The following students were awarded Premier’s VCE Awards based on their outstanding subject results in 2016:

  • Jordan Berman – All-Round VCE High Achiever
  • Max Ingleby – English
  • Jadon Karp – English
  • Gabriella Katz – Health and Human Development
  • Courtney Rotstein – Health and Human Development

Premier’s Awards are presented to Victoria’s top students by the Department of Education and Training. Awards are based on students’ VCE results with the number of awards determined by the number of students in each subject.

While most students received their Premier’s Award for subject results achieved as Year 12 students, current Scopus Year 12 students, Gabriella Katz and Courtney Rotstein received their awards for excellence gained while studying Health and Human Development last year, while they were in Year 11.

Principal, Rabbi James Kennard said: “Mount Scopus is delighted and proud that five of our students have earned Premier’s Awards, including one ‘All-Round VCE High Achiever Award’ – in recognition of achieving a study score of 46 or higher in at least five VCE subjects in 2016, a truly phenomenal achievement by Jordan Berman. All these outstanding results are a fitting tribute to the efforts and ability of the students and the dedication and expertise of their teachers.”

These awards for academic excellence were gained by students who also fully immersed themselves in all aspects of Scopus life, and contributed much to the spirit of the College. Their dedication, hard work and commitment are to be commended.
