School honours elite
ST THERESE’S speech night was attended by about 200 people at its school grounds in Monto.
There were many proud award recipients, but one of the highlights was school captain Luka Hill being awarded North Burnett Schools’ Sportswoman of the Year.
Luka has excelled in cricket, netball, softball, soccer and athletics.
“I would like to thank Mum and Dad for all their support and I am looking forward to Rockhampton Girls’ Grammar next year,” Luka said.
Luka also received the St Therese Nano Nagle Award in memory of the founder of the school’s order. The award is the highest at St Therese’s and goes to the student who best reflects the qualities of Nano Nagle.
Jette Klijn was awarded the Rotary Academic Achievement Bursary for dux of the school.
Principal Tim Franzmann said the night reflected the wellrounded education offered by the school.
“Iwas particularly happy with school captains’ speeches. Itwas very satisfying to hand out all the awards as everyone has worked so hard,” Mr Franzmann said.
The St Therese family farewells not only the Year 7 group, but also teachers Christina Norris and Alexandra Baker.
