Strathmore Secondary College Celebrates VCE Results
Strathmore Secondary College 2018 VCE graduates students have excelled in their efforts and final results. Once again, the school is proud of their dedication and achievement, and congratulates them, their teachers and families on a job well done.
We are delighted to report that two of our students achieved scores of over 99: the top ATAR was 99.40, followed by a 99.10.
16 students achieved scores of over 95 while a further 17% of scores were over 90 and 35% over 80.
Equally exciting was the achievement of an average of 31 in study scores, with 8.5% of these being 40 or above. To put this in perspective, across all school sectors (Government, Independent and Catholic) the average study score was 30, with 8 % in the band of 40 and above.
While study scores are one measure of success, there are others, less tangible, but equally desirable. Again this year, students and the school community in general have responded to the challenge; I thank all concerned for their support and willingness to contribute in many ways to the success of the school.
