VCE results getting better all the time THE hard work is over for VCE students across the state with students getting their exam results on Monday this week. Patterson River Secondary College students in Year 12 managed to top last year’s ATAR results. School dux William Hopkinson achieved an ATAR score of 99.15 and seven more students gained a score above 90. A record 37 students achieved a 40-plus study score for one of their subjects. Assistant principal Daniel Dew praised this year’s graduates for rising to the occasion and getting results when it mattered most. “We had a really good group of kids last year and while we always think we’ll get good results it’s been a cohort whose testing through NAPLAN and such hasn’t been as strong so to get better VCE results is great.” Education Minister James Merlino said 49,426 students will graduate with a VCE this year and the completion rate is 97.7 per cent. “Completing VCE is a significant achievement in anyone’s life and I congratulate more than 49,000 students across the state for reaching this milestone. You should be very proud of what you have achieved,” he said. “If you didn’t get the results you wanted, seek advice from your school and remember that life offers many pathways to success.”

Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au THE sealer has been kicked on St Kilda Football Club’s return from Seaford to its “spiritual home” at Moorabbin. The Saints had a win at the weekend when the state government announced it will increase funding from $8 million to $12 million towards a $28.4 million redevelopment of Moorabbin Reserve at Linton St. Kingston Council agreed in April to contribute $5 million of ratepayer funds towards the project. The AFL and AFL Victoria will contribute $5 million and the Saints will kick in about $5 million.

The redevelopment is now expected to be completed by mid2017. “This is a fantastic result for the Club, our supporters and the local community,” St Kilda CEO Matt Finnis said in a statement issued by the club. “A new elite training, administration and community facility at Moorabbin will underpin our future success and build on the positive momentum at the Saints.” Labor Sports Minister John Eren said Moorabbin is “St Kilda’s sacred turf”. “We’re upgrading it, so the Saints can return to their spiritual home and the community has a state-of-the-art facility it can be

proud of,” he said. The new facility will include a purpose-built training and administration base, facilities specifically for local football leagues and community access and extra room for a possible stand-alone St Kilda VFL team. Kingston mayor Tamsin Bearsley welcomed the additional state government funding for the project. “This is a great opportunity to invest in our community by providing a community football hub, a much-needed indoor sports court and improved parkland. And of course we are thrilled to see the return of the Saints to their traditional heartland in Moorabbin,” she said.
