Catherine McAuley Excellence Awards

Recognising excellence across all aspects of college life motivates and inspires our students to achieve more. The Catherine McAuley Excellence Awards acknowledge and reward the desire to excel whilst living our Mercy Values. The program consists of the Virtue Conquers Achievement Awards and the Principal’s Award.

Virtue Conquers Achievement Awards

Led by our motto, ‘Virtue Conquers’, our young people work towards their individual goals with the responsibility of representing the college as they strive to achieve.

Those who exemplify our Mercy Values receive certificates in four areas:

Academic Excellence

Leadership in Sports

Community Service

Creative Endeavour

 

Those students who receive certificates across all areas are eligible to receive gold, silver, and bronze Virtue Conquers badges.

Awards for Sport

St Joseph’s College students also represent our college on the sporting field as they do in both the classroom and the community. Whether in school or outside of school, all students who play sport should display sportsmanship and behaviour aligned with our Mercy Values. To celebrate sporting achievement, any student who has excelled in their chosen sport(s) can be nominated for awards throughout the year.
