We are very proud of our graduating students who, collectively, have achieved results of such a high standard that Carmel has been rated as a top ten school in WA for Median ATAR. Carmel has been ranked 10th in WA and we were also listed as a top school for Religion and LifeMathematics Applications and English. Carmel missed out on being mentioned for Literature and Mathematics Specialist as we had fewer than 10 students enrolled in these subjects, but these results too were nothing short of spectacular.

Every year, the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (SCSA) also publish the names of Year 12 students who have excelled in a specific subject and /or in WACE in general. A full list of the awards can be found online here.

Fifty awards known as General Exhibitions are awarded to eligible students who obtain the fifty highest WACE award scores. General exhibitions are awarded to recognise outstanding academic achievement in Year 12 ATAR courses. We are proud to report that Rachel Hertzman has been awarded a General Exhibition. Mazal Tov Rachel for this outstanding achievement!

Certificates of Excellence are awarded to eligible candidates who are in the top 0.5 per cent of candidates in each ATAR course examination, based on the examination score. Rachel Hertzman was awarded a Certificate of Excellence in Literature and Religion and LifeElla Tairy received a Certificate of excellence for Mathematics Applications. We congratulate Rachel and Ella, as well as their supportive teachers and families for this terrific accomplishment.

Certificates of Merit and Certificates of Distinction recognise student achievement in the WACE and are dependent on the degree of difficulty of the courses and programs undertaken, together with the student’s level of achievement. These awards are based on the grades awarded to students by their schools.

We thank all our teachers, from Kindy through to Year 12, who worked tirelessly to help every student achieve their very best. And of course we thank our students for their diligence and for giving us such nachas throughout their time here at Carmel!

WACE and ATAR achievement are but one measure of a successful Carmel graduate. What makes us most proud is that our graduates are menschen, strong in their Jewish identity and are young men and women of purpose, generosity, kindness and commitment.

We’re looking forward to another year of success and supporting our students to achieve their goals, and of course we look forward to seeing all our wonderful students at the start of the 2018 school year!
