Two Comet Bay College graduates are shooting for the stars this year, after finishing their high school journey with top marks in their chosen fields.

They join a list of other students from the area who have succeeded in getting through a stressful year of study, assignments and exams.

Mysteque Pepper completed her VET training in Year 12 and received a certificate of excellence in automotive logistics and engineering.

This year she plans on studying engineering technology at Murdoch University mid-year and is in the process of getting a mechanical fitting apprenticeship.

“Year 12 was a pretty good year for me, I did the VET program, graduated school with three Cert II, two other courses and I did a university bridging course as well,” she said. “I received a certificate of excellence from the School Curriculum and Standards Authority for my efforts in automotive logistics and engineering.”

Julia Celiberti completed her ATAR studies and won awards for her outstanding marks in four of her subjects.

She said her plan was to study a bachelor of commerce at the University of Western Australia.

“I found year 12 to be a good but challenging year, it really tests your motivation a little bit but it is worth it after you have finished,” she said.

“I got the class awards for my ATAR subjects, the Lions Club academic excellence award, an SCSA award for Mathematics Application and the Arete Club school award.”

Mysteque and Julia both said their advice for future students would be to do your best.

“You will probably feel like everyone expects the world from you, but don’t even worry about it, just try the best that you can,” Mysteque said.

Julia said there were always different pathways available, to help students get where they want to go after leaving school.
