Perfect Score Acknowledged by Premier
VCE Premiers Award
St Catherine’s Head of Performing Arts, Mr James Brown, was brimming with pride when he attended the Premier’s VCE Awards on Tuesday 15 May. 2017. St Catherine’s graduate, Ingrid Crossing (’17) was one of only three students to receive the Award for Theatre Studies, recognising her outstanding academic achievement and perfect study score in the VCE subject.
David Howes (VCAA CEO) was the MC and the Honourable James Merlino, Victorian Deputy Premier and Minister for Education, spoke and presented the Awards to the 274 students across 85 subjects. To put this in perspective, almost 51,000 students undertook the VCE last year. Students receiving Awards this week are considered to be within the top 1% of the State.
Ingrid was elated after the ceremony and said she felt very special and thankful to Mr Brown and all her teachers during her VCE years. Following the ceremony, Ingrid returned to her Biology and Chemistry tutorials at The University of Melbourne where she is studying a Bachelor of Science.
We look forward to following her tertiary and career progress as a St Catherine’s Old Girl.
Both Ingrid and her Mum, Edwina were both so proud of Ingrid's achievements.
