Young Achiever Awards
Our student award program is based on the need for our students to be rewarded for their achievements and progressions, and to encourage them to continue with such practices throughout their school experience.
The Young Achiever Awards are based on our five school values - Respect, Excellence and Resilience. Students who demonstrate any of these values within the college can be awarded a Young Achiever Award.
