Special congratulations to our Dux of 2012, Timothy Harkin, with an ATAR of 99.90. Timothy attained an English Study Score of 50 and his top Chemistry Study Score of 48. Timothy’s social justice involvement was constant throughout his school years, culminating in his recent ‘companioning’ on Star Camp. As musician, choir member and cross country runner, he was always involved in SKC life.
Congratulations to our two Proxime Accesserunt, Dylan Neenan and Alexander Nguyen who achieved an ATAR of 99.75.
Our College student leadership group has performed remarkably. College Captain James Geremia with a 99.2, combined his leadership role with sports – tennis and basketball; music – choral and instrumental and debating. What an outstanding effort! Nathan Mitchener and James Dimattina were also highly successful academically, alongside their substantial co-curricular involvements. We are so fortunate to have such excellent student role models.
This year, there were 14 perfect scores in a range of subjects: Accounting, Business Management, English, History Revolutions, Physical Education and Physics.
A magnificent performance in English – the College’s second-best set of results in this subject – saw 41% of boys score greater than 40. Business Management, History Revolutions, IT Applications, Literature, French, Studio Arts, Specialist Mathematics, Music Performance and Physics were also impressive results. Further details are listed separately and more detailed analysis will be done in the new academic year.
These results have created the pathway forward for a fine group of young men in whom families and school have great pride.
