The following students are to be congratulated for their outstanding academic performance across virtually all of their subjects during the first semester of this year. The criteria for an Academic Excellence Award is eight or more ‘A’ grades in a school report. These students have used a range of cognitive skills to achieve at such a consistently high level: retentive memories, persistence, creativity in problem solving, curiosity, and constructive questioning. As I said in my speech when the awards were presented by Mrs Berlage and Mrs Dickinson, excellence matters in the world because it gives us the elegant bridges that keep us safely moving and connected every day; it gives us the medical breakthroughs that save our lives. These girls, and the breadth of skills they encompassed, are our future engineers and surgeons. For those of us whose excellence may not be as wide ranging, these girls can inspire us to strive and persist in our own learning challenges.
