Later, she boarded at Abbotsleigh school in Wahroonga, Sydney, where she completed her Higher School Certificate. In year 12, she was appointed the role of 'Head Girl', otherwise known as head prefect. It was unusual for a boarder to be placed in that role, so this was a particularly great achievement. [4]
