End of year prizes

Tuesday, 10 December 2013

This post is to provide information about the overall academic excellence prize and class prizes that were awarded to members of the class at the End of Year ceremony. Read below to find out why each student was awarded the prize this year.

Prizes across all of T@TT

Jemima exemplifies everything you would hope for in a Mount Pleasant student. Not only does she always aim for excellence in everything she does, she is also involved in almost every aspect of school life. Academically, she is one of our top students and a true all rounder excelling in literacy, mathematics and science. This academic excellence has helped her to gain a scholarship to St Margarets. She also recently won the Bays Cluster speech competition showing her flair for public speaking which she also demonstrated at the End of Year Celebration. Jemima has taken on positions of responsibility in the school such as leading the school council. In this role, she was pivotal in the organisation of Market Day and the school discos. She has also been part of the choir, the rock band and the school netball team.

Class Prizes
EXCELLENCE - shared with Maddi and Zac

Maddi has produced some stunning pieces of writing over the course of the year and is able to read and analyse complex and challenging texts. She seeks feedback on her work while still being confident of her own stylistic choices. She is able to work independently to an exceptionally high standard.

Zac has a passion for mathematics and will work tirelessly to understand a new concept or theory. He has recently been working through a Year 11 mathematics text book and will often sit back to mull over his learning. He enjoys solving complicated problems and was a key member of our Cantamaths team.


Emily is an extremely hard working class member who can always be counted on to settle quickly to a task and then to complete it to a very high standard. She takes great care with her written work. She is able to maintain her focus in both independent and group work situations and will be key in taking a task to completion.


Sam’s willingness to work hard and fantastic attitude to her learning has really paid off this year. She has gone up the equivalent of three years in her reading age since the beginning of the year which is a huge achievement. She has also made great gains in her writing and has become a lot more confident in herself. 


Logan has shown on a number of occasions that he is willing to support activities in our class. He has taken images for our blog and year book page, he has volunteered to help clean up after the school disco and he is always quick to do whatever is needed when asked. This can do attitude is what makes him a great citizen of the class.
