Coach Daniel Huang said that while being pleased at his team’s cup win, he believed their behaviour both on and off the field throughout the season provided a greater testimony to the soccer community.
‘One of the most important things at FCC is we teach students to demonstrate certain values which is especially crucial in team sport,’ Mr Huang said.
He said those values included putting the team before self, encouraging team members and exemplary conduct by respecting authority even though the decision may not go their way.
‘I believe that progressing to the final and having a great season is a good demonstration to others that such a world view is better than a winning-at-all-costs mentality,’ he said.
Principal Andrew Newhouse said this world view was essential for students to succeed at school and in their careers.
‘These values learnt through sport build upon the ethos of the college and it is these values students will be able to call upon in the future beyond school and playing sport,’ he said.
