St Andrew’s Anglican College Year 12 students returned to school on Monday to celebrate one of the school’s best years of OP results with more than 30 per cent receiving an OP1 to 5.
Principal Reverend Chris Ivey said the College was incredibly proud of the students’ achievements, with special commendations warranted for six OP 1 recipients.
“Five students achieved an OP 2, four an OP 3, eight an OP 4 and four an OP 5 and 80.7% of students achieved an OP 1 – 10,” Reverend Ivey said.
St Andrew’s school captain and OP 1 recipient Sarah Jackson said the results brought both relief and excitement.
“It was amazing to receive these results over the weekend and know that everything has paid off after 13 years of schooling,” Sarah said.
Sarah will head to Scotland in January to participate in a student gap year program at Erskine Stewart’s Melville School in Edinburgh.
“I have also applied for a Bachelor of Veterinary Science which, if accepted into, I will defer until 2020.”
Reverend Ivey also recognised and congratulated students who chose alternate pathways.
