St Luke’s in top 50 schools list

Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Perera

Year 12 exam re­sults are now in, and the re­port card shows there is no short­age of aca­demic high achiev­ers in the Pil­bara.

St Luke’s Col­lege in Kar­ratha was the only Pil­bara school to make the School Cur­ricu­lum and Stan­dards Au­thor­ity’s list of top 50 schools, re­leased last Thurs­day.

The list is based on the pro­por­tion of stu­dents who achieve an Aus­tralian Ter­tiary Ad­mis­sion Rank of 75 or higher in WA Cer­tifi­cate of Education stage-three cour­ses.

St Luke’s came in at num­ber 49, its high­est WACE rank so far.

The school also gained its first 99plus ATAR score stu­dent — not once but twice.

Col­lege dux An­shula Ashish and Jayank Sen­ger, both 17, achieved ATARs of 99.65, lead­ing a strong Year 12 co­hort in which 20 per cent of WACE stage-three stu­dents ranked 90 or higher.

An­shula also re­ceived a Cer­tifi­cate of Com­men­da­tion for 20 or more Agrades over her fi­nal two years.

St Luke’s and Tom Price Se­nior High School made the top 50 list for Cer­tifi­cate II Vo­ca­tional Education and Train­ing stud­ies.

Tom Price also ranked in the Cer­tifi­cate I list and reg­is­tered a 100 per cent course com­ple­tion rate for both VET cat­e­gories.

St Luke’s prin­ci­pal Alanna Ot­way said their Year 12 re­sults were a credit to stu­dents’ hard work.

Kar­ratha girl Tessa Laing, a boarder at St Mary’s Angli­can Girls’ School in Perth, also ex­celled. She won four awards, in­clud­ing a Course Ex­hi­bi­tion as top stu­dent in Me­dia Pro­duc­tion and Anal­y­sis and a Cer­tifi­cate of Dis­tinc­tion in Vis­ual Arts.
