Rewarding commitment

Students at CBC are always called to strive for their best, no matter what they're doing.

CBC Fremantle gathered this morning to showcase gentlemen who have shown exceptional commitment to achieving their best in the first half of this year.

Opening the assembly, Principal Domenic Burgio encouraged students to consider whether they only seek the fruits of CBC, or whether they also share the College's roots.

Mr Burgio called on students to continually reflect on their commitment to their school, and whether there is more they could be doing to better themselves as they move towards graduation.

The assembly recognised students who have achieved Certificates of Excellence across their Semester 1 reports by showing continued resolve to achieve their best across all of their subjects.

Year 7 students who have excelled in their first terms of high school were welcomed into the College's Academic Excellence Programme, and presented with badges and certificates.

Members of CBC's passionate Debating team were also acknowledged at the assembly for the time and effort they spent preparing inspiring debates over the year.

Year 12 students working towards Certificate IV as part of the College's vocational studies were presented to the assembly, showcasing not only the self-discipline they demonstrate, but also CBC's commitment to support all students no matter what path they take to graduation.

A group of outstanding Science students were also presented with certificates at the assembly for achieving Distinctions and High Distinctions in international Science competitions.

The College's Jazz Orchestra rounded out the morning, performing some new tunes as they prepare to represent CBC in this year's Catholic Performing Arts Festival.

A commitment to achieving one's best is a core attribute of the CBC gentleman and is encouraged in all facets of College life.
