Fei Xie came first, with 91 percent and 63 percent for English home language; second was Eric Zhou, with 85 percent and 66 percent for English home language, and Leo Chen scooped third place with 81 percent and 66 percent for English home language. Eric was awarded the book prize at the school’s annual awards evening for achieving the third highest average in Grade 12 – an enormous achievement, especially for a second language English speaker. He also received full academic colours and the Price Waterhouse Coopers Award for Accounting and Mathematics.
