THEY hail from wide and varied backgrounds but our youngest academic stars came together as one yesterday to celebrate a remarkable achievement.
Included among the 25 Year 12 students to earn a Governor of South Australia commendation was Aboriginal student Lakkari Rigney – the first time an indigenous person has received top honours.
The award recognised students who received an A-plus with merit in at least four Year 12 subjects, plus the research project, as well as other high achievers who displayed the qualities young people need for community life, citizenship and work.
A panel selected award recipients from among the 13,404 students who completed the SACE this year and received results yesterday.
