Highlights from 2020
Cedar has been greatly blessed this year and we are truly grateful. We would especially like to congratulate the Year 12 Class of 2019 on the success achieved throughout the year.
Every graduating student achieved their South Australian Certificate of Education, as has been the case for many years at Cedar. This is a significant achievement, especially when one considers the additional challenges faced by students in 2020.
During the 2019 School Year, our student enrolment peaked at 838. Of this number, 379 were enrolled in the Primary School (R-6), 250 in the Middle School (7-9) and 209 were enrolled in the Senior School (10-12).
Academic Performance 2020
In terms of the Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR), 20% of our graduating Year 12s achieved an ATAR of greater than 90, and 42% of our students achieved an ATAR of 80 or more, placing them in the top 20% of students in the state. To have 42% of our students placed in the top 20% of South Australian students is an amazing achievement.
It is also worth noting that 83% of the grades awarded to our Year 12s in 2020 were either an A or a B, and we witnessed a significant increase in the amount of A grades awarded this year. We also had four students presented with a SACE Merit for outstanding achievement within a subject.
Further to this, 92% of our students applying for a university course received a first-round offer, and of these students, 84% were offered their first preference course. It is exceptionally pleasing to see so many of our students able to pursue the pathway of their choice.
We continue to be very proud of the outstanding results that our Year 12s achieve, and feel extremely blessed to be part of a school community where students can fulfil their God-given academic gifts, and progress to exciting post-school opportunities and pathways.
The National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) assesses all students in Australian schools in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9. Cedar College publishes NAPLAN results in the complete 2019 Performance Report available for download. NAPLAN results are also available in full from the MySchool website.
