Nagle College is once again pleased to commend our 2021 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 over the past two years. The outcomes for students were impressive for the 64 students sitting the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) exams and the 21 students studying the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL). Students successfully completed these certificates and gained recognition for their work and effort. The 2021 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 17% of students achieved an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) above 80 and 30% above 70. These scores were backed up by the whole student population with 75% achieving an ATAR over 50 and a medium subject study score of 28.

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 2021 group can now look forward confidently to taking up opportunities to secure their future options.

Renae Jones has been congratulated on being the VCE dux of Nagle College for 2021. She achieved an ATAR of 96. Renae is looking forward to taking a GAP year in 2022 during which she will focus on her sport of clay target shooting. She will give further consideration to a tertiary course beyond 2022.

It was also pleasing to see many students achieving study scores over 40 across a range of subjects including Further Maths, Biology, Religion and Society, Sport & Recreation, Business Management, Physical Education and Legal Studies.

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 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 Kasey Nichols who was the dux of the VCAL cohort. Kasey has secured employment at Style & Co in Bairnsdale.

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.
