WHAT IS THE VCE?
The VCE is the certificate received by most students who satisfactorily complete secondary education. The VCE aims to provide pathways to University, TAFE (Technical and Further Education) and employment.
For further information on options within the VCE, course structure and assessment see the VCAA website.

SAC (School Assessed Coursework) CALENDAR
Each year a calendar of SAC dates is published. This is of particular importance to any student undertaking a Year 12 subject at Killester College.
SUPPLEMENTARY MEDICAL FORM
When a student is absent from a SAC (Year 12) or Outcome (Year 11) they must present a medical certificate to verify the absence. Students absent from a SAC must also present a Supplementary Medical Form which is to be completed by an authorised Medical Practitioner. This form along with the medical certificate is to be presented to the student’s homeroom teacher immediately upon return to school.
Each year the Senior Pathways team provides information to students and parents via a number of briefings. The dates for these briefings are published on the college calendar and the presentations offered at these briefings are:
