Archbishop’s Award for Student Excellence

Congratulations to Vaiata Halaholo (Year 12) who was St Clare’s 2017 recipient for the well deserved prestigious Archbishop’s Award for Student Excellence. Vaiata received her award from the Most Reverend Anthony Fisher OP at St Mary’s Cathedral after Amy McKay (Year 11) read her citation:

Vaiata demonstrates the College motto “My God in all things” by her passion and commitment to her Catholic faith through her compassion, care and generosity towards her fellow students on a daily basis. She contributes to the Catholic life of the College by assisting with House and Homeroom liturgies, volunteering as a catechist and supporting social justice initiatives. Vaiata attends weekly Mass at St Vincent De Paul Redfern. She is an active participant in the parish Youth Group and travelled to WYD in 2016 in Krakow with her parish group.

Amy was chosen to read the citation for Vaiata due to her leadership as a Catechist at the College and her close association with Vaiata in the Homeroom class.
