  • David Morris delivered a presentation on Goal setting and Motivation to our Year 12 students on a study skills camp early this year. He tailored the session to address the brief provided and ensured his comments were relevant for all students in the audience, addressing the needs and interests of both VCAL and VCE pathways. David’s presentation was engaging and provided a colourful mix of film footage, pop culture references and anecdotes that effectively illustrated the points he made. His teaching background ensured the presentation was well structured so the message was clearly communicated and a summary at the end provided a useful recap. The students feedback was overwhelmingly positive. I am very happy to recommend this presenter and the services provided by the organisation- VCE Help.

  • Colac Secondary College engaged VCE Help to work with year 12 students, early in the year, providing information, inspiration and motivation for the year ahead. Students were withdrawn from classes for a day to be involved in four sessions which included Goals, inspiration and motivation, Health and time mastery, Learning how to learn and note making and SAC and exam preparation. Our presenter for the day was Winter Olympic Aerial Skier, David Morris. David readily won the respect of students with his personal story and involvement in an Olympic sport. His presentations were energetic, engaging and humorous. The students appreciated his youthful approach and ability to communicate at their level. Through his own personal success, he clearly demonstrated the benefits of engaging with the strategies he spoke about.

  • It has provided some useful information to aid with study processes and programs. It was useful to see how different approaches can be used to deal with Yr 12 study. It gave insight how past students dealt with Yr 12 and to study and harness our brain power and abilities.

  • Interesting. Helped out with not only VCE techniques but life skills that I will apply and use in my every day life. I really enjoyed the meditation, note-making, memory and time mastery. Would highly recommend to other VCE students who are not quite sure not only about VCE but about Life!

  • On the 18th of November, a man named Dr. Matthew Bateman came to our Year 9 and 10 Mind, Body and Soul class. He spoke to us about our goals and dreams for the future. He told us to do many activities that include us talking about what we want out of life. He included conversations that made us think about our life. Also if we want to do something in our life that we can do it no matter what anyone says to us. He spoke to us about what it really means to be successful and happy. He told us to make a plan for our future and actually do it, don’t wait around thinking it will magically happen. We learnt about the 3 laws of Kaizen. Kaizen is constant and never ending improvement. He spoke to us about different affirmations. One of them was, “Beliefs are only opinions, not facts.” We really enjoyed him coming to talk to us and most people took in his information and got a lot out of it. We hope he comes again because the information was very useful to us.

  • Dear Dr Bateman, On behalf of the students and myself in the Mind, Body and Soul class of 2004 Banksia Secondary College, I would like to thank you for your inspiration presentation. The information was so clear, easy to follow and very relevant to my Yr 9/10 students. As you know a “one-off” information session is never enough. We had follow up classes where we discussed your information and recommendations and some students took up the challenges. For their exam, students gave a talk on any topic/s that inspired them. Your presentation was often mentioned. Actually several students said they want to be in the “5%”! This would have to be one of those experiences that will remain in my memory bank for ever. I achieve one of my goals! Thankyou for giving my students the opportunity to hear such a high quality motivational talk that I’m sure will have an impact on their future lives. May I take this opportunity to wish you well in your endeavours in this field. I hope you will be available when I teach this subject in mid 2005. Wishing you and yours greetings for the festive season.

  • My son attended one of Peak Potential Success Centres Australasia Pty Ltd talks and raved about it for weeks as did his friends. He thought it was absolutely fantastic! I don’t know what was taught, but he has motivational words of wisdom posted up all over his bedroom wall. He’s set himself goals and has laid down plans to reach them. I’ve noticed his attitude has changed dramatically and he’s now even more motivated and organised. Sounds like the guys hit the nail on the head and were a great success. This course should be run in every school, and should be part of the curriculum. Well done guys!

I only did year eleven this year, so I was wondering if you could keep me on the list for next year? I’m looking forward to actually taking part in the seminars you advertise, and to use the resources available ( I only did legal 3/4). Thanks for the supportive emails ad a fantastic website, keep up the good work.

  • Dear Heath, Thanks for all your help for the last 2 years of my schooling. Me and other students alike have been uplifted by your awesome e-mails which make a huge impact to students doing year 12 during the year. It is encouraging to know that the feelings we experience such as stress and anxiety are normal and your helpful hints, ways to combat stress and tips on time management have been more than helpful throughout the year. I want to again compliment you for your hard work and dedication in making the website the best it could possibly for students. I especially enjoy listening to podcasts, and may suggest that this is continued throughout the next year and beyond. But probably most of all I enjoyed those messages which told us to hold on and keep working towards our goals and I would definately like to see more of this for students in the future. I was extremely proud of my score of 89.75 and my friends who have put it alot of effort in to deserve it and to get into their dream course. This was more than enough for me to get into Nursing and I thank you for your contribution to making this happen. Thanks again.

Thank you! First preference was achieved – equals an ecstatic result!!! Now it’s up to uni marks and hard work to achieve further accomplishments, but advice on study methods have helped to realise what needs to be done in the future.

  • Dear Heath, I just wanted to take the time to thank you so much for the emails that I have been receiving from you. … But many many months after “the age” expo i’ve found that I’m no longer so stressed about my school work and also I’m not so teary after finishing a SAC and thinking that I’ve failed. Its changed my attitude to my studies and has given me sooo much more confidence and helped me to unlock my potential…something that i didn’t know that i had inside me. This has been my life-saver as its helped to see a more positive outlook on life and also helped me to study better! As with the emails i’ve been revieving, i’ve found them to be a great help to me and also very insightful!

  • To all at vce help, I just wanted to give you a quick email to thank you for your wonderful efforts and help during the year... I loved your emails during the year, as they kept me on track towards my goals and allowed me to know that almost all other yr 12′s at the time where feeling exactly the same as me! I am more than willing to help you if you need anything. I had a heavy work load of sporting commitments through my netball this year: which consisted f coaching, playing, training, travelling and being away for week ends many times through out the year. I also had a social life and maintained close friendships and a strong relationship with my family. Last monday i received my enter: 84.9- i was stoked. I just wanted to let upcoming vce students know that it is possible to actually have a life outside vce- it actually really helps. Thank-you so much for all you great work. Keep it up, it really does help.If you want any help- let me know! Thanks.

  • Hi Heath First of all, I would like to give you and all the staff at VCE help a HUGE THANK YOU!! I received my ENTER today… 91.35 I am very pleased with it! At the start of the year I doubted that hard, intense effort would get me very far. But I listened to all the advice I received from various sources, including VCE help and your regular e-mails. I’m so glad that I did and put in all my effort, because I have reached beyond my initial target! (my initial target was 90.5). As a result of my experience with the VCE and the various obstacles that I had to conquer, I’m willing to write some tips or even articles on topics relating to the VCE! This is as I know just how crucial it is to have that little extra support and guidance from those who have conquered the VCE first hand. Please let me know how I would go about doing this. Thanks Kind regards and best wishes.

  • I just wanted to thank you for all the support and advice you have given over the past two years. it has really helped with my VCE. Although i didn’t get the score i needed which i have to admit was a huge blow. After reading “your VCE results” it helped me realise that it’s not the end of the world and that there are still other courses I can do, which will ultimately get me where i want to go.. so once again thanks.

  • Ok, ok, i take back any weird looks and crabby remarks i gave you at the expo. i am converted, and i believe what you are doing is great. sorry for doubting you, but these days i’m sceptical of everything. so many scams around; but from what i’ve gathered this isn’t, and you actually give a stuff about what we’re doing. thankyou for your newsletters, they’re really good.

  • Hi Heath! …you’ll probably not remember but i met u at the VCE age expo on sunday (I told u u had great marketing skills if that helps!) something that really set u apart from all the other stands was your charismatic enthusiasm and approach to VCE…i remember just walking away psyced up…and your contagious personality and faithful delivery of your newsletter is so inspirational it really serves as a pick me up in times such as these… I especially love the quotes in your newsletter… I really liked how u spoke about exercise in this newsletter instead of continuously bashing us over the head with MORE STUDY STUFF…lol. But all in all keep up your superlative and kwazy personalitiy! It really shows thru your newsletters and is so fresh, upbeat and inspirational to all of us doing the psycho thing called…VCE So I don’t’ know how helpful this actually was but… hope to hear from you soon. Thanks

  • hey guys, overall, i think you have done a great job. I like the quotes that you start off with because they really make sense when you think about them. I particularly like the way how u relate everything back to things that are happening around us, making it easier to comprehend eg. the olympic stuff. There really isn’t anything to dislike about the ezines.

  • To Heath, What u said hit me like a bell. u see im in year 11 and i really like reading ur advice newsletters( especially 4 the quotes). i sometimes have trouble dealing with “TIME MANAGEMENT” especially when writing essays. i find it hard to get a good essay going. ive always blamed it on my lack of inspiration…. i guess now to come to think of it, its a combination of poor time management and lack of knowledge with issues and current affairs… i have only come to realise this when i tried doing an entrance exam. thanks 4 listing these key points down… if it matters to you, im gonna print it and keep it on my desk so that i make sure i dont fall into those traps…Sorry ive realised ive written too much… thank u for reading and hope you didnt get bored. anywayz keep the life edition thing going… its a great help and quite fun to read.

  • Heath, Throughout the year, I have received the emails “ENTER-life”. I would like you to know how much they have helped me throughout the year, and that every edition was very much appreciated. Even though some stuff either didn’t quite involve me or I didn’t need help in that particular area, other tips and facts were really good to read. It is really good knowing that these emails are coming from somebody who knows what they are talking about and has not forgotten the stress and important life decisions year 12′s have to make. Hopefully, next year I will be doing a Bachelor of Arts course in Melbourne (a big move for me since I live 4 hours away!!) studying music and literature, and then go on to being a secondary teacher. So…thank you very much for your help throughout the year, and continue the good job!

  • Gidday Heath, Thank you for the info. to date on the 7 Deadly Mistakes. I have been a secondary teacher for 33 years and my wife Jan for 32. We have been teaching VCE for the last 10 years at the Mill Park SC (senior campus) in 4 different subjects… I had never seen the vcehelp website until yesterday. It is really a must use tool for every student at Year 11-12 and teachers of VCE. My wife has posted a letter about it in her staff room and will put a notice in the bulletin for all students to access the info. (she is the Year 12 co-ordinator). Just wanted to say thanks and hope to meet up with you at some time in the future to compare notes on our experiences in education… Anyway must fly. Glad to make contact with you and once again thanks for the info. I plan to spread the gospel of this website to all and sundry in my presentations this year and in the futur
