The College is extremely proud to share our VCE results for the graduating Class of 2022.
Our congratulations go to our wonderful Year 12 students who have displayed outstanding levels of diligence and commitment to their studies throughout the year. We are especially pleased with these results given that this cohort experienced the majority of their Senior schooling under lockdown conditions. It is a credit to the excellence and dedication of the teaching staff who have supported and educated these students for up to 13 years.
We are thrilled to announce the Dux of the College for 2022 is Jade Hansper. Jade received an ATAR of 98.95, and is also Dux of Biology, Literature and German. Our congratulations go to Jade who will be continuing her studies next year at the University of Melbourne as a recipient of the University of Melbourne’s 2023 Melbourne Principals' Scholarship.
Jade joined the College as a Prep student and has held various leadership positions during her time at Overnewton, including Middle School Chapel Captain and the Student Representative Council. As an accomplished violinist, Jade has performed as part of many College ensembles and orchestras, and as a talented athlete she has represented the College at championship level for Cross Country. As a passionate advocate for inclusivity and kindness, Jade founded a new initiative at Senior School, ‘The Kindness Collective’, which empowers students to take ownership of the positive change they want see in the school community. Whilst we celebrate with Jade in her achievement of an impressive academic result, her participation in the College’s Co-Curricular program throughout her 13 year schooling journey is a true testament to the broad range of opportunities provided by an Overnewton education. We congratulate Jade for her many achievements and thank her for her service and contribution to the life of the College.
We are delighted also to share that College Captain, Kiana Dimovski, who is Dux of four subjects – Business Management, Economics, English and Geography – received a perfect score of 50 for Business Management; and Mia Paris Scalise who is Dux of two subjects – Dance and Drama – also received a perfect score of 50 for Drama.
We are proud to share that there were eight Year 12 students who received an ATAR of 90 or above. Additionally, there were seven Year 11 students participating in our accelerated VCE program who are Dux of their Year 12 subjects.
As an open entry school, Overnewton continues to offer pathways for all students to finish Year 12. Many parents agree that it is not just the ATAR score that is important to them for their child; as important are the friendships that they have made and fostered, and the College values that they can take with them from their time at Overnewton. We proudly celebrate the success of all our students who have given their best effort during their time at the College.
As educators, it is such an immense privilege to watch a child grow from Prep to Year 12, achieving their goals and graduating as empowered, thoughtful, community-minded citizens.
I am sure that all members of the Overnewton community will join us in congratulating the Class of 2022 for the completion of a fantastic year.
