The College Captains thanked the students, staff, and parents for attending the Year 10 & 11 Awards Assembly. Year 9 students were especially welcomed as they attended their first Senior School Assembly.  The top three achievers in each subject across years 10 and 11 were celebrated.

The College Captains explained: to enhance the learning process, students attended excursions, were involved in creative learning, and engaged in practical learning activities to further develop their subject knowledge.  The current year 10 students are next to move through this experience and have much to look forward to.  With more specific subject selections and styles, the journey through years 10 and 11 is tailored to each individual’s passions, interests and endeavours toward life post-graduation.
