The Lynne Kosky Memorial VCAL scholarships are in memory of the late Victorian Minister for Education and Training in recognition of the Minister’s efforts and determination to introduce the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL). Each year two scholarships will be awarded to two Year 12 VCAL students that display excellence and perseverance in their VCAL studies. The scholarships of $25,000 over five years are to support the recipient in their further studies, traineeship or apprenticeship pursuits. We congratulate Gemma-Mae Stemp from Kurunjang Secondary College as an inaugural winner of the scholarship this year. Her college Principal, Sandra Eglezos, stated that Gemma-Mae has constantly demonstrated the college principles of perseverance, high expectations, and respect and is a well-liked and admired student leader at the college.
