new skill, camaraderie, learning to share, recognising the importance of reliability, developing communication skills, to name just some. It reminds us that success is available to all who participate.
It is important that we not only congratulate those who won awards but also those who willingly participated in these activities, to all parents who helped with coaching, transport and assisting on match days, and to our staff for their continued involvement in this essential dimension of our College life. Without this combined effort, it would not be possible.
