Cassandra Tenthy and Ana Daniels were selected to be exhibited in the Creative Generations Excellence Awards in Maryborough. To be selected for this exhibition students have to have achieved a VHA overall and be endorsed by the school to meet a series of selection criteria.

From this exhibition Ana Daniels has achieved an excellence award and been selected to exhibit her work in the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane next year.
