On Wednesday 18 February, our Senior School students attended the annual Scholars Assembly to celebrate the achievements of our top Year 12 students from last year. Carey Scholars, by definition, are students who have achieved study scores of 99 or above. The Class of 2014 had an impressive 21 Scholars, and we were fortunate enough to have 15 of these Scholars join us at the Scholars Assembly.
With their family members in the audience, the Scholars were individually recognised on stage by Mr James Brown, Head of Senior School. One of the things that really stood out about each of these students was the breadth of their co-curricular involvement. Each of the students presented had been involved in a wide variety of activities during their time at Carey. It was living proof of the oft mentioned fact that our most successful students are almost always those who heavily involve themselves in the School community.
Two of the Scholars, Hannah McNicol and Will Slifirski, also spoke to the current Senior School students. Their speeches were informative, entertaining and insightful. Their tips for the current students were all very valuable, especially coming from two people who had so recently completed Year 12.
