Many of our 2018 graduating students are now beginning their post-Cape Byron lives. Those students who wanted to move on to University study have received wonderful offers.
Three of our students are headed to the University of Melbourne to study a Bachelor of Arts. This is a prestigious Arts degree with high level entry requirements; this year requiring an ATAR over 85. Another student gained entry into the Bachelor of Design at the University of Melbourne, another high level course at this university. Also Melbourne bound is another of our creative students who is headed to RMIT to study Design as well as one of our budding female scientists who gained entry into RMIT to study Aerospace Engineering and Management!
In addition to this, one of our talented 2018 graduates gained entry into a Bachelor of International Studies at the University of NSW. Two of our students will be attending Southern Cross University to study Arts/Law, with another student studying a Bachelor of Business at Southern Cross.
Two further students are heading north to Griffith University to study a mix of Business and Design.
Many other students from the 2018 cohort are engaged in employment to save and move to Melbourne or see the world before settling into further study.
One lovely ongoing connection being fostered in Melbourne (and Sydney as well) is the mentoring by older ex-students from Cape Byron Steiner who assist and spend time with newly moved students. There is a connected community of alumni who help transition the new arrivals and it is great to see this continuing as a measure of support. It is not always easy to move away from the area and from family to start university so this is lovely to observe.
Our Vision at Cape Byron Rudolf Steiner School is to enable each individual to realise their potential to be self-aware, resourceful and resilient with the empathy, skills and initiative to make a positive contribution to the world. We are so proud of all of our graduates, as they embody this vision.
