A BALLAJURA Community College graduate was one of eight students awarded with a vocational education and training (VET) exhibition for outstanding achievement at the School Curriculum and Standards Authority Awards 2017 last month.

Business and financial services, information and communications technology student Poppy Justice headed the college’s tally of 13 students who were recognised at the ceremony on December 22.

The award was for the top student who demonstrated the most outstanding performance in a Certificate II or higher qualification in their final year.

Principal Cheryl Townsend said Poppy also won the VET certificate of excellence for her course and was interviewed for a Beazley Medal.

“This certificate is only awarded to students who are in the top 0.5 per cent of eligible candidates,” she said.

“Tahlia Cavanough was also among the best VET students in the state – she received a VET certificate of excellence for her studies in tourism, hospitality and events.

“The college is also exceptionally proud of the following students who gained certificates of merit or distinction.”

Graduates James Fazio and Matthew McDougall won certificates of distinction while Febriana Ajelie, Kimberly Armstrong, Timothy Burton, Rosemary Clements, Melani De Alwis, Johnson Nguyen, Tracy Nguyen, George Shomali and Tristan Tan received certificate of merit.
