Celebrating excellence

CBC Old Boys' Association President, Terry Iannello, presented Samuel Sheridan with the Association's award.

The CBC community gathered this morning in a celebration of academic excellence, including inducting nine members of the Class of 2017 into the prestigious 95 Academic Club.

The assembly followed the annual Year 13 Breakfast, where the College's most recent graduates were welcomed back to CBC, for a morning of memories and hopes for the future. Read more about the breakfast here.

Principal Mr Domenic Burgio spoke to students, encouraging them to always give their best regardless of their circumstances. He also stressed the importance of boys being proud of their absolute best, no matter how it compares to others.

The members of the 95 Academic Club achieve an ATAR of more than 95, placing them in the top five percent of their peers across the state. This year's inductees are:

  • Luke Carbonaro
  • Jacob Fitzpatrick
  • Jayden Goncalves
  • Tom Monaghan
  • Joel Pangiarella
  • Julian Phillips
  • Henry Rogerson

Ten outstanding students from the Class of 2017 were also awarded Certificates of Distinction by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA), for exceptional performance across their Year 11 and 12 subjects.

Jacob Fitzpatrick was also presented with a Subject Certificate of Excellence from the SCSA, for achieving an exam mark in the top 0.5% of all Modern History students.

The Old Boys' Association presented their annual award to Samuel Sheridan, who received the College's highest ATAR in 2017.

Eighteen students from Year 12 were also presented Certificates of Excellence and Distinction, recognising their achievement of 80% or 50% A grades in last year's College reports, respectively.

Members of the Academic Excellence Programme were also presented to the College, with 64 students from Years 7 to 11 presented with their badges and certificates.
