VCAL Dux Award: Gabriel Tonkin
Gabriel said he thought he had performed well at school during the year - but taking home the top honour in VCAL was still rewarding.
"The teachers had indicated that I was one of the top of the class," he said.
"It was a pretty tough year, but we didn't do too much work during lockdown.
"It was hard because the things we do are very hands on so we needed the teachers to be there and explain how to do it and show us."
Gabriel said it was a matter of playing catch up when classes resumed.
"Once I understood what we needed to do I helped my fellow students," he said.
"If a teacher wasn't there or running late I felt a responsibility to stand up and be a bit of a leader."
Gabriel studied VCAL, personal development skills, literacy, VCE product design and VCE further maths.
"I want to try and get an apprenticeship in building and construction," he said.
"If not that just try and find a job for a bit to figure out what I want to do besides being in the building industry."
