Cree is known for his quiet determination and positive leadership skills.

"While Cree has what might be best described as a quiet personality, because of his ability to relate to other people in a respectful and caring manner, he is actually a forceful role model. He respects other individuals. In return, he is highly respected by his peers and students across all year levels. Young men and adults have absolute faith in the fact that Cree will always consider their needs before their own." said Principal Greg Mackle.

Cree has contributed significantly to school life as a prefect, a member of the choir and cultural group, and representing the school in rugby. He is very committed to achieving his academic potential and is working towards his long-held ambition of studying law.
