Our annual Awards Night held at the City of Kingston Town Hall in Moorabbin on Wednesday, 6 December was such a wonderful celebration of achievement of Personal Best. We had the opportunity to celebrate student successes in a variety of areas such as Academic Excellence, Achievement Endeavour, the Arts &Technology, Sport and Community involvement. High quality entertainment was also provided by students in the areas of Music and Dance. It was also a most significant occasion for our Year 12 students. All students were presented on stage in academic gowns to celebrate the achievements of the graduating class with the entire school community. There was a fantastic attendance on the night, with all tickets being sold. It was wonderful to welcome back our DUX from 2016, Jure Plestina representing the Australian Defence Force. He gave a very inspiring speech reflecting on his time at Mordialloc College and the past year training in the defence force. He is completing a Bachelor of Science majoring in Physics and Aviation with the ultimate goal of becoming a pilot with the defence force. Our School Captains, Elena Holland and Finn McHenry, were our MC’s for the night and did a terrific job and also gave very thoughtful and inspiring speeches.
My thanks must go to Laura Gorman and Robyn Wilson for all their work in putting the evening together for us, to all of my teaching staff who all had an allocated role on the night to ensure the effective running of this significant event and Gloria Bendit in the office who worked tirelessly behind the scenes on the administration.
