2017 VCE Results

The College congratulates all Year 12 students who completed their VCE this year. We are proud to announce and congratulate our 2017 College Dux, Faith Andres with an ATAR score of 98.35. 8.5% of our Year 12 cohort received a Study Score of 40+. Well done to all our Year 12 students and good luck with first round university offers in the New Year.

Faith on her outstanding VCE achievements:

"All the hard work and sacrifice I experienced throughout Year 12 was suddenly forgotten and replaced with an overwhelming feeling of joy and relief! I couldn't have achieved such an amazing score without the help and support of my teachers, friends and family. I am PROUD to be an Ave girls!"

Bike n Blend

Valley Youth work with young people who live, study and socialise in Moonee Valley to build their strength, independence, skills and capabilities. The group visited Ave Maria College and held a Bike n Blend session in Francis Piazza. The fun lunchtime activity saw students cycling up a storm. Two stationary bikes fitted with blenders enabled the students to 'blend' their own fresh fruit smoothies.

Venilale Immersion Trip

A team of five students and three staff members have returned safely from their pilgrimage to Timor-Leste where they worked with the College's sister school, St Maria Mazzarello. The students spent time with local students in Venilale teaching English and helping them with their studies.


Creating Hope For Angel

Ave Maria College's Year 12 cohort have helped raise $2150 for Moira Kelly's Creating Hope Foundation. All proceeds will go directly towards an operation for five year old Angel.

Angel arrived from Pakistan over 18 months ago with her mother Siniya, leaving her father and brother behind in hope of a miracle operation to save her life. Malnourished and suffering from CLOVES syndrome, Angel experiences daily pain from a rare condition causing her feet to swell. She is now facing a double leg amputation.

After Angel came to visit the Year 12 students in August, Jasmine Christodoulou championed the Year 12 group's fundraising efforts. Today Angel came back to the College where Jasmine presented her with a cheque for the money raised from our wonderful senior students and their families. Angel thanked the students and sang them a song- Roses by The Chainsmokers.

Humanitarian Moira Kelly, who has been responsible for Angel's plight thus far, told the students that Angel hopes to be like Moira's adopted son Ahmed- but wearing pink shoes. Ahmed, a double leg amputee, represented Australia at the London and Rio De Janeiro Paralympics.

Congratulations and well done to all those involved rasing funds. A special mention to Jasmine for leading the efforts. If you'd like to donate to the Creating Hope Foundation please click here.
