Sophie Newsome was named 2013 school dux at a ceremony on Friday. Sophie received a band 6 result (more than 90 percent) in modern history, in addition to an E4 achievement (the highest band possible) in English Extension 2, and an astounding Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) of 95.3 out of 100.

2013 Glen Innes High School dux Sophie Newsome encourages younger students to take advantages of the school’s resources and to ‘be brave’.

Grace Barratt was runner-up in the dux race, with Rhiana Newberry third. Rhiana also received a band 6 achievement in Biology.

As well as the excellent overall achievements of these three young women there were five further band 6 results: Megan Core (Music I), Krystal Mather and Elsie Ley (Ancient History), and Max Malone (Mathematics Extension I and II) and Edmund Malone (notional band 6 in mathematics Extension 2). The Malone boys are only in year 10 and 9 respectively yet achieved excellent results in the demanding year 12 extension II subject.

While these students were recognised at the ceremony, the school’s overall achievement was high, scoring above the state average in 16 HSC subjects. In Mathematics extension I and II, all students were placed in the top two bands of achievement and all students studying Textiles and Design achieved a band 5 (80-89 per cent).

Of the 55 students who graduated at the end of last year (the school’s largest cohort ever), 75 per cent met the stringent HSC requirements to receive an ATAR, and all those undertaking VET (vocation education and training) assessment scored above the state average. More than half the HSC students applied for early entry to one or more tertiary institutions of their choice, and all applications were successful.

Last year’s students are now dispersing around the country and beyond. Sophie will be studying medicine in Sydney, while Grace is taking a five month break by attending school in Japan while she weights up four offers of university places.

Outside academia, 2013 year 12 adviser Mercurious Goldstein reports that filmmaker Lachlan Nagy-Friend is making waves in Sydney’s young directorial crowd, winning a third place accolade at the Martini Awards; artist Tom Ruming has a piece in Art Express; rugby league player Jay Gallagher is fulfilling his St George Under 20s contract; and Wade Campbell and Nathan Marzulli are studying exercise science.

Maddie Howard is hoping to study in Lismore to become a physical education teacher and Aimee Floyd will study Psychology at Bond University.

“I think the most satisfying thing for the school and Glen Innes community to understand is that every graduate of 2013 has found a pathway forward from school, to further develop their preferred areas of skill and interest,” principal Mike Gray said.

“This is the most important thing that we, as a comprehensive high school, can offer our young people: the promise and the opportunity to reach their potential in all areas of achievement, be they academic, practical, creative or athletic.”
