On Friday 14 October award nominees and their loved ones attended the Darumbal Community Youth Service’s Annual Student Awards night held at the Robert Schwarten Pavillion. The girls enjoyed a delicious dinner and were entertained by talented local Aboriginal Dance groups. We were lucky enough to see five of our Girls Grammar girls including Destiny, Marratta, Zafeera, Suneisha and Shiraleise performing with their Ghungalu Guyu Yama Mia Dance Group, the girls all danced beautifully while proudly representing their mob.
The Student Awards were divided into three categories;
Citizenship which is given to students who are disciplined within the classroom/ school area, honour school rules and Community environments. Some examples of the qualifications are, participating in community service, having a positive attitude in and out of the classroom/school environment and helping others for the current school year.
Academic recognises the effort, attendance, and engagement a student puts into their schoolwork at an educational level suitable for the individual student nominated, for the current school year.
Sportsmanship refers to students who have distinguished themselves by demonstrating acts of sportsmanship, ethical behaviour, and virtues such as fairness, self-control, courage, and persistence that has been associated with interpersonal concepts of treating others and being treated fairly, maintaining self-control if dealing with others, respect for both authority and opponents for the current school year.
Girls Grammar had seven girls recognised for their hard work and commitment in their categories. Bella, Suneisha and Shiraleise were awarded Citizenship Awards, Mackenzie, Camryn and Tylah received Academic Awards and Ella was awarded a Sportsmanship Award.
We are very proud of our girls who all represented themselves and our school wonderfully at the event. Please congratulate them on their achievements if you see them around the school grounds.
