Senior Prizegiving

By Ms Cate Knowles | Posted: Friday November 10, 2017

Prizegiving is an important event in the school calendar and it was great to see so many staff, students and community members in attendance. The evening showcased the academic, sporting and cultural achievements of our students. It was also pleasing to be able to publicly celebrate the entrance scholarships that some of our Year 13 students have received from the universities that they will be attending next year. This is a clear endorsement of the diligent way that they have approached their studies. As a school we are very proud of all of these students and what they have achieved in the 2017 school year.

Congratulations to all of our prize winners. 

Please see below a list of the University Scholarships, Special Award and Scholarship recipients for 2017 and also the Supreme Award winners from the evening.
