SEHS graduate receives top award

Salisbury East High School graduate Aaron Lloyd was awarded with his Subject Merit at Government House this week.

The highly talented guitar player received his award on Tuesday, February 9th, for ‘exceptional achievement’ in SACE Stage 2 Performance Special Study, which he undertook in 2015.

Gaining an A+ in the subject and subsequently being placed in the top 5% of students in South Australia, it marked a remarkable double for Aaron as he had previously received a Subject Merit for Solo Performance in 2014.

Aaron was also the recipient of the prestigious Don Maynard Music Prize, which is given to the top student in the subject each year.

SEHS music teacher Edgell Zajac said: “Working with Aaron over the past five years has been a highly rewarding experience.

“His potential was recognised in Year 8 and his dedication to music and ability to listen to feedback, and act on it, has allowed him to achieve the high standard that he has.

“His Subject Merit Awards this year and in 2014 are very well deserved and we are extremely proud of Aaron.

“Many congratulations also go to his IMS teacher, Brett Stafford, who worked with Aaron throughout the past five years.”

Aaron was invited back to SEHS to perform two solo items in front of the whole school at an assembly during week 1 of the current term and, after obtaining an ATAR of 81.6, is now preparing to undertake a Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Adelaide.
