Comet Bay College held its annual Defence Families Supper recently, uniting and celebrating our Defence and cadet families.
Four students were honoured with special awards. Shaydon May (Year 11) won the Endeavour Award for being a great role model, Kyle Richardson (Year 12) was given the Community Award for his contributions to school community events and projects, and Bridget Cresswell (Year 11) took home the Volunteer Award for her help with Defence School Mentor program events.
These students received $50 cash or gift vouchers courtesy of sponsors Defence Health, Safety Bay Ex-Services and Community Club, and Comet Bay College Defence School Mentor Claire Hunt.
Ashlin Crawford (Year 10) beat a strong field of nominees to win the Resilience Award, and collected a Samsung tablet and speaker valued at $300 for his efforts, courtesy of WA Defence Issues Minister Paul Papalia SCS MLA.
Ms Hunt thanked everyone who helped to make the night a success, including student MC Shannan Marshall (Year 9), usher and sound helpers Shaydon May and Ben Wiggins, videographer JJ Dillon, and lighting, Shannen Precious. The night also included performances from Year 8 student Ollie Smith and the Military Wives Choir.
