Perfect scores: (l-r) Nicholas Prowse, Gemma Sorrell, Tess Wilkens and Victor Benko

Four Beaconhills College students earned a perfect 50 out of 50 in one of their VCE subjects this year.

Tess Wilkens scored 50 for English, Gemma Sorrell 50 in Outdoor and Environmental Studies and Nicholas Prowse 50 for Systems Engineering. Year 11 student Victor Benko achieved 50 in Systems Engineering.

Headmaster Tony Sheumack said it was an outstanding achievement across the diverse range of VCE subjects offered at Beaconhills College.

Gemma joined the College in Year 7 and was school captain at the Pakenham Campus this year. She has been an enthusiastic member of the school community, participating in World Challenge, debating and a wide range of sports. In July she won the prestigious Pierre de Coubertin sporting award for all-round sporting excellence.

She praised her teacher Emma Cooper for helping her achieve her Outdoor and Environmental Studies score.

“She was so helpful – especially at lunchtimes and all the after-school sessions leading up to the exams,” said Gemma, who plans to pursue a career in Occupational Therapy.

Victor Benko is hoping his fixed wing aircraft, which he built in Systems Engineering, will make it to the Melbourne Museum exhibition in 2017. It has been shortlisted for Top Designs in the annual VCE Season of Excellence awards.
