Of the 36 Victorian students who achieved the highest possible ATAR of 99.95 in 2018, five studied at Melbourne Grammar School. Fifty per cent of our students reached an ATAR of 90 or more, placing them in the top 10% in the State, and twelve boys received perfect study scores in one or more individual subjects.
Like many of our students, these boys have interests and talents in debating, drama, music, sport and more, extending well beyond the classroom. I believe that this pursuit of a rich and varied life is one of the most valuable lessons students learn at Melbourne Grammar School and it is my fervent hope that all students will continue in this manner throughout their lives.
While I recognise our highest achieving students, I also acknowledge the intrinsic motivation and sheer hard work that is required for a student to reach their personal best. I want to congratulate all students for whom this was the case. Our median ATAR score is an impressive 90.1.
A large number of our students began their educational journey at Grimwade House. A note of thanks to the many fine teachers who have contributed to the boys’ academic achievements throughout their time with us, particularly those guiding the boys this year. Of course, without their expertise and dedication, the excellent 2018 VCE outcomes would not have been possible.
Finally, I applaud the Class of 2018 for their cohesiveness, and support of each other, while at Melbourne Grammar School. It has been a pleasure to work with such a positive group of young men. I wish them all the very best in their future endeavours.
