Class of 2016

Our 2016 Leavers were rewarded for their hard work, determination and persistence with outstanding results in their final exams that will stand them in good stead for any pathway they pursue after Perth College. Their success is a reflection of our mission to prepare girls to think creatively, embrace personal excellence and live generously.
We were one of just 16 schools from across the state to have 100 per cent of its Year 12 students achieve the WA Certificate of Education. Of the 140 girls in Year 12, 127 were eligible for an ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admission Rank) and the School’s median ATAR was 90.55, placing us seventh in the state.
Five girls gained Subject Certificates of Excellence, while 26 achieved a Certificate of Distinction and 33 students earned Certificates of Merit.
Several students have accepted offers to study at interstate universities while one, Emily Gelineau, received a scholarship to study film scoring at Berklee College in Boston in the United States.
Thirteen girls gained VET (Vocational and Educational Training) qualifications, including one of our students, Teleiah Ogilvie, who joined the WA Police Service in November to undertake a training programme for Aboriginal cadets. Another student completed Perth College’s first school-based traineeship in health support services and received an offer to study enrolled nursing in 2017.
