Awards for Students

Recognition of Excellence

UCSSC Lake Ginninderra College awards students who embody our school ethos. UCSSC Lake Ginninderra defines excellence as the desire, capacity and motivation of a student to achieve their personal best.

Excellence is seen every day at UCSSC Lake Ginninderra in students pursuing their passions, leading the school community and striving to excel in their intellectual, creative or artistic capacity, or in specific academic fields.
