Hale students achieved outstanding results in the WACE examinations in 2011. Six General Exhibitions were awarded, all in the first fifteen of the top forty places in the state: Ben Joseph (3rd), Ryan Huynh (5th), Clark Mei (9th), Brandon Doney (10th), Robert Yeoh (12th) and Robin Chab (15th).
Course Exhibitions, presented to the top students in the state in each course, were awarded to five students: Rohan Mehra for Engineering Studies, Ryan Huynh for Mathematics, Ben Joseph for Mathematics: Specialist, Joseph Havlat for Music and Brendon Lim for Physical Education Studies.
Hale School students have now won the Engineering Studies Course Exhibition every year since its introduction 5 years ago. To win both of the course exhibitions for Mathematics in WA, as Ben Joseph and Ryan Huynh did, is especially noteworthy. It is the first time Hale students have topped the state in Music and PE Studies.
25 Certificates of Distinction, for being in the top 0.5% of a course, were received by Hale students. This is the highest number the School has ever received. Similarly, a record number of 31 Certificates of Excellence were awarded.
An equally significant measure of students’ success relates to the achievement of ATARs (Australian Tertiary Admission Ranks). The School’s medium ATAR of 92.75 was the highest ever achieved by Hale students. Four students from Hale were among the top 15 in Western Australia who achieved the perfect score of 99.95: Brandon Doney, Clark Mei, Ben Joseph, Ryan Huynh.
Twenty seven students (13% of the Year 12 cohort of 190 students to receive an ATAR) gained an ATAR of 99.0 or more.
Forty students (21%) gained an ATAR of 98.0 or more.
Seventy six students (40%) gained an ATAR if 95.0 or more.
One hundred and twelve students (59%) gained an ATAR of 90.0 or more.
The school is immensely proud of the Year 12 students of 2011 for their outstanding academic success and for their commitment to the community life of the school in service learning, sport, music, drama and other co-curricular activities.
