Select Your Campus

Head of Senior School ( Deputy )

ASA Parents and Students,

Welcome back to the school community and a very warm welcome to our new families who are joining us for the first time in 2021.

I sincerely hope you all had a restful break and are completely refreshed and ready for the start of the new academic year.

Beginning a new school is often a daunting experience for some students but especially so after long periods of home-schooling in 2020. I encourage parents and students who are new to the school, to reach out for assistance if necessary. Our Year level Coordinators in the senior school this year are:

Ms. Fadia EldebsYear 10
Ms. Hend Eissa Year 11
Ms. Yasemin Bozkurt Year 12

It is with great pride that I share the results of the graduating class of 2021 with you. Many of you are already aware that it has been yet another successful year at Melbourne Senior Campus. Our ATAR median for 2020 was 74.55. An astounding 53% of our students received their top VTAC preference in Round One. Eighty-three percent of our students were offered a place at one of four universities consisting of the University of Melbourne, Monash University, RMIT or La Trobe University, while the most popular post-secondary study proved to be Science and Mathematics with one in five students choosing a course in this field, followed closely by Health Care and Building and Construction.

Our joint Duxes for 2021 were Susan Hamad and Aiesha Khoder who both scored an ATAR of 97.9 The result put them in the top 2.1 per cent of the state’s highest achievers. Susan will go on to complete a Bachelor of Biomedicine at the University of Melbourne while Aiesha has opted to undertake a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) at Monash University. I congratulate both girls on their amazing achievement.

And on a final note, I’d like to thank all 2021 Year 12 students for their phenomenal effort and dedication, in what was a difficult year. Thank you to our parents, for entrusting us with the important responsibility of navigating the education of your children and lastly thank you to my colleagues who impart their experience and infinite wisdom and much of their time and energy to continue the AIA tradition of excellence.
