On Wednesday 3 June a number of VSL staff members, VCE teachers, students and their parents attended the 2015 VCE Premier’s Awards at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. The Awards were presented by the Governor of Victoria (Alex Chernov), the Premier of Victoria (Daniel Andrews) and the Minister of Education (James Merlino).
The awards recognise excellence in achievement by the previous year’s VCE students. VSL students received a total of 15 awards, which is a VSL record.
It was also the highest number for an individual school in the state.
