Katan­ning Se­nior High School stu­dent Asy­i­lah Im­ran, 17, was named gen­eral dux while Sa­muel Sloan, 17, was named dux for aca­demic re­sults.

Katan­ning Se­nior High marked its Year 12 awards night with cheers and ap­plause as the com­mu­nity cel­e­brated the achieve­ments of the school’s se­nior stu­dents.

The event recog­nised KSHS’ high achiev­ers and cel­e­brated the com­ple­tion of their se­condary ed­u­ca­tion for all the Year 12 stu­dents.

Prin­ci­pal Carolyn Cook said the class of 2018 was filled with in­spir­ing and hard-work­ing young peo­ple.

“It’s a fan­tas­tic night where we cel­e­brate all the work that the Year 12s do over the course of their stud­ies,” she said.

Sa­muel Sloan, 17, was pre­sented with the dux award on the night for stel­lar re­sults in all his ATAR cour­ses.

He said study­ing for the ATAR had been a stress­ful and emo­tion­ally drain­ing ex­pe­ri­ence but the re­wards were worth the strug­gle.

Sa­muel re­ceived a $1000 prize for be­ing named dux. He said he would put it to­wards his plan for a ca­reer in the mil­i­tary and com­plet­ing a uni­ver­sity de­gree in Can­berra.

Asy­i­lah Im­ran, 17, re­ceived the gen­eral dux award for her re­sults in all her cour­ses.

The stu­dents gave credit to their teach­ers, par­ents, guardians, friends and any­one else who con­trib­uted to­wards their mak­ing it through high school.
