AchievementRuby O’Neill, Year 11

To me, achievement is all about looking back and being proud of the effort, skill and courage used in the pursuit of whatever goals you set for yourself. It is important to look back and reflect on our past achievements as it helps us grow. At the end of Year 11, I see the person I have become and I am proud of my achievements in and out of school.

ProfessionalismJosh Edekere, Year 11

I view professionalism as acting calm, having manners and being mature in the public face or even at home. I view professionalism as showing respect to everyone you meet, everyone you like and even the people you don’t like - it often means rising above your differences and focusing on your work.

IntegrityEduardo Asandoaie, Year 7

Integrity is honesty. It is being true to yourself and making the right decision when you are being judged and even when you are not. Integrity is not just in your head but in your heart as well - we come to school to thrive in learning but it is important not to forget who we are, why we are here and what is important to us. That is integrity.
