2017 has been a very successful year for the PE department at Notre Dame, with ‘Team ND’ sports teams playing (and winning!) a huge number of matches. Students at Notre Dame have the opportunity to play basketball, football, volleyball, netball and rugby throughout the year. ‘Team ND’ also has a unique partnership with Leeds Beckett University, which means that specialist coaches from their highly successful sports department come to Notre Dame to train our students in the available sports.
To celebrate an extremely successful year, an awards ceremony was held last week in order to commemorate some brilliant performances by our students. Here are the awards presented to our fabulous students:
- Basketball player of the year – Precious-Patrick Onyia
- Football Academy player of the year – Bailey Collington
- Football player of the year – Billy Dawson
- Outstanding Sportspersons of the year – Mikolaj Oledski and Vassilissa Zukova

- Rugby player of the year – Jo Denver Gamayon
- Team ND Activators Awards – Jackson Bradley, Myles Smith and Nathan Wyspianski
- Coach of the Year – Nathan Wyspianski

A very special well done to all of our award winners!
