College Leadership Award 

St Dominic’s College has a broad range of leaders, which means there are many students

to be considered for this Award. We see students who lead in the classroom,

on a sporting field and in the area of social justice within the community.

 Academic Excellence Award 

Not to be confused with the title of College Dux – which is awarded once the ATAR’s have been received; this award is calculated using a points

system based upon the student’s rankings in across the suite of HSC courses studied.

The recipient of this award is to be commended, especially throughout this year due to the enforcement of online learning

where he continually displayed an exemplary work ethic, positive attitude, resilience and exceptional

application to his studies which have obviously led to outstanding results thus far. We have already witnessed this

level of commitment this evening as he has been awarded first in course for five out of his six courses studied.
