Top students named

MILES State High School celebrated student achievements at its annual awards night last month.

Principal Josette Moffatt said the night was a chance to recognise academic, sporting, and cultural excellence.

"When you look at our awards night, the great thing about that night, it's a celebration of our students' achievements... but it's (also) the biggest opportunity for the whole community to be together,” Mrs Moffatt said.

"We hold it in the Leichhardt Centre, we hold it in the centre of the community... for us it symbolises our partnership in learning.

"This year was our review year, so for me it's a year where you look at the last four years, and you celebrate that, and you plan for the future.”

Mrs Moffatt said she wanted to congratulate Year 12 Dux Brittany Gorry, a "highly dedicated and aspirational student”, for her outstanding effort this year.

The awards night also included the announcement of the school's 2018 student leaders, including school captains.

Mrs Moffatt said the students represented the school values of respect, integrity, safety and engage (RISE).

"Our captains, we're very excited, we have just an excellent group of students that we know are basically the epitome of role modelling our school values,” she said.
