Last Thursday Bethlehem College recognised the many achievements of our students in the areas of academia, sport and service. Mrs Taouk and our new senior SRC, President Jessica Clemente and Vice President Barbara Farhat hosted the event. Our special guests, Sister Genevieve Walsh representing the Sisters of Charity and Ms. Libby Denny, Inner West Regional Consultant assisted with the presentation of awards along with our Year and KLA Coordinators.
A new addition to the Awards Day was the presentation of four new House Awards in each year group. Each award has a different focus, acknowledging outstanding achievement in: Leadership (Vincentia), Service (Caritas) Community (Loreto) and a Love of learning (Aikenhead). Each of the recipients was delighted to receive her award.
The evening was also a wonderful showcase of the many talented Performing Arts students in the school including: The On The Block Band, the Noteworthy Ensemble, Year 10 Pianist Photini Psarommatis, Year 7 vocalist Amber Stanton, the Year 9 Drama class, a video presentation of the Term 3 Precinct learning project, “Thinkfest” and the CGSSSA Hip Hop Dance troupe. Thanks are extended to Mrs Bowyer, Mrs Smart, Mr Lee, Miss Lindon and Mrs Matheos for the preparation of the items and Year 8 student Alexandra Farhat for her amazing work on the Thinkfest Video.
