During the award ceremony on Saturday, 10 November 2018, Justine also gave a speech as student representative. She spoke about the importance of being a lifelong learner as well as what it means to be a reflective learner, to work with others and to have a passion for something.
On behalf of the school, we would like to congratulate each of our students on their outstanding achievements. We would also like to thank our parents and Board of Governors as these accomplishments are only made possible with your support!
In Justine’s words, “What we have learned serves not just to enhance what we know, but to stimulate us to pursue the things we don’t understand.”
We hope these successes will motivate all of us to further pursue our passions and stay curious in our journey as a lifelong learner!
