Morayfield dux on the path to success

Morayfield Dux Tulia and Morayfield Principal Lease Smith.

To say Morayfield State High School student Tullia Rohsheim has a bright future ahead of her is probably an understatement.

Seventeen-year-old Tuilla was awarded school dux for 2018, the first Indigenous student at the school to receive the prestigious honour.

Tuilla has a fierce passion for learning and a determination to push herself to succeed. She is a proud Kuku Yalangi Indigenous woman whose community is situated in Wujal Wujal, Far North Queensland.

Tuilla credits her success to great teachers, determination, hard work and family support.

“I feel privileged to have had extremely supportive teachers throughout my high school years,” she said.

“They noticed my potential and encouraged me to strive to achieve at high levels.

“Their support and belief in me helped me to believe in myself. I’ve worked hard and made sacrifices but am so very happy I did.”

Tullia also received the Year 12 Academic Excellence Award, the Senior Science Excellence Award and Year 12 Subject Awards for Biology, Chemistry, English, French, Legal Studies and Mathematics.

Tuilla, who began at Morayfield State High School in Year 8 in 2014, hopes to study a dual Bachelor of Laws (Honours) and Bachelor of Science (majoring in Chemistry, minoring in Forensics).

She also hopes to put her 5 years studying French at high school to good use and study a semester of her degree in France.
