CECIL ANDREWS COLLEGE’S CLANS
The term “Clan” was adopted in place of “Factions” as the word “Clan” engendered a sense of family, was more tribal and something you could bond to. It is used to build a sense of belonging to a group or family.
Why Bradman? Chosen to represent our nation’s great sporting heroes. Don Bradman was singled out for his sporting achievements (recognized throughout Australia and the world) as well as for his character qualities – humble, dignified and passionate.

Why Freeman? Chosen to recognize the contributions of our Indigenous sport stars in Australia. Cathy Freeman was the most widely known role model the students could relate to. With our significantly large numbers of indigenous students at CAC, this was a fitting connection.
Colour: Red Mascot: Eagle
Why Starre? Chosen to honour Kate Starre, a former student of Cecil Andrews in the 1980’s, who went on to become an Olympic Champion in the Hockeyroos. She represented Australia in 3 Olympics (2000 – 2008) earning 2 Gold medals and a Silver medal. She was a role model to our students about following your dreams, reaching your full potential and never giving up.
