Congratulations Class of 2020! Year 12 is a challenging year and achieving an academic personal best at any time, let alone with the challenges faced last year, deserves an acknowledgement to the resilience, determination and focus of the cohort given the results that were achieved. SACE completion is one metric of how schools evaluate their success and we acknowledge that these statistics do not represent the students who successfully transitioned to apprenticeships, paid work or further studies throughout the year. For these students we acknowledge this as success as well.
Each year we have seen growth in Stage 2 achievement. Last year we achieved 99% SACE completion and had 6% of our cohort achieve ATARs over 90%. Following adjustment factors, 16% of our Year 12s achieved a selection rank over 90%. In all other academic areas, we are trending upward.
Thank you to the students, parents and carers, teachers and leadership teams that contributed to these outcomes and congratulations once again to the graduating class of 2020.
Australian Dance Theatre Youth Ensemble 2021 Year 10 Performing Arts Academy Dance student, Mia H, recently succeeded in auditioning to become a member of the Australian Dance Theatre Youth Ensemble.
The Youth Ensemble offers a year-long program and was established in 2013 to expose elite dancers to the company's repertoire and training methodology, to foster the next generation of professional dancers. We are so proud of Mia and look forward to hearing more about her experiences throughout the year.
