Mareeba High students shine at awards night
SOME of the best academic and sporting students at Mareeba State High School were recognised last week at their 63rd annual presentation night.
The night kicked off strong with students from each grade receiving awards for their best subjects and their achievements in school sporting activities.
Afterwards, bursaries and special awards were awarded to students who had gone above and beyond in their studies and extra-curricular activities.
Although the grade 12 Dux will not be determined until next year, the grade 10 and 11 Dux were awarded. Chloe McNab took out the grade 10 award and Kelli Scott and Jared Latif took home the grade 11 dux.
Making their names known in the school’s sporting scene, Meesha McCurley, Chase Sheppard and Coco Gambino all took out sports person of the year for their efforts on the field.
This year, Neve Godfrey took home the Dimbulah Lions Community Involvement award for her dedication and passion when serving her communities in both Mareeba and Dimbulah.
The Ampol Best All Rounder award is one of the highest honours to receive at the Mareeba High presentation with Coco Gambino being a well-deserved recipient.
The 2023 school leadership team was also announced with Cassia James, Jack Fealy, Lachlan Costa and Kelli Scott taking on the roles of school captain.
Tanisha Hastie and Natalia Grogan will be taking on the Indigenous leaders role, Jared Latif and Abby Campman will be stepping up as student council president and vice-president, Talisha Falvo as secretary, Matthew Heggie as treasurer and Jack Cruz taking up the new role as student voice.
All students were commended on their achievements.
