St Paul’s Manly on the move!
St Paul’s Catholic College, Manly congratulates the Class of 2017 on their outstanding HSC results. College Principal, Mr Chris Browne said “42.5% of our boys are represented across Bands 5 and 6. We have doubled the number of band 6 placements this year. In total there were 51 band 6 and 131 band 5 results.”
The College ranked 150th in the state for band 6 achievement, 41st of 130 Catholic schools and 2nd in the Broken Bay Diocese. In Advanced and Extension English the College was 3rd in the state for systemic catholic boys’ schools and 49th overall. Twelve St Paul’s boys achieved the highest in their subject in the Diocese of Broken Bay.
Gus Reid, who scored a band 6 in more than 10 of his ATAR calculated units, achieved an ATAR of 97.95, and was listed on the HSC all-rounder achievers list. Giacomo Nassif scored an ATAR of 97.65 and Isaiah Vumbaca scored 96.75, while Matthew O’Brien placed 16th in the state in General Mathematics 2.
We are extremely proud of the boys and acknowledge the work of their teachers who have contributed to the success of our Year 12 students. Mr Browne also noted that “these academic results are a wonderful complement to the community service, social justice and sporting achievements of our boys.”
St Paul's Catholic College, Manly is a systemic Year 7 to 12 school catering for boys on Sydney's Northern Beaches for over 80 years. Our aim is to provide an excellent academic education in the Catholic tradition, enabling each boy to develop to his full potential. An education at St Paul's will inform, encourage and excite each boy and promote the Catholic values of acceptance, love, forgiveness, compassion and prayerfulness in every aspect of school life.
The motto of St Paul's College is "Prima Primum" – First Things First – and is a challenge to all members of the St Paul's Community to properly arrange life's priorities. At St Paul's we aim for excellence in every area and purposefully educate each person's spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and emotional growth. We also recognise that parents are the prime educators of their children and we endeavour to support, compliment and involve them in the education of their sons.
The College aims to produce confident young men who are flexible, innovative and well-rounded decision makers and who are consequently well-prepared to meet the challenges of a good tertiary education and a successful career. We have worked hard to create a school, which is at once challenging, yet friendly; demanding, yet supportive; serious in purpose, yet light in spirit. To achieve our aims we provide extensive Information Technology facilities, an excellent Information Resource Centre and dedicated, experienced and professional staff who teach in a disciplined and happy atmosphere.
We are very proud of our school, of its excellence, character, energy and sense of fun, but you must judge whether it is the right place for your son.
Mr Chris Browne B.Ed, M.Ed (Ed.Admin), M.Ed.Stud, MACE, G.C.Theol.
