At our Academic Awards assembly, we celebrated the pursuit of academic excellence as we acknowledged the achievements of our students who studied a Unit 3 and 4 VCE Subject last year.
We also heard from the 2018 College Dux, Nicole Nabbout, who attained an ATAR of 98.65. She began her speech with gratitude:
“It is the greatest privilege to be standing before you all as the College Dux of 2018. To attain this achievement is not a feat that can, or should, be attempted alone. There is one very important saying that remains ever so relevant to my schooling journey and it reads as follows, “If I have ever seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.” These words recognise the contributions of others to our own success. There were, in fact, many people who tirelessly supported, guided and shaped me throughout my years at Mercy, and it is today that I would like to thank them.”
