Celebrating the achievements of Year 12, 2023

We are proud to share some highlights of another year of outstanding VCE achievements, this year incorporating the VCE VM.

Highlights in summary:

  • 10% of students attained an ATAR over 90.
  • 36% of students attained an ATAR over 80.
  • 38% of students achieved study scores of 35 and above.
  • There were three perfect scores of 50!
  • 3 students were awarded the VCE Baccalaureate.
  • All VCE VM students graduated and completed VET studies.   

At Mater Christi College, we take pride in our approach to learning, which embraces diverse pathways and offers a wide range of opportunities to all students. We also acknowledge that not every student's story is told by their ATAR score.  We are particularly proud of our VCE VM students who have achieved great things in this first year of the new "One VCE".   For our students aspiring to pursue higher education, the ATAR continues to hold substantial importance in their Senior studies. We extend our congratulations to those students who have demonstrated unwavering dedication to their studies, leading them to achieve their desired ATAR and, subsequently, gain admission to their chosen tertiary courses.  These results are a testament to the advantage of an all-girls education.

Congratulations to the Class of 2023; you have demonstrated great resilience, and your commitment to each other and to the community is a true reflection of our Good Samaritan spirit. 

We also wish to extend our gratitude to our teaching staff, whose commitment and dedication to providing the best learning opportunities for our young people is most evident in our Year 12 results and the outstanding achievements of our Dux of VCE VM, Vanessa Mills and our College Dux, Tess Grandia

Tess attained an ATAR of 98.4, including two perfect scores of 50 in Business Management and Outdoor Education.

We also congratulate our other high ATAR achievers, who attained ATARs over 90 – Aly Jack Robinson, Emma Di Nardo, Alisha McGaffin, Alice Findlay, Willow Simanjuntak, Simone Martin, and Olivia Ward.

Jen MacDonald, Year 11, also attained a perfect score of 50 in Health & Human Development as a higher study.

Even though the external results are important, it is the learning growth that so many of our young people have achieved through perseverance and hard work that makes our hearts sing. Let us celebrate every young person’s commitment to their own growth and development within our supportive MCC community.
