Nadine is in her second-year at The University of Melbourne (Parkville campus). She is studying a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Media & Communications and Creative Writing.
In Year 12 at Charles La Trobe College (CLTC), Nadine was College Captain and graduated in 2021 as DUX of the College. Previously, she held the position of 2020 Arts Captain and was an active Rotary Club Interactor from 2019 until 2021.
“Before graduating from CLTC, I asked myself: “What legacy do I want to leave behind at CLTC?” I am proud to say that I led the organisation of CLTC’s first-ever “RUOK? Carnival Day” in 2021, as well as created CLTC’s first-ever school podcast called “CLTC Let’s Talk” which is available to listen to on Spotify.”
Since graduating from CLTC, Nadine has worked as a project leader for the Youth Foundation organisation of Banyule Community Health, specifically for their annual Youth Foundation Celebration Day event. In 2023, she will continue her advisory role with the school’s podcast team. During her first year at The University of Melbourne, she produced four short films, one of which focused on a particular person’s journey in sport.
“As I have experienced firsthand, here at CLTC, every teacher and staff member is dedicated to keeping their students safe and feeling welcome as they jolt them towards success in the real world. That’s exactly what CLTC has done for me, which is why I am proud to have CLTC as my alma mater and to feel connected to them even after high school. I hope you and your child will enjoy their foundational years here at Charles La Trobe College.”
“CLTC has helped me a lot in getting where I’m today. My teachers provided me all the skills and resources that I need in university. They helped me develop my academic subjects especially English. CLTC’s career advising program really opened my eyes in terms of choosing the right career path for me.”
“I have enjoyed my journey at Charles La Trobe College especially during year 12, this was a great year for me. The teachers were very supportive throughout the year, not only with our education but with issues we may have faced throughout the year.
The career’s advisers were very helpful in guiding me to my career path. I am enjoying my journey and see a good future ahead.”
“CLTC has provided some aspects that assist in preparing my tertiary life. One of this was the guidance of the teachers in CLTC in relation to their teachings and knowledge that was shared among students. This assists in enhancing the necessary skills and knowledge that students can apply in their university life.”
