Year 12 is going to be a significant and challenging year for your child. We believe that the Gleneagles VCE program is going to be rewarding, supportive and designed to get the best outcomes possible for all VCE students. To ensure your child has the best chance of starting the year well and equipped with all the skills needed to succeed, we will be holding a Year 12 Study Conference at various Universities within Melbourne.

It is felt that these aims can be best achieved away from school and the classroom. Students benefit greatly from a good working relationship with each other and with staff. A number of Year 12 teachers will be present throughout the Conference to assist with discussion groups, tutorials and coaching in their subject fields.It is an expectation that all year 12 students will attend all three days of the Conference, it is an essential/required/mandatory part of the VCE learning program.To reduce the cost to families the school is subsiding the study skills consultant costs as we believe this Conference is essential in setting the tone and expectation we have for all our VCE Students.
