Celebrating success all round

by Nicole Gundi | Dec 23, 2016

The festive season is well and truly alive and even more so for the class of 2016.

Now that they’ve graduated, celebrated schoolies and received their ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) results, after 13 or so years of schooling, 2017 is sure to be an exciting new chapter as they continue on with their life journey-no matter what form it takes.

The stories have been inspirational from a Syrian refugee, who only started learning English two years ago, being named the dux of his school to Victoria’s oldest VCE student at 70 years old after she left school at 13.

Congratulations to the thousands of school graduates, however we mustn't forget all the mums, dads, guardians and grandparents who have been doing their bit behind the scenes.

After 13 years of education, not only have you supported your children financially and given them the best education possible, it's because of the aspirations you have for them which is one of the most critical factors in their educational success as revealed in the ASG Parents Report Card

So while completing their year 12 may have been a struggle on some days with the feelings of wanting to give up, it’s your aspirations which have lifted them up and given them the motivation to succeed and to continue studying, wanting to do well.

So feel proud in your child’s achievements and the large role you’ve played in getting them to where they are today. Whether they choose to go on a gap year and travel the world in 2017 or continue on with their lifelong education journey, share in their success knowing that you’ve shaped your child into the person they are and supported them through the most crucial years of their life.

ASG CEO John Velegrinis says education has become a constant and ongoing aspect in people’s lives.

“It is a lifelong process that provides the opportunity for people to pursue their passions, meet their career aspirations and professional goals.

Along with the personal fulfillment people experience from learning and education, the employment landscape is rapidly changing and our workplaces are becoming increasingly competitive, where young people need to be adapting to emerging trends and gaining the required core skills and competencies”.  

The majority of first round offers for higher education placements will be released in mid January.

Wishing you and your child the best of luck and a rewarding and satisfying 2017.
