Our annual Student Achievement Presentation Evening could not go ahead in its usual format, due to health regulations. Instead we invited a representative from our partner/sponsor organisations to present certificates and Awards to the successful students. We are deeply grateful to these supportive organisations for their ongoing support of our School and our students.
Rutherglen Rotary Club President Jim Maden presented Molly Wileman, Dharma Kotzur and Miranda Pleming with Rotary Club of Rutherglen Bursaries. Rutherglen RSL Sub-Branch President Craig Williams presented Australian Defence Force Awards in two separate categories: Joseph Brooks and Rose Hymus for ‘Leadership & Teamwork’; Riley Welsh and Sarah White for ‘Future Innovators’.
Bill Black and Mark Enshaw presented Freemasons Foundation of Victoria and Rutherglen Masonic Lodge Bursaries to Alexis Heath, Cody Hawking, Brooke Smith and Elijah Wright. Christine Scott presented the aRts Rutherglen Prize to Hataichanok Tubsang to support future studies in Art subjects. Kristy Davies presented the Potts & Schnelle Bursary for outstanding student in Business and/or Commerce subjects to Jasmine Exton.
Also presented were: Tara Storer, Rutherglen Garden Club Award for outstanding work in VET Hospitality; Riley Welsh, Melbourne University’s Kwong Lee Dow Young Scholars Award to encourage students to pursue tertiary studies particularly STEM subjects; Lilly Ciufici and Brialeigh King, Charles Sturt University Academic Encouragement Awards; Jesher Keys and Mia Reeves, Bursaries sponsored by Jaspers Buslines; Giselle Branella, Bursary sponsored by Fallon’s Bus Services; Sarah White, All-Rounder Award for work in class and a range of co-curricular activities.
Once again we thank the various community partners and organisations that make these Awards (and several thousand dollars in total) available to our students. Investing in our young people is the best investment in our future. We are all immensely proud of our students. Thank you, and congratulations to everyone involved. More photos can be found in our School newsletter via the RHS website.

They then presented 2021 Captains Dharma Kotzur and Miranda Pleming and Vice Captains Bylee Allison and Magnus Burt-Douglas with the badges of office.
