Today, 124 Genazzano students from the graduating Class of 2021 (of a total of 128 students) received their VCE results. All students celebrated what has been a tough two years in and out of lockdowns.
At Genazzano we pride ourselves on providing a holistic education for students, one that allows them to become well rounded women who are prepared for their futures. We recognise that a single score never fully defines our success. We believe that every girl has the potential to make her mark on the world; and we empower our students to become change makers, to choose their own futures and to transform the world by taking action and advocating for social change.
Congratulations to the entire cohort for their ongoing resilience, courage and confidence to complete their VCE studies.
Madeline Grave, has been awarded College Dux 2021 with an ATAR rank of 99.8 and received perfect scores of 50 in English Language and Human & Health Development.

Congratulations to the following students who achieved an ATAR over 99: Madeline Grave 99.8, Sophia Connor 99.75, Isabel Finch 99.7, Caterina Stella 99.7, Anja Rozanic 99.45 and Alice Davine 99.3.
There were also a number of students who attained perfect study scores as part of their outstanding commitment.
The attitude and determination of the graduating class is reflective of what it means to be a Genazzano student – someone who remains positive, focused, approaches challenges head on, has the courage to ask for help and the confidence to keep going.
These results acknowledge the efforts of our community who have supported these young women in a turbulent final two years of schooling. Parents, carers, teachers and school leaders, have all played valuable roles in supporting these students during their VCE studies.
Mrs Loretta Wholley, 2021 Principal at Genazzano FCJ College, commented on this year’s results.
“Congratulations to the Class of 2021 – I am so proud of you”, she said.
“I am certain, that as you venture into the world you will remain, at your core, a Gen Girl, taking with you the values you know and cherish, that have become more than just words, but part of your lives and way of being. Like companionship, hope, justice, gentleness, dignity, excellence, faithfulness, courage and confidence”.
“I don’t need to tell you all about how hard 2021 has been – we have all lived through it. I hope when your heart is peaceful, you will also look back with gratitude on what you achieved. The special memories that you made with friends and the great resilience that was shown during times of difficulty”.
“I hope you will remember the words of the many encouraging videos sent to you that called on you to work together and support each other – their advice does not end today, but will be with you forever”.
At Genazzano we encourage students to find their niche and leverage their strengths and talents and excel in new and diverse ways. Our inclusive environment allows girls to grow personally and academically; and develop the life skills they need to succeed beyond school.
