The Pierre de Coubertin Awards is a major program of the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) Schools Education Strategy. The Awards program is named after the founder of the Modern Olympic Games, Baron Pierre de Coubertin. The program is designed to emphasise participation and commendable sporting behaviour consistent with the Olympic Movement. It is not primarily intended to reward elite performance alone. Each Queensland secondary school is invited to nominate one student (only) from year 10, 11 or 12 as its Pierre de Coubertin Award nominee.

This year we are proud to announce that Victoria Point State High School’s Pierre de Coubertin Award Recipient is Year 11 student, Samantha Ryan. Samantha is a perfect candidate and deserved recipient for this award, as she has represented the school, district or region in at least three sports in the competitive arena. Samantha’s sporting talent is obvious, being a state netball representative with a big future as well as a major talent in basketball and volleyball, contributing to the major success of the school teams and representative teams she has played in. However, it is how she goes about playing these sports (the major criteria for this award) that make her a worthy winner, being a young athlete who demonstrates initiative, teamwork, sportsmanship and fair play in all that she does. Great effort Samantha!​
