At the conclusion of last year, I received the Penola House captain role for 2022. Through the support of all teachers at Mary MacKillop College (MMC) – especially Ms Griffiths and Ms Devine – they were all imperative to ensure I could achieve my best in my curricular and extra-curricular activities across my senior schooling.
In achieving the House captain role, I was able to, alongside my co-captain, achieve greatness within a small community of MMC. This role has enabled me to grow into supporting those in need, especially with our initiative to begin work with Youngcare. I was able to encompass compassion, integrity, and gratitude with influence from those around me, especially my friends who have shaped me into the person I am today.
While embarking on an ATAR pathway, I was able to overcome many obstacles across senior schooling including ACL reconstruction surgery. This time was challenging as I was disconnected from friends and schooling, although this was a time of uncertainty, I was able to confront the challenges and achieve greatness in my five general subjects – General Mathematics, English, Study of Religion, Physical Education and Biology, while also completing a Certificate III in Health Services Assistance.
