2018 WEC VET Award

News Flash!

Jamel Cabucol, year 12, received the Principals' Award at this year's WEC Awards (Western Edge Cluster) presentation evening.

Each school Principal nominates one student from their student body to receive this prestigious award, and with a near-perfect score in his VET course so far, Jamel was the stand out choice. To be eligible, students must display outstanding effort and outstanding results.

"Jamel has demonstrated comitment and perseverance, and the resulting success is evident in his achievement." - David Gleeson, College Principal. 

Jamel has been working hard in Allied Health, with a keen eye on his future: "My goal was to achieve certificate level in order work next year in the field as an allied health assistant. I am hoping to either get into nursing or paramedicine. It means a lot since this award shows me that I have achieved good grades throughout the course. I am honoured to receive it."

“Our Jamel can definitely be described as a quiet achiever. Throughout his senior years he’s been passionate about heading into paramedicine when he graduates, and this fueled the decision to incorporate a Certificate III in Allied Health Assistance into his VCE program. Driven by his dream, Jamel has worked hard throughout the course to achieve remarkable results and the honour of this year’s Principal’s Award. I can say with confidence that if all paramedics are anything like Jamel, the future of nursing is in good hands!” – Ms Amanda Kirsten, VCE Coordinator
