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 2018 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.
Over a third of the cohort 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, achieved an ATAR score of above 80, placing these girls in the top 20% of the State. The median ATAR was 87.
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.

Our 2018 Dux
Congratulations to our Dux of 2018, Isabel Gray, who achieved an ATAR score of 99.8.
Isabel Gray is planning to study a double degree in PPE (Politics, Philosophy and Economics) and Commerce at the Australian National University.
Commencing at St Catherine’s nearly 15 years ago in the three-year-old kindergarten program, Isabel has won several debating and public speaking awards during her time at St Catherine’s, including receiving a Top Five Speaker Award in the 2017 Senior British Parliamentary Competition. She represented the School at Bond University in the School Mooting Competition in 2018 and achieved strong results in the Debating Association of Victoria competition for 2018.
“My involvement in debating and public speaking has made me the confident individual that I am today. Learning how to express my opinions in a structured and polite way has been an invaluable skill,” explains Isabel.
