From the Principal
Congratulations to the 2017 Swan Christian College Graduates, their teachers and parents on their academic results.
Swan Christian College is celebrating the outstanding academic success of its students in 2017. The College Executive Team and I would like to congratulate students on their academic achievements and excellent conduct.
As a leading coeducational school in Perth’s eastern suburbs, the College is delighted by the achievements of its ATAR students, and those who gained nationally recognised qualifications under the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).
Some of the individual successes included Matthew Chidlow who gained an ATAR of 99.45, Conrad Matthews who achieved 98.45 and Liam Minotti who gained a rank of 97.9.
In 2017 the median ATAR achieved by Swan students was 81.85, with 18 students being inducted into the Excelsior Club having achieved a minimum ATAR of 90. This was an improvement of 1.85 ranking points on the previous year and equated well with the state mean of 77.5. Six students received a WACE Certificate of Distinction that requires students to achieve A grades across their courses and/or certificates, a testament to their commitment to their studies. In addition, 14 students received a Certificate of Merit. 79% percent of students who applied for university entry received an offer for their first preference compared to the state average of 68%.
At 96.5% Swan Christian College’s WACE was again higher than the state average. The College’s graduates received a total of 188 AQF qualifications with many students achieving multiple qualifications.
The Class of 2017 made significant contributions to the life of the College through leadership, service, the arts and sport. For this I thank them; I would also like to recognise the Year 12 parents who partnered with the College through their child’s time here. I look forward to following their progress in the coming years and hope that they will maintain close ties with our College.
