ROCKINGHAM Senior High School Education Support Centre staff and students were celebrated at an awards ceremony at the Gary Holland Centre on Monday.
The event was also an opportunity to farewell the Year 12 cohort for 2017.
Principal Sally Pippen said the school was lucky to have passionate and enthusiastic staff who work hard to provide motivating programs promoting academic achievement as well as emotional growth for the students.
“Our aim is to give our students the skills to live happy, successful lives in this constantly changing world,” she said.
The Dux Award for 2017 was won by Oscar Zanoli, for all his outstanding achievements and results and his sensible and mature approach to his studies.
Another special presentation was made by Department of Biodiversity, Conservations and Attractions project officer Richard Olive to staff member and unit leader Rachel Nixon.
Ms Nixon was nominated for and won the Bush Ranger WA – Instructor Excellence Award for 2017.
She was recognised for her dedication, hard work and leadership talents.
The Bush Ranger program at the school not only supports our community with the Adopt a Beach and Tangaroa Blue project, but also instils a sense of belonging, achievement and personal satisfaction for students who participate.
Students Rachel Pearson and Khyle Tyrrell hosted the morning as the MCs.
