Dear members of the St Peter’s Girls’ School community,
I am thrilled to share with you some initial South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) results from our Year 12 Class of 2016.
- 18.6% of full SACE students received an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) over 99 (18% in 2015)
- 48.8% of full SACE students received an ATAR over 95 (42.8% in 2015)
My congratulations to all our students on their accomplishments, having strived to reach new personal bests.
Special mention must go to the following students on their exceptional individual results: Kritika Mishra and Mila Loechel, who received the top ATAR result of our SACE cohort with 99.85, and Samantha Abeygunasekara and Olivia Teh, who both received 99.75.
Kritika received a total of 5 Merit Awards, and, as a result of her remarkable achievements, she will receive the additional honour of a Governor of South Australia Commendation.
Collectively, the Year 12s received 42 Merit Awards across a diverse range of 12 subjects, including English Studies (14), Biology (6), Drama (3), Research Project (3), Chemistry (2), Modern History (2), Physics (1) and Creative Arts (1). This year we made a mark in Mathematics with Merits in Maths Methods (5), Maths Apps (3) and Maths Studies (1).
We are also proud to have four Year 11 students, who were each awarded a Merit in Stage 2 subjects completed this year.
Our girls have outperformed the state in virtually all areas, with the number of ‘A’ grades far exceeding the State’s figures. The table below lists a variety of subjects, highlighting the diversity of the girls’ talents:
SACE ‘A’ results:
|Subject||St Peter’s Girls’ School (%)||South Australia (%)|
Outstanding results such as these are a true reflection of the hard work and dedication of our girls, not to mention the invaluable support and leadership provided by our parents and teachers.
We are now eagerly awaiting the results for those girls completing the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme or IB subjects as part of their SACE. These will be released on 4 January 2017 and I look forward to sharing them with you, along with a complete report and analysis of the results from our entire Year 12 Class of 2016 in the new year.
