Pilbara News - - Pilbara | News - Louise Alling­ham

St Luke’s Col­lege beat 28 other schools from across WA to fin­ish num­ber one in the State at the Ed­u­ca­tion Per­fect English Cham­pi­onships.

Stu­dents from Year 7-12 took part in the online com­pe­ti­tion by com­plet­ing as many gram­mar, com­pre­hen­sion and writ­ing tasks and tests as they could within one week.

The stu­dents an­swered more than 70,000 ques­tions and spent a com­bined 293 hours online to take out the top prize.

In 2016, the school placed sec­ond in the 251-500 stu­dents cat­e­gory and were keen to make it to the top this year.

They placed first in WA in the 251-500 stu­dents cat­e­gory against 29 schools, and fifth over­all in WA out of 122 schools.

A to­tal of 16 stu­dents re­ceived cer­tifi­cates for their achieve­ments and the top three per­form­ers were Emily Ford, 12, Ava Hayes, 12, and Bryanna Strat­ton, 14.
