Across two events on Friday, Sheldon College celebrated the academic and cultural achievements of our students throughout 2022. The Celebration of Learning on Friday morning saw students from Prep to Year 4 recognised for their individual efforts in academic pursuits, while the Celebration of Excellence was hosted in the evening in recognition of the outstanding academic and cultural successes of students in Years 5 to 12.

This year, there were again a number of high achieving students who deserved public recognition for ongoing dedication to their studies.

The pinnacle of event was the announcement of the 2022 Sheldon College DUX - Year 12 student, Brandon Keel. During his time at the College Brandon has worked incredibly hard and has demonstrated enormous dedication to all his academic pursuits.

We implore you to continue to set the bar high for yourselves and use each day as an opportunity to better yourself, your knowledge and your capabilities.
