Premier’s VCE Awards

Madeleine M S-B

The Premier’s VCE Awards recognise top performing students for their outstanding academic achievements in their Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE). Last year, 50,981 Victorian students attained their VCE. 290 students across the state received 319 awards in 87 subjects.

On Monday June 3, the Premier’s VCE Awards were held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. Study awards are presented to students who have achieved a study score of 46 or above. We were very proud to witness The Hon James Merlino MP, Deputy Premier and Minister for Education, present Fitzroy High School student Madeleine M S-B with her study award for VCE VET Community Services, for which she achieved a perfect score of 50. Penny Vakakis, Executive Officer of the Inner Melbourne VET Cluster, and Madeleine’s Community Services trainer, was also present to witness the presentation. Only one other student in the state achieved a study award for Community Services.

Fitzroy High School was in good company at the Premier’s VCE Awards, among only three other government secondary schools in the inner north with students receiving awards: Collingwood College, Princes Hill Secondary College and University High School.

Madeleine is working in the hospitality sector for her gap year and is looking forward to starting her nursing degree at the Australian Catholic University next year.
