Year 11 student, Mitchell Henning has recently returned from the World Youth Ice Hockey Championships held in Bulgaria where he represented Australia. Pitted against the next generation of world ice hockey stars, Mitchell and his Australian teammates achieved the extraordinary and won the Gold Medal in their group division. From all reports Mitchell is a highly valued member of the Australian squad and was instrumental in his team’s Gold Medal success. Australia will now move to a higher division and has declared that it has the ability to compete with world ice hockey giants such as America and Russia. To represent Australia is one thing but to achieve the ultimate success of winning gold is quite another and our school community is hugely proud of Mitchell and his amazing achievements.
