The St Paul’s Grammar School, Penrith, class of 2014 International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma students received their results last week, highlighting the long history of high academic achievement at the School. Principal Paul Kidson congratulated students, families and staff, noting that these outstanding results come from collective efforts. Rashmi Shingde of Leonay and Andrew Coulshed of Mount Riverview were joint duces of the St Paul’s class of 2014 both achieving a rare perfect IB score of 45 out of a maximum possible 45 equating to the top possible Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) of 99.95! Having studied the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma their results confirm Rashmi and Andrew as equal top students in the world! A total of thirteen students achieved IB scores of 37 or above, equating to ATARs above 95. The number of students in the cohort this year was 42. IB Diploma results are not included in school rankings based on HSC scores and as such do not reflect St Paul’s Grammar School as one of the best schools in NSW in terms of academic results. Other top scoring IB Diploma students included Kara Cummins (IB 42: ATAR 99.40) both of Mount Riverview, twins, Joe (IB 41: ATAR 98.80) and Tom (IB 40: ATAR 98.15) McMahon both of Cranebrook, Sally Armsworth (IB 40: ATAR 98.15) of Bligh Park and Mikey Epiha (IB 40: ATAR 98.15) of Richmond. International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme Coordinator, Mr. Antony Mayrhofer, congratulated the students, commenting: “The outstanding academic results of St Paul’s IB Diploma graduates reflects their commitment to the International Baccalaureate Diploma over the past two years. The dedication of their teachers, whose vast IB experience in the classroom, as IB examiners and in IB curriculum development is un-equaled in Australia, must also be credited with these fine results. It should also be noted that as St Paul’s is the only NSW School to offer all three IB Programmes, some of these students have only ever known an IB education!”Read More
