Humanities Board

This term the Humanities noticeboard seeks to provoke debate about different perspectives on our military history. The 100th anniversary of ANZAC Day links with the Year 9 curriculum later in the year when they study The Great War, also known without irony at the time as 'The war to end all wars'. Year 10s will be studying the Second World War this term and armed conflict is a recurring feature in many VCE subjects including 20th Century History, Revolutions and Global Politics. This display up on Level 3 highlights some of the questions about how we commemorate such conflicts, what we should celebrate about them and who should be included in this celebration?

Princes Hill Secondary College is proud of the outstanding results achieved by the Yr 12 of 2014. We congratulate students and staff on their efforts, and parents and community for their support during the students’ six years at PHSC. Of all Victorian government secondary schools PHSC has maintained a position in the top 5% of government secondary schools when calculated by median study score and percentage of scores 40-plus(adjusted for schools with less than 20 students at year 12 level). PHSC is one of only two schools that are co-educational, open entry, and without a selective entry program in the top 16 government schools. In addition, PHSC runs a VCAL program to complement its VCE, providing the opportunity for all students to complete Year 12 in a program suited to their needs. PHSC is proud that we are able to offer such an inclusive program.
Of the group who completed a scored VCE (10 students did unscored) 26% achieved an ATAR of 90 or above (the state proportion is approximately 8%*). The top ATAR was 99.45. Four students achieved an ATAR over 99. 46% of students achieved an ATAR of 80 or more64% received an ATAR of 70 or more. The median ATAR for PHSC in 2014 was 79 (state 63.3).
