Angus is a fine young Kingsman who showed outstanding leadership skills as School Vice Captain, School Monitor and Britten House Captain.
Angus received the Alan Mitchell Prize for the best all round boy in the School. A naturally gifted athlete, Angus represented the School in 1st X1 Football and 3rd X1 Cricket during his senior years. He was Captain of the 1st X1 Football and Vice Captain of the AAGPS 1st XI Football team. In recognition of his achievements, he was awarded the Marconi Fairfield Cup and Football Honour Colours.
Angus was awarded Academic Full Colours and a certificate for Academic Proficiency at Graduation.
“Academics is an important aspect of the School. However, being involved in every part of the School is the mark of a true Kingsman, whether
that be on the sporting field, leading the Student Representative Council or helping those less fortunate than ourselves from a Vinnies Van on
a Friday night.”
Angus’ leadership skills also extended to The King’s School Cadet Corps, where he was promoted to the position of Cadet Under Officer.
“I’m very proud of winning the annual Platoon Competition and being awarded a medallion for service, courage and bravery whilst in the field.”
Angus will remember King’s as a healthy and hardworking environment with a culture that helped him to achieve his best.
“I will also remember Corps Camp, sitting around the campfire with mates, playing football in front of the whole School and, thanks to the boarding
environment, getting to know people from across Australia.”
He aspires to a career in finance after taking a gap year in the United Kingdom at Cumnor House, a small preparatory boarding school. In living the School values, Angus proved to be a person of great humility and honesty.
In Angus’ words, “Kingsmen are defined by their character, which is reflective of their hard work and the effort they put into all aspects of life.”
