YEAR 12 AWARDS 👏👏 Congratulations to Sophia P. who is the recipient of The Catherine McAuley Award. This award is the school’s highest non-academic award and is presented to the student who has made an outstanding contribution to the life of the school. “We should be shining lamps, giving light to all around us” - these words of Venerable Catherine McAuley are clearly reflected in the way Sophia has spent her time at school. In her role as Leader of Hospitality, Sophia introduced initiatives to promote harmony among the students, ensuring that everyone was made to feel welcome and included. She provided a ‘light’ to the new Year 7 students, running lunchtime programs to help in their transition to secondary school. Working closely with the Leader of Culture, Sophia helped implement and regularly supervised Creative Corner - an initiative that provided a place and opportunity to relax, be creative and meet new friends. In the classroom Sophia’s diligence and strong determination to excel has yielded outstanding academic results. She constantly strives for personal excellence, whilst quietly assisting other students. She is always willing to take risks and challenges in her learning, confidently expressing her ideas whilst always listening respectfully to others. Sophia also volunteered to participate in a number of community leadership forums and inter-school events. Her participation in The Smith Family Reading Program shows her concern for the wider community. Sophia’s generosity and positive attitude have impressed staff and students alike. She is an outstanding role model ‘giving light’ to those around her, and is truly a worthy recipient of this prestigious award. Congratulations Sophia!
