Our senior students commence VCE with an appreciation of their achievements, skills and talents, as well as a high regard for the positive relationships they have cultivated with their peers and College staff.
They are also well aware of the challenges ahead: our intention is to support each student to keep focussed on their studies and well manage the pressures of VCE, to realise their goals for life beyond school.

Year 12 Study Camp
All Year 12 students attend a study camp in the first week of Term 1 each year. The purpose of the camp is to set our Year 12 students up for a successful year. There is a focus on study skills, team building, communication, time management and wellbeing. The skills and strategies covered during the study camp are revisited and expanded upon during the year, as part of our VCE Excellence program.
All VCE students are provided with access to ‘EdRolo’ “the ultimate resource for year 12 students, teachers, and schools.” EdRolo provides 24 hour access to online curriculum focused video lessons, exam practice, and study planning tools.
Year 12 Formal
Each year the final year students organise a College formal. The formal is well attended by the community (including College staff) and is a social highlight of the year.
Year 12 Celebration Week and Presentation Evening
In the final week of school a series of events, including a special breakfast and assembly, are held at the College to celebrate the final week of classes prior to exams. To prepare for exams, students are welcome to return to school to work with teachers. Following the completion of exams, the College holds a Presentation Evening at which the Year 12 students are formally acknowledged and farewelled.
