Kaitlin awarded twice for her efforts
Congratulations to Ex-Student Kaitlin Nobbs (Class of 2015) who has recently received two awards for her outstanding sporting achievements on the hockey field.
Kaitlin was awarded the Sportsperson of the Year, by the Mayor of Burwood Council, Cr John Faker, at the Australia Day Awards that were held in January.
Kaitlin also received the 2015 Jeanette Buckham Award for Outstanding Individual Sportswoman of the Year by the CISNSW. The award recognises the outstanding sporting achievements, exceptional commitment and dedication of students and staff involved in CIS Sports and celebrates the sporting achievements of individual students from independent schools. The awards ceremony was held on Friday 19 February, at the Waterview Restaurant, Bicentennial Park in Sydney Olympic Park.
Kaitlin is now based in Perth training with the Hockeyroos and studying nursing part-time at Curtin University. Whilst Kaitlin is the youngest member of the Hockeyroos squad, and only 16 players out of 30 will go to the Rio Olympics, it is a wonderful experience for her to be actively involved in all of the Olympic preparations.
