A perfect score of 50 for Further Maths- congratulations to our 2014 School Captain Amir Malellari!
was the deserving recipient of the VCE Premier’s Award after achieving a perfect score of 50 for Further Maths. There was a special ceremony held for all students across Victoria who achieved 50 in a VCE subject. They were awarded the prestigious VCE Premier’s Award. A perfect score at VCE level is an outstanding achievement; it takes a great deal of work, commitment and diligence.

Goce Budzakoski has been invited to attend the UBS Finance Academy 2014 which will be held at Macquarie University. The objective of the Academy is to provide leadership in investment banking education with a particular focus on
senior secondary school students.  We know that Goce will return to his schooling with an intellectual and social advantage and an interest in pursuing his career dreams.
First and foremost, I would like to thank and acknowledge the efforts and contribution of our teachers as they have consistently maintained a positive approach towards the participation of students in physical activities. As an extremely fortunate student in an encouraging environment, I have attempted to fully implement my competitive spirit and passion for sports throughout several inter-school competitions, such as cricket,  table-tennis, athletics and football tournaments. I express my gratitude and humility in being chosen as a worthy recipient of this ‘2014 Pierre de Coubertin’ award. I am aware there are many highly dedicated and elite recipients of the past, many of whom have been Olympians. They have also inspired me to strive and achieve.” Aftab Merchant
