Musically focused

An unwavering passion for music meant a clear path for Mieke,
right from the beginning of secondary school

Mieke has always known what she wants to do and has been completely focused on that goal throughout her school life.

Keeping an open mind

Sometimes knowing what you don’t want can bring you closer to discovering what you do.

In Years 10 and 11, Holly wanted to be a pilot in the Air Force. “I joined the cadets and threw everything into it. I went on camps, did work experience at East Sale Air Force Base, but in the end I realised it wasn’t for me.

Unique pathways with VCAL

VCAL offers an alternative pathway for students like Monique, who prefer
more practical experiences

Monique realised at the beginning of Year 11 that the structure of VCE wasn’t for her. She transferred to the VCAL program and never looked back.

Seeking guidance pays off

With poise and wisdom beyond her years, Anri always knew when to seek guidance and support.

When Anri moved to Melbourne in Term 3 of Year 7, she understood very little English but she possessed poise and wisdom beyond her years.

Focusing on the end goal

"I kept my focus by reminding myself that although my future is in dance, everything I do takes me closer to that goal."

Unlike most students, Amy knew she had secured a spot in her tertiary course of choice in the early stages of Year 12. Following a gruelling four-hour dance audition, Amy was accepted into Kelly Aykers Full Time Dance school in April 2019. 

While knowing her path was secure took the pressure off, Amy needed to make sure she stayed motivated throughout Year 12 to ensure she completed her other subjects; Health and Human Development, Psychology, Maths and English.
