College’s high achievers recognised

WA College of Agriculture- Denmark has begun the year as strongly as it ended. The 2021 academic results have been released and they are definitely cause for celebration with many students applauded for their hard work throughout the year. Recent graduates Matthew Hadlow and Bryce van der Heide were among the College’s top ATAR achievers with College Dux Daniel Hadlow achieving an outstanding ATAR of 96.55.

Several students were also formally recognised by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority. Five students were identified as high achievers. Daniel Hadlow, Matthew Hadlow and Bryce van der Heide received Certificates of Distinction and both Georgia Dalton and Paris Pages were each awarded a Certificate of Merit.

The accolades do not end there with many students also achieving success in the Vocational Education and Training pathway. The majority (92%) of students graduated with three or more certificate qualifications including forty-seven students with a Certificate II in Agriculture, thirteen with a Certificate III in Advanced Wool Handling and nine students achieved a Certificate III in Agriculture.

The achievements of our students do not happen in isolation. College Principal, Rebecca Kirkwood, explained that the consistently strong outcomes occur because of strong partnerships. “Relationships are the key. We pride ourselves on the work that we do together as a team within our school. The collegiate nature of our environment with teaching, residential and farm staff working together in partnership with families is what makes our school so great. Our unique school site, a working farm set on 560 hectares, enables us to provide real and meaningful learning experiences for our students. In addition to this we have strong connections with industry. This keeps our courses current, relevant and engaging, providing a plethora of post school options for our students.”

The current year continues to look strong for the College. WACoA- Denmark remains a school of demand, with classrooms and residential facilities at capacity. The staff are excited to embrace the next cohort of learners.
