We congratulate most especially Stella Que, Dux of 2014, for achieving an ATAR of 99.80.

Camberwell Grammar is also celebrating outstanding VCE results, with 18 students scoring 99 or above on the ATAR scores which were released this morning.
Fifty-one per cent of all year 12s at the school scored greater than 90, with dux Patrick Lu one of just 33 students across the state with a perfect 99.95.
Patrick, who plans to study medicine at Monash University, said it was a dream come true to see his score.
“I’m thrilled, I didn’t expect that at all,” he said.
Patrick completed his studies across two years and said the key to his success was a work-life balance.
“Obviously when you’re in year 12, there’s a lot of people who turn 18, so you get invites to parties.”
“You need a balance. I’ve been involved in sport and music and debating, just keeping involved in lots of activities helps to keep you fresh.”
School captain Richard Lee also was another student to score over 99, registering 99.1.
He said he was keen to study finance and commerce.
“It’s been quite a big year, there’s been a lot going on,” Richard said.
“There’s been a lot of time organising events, keeping up with all the year levels throughout the school and being involved in as much as I can.”
Richard said the key to Camberwell Grammar’s success lay in the support from the teachers.
“We’ve been doing exams since year 7, so we know what to expect and how things run,” he said.
“Also there are so many opportunities and activities we can get involved in. The school and the teachers have been very nurturing to all of us.”
