Kerrie Bradley, Sports coordinator, Callaghan College, Waratah Technology Campus
Kerrie Bradley has built strong links with Sports Australia to introduce new ways to improve physical activity programs and practices at Callaghan College. Serving as a role model for her students by staying fit and encouraging good, healthy eating habits, Bradley imparts knowledge and advice to her peers and students in a way that helps them feel a sense of achievement. Her enthusiasm and encouragement have had a noticeable impact on school athletics and swimming carnivals, as well as specific sports events. Student numbers have risen, and their hunger to compete and win is much stronger; several of Bradley’s students have competed at the international level. In addition, by staying in contact with student carers, Bradley has been able to receive and implement feedback.
