Welcome to Term 1, 2018

January 30th, 2018

Message from the Principal:

Dear Parents and Families,

Happy new year to all of our families and welcome to Kennedy Baptist College for 2018. In particular, welcome to all of our new families who are joining us for the first time this year. We trust that everyone has had a safe, relaxing and enjoyable holiday and are now ready to commence the new academic year with excitement.

Work has continued over the past weeks in preparing and planning great opportunities for all students and we look forward to sharing these throughout the year. Our goal at Kennedy is to equip students to seize these opportunities and strive for greatness in all that they do. After reviewing all events that took place throughout a very busy 2017 we are extremely confident of continuing to provide opportunities for excellence this year and look forward to students embracing all that is on offer in another exciting year.

Year 12 Results

Our 12 students produced some very pleasing WACE results at the end of last year.. Congratulations to Rachel Lee who achieved the exceptional ATAR score of 99.6, closely followed by David Xing who achieved an ATAR of 99.2. Kennedy Baptist College had 16 students achieve an ATAR score greater than 95.0, an excellent effort.

Congratulations also to Aaron Meadowcroft who achieved a certificate of distinction, for being in the top 0.5% of the state for Business Management and Enterprise. An outstanding effort.

Kennedy was also identified as a School with the highest performing students in the courses of:

  • Business Management and Enterprise
  • Economics
  • Psychology

The class of 2017 produced some pleasing results due to their hard work and the support provided by College staff to ensure students achieve their goals. However, these results also reinforce that our students and parents need to be realistic when selecting student academic pathways. Our 2017 results support the College Administration view that some students are still attempting an ATAR pathway when they may have achieved better results by choosing the General course pathway.
