GIPPSLAND GRAMMAR'S 2021 VCE RESULTS
Gippsland Grammar’s Year 12 VCE students have shown incredible resilience and dedication throughout their two-year VCE program. Through extended lockdowns and pivoting between multiple modes of learning, the students, along with their teachers, have achieved great results.
Twenty-one per cent of Gippsland Grammar students achieved an ATAR above 90 and 38 per cent above 80. This places them in the top 10 percent, and 20 per cent, in the state respectively.
Gippsland Grammar’s Dux for 2021 was Demi Edward with an ATAR of 99.2. Demi, pictured below with Principal Leisa Harper, is from Traralgon and hopes to study medicine at Monash University.
Students joining Demi as the School’s highest VCE achievers were Jack Burton (Bairnsdale) with an ATAR of 99; Hannah Ng (Bairnsdale) with an ATAR of 98.8; Connor Hare (Sale) with an ATAR of 98.05; Sarah Beyer (Sale) with an ATAR of 97.35; Josh Mekken (Newmerella) with an ATAR of 95.95 and William Hall (Wy Yung) with an ATAR of 95.7.
Two students achieved a perfect study score of 50; Sarah Beyer in Chemistry and Sarah Husodo in Biology. Twenty-eight per cent of students achieved a study score above 40 with Jack Burton, Hannah Ng and Demi Edward accomplishing this in three subjects. An outstanding result.
Gippsland Grammar is also proud to acknowledge the 21 students who have made a successful transition into the workforce through an apprenticeship or traineeship this year.
Gippsland Grammar Principal Leisa Harper said that the 2021 Year 12 cohort has been amazing in their approach to their studies as well as how they have pivoted through such challenging times in their schooling. Their successes have been realised through apprenticeships, employment and VCE results and we are very proud of each of them.
“Notwithstanding the many changes in and out of Learn@Home, the results achieved reflect the strong relationship between our students, staff and their families. It has been an amazing team effort of our whole community,” Mrs Harper said. “Our students continue to excel even when their resilience and determination have been tested. There are many compelling stories of success from a Dux who achieved a well-deserved 99.2 to 21 per cent of our students scoring above 90 and 94 per cent of our students with an ATAR above 50.
“I am very excited for our students but also for our fantastic staff who have guided our students to this point of their academic journey. A Gippsland Grammar education is so much more than an ATAR and, for me, the true reflection of success is clearly demonstrated within the character of all of our students.”
Gippsland Grammar’s 2021 Year 12 cohort included 87 students from across Gippsland, the Latrobe Valley and far East Gippsland. The cohort also included two students from China and 16 boarders at the School’s Blackwood House.
Gippsland Grammar is also the only boarding school east of Melbourne’s suburban fringe and is a home-away-from-home for students from East Gippsland, South Gippsland, Victoria’s High Country and the Latrobe Valley.
