Ben Van Dorssen

01 May 2018

I recognise the outstanding sporting achievements of Ben Van Dorssen from my electorate of Charlestown. Last year and this year have been successful for this young sports star, who has begun his first year of high school. Ben secured gold, representing New South Wales in football at the 10th Pacific School Games. His team went through the entire competition undefeated. Having captained the Hunter region team, Ben was selected to play for the State team in the under-12s division. Ben's achievements, however, do not stop there. He is now playing with the under-13s at the Newcastle Jets AcademyGo, Jets! Ben is an outstanding sportsman but his recent literacy results prove that he is also working hard in the classroom. Well done on your all-round achievements, Ben. One day I will be asking for your autograph
