Pilbara News - - Front Page - Louise Alling­ham

Kar­ratha’s St Luke’s Col­lege com­mu­nity cel­e­brated an ar­ray of stu­dent achieve­ments from the past year at their an­nual pre­sen­ta­tion night on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 23.

More than 50 awards were handed out to high-achiev­ing Year 10, 11 and 12 stu­dents.

In her ad­dress, prin­ci­pal Alanna Ot­way said it was a priv­i­lege to gather to recog­nise the aca­demic ex­cel­lence and com­mu­nity con­tri­bu­tions of the stu­dents.

“2017 has once again, I’m sure the staff will at­test, been a very big year and fruit­ful year and St Luke’s,” she said.

“To our award win­ners this evening, it is you we are here to ac­knowl­edge and to cel­e­brate.

“Many ac­co­lades will be given to you this evening.

“Please know that you are de­serv­ing win­ners.”

Av­inash Sud­hakaran, 17, was the big win­ner of the night.

Av­inash was an­nounced as col­lege dux and also took home the award for best all-round achieve­ment.

He also re­ceived ATAR English, ATAR physics and math­e­mat­ics meth­ods awards for ex­cel­lence.

Pa­trick Catam­bay was given the prox­ime and prin­ci­pal award.

Mrs Ot­way said the prin­ci­pal award recog­nised the unique and very spe­cial im­pact one in­di­vid­ual had made on the col­lege and was given for the first time last year.

“This par­tic­u­lar young man knows that true de­vel­op­ment comes from giv­ing both your ut­most aca­dem­i­cally but also in serv­ing oth­ers to make a pos­i­tive dif­fer­ence in your com­mu­nity,” she said.
