Yours in St Mary MacKillop,
We spoke with a few students after results were released. Here's what they had to say:
"I checked my ATAR and I cried – but they were happy tears! For the past two years, I’ve had ‘90+ ATAR’ written on my wall as a goal. I wasn’t expecting to get as high as I got, but I’m very happy. I love learning and I knew from the start of Year 11 that I wanted to do the best I could. I got a lot of support from my teachers – they were just amazing and encouraged me all the way. It’s been a really good two years and I’m so happy with how it ended. Next year I’m going to do a Bachelor of Science and will also study Italian."
"I’m quite happy. It’s nice to have some validation for the hard work that I’ve put in and I want to thank the staff for their hard work, too. I often have trouble finding motivation to do things, but I’d say I definitely put in the effort where it counts! Next year, I’m going to go to university to do a research degree in Maths and Computer Science, which should be fun."
"I was kind of in shock – I wasn’t expecting it. I got 99.15! I have always tried my best in everything and I listened to the teachers and got their help when I was stuck. I also picked the subjects I was interested in so I wanted to do them and to do well. Next year I’m going to do Politics, Philosophy, and Economics, maybe with Law as well. I’m glad I chose to come here. I really enjoyed it and I had so many opportunities. The teachers really made a difference, and I feel like I wouldn’t have done as well as I did without their help."
"I’m feeling really good, it was a good day today. I got 95.65! I really wanted to get 90 and I thought it was achievable, so it’s a really good day today. I got there with hard work and great teachers – they’re the most important thing. With hard work and a great environment around you, you can do absolutely anything! My plan is to study Psychology."
"I’m very happy – my score is six points above my estimate and I got the score that I wanted. I already had an unconditional offer at ANU to do Medical Science, but it was just more of a personal goal to get an ATAR in the 90s, I just really wanted that so I’m very happy. I just put in a lot of hard work – some late nights studying, staying behind at school when others had gone home – I definitely put the work in for it so I’m glad I got there in the end."
"I am very excited to have been accepted into NIDA for 2021. Going to NIDA has been a dream of mine since primary school. I will be studying a Diploma of Live Production and Technical Services, to build on the knowledge I have gained through the supportive staff and my studies at MacKillop. At NIDA I will be immersed in an enormous range of live productions and events including theatre, dance, opera, concerts, and festivals. My plan for the future is to travel around the world, working on live productions with large touring companies."
