Archbishop Award for Student Excellence presented to Elena
12th September 2022
The Archbishop of Sydney Awards for Student Excellence is an annual recognition by the Archbishop of Sydney, of the outstanding young women and men in our Catholic schools. Each year, the awards acknowledge the students’ commitment to their faith, academic life, community and social justice. It is an important way of highlighting the very positive contribution that young people make to their school and local community. Specifically, these awards recognise those young people who give witness to their Christian values and who actively contribute to the faith life of their school. Recipients of the award are practising Catholics who show responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the Catholic faith community. It is also an affirmation of the support that families offer their children, and public acclaim for the commitment and dedication of their teachers.
On Friday 9 September, Elena Gionta was presented with the Archbishop of Sydney Award for Excellence.
Elena is known for her consistency and reliability in being witness to the faith at the College and truly lives the College motto: ‘La Verite – The Truth.’
Congratulations to Elena on this wonderful achievement and many thanks to Emily Fernandez for reading the citation during the ceremony at St Mary’s Cathedral.
