These programmes successfully fostered a sense of belonging and increasing engagement in physical activity with regular events.

We would like to thank CUBO and their judging panel for their recognition - we are incredibly proud of these achievements and are honoured. This award is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff, students and volunteers who support everything that we do. We look forward to continuing to develop our offering to engage all students on our campuses with positive sporting experiences.
