THE PRESENTATION OF mementoes
to high achieving HSC 2011 students
from diocesan schools was an
opportunity, not only for the young people
to be congratulated, but also for the
contribution of their parents and teachers
to be honoured.
Principals from across the diocese
had gathered and Director of Catholic
Schools Ray Collins acknowledged the
achievements of Diocesan Dux Kristy
Everett (former student of St Clare's High
School, Taree) and those who attained
the highest Australian Tertiary Admissions
Ranks: Brigitte Holt, St Paul's High School,
Booragul (99.55); Georgia Pyne, St
Francis Xavier's College, Hamilton (99.35)
and Sebastian Howe, St Paul's (99.20).
Unfortunately Georgia was unable to
attend the ceremony.
Addressing the principals and guests,
Kristy Everett acknowledged the support
of her parents and teachers in disarmingly
honest terms: "When I think about being
first in the state for 2 Unit Studies of
Religion, equal 6th for Visual Art and first
in the diocese for Extension 1 English, I
think of all the nights procrastinating,
not doing homework and time spent on
Facebook, and I'm amazed at how I did it!"
Kristy continued, "I think thirteen years
of Catholic education taught me to find
a certain spiritual balance in life, and
friends and a part-time job kept me sane.
I felt that every teacher at St Clare's
genuinely cared for me and I know they
did their best to help me succeed."
Kristy is pursuing a Bachelor of Design
(Visual Communication) and Bachelor of
International Studies at the University
of Technology, Sydney. Brigitte has
embarked on a Bachelor of Physiotherapy
at Newcastle University, hoping eventually
to pursue Medicine. Georgia is studying
Commerce/Law at Newcastle while
Sebastian is reaching for the stars
at Macquarie University majoring
