2017 WACE Results

Congratulations to the class of 2017 for their excellent WACE results. The School is extremely proud of their dedication and diligence. It has been very pleasing to hear of the high number of students who have been offered their preferred university and vocational training courses for this year. This summary focuses on the achievements of our ATAR students.


Of the 124 students in the cohort, 90 (73%) studied a course that led to an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR).

Of these ATAR students, the following collective results were achieved:

  • 13% gained an ATAR of 90 or higher
  • 27% gained an ATAR of 85 or higher
  • 42% gained an ATAR of 80 or higher
  • 54% gained an ATAR of 75 or higher

Over half of our ATAR students achieved grades that placed them in the top 25% of the national student cohort.

The “95 Club”

Each year the School recognises those students who have achieved an ATAR of 95 or higher. The School congratulates the following seven students that achieved this distinction:

  • Georgia Bowler
  • Tess Croker
  • Eileen Melendez
  • Rachel Manning (2017 Dux)
  • Brandon Reeve
  • Banafsheh Sheriff (2017 Proxime Accessit)
  • Astha Sinha

Course Leaders

Schools with the highest performing students in ATAR courses have been named as Course Leaders, last year called Pockets of Excellence. Peter Moyes Anglican Community School was recognised for the following three courses:

  • Indonesian (for a second year and the only School recognised)
  • Economics (1 of 16 schools)
  • History (1 of 15 schools)

Course Leaders data is compiled from the percentage of students from each school who had Year 12 ATAR course combined scores in the top 15 per cent of all students in that course. It recognises the strength of achievement of schools in Year 12 ATAR courses but does not discriminate between schools with high or low enrolment in Year 12 ATAR courses. To be recognized, schools must have at least 10 students with a Year 12 ATAR course combined score in the course.

Awards for Outstanding Achievement in a Course

Subject Exhibition and Certificate of Excellence

A Subject Exhibition is awarded to the top eligible student obtaining the highest examination mark in an ATAR course. Certificates of Excellence are awarded to eligible students who are in the top 0.5 per cent of candidates based on the examination mark or the top two candidates (whichever is greater) in an ATAR course.

Harriett Watt was awarded the Subject Exhibition Award and Certificate of Excellence Award for the course Children, Family and the Community.
