Students' Performance Peaks at Premier's VCE Awards


Victoria’s top performing students have received recognition for their hard work today, with the Premier’s VCE Awards being presented during a special ceremony at Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.


Minister for Education James Merlino presented the awards to high-achieving students and congratulated them on their hard work, with a total of 274 young Victorians receiving 302 awards across 85 subjects.

This includes 276 Study Awards, 23 Top All-Round VCE High Achiever Awards and three Top International Student Awards.

The Top All-Round VCE High Achiever awards recognise students who achieved study scores of 46 or higher out of 50 in at least five VCE subjects, while Study Awards recognise the very best performers in individual VCE subjects.

William Lee from Flow region Birchip was successful in receiving the Agricultural and Horticultural Studies for his hard work at Birchip P-12 school.

Mr Merlino congratulated the high-performing VCE students, saying: “With support from their school communities, friends and families, [the students] have worked hard and excelled in their studies.

“We’re building the Education State to support students just like these, so that every Victorian gets the opportunity to reach their potential and every community has access to a great school with outstanding teachers.”
