The Advocate (Perth) - - NEWS - Lisa Thomas

STU­DENTS from Swan Val­ley An­gli­can Com­mu­nity School have ranked among the high­est in the state af­ter achiev­ing im­pres­sive Aus­tralian Ter­tiary Ad­mis­sion Rank­ing scores.

The school also per­formed well, re­ceiv­ing the high­est me­dian ATAR in its his­tory, 86.55.

Stu­dent Riya Pa­tel, who is also the school dux, achieved a score of 99.35 and Amor Bas­son achieved an ATAR of 99.10.

Stu­dents Sarah Tucker, Pene­lope Gan­n­away, Ben­jamin Rolen­der, Ja­cob Har­wig, Har­ley Gar­diner, Emily Iz­zard, Kiera Macdon­ald, Grace Flynn and Cather­ine Tay­lor all achieved a score over 90.00.

Prin­ci­pal Ja­son Bartell said the school was very proud of the ef­forts by the stu­dents.

“Swan Val­ley An­gli­can Com­mu­nity School stu­dents have per­formed ex­cep­tion­ally well,” he said.

“Of the 27 stu­dents who took four or more cour­ses lead­ing to univer­sity en­trance, the school achieved a me­dian ATAR score of 86.55. This is the high­est me­dian ATAR achieved in its his­tory. This is an out­stand­ing re­sult of which our whole school com­mu­nity should be very proud.”

Mr Bartell said 92.3 per cent of stu­dents at the school met the re­quire­ments for grad­u­a­tion and will re­ceive the WA Cer­tifi­cate of Ed­u­ca­tion.

“I would also like to con­grat­u­late all other stu­dents and there were some in­di­vid­ual per­for­mances this year, with many stu­dents achiev­ing a score which they can be very proud of. Some stu­dents over­came in­cred­i­ble per­sonal chal­lenge to achieve their ab­so­lute best,” he said.

“These re­sults demon­strate the ef­fort and skill of our teach­ers who mo­ti­vate, men­tor and guide through the year.”
