NINE La Salle Col­lege stu­dents from last year’s grad­u­at­ing class were an­nounced as 2014 WACE high achiev­ers.

To cel­e­brate their achieve­ments, the for­mer stu­dents were in­vited to at­tend the first col­lege as­sem­bly for 2015, along with Caitlin Staines, El­iza Tuck­well and 2014 head boy Stephen Beerkens, who re­ceived Cer­tifi­cates of Com­men­da­tion.

Lach­lan McBeath re­ceived an ad­justed ATAR score of 99.95 and was awarded the John de Laeter Top Ex­cel­lence Schol­ar­ship at Curtin Uni­ver­sity, val­ued at $24,000.

Alison Edmands also achieved an ad­justed ATAR of 99.5 and was ranked the num­ber one stu­dent who ap­plied for the phys­io­ther­apy course at Curtin Uni­ver­sity, re­ceiv­ing a $24,000 cash schol­ar­ship.

For­mer stu­dents who achieve at a high level in their fi­nal year at La Salle Col­lege are in­vited to be­come tu­tors, pass­ing on their knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ences to cur­rent stu­dents.

Dur­ing Term 1, stu­dents are also able to at­tend free skills seminars in var­i­ous Year 12 cour­ses such as English, reli­gion, math­e­mat­ics, hu­man bi­ol­ogy and study skills.

Th­ese pro­grams are part of the large amount of aca­demic sup­port that La Salle Col­lege stu­dents re­ceive.
