Likely 2013 Dux Leah Rowe (middle) with her inspiring English teacher Veronica McNaught and principal Bernie Roebuck.

The top prize for a Year 12 student is based on HSC results, and the 19 year-old’s scores were among the best.

Her efforts earned her an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) of 79.45.

The aspiring teacher received her results last Wednesday morning and was ecstatic to have received band fives in four of the five subjects she completed.

‘‘I studied standard English, community and family studies, PDHPE, business and legal studies (her only band four subject).’’

The Tocumwal resident said she was looking forward to experiencing university life next year, after already being accepted into Charles Sturt University at Albury.

She will study K-12 teaching after receiving early entry, and says she wants to specialise as an English teacher.

‘‘I have always been really good at it and having Mrs McNaught (her English teacher) has really helped my decision.’’
