Celebrating academic cxcellence at Caroline Chisholm Catholic College

Dux Izabella Mancewicz, acting principal Laura Ruddick, and Proxime Accessit Quan Cao.

Every year, Caroline Chisholm Catholic College is thrilled to invite the previous year’s outstanding scholars back to the school for an assembly that recognises academic excellence.

This year was filled with particular excitement, as the college was one of three Catholic high schools in Melbourne to deliver across the past three years, a year-on-year uplift in the percentage of VCE study scores of 40 and over.

Students are given certificates and gifts for being in the Top 20 of ATAR scorers for the school, or for attaining the highest Study Score over 40 for a subject. It’s an opportunity to celebrate the hard work and effort put in by students, but also to inspire current students to see the reward that comes from that hard work. It’s a testament to the dedication and hardwork of our wonderful staff who support and encourage our students during their secondary education.

It’s also heart-warming to hear from the now-graduated previous Year 12’s, many of whom, including the Dux this year, Izabella Mancewicz, have been travelling the world, and return with stories of “admiring and learning from the greats”, whose lessons are shared with students in the Dux’s speech.

The college congratulates all students who were recognised, as well as all the Year 12 students who contributed to such outstanding results for 2023. We are proud of all our students, and hope that they find their future pathways after secondary school just as rewarding.

While we strive for academic achievements, we believe in ensuring that students receive a well-rounded experience in high school. We offer many opportunities for students to engage with their community and find their passion.
