Congratulations to the VCE class of 2013
When challenged to aim for the stars The Geelong College VCE class of 2013 have all excelled. 33% of our students achieved an ATAR score of 90 or more which places them in the top 10% of Victoria and Australia. The median ATAR score was 82.95 and 17% of all study scores recorded were 40 or greater, which is a considerable achievement, given the state average is 8.74%.

Principal, Mr Andrew Barr spoke with pride about the results this group of students achieved."What an outstanding group of young people the class of 2013 are" he said. "They have worked hard and thought broadly to achieve excellent academic results. They have also developed into true leaders who will make a difference to our world through the many opportunities available to them at the College. The class of 2013 have led the way in our community service efforts and actively participated in sport, music, drama, public speaking and much more. I will watch with anticipation to see their journey and where it takes them. Be it travel, work or further study, I genuinely believe we will see great things from these young people."

"It was very rewarding to again see the breadth of the subjects in which students excelled" Mr Barr continued. "This shows that the College can support all students to develop and achieve their goals. This year Media, in which 50% of exam results were an A or A+ was a standout, as were Studio Arts, in which the median study score was 38, and Theatre Studies, where the median study score was 37."

Dux of the College, Erica White, achieved an outstanding ATAR score of 99.45. Erica has had an excellent year receiving the Year 12 Prize for Outstanding Academic Performance, The Mathematical Methods Prize, the Brian Lester Prize for Specialist Mathematics, the A.T Andrews Memorial Prize for Mathematics and Science in Year 12, and Year 12 Merit Awards for Chemistry, Mathematical Methods and Specialist Mathematics. She has also contributed broadly to the College as Prefect, Captain of the Girl's Hockey team and Fairest and Best Hockey player for the season. She received School Honours for Academic Achievement, Hockey and Concert Band, and School Colours for Rowing. Erica was one of the leaders for the Hockey Tour to New Zealand and has left her trade mark work ethic as a legacy to the girls' hockey program.

Mr Barr was thrilled at Erica's result. "Erica is a great example of a College student. She has worked diligently at her studies, taken opportunities to extend her learning and developed through leadership, sport and music into a genuine all-rounder who understands what it takes to achieve. I have no doubt that she will go on to excel in her Medical studies and make a real difference to her community in the future."

Erica was excited after finding out her score of 99.45 this morning. "It was a bit of disbelief but mostly excitement because my whole family was up with me" she said. "It was just good to finally get my score so I can start thinking about next year."

Mr Barr offered his congratulations to the VCE class of 2013, their teachers and their families. "I am so proud of the way each one of our students have committed to the school community, their studies and to finding what it is that will lead them to a bright future. I offer them congratulations and best wishes, both personally and on behalf of the College community" he said. "To the VCE staff, thank you for your outstanding work this year, you too should be very proud of what you have worked together to achieve. Finally thank you and congratulations to the families of this year's cohort, your care and support of your children, and the school has been remarkable."
