AWARDS: St John’s Lutheran celebrates best and brightest

ST JOHN’S Lutheran School students were rewarded for their hard work and dedication this week, following one wild ride of a school year.

The school held their 2020 award presentation on Monday, with dozens of students being awarded for the academic results, community service and sporting achievements.

Speaking at the event St John’s Lutheran School Principal, Karyn Bjelke-Petersen, said kindness and working together were two important themes for the year.

“Working together means you will achieve and you will cope and you will get through, and being kind quite often costs nothing but can have a significant effect on others,” Mrs Bjelke-Petersen said.

See below for all the major award winners.
