We celebrate four new red blazers

The five pillars of a Dainfern College education are Academics, the Cultural Arts, Sport, Service and Leadership and our holistic approach to education encourages students to embrace every opportunity on offer at the College across all disciplines.

In line with our motto of 'Celebrate' we recognise and reward students' achievements with the award of colours. The highest award that the College can bestow on a student is College Honours in the form of the Red Blazer. The Red Blazer celebrates the achievements of those exceptional students who excel across these important areas of College life, and who have achieved a minimum of full colours in at least three of these areas

On 5 December 2017 at the annual High School academic awards evening, we were deighted to award red blazers to Ilinca Stefan, Anna Moreira, Vincent Lesch and Luca du Toit. 

Here are the full citations:
