STAWELL - Stawell Secondary College's Victorian Certificate of Education students have graduated with flying colours, recording a one hundred percent pass rate for this year.
Year 12 co-ordinator, Aaron Dalziel, was delighted with the results obtained by the class of 2012.
"Overall it was very pleasing. The results were good," Mr Dalziel said.
"Naturally you'd want more higher results but generally speaking, the kids worked really well and were happy with the results they got."
Mr Dalziel said most students achieved the results they wanted in order to get into their chosen course and career pathways, which was pleasing.
He hailed the 100 per cent pass rate as 'really pleasing.'
One of those students who was happy with his Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) results was Drew Silk, who topped the Stawell Secondary College class of 2012 with an ATAR score of 92.8.
Drew said the score was 'fairly close' to what he had set out to achieve.
He studied chemistry, physics, specialist maths, maths methods and English and said it was 'fairly tough at times.'
"With the support of my family, my girlfriend Kristen and working with friends, it makes it easier," Drew said.
"Also, having goals at the start of the year. I knew what I had to get and what I want to be, which also makes it much easier."
Next year, Drew hopes to attend Monash University where he will study a double degree in business and engineering.
It will be a tough five year course, but Drew is optimistic that it will open many doors in terms of career opportunities.
"Hopefully it's worth it. It should be," he said.
Meanwhile, among the other Secondary College students to perform well were Tayla Lembo and Stephanie Cooper.
Tayla studied psychology, biology, further maths, English, business management and health and human development to return an ATAR score of 87.25.
She hopes to study a criminology law course, possibly at Deakin University in Geelong.
Stephanie also studied health and human development, psychology, further maths as well as English and chemistry and received 87.15.
She is currently working at Specsavers in Horsham and Fisher's IGA Stawell and will continue to work at both places next year before heading off to university in 2014.
Stephanie is hoping to study forensic psychology following her gap year but isn't sure where just yet.
Another year 12 student who will be continuing with higher education is Charlotte Hilbig.
Charlotte returned an ATAR score of 72.15 and is looking to move across the border to study archaeology at Adelaide's Flinders University.
