Peninsula Grammar staff and students have celebrated after the Class of 2017 achieved the best VCE results on the Mornington Peninsula.
As the students began to receive the impressive results early on that mid-December morning, Principal Mr Stuart Johnston personally congratulated co-Duces Charlotte Holland (Senior Prefect) and Daniel Pham for achieving an ATAR of 99.90. “I am incredibly proud of our students who have worked diligently and enthusiastically not just over the last year but over many years,” he said. “These results clearly show that.”
Other students congratulated by the Peninsula Grammar School community on their significant achievements are:
· Nathaniel Grieef-Dickerson (Head of School) - 99.65
· Tegan Miller-Randle - 99.50
· Grace O'Sullivan (Head of School) - 99.40
Director of VCE Mr Blair Cooper is particularly pleased with the results. “We applaud our students for their dedication to achieving their personal best,” he said. “With 27 per cent of our students achieving an ATAR of 90 or above and almost 50 per cent of our students achieving an ATAR of 80 or above, the Class of 2017 is an exceptional cohort.”
The results also showed the positive influence of a co-educational environment with Peninsula Grammar girls achieving a median ATAR of 85.35.
The following students achieved perfect Study Scores of 50:
· Grace O'Sullivan - Drama and Legal Studies
· Kathy Pham - Further Mathematics and Informatics
· Gemma Cockle - Health and Human Development
· Charlotte Holland – Literature
· Daniel Pham - English (EAL)
