We were delighted by news that two of our graduates have received scholarships to university. 2019 graduate Zofia Kolodziej, pictured, is awaiting the outcome of her Permanent Residency application and so needed to cover her own university fees for the Bachelor of Creative Industries degree she began last week. Fortunately, she won a 25% Flinders ‘Go Beyond Excellence’ Scholarship. Additional funds were raised by Zofia’s family, Zofia herself, and her GoFundMe initiative.
Triniti Canini, pictured, gained a scholarship from the Wyatt Trust Fund for $7500 to assist with his studies at the Conservatorium of Music this year at Adelaide University. We are thrilled to see these two talented and creative graduates of WHS begin their further education journey; both are fitting recipients of the scholarships they have received.
2019 graduate Louis Potter, pictured, addressed our Year 11 and 12 students during Pathways this week about the state conference he has organised for UN Youth SA in May. The theme of the conference is Health, and Lou has secured Professor Nicola Spurrier as the keynote speaker. The conference will feature interactive workshops and model a United Nations debate. One Year 12, three Year 11s and two International students have signed up for the conference. Lou is currently in his second year at the University of Adelaide, studying for a Bachelor of Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
