Headmaster's Commendations

8.4C

Jeremiah Muir

Jeremiah has demonstrated many of the IB Learner Profiles this year, in particular, being Principled and balanced. He is an integral member of the 8C Homeroom. His friendly nature, coupled with his consideration for others, allows him to work well with all members of our class. Jeremiah has persevered with his studies this year, recognises the flaws in his learning and finds the means to overcome them. Watching Jeremiah work on the propulsion component of his Questacon "Make, Float, Move" project was quite extraordinary. He should be very proud of his effort and accomplishments this year, and continue to keep up the good work!

Jolyon Harrison-Murray

Jolyon continues to strive for excellence, both academically and in the co-curricular area of the Performing Arts. He continues to give his personal best and has done since he arrived at Scotch College. Jolyon embodies the IB learner profiles of "thinker" that is evident in the work he produces across many of his subject areas. He endeavours to expand his knowledge and will actively seek out ideas to enhance his growth as an inquirer, enhancing his ability to communicate his ideas to a variety of audiences. Jolyon has shown amazing growth throughout the year and I believe he is worthy of this Headmaster's Commendation.

Andreas an amazing asset to our Middle School. He displays many of the traits that underpin the Scotch College values. He demonstrates integrity by consistently adhering to the moral principles of the College and the wider community. Andreas serves our community when he can, using his skills and talents to care for others. Andreas can reflect upon his actions and the actions of others, showing a level of open-mindedness that I have seldom seen in a Year 7 student. Andreas is a credit to himself and his family and is a worthy recipient of a Headmaster's Commendation.
