Today the College celebrated the academic successes of 2016 with a special Assembly in the Christian Brothers’ Conference Centre.

Ten of the 11 boys who achieved an OP1 last year returned to the College for the presentations.

Last year’s Vice Captain Lewis Begg, who was among the OP1s, spoke at the Assembly about striving for academic excellence.

Making use of your Google Calendar and balancing out your studies with extra-curricular activities were a couple of his top tips.

In addition to acknowledging the success of last year’s Seniors, 278 boys received a gold, silver or bronze academic medal.
