An 18-year-old former student of Geelong Grammar School is suing the school for damages after she failed to get accepted in her first preference university course. I know.
The woman, Rose Ashton-Weir, claims the school system at Geelong Grammar failed her explaining, “I didn’t ever feel I was getting the support I needed to really excel”, also known as “slacking off” or “just not being smart enough”.
Every year thousands of students miss out of getting into their number one course option but most of those teenagers accept the fact and work on upgrading their course through effort and determination. Or garden party anecdotes.
