Celebrating Outstanding Academic Results

Outstanding Results in the Research Project 2017 and Semester 1 Academic Achievement

The 2017 Research Project results were released last week by the SACE Board and we were delighted with the outstanding results of our Year 12 Class of 2017.

100% pass rate with 86.2% of students achieving a B Grade or better and 44% achieving an A Grade or better.

8.9% of our students achieved an A+ or the highest grade possible well up from the state average result of 3.8%

At our Academic Assembly on Friday 11 Aug 17, we recognised students who achieved at the very highest level in their term 2 report, please see the attached news item for details.


I congratulate our talented students and their teachers for their outstanding work in semester 1.
