Mandurah Catholic College director of sport Nick Jenkins had his outstanding contribution to the development of school sport recognised when he presented with an Associated and Catholic Colleges’ (ACC) recognition award in November.
Jenkins was applauded for the many initiatives he introduced to the sports program at MCC, in particular the implementation of the Inclusive Sports program.
Receiving the award at an annual presentations breakfast, Jenkins was praised for being a proven leader and mentor for all new members of the ACC’s sport management committee.
MCC principal Andrew Watson, who attended the breakfast with Jenkins, said the honour of receiving such recognition was especially significant given the award is not necessarily presented annually due to the standard of the criteria.
“Nick was recognised as an outstanding leader whose vision for sport has not only shaped Mandurah Catholic College’s identity and success in sport but the whole association,” he said.
“Nick embodies the motto ‘sport played in the right spirit’ and his significant professional achievements listed at the breakfast are testament to his passionate commitment to the healthy development of MCC students.”
The ACC, established in 1937, is a peak independent secondary schools sports association that provides sport in the right spirit to more than 60 schools throughout Western Australia.
