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 2019 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 notable academic results across a broad range of subjects.
Almost 20% of the girls achieved an ATAR above 95, placing these girls in the top 5% of the State with a further third of the cohort achieving an ATAR of 90 and above, placing these girls in the top 10% of the State. This success is testament to the fortitude, diligence and perseverance shown by each student.
As an open entry School, we are proud of the achievements of all students and with over half of the cohort achieving an ATAR of above 85, placing these girls in the top 15% of the State, we are excited to hear in the coming days of their tertiary placements both locally and abroad.
