In assembly on Tuesday we instituted a new award - Student of the Term.
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.
The recipients for Term One are:
Year 9 Liam Connolly
Liam has received nominations from 4 members of staff who commented that “Liam is an all round excellent student, produces fantastic work and homework is above and beyond. He completes all tasks to the best of his ability and adds positively to group discussion.”
Year 10 Colby Allen
Colby Allen has had an outstanding Term One. He has worked tirelessly both in the classroom and in the many activities he is involved with outside of the classroom. He is a polite young man who is well respected by his peers. A great start to the year Colby, well done and keep up the good work.
