OP scores wow the west

WARWICK State High School seniors are prepared to live up to the high expectations set by 2009 graduates as the school performed highly in the Year 12 outcomes report for 2009.

Out of 82 students, who went for an OP, there were 95 per cent of students who applied through QTAC and received a tertiary offer to continue on at higher education.

Seventeen of these students achieved an OP between one and five and 74 per cent of students achieved an OP between 1 to 15.

WSHS principal David Ferguson said he was very pleased with the results, which were released yesterday and the school had shown a steady improvement in results from year to year.

“Being quite a large state high school means we can offer a broad range of subjects, which include a significant number of OP subjects,” Mr Ferguson said.

Mr Ferguson said he believed the results reflected the work of their outstanding staff who dedicate a lot of their time to assisting the students to achieve combined with the dedication of the students themselves.

“I am very proud of the students, staff and happy for their families,” he told the Daily News.

The school is confident the current Year 12s will perform highly as they continue to focus on “excellence in performance”.

The results show the region continues to perform highly offering a quality education as a number of schools achieved high percentages for the 2009 results. The School of Total Education received 100 per cent for tertiary education with 89 per cent of students receiving an OP between 1 - 15.

Students from the Scots PGC College received 91 per cent with a tertiary offer and 12 of the 39 students reached an OP between 1 - 5.
