The outstanding academic achievements of South Australia’s Year 12 students have been recognised at the SACE Merit Ceremony at Government House today.
A total of 902 students across the state received 1141 subject merits for 2018, many of whom attended the ceremony.
26 Governor of South Australia Commendations were awarded, recognising students who have demonstrated the most outstanding academic and personal achievements in the SACE and the qualities young people need for community life, citizenship and work.
17-year-old Cyril Saji of Rostrevor College was announced as the recipient of the prestigious Tennyson Medal.
Education Minister John Gardner congratulated all award recipients on their achievements.
“Every one of these students is to be congratulated for their effort in achieving their personal best,” said Minister Gardner.
“These outstanding results have been achieved while students have met rigorous assessment standards, and I acknowledge their exceptional commitment and achievement.
“These students are poised for bright futures and I would like to wish them and all our Class of 2018 students well in their next endeavours.
“The certificate these young South Australians leave school with is internationally recognised and will enable them to enter higher education within Australia and across the world.
“It was also a privilege to present the Tennyson Medal today, which has more than 100 years of history behind it, and I congratulate Cyril Saji achieving the prestigious honour.”
