Six of the 21 Gold Award winners for 2010 were from St Aloysius College (SAC) and Christian Brothers College (CBC) in Adelaide. The students were presented with their awards by South Australian Governor His Excellency Rear Admiral Kevin Scarce AC at a ceremony at Government House in May. To meet the 2010 award criteria, Lachlan Graham and Luke Davis (both Year 12 students at CBC last year) travelled to Vietnam to volunteer at an orphanage for 15 days. At SAC, students Natalie Carfora, Nicole Clohessy, Rosa Ockleshaw and Kate Riggs spent time at the remote indigenous communities of the APY Lands, in the far north of the state and the Tiwi Islands, about 40km north of Darwin. CBC Duke of Edinburgh Awards coordinator Colin Cunrow said the international program gave students important life skills, boosted their self esteem and helped them form long lasting relationships with the wider community while gaining vital credits for the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE). "It is such a distinguished reference and testimony to the quality and character of the students who have won the Gold Award," said Mr Cunrow. Alan Brown, Duke of Edinburgh coordinator for SAC, said the program was very popular with students at the school. He said eight students were expected to qualify for the Gold Award at the end of the year, while there were currently 200 students involved in the program across the college. "The Duke of Edinburgh program gives students a better sense of self awareness and giving back to the community," said Mr Brown. "Parents of students involved in the program have noticed a difference in their child's self esteem and confidence," he said. VIP VISIT: Students from Stella Maris Catholic School, at Seacombe Gardens, welcomed a special visitor on Friday, May 27. Premier Mike Rann toured the school with local Member for Mitchell Alan Sibbons. The Premier and Mr Sibbons were shown the school's facilities and educational programs. Principal Sean Hill said the Premier met and spoke with each class, answering many creative questions and asking some of his own. Mr Rann is pictured with Jaiden and other Year 1 students.
