College Captains 2021

Lucy Williams & Alisha Nurnaitis

For 2021, we have been given the amazing opportunity to represent our school as College Captains and fundamentally listen to and amplify the voice of each individual of our growing Clonard family.

We feel proud to put on our school uniform every day knowing that we are wearing the emblem of a school that lets us express our individuality, supports our passions, and encourages us to strive towards being the best versions of ourselves.

We love that this role gives us the chance to influence Clonard, and help it work towards a brighter future. A future where we not only read textbooks to enhance our academic knowledge but where we also learn about how we can each make the world a better place.

Our 2021 leadership team is filled with incredible young women who all bring personal zest to their roles which cover all aspects of Clonard, including sports, academics, the arts, social justice, sustainability, and health and wellbeing (just to name a few).

 


As we reflect on our team and all the support we are being provided in this role, we can’t help but feel confident that the year ahead will be amazing, filled with not only new opportunities but also challenges. We are ready to embrace 2021 with open arms. Cheers to a new year!

2020 DUX recipient - Sidney Hoei

An excerpt from Sidney’s DUX speech.

Clonard has been the best community to me – I owe so much of what I’ve achieved here to the people who have helped me, taught me, encouraged me and pushed me to do my best.

I would like to offer some wisdom to the Class of 2021 and the rest of Clonard’s students, but it took me too long to realise that there is no ‘secret’ to a high ATAR or a good study score or even enjoying Year 12.

All I did was show up, choose subjects I enjoyed, spend time with my friends and work hard. For me, knowing I had done my best and seeing it pay off was the perfect close to my time at Clonard.

I am sure you will make your own memories, you will learn your own lessons, you will struggle to pick out a single piece of your own advice to leave behind when you have learnt so much more than you can say in a minute or two, but I wish you all the best here at Clonard. I hope you are as excited as I am for what is in front of us.
