Well done to all the Blackfriars students who have demonstrated significant commitment to the four pillars of Dominican life – prayer, study, community and service – throughout 2022.
Speaking at one of the final assemblies for the school year, Principal David Ruggiero urged all students to work to “aspire to be the best you can be”.
“I recently bought a Lego Transformer of Optimus Prime,” Mr Ruggiero told the assembly.
“Optimus Prime, if you don’t know much about Transformers, is Latin for being the best that you can be, the best person you can be.
“And his message to everyone is to be the best version of yourself. By being you, our world has a future. You don’t need to achieve a 99.5 (ATAR), you just have to do the best that you can with your skills and abilities.”
Wishing all our students a happy, fun and successful 2023.
