The newest New Collegians - the Freshers of 2006
by Dr James Pietsch, Dean of Residents
This year saw a larger than usual intake of new residents with 118 new residents arriving for Session One 2006. Competition for places was very strong with almost 400 people applying for these places. The new residents are an exceptional group of young people. During the interviews conducted over December and January 19 knew they would be dux of their high school for 2005 and 20 were able to report that they had received UAI's over 99. Many were successful in applying for major scholarships, however, our new residents also displayed many other qualities besides academic ability and amongst the 117 new residents there are many sportspeople, musicians and community-minded people who have spent the past few years doing more than just study.
