We are proud to extend our congratulations and recognition to Lua Pellegrini, Class of 2019, who was acknowledged by NESA on Friday, 12 March at the AGM of the Aboriginal Education Consultative Group.  Lua received an award from NESA for her achievement as the highest ranking Aboriginal student in NSW in Aboriginal Studies in 2019.  The award ceremony was unable to take place in 2020 because of Covid-19, but we were thrilled to attend the evening this year and recognise Lua’s achievements with her and her parents. 

Lua also addressed the audience on the evening, sharing her own experiences about the power of Aboriginal Studies as a subject area and the value that she places on her educational experiences as a whole.  Lua also graciously demonstrated her gratitude to her teacher of Aboriginal Studies, Mr Tim Lennon, and thanked the school community by donating her prize cheque to the Loreto Normanhurst Bursary Fund.  We thank Lua for her generosity and want to extend our congratulations to her again – we are very proud of her and all of her achievements.
