The Karratha Clontarf Academy celebrated a year’s worth of achievements by its young men at its annual awards night.

About 180 academy members, community and corporate representatives, family members and friends attended the ceremony held at the Karratha Leisureplex late last month.

The event’s hosts were Clontarf Year 7 student Howard Namok Kennedy and Year 9’s Lawrie Tittums.

Ngurrangga Tours owner-operator Clinton Walker gave a Welcome to Country before Karratha Senior High School principal Jennifer McMahon and Clontarf Academy director Bradley Cox delivered speeches to the cohort.

In the night’s major award categories, Year 12 student Heath Hyland was named community ambassador, Ayden Saylor took home the sportsman of the year award, and Year 11 student Dylan Hansen won the Melissa Price award for leadership.

Prizes for best spirit and most outstanding were also given out in each year group from Year 7-12.

All the young men gave thank you speeches to finish off the night.
