2012 Year 12 Graduation ceremonies

On 18 December 2012, VUSC held ceremonies for Year 12 students graduating in 2012, a proud moment and a relief to many. Some students will pursue further academic studies, while others will seek employment.

Following speeches by College staff and sponsors, Steven Rowley, Alumni Association President, made a deserving award to one student from the VUSC Brimbank campus, and one student from the Deer Park campus. He also spoke about the Association, its aims, and achievements during 2012. It was a successful event and the Association is looking forward to participating in the 2013 ceremony.

Goals for 2013

One of our principal goals is to organize student reunions, particularly for the class of 1993. This will be followed by reunions for 1963, 1973, 1983 and 2003. Anyone interested in participating, please email to Barrie Bowers, Association Secretary at vuscassociation@hotmail.com

The Association website http://alumni.vusc.vic.edu.au now more than 5,100 student records, and we are seeking to update these with records from the Deer Park and Kealba Secondary Colleges. The database provides a powerful tool to support past students and VUSC Administration. An example of this support was demonstrated when a student contacted VUSC seeking confirmation of school attendance. The College could not locate his record and sought help from the Association. We were able to locate the student and provide verification of identity and attendance. This was used to update College records and helped the past student.

Become a registered Member and have the ability to search the student database. Contact the Association Secretary at vuscassociation@hotmail.com for details about membership. You can also refer to the FAQ section of our website, which will provide most of the required information.

Another Association aim is to support VUSC Administration in helping students obtain work experience positions, as well as getting a full-time job.

If you want to participate in Association activities, or simply familiarize yourself with what is going on, attend one of our regular meetings held on the first Wednesday of every month at 7:30 pm in the VUSC Brimbank Staff Room, James Street.
