I write to congratulate our outstanding graduating class of 2019.
At our recent Graduation Dinner I said the following to the students:
“You are an extraordinary group of individuals who have a vast array of individual talents and passions – you are champions in your own right. But you come together as a group who have made a very significant impact on our school community and on one another. I have been inspired by how you have embraced school life and the genuine and mutual relationships that you have forged amongst yourselves, and amongst the staff that hold you so close to their hearts.
You have been actively involved in advocating for issues beyond your immediate selves and have looked for ways to improve your local environment and the wider world. You are also interesting and interested people who have strong values.”
We are tremendously proud of the cohort’s outstanding VCE results.
The students’ dedication and commitment, supported and guided by the expertise of their teachers has enabled them to achieve results that will open doors to the tertiary courses they seek and continue to place The King David School in the top echelons of the State.
This year, the students ATAR results are as follows:
• 5% achieved 99 or above placing them in the top 1% of the State
• 24% achieved 95 or above, placing them in the top 5% of the State
• 43% achieved 90 or above placing them in the top 10% of the State
The Median Study Score was 36.
This year’s Dux is Freya Boltman who achieved an ATAR of 99.20.
Ella Freeman achieved an ATAR of 99.15.
Freya and Ella were our Roshei Hanhagah (School Captains) who worked so hard for the betterment of their school and wider community throughout the year and acted as wonderful role models for our student body.
Our Year 11s undertaking Unit 3 & 4 Studies also performed exceptionally well. They achieved a Median Study Score of 38.
Congratulations to Year 11 Student Sabina Polkinghorne-Katz who achieved a perfect Study Score of 50 in Business Management.
Kol Ha’kavod to the Class of 2019.
