Results and achievements
2017 VCE RESULTS
St Paul’s 2017 VCE results represent the diligent efforts and admirable achievements of our students.
In all 8 students achieved an ATAR over 95 (7%) and 31 students achieved an ATAR over 90 (26%). 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, health and personal hardships to achieve impressive results.
The percentage of students who achieved an ATAR of over 80 was an impressive 46%, placing them in the top 20% of the state.
This year’s cohort plan to study a diverse range of courses from education and medicine to architecture 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. This year, a further three St Paul’s students have been nominated for Top Arts.
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 2017 NAPLAN results were also very positive and the growth rate between levels is very strong, with most cohorts beginning and ending the two year period of testing well above state means. The School’s mean score exceeds that of the state in virtually all areas of testing and most year levels.
At each of the Junior Schools the Year 3 results were extremely pleasing, with our early year’s students making an excellent start to their education in both literacy and numeracy.
Numeracy growth is also particularly strong across the School and literacy continues to be an area of student strength.
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.
