Hawthorn Students Are Back To School For 2021

More than one million students headed back to school last fortnight across Victoria.

Congratulations to all Preps and Year Sevens on the beginning of a new journey, and to Grade Six and Year 12 students on an exciting final year ahead. Congrats also to parents on the return to school after a year dominated by home learning and followed by summer holidays.

The future of Hawthorn education is brighter than ever, with outstanding VCE results achieved by our students at the end of 2020, and with three Hawthorn schools currently undergoing works, or about to under recent  funding.

Bialik College, on Auburn Road in Hawthorn, outshone every other school in the state with its Year 12 results in 2020.

Auburn High School received in the State Budget of 2020, $10.13 million to deliver Stage 2 of the school’s master plan, which will improve the existing building. This builds on the $5.5 million funding for Stage 1, which was delivered in the previous Budget. Notably, Auburn High School students excelled in 2020 as well, with 8.7% of study scores at 40 or above, and with their Dux achieving the school’s highest ever ATAR at 98.9.

Auburn South Primary School will be undergoing an upgrade and modernisation of its main wing, using $3.3 million delivered in the 2020 State Budget.

Hawthorn West Primary School has just appointed a builder for the upcoming commencements of its works under the State Government’s Inclusive Schools Fund.

I look forward to seeing what 2021 has in store for the students and schools of the Hawthorn electorate.
