Reaching out and giving back to the community is an integral part of the Elisabeth Murdoch College culture. We take enormous pride in students who continue to put up their hand to initiate and participate in voluntary programs across the college and wider community. Our VCAL students have a long track record of assisting with projects and programs across a range of organisations. The current year 12 VCAL classes are working on their 'Block' challenge plans which involves students to plan a number of environmental improvements across the college and build on last year’s success. The Advanced Community College Parks and Gardens program are also working very well at the Langwarrin Community Centre on a number of projects and ground maintenance.
The new academic year has commenced in very positive fashion. Congratulations to all students on their
commitment and participation demonstrated so far. Our Year 7 students are once again a terrific group of
young people who have impressed all of their teachers with their skills and enthusiasm. Their willingness to
engage and interact has been noticeable and will hopefully continue throughout their careers at Elisabeth
This is the last message for the year and I would like to thank the entire Elisabeth Murdoch College community for their ongoing support. It has been a highly successful year for the College both inside and outside of the classroom.
It gives me great pleasure to report our students have again achieved some outstanding VCE results. There were a significant number of outstanding individual performances with 64% of students ranking above the national average. This was reflective in the increase in study scores above 40 to 5.1% - the highest in the history of the College. The Year 12 cohort in 2016 worked very well together and with their teachers. The outstanding results are a reflection of their hard work and dedication.
