There was hardly a dry eye in the house yesterday as students were celebrated at the Skillset Senior College Awards and Year 10 Graduation Ceremony.

Thirty-two year 10 students graduated from the College, with all but three planning on continuing into Year 11. Principal Mr Craig Randazzo congratulated the students on the commitment and dedication it has taken for them to successfully complete Year 10. “Each and every one of you has persevered and persisted and reaped the rewards of your efforts by being here today. I could not be more proud of you.”

Students across Years 10, 11 and 12 were also awarded faculty achievement and effort awards, with the inaugural Randazzo Award for citizenship, scholarship and leadership going to Year 12 student Corey Kovacs-Edmonds.

“Corey started with Skillset Senior College in 2015 as one of our first group of Year 10 students, and has been a model student throughout his time with us, achieving well right across all subject areas, and always embodying a positive approach to school and life, which aligns so well with our values here at Skillset”, said Skillset Manager of Education Abbey Barrett.

Another success was also celebrated this week with news of the first Skillset Senior College student being accepted into university. Elicia Dixon, one of the 2017 Year 12 students, the first Year 12 cohort through the College, has been accepted into Theatre Media at Charles Sturt University.

Skillset Senior College is an innovative Years 10 – 12 school set in an adult learning environment at the Flannery Centre. With a focus on individual well-being and achievement it is currently taking Year 10 enrolments for 2018
