This inaugural High Achievers Awards Ceremony was held at the Catholic Schools Office in Pennant Hills for students of systemic Catholic schools in the Broken Bay Diocese.
Students with an ATAR which placed them in the top three from their school attended the ceremony, along with their parents. Each student was recognised individually with a certificate.
Greg Miller, the Diocese of Broken Bay Secondary Schools Consultant, who hosted the evening, said that the ceremony recognised effort as well as achievement. “It was a wonderful occasion,” he said.
Mr Peter Hamill, Director of Schools for the Broken Bay Diocese, said that the awards recognised the HSC as the end result of thirteen years of education, not just the final college years.
“It is with pride that I note the majority of award recipients completed their primary schooling in Catholic schools within our Diocese,” he said.
