Award Winning Kincumber

June 12, 2018

Holy Cross Catholic School Kincumber was strongly represented at the local Aboriginal Education Consultative Group (AECG) awards night.  The awards consisted of recognition in the three categories of outstanding academic achievement, sporting achievement and community participation.

The AECG is a state wide not for profit organisation which ensures that Aboriginal Education continues to be represented in our schools and learning institutions. As a voluntary organisation, their main role is to promote active participation by Aboriginal people in the consultative and decision making process of education.

Holy Cross were proudly nominated for awards in all 3 categories and against strong competition, from both primary and high schools in the local area, the school managed to take out all three categories!

Neo Thompson, Year 4 student,  for his outstanding achievement in mathematics , Hamish Taylor, Year 5, for his outstanding sportsmanship and achievements in a variety of sports including swimming, athletics and the Holy Cross Dance Troupe for their newly formed Aboriginal Dance Group, which have successfully performed at a number of occasions in schools across the Diocese.
