Our Celebration Evening is a wonderful way to acknowledge the achievements of all Cornish College students in Years 5 – 12.

This year’s virtual event allowed the Cornish community to celebrate excellence demonstrated by students in disciplines including English, mathematics, sports, the arts and sciences, and also featured wonderful showcase pieces by our performing arts students.

A special thank you to the Longbeach RSL for their support of the Outstanding Citizenship Awards, to Hon Mark Dreyfus QC MP, Federal Member for Isaacs, for recognising our students’ community spirit and leadership, and Tim Richardson MP, State Member for Mordialloc, for celebrating students’ outstanding citizenship, thoughtfulness and concern for the community.

We were also thrilled to present several special awards, including the Cornish Award, two Melbourne University Awards – the Kwong Lee Dow Young Scholars Award and Melbourne Principal’s Scholarship – the Monash Scholars Award from Monash University, and the Australian Defence Force’s Future Innovators and Long Tan Awards.

The night concluded with a perennial favourite – Mr D’s slideshow of 2020 highlights.
