Student excellence honoured
PROUD parents joined with students and teaching staff last week to recognise academic, creative and sporting excellence at Coolum High School.
Principal Lee Goosens reminded students at the school's annual awards night of Aristotle's notion that excellence was not an act but a habit.
Mr Goosens said Coolum High was a learning environment for a 21st century future, "with a strong commitment to nurturing constructive relationships which underpin the heart and smart of our values".
Parents were treated to performances by the school band, Fusion, and individual students, including the senior school Musician of the Year Ryan Stewart.
School captains for 2014 are Jaimi Barton and Jasper McGowan. vice-captains are Brianna Noel and Jack Aubrey.
