The Pierre de Coubertin Award recognises secondary school students who are active participants in sport and display the Olympic ideals of fair play and sportsmanship. The Awards are administered in each state by the respective State Olympic Council.

For a student to be eligible for the coveted prize, they must compete in at least one sport on the current Olympic program; and participated in at least two other sports (individual or team).

QAHS  is pleased to announce that Grace Moffat is the recipient of the 2015 Pierre de Coubertin Award. Grace has competed at a national level for swimming and has been an avid participant in cluster sport at QAHS. Her swimming successes have been documented throughout her QA journey in newsletters and assembly celebrations.


Grace Moffat's  artworkFurther to sport participation, the recipient must submit a piece of work (literary or artistic) which demonstrates/depicts an appreciation of Olympism. Participation in sport is a core value of the Olympic Games, in 2015 each nominee was asked to share one or more Olympic moments that epitomises the core values for the student. Grace submitted an artistic piece for this component.

Grace will receive her award at an official presentation ceremony on Saturday 11 July in Brisbane. In addition to the awards ceremony, Grace will also participate in an Olympic Leadership Program conducted exclusively for recipients prior to the awards ceremony.
