The last week has certainly shone a light on the acadamic and other achievements on school students in our region.
With the school year drawing to a close in what has been the most difficult year our students, teachers etc have seen, it is worth acknowleding what they have achieved.
TAS was awarded the debate for building a case around the idea that only a mandatory community service program incorporated into the school curriculum would expose all students to the importance of service.
Meanwhile, another TAS student, Georgia Donoghue, has been selected to attend the National Mathematics Summer School (NMSS) in January, which will be held virtually due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.
Last Thursday was International Day of People with Disability, and as part of a special inclusion initiative, the Diocese of Armidale produced a series of videos to share the stories of students with disabilities. to celebrate their achievements.
Over the last week, we also saw the Council of Catholic School Parents NSW/ACT announce St Joseph's Primary School in Uralla as the recipient of the 2020 Roger O'Sullivan Memorial Award for family, school and community partnerships for learning.
I'm sure it won't be the last we hear of what our students are achieving in 2020.
