Academic Awards Ceremony

On Tuesday December 13, we took time to celebrate the academic success and wonderful gifts and talents of our boys at St Edward’s. The Awards ceremony is designed to acknowledge the application and effort of boys in Years 7-11 throughout the year. Students received awards for Consistent Effort, Academic Achievement and Outstanding Academic Achievement. Boys are nominated to receive these awards by their teachers, and students who receive an Outstanding Academic Achievement have been nominated by most, if not all, of their teachers.



Students also received awards in a range of categories including Public Speaking and Debating, Service Learning, Leadership, University of Newcastle Awards for excellence in Science and Mathematics, Sportsman of the Year Award, Innovation and Persistence.

Congratulations to all award winners on their application and effort throughout the year. These boys have challenged themselves to be the best they can be and should feel very proud of their achievements.  The following students were the recipients of the major awards.

End of Year

As the year draws to an end, I would like to thank families for your continued support of St Edward’s. I would like to thank and acknowledge the wonderfully committed teaching and support staff at St Edward’s. We can never underestimate the vital role that they play in supporting and caring for our students. Their dedication, passion for teaching and commitment to supporting students, is something that we must be very grateful for. I thank them for everything they do.

I wish all members of our community a safe and holy Christmas and a happy New Year.
