Ivy arrived in Melbourne two years ago from Malaysia and has since impressed all her teachers with her outstanding academic performance, which included achieving the top grade in four of her courses. 

She was also commended on her willingness to assist fellow students with difficult concepts and her active participation in all her classes. 

Ivy's goal now is to continue her studies to become a Certified Practising Accountant so that she may advance in her career and accept management responsibility in future. 

Bronwyn arrived in Melbourne three years ago with her family from Johannesburg, South Africa. 

Her academic achievements include scoring the top grade in seven of her courses which prompted strong recommendations from several lecturers for this award. 

Described as an enthusiastic, conscientious student who made positive contributions in all her classes, Bronwyn also actively engaged with students from other nationalities.

Looking to the future, Bronwyn hopes to extend her software and web development skills and eventually take on a project management role in Australia.

Both Ivy and Bronwyn were among 153 graduates from 20 nations who attended the graduation ceremony in Melbourne.

Guest speaker at the event was former State minister, the Honourable Phil Honeywood .
