About Us

Welcome to Viewbank College.

‘Caring for Excellence’

Viewbank College is an outstanding learning environment and its strength as a community lies in its people. Our students are at the centre of everything that we do.

We are proud of our strong academic standing in the community. The College is committed to providing quality teaching and learning and to challenge students to grow as learners and as individuals. We have high expectations of all our students and they thrive in an academically challenging environment, but one that is safe and well supported. We are able to achieve strong academic results due to the positive attitudes of our students and the support of passionate and dedicated teachers.

The future is full of possibilities and uncertainty. As a community we are committed to developing students who are globally aware learners. Those who can think critically, learn collaboratively and have a growing awareness of the political, social, economic and environmental challenges the world is facing.

We are equally committed, through our focus on Respectful Relationships, to build empathy in our students. Our College Pledge promotes inclusivity, diversity and respect. We aim to empower all students with a strong sense of self-worth and the confidence to take their place as global citizens who can help shape a positive future.

The College has breadth in our curriculum program and innovative extracurricular choices. Students can explore and develop interests and passions through our Accelerated program; LOTE program; STEAM initiatives; Music and Performing and Visual Arts; debating and public speaking; Sports and Student Leadership. Please browse through our website to gain a better understanding of the opportunities for students to participate in a vibrant community and build connections with other students and staff throughout the College.

Viewbank College actively encourages parent participation through the College Council or a variety of parent support groups: Friends of Music, Friends of Viewbank, Friends of STEAM, Friends of Health and Wellbeing and Friends of the Visual and Performing Arts. We believe that educating young people is a shared commitment and we value the voice of our parents in doing so.

Our future is exciting and I look forward to leading Viewbank College with a determination to foster the strong sense of community, whilst inviting fresh and creative thinking to meet the learning needs of students into the future.

2018 VCE Results

A very big congratulations to the Class of 2018

The College is proud of the achievements of our VCE class, 168 who have scored ATAR's have proved that hard work has resulted in creditable results.  The grid below gives the breakdown:

ATAR Range Number of Students
90 - 99 41 (21 above 95)
80 - 89 34
70 - 79 39
60 - 69 23
50 - 59 31

The 2018 College VCE Data:

  • the median scores was 32
  • the percentage of Study Scores for 40 and above was 10.4%
  • 23 students qualified for the Victorian Baccalaureate

A hearty congratulations to the four top achieving students:

  • Dux for 2018 - Tianle (Jessica) Wang 99.95.  
  • Second Top student - Angela Chan 99.10. 
  • Third Top student - Sean Mortell 98.55.  
  • Fourth Top student - Mitchell Kouryialas 98.5

Perfect 50:

The two following students achieved perfect scores of 50:

  • Mitchell Kouryialas - Business Management
  • Kasey Hong (Year 11) - Business Management

To get the perfect score is rare so we are proud to have two students achieve this feat of scholarship.

The College is delighted with these results.  Success at VCE depends on the effort and capacity of students to be organised, meet deadlines and always work closely with their teachers.

VCE ATAR scores are about opening up opportunities for defnite tertiary pathways and we are delighted that our students have worked hard to create for themselves those pathways.  I wish to acknowledge the hard work of our teachers, not only their VCE teachers but those of previous years who have contributed and helped set students up.  Well done Class of 2018!
