VCE Results 2020

Trinity Grammar School, Kew - VCE Results 2021

I would like to extend my congratulations to all Trinity Grammar School students for their efforts in 2021. These past two years have been extraordinary to say the least, but particularly so for this cohort of Year 12s who began their VCE studies in early 2020, on the cusp of the COVID-19 pandemic. Reflecting on their continued commitment, resilience and positivity during this time, their results – whatever they have achieved – are worthy of acknowledgement and celebration.  

The results this year are exceptional, with our cohort achieving a median ATAR score of 86.65, a median Study Score of 34 and eight perfect Study Scores (including one Ruyton student from our Coordinate Program). 76% of our students scored in the top 25% of the state, 40.1% of our students received an ATAR of 90 or above, and 22% achieved 95 or above.

As a school community we are proud of our students’ efforts and achievements. They accepted the challenges they were faced with and have recorded some extraordinary results. We are proud of them as people and as students, and we know they are ready to move onto the next opportunities ahead.

These results are also testament to the many people who supported and encouraged our students throughout their education – the parent community, the teachers and support staff here at Trinity, and the wider TGS family. We are immensely proud of this cohort, not just for their academic performance and co-curricular achievements, but for their courage, compassion and contribution to the community throughout their time with us.

By their nature, Trinity students are aspirational. Amongst this suite of results, some students will have met their goals, some will have exceeded them, and some may initially be disappointed. Our greatest hope for our young people is that they continue to strive to be the best they can be in every chapter of their lives, and I know that the work that they have done will stand them in good stead well into the future, long after the impact of their ATAR has diminished.

Larry Pang – ATAR of 99.95

Throughout his time at Trinity, Larry demonstrated an exceptional commitment to his studies, continued compassion for his peers and a love for the TGS community.

Leadership and mentorship are important to Larry. He was a keen participant in our cross-age mentoring programs, leading Year 7 students during their Outdoor Education camps and establishing the Physics Society, a student-led co-curricular club for all year levels.

A dedicated sportsman, Larry was a member of our Firsts Badminton team for three years and, this year, was appointed Co-Captain. He was also a member of our Open Table Tennis squad.

Larry led by example in all that he did. As Vice-Captain of Hindley House, he was always willing to support and encourage his peers and the younger students. 

A keen scholar, Larry represented TGS in a number of academic competitions, receiving many awards and honours. He received a distinction in the Australian Intermediate Maths Olympiad, was invited to the National Physics Olympiad Summer School in 2021, and was a member of the TGS team that were awarded a Silver Medal in the 2021 University of Melbourne School Olympics. In 2020, Larry also received the Trinity Grammar School, Kew H G L Palmer Prize for Mathematical Methods.
