‘Perfectionist’ is P12 College dux
BY TATE SPITERI
SELF confessed perfectionist, Fletcher Caponecchia, is Myrtleford P-12 College’s 2018 dux.
Caponecchia did not require an ATAR score for admission into the American College System where he will play soccer from August next year, but the 18-yearold is still thrilled with the result.
“I guess, in the end the ATAR didn’t mean a lot to me but it was good to get some academic recognition,” he said.
“I worked pretty hard all year but at the same time there were a few scores that I wasn’t happy with which is probably me being a perfectionist.
“I knew what was at stake really.”
Caponecchia is still undecided what course he will undertake in the United States with a range of factors still up in the air.
“It all depends on the college,” he said.
“I still haven’t made a decision where I will go but there are some offers there from some good schools.
“I did not actually take biology (in year 12) but I would like to maybe go down that path.”
Another option for Caponecchia could be something English based, after the mandatory subject turned out his best.
“That honestly surprised me, even walking out of the (English) exam I thought I did okay but not as well as I did,” Caponecchia said.
As for being the dux, the talented all-rounder was unaware until receiving a call from his mother, Danielle, who works at the school.
“The plan now is to work until August and get some money up before I head to college,” he said.
“I am happy to be in the position I am at the moment.”
HAPPY DAYS: Myrtleford P-12 College’s Fletcher Caponecchia was delighted with his ATAR score.
