Congratulations Teah Dorman (Kwong Lee Dow Young Scholars Program)

Congratulations to Teah Dorman, who was accepted into the Kwong Lee Dow Young Scholars Program at the University of Melbourne. This program is designed to support high achieving Secondary School students and aims to give students a ‘head start’ on their future studies and career.

The University of Melbourne received 1500 applications; highlighting the competitive nature of the program. Teah is a very worthy recipient and I commend her for her focus to achieving excellent academic results and being an engaged member of society.

I would also like to congratulate Isobel (Bella) Arnold, Daksh Singh and Shannon Bardou on their nominations to the program. Their nominations similarly acknowledge their academic and extra-curricular achievements. Well done!

Exploring career & course options (webinars) 

Tertiary providers have continued to adapt their delivery to meet the needs of Victorian Secondary School students. Several universities and TAFE’s are offering free webinars to support students with exploring career and course options. I would strongly encourage students (and their parents/guardians) to engage with these valuable resources.

The hard work puts you where the good luck can find you…. 

I would like to take this opportunity to wish our current Year 12 students all the best with their transition from Casey Grammar to further study and/or employment on completion of their VCE studies. It has been an absolute pleasure getting to know you all and I wish you every success. I am very proud of what you have all achieved in 2020. It has been a challenging year, but I am so impressed by the resilience you have all demonstrated. Please remember, my office door is always open to you and although you may no longer be a student at the school, you are very much a part of the school community. Further information regarding my availability in December and January will be provided ASAP. Please remember…. Success looks different for everyone. Your school results are not your future; there are many more important determinants of success and happiness in life. Please take the time to define what success looks like for you as an individual and set goal/s to achieve this. All the best to our 2020 Year 12s.

Mrs Sarah Blythman

Head of Careers and Student Pathways
