The opportunity to mix their academic studies with hands-on work on the College farm has once again proved to be a recipe for excellent results for WA College Agriculture-Denmark’s ATAR students.
The Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) number, determines a student’s entry into university and 60% of the College’s 2019 Year 12 ATAR students achieved ATAR’s of 70% or higher, the best result of any of the College’s graduating classes.
Principal, Kevin Osborne said, “We have been building a strong ATAR program for several years now and have had some outstanding individual ATAR’s in the high 90’s, but it is particularly pleasing to see so many of last year’s class perform strongly and gain direct entry into University courses.”
About a third of the students at the College sit for ATAR courses and the Principal firmly believes that the combination of practical and theoretical learning delivers the greatest benefit for every type of learner, resulting in demonstrated outcomes.
Graduates Olivia Miller, Deahna Keam and Tom Darwin all achieved ATAR scores over 90%.
