So much more than an ATAR

Mentone Grammar takes great pride in celebrating the success and achievements of our students across academic, sporting, creative and personal pursuits.

The Mentone Grammar Community celebrates the Class of 2021 for their incredible achievements, dedication and determination throughout the year, which is reflected in our VCE and VCAL results.

Mentone Grammar Principal, Mal Cater, said he is incredibly proud of what they have achieved, despite all they have been through with the pandemic.

“Now is a time for celebration and to applaud these incredible young people for their commitment and resilience throughout their final years.

… when I think back on my time at Mentone Grammar, it is not my ATAR or the fact that I got Dux which stands out. Rather, it is what I learnt and experienced, whether it was academics, sport, friendships made, music or about myself. And for that, I can only thank my teachers, coaches, friends and family.
