The Caroline Complex hall was filled with young athletes, their parents and supporters, and Caroline School athletics instructors on June 7 for the annual Athletics Awards ceremony. The last few years has seen a positive change in the culture at Caroline School and it has a lot to do with the recognition by school authorities that the people of the Caroline area value sports highly.
The result has been a very high participation rate of students in competitive sports and the great bonus has been greater academic achievements by highly motivated students.
Parent volunteers, school staff and management have all worked together to achieve this change which is now putting Caroline students at the leading edge in many sports competitions.
The breadth of the engagement in sports is reflected in the number of teams fielded by the school: Football, Senior High Golf, Cross Country Running, Junior B2 Girls Volleyball. Junior B1 Girls Volleyball, Junior B Boys Volleyball, Junior A Girls Volleyball, Junior A Boys Volleyball, Junior Varsity Girls Volleyball, Senior Girls Volleyball, Senior Boys Volleyball, Curling, Junior B Girls Basketball, Junior B2 Boys Basketball, Junior B1 Boys Basketball, Junior A Girls Basketball, Junior A Boys Basketball, Senior Girls Basketball, Senior Boys Basketball, Senior High Badminton, Junior High Badminton,
