DISCOVER THE DOWNLANDS DIFFERENCE
Described by one of her teachers as a ‘once in a generation student’, Zoë Hulme-peake (the 2018 Dux of Downlands College) finished Year 12 with the impressive result of a Very High Achievement (VHA) in eight OP subjects.
The completion of eight OP subjects is a laudable achievement and it’s worth noting that five of Zoë’s VHA results are VHA10S; the highest possible result in a Queensland OP subject.
She is a young scholar who delights in (and makes sense of the intriguing interplay of science and the arts).
Attending the 2018 National Youth Science Forum (NYSF) was a life–changing experience for Zoë and she will return as a mentor in 2019.
Zoë is passionate about making the world a nicer place.
She has many ideas and possibilities for the future, including the pursuit of Philosophy at Cambridge University, where she attended an interview in early December.
Being offered an interview with this prestigious University is quite an honour and we wish Zoë all the best at whatever she chooses to do next.
Owned and conducted by the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart (MSC), Downlands is an independent Catholic co–educational day and boarding school for students from Years 4 to 12.
The College is committed to developing well–rounded individuals, nurturing each student not just academically, but as a whole person.
There is a special culture at Downlands, which inspires teachers and students alike to use their one precious life to make our world a better place.
