Letichia Hoban

Top DHS Stage 2 NTCET Aboriginal  Student

Letichia Hoban was recognised at Darwin High Schools Top Stage 2 Aboriginal Student at the schools 2017 Presentation Night. She credits time management as the secret to her success in her final year of study.

As the year went by I learnt how to prioritise what tasks needed to be done in what order. My greatest achievement was learning how to cope under pressure when I had multiple assignments and examinations due at the same time. I also realised that if I put my best effort into something that the results would take care of themselves.

Letichia believes the schools safe and supportive learning environment, challenged her to achieve her full potential.

​Some of the best memories I have of my time at Darwin High School were spending time with my friends in the library during my breaks. My favourite subject during year 12 was AutoCAD because there was always a fun and creative project my friends and I would be working on.

Past and future studies

Letichia studied AutoCAD (Architectural Design), Business Enterprise, English, General Mathematics and Nutrition to complete her NTCET. She is now attending Monash University in Melbourne, where she is studying Architectural Design. The University also awarded Letichia with the Monash Scholarship for Indigenous Achievement and Equity.

Her advice for current Year 12 students is to simply apply yourself.

The most important piece of advice I was given which helped me throughout my schooling life was always give your best effort, this way you'll be happy with yourself and your work. Letichia Hoban
Darwin High School helped to prepare me by providing me with a great foundation for learning and achieving, they also instilled in me leadership skills which I now use. Letichia Hoban
