Emmaus students awarded

EMMAUS College congratulated many students across P-6 for their outstanding achievements in 2017 at a recent awards ceremony.

The ceremony recognised outstanding efforts in learning, leadership, service and character.

Students from each class were presented with certificates of achievement that celebrated aspects of learning that are explicitly taught at the College.  These awards included recognition of learners who are hope-filled, persistent and interactive and learning that is creating, inquiring and reflecting. 

In Years 3-6, a significant number of students were also acknowledged for academic achievement.  Academic awards are presented to those children who achieve at an A standard across more than half of the subject areas.  This focus on learning, fostered by dedication and effort, is strongly encouraged at Emmaus.

Acting Head of Primary, Liesl Profke praised the students on their fine accomplishments and talked to students about the joy of learning.

“I’m sure that  you would agree that we should be very proud of the children in Prep to Year 6.  In many different ways, on many different days each of the children have made progress and together we celebrate these achievements,” she said.

“We are very lucky at Emmaus to have staff and parents who work closely together to support the learning.  I would like to sincerely thank everyone in our community who has worked so hard this year to ensure that our young people are making positive progress.

Year 6 student Serenity Aitchison received the All Rounder Award for her efforts in 2017. Georgia Grimsey was awarded the BK Medallion for continued success in sports, while Brodie Golding received the Striving for Success Award. Jacob Marks was awarded the school’s 2017 Leadership Encouragement Award.
