Calamvale Community College’s Class of 2021 Dux – Sally Hoang

Congratulations to Calamvale Community College’s Class of 2021 Dux – Sally Hoang

Sally was a graduate of the College’s International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme in which she excelled across all subjects.  The programme, which is academically rigorous with an emphasis on breadth and depth of subjects, as well as the highly valuable skills of multilingualism, international mindedness and critical thinking is world-renowned and highly regarded by Universities globally.

Sally excelled and achieved the highest grade of 7s in Higher Level English Language and Literature, Psychology and Standard Level Mathematics and Mandarin – with much of this content at first year University level.   As part of her creativity and commitment to service requirements, Sally was also the editor of the school newspaper; the Calamvale Chronicle

Perhaps her strongest and most talented passion, Visual Arts, provided some of her greatest and proudest achievements across the year.  Sally was selected by the Logan Art Gallery to host some of her art pieces at the annual ArtWaves exhibition for local high schools.  It was here that four of her original art pieces were purchased by members of the public.

At the conclusion of this exhibition, Sally was selected and awarded the prestigious mentorship called: Ripple effect: out of Artwaves.  Each year Logan Art Gallery selects one of the outstanding young artists who exhibited in the annual Artwaves: Logan and adjacent areas secondary schools art exhibition to mentor in developing their own solo exhibition.  The winner of the ARTWAVES Mentorship 2022 program will be provided with guidance and support from Logan Art Gallery to develop their understanding of what it is like to produce an exhibition in the professional gallery sector.  At the conclusion of the mentorship program, the recipient will have a solo exhibition in the Young Peoples Gallery of Logan Art Gallery.

As an aspiring Graphic Designer who has been accepted to study a dual bachelor degree in Business and Design at Griffith University, this unique insight and opportunity to work with artists to produce and curate an exhibition will be invaluable.  Sally has been awarded both the Sir Samuel Griffith Scholarship and the Griffith Business School Academic Excellence scholarship.

As a P-12 College, CCC is genuinely able to provide a ‘cradle to career’ journey, providing a multitude of curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities along the way.  For Sally, this included representing the College at a range of creative and academic events and competitions on local, national and international stages, including at Yale University as a Year 9 student.

The College would like to congratulate the entire Class of 2021 who have graduated with the requisite lifelong learning skills, a qualification or score in hand and a mindset and skillset that allows them to take on today and beyond.
