Christian College Geelong is very proud of the Class of 2018 and celebrates the gifts and talents of all of our students. We congratulate every individual in the graduating Class. They have drawn much from all that Christian College has to offer and from the support of their dedicated teachers, which has translated into excellent VCE and VCAL results.
We congratulate the 2018 DUX, Owen Barrett on an outstanding ATAR of 99.45.
Principal, Mr Glen McKeeman said, “I am extremely proud of all of our graduating students. They have completed their journey at Christian College Geelong with enthusiasm and have made an outstanding contribution to the ‘Good Work’ that our students and community do in the service of others. We are today especially proud of all our students’ results and we celebrate those who received outstanding scores. However, we know these young people are not defined by their scores and the pathway ahead for each of our graduates is a bright one.
It is also pleasing to note the number of our students who are excited to be moving onto the next phase of their journey, with many choosing career paths purposed to make a difference in the lives of others. We wish them all well as they follow their individual passions and dreams.”

Owen Barrett, 2018 DUX: 99.45
Owen has been a long-standing student of Christian College Geelong, having commenced his education at the College in three-year-old kindergarten. While renowned as a very modest and humble student, Owen’s achievements in many varied areas of school have been nothing short of exceptional! He has been gifted in the classroom, on the sporting field and through his musical prowess. Owen’s performances at House Music and Drama, particularly his guitar performances, have provided stand-out memories for many. Owen’s natural abilities and willingness to generously share his skills with others has seen him shine throughout Year 12. Owen wishes to eventually study Medicine and perhaps later merge a career in the health profession with his interests in sport.
Sarah Jones: 99.40
Sarah has contributed so much to the life of Christian College Geelong throughout her time here. Sarah’s strong relationships with both her peers and our teaching staff at Christian College, have greatly enriched the fruits of her hard work in her senior years of school. Sarah has always been a positive influence on others, particularly through her studies in the LOTE and Science faculties. Sarah hopes to become a Doctor to help others and continue pursuing her passion for exploring the world through travel.
Holly Peacock: 97.00
Holly’s journey at Christian College Geelong began in Prep, 2006 and culminated as a House Prefect in her final year. Holly is a vibrant all-round student who has contributed in many aspects of the College community. Her energy and skills have been particularly evident in the sporting, artistic and scientific areas of school. Holly has plans to attend University and combine further study with travel. Her ambition is to eventually do something that will help others, possibly in the health field.
Oliver Humphris: 96.50
Oliver has been a high-profile musician during his time at Christian College Geelong and one of his aspirations for the future is to find a band in Melbourne so he can continue this passion. He has focused on Maths/Science subjects and plans to study Mechatronics Engineering at RMIT next year. During his nine years at Christian College, Oliver has enjoyed participating in the range of sports offered and has appreciated the caring culture amongst students and teachers. He aspires to be a hard-working member of society and hopefully travel the world.
Megan Heathcote: 95.85
Megan’s leadership qualities will leave a lasting effect on Christian College Geelong. She was an enthusiastic College Prefect who was always positive and a driving force behind the organising and direction of the group. Megan will fondly remember the inclusiveness of the Christian College community and the breadth of opportunities that she enjoyed throughout her time here. Megan’s passion and skills in writing were evident through her weekly message in the Senior School – Waurn Ponds Vine and coordination of the Year 12 Yearbook. Megan hopes to continue to write in the future with her aspirations to become a VCE English and Drama teacher in underprivileged areas.
