Academic Excellence Award

Our Star Award for Academic Excellence recognises the very best performances from candidates in the 2011 exams for National Courses.

Gavin was one of the most outstanding students St Aloysius’ has had. He was a pupil for 15 years, first joining the school in kindergarten.

The breadth of his academic interests is astounding and he could have pursued any subject to the highest level. He is a brilliant mathematician, scientist and linguist. At the same time he is very modest, without any hint of arrogance. Everyone likes Gavin and understandably so because he is friendly, helpful, kind, calm and funny. Not only is he a great student, he is a great person as well.

Winner: Gavin Macauley, St Aloysius' College
