This week, we celebrated the Cum Laude Award recipients from Junior and Senior Schools for Semester Two 2019. The Cum Laude Awards were introduced in 2009 to recognise those students who achieved at the highest level in at least half of their subjects.

It is wonderful to see the numbers of students excelling on a day to day basis and being rewarded for their efforts.

The achievements of our students in their internal assessments have direct correlation to any external assessments, a validation of the professional capabilities of our teachers and curriculum leaders. It is no secret that our success year after year in QCE and NAPLAN is because of the culture of achievement and recognition we so cherish.

Our Academic Captains, Jacinta Mai and Mohnish Chand, ran the Senior School Assembly in a timely fashion, negotiating the many names of the recipients superbly. It is a credit to all our students how quickly they settle to the new year and its new tasks.

Investiture of Student Leaders and the Commissioning of the Class of 2020

The Class of 2020 had their Investiture today after their Investiture Dinner last night. The evening was enjoyed by the Senior Class who were presented with their ties by me and their Senior Jerseys by the Year 12 Co-ordinator, Mrs Kate Cornell. We enjoyed an inspiring address from Dr Lisa Nissen, Class of 1989, our inaugural Alumni of the Year Winner in 2019.

Of course, the greatest gift was the presentation of the Year 12 badges to the Class of 2020 by the Class of 2032, the Preppies. A precious moment for both classes.
