Students honoured at annual Laureate Assembly

Congratulations to all the students who were formally recognised at our Laureate Assembly.

Speaking at the assembly, Principal David Ruggiero challenged all Blackfriars students to “make a difference in this world”.

“As young men, you have been given a great gift: the gift of a Blackfriars education and the opportunity to make a difference in the world,” Mr Ruggiero told the assembly.

“With this gift comes a responsibility. You must use your education and your talents to serve others, to make the world a better place and to uphold the values of our Catholic faith.

“So, as we celebrate your academic achievements today, I challenge you to think beyond yourself and to consider how you can use your talents and skills to make a difference in the world. Don’t rush into quick fixes, but use your skills to create a revolution.

“May you be courageous in your ideas, but also may you be humble in your service to others and passionate in your constant pursuit of the truth. May you be a truthful man for others in all that you do.

“Thank you, and congratulations to all of our award recipients.”
