Jenna Milone Reflection - College Dux


I was fortunate enough to become the College Dux for 2015. This has been an achievement I am very proud of, and so I would like to share some of my experiences from my time at CRC with you, and hopefully inspire you to strive for your best. 
I have been at CRC Melton since Year 7, having previously completed my primary education at St. Bernard's Catholic Primary School in Bacchus Marsh. At the beginning of my secondary education, I would not have called myself a high achiever. I was a quiet, shy Year 7, but I was a hard worker and a dedicated student with a willingness to learn and improve. I would set myself goals, constantly pushing myself and striving to improve my grades on tests and assignments. As my grades continued to improve, I began to gain confidence in my academic abilities and ideas, and through the years my standards increased. This both motivated me and encouraged me to upkeep my study habits and hard work. 
During my final year, I didn't change any of my study habits or work particularly harder than the years before. I treated it like any other year, disciplining myself to work hard and ensure that I was always 100 per cent confident with the content covered in each of my subjects. If I ever had any doubts or was unsure, I would always seek help from my teachers straight away, or if they were unavailable, my past teachers. 
I'd also like to thank all my teachers, especially my VCE teachers, for their patience, and for helping me to achieve my best throughout my time at CRC. I would also like to say a special thank you to Mr Henneman, Mrs Lock, and my homeroom teachers, Mrs Matthews and Mrs Conte, for always looking out for me and supporting me during my VCE. 
To the students, through my own experiences at secondary school, I can honestly say there is no natural talent required to achieve great things. The only two ingredients required are hard work and dedication. There's no secret, no fancy study tips or techniques that I can share with you. If you have an academic dream or goal, with the right attitude and the willingness to put in the time and effort, you will get there. There is no substitute for hard work. 
I am now very excited to be commencing a double degree in nursing and midwifery at Deakin University, and am looking forward to the new challenges ahead. 
I wish you all the best of luck.

Jenna Milone.
