Lufang Chen received the Flinders University International Student Transition Award and Ji Yeon Bae accepted a certificate of achievement at a ceremony in February. The students received $1000 and $500 respectively for their high grade point average during their first year of university last year. St Aloysius College Principal Sister Judith Redden said it was an "honour" to have two former students among the university's top ten international students. "The girls have done so well in their transition from secondary to tertiary study and we are so proud of them." Apprentice jockey Jordan Frew has ridden his way to a scholarship to Marcellin Technical College where he will undertake SACE studies while also participating in the Thoroughbred Racing SA Apprentice Academy. Frew finished on top of the points ladder in the inaugural Marcellin Technical College Apprentice Series, which incorporated five Apprentice Riders Only races at the Strathalbyn race track in February and March. The $2,000 scholarship is just one of a number of initiatives developed as part of a unique partnership between the College and the Academy to benefit the apprentices by providing them with an appropriate work/study balance. Principal Jim Fenoughty said it was important for apprentices to keep their options open in terms of career pathways, particularly in the event of injury or changed circumstances. Under the guidance of the College's SACE co-ordinator Gianni Petrucci, the partnership enables the apprentices to undertake SACE studies at Morphettville Racecourse where the Academy is based.
