The Class of 2023 has achieved outstanding final results. In another eventful year, our students have shown dedication and resilience to generate wonderful outcomes that will now open those doors to their chosen fields of further study and work.
School Dux & Proxime Accessit
Congratulations to our School Dux, Tamsin Savery, who achieved an ATAR of 99.90, and to our Proxime Accessit, Emmanuel Sunartio who achieved an ATAR of 99.70.
In a snapshot:
- 32 students were awarded a total of 49 Merits, including 22 students earning 28 SACE Merits across 10 subject areas, and 15 students being awarded 21 Merit Equivalents across 17 University subjects.
- An impressive 7% of our Year 12 cohort placed in the top 1% nationally, with an ATAR above 99, with 31% of our students ranked in the top 5% nationally, with an ATAR above 95.
- 47% of our cohort join our Top Guns, a unique group reserved for students who achieve an ATAR above 90, placing them in the top 10% nationally.
- 61% of all grades achieved were A grades, compared to a State average of 32%, and a special mention to our International Students, who achieved impressive results once again.
These exceptional results occur because our talented students have talented teachers, who year after year, go above and beyond in their support, guidance, and care. Our teaching staff are delighted with the results and we salute their dedication, talent and ‘do-whatever-it-takes’ approach to help our students generate their best efforts.
These results are further evidence of the importance of focussing not just on learning and teaching but also on student wellbeing. Our ‘circle of care’ approach, where we wrap a network of support and ongoing counsel around every student, enables our young stars to give their personal bests in a demanding and challenging year.
We also extend our congratulations to all the parents who worked in partnership with the School in guiding and supporting our Year 12 students throughout the year. Generating such outstanding results requires a team effort, and the strong connection between home and school remains formidable at St John’s Grammar.
