DUX 2021 Maffra Secondary College
Maffra Secondary College is proud to announce our 2021 Dux – Joshua Caithness, who has graduated with an ATAR of 95.55
“This year has been absolutely incredible. I couldn’t have done it without all of my super supportive teachers and family, and definitely not without my inspiring and ultra-competitive peers. I am really excited to relocate interstate next year” said Josh.
Josh worked consistently during his VCE despite the difficulties associated with remote learning due to COVID-19, and the College is delighted that his great attitude to study has paid off. He has been an excellent role model for other students. We wish him all the best with his future endeavours.
As the Principal, I am so proud of all of our Year 12 students. They have faced the challenges associated with remote and flexible learning throughout their final 2 years of secondary school education with resilience and persistence.
As a cohort they have developed strong connections and have maintained unwavering support for each other, both academically and perhaps more importantly, emotionally throughout the year. These personal attributes have allowed them to look out for each other and, no matter their pathway or what their futures bring, we are confident that these young adults will succeed in life.
Collectively, we have seen our results improve significantly in many areas this year and we will continue to build on this. We could not be happier for Josh, who has actively demonstrated our school values of Respect, Community, Resilience and Learning. He has a very clear pathway for his future and we wish him all the success with this.
The College’s 2021 VCE results have increased across the board, with a new median study score of 28. One in every seven students achieved an ATAR above 90. MSC is very proud of our entire school leaving cohort, who have worked very hard and will go on to access a broad range of pathways, both vocational and academic. The majority of our VCAL students have secured great apprenticeships, due to the broad range of learning experiences and skills they have gained through our applied learning programs and structured work placements. The College excels in producing young people who are well-rounded, resilient, community-minded and passionate about their futures.
A very positive ending to a challenging year for many people. I wish you all very Merry Christmas and a safe New Year.
Ms. Jennifer Roep
