The results are again very impressive across the full range of scores: twenty-three students (14%) achieved an ATAR of 99 or better, placing them in the top one per cent of the state. Thirty-one per cent of our students achieved a rank of 95 or better, while 50% of our students achieved a score of 90 or better, placing them in the top ten per cent of the State. Ninety-five per cent of our students were in the top 50% of the State. Our median ATAR score was 90.1. These are again extraordinary results and I congratulate our students and their teachers for the hard work they did to achieve them.

There were thirteen perfect study scores across a wide range of subjects: James Bickerdike (Physics), Jake Brown (Biology), Alan Chen (English), Joe Chen (English), Lachlan Doig (Mathematical Methods), James Gunasegaram (Mathematical Methods), Richard Han (English), Charles Li (Specialist Mathematics and Physics), Lucas Liu (Mathematical Methods), Oliver Papillo (Year 11) (Global Politics), James Saligari (English), Sepehr Tahmasebi (English). Twenty-three per cent of all study scores were 40 or above, which given that we tend to do the more ‘difficult’ VCE subjects is an excellent result.

 This year the Duces of our School are Jake Brown and Sepehr Tahmasebi, both of whom scored 99.95. Our Proxime Accesserunt are Charles Li, Charles Huang, Anthony Stewart and Alan Chen, who each who scored 99.90. All six boys were clearly actively involved in the full life of the school and worked very hard at their studies.

A further seventeen students earned scores of 99 or better. These boys also studied a wide range of subjects and actively involved themselves in the life of the school: Travis Barton, James Bickerdike, Ryan Campbell, Joe Chen, Jacky Chen, Christian Chene, Benjamin Chesler, Nick Goss, Richard Han, Matthew Kautsky, Ming Kim Low, Adam Moore, James Saligari, Michael Tan, WeiHoong Tan, Sam Xiao, Andrew Zhang.

I would like once more to publicly acknowledge our remarkable teaching staff who helped our students to achieve these wonderful results. I know that they too are very proud of their students. I also congratulate and thank our parents, who have encouraged their sons by supporting them through the ups and downs of a VCE year.

Congratulations once more to the Class of 2018 on their excellent results. It is pleasing to see that their hard work has been rewarded so generously.

Dr Paul Hicks, Headmaster
