Cape York schools celebrate success
The annual Cape York Aboriginal Australian Academy Awards were held in late November at both our Coen and Hope Vale campuses. These awards are a chance for the school community to recognise and celebrate students’ achievements across the school year.
A number of our partners sponsored awards at the events, with O-Hub and SET providing a number of $250 cash prizes, Cape York Leadership Program provided iPads and AFL player Anthony ‘Walla’ McDonald Tipungwuti sent up some Puma gear for the sportsperson of the year award.
A big congratulations to all the students who took home awards and put in a big effort throughout 2018. Special congratulations go to the Dux of each school, the students who were awarded for the highest rank across academic, arts and sport achievement. In Coen that was Maggie Liddy and both Casiarna Bowen and Rashedah Bambie in Hope Vale.
The Academy Awards are also a great opportunity for the school community to come together and celebrate our students’ many talents. The school band, choirs and dance troupes also put on great performances.
