The academic achievements of an exceptional cohort were marked at the Honours Assembly at Scotch Oakburn College’s Penquite Campus on Friday 3 February.
There was much to celebrate, with 50 per cent of 2016 Year 12 cohort placed in the top 10.65 per cent of students nationally.
The year level scored a median Australian Tertiary Admission Rank of an enviable 89.35.
In addition, six students were listed among the top 100 in Tasmania: Michelle Els, James Beattie, Angus Brient, Niamh Crocker, Ryan Delport and Lewis Ottaway.
Other highlights of the year group’s performance included:
Some 21.5 per cent of students achieved an ATAR of 95+; and
Some 48 per cent achieved an ATAR of 90+.
Some 68 students out of 100 Year 12s of 2016 were placed in the top 20 per cent of students in Australia.
The results are an indication of the leadership and dedication of the Year 12 students as a whole in 2016.
Principal Andy Müller congratulated students on their contributions to what had been an amazing year as they strived to reach their potential and achieve their goals.
“Equally as important as their academic results, our Year 12 students stepped beyond the College having gained a well-rounded education that has helped develop their character, prepare them well for their futures and equipped them with values and personal skills that will enable them to view their world through confident eyes,” Mr Müller said.
The Honours Assembly also saw the induction of the 2017 Student Executive.
