On Tuesday 13th November, The Tjudibaring AECG (Aboriginal Education Consultative Group) held its 3rd annual Recognition Awards night. This night is held each year to celebrate the success of Aboriginal students in schools within the local area.
Holy Cross students were nominated in 3 categories this year:
- Sporting Achievement- Hamish T (Year 6);
- Resilience- Jayden M (Year 4);
- Performing Arts- Nyah C (Year 6).
Jayden and Nyah were successful in winning the Primary School Awards in their respective categories, receiving certificates and prizes for their efforts.
Jayden was recognised for overcoming several hurdles this year and continuing to apply himself to his studies with a smile on his face.
Nyah was commended for her efforts in singing, which have included performances to staff, students and community alike and a successful audition to study at Hunter Performing Arts High School next year.
