Galen Catholic College would like to congratulate all Year 12 students across the 2019 VCE and VCAL courses on their results. We are very pleased to announce that Galen students achieved an outstanding 100% success rate at VCE and Senior VCAL.
We are very pleased to announce that the Dux for 2019 is Katherine Jolly with an ATAR of 96.95 placing her in the top 3 % of students in the state. Katherine was closely followed by Nathan Chadban with 95.65 and Imogen Quilty with 93.45.
We are particularly proud that 8 Galen students achieved ATARs of 90 or above placing them in the top 10% across the state. Over 30 Galen students achieved Study Scores over 40 in individual subjects placing them in the top 8% of all students across the state in those subjects.
Whilst we are naturally proud of and happy for the large number of students who have achieved high scores, we are equally pleased to report that so many students have achieved to the best of their ability and have given themselves the best possible opportunity to move onto their preferred next steps in life whether that be employment, further study or a GAP year.
Galen Principal, Bernard Neal, said that the staff and Galen community are immensely proud of the efforts of the 2019 cohort. “It is really important to note that we are equally proud of all students who put in their best effort regardless of their subject scores and ATARs and regardless of whether they completed their VCE or VCAL. We are proud to have played such a pivotal role in preparing these young people over their final six years of school education.”
Mr Neal also said, “The breadth and flexibility of opportunities available to our students through the 26 VCE subjects undertaken by Galen at school this year, along with VCAL, VET and School Based Apprenticeships, has enabled the senior students at Galen to tailor courses to suit their particular needs and interests, including the ability to combine elements of all four.
“Today’s results will enable the Galen alumni now to step forward with confidence and a sense of achievement that opens new doors into their futures. We wish all the students well on the next stage of their journey – Galen will always be here to help and advise them as needed, and to celebrate their future successes with them. We hope that they will continue to be as proud of their Galen heritage as we are of them.”
