Assisting our students to achieve their best in the VCE is a source of pride for the teachers and staff at Elwood College.
We measure our success by consistently achieving excellent VCE results and seeing our students move on to exciting futures we have helped them to plan.
The vast majority of our students go on to tertiary study with a high rate accepted into their first choice of university course. In fact, Elwood College is part of the inaugural roll-out for first round university offers for a December release.
The Aquatics and Marine Studies class braved the cold and rough conditions at Elwood beach to undertake the practical component of their Bronze Medallion assessment.
The Bronze Medallion certifies the recipient as a qualified lifesaver, teaching aquatic rescue techniques and personal survival skills.
Year 9 student Sequoia Pather reports on the 2019 SRC Congress
On Wednesday the 4th of December the SRC members of 2020 participated in SRC Congress.
The day consisted of the members of SRC establishing the standards of behaviour and expectations. We also read over and got an understanding of the new structure of the SRC and the executive roles and we brainstormed ways of improving the roles within SRC.
On the 6th of November, the Year 11 Legal Studies class had the opportunity to visit the County Court and the Parliament of Victoria to gain insight into the institutions and systems of government and justice, as well as develop a deeper understanding of how laws are made and the structure of parliament.
First the students visited the County Court, where they were able to have an informal conversation with a sitting judge, and observe a trial.
