High Achievers Assembly

The college was proud to welcome back the 2015 VCE High Achievers to an awards assembly on 2 February.

The Principal, Ms Louise Gunther, unveiled the new Avila brand statement ‘Inspiring today for tomorrow’ and remarked that the VCE high achievers from last year were inspired over the course of their study at Avila to record some remarkable results.

Sophia Elliott was the college Dux for 2015 and she achieved an ATAR score of 99.05. Sophia spoke to the students and special guests and remembered her time at Avila fondly. She mentioned that being involved in pursuits other than study, such as Drama and Debating, in her final year helped her to achieve her score. The community also congratulated students who achieved a perfect score of 50 who were Sophia Elliott for Legal Studies, Christiana David for Further Mathematics and Erin Flatters (pictured) for Visual Communication Design. Top scoring students in their individual study areas were also acknowledged during the assembly. A number of these students were in Year 11 in 2015 when they completed a 3/4 unit of VCE study. After the assembly concluded guests, including many proud parents, enjoyed afternoon tea together.
