SACE Merit Ceremony 2020

This year congratulations goes to Angello DeIonno for receiving a Merit Award for his Research Project. 
As Angello entered Year 12 he was determined to pursue his passions and undertake 5 subjects instead of the required 4. These extremely challenging subjects; Specialist Mathematics, Mathematical Methods, English Literary Studies, Physics and Chemistry were met head on to great success. Angello’s results speak for themselves; averaging an A grade for all subjects with an A+ for his Research Project, which he completed in Year 11. Angello’s Research Project was so exceptional that he was awarded a Merit and was invited to attend the SACE Merit Ceremony, hosted by the South Australian Governor, His Excellency the Hon. Hieu Van Le AC, at Government House earlier this month. Angello was awarded DUX of the school in 2019, receiving the highest Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) at Murray Bridge High School of 96.35, placing him in the top 6% of Year 12 students in South Australia. 
Angello is an extremely talented analytical and critical thinker, has meticulous time management skills, is a confident and outstanding oral communicator and demonstrates exemplary leadership qualities through both his work ethic and ability to work collaboratively with his peers to achieve success.  
Angello will begin his tertiary studies in early March at Flinders University, having been accepted to study a double degree titled Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering with Honours and a Masters of Biomedical Engineering.
