Lachie Brown was Cathedral College’s highest achiever, receiving an ATAR of 98.35, putting him in the top 1.65 per cent of students in the state.
Cathedral College principal, Adrian Farrer, said not only had Lachie had terrific success academically, he had also made the effort throughout the year to be involved in many extra curricular activities.
Galen Catholic College, with a cohort of 123 students completing their VCE, announced Sean Bartlett as its dux with an ATAR of 96.45.
