From Our Principal
We are very proud of the achievements of the Class of 2020 VCE students who demonstrated a passion for learning and achieving their best. Sacré Cœur is an open entry school and our students have once again excelled. In 2020, 50% of our students attained an ATAR in the top 10% of the state and achieved a median ATAR of 90.05.
Congratulations to our Dux Isabelle Collins, who achieved an ATAR of 99.55 and to three students who achieved a perfect Study Score of 50: Sofia Tuszynski (Australian History), Indiana Rickard Smith (Media), and Isabelle Collins (Psychology).
Isabelle, throughout her years at Sacré Cœur, availed herself of a broad range of educational opportunities. She held many positions of leadership and also received numerous awards during her six years at Sacré Cœur, including the prestigious Principal’s Award and various Subject Awards. A highly valued member of the Sports, Music, Debating and Social Justice Programs of the School, Isabelle was, in particular, recognised for her participation and skill in a variety of GSV and school sport teams.
Sacré Cœur also had 20% of students awarded the VCE-Baccalaureate in 2020. The VCE-Baccalaureate provides an additional form of recognition for those students who choose to undertake the demands of studying both a higher level mathematics (Mathematical Methods or Specialist Mathematics) and a language, in their VCE program of study. They must also score 30 or above for English or Literature.
We are immensely proud of our students, who have achieved excellent results at an individual and collective level. This success is made possible with the highest quality teachers, and the community thanks them for their staunch commitment and expert guidance, especially through the challenges the COVID-19 pandemic brought.
Success comes in countless forms at Sacré Cœur and we are especially pleased that many of our girls achieved at a level greater than their original hopes and expectations. The VCE Class of 2020 also contributed much to Sacré Cœur over their years at Burke Road and their contribution strengthened our community.
With pride, we recognise the achievements of the Class of 2020 and extend our very best wishes to each of our students. We are confident that our young women will undertake future endeavours with the confidence gained from their education at Sacré Cœur.
