Grade 12 Achievements
The Launceston Church Grammar School community congratulate the Class of 2021 for all that they have achieved individually and collectively.
Academic goals set by students have been achieved thanks to their focused efforts and the support staff have provided throughout students’ time at Launceston Grammar.
Five students found out this week that they have placed in the State’s Top 100: Emily Fryett; Stuart Stenton; Thirisha Radhakrishnan; Lakshana Sankaramoorhy; and Emma Smallwood.
Furthermore, 21% of students received an ATAR of 95+ and 49% of students received an ATAR of 85+.
On the sporting field this year, Grade 12 students were part of the 1st Girls’ Soccer team, who won their third State Premiership this year. On the stage, students transported us to the 1940s for the musical production of Carry On. In Poimena Art Centre, six students produced work that has been selected for Art Rage.
Together, Grade 12 completed the Walkathon over the course of 24 hours and 80 km, students raised over $70 000 which Cancer Council Tasmania has described as its largest-ever community fundraising donation.
The contribution of the Class of 2021 to our School and local community has been outstanding and gives us all great hope for the future. In the years ahead, we look forward to seeing how Grade 12 go on to serve and shape our community and our world.
The School Holidays commenced with our 17th annual Sony Holiday Camp, a successful rowing regatta at Lake Barrington and the commencement of some significant maintenance projects.
New equipment has already been installed in the Boarding House kitchen, the Learning Hub refurbishment is almost complete and preparation is underway for the replacement of the hall roof in early January.
Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone impacted by yesterday’s tragedy at Hillcrest Primary School. The loss families and the community have experienced is incomprehensible and if you or anyone in your family needs support, please reach out to me or Heads of Campus.
From mid-way through next week, all staff will be taking a well-earned rest until 10 January. I also hope that over the coming weeks you and your whole family will be able to enjoy a refreshing and peaceful Christmas.
