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

Deakin Oration

Our College was recently afforded an amazing opportunity for two students and one teacher to attend the annual Deakin Oration event at the Victorian Parliament House.   Given their passion for law and service to the College in their capacity as key Student Senate members, both Sobur Dhieu and Chantelle Calonge were selected to attend with our Head of Curriculum, Mrs Kristie Barber. The Deakin Oration is an annual presentation at Parliament House honouring Australia’s second Prime Minister and Victorian MP, Alfred Deakin, and giving a contemporary context to the issues he was interested in during his parliamentary career. It is an opportunity to hear from a prominent Victorian about a topical issue. This year's speaker was Associate Professor Tilman Ruff AM.Dr Ruff was the founding co-chair of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), which started as a grassroots movement in Melbourne, and in 2017 he won the Nobel Peace Prize.Dr Ruff spoke about the group’s efforts in helping to achieve the United Nations Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Reflections... "The speaker Dr Ruff presented information about the 'I can' campaign. He was a Nobel Peace Prize winner and was very insightful. The nuclear weapon ban treaty he talked about was interesting. It got you to think about the world, its' resources and how people have power to make a change. When you put his presentation into perspective and link it with faith and what God has blessed us

Celebrating Leadership

The news is in! Our very own Victoria Hirt, year 12, has just been awarded the winner of this year's VCE Leadership Award for Victoria! Featured on the VCAA website as one of eight finalists in this year’s VCE Leadership Awards, the judging panel were very impressed with Victoria's application and interview, and she received the news at the award ceremony last Friday. 'Wherever you see a person in need, there is an opportunity for leadership. That could be someone in your friendship group or community or a person overseas. Being a leader doesn't depend on your location, age or qualification. If you have the vision to do something that will benefit one person or a whole community, go for it. Everyone can be a leader.' 'Don’t you just love this amazing young lady’s heart for others? I had the privilege of reading her application and was overwhelmed at her commitment to helping people both at home and overseas – including being an ambassador for girls in education, CFA volunteering, working with prisoners, training adults in rural villages in Cambodia and mentoring our younger students at MCC.' - Ms Amanda Kirsten, VCE Coordinator.
