St Hilda’s School students have maintained the school’s long-standing tradition of academic success, confirmed by the release of 2022 ATAR results.

To all members of the St Hilda’s community,

It is with great pride that I acknowledge and congratulate St Hilda’s 2022 graduates on their highly commendable results in their QCE external examinations.

In another year of challenge, our Class of 2022 remained agile, demonstrated remarkable strength of character, and encouraged one another to achieve their personal goals.

Parents of our senior graduates will be aware that students can decide whether to allow their school access to the ATAR. We are appreciative of the significant number of students who have enabled us to view their achievements. With the data available to us, I am delighted to share that 45% of St Hilda’s School students achieved an ATAR of 90.0 and above with six students achieving an ATAR above 99.0. Of our graduating cohort, ten students have gained early entry into their preferred course at their chosen University.

ATAR results are only one indicator of academic success at St Hilda’s School. In the Class of 2022, 51 students graduated with additional vocational qualifications, including courses in Animal Studies, Business, Community Services, Construction, Early Childhood Education and Care, Fashion, Health Services, Library Information Services, Nursing, Retail, and Screen and Media.

We congratulate Sienna Shen on her achievement of a 99.80 ATAR score. Sienna is St Hilda’s 2022 Dux of School.

We also wish to celebrate some additional successes for the cohort:
• 100% of the cohort passed all of the subjects and all students have been awarded their QCE.
• Four students achieved 100/100 in one subject, with one student achieving this exceptional result in two subjects.
• Eight students achieved 99/100 in at least one subject.
• Twenty students (18% of the cohort) achieved an overall result of “A” in all of their subjects.
• Collectively the cohort achieved 244 overall subject results of “A”.

These outstanding results are testament to the students’ dedication to their studies.
We also share, with the students’ consent, that three of our students have been awarded significant scholarships for 2023 and beyond:

• Natalie Brown was awarded a full scholarship at Sydney University for Engineering.
• Sienna Shen was awarded the Sir Samuel Griffith Scholarship Principal’s Recommendation Program.
• Poppy Jane-Todd was awarded the Ramsay Scholarship.

I look forward to learning more about the Class of 2022’s pathways when university offers are made.

We wish our graduates every success in their future endeavours, and look forward to reconnecting with them and celebrating their achievements at the Scholars’ Assembly on Wednesday 1 February followed by our 2022 Graduates Afternoon Tea on Friday 3 February 2023.

I sincerely thank all parents, carers and staff whose support, encouragement and guidance have been instrumental in supporting our students’ impressive achievements.
