St Stephen’s School is proud of the achievements of the Class of 2013 and would like to acknowledge the strong result from this group of students in the recent WACE examinations, as well as the contribution the students made to the school community during their time at St Stephen’s School, Duncraig.
The achievements of Sophie Brouwer (ATAR 99.2) Dennis Eliza May (ATAR 99.05), Max Brooker (98.6), Isabella Wilson (98.5) and Marissa Wee (98.3) and Jordana Sisarich (98.2) must be commended as these students achieved ranking that place them in the top 2% of students across the entire state. 13 of our Year 12 students achieved rankings of over 95.
Ben Martin and Jordana Sisarich are to be congratulated on achieving State Certificates of distinction in English for being in the top 0.5% of students in Western Australia.
Max Brooker, Sophie Brouwer, Emma Corey, Eliza Dennis, Ben Martin, Ansley Morrish, Jordana Sisaraich, Marissa Wee and Isabella Wilson are also congratulated on being awarded State Certificates of Commendation for achieving at least 20 A grades over Years 11 and 12.
In comparative tables released recently by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority, St Stephen’s Duncraig was ranked 42nd in the state, based on the percentage of students enrolled in Stage 3 courses, who achieved a Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) course score of 75 or above. In a similar table, based on a score of 65 or above, St Stephen’s, Duncraig was ranked 30th. We remain one of the top 50 schools in the entire state out of 181 schools where students sat external WACE exams.
We congratulate our students on their achievements, and acknowledge our teachers for their commitment and dedication in assisting the students to reach their potential. We are particularly pleased with the number of students who worked incredibly hard to achieve an ATAR that gets them into the course of choice at university – the unsung heroes are often those students who achieve that rank of 75 or 80 who would not have done sowithout the support and dedication of teachers and parents and who have created possibilities for themselves through their hard work and persistent effort. Our congratulations also go to the students who followed a VET pathway where 97% of our students achieved Certificates 2 or higher.
