School praises and farewells grad­u­ates

Pilbara News - - Pilbara Education - Ali­cia Per­era

■ It’s an emo­tional time of year for Year 12 stu­dents, but Kar­ratha Se­nior High School showed plenty of con­fi­dence in their leavers at the school’s pre­sen­ta­tion night at the Tam­brey Func­tion Cen­tre last Wed­nes­day.

Eighty-three of the school’s Year 12 stu­dents grad­u­ated in front of proud fam­ily and friends.

Prin­ci­pal Greg Kelly said this Year 12 co­hort had played an im­por­tant part in cul­tural changes at the school.

He praised the stu­dents for their hard work and lead­er­ship qual­i­ties and wished them luck for their up­com­ing ex­ams.

Fe­male school cap­tain Sarah Mullen dom­i­nated the WACE sub­ject prizes, win­ning Stage 3 English, Maths, Hu­man Bi­ol­ogy and Chem­istry.

She was awarded school dux and also scored one of three Univer­sity of Western Aus­tralia Ex­cel­lence Awards, putting her in good stead to pur­sue her am­bi­tion of study­ing medicine there.

Joshua Buchanan was awarded high­est achiever in VET stud­ies as well as the Cer­tifi­cate 2 Elec­trotech­nol­ogy sub­ject award.

He hopes to study me­chan­i­cal or elec­tri­cal en­gi­neer­ing, pos­si­bly through a Wood­side elec­tri­cal ap­pren­tice­ship.

James Ben­nett was an­nounced run­ner-up dux, male school cap­tain Trent Preece won the Cal­tex All Rounder Award and James Chet­tell was given the pres­ti­gious Long Tan Lead­er­ship and Team­work Award.

City of Kar­ratha deputy mayor John Lally pre­sented Gabby Woulfe with the Cit­i­zen­ship Award on be­half of the City.
