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.
