VCE Results

Congratulations to the Class of 2023

The College is extremely proud to share our VCE results for the graduating Class of 2023.

Our congratulations go to our wonderful Year 12 students who have displayed outstanding levels of diligence and commitment to their studies throughout the year. It is a credit to the excellence and dedication of the teaching staff who have supported and educated these students for up to 13 years.

We are thrilled to announce College Dux for 2023 is Jack Durow who received an ATAR of 99.65 and is Dux of Music Contemporary Performance and Specialist Mathematics. Jack was also 2022 Dux of Applied Computing: Data Analytics and Mathematical Methods.

Jack joined Overnewton at Prep and was accelerated to Year 2 the following year. Jack has delivered consistently high academic results throughout his time at the College and, with an interest in Science and Data Science, Jack’s VCE Unit 3&4 subjects were Applied Computing: Data Analytics, English, Mathematical Methods, Music Contemporary Performance, Physics and Specialist Mathematics. Jack was also eligible to undertake the University of Melbourne Mathematics Extension Program.

Jack is also a talented and creative musician who has shone within the Overnewton Encore Co-Curricular pillar. Jack is gifted pianist, attaining his AMEB Piano Repertoire Grade 8 whilst in Year 10. As an accomplished guitarist, Jack has participated in several Performing Arts ensembles throughout his schooling and was awarded Colours for exceptional performance at Senior School Rock Band and Jazz Band.

Jack is often described by his teachers and peers as a kind, gentle and humble individual who generously shares his time and talent, most recently as accompanist for his peers during their VCE Music Performance submissions. 

Jack was the recipient of the 2023 Andy Matiszak Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Life of the College, an award presented to a Year 12 student who has contributed consistently during their time in Senior School across a range of areas.

The College congratulates Jack on his remarkable achievements, and we extend our best wishes for what will undoubtedly be a bright future ahead.

Proxime Accessit of the College for 2023 is Alexander West who received an ATAR of 99.15 and is Dux of Chemistry, Mathematical Methods and Physics. Alexander also received a perfect 50 study score for Chemistry. We congratulate Alexander on his remarkable achievements. 

As an open entry school, Overnewton continues to offer pathways for all students to finish Year 12.  Many parents agree that it is not just the ATAR score that is important to them for their child; as important are the friendships that they have made and fostered, and the College values that they can take with them from their time at Overnewton. We proudly celebrate the success of all our students who have given their best effort during their time at the College.

As educators, it is such an immense privilege to watch a child grow from Prep to Year 12, achieving their goals and graduating as empowered, thoughtful, community-minded citizens.

I am sure that all members of the Overnewton community will join us in congratulating the Class of 2023 for the completion of a fantastic year.
