Awards for Students
Recognition of Excellence
In 2018 UCSSC Lake Ginninderra College redesigned the award system to better recognise the achievement of our students.
These awards will be given to students who embody our school ethos. We at UCSSC Lake Ginninderra define excellence through the desire, capacity and motivation of a student to achieve personal best.
Excellence is seen every day at UCSSC Lake Ginninderra through students pursuing their passions, leading our school community and continuously striving to excel in their intellectual, creative or artistic capacity, or in specific academic fields.
We wish to celebrate and support students who are curious about the world, who have the desire to learn and who are leaders within our community.
