Marymede's Golden Girl

News date: 

Nine years ago, Year 8 student Tanisha De Silva took part in her very first Taekwondo lesson, after seeing her older brother participate for some time.

Her nine year journey has seen many exciting achievements and opportunities arise, most recently, having the chance to compete at the Oceania Taekwondo Championships and Australian Open which both took place in Sydney from August 14-17.

Tanisha competes in the ‘Sparring’ competition, in the Cadet Division (Ages 12-14) and managed to leave the event with two medals! Gold (1st) in the Oceania Championship event and Bronze (3rd) in the Australian Open event.

Tanisha, who enjoys all aspects of her sport, particularly learning self-defence skills, is now looking forward to the National Championships which will take place in Adelaide this December.

Marymede Catholic College would like to congratulate Tanisha on her recent outstanding achievements.
