“Tonight is an important celebration for the school and its community,” he said. “It is a celebration of the hard work from the students of our school, their parents and carers, the South Dubbo community and our dedicated staff.”
School captains Melissa McDonald and Kerrod Potter saw more than 280 awards presented to students in recognition of academic, cultural and sporting achievements. Staff including Calvin Reid, Helen Jones, Vicki Mitchell and Dianne Baker were recognised for contributions to public education.
Mr Thompson said Dubbo College had continued to produce excellent academic results.
“Our school musical, champion debating teams and Student Representative Council all make us the envy of other schools,” he said.
“Our sporting teams have once again competed strongly at state level with highlights being our girls’ basketball team coming fourth in the state and our seven-a-side rugby side winning at state level.”
Creative and performing arts head teacher Jules Manton said it was an eventful and terrific year for students at South Campus. Highlights included a trip to Sydney to work with the National Institute of Dramatic Art, strong representation at the Western Region Dance Camp and involvement in a short film festival.
“Congratulations to Amber Bunt who was successful through audition in joining the State Dance Ensemble performing in the State Dance Festival and NSW Public Schools spectacular,” she said.
“Other notable individual successes include wonderful work and huge success at the eisteddfods by Melissa McDonald, Amber Bunt, Irunika Hapuwida, Billie Palin, Nathan Bryon, Elijah Stanger-Jones and Oscar Del Bao.
“Term three was about our musical production High School Musical 2 Junior. More than 80 students were involved in the production which enjoyed great success.”
