College and Berwick Dux
College Dux Ruby Van Beveren studied English, Chemistry, Mathematical Methods, Specialist Mathematics, French and Biology (in 2022).
She was up bright and early to look at her results, which came through on email early at 6.50am.
“It took me by surprise but it was very, very exciting,” said Ruby, who now hopes to do a double degree in biomedicine and engineering at Monash University.
Ruby was a school captain in 2023 and as a French student, travelled on an exchange program to Laval, France in term 1. That meant that she was a reciprocal host for her French student for three weeks in October, despite it being right in the middle of exam study period.
“I sat down a couple of weeks before she arrived and planned out everything so I would still be able to spend time with her,” she said.
