Christmas has come early with more celebrations for our graduating Class of 2017.
In addition to those students who scored an ATAR of 95 and above announced earlier this week, we also had 35 students who scored an ATAR of 90 and above, which puts them inside the top 10 per cent of all academic performers in the State.
Fifty students were awarded School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) Certificates of Distinction/Merit. Two of our students earned two awards – Jasmine King (Duncraig) and Youstina Takla (Carramar) – taking the School’s tally to 52 awards for 2017.
St Stephen’s School Principal Mrs Donella Beare commended all students on their hard work and dedication to achieving excellence.
“Well done to all of our students – the commitment you gave your studies has been nothing short of impressive. It is wonderful to see you all rewarded and we congratulate you,” Mrs Beare said.
“It has been an honour for everyone at St Stephen’s School to have played a part in your journey and we look forward to what is in store for your future.”
Please find the lists of St Stephen's School students who scored 90 and above and SCSA Certificates of Distinction and/or Merit winner below. (Please note, order/position is not reflective of overall score).
