Congratulations to Arielle Traub for her outstanding achievements.

She achieved Senior Full Colours for academic, cultural (public speaking) and service. She has excelled in public speaking since grade 8. Proficient in both forum and individual oratory, she can always be relied upon to deliver entertaining, thought-provoking speeches.

She consistently achieved outstanding results in the Eisteddfod competitions. For her skilled oratory she was awarded Senior Full Colours for public speaking in grade 11.

In the academic arena, Arielle is very organised and ensures that she manages her tasks well while exceeding the academic requirements set. This has resulted in her being placed in the top 20 for the past four years and achieving Senior Full Academic Colours.

Despite her academic achievements, Arielle remains humble. Her kind and caring nature has steered her towards community service with an involvement in Interact where she served the school and community for the past four years. She was elected as chairman of the Interact board.

She has spent hours involving herself in many community and college service projects. During her tenure, she was involved at the Ark Animal Centre, assisted grade 1 learners at Crawford Preparatory Aftercare and managed the “Stop Hunger” project.

She has spent many weekends and afternoons in the Pick n Pick collections, making sandwiches, doing peer-to peer-teaching and rendering first aid at various college sports activities. For this she was awarded Senior Full Colours.

It is truly a remarkable feat to earn Senior Full Colours in no fewer than three separate disciplines.
