Year 12 Results 2019
Our Year 12 Class of 2019 has reinforced our tradition of success across the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme.
In the SACE, Saints Girls achieved a median ATAR of 92.55, with an incredible 40% receiving 95+.
Special mention goes to our overall Dux of the School, Hannah Brown, who recorded an ATAR of 99.6 and four merits. She is also among a select group of students to receive the prestigious Governor of South Australia Commendation.
Saints Girls' percentage of SACE Stage 2 grades in the ‘A’ band was 66.02%, compared with 62.93% in 2018 and 59.08% in 2017. This underlines our consistent academic advancement and far exceeds the State figure of 27.58%.
We performed strongly across all subject areas, in particular:
- The Arts Disciplines with 86.36% of students receiving 'A' grades (compared with the State figure of 36.15%)
- Business, Enterprise and Technologies with 84.22% of students receiving 'A' grades (State figure - 27.30%)
- Humanities with 76.92% of students receiving 'A' grades (State figure - 29.21%)
In the IB, all of our girls who undertook this intensive two-year course were awarded a Diploma. In fact, the 2019 cohort was our biggest since the introduction of the Diploma Programme at St Peter’s Girls. Students excelled across a host of disciplines including Mathematics, English and Chinese.
Many of our IB Diploma recipients are opening doors globally, with recent graduate Emily Murdock accepted to study at Harvard University in the USA after achieving a perfect score of 45 out of 45 (99.95 ATAR equivalent).
We congratulate our girls on their diligence and dedication in achieving these remarkable results, supported by our talented teachers and proud parents.
With a history of success spanning more than 125 years, the future at Saints Girls has never been brighter.
