Congratulations to the Class of 2017

Wed, December 20, 2017

St Mark’s students - the Class of 2017 - have once again made us proud, with a median ATAR of 83.10, an improvement over previous years, and our highest since 2008. As a comparison, the state average is 78.6. In another improvement over previous years, St Mark’s rose 10 places in the WACE Achievement tally.

In addition, we have 12 students who achieved above 95 and five above 99. This means these students are among the top 5% in the state. Our top students are Jackson Porter, followed closely by Cameron Keyser. As a School that is non-selective academically, our students consistently perform very well, and we congratulate them on their efforts. 

In the VET program, 38 students completed a Certificate II or higher, giving them a great stepping stone into further studies, an apprenticeship or into the workplace.

It is pleasing to note that a number of St Mark’s learning areas were recognised as having the top achieving students in WA. This includes Biology, Business Management & Enterprise, Chemistry, Health Studies, Human Biology, Philosophy & Ethics and Physics. 

Subject Certificates of Excellence were received by Caleb Hendry for Human Biology, and Jackson Porter for Mathematics Methods.

In addition, a number of our students have been recognised for their achievements in the Arts, with Nikita Marchenkov’s works selected for the Perspectives Exhibition to be held in the Art Gallery of Western Australia. Bridget Smith was similarly invited to participate based on her outstanding performance in Drama. In Music, Hannah James achieved 97% in her practical exam, another outstanding result.
