Grad­u­at­ing Grade: 12

“The im­ple­mented house sys­tem (like in Harry Potter) has al­lowed me to in­ter­act and be­friend dif­fer­ent peo­ple.”

How do you think Hawthorn School has pre­pared you

for life af­ter grad­u­a­tion? Hawthorn has moulded me to be­come a very well-rounded in­di­vid­ual. The in­ter­dis­c­plinary pro­gram has en­light­ened me aca­dem­i­cally, as well as im­proved my per­sonal char­ac­ter through virtue. Their extracurriculars have fur­ther pushed me to im­prove my pub­lic skills and so­cial skills. What will you miss most about Hawthorn School? I will miss the fa­mil­ial en­vi­ron­ment at Hawthorn. Some of the most whole­some friend­ships I have made at Hawthorn were through my house, and even af­ter their grad­u­a­tions, they con­tinue to sup­port me to this day. What was your big­gest ac­com­plish­ment to date? Over­com­ing my fear of pub­lic speak­ing has prob­a­bly been one of my big­gest ac­com­plish­ments. Over­time, I've grown more com­fort­able talk­ing in front of oth­ers and be­gun to feel more at ease on the stage. What ad­vice would you give to new stu­dents on how to get the most out of their time at Hawthorn School? New stu­dents should get to know them­selves bet­ter. Study­ing is a very in­di­vid­ual ex­pe­ri­ence.
