Year 12 Students

Our Year 12 students are completing their schooling, currently having sat their mock exams, and they are now preparing for their final ATAR exams. They have been an excellent group of young people and we wish them well for the future and we look forward to their Graduation Ceremony this coming Friday.

I was reading a recent edition of an educational journal called Education Matters, and there was an article suggesting that the three most important things for success in exams are:
• Sleep
• Exercise, and
• Taking responsibility for your studies.

These simple wisdoms apply to all of our students, not just Year 12’s.

The ACC ranked every event using all the results of competitors from the different divisions and scored them accordingly.

The top two athletes in each event were named in the ACC All Stars team. The following students made the All Stars team for 2022 - which is the most students ever to represent Aranmore:

Jacob Scoon
Olivia Wolmarans
Palace Koia
Adam Summers
Aaron Hubert

Olivia Wolmarans also finished Runner-up U15 Champion girl for all U15 athletes according to the ranking of the events.

Palace Koia finished as U14 Champion girl.

This is an amazing achievement for these two girls 

Congratulations to Mr Luke O'Neil and the PE staff for their hard work in getting the athletes ready and attending on the day. Aranmore has done the best in 2022!!
