Education Minister Liz Constable today congratulated principals from the highest performing Public Schools in Western Australia at a special event at Parliament House.
Dr. Constable said the achievements of public school students last year were exceptional.
“It was the best year ever for public schools, with 635 Curriculum Council Exhibitions and Awards won, and it was the second year running that students from public schools won the State’s top awards, the WACE and VET Beazley Medals.” Dr. Constable said.
The Minister congratulated the principals of Rossmoyne, Willetton and Churchlands Senior High Schools whose students received the highest number of awards, with Rossmoyne receiving 66 awards, Willetton 56 and Churchlands 49.
“We also had three students who achieved a perfect ATAR score of 99.95, and they entered the prestigious 99 club, alongside 97 other students from around the State.” Dr. Constable said.
“This is a significant increase from last year.”
Country Schools also did well last year, with Seven Regional schools Achieving 100 % Graduation.
“These excellent results demonstrate the high quality of public school education in this State.” Dr. Constable said.
“They could not have been achieved without the dedicated guidance and support of inspirational teachers, school leaders and support staff.” Dr. Constable said.
