Leading Queensland independent school, Matthew Flinders Anglican College is celebrating its Class of 2020 achieving strong ATAR results.
The results were announced statewide on Saturday, 19 December.
The Flinders Class of 2020 recorded high results, both as a group and individually.
For example, the cohort achieved an impressive median ATAR of 93.15, which is roughly equivalent to an OP4 or higher in the old OP system.
On an individual level, 12 students achieved an ATAR of 99 or above, equivalent to an OP1.
And 24 students achieved straight A grades in all subjects.
To celebrate, all graduating students were invited to a morning tea event at the College, located in Buderim on the Sunshine Coast.
A Message from the Principal
Principal Stuart Meade said the College was proud of its students for remaining committed to their study through a disrupted final year.
“We are thrilled to have our Flinders Class of 2020 achieve an impressive median ATAR, especially after all they have endured in 2020,” Mr Meade said.
“It is wonderful to learn that more than 91.5% of our students achieved an ATAR greater than 65.5, which is the old OP15 cut-off,” he said.
“As a College community, we celebrate the efforts of Justin Holland, one of only 30 students in Queensland to receive the very highest ATAR of 99.95.
“It is also inspiring to have nine students achieve 100% in a variety of subjects. Impressively, Louisa Travers Jones achieved 100% in two subjects.
"What's more, a total of 24 students achieved straight A grades in all of their subjects.
“The Flinders Class of 2020 has demonstrated positivity and determination to succeed this year.
"We are excited for their next chapter beyond our College gates."
