Earlier today, a whole school assembly was staged in the PLHS Gymnasium to acknowledge the outstanding Term 3 efforts and achievements of many students.
The ceremony was conducted by Deputy Principal Mrs. Lesley Warren and opened with an Acknowledgement of Country from Year 12 student Nathaniel Hirschausen-Burk. Inspired by the incredible story of Helen Keller (and her dedicated teacher Anne Sullivan), PLHS Principal Mr. Todd George provided a thoughtful address to the students about the power of persistence. Principal Student Leaders Nathaniel Hirschausen-Burk and Denise Sadiwa then proudly and eloquently delivered their final speech to the student body.
Based on the following grade point average criteria, Academic Award certificates were announced and presented by the six Year Level Managers. Congratulations to all of today’s recipients.
Academic Awards: A grade point average (GPA) is calculated for each student of the school. A GPA score of 4 indicates an A grade for each subject studied. There are two categories of Academic Awards:
- Academic Excellence awards recognise students who have achieved a GPA of more than 3.5 (with no D or E grades) across all of their Semester 2 subjects
- Meritorious Effort awards recognise students who have achieved a GPA of at least 3 (with no D or E grades) across all of their Semester 2 subjects
