One Tree Hill College Senior Prizegiving 2016October 31, 2016
On Friday we held our most formal event of the school year – the One Tree Hill College Senior Prizegiving. In front of a full auditorium, we celebrated the many successes of our senior students and also said farewell to our Year 13 students. On behalf of the entire One Tree Hill College community, I would like to congratulate all award winners and wish our Year 13 students every success as they begin their journey beyond school.
The college’s most supreme awards are our Dux awards. The Dux Litterarum, for our top overall academic student, was Jonathan Abiad. Our Proxime Accessit, runner-up to Dux, was Karen Wang. These are both outstanding achievements from two very dedicated students.
The Dux Artium for 2016, for the greatest achievements in Arts and Culture, was awarded to Kewin Khoonthong. Our two most prestigious sporting awards are our Dux Ludorum for top male and female students. This year, these were awarded to Antonio Vila and Anania Piri respectively.
At the ceremony, our Prefect team for 2017 was also announced and I congratulate them for their selection. The Prefects for 2017 are Jayden Downs, Prashneel Roy, Peti Steedman-Hunt, Jez Reguerra, Ishwanka Sharma, Jason Tran, Kevin Guo, Rocielli Fernando, Anahera Hunter, Preme Hentua, Denise Dazo, Natasha Follows, Emma Hookings, Aila Pacis, James Paongo, Dolly Niuhulu, Dean Par, Antonio Vila, Kaizer Torillo and Theresa Cacilac.
