The Students of the Term for Term Two were announced at assembly this week.

This award recognises one young man in each year level who has lived our school values: Respect, Perseverance, Honour, Courage and Excellence.  He ideally will be a student who has shown through his actions these values, not just his potential.  This award, we hope, will inspire all our students.
