Results and achievements
2016 VCE RESULTS
St Paul’s 2016 VCE results represent the diligent efforts and admirable achievements of our students.
In all 13 students achieved an ATAR over 95 (12%) and 24 students achieved an ATAR over 90 (22%).
Amongst those achieving above 90 are a number of inspiring success stories from students whose hard work and perseverance has enabled them to exceed their own expectations. There are several examples of students who, with support, have triumphed over family and personal hardships to achieve impressive results.
The percentage of students who achieved an ATAR of over 80 was an impressive 48%, placing them in the top 20% of the state.
This year’s cohort plan to study a diverse range of course from Medicine, Science, Commerce and Criminal Justice to Music, Nutrition and Fine Arts.
St Paul’s also has students regularly achieving outstanding results and hence selection into the VCE Season of Excellence which is run by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA). Only the most outstanding VCE students from the previous year, are invited to exhibit or perform.
ADDITIONAL STUDENT ACHIEVEMENTS
In addition to success in their core subjects, our students are consistently provided with opportunities to demonstrate their skills and achievements in a wide variety of other areas.
Some of the many areas in which our students have excelled in the last twelve months are:
- Human Powered Vehicle and Robocup
- DAV Debating State finals
- Australian Mathematics Olympiad selection
The School’s 2016 NAPLAN results were also very positive and the growth rate between levels is generally very strong. The School’s mean score exceeds that of the state in virtually all areas of testing and most year levels.
In 2014 St Paul’s was recognised as one of the nation’s top 10 country schools, based on our students’ NAPLAN performance. In 2016 we placed in the top 20, well ahead of other Gippsland schools. We know that each year group is different and some are stronger than others. Hence, we believe it is important to be catering appropriately for each and every student at their level of development; providing the right level of challenge and opportunity to achieve and progress.
