VCE Class 2016
Well done graduating VCE class, 2016!
All associated with Strathmore Secondary College – staff, students and families – wish to congratulate the members of the VCE graduating class on their achievement and effort throughout 2016. We appreciate that year 12 puts enormous pressure on all involved, and are proud of the maturity and determination of our students, which are evidenced in their excellent results.
While scores cannot encapsulate the human elements, they are the one measure we have to summarise our VCE 2016achievements; by anyone’s standards, we have done extremely well.
In terms of the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) results many scores were outstanding, including our highest, 98.4.
Further very pleasing outcomes include 15% of our students gained an ATAR above 90 which places them in the top 10% of all students in Victoria. 35% of our candidates achieved an ATAR of 80 or above, which placed them in the top 20% of all students.
Furthermore, the class achieved an average study score of 31, with close to 10% of these being 40 or above. In the broader context, across all sectors (Government, Independent and Catholic) the average study score is 30 with 8% of these being 40 or above. 1 perfect score of 50 was achieved.
As Principal, I especially wish to highlight the crucial place of excellent teaching in our success. The dedication, hard work and commitment of staff involved is worthy of the highest praise. We thank them and wish them a well-deserved break. Last but not least, I would like to recognise the role of families in supporting the students through this taxing year.
Congratulations to all involved.
