    This is the second year of the Mainfreight Award for Excellence in Attitude, which was launched in 2019. It is awarded to one senior student at each Mainfreight-sponsored school who has shown a positive attitude in all areas of school life or who has been recognised for having accomplished a major goal or made an exceptional effort at school during the year.

    The 2021 awards were presented to winning students during Term 4, 2021 Book Giving Assemblies or at graduation ceremonies. Mainfreight provided each winner with an engraved silver cup, and a certificate personally signed by Rodd Morgan, Group General Manager of Mainfreight Australia, as well as a copy of the DK Complete Atlas of the World: The Definitive View of the Earth—a complete and unrivalled portrait of the modern world.
