Year 11 Excellence Awards

"Receiving this award has reinforced my passions and...will help to encourage my HSC studies and for me to achieve my best.

I have aspirations to study Marine Biology post-school at The University of Newcastle, to establish effective conservation programs in and around our local coastal areas.

I’d like to thank the Faculty of Science for their recognition of my achievements and encouragement of my interest in these core areas."
