He received Outstanding Scholarships in English, History, and Health and Physical Education, along with Scholarships in Art History, Biology, and Calculus. This placed him in the top echelon of scholars nationally and the only Year 12 student in the country to receive a Premier Award.

Cameron’s school reports indicate incredible academic engagement with, application to, and mastery of, subject knowledge. His teachers have appreciated his enquiring mind and positive approach to learning.

Cameron reaches far beyond the classroom in terms of his engagement and excellence in school life.
