The significant leadership and commitment to academic excellence of our Year 12 students has been a proud and uplifting narrative for St Catherine’s School.
Our Class of 2017 will be remembered for their enthusiasm and eagerness to achieve their best in all aspects of life at St Catherine’s. Through their sustained commitment and determination, our Year 12 cohort have achieved remarkable academic results across a broad range of subjects.
Almost half the cohort (44%) achieved an ATAR score of 90 and above, placing these girls in the top 10% of the State and over two-thirds of the cohort (67%), achieved an ATAR score of above 80, placing these girls in the top 20% of the State. Nineteen students achieved scores of 95 and above, with these extraordinary results placing the girls in the top 5% of the State.
These achievements are also a testament to the expertise and proficiency of our teaching staff. Thank you to all our VCE teachers who have shown great care and commitment to our VCE students.
We congratulate our 2017 Year 12 students for their exceptional efforts and wish them well in their future endeavours.
Our 2017 Dux
Zoe plans to study Mathematics next year and has set a long-term goal of undertaking a Masters Degree in the United Kingdom or Europe in five years.
“I really enjoy studying and learning new things,” explains Zoe. “My teachers at St Catherine’s provided me with so much of their time to ensure I was fully prepared for all my studies – this made learning so much easier. The teachers and staff at St Catherine’s really cared about me.”
