A desire to give back and help support both his family and his community is the motivation behind Deniro's ambition to study law.
"Deniro consistently displays strong communication and interpersonal skills and has a particular flair for public speaking. Deniro's mature outlook and ability to prioritise sees him continually contributing to all aspects of school life, balancing his academic endeavours and sport," said Principal Deidre Shea.
Deniro has been a part of the PILOT programme and was the recipient of a Prefect Award for displaying strong leadership qualities.
Outside the classroom he is very involved with his church, singing in the choir and as captain of the basketball team.
