Hills International College students were honoured for their outstanding academic achievements from semester one at their half-year academic awards presentation last month.
Hills has run the mid-year awards ceremony for six years in order to give a snapshot of great achievement, not just waiting until the end of year speech night.
Students achieving straight A’s for their subjects are awarded an academic honour with distinction.
Year 12 student Emily Cooper and year 11 student Jayron Gray as well as year 9 students Lauren Turner, Chantelle Tray and Taleaha Dempsey achieved this award.
Students receiving A’s across half their subjects were recognised with an academic honour.
Principal Kevin Lynch said it was a great effort for everyone who was presented with an award.
“Our year 11 and 12 students have criteria based benchmarks and it great to see those students achieving,” he said.
“All the recipients should be proud of themselves.
“These are quite prestigious awards based on values that we uphold here, such as diligence and success.”
Mr Lynch said several students were also awarded quiet achievement awards after receiving a positive nominations across half of their subjects showing a consistent outstanding effort.
Year 12 student Byron Sensysn was presented with an ADFA Education Award at the ceremony as well.
This award guarantees a place for him at ADFA, if he chooses to follow that higher educational path.
He was also awarded a laptop.
Mr Lynch said it was great to see a year 12 student focused on a certain goal.
“This is a great opportunity for him to take up a place with ADFA,” he said.
