BANKSIA Secondary College student Ashleigh Kedge is one of her school’s greatest success stories. And that was before she found out yesterday she had earned a study score of 49 out of 50 for one of her subjects.
Ashleigh’s feats are especially remarkable because she was born deaf.
Her dedication has taken her to the top of the state in VCE Auslan (sign language).
Ashleigh, who taught herself to lip read and speak as a child, said she was shocked by her study score of 49 in Auslan.
