Nine students with perfect GPA’s of 7.0

A highlight each year is the Academic Dinner which was held on Tuesday 25 August. The guest speaker for this year’s Academic Dinner was Professor Tamara Davis from the School of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Queensland. Professor Davis provided some inspirational thoughts based on her work as an Astrophysicist and certainly challenged all in attendance to follow a course of study or interest that they are passionate about. Cromwell College remains indebted to the many generous benefactors who donate awards and prizes to the students.
