Wilderness School
There were 83 girls who applied for the ATAR this year. Of the cohort 70% were placed in the top 10%, with 57% in the top 5% and 18% in the top 1% of Year 12 students.

The position of Dux is shared by three outstanding students who each achieved an ATAR of 99.90: Catrin Bannister, Tatyana Hubczenko and Lauren Vu.

We are delighted that Arabella Hart has been awarded the Governor of South Australia SACE Award that recognises the best overall performance by an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander student in 2015. Tatyana Hubczenko has also been awarded a Governor of South Australia Commendation which recognises students’ exceptional achievements whilst undertaking the SACE, an outstanding accomplishment. The Governor of South Australia will present their awards on the stage as part of the formal SACE Merit Ceremony on 9 February 2016.

Madelyn Agaciak, Catrin Bannister, Hema Berggren, April De Silva, Arabella Hart, Tatyana Hubczenko, Helena Karapetis, Joanne Liang, Peta Musgrove, Alice Osborne, Lucinda Silvestri, Zoe Stuckings, Clare Turnbull, Lauren Vu, and Brooke Washusen all gained an ATAR above 99.

Today we welcome forty-nine new members to the Scotch 90s Club. Perfect study scores (Merits) were attained by twenty-one students and there was a total of thirty-two. Our best ever results on this measure.

The achievement of our Year 11 students was a highlight with seventy-eight percent completing a SACE Stage 2 subject other than the Research Project. Of those there were 6 awarded merits.


St Peter's Girls' School
18% of students receiving an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) over 99, and an incredible 38% of students over 95.

These overall figures are already superior to previous years. In 2014, 16% of students were over 99 and 17% over 99 in 2013. We are now eagerly awaiting the results for those girls completing the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, which will be released on 4 January 2016.

Special mention must go to three students on their exceptional individual results. Thenu Herath received the top ATAR result of our SACE cohort with 99.9, while Helen Bui and Theodora Galanis both received 99.85.

Thenu and Theodora received a total of 5 Merit Awards each, while Helen received 2 Merit Awards. As a result of these remarkable achievements, both Thenu and Theodora will receive the additional honour of a Governor of South Australia Commendation.

This year, our SACE cohort was smaller than in previous years but we are incredibly proud of the depth of our results. Despite the expectation that Year 12 students study five subjects this year, up from four in previous years, the girls have succeeded in maintaining fantastic results.

Collectively, the Year 12s received 34 Merit Awards across a diverse range of 11 subjects, including English Studies, English Communications, Drama, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Psychology, Music Solo Performance, Modern History and Nutrition.

Congratulations must also go to another three Year 11 students, who were awarded 4 Merit Awards for completing Stage 2 subjects this year.
