VCAL students from eight secondary schools within Casey have been recognised during an awards night on Tuesday 3 December.
The ceremony, which was held at Rivergum Performing Arts Centre in Hampton Park, acknowledged the outstanding achievements of students from schools within the Casey Network.
Principal of Narre Warren South P-12 College, Rob Duncan, spoke on behalf of all of the schools when he said “As a network of schools, we are incredibly proud of the efforts of all of our VCAL students.”
“Tonight showcased some of the amazing work that these students do. We have acknowledged some amazing fund raising efforts; efforts to raise cultural awareness and tolerance and projects which sought to tackle some very big societal issues including environmental degradation and family violence.
“VCAL provides a platform for students to give voice to the big issues and to problem solve to help find solutions. Every winner acknowledged tonight has excelled,” Mr Duncan said.
The awards were the culmination of an outstanding years work by many students across the Casey Network.
Schools in attendance at the ceremony included Alkira Secondary, Berwick Secondary, Cranbourne East Secondary, Lyndhurst Secondary, Hallam Senior, Kambrya College, Hampton Park Secondary and Narre Warren South P-12 – with each school claiming two gongs.
