This year, students secured 7 Gold, 10 Silver and 19 Copper awards. Exceeding last year’s number of award winners (25), with 36 students receiving accolades.

Peter Cooper, Principal, was delighted to hear of the students’ success saying, “Huge congratulations to all of the award winners. These achievements reflect incredibly well upon our hard working students and dedicated staff.”
