The Class of 2023: Ready to Conquer Tomorrow

Kennedy Baptist College endeavours to help every student reach their full academic potential while also giving them the tools and care that they need to develop into mature young adults. This intent is reflected in our dedication of Deputy Principal roles to both Curriculum and Pastoral Care.

Today, we look back on the Curriculum results of the graduating Class of 2023 and the evidence of the College’s high standards of education, while knowing that the values we have imparted will help keep them on the pathway to success.

Out of 85 Year 12 students who completed a full ATAR pathway, an impressive 18% achieved a ranking of 95 or more while over a quarter succeeded with an ATAR above 90. This is well above the ATAR that most Australian universities require for entrance, with many universities accepting students with a predicted ATAR between 70 and 80.

By also allowing our graduates to complete pathways that include Curtin University’s UniReady program, we enable our students to continue learning at their own pace after Secondary School. Indeed, 79% of our students were offered places in their preferred tertiary course, whether they completed a full ATAR pathway or completed a university preparation course.

In 2023, as in previous years at Kennedy, there were some students who were regarded as some of the highest achieving graduates in the state. To these students go Subject Exhibition Awards for attaining the highest WACE examination mark in the state for a subject and Certificates of Excellence for being in the top 0.5% of the state for their subject.

Congratulations to Leonnie Ly for being awarded the Subject Exhibition Award for Business Management and Enterprise, as well as the following students for earning Certificates of Excellence:

  • Leonnie Ly (Business Management and Enterprise) 
  • Harrison McDonald (Chemistry) 
  • Leila Pesich (Mathematics Applications) 
  • Ferguson Porter (Mathematics Applications) 

We had the opportunity to congratulate these students during our first whole-school Assembly for 2024. This was also a chance to present to several of our graduates Outstanding Academic Achievements. This achievement recognises the success of students completing ATAR and General courses and is given to graduates who finish with a result that would place them as one of the highest achieving students in the state. An outstanding 18 graduating students were awarded this in 2023, signalling the desire of the College to help our students achieve the best in everything that they do.

Congratulations once again to the Class of 2023. The great results of our graduates are a combination of the efforts of Kennedy staff and the hard work, dedication, and determination of each of you. We are confident that you will go on to make a positive difference in the world and we are excited to see what you will accomplish. We wish you all the best for your future endeavours, knowing that Kennedy Baptist College has helped to ensure that you can conquer tomorrow.
