Student achievement in spotlight at annual awards

DOMINIC College students have been commended for their academic results, leadership, creative talent and service to the community at the school’s year six to 10 awards ceremony.

The annual event, held in December, marked the final assembly for year 10 students, whose leaders passed on the symbols of the college to the incoming 2017 captains and vice captains during the proceedings.

Awards were presented to the outstanding students in each subject and year level, as well as overall achievement awards for the best academic achievements in each year level.

Student Laura Whittaker, who has attended Dominic College for five years, won a number of awards, including the St Catherine of Siena Academic Student of the Year – Girls, the Sr Pamela Davis OP Outstanding Achievement in Creative Arts – Girls, as well as prizes for English, creative writing, visual art and drama.

Laura is also a talented writer and poet. She plays the flute and has starred in a number of school productions.

Laura said her time at Dominic had been memorable, thanks to the support of teachers and peers.

“It is so rewarding to be a member of such a warm and welcoming community,” she said.

“I aim to study journalism and media.

“I would love to be a writer, exploring the people and cultures of the world.”

Dominic College offers a range of electives in the English and creative arts departments including specialist dance, art, music and drama with teachers who mentor students and promote performance opportunities.
