Awards presented on the day included; the school’s range of gold merit awards, the P&C Values, and CWA Literacy Awards.
In her address at the assembly CVPS principal Andrea Lester said, “these awards are an acknowledgement and indeed a celebration of achievements across a range of areas, not just academic but in many spheres of school life and beyond”.
“And to each student who is receiving an award today, and I’m talking about the whole gamut of awards, well done each and every one of you. You’re all deserving of congratulations and acknowledgement on such an occasion.”
The assembly concluded with the presentation of the top award the Principal’s Medallion.
To be eligible a student must have achieved not only the required number of Gold awards, but present themselves for an interview to confirm their suitability.
This can be a rather daunting task and perhaps the first ‘interview’ of their young lives.
The eight students who received the medallion were: Elke Simpson, Emily Nott, Isabelle Hauville, Ella Maynard, Xanthe Althofer, Jemimah Russell, Tayla Large, and Guy Rohr.
Mrs Lester’s message to the recipients was “each of you has strived over a long period of time to achieve or attain this highest award and it is a credit to you”.
“To the eight very deserving recipients of the Principal’s Medallion you are students who at this stage absolutely exemplify all that is held in high esteem at this school,” she said.
“You’ve demonstrated that you’ve consistently done your best in whatever endeavours you’ve undertaken over the period of your primary school years.
“Not only have you achieved, you’ve show that you are young people of compassion, honesty, integrity, and certainly tenaciousness.”
