“Lumen Christi Catholic College students have been blessed with success again this year. The hard work and dedication of the students and staff have seen some spectacular results,” said acting principal Colin Butters.
Extension History student Phillipa Harley achieved the top score in the state.
Lumen Christi students were awarded a total of 34 band 6 and 133 Band 5 results across the 374 examinations sat by the 71 students.
Seventeen students were recognised in the Merit list this year.

The merit list represents the wide range of student interests and abilities in the college with students being recognised in subjects as diverse as Mathematics, the Sciences, Humanities Creative Arts, Languages and Vocational Education.
Specific subjects on the merit list included, Ancient and Modern History, Geography, Business Studies, Studies of Religion, Italian, Indonesian, Personal Development Health and Physical Education, English, Drama, Music and Visual Arts. Some of these subjects were taken as Advanced and Extension Courses.
Eleven students receive ATAR rank in the 90s
Lumen Christi students were busy contacting the college on Thursday December 19, eager to share the good news of their ATAR success.
Unlike HSC scores, schools are not notified of students’ Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR), as a consequence, teaching and support staff wait expectantly through the day for students to make contact.
The first student emailed the college early in the day, Thursday, there was a trickle of news following, building to a steady stream by lunchtime.
For teachers attending professional development meetings throughout the day, each piece of news was greeted with loud cheers by the whole staff.
ATAR scores represent a rank out of 100. Philippa Harley, who made the merit list for the state topping Extension History course, achieved the very high 99.45.
Other students with an ATAR rank in the 90s included Molly Campbell
97.3; Bede Carr 90.6; Eliza Reed 95; Olivia McPherson 98.15; Jordyn Royle
91.7; Kate McDermott 91.75; Sienna McWhae-Brown 92.5; Rory Riddell 93.95; Adrian Croft 93.6 and Brigette Wright 94.
“This is an exceptional effort that should not go umentioned,” said acting principal Colin Butters.
“Lumen Christi Catholic College is justifiably proud of the whole class of 2013. We commend them for their efforts and congratulate them on their success. We wish them all the best for their very bright futures.”
