Literacy

Our Mission is to provide the opportunity for all students to maximise their potential, with the notion of potential being unique for each student. It follows that students’ skills in the area of Literacy will also be unique and, nurtured correctly, will allow them to pursue their interests and dreams.

Back to back Frank MacDonald Memorial Prize achievements for History students

2019-11-08T09:22:20+11:008 November, 2019|Categories: Senior School|

Congratulations to Chi Canty (Year 9) who last week was announced as one of the recipients of the Frank MacDonald Memorial Prize for 2019-2020.

This is a wonderful achievement for Chi and follows on from William Scott’s receipt of this same prize last year. It is rare to have two students from the same school achieve this prize consecutively and this is a testament to the opportunities for research into World War One that are available for our Year 9 Humanities students. Chi will follow in Will’s footsteps and travel to France […]
