2019 Outstanding TCE Results

Posted on December 20, 2019

Congratulations to all our Year 11 & 12 students for their outstanding TCE results and their commitment to the School’s Purpose and Concerns.  We are proud of all of our 2019 graduates, their remarkable results and all that they have achieved during their time with The Friends’ School.

These results are a testament to the wonderful efforts of our students and to the dedication of their supportive school community. This was a year group that participated in all aspects of School life, represented the School’s values and they leave Friends’ enriched by much more than top ATARs.

Principal Nelson File congratulated the Class of 2019, whilst also acknowledging that Friends’ students are even more than their ATAR.

“Friends’ students are passionate young people who want to make a difference in the world. I know they will make an impact on those around them to help create a world that is sensitive to the needs of others and the environment, be strong in service and hold a global perspective.”

“These TCE students embody the school motto, ‘Nemo Sibi Nascitur – No One Is Born For Self Alone’.  Our students worked hard throughout the year and together, supported by their teachers and families, to achieve these excellent results.”

These results are the culmination of, in most cases, at least 14 years of education, with some Year 12 students’ results among the highest scores in the state, while for others, their hard work has resulted in achievements in doing their best.

The Friends’ School also has a number of International Baccalaureate Diploma students who will receive their results in early January.  The School looks forward to acknowledging their efforts in the coming weeks.

On behalf of the whole school community, congratulations to all our students on their hard work and excellent achievements. We hope that these young people go on to “let their lives speak”.

  • 9 TCE students achieved an ATAR of 98.5+, placing them in the top 1% of students nationally and the top 100 for the state.
  • Friends’ median ATAR was 89.6, meaning that 50% of our students earned results that placed them in the top 10.4% of students nationally.
