“For my VCE I took English Language, Renaissance Italy (History), Media Studies, Psychology, and International Studies (In Year 11). I was and still am amazed by the breadth of subjects offered by a school as small as Preshil, and by the amazing support I received from all of my teachers on a one-to-one basis. I am now studying a Bachelor of Arts at Monash University (Clayton), double majoring in History (Medieval & Renaissance) and Archeology & Ancient Cultures, with a view to continue on to postgraduate study and maybe even an academic career. Beyond just the academic support, I feel that Preshil really taught me how to be an active member in a community, which is really how I see the school. It has given me so much, and I enjoyed the opportunity to give back by returning to teach a creative elective in Media & Film Making for year 7-10 students.
