DIS­COVER THE DOWNLANDS DIF­FER­ENCE

Style Magazine - - Promotion -

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.
