As we do every year, we invite students to return to their alma mater to share with current students what they are now planning for their futures. Not all graduates are able to return but each year we hear wonderful stories about their plans and their achievements.
97% of Year 12 Highview College graduates who completed an ATAR pathway were offered places at Universities. This is a fantastic achievement.
Our 2018 Dux, Ben Evans, gave an impassioned speech urging Year 12 students to keep a healthy perspective and encouraging all students to make the most of their time at Highview College. He commended and thanked his teachers and paid homage to his peers, who were a particularly close group. We were delighted to welcome them back and share their stories.
The following students were able to attend the Assembly and shared what they would be doing next:
