Congratulations Rafael - Millennium Scholar

Every year, the top ten students from Grade 10 (as measured by Cal 2), are given the opportunity to apply for the ABC's Millennium Scholarship. Those that do submit themselves to a series of scholarship examinations - a general paper and three subject based papers.
We had four candidates pass from the difficult examination stage to the interview stage, from which one candidate is successful. The four Millennium Scholarship candidates were Martha Osegueda, Marcelo Portillo, Rafael Lino and Young Ik Kim.
It is always difficult to select one person from such talented individuals. The candidates are asked to prepare a two minute talk ("My hopes for the new millennium") and a series of interview questions from the panel of four staff members provide answers which are minutely examined.
The internal Millennium Scholar for SY 12-13 is Rafael Lino - to whom we offer our congratulations.
