Peninsula International School Australia (PISA), our first international school in the education division, recently held a Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) Workshop for Parents at the school in Setia Alam. Two special guest speakers were invited to shed light on the VCE.
On 23 August, a special event was held to help parents of children enrolled in the school understand the Victorian Curriculum, the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), and how this Certificate can facilitate entry to Australian universities and those around the world. The VCE is a certificate received by students who successfully complete the Victorian Curriculum at PISA.
Ms Emily Vallance, Senior School Principal of PISA, gave an in-depth presentation about the VCE. Thereafter, Ms Vallance and the two guest speakers – Mr Blair Cooper (VCE Director of Peninsula Grammar) and Ms Ong Kar Yee (Senior Country Officer, University of Melbourne) – facilitated a one-hour forum discussing the topics set for the event.
A number of parents, mainly those of existing students and several parents who are considering the school for their children, attended the workshop. The attendees expressed appreciation to the school for organising this event and look forward to more of these so that they could bring friends who are keen to know more about the VCE.
