This year we have achieved the best VCE results in the school’s history -16% of ATARs over 90, 9.8% of study scores in the 40s and a median study score of 30. This is a truly outstanding set of results and a credit to all staff and students who have all worked so hard to achieve so much, not only this year but over the course of the six year journey for these students.
Congratulations to all of our Year 12 students who received their results last Friday. They can be very proud of their achievements. Special mention in this newsletter must go to our very high achievers. First of all our Dux for 2018, Sabrina Berg, who achieved an ATAR of 99.3, an absolutely sensational result. Sabrina is in the top 1% of the state and she plans to study for a Bachelor of Science Advanced – Global Challenges (Honours) at Monash University. I would also like to congratulate Angus Macpherson for achieving an ATAR of 99.03. He is also in the top 1% of the state and plans to study physiotherapy at Latrobe University. Annie Ea achieved an ATAR of 98.95 and two perfect study scores of 50 for English and Health & Human Development. This is another wonderful achievement and Annie plans to study Pharmacy or Physiotherapy at Monash University. Tessa Love achieved an ATAR of 98.2 (in the top 2% of the state) and plans to study Arts at Melbourne University. Mikayla Begent achieved an ATAR of 97.25 (in the top 3% in the state) and plans to study Chemical Engineering and Pharmaceutical Science at Monash University. Bailey Bocksette achieved an ATAR of 96.45 (in the top 4% of the state) and plans to study Physiotherapy at Monash. Naena Good-Jackson achieved an ATAR of 96.45 (in the top 4% of the state) and plans to study Arts at Melbourne University. Alex Vujicic achieved an ATAR of 90.2 (in the top 10% of the state) and plans to study International Business/Arts at Monash.
We held a results celebration morning tea on Monday for all our Year 12 teachers and students.
While we celebrate individual student success stories, it is important to remind everyone that your final ATAR score does not define you as a person. In the end it is a rank for tertiary admission. It won’t necessarily determine where you will go in the future or how happy you will be. All students should feel proud of their efforts and be satisfied that they have given their personal best.
