Premiers Awards VCE 2015

Each year the Victorian Department of Education and Training recognises excellence in learning achievement demonstrated by students undertaking the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE).

The 2015 Premier’s VCE Awards, now in their 21st year, were presented on Wednesday this week at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre. In total there were 305 awards presented to 279 students from 117 schools.

Over the years, a significant number of GVGS students have achieved this wonderful distinction. This year was a particularly significant one for our School with a total of three students recognised with Premier’s Awards. This is an outstanding achievement by each of these students. Premier’s Awards are presented to the students achieving the highest results in each VCE study in a given year.

We congratulate each of these students on their dedication to learning and the organisation and discipline they demonstrated throughout their 2014 studies. They have seized the opportunities presented and made the very most of them. I am sure they can take confidence from this recognition in their continuing efforts in 2015 and beyond. Their examples are certainly ones that inspire students and staff alike.

The outstanding achievements by these students are a powerful reminder that regional students have the capacity to achieve excellence comparable with the best in the state. They also reflect the outstanding quality of teaching that our staff offer. On behalf of the School community, I congratulate teachers Mrs Mary Bayly and Ms Ruci Dewi. Their hard work, encouragement and commitment to learning were clearly inspirational for our students.

Mobile Phones and Sleep

Mobile Phone Addicts Most Sleep Deprived: Study

The Woolcock Institute of Medical Research has confirmed a long held suspicion of many parents and teachers, ` teenagers who routinely snuggle up in bed at night with their computer or mobile phone are more than twice as likely to be sleep deprived than other adolescents`. Over 70% of 11-17 year olds were reporting two or more devices could be found in their bedroom at night. One of the researchers, Dr Marschall said,` the findings suggest that night time technology use is harmful for both sleep and circadian systems, hurting teen health and learning potential`.  Researchers found that light emitted by computers, mobile phones and TVs is known to suppress the sleep hormone melatonin and delay sleep/wake patterns. These devices are also interactive, keeping the user alert and awake. Teenagers need NINE (9) hours of sleep a night on average and should aim for at least EIGHT (8)hours a night on weeknights. Sleep deprivation has been linked to mood disorders, learning problems, school absenteeism, poor self- esteem and weight gain.
