Empowering student-athletes to excel on and off the field

An impressive group of guest speakers provided High Performance Program students at St Paul’s Anglican Grammar School with newfound insight into the life of a professional athlete and reiterated the importance of maintaining their health and wellbeing in their sporting endeavours.

Students were enlightened by four amazing speakers that opened a window into the world of professional sport. Ali Miles, Head Dietician at North Melbourne Football Club and dietician for the Australian Winter Olympic Team highlighted the dangers of under-fuelling for teenage athletes. Laura Hingston, an Australian Diving Champion, engaged the students with her stories and messages about resilience in sport, goal setting and finding a healthy balance between life and sport. World Champion Moguls Skier and four-time Winter Olympic Games athlete, Britt Cox, shared insights into finding your ‘Why’ in sport. To finish, students had a captivating session with former Australian Netball Captain and AFLW player Sharni Norder nee Layton who delved into inspiring and motivating the student-athletes to pursue their potential.

The Head of the High Performance Program, Scott Armour, believes the students benefited immensely by hearing real-life stories from professional athletes and professionals working in the sport industry. “The High Performance Seminar was an outstanding success”, he remarked. “Our students were so fortunate to be able to learn from and be motivated by a sports industry expert, an Australian Champion, a World Champion and a Commonwealth Games Gold Medallist/Dual Sport Champion. The messages our students received will assist them in becoming better athletes and also being able to balance their sport commitments with their schooling.”

Students can personalise their educational experience with the High Performance Program which caters to secondary students who are competing at an advanced level in their chosen sport. Teachers provide additional guidance and flexibility, ensuring that students can thrive by balancing their studies and sporting commitments.
