Victorian Education Minister Martin Dixon said it was an exciting time for students and their families who could celebrate their achievements after a challenging year.
‘‘Congratulations to all the students who have received their results, whether they are getting single subjects scores or graduating with their VCE, they should be very proud of what they have accomplished,’’ Mr Dixon said.
‘‘Completing the VCE requires dedication and sacrifice, and students should now take the time to relax and reflect on this huge achievement.’’
Mr Dixon said VCE was a collective effort and people such as parents, teachers and school staff should also be thanked.
