Kardinia International College Principal, Mr David Fitzgerald said he was delighted with the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB) results across the College.
“With the release of the IB Diploma results, we now have the complete picture of the academic performance of the Kardinia International College, Class of 2017.”
“We had one of our largest cohorts of students with 45 students undertaking the IB Diploma. This is on top of the excellent results our Year 12 VCE students received last month.”
“In addition to all the wonderful co-curricular and community service accomplishments during the year, our IB students have again produced another strong set of academic results.”
“Three students, including Erin Bennett, Justin Heaton and Alexander O’Byrne, achieved an IB score of 42 out of 45, equating to an ATAR of 99.40, a further three students achieved 41, converting to an ATAR of 98.85.”
“The College achieved an average IB score of 34, which equates to an ATAR of 91.10. This compares to the worldwide average IB score (in December 2016) of 28.9.”
“Fifty-eight percent of our IB Diploma students received an ATAR above 90, with 98 percent of IB students receiving an ATAR above 80.”
“Combined with our strong Year 12 VCE results, we now have the complete picture of our 2017 Year 12 cohort. Overall, when we combine IB and VCE results 24.4 percent of Year 12 students achieved an ATAR above 90 and a total of 47.3 percent of Year 12 students achieved an ATAR above 80.”
“These results reflect the efforts and commitment by all students and staff who have worked with them throughout their time at Kardinia International College.”
“I sincerely thank the many teachers, families and friends who encouraged and supported our students throughout their studies this year.”
“The College is committed to a unique schooling experience based on our motto of ‘Wisdom Leads to Respect and Friendship’. Our motto is embedded in the school, and the challenging and personalised curriculum on offer, creates an engaging learning environment for all of our students.” said Mr Fitzgerald.
