Top ATAR Score for 2020

Congratulations to our 2020 School DUX Hannah Underwood who received an ATAR of 96.50!  Hannah is a RIA Music Specialism student, 2020 East School Vice-Captain, Production Lead and came second place in last year’s Rowville’s Got Talent.

“In a year like no other- Hannah’s ATAR score is a testament to her courage, resilience and determination. To achieve such an outstanding result from a combination of subjects that are traditionally scaled down is incredibly challenging. At the same time, Hannah dedicated herself to her role as RSC Vice-Captain and her leadership made a difference to our whole school community. I couldn’t be more proud!” – Ms. Julie Kennedy, Principal.

We interviewed Hannah and here’s what she had to say:

How are you feeling?
It was definitely a bit of a shock! I completed mostly arts subjects which are not generally associated with a high ATAR, so it was a really nice surprise to see that my hard work paid off.

What are you planning to do next year?
This year I will be completing a one-year Musical Theatre course at Associated Studios which I am hoping will prepare me for a Bachelor of Musical Theatre later on.

What are your future goals?
I hope to become a professional performer, specifically in musical theatre. I also really enjoy song writing, so that is another possibility.

Is there anyone at RSC you would like to thank?
I have had some amazing teachers throughout my time at Rowville, I specifically want to thank my VCE teachers; Mr. Johnson, Ms. Hocking, Ms. Lowes, Mr. Lowes, Ms. Lasorella and Leonie. Especially throughout remote learning they were so supportive and accommodating. I wouldn’t have achieved the results I did without their help and dedication.

What are the 3 best things about going to school at RSC?
1. The production program!
2. The supportive teachers.
3. The different programs that provide so many different opportunities and really let you pursue something you are passionate about.

How would you sum up 2020?
2020 was hectic and unlike any other year, but I think our year level made the best of the situation and still persevered in these crazy and unusual circumstances. By doing Year 12 in 2020, I think the extra challenges it created have forced me to become a much more flexible and independent learner.
