2022 Presentation Evening

On Tuesday, 29th November, 2022, WSC held our first Presentation Evening in 3 years. Sadly due to the restrictions with COVID, we had been unable to host our previously annual event for our students and their families.

It was a fantastic evening which was well attended, with our auditorium filled to capacity with family and friends and over 80 students on hand to receive their awards.
We were very privileged to have Major Mark Beveridge, Regimental Second in Command, School of Armour, Puckapunyal attend to present the ADF Long Tan Youth Leadership Award and the ADF Future Innovator Award.
The ADF Long Tan Youth Leadership and Teamwork Award recognises students in both Year 10 and Year 12 who demonstrate leadership and teamwork within both the school and the broader local community, and, at the same time, recognising those who display strong values, such as doing one’s best, respect for others and “mateship”, characteristics that are integral to Australian society.
The ADF Future Innovators Award recognises the recipients’ science and mathematic abilities while highlighting the value the Navy, Army and Air Force place on STEM skills and STEM career opportunities within Defence.
Rayton Vaeno (Year 12) and Kaleb Slaven (Year 10) were the well deserving winners of the ADF Long Tan Youth Leadership Award, whilst Aeryn Cipollone (Year 12) and Raaghav Chandra (Year 10) were recognised for their efforts winning the ADF Future Innovators Award.
Other worthy winners on the night were
* Emily Bridges who received the McEwen Award for Outstanding School Citizenship, generously donated by Mr Rob Mitchell MP, which recognises someone who goes above and beyond their responsibilities, for their hard work, commitment and service to the students of WSC.
* Ned Munro who received the Mitchell Shire Council Award, in acknowledgement of his leadership, action and achievement in creating a positive impact on his community.
* Ivy Foster who received the 2022 Insight Publications Award, which is presented to a Year 11 VCE student who has shown significant progress during the academic year and is nominated by teaching staff.
Jayde Waddell also accepted the WSC House Cup on behalf of the 2022 Winning House Barak.
The evening was also an opportunity for some of our students and staff to show off their talents with musical performances including singing and dance.
Wallan Secondary College would like to thank the students and their families for their attendance on the evening and more importantly for their commitment to education.
Well done and congratulations to each of our students.
