As in previous years, we are looking to acknowledge the sporting achievements of a diverse range of students from across all areas of the city and welcome your nominations for a variety of awards. A number of the awards given are pre-determined through the individual Association Secretaries. However, the SFSS welcomes additional nominations for any of the awards listed below.

The Deadline for completion and return of ALL the nominations forms is Friday 14th October 2016.  Completed nomination forms should be sent electronically to Karen Leaver: kleaver@sky.com. They are available to download from the SFSS website and also from your local School Games Organsier

I appreciate that you are very busy but please take a little time to consider who you think would benefit from the experience of being recognised by the Federation, their peers and their teachers for their efforts. The evening is an ideal opportunity to reward and recognise those who you consider worthy of being acknowledged in the presence of their family, friends and teachers.
