well the girls have all had a big year. grace and ellen have finished their year 12 studies with a part-time year at marden senior college alongside doing "the big year out".
grace got a TER of 89.2 and ellen got 93.1, including a score of 20 for women's studies. they're both hoping to go to flinders uni next year to do a BA - womens studies, sociology etc, and possibly visual arts minor for grace.
maddy is off to annesley college (adelaide's MLC...) on a scholarship. she topped her grade 7 class, and was also presented with a medal for a perfect score in the Australasian maths olympiad (top 0.6% of 27,000 kids) - she got her photo in the local paper for that one.
so the parents are happy campers....
