Motivation can come in many forms. For our top four performing students with ATAR results within 0.75 per cent, there was clear common desire to embrace and persist with the challenge of VCE.
All four boys, discovered what they were truly capable of when they committed to giving their best. Despite natural feelings of uncertainty, they were bolstered by teacher’s reassurance, practical study plans, clear targets and integrated breaks with friends and family to support their wellbeing.
We congratulate Gavriel, Hardu, Alexander and Damon on their outstanding VCE results.

Embracing a consistent approach to achieving personal excellence has been a key focus of the 2023 College Student Leadership Team as they inspired others within their year level to set targets, manage their priorities and get involved in extracurricular and community activities.
College Captain Marcellino Baselyous reminds students about the role of setting goals and motivates others to move forward “whatever you aspire for, and whatever your heart truly desires; strive for it. Progress isn’t linear. It will go up and down, but aim for progress, not perfection and you will always move forward.”
The College congratulates Marcellino, Peter Liptai and Peter Holland on their outstanding VCE results while embracing key 2023 College leadership roles. Going above and beyond their leadership duties, they were always willing to lend a hand to others, sharing skills and knowledge by participating in authentic, collaborative learning.
"I have learnt that the ability to work with others is extremely valuable, and whilst VCE is a competition, maintaining relationships with friends and learning from each other is far more significant."
