Dear Parents and Friends of Woodleigh School, So much time and effort goes into the final years of schooling. The investments made by our students, in time and effort, are massive. The work our teachers do, is phenomenal. It is most gratifying then to see students’ persistence and application rewarded with excellent results, personal bests and clear pathways to future success. Today we are particularly proud of The Class of 2015. A fantastic group of young adults who have had great success this year.

I am delighted to announce that the Dux of Woodleigh School for 2015, with an ATAR of 99.45, is Rebecca Sherrington. Bec was one of nine students who received an ATAR of 95 or more, a result that caps off a fantastic year of achievement for her, having already been named, together with Rhiannon Van Vliet, as a joint recipient of The Woodleigh Prize.

I would also like to acknowledge the results of Liam Bullard, Tea Christmas, Mayra Cuming, Fraser Dawson, Julian Lee, Eliza Nowicki, Casley Rowan and Bobbie Viney, who all achieved scores over 95, as well as celebrating Casley Rowan’s perfect study score of 50 in English. A most impressive, and well deserved result.

As a group, The Class of 2015 have performed incredibly well and they are now well set to follow their chosen, post-Woodleigh paths.

In 2015:

• 10.3% of Woodleigh students achieved an ATAR of 95 or more.
• 24.1% of Woodleigh students achieved an ATAR of 90 or more.
46% of Woodleigh students achieved an ATAR of 80 or more.
And 90.8% of Woodleigh students achieved an ATAR of 50 or more placing them in the top half of the state.

Stories of student success at Woodleigh are not limited to those who have achieved top academic scores. Every student from The Class of 2015 has undertaken a broad range of learning experiences beyond core academia and as a result, leave Woodleigh School ready for life. Our efforts throughout the fifteen years of tuition offered at Woodleigh School are focused on graduating mature, independent, resilient individuals. A Woodleigh education is about so much more than an ATAR.

Each year we farewell a class of articulate, confident and personable young adults who have developed the necessary skills to find their way and succeed in their chosen vocation. Each year, our students leave Woodleigh with much more than a list of academic successes. They leave with an understanding of who they are, if not exactly where they are headed.

We wish all students from The Class of 2015 the very best as they head off to write the next chapter in their lives – be it University, TAFE, work, travel or community service programs abroad.

Best wishes,

Jonathan Walter – Principal
