Tess Hickey, BHS School DUX of 2020

Congratulations to the Year 12 Class of 2020 who are to be commended for their resilience, courage and diligence throughout the unprecedented disruptions and challenges of last year.

We are very proud of all our students who achieved extraordinary results including 100% successful completion of their VCE, an increase in both the median study score and the percentage of study scores of 40 and over, with two students achieving a perfect study score of 50 – in Further Mathematics and Food Studies.

I am pleased to announce that the 2020 Blackburn High School Dux is Tess Hickey, who achieved an ATAR of 99.5. In January I caught up with with both Tess and Rachael Curwen, who achieved an ATAR of 98.5, to congratulate them on their fantastic results. We look forward to formally celebrating and acknowledging Tess, Rachael and all the Year 12 students with their families and teachers at the upcoming Celebration Night in their honour.
