Celebrating the 2022 Awards Presentation Night
One’s ability to excel is limitless: Defeat is optional!
What does achievement look like?
Is it putting effort into schoolwork? Is it receiving awards that mark your achievement? Is it doing your absolute best in your subjects? Is it simply improvement overall?
In fact, Educational Excellence is all of these things combined, and more. Achieving excellence stems from a mindset that strives for it. Motivation, focus, continuous improvement, pride in oneself and the understanding of one's capabilities allows for any student to achieve excellence. There is no limit to what can be accomplished should the individual pursue set goals with a dedicated mindset.
“Be faithful and lose not one opportunity of merit that presents itself to you”
(Mary MacKillop 1873)
When young people excel, it is rare for the achievement to be an individual accomplishment and much more typical for the achievement to be a collective effort, coming from teachers, parents, friends, other family members and community allies. This support, combined with the student’s intrinsic motivation to achieve is recognised and celebrated at our Annual Awards Evening.
