Preparing our students for the next step in their lives is our fundamental obligation at St Michael’s.
“Our students have a long history of continuing to tertiary study and into various post school pathways,” said Head of the School, Mrs Terrie Jones. “Today, many of the Class of 2018 have achieved an ATAR that will enable them to take the next step into a tertiary course in their chosen area of study.”
2018 is a great year of VCE performances at St Michael’s, reflected by the fact that 6% of the cohort achieved ATARs of 98 or better, 30% of the cohort had an ATAR of 90 or better and 56% of the cohort had an ATAR of 80 or better.
“I would like to congratulate our Dux of the School for 2018, Stan Russo, who applied himself to the challenging academic subject mix of Chemistry, Specialist Mathematics, Physics, Mathematical Methods and English, to achieve an outstanding score of 99.15,” Said Mrs Jones.
“I would also like to highlight and congratulate Bronte Smeaton and Natasha Vranes on their scores of 99.1 and 99. Bronte achieved a perfect score of 50 in Studio Arts and Natasha achieved two perfect scores in Health and Human Development and Psychology.”
“I am delighted to say that Oliva Walker in Food Studies and Jemma Hunter in Health and Human Development also achieved perfect study scores this year in their respective subjects.”
Reflecting on her first year as Head of St Michael’s Grammar School, Mrs Jones said, “I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the Class of 2018, and witnessing their commitment in all areas of endeavour in their final year, both in and beyond the classroom.”
For some of our students, today’s result is the culmination of 15 years at St Michael’s, having commenced their journey at the School in 3 Year Old Kindergarten in 2004.
“The Class of 2018 has been encouraged and supported by our committed teaching staff to follow their passions and excel in their areas of choice,” said Mrs Jones “This can be seen in the strong scores achieved across a broad range of studies, including study scores of 40 and above for 36% of our Philosophy students, 35% of our Physical Education students, 33% of our Art students, 33% of our Product Design and Technology students, and 27% of our Food Studies students.”
We are extremely proud of the Class of 2018’s results and congratulate all Year 12 students on their personal achievements. It is encouraging to know that they leave St Michael’s equipped with the confidence and clarity of purpose to make the most of the world’s opportunities.
