Bourke High School Presentation Night

The Bourke High School community came together for a night of celebration at the annual Presentation Night last week, marking the culmination of a challenging year for staff and students.

Despite the adversities faced throughout 2023, the event was a testament to the resilience and achievements of the school’s dedicated individuals.

The evening showcased the outstanding accomplishments of students in various domains, including academic excellence, sports achievements, and remarkable attendance records.

Special recognition was given to students for their exceptional contributions to the school and the broader community, with awards spanning categories such as Student Representative Council (SRC), citizenship, ADF Long Tan Youth Leadership, and Future Innovators.

A significant highlight of this year’s Presentation Night was the introduction of the inaugural Sheree Bowden Community Spirit Award. This award, named in honour of the late Sheree Bowden, was presented to students who demonstrated exceptional community involvement, selflessness, and courage.

The Sheree Bowden Community Spirit Encouragement Award recipient was Kruz Ryan in Year 11. Meanwhile, the Sheree Bowden Community Spirit Award was bestowed upon Riley Parnaby in Year 10, who was a beacon of community service throughout the year.

Riley’s extensive involvement in community activities showcased his commitment to making a positive impact. []
