Genazzano FCJ College is proud to announce that five students from our Class of 2018 are the recipients of the Premier’s VCE Awards.

These awards recognise top performing students for their outstanding academic achievements in the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE).

Eleanor Kirkland, the College Dux for 2018, received two Premier’s Study Awards for Specialist Mathematics and Mathematical Methods, an outstanding result and great reward for all her hard work in 2018.   

Eleanor is currently studying a double degree of Law and PPE (Politics, Philosophy and Economics) at the Australian National University in Canberra.

Additionally, four other Genazzano students received Premier’s Study Awards which recognise students who have received study scores of 46 or above in a single subject; Bianca DiMattina for Dance, Elena Murphy for Texts and Traditions, Madeleine Van Velzen for Food Studies and Miranda Hojok also for Food Studies.

Bianca and Elena are current Year 12 students at Genazzano. Madeleine is studying Bachelor of Science at the University of Melbourne and will major in microbiology and immunology and Miranda is completing Dentistry – Bachelor of Health Science (in Dentistry)/Masters of Dentistry at La Trobe University in Bendigo.

The Premier’s VCE Awards recognises the outstanding results of the individual students and pays tribute to the principals, teachers and families who play a valuable role in supporting these students during their VCE studies.

Genazzano continues to create a culture of excellence in a supportive learning environment encouraging young women to lead and inspire others and go confidently into the world.
