As a community we celebrate the outstanding success achieved by the students at Thomas More College in their SACE Stage 2 results for 2017.

This is the result of 13 years of education and therefore should be something that we all celebrate.

A snapshot of our 2017 Stage 2 results are as follows:

This year our community has achieved a 100% SACE Completion. This means that every student that completed Year 12 also achieved their Year 12 SACE Certificate. An outstanding 4.93% improvement from 2016.
By way of comparison the State Average was 97.33%.

We are pleased to announce that Thi Thu Nguyet NGUYEN is Dux for 2017. She obtained an ATAR of 99.45. This is an outstanding achievement.
