Semester Two commenced for all VCE and VM students on Monday 5th June 2023 and students are now completing a Unit 2 or Unit 4 study.

Year 12 – Mid Year Practice Exams

On Friday 9 June, Year 12 VCE students attended their first mid-year exam for EAL. This exam was supervised by external assessors. The rest of the mid-year exams will be held during the holidays from Thursday 29th June to Tuesday 4th July. Attendance at the mid-year exams is compulsory and students have been given plenty of notice so they can attend. The mid-year exams assists students to develop their confidence in answering exam questions, highlights their strengths and gaps in their understanding, provides familiarity with the exam structure and helps to reduce anxiety. The mid-year exams are invaluable practice and preparation for the VCAA end-of-year exams.

The Year 11 Unit 1 – Semester Reports

The Year 11 Unit 1 end-of-semester reports will be available to parents on the parent portal from Thursday 22 June 2023, and the next set of Year 12 progress reports will be available in Week 2 of Term 3. Year Level Coordinators will be contacting families if they have any concerns regarding your child’s progress. It is also a good opportunity to speak to your child about their progress, goals and future pathway.

100 Days of Success

The Year 11 students will be celebrating “100 Days of Success” on Wednesday 21 June 2023, which will be held in the Performing Arts Centre. Students will be treated to musical performances, a special guest performance and light refreshments. On Tuesday 25 July 2023, Year 11 students will be choosing their Year 12 subjects. We suggest that students select their subject carefully and are realistic about their choices. Please keep in mind that once students start in Year 12, it will difficult to change a subject or unit of study.

Tertiary Information Session

All Year 12 students will be attending a Tertiary Information Session (TIS) which covers VTAC (Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre). This will outline the tertiary application process, how students apply for further education and training and how they may receive assistance throughout the process. Further information on when this will occur will be communicated to students in due course. Year 12 students will also be treated to a motivational lunch on Wednesday the 9 August 2023.


The VCE VM students are still working with our community and are thoroughly enjoying their work on their complex projects.

Year 11 – Chase Program

The Year 11 VCE students are completing the Education Phase of their Chase program and will begin the next step with the Action Phase. The Action Phase enables students to implement their knowledge and skills into projects that will improve health in the school or within their community. These projects may include implementing healthy foods in the canteen, petitioning to local council members about improving bike paths or developing lunchtime running groups. The projects will be facilitated by the mentors and driven by the students.

VCE Premier’s Award 

We would also like to celebrate the success of one of our 2022 Graduates, Mr. Anthony Tran, who has received a VCE Premier’s Award.  This top level award recognises high performing students who excelled in the Victorian Certificate of Education in 2022. The Awards Ceremony will be held on Thursday 27 July from 2:30pm to 4:30pm at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. On behalf of the College community would like to congratulate Anthony on this outstanding achievement and continue to wish him success in all his future endeavors.


As always, we welcome all parent communication. Please don’t hesitate to contact us on 9366 2555 if you have any queries or concerns about your child.
