Hannah scored an ATAR of 99.35 with perfect scores of 50 in English and Psychology, along with 45 in History - Revolutions and 42 in Global Politics. Hannah’s outstanding achievement is testament to her work ethic and diligence during the past year and provides an amazing example for our Year 12 Class of 2018.

We are excited to watch the next part of the Year 12 Class of 2017 journey, which for many involves accepting university placements. Our Old Scholars have been offered university courses ranging from Arts to Forensic Science, Computing Studies to Event Management, Nursing to Wildlife and Conversation Biology, Music Production to Speech and Language Pathology.
We wish our old scholars all the best and remind them that they are always welcome back in our Victory Lutheran College community.
