In this most extraordinary year, Nagle College is pleased to commend our 2020 Year 12 students on their achievements and successful completion of their secondary education. They have shown their adaptability and been prepared to persevere in such challenging circumstances. The outcomes for students were impressive for the 79 students studying the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) and the 36 students studying the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL). Students successfully completed these certificates and gained recognition for their work and effort. The 2020 Year 12 students are now looking forward to moving towards the next chapter of their life and taking opportunities giving them access to a wide range of options.

The principal of Nagle College, Mr Neville Powles, said that it was pleasing that 15% of students achieved an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) above 80. These scores were backed up by the whole student population with 78% achieving an ATAR over 50 and an average subject study score of 29.

The College is always looking to improve student performances and give them every opportunity to achieve as well as they possibly can. Our students have a strong track record of forging successful pathways in further education, training and employment once they finish secondary schooling – and the 2020 group can now look forward confidently to taking up opportunities to secure their future options.

Amba Carr has been congratulated on being the VCE dux of Nagle College for 2020. She achieved an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) of 93. Amba is looking forward to taking a GAP year in 2021 and is giving further consideration to a range of tertiary courses which may include commerce and health. She gave particular thanks to Ms Kelly, all her Year 12 teachers and her parents and friends for all their support.

It was also pleasing to see many students achieving study scores over 40 across a range of subjects including English, Further Maths, Biology, Outdoor and Environmental Studies, Business Management and Physical Education.

Two students obtained the International Baccalaureate with their high scores acknowledging both personal and academic achievement. We congratulate Bree O’Neill and Milly Basford.

Whilst the current focus has been on the students who completed their Year 12 VCE studies, there is a significant group of students who completed their Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) certificates this year. Many of these have achieved outstanding outcomes even though it is still early times. Students are gaining full time employment, apprenticeships and traineeships.

Mr Powles congratulated Sarah Stewart who was the dux of the VCAL cohort. In a competitive marketplace students are being offered apprenticeships and local employers are pleased to employ Nagle College students. The students are reaping the benefits of an engaging and challenging applied learning program that prepares them with the skills to make an effective transition into the workplace.
