A prestigious Premier’s Award has gone to Year 12 student Jaime Watts for her 2019 VCE subject work in Extended Investigation. Her subject score was 48, placing her second in the state.

Jaime, from the Berwick Campus, had already earned selection in Top Talks and presented at the State Library event in February. Her research topic was ‘How does ‘monster in narrative’ reflect humanity’s evolution?’

Jaime was thrilled to learn of her Premier’s Award, although she may have to wait a little longer for the official presentation which is now delayed due to COVID-19.

She said the researching and writing the paper was her favourite part of the subject.

“Getting to research something I’m interested in and having the excitement of piecing it together to create something new was a great feeling.”

She said she would highly recommend that students did Extended Investigation in VCE: “It’s improved my skill set and knowledge in practically all areas of my learning, and to this day, I still use my EI research skills and the contents from my paper in my other projects and subjects.” Jaime’s subject teacher was Alan James.
