CGFC Report – August 2021

What another crazy year 2021 has turned out to be. At present the current lockdown has meant the VAFA has concluded all regular season competition, with just under two thirds of the games played. The disruption to the season has been far from ideal, however our young women and men, along with our wonderful coaches and support staff, have handled it all largely in their stride. This is best demonstrated by 4 out of our 6 sides qualifying for finals in their Premier competitions. This is simply an outstanding achievement and we as a club are so proud to have made such a mark in our return to A Grade in both men’s and women’s competitions. Our women’s senior side finished 3rd and were successful in the 1st Semi Final against West Brunswick, so are now waiting for the opportunity to tackle SKO...

VFLW Star & Future Paramedic – Kara Henderson

Kara Henderson (Class of 2015) has opened herself up to pursue all opportunities that have come her way post high school. Now a Biomed graduate, paramedicine student and VFLW player, she has found her journey to be incredibly rewarding and trusts that uncertainty will always not only be present, but bring about invaluable learnings. Kara grew up at Caulfield Grammar School, spending 13 of her formative years at Wheelers Hill Campus. Here, Kara discovered she would never be limited to one calling, but rather feel compelled to try everything. At school she simultaneously captained the Cross-Country team, played in the orchestra and concert band, zoomed around in human powered vehicles, was on the School Committee, and in the rock-climbing squad.

Para Triathlete and Mental Health Ambassador – Liam Twomey

As a para triathlete and Mental Health Ambassador, two roles his high school self never would have expected to one day hold, Liam Twomey (Class of 2011) is truly making a tangible impact for future generations. Caulfield & elite sport Looking back on his Caulfield experience, Liam is reminded of the great amount of laughter he shared with his mates. These memories, 10 years down the track, still manage to make him laugh, and probably will continue to do so for the next 10 years. The main take away from this was to enjoy every day to the max. Stepping into elite sport was not something Liam really anticipated. He was pushed into a Triathlon by a friend, who recommended him. Liam begrudgingly agreed to give it a try, despite thinking he wasn’t very good at any of the three sports involve...

Team Mate & Triathlete – Anne Martin

Caulfield Grammarians’ Athletics Club Anne Martin is a key member of the CGA Athletics club which competes in the Associated Public Schools Old Collegians Amateur Athletic Association (APSOC) competition. She has a soft spot for the Brighton by the Sea APSOC race, as the club always does well in the team event and the last kilometre of running along the soggy sand is, to her, “hilariously torturous”. Anne loves the friendships she’s made in the team and the sense of camaraderie with people from all circles of life. She is also very passionate about increasing the number of Caulfield alumni participating in APSOC Cross Country events. Anne encourages any interested Grammarian to Put your running shoes on and come along to an event; we are a super friendly bunch who support all levels ...
