100% SACE......Again!

Posted by Thomas More College on 18 December 2018
100% SACE......Again!

Dear friends of the Thomas More College Community,
As a community we celebrate the outstanding success achieved by the students at Thomas More College in their
SACE Stage 2 results for 2018. These are the result of 13 years of education and therefore should be something
that we all celebrate.
A snapshot of our 2018 Stage 2 results are as follows:
We would like to celebrate the significant achievement of 100% SACE Completion. This follows the success of
100% SACE completion in 2017. This means that every student that completed Year 12 also achieved their Year 12
SACE Certificate. By way of comparison the State Average was 97.4%. We also note a positive improvement in
grade distribution with a 1.4% increase in A- and above.
We are pleased to announce that Stalin Saji Eattimoottil is Dux for 2018. He obtained an ATAR of 98.90. This is an
outstanding achievement.
Unique achievements include:
Matthew Rumley, our runner-up DUX with an ATAR of 98.40 as a 16 year-old Year 11 student. Matthew has
been part of an individualized program that has supported his early graduation and outstanding
achievements.
We also celebrate the success of Sam Byrne and Joshua Richardson who achieved their SACE supported
by our Vanier Program.

The median ATAR was 70.35
ATAR 90-99 15 students (10.1%)
ATAR 80-89 24 students (16.2%)
30 students who were not eligible for an ATAR gained their SACE certificate.

2 Students Completed their SACE through accessing our Vanier Program
In Brief,
In 2018 our College's overall SACE results have improved again and with a number of key celebrations:
Consistent achievement with 100% of our students receiving their SACE
46.6% of students achieved an A- or better for at least one of their subjects
We can see a significant shift in the attainment of our students with a larger percentage of students achieving a B grade or better.
Engagement in VET studies is growing in its contribution to our students' successful completion of SACE
Congratulations to the graduating class of 2018 as well as all of those who supported them, we the staff and wider community wish you every success in the future as you Learn More, Be More and Live More.


Sincerely,
Andrew Balkwill

2018 Year 12 Commissioning

Last Thursday we officially set forth our 2018, year 12 cohort into the world but not before they celebrated a couple of more 'lasts'! Their last Assembly as Thomas More students was held, where our leaders, Ben Tran and Janny Liao inspired not only their peers but all of the Staff as well with their speeches. They had their last shared lunch with staff and on Friday morning, a breakfast celebration together. We celebrated their commissioning Mass at St Augustine's Church with family and friends on Thursday evening, where we were treated to the beautiful sounds of Va Utopia Liturgical Band, which consists of current and past students.

We wish this amazing group of students all the very best in their future endeavours!

2018, Intercultural Power Cup

2018, Intercultural Power Cup

"The Power Intercultural Program is designed to celebrate the vibrancy of cultural diversity and expression in Australia. It promotes inclusion and builds social cohesion by recognising the positive contribution of different cultures."

For the second year in a row, Thomas More College girls made their way into the Grand Final of the Intercultural Power Cup. They played the game in the spirit it was intended, with a sense of inclusion and fun! Some of the boys came along to support them and also take part in the Port Adelaide Power v Melbourne, pre game entertainment. Congratulations to all of the students that took part in the carnival and to their teacher/coach, Dwayne Treasure and assistant coach, Kerri Frost.
