Honouring Academic Achievement
Students from Years 8 to 12 gathered for Achievers’ Club lunches this week. 116 students were recognised for their outstanding academic efforts in Semester 2, 2023.
Years 10, 11, and 12 students were recognised on Wednesday, while Years 8 and 9 were acknowledged on Thursday.
Principal, Jennifer Oaten congratulated the girls and emphasised the importance of hospitality, encouraging them to be supportive of their peers and celebrate each other’s success.
Why do we have an Achievers' Club?
Reflecting on the academic achievements, the question arises: Why do we have an Achievers’ Club? Here are five reasons why:
- We aim to foster knowledge, skills, and values through teaching and learning.
- Being in the Achievers’ Club doesn’t necessarily mean perfect scores but rather acknowledges consistent effort over time.
- Excellence is fundamental to our Mercy Values. Achievers demonstrate excellence by performing well in various subjects inspiring others to strive for their best.
- Public recognition of academic achievements motivates students to continue applying themselves. Celebrating academic success reinforces the value of education and cultivates a lifelong passion for learning.
- High achievers can serve as role models for their peers, inspiring them to believe in their own abilities and strive for success in their academic endeavours.
Overall, recognising academic achievers not only celebrates individual accomplishments but also contributes to a positive learning environment and encourages a culture of continuous improvement and excellence.
Congratulations to all those recognised for their hard work and dedication.
