Pilbara News - - News - Ali­cia Per­era

A num­ber of Year 12 stu­dents across the City of Kar­ratha and Shires of Ash­bur­ton and Ex­mouth have dis­tin­guished them­selves in WACE stud­ies by earn­ing awards for high aca­demic achieve­ment.

Eleven lo­cal stu­dents col­lected cer­tifi­cates of dis­tinc­tion and merit for ex­cel­lent school achieve­ment. Cer­tifi­cates were awarded to those who ac­cu­mu­late 150-200 points in WACE units over three con­sec­u­tive years of study, from the WA School Cur­ricu­lum and Stan­dards Author­ity.

Seven re­cip­i­ents were from St Luke’s Col­lege, in­clud­ing dux Robert Pat­ter­son, Talia Crowhurst, Sofia Flores, Tianzi An­gela Gu, So­phie Sparks, and Carrie Watkins. Robert also re­ceived an ATAR score of more than 99, the third St Luke’s stu­dent to ever do so.

Kar­ratha Se­nior High School stu­dent Emilee Therese John, Tom Price Se­nior High School’s Kai Ferenc Rigby and Ash­ley Kate Baker, and Ex­mouth Dis­trict High School stu­dent Crys­tal Lee Ver­steeg also col­lected cer­tifi­cates.

St Luke’s principal Alanna Ot­way said she was glad to see so many stu­dents achiev­ing strong aca­demic re­sults.

“I think it’s an­other great val­i­da­tion that stu­dents in the Pil­bara can have ac­cess to a high level of ed­u­ca­tion,” she said.
