VCE Achievement Awards

Minaret College acknowledges Year 12 students who perform very well academically and achieve high scores. Their efforts are recognised as they set a good example for others to emulate.

The purpose of these awards is twofold:

1. Encourages students to put in more effort to be able to access the tertiary program of their choice.

2. Supports students financially with their initial expenses for tertiary education.

The criteria for rewarding high achievers are as follows:
