Ly Nguyen and Christian Canete encouraged our students from Year 12, 11, 10 and 9 to stay focused and work hard. Ly highlighted to the students that the best results come from being proactive and taking initiative; knowing your distractions and weaknesses; knowing and understanding your content, especially the rules and theories; and most importantly enjoy your time at St Andrews College. Christian urged the students to collaborate with each other, share their notes and ideas and most of all to support each other to be more productive and stay motivated on the goals you have set.

The College Leadership Team extends their congratulations to the students and commends the teachers who mentored them along the way.

“The work the College has been doing to bring about greater precision and engagement in students’ learning is proving to be instrumental in these fine outcomes”, said Mr Nicholas Vidot, Principal.

“Each student has enhanced their outcomes through participation in the full life of the College, Congratulations!”
