Nomination for Newslocal Young Achiever of the Year Award/Junior Sportsperson of the Year Award for Hills Shire Times for Jack Strawhan
While only in Year 4, Jack Strawhan dreams of achieving his black belt. This dream seems possible when you consider that Jack placed first in in his sparring event (Jack is a red 3) at the NSW All Schools Competition on 5th September, 2015! This was the first time the Arden Anglican School student had entered a sparring competition, so you can imagine his excitement. Jack competed under Arden’s banner at the NSW All Schools Competition with his club Hills District Martial Arts. Since then, Jack has started training towards his black belt with the club and Mr Justin. Jack has had a trial grading for black belt which highlights the areas for improvement in the lead up to black belt grading. He will try for his black belt towards the end of this year.
