Jeremey was also awarded Merits for Digital Technologies and Research Project B.
The Governor of South Australia Commendation Award recognises not only excellence in Year 12 SACE subjects but also students who have used their personal qualities to make a difference in their local communities. We are honoured to have Anna Champion (ATAR 99.55) achieve this prestigious award. Anna also achieved five Merits (Legal Studies, English Literary Studies, General Mathematics, Modern History and Research Project B).
We congratulate the Class of 2021 on their diligence and dedication in achieving these outstanding results during another challenging year, supported by their families and our talented teachers and wish them all the very best for their future success.
