Students at Girton Grammar School in Bendigo have concluded their formal school journey with excellent VCE results that reflect hard work during a challenging year.
With 27% of Year 12 VCE students ranking in the top 10% of the State, Head of Girton Grammar School, Dr Clayton Massey, said that both teachers and students were delighted with what had been achieved.
“Our Year 12 students have made us particularly proud this year, and like all students, have shown resilience and persistence in difficult circumstances.
“Perhaps more so than usual, these strong VCE results are an indication of the degree to which our teachers are prepared to support students.
“In Year 12, teachers spend more intense time with students, especially in small groups or one-on-one and during periods of remote learning, this continued, which is a credit to both staff and students.
“Parents too must be congratulated for this year’s VCE results. The support that they provided to students studying at home has in no small way contributed to the success of our Year 12 students,” Dr Massey said.
Other VCE highlights for Girton Grammar are as follows:
- Five students achieved ATARs above 98, placing them in the top 2% of the State. Congratulations to Jordan Barclay (Dux), Eliza Griffiths, Jessica Dean, Dominic Tune and Hugo Begg
- 1.77% of Girton’s students finished in the top 1% of the State
- 10.62% of Girton’s students finished in the top 5% of the State
- 27.43% of Girton’s students finished in the top 10% of the State2020
- 51.33% of Girton’s students finished in the top 20% of the State
- Jessica Dean achieved a perfect score of 50 in Legal Studies.
“We know that behind every ATAR is a well-rounded young adult who has been encouraged to contribute to the world around them in every way possible.
“Year 12 students have already played their part in graciously following the rules that were put in place to keep them safe, especially when the Coronavirus cases in Bendigo were rising.
“I have every confidence that our graduating cohort leaves Girton with a perspective of life much bigger than themselves and ready to take on the responsibilities of adulthood,” Dr Massey said.
