The School is incredibly proud of the way our class of 2023 embraced every opportunity they were presented with both in and outside of the classroom. They have applied themselves to their studies in a dedicated and enthusiastic manner and balanced this with involvement in a wide array of co-curricular pursuits. The Class of 2023 approached this year with maturity and good humour and have actively pursued their potential to achieve excellent results.

This year’s cohort have a variety of plans for the immediate future from tertiary study in areas such as health, commerce and law, apprenticeships, Australian Defence Force traineeships and work.

You can read more about their individual results here.

St Paul’s students regularly achieve outstanding results and hence selection into the VCE Season of Excellence run by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA). Only the most outstanding VCE students from the previous year are invited to exhibit or perform.

Additional Student Achievements

Beyond the classroom students excel in a range of activities, including Tournament of Minds, DAV Debating (State Champions in Year 9 in 2022) and the Australian Mathematics Olympiad selection. Students are also involved in ICAS (International Competitions and Assessments for Schools), the Australian Mathematics Competition and local and state writing, speaking and art competitions. The Duke of Edinburgh Award is also undertaken by a number of students each year.

NAPLAN Results

Our 2023 NAPLAN results were again very positive, with the mean score for St Paul’s exceeding the national average in all areas of testing and at all year levels. In 2023, NAPLAN moved from May to March and the scale was reset, meaning that the progress measure will not be available until the 2023-2025 NAPLAN data can be compared. However, our focus on ensuring that students continue to improve remains paramount and an internal analysis of NAPLAN and other testing is used to help guide and develop the potential in all students.

We recognise that each year group is different and some are stronger than others. Hence, we believe it is important to ensure that the individual needs of every child are catered for, learning is personalised to them and they are given every opportunity to not only achieve their personal best but to thrive.

Post-School Destinations

From astrophysics to zoology, anything is possible with a St Paul’s education.

Our most recent graduates benefited from an extensive network to support their academic endeavours during their final year of secondary schooling. Paired with their brilliant representation across all areas of co-curricular, our Class of 2023 left us ready to pursue a range of study, employment and other pathways.

We are proud of the many avenues a St Paul’s education has provided our Class of 2023. Over 90% of our students continued their studies at a university that inspired their interest and passion, with a small cohort choosing to further their learning in fields such as Medicine and Veterinary Science at interstate universities. The remainder of our graduates applied to TAFE, accepted apprenticeship and traineeship offers, or entered the workforce straight away. No matter their pathway, every student left us ready to embrace their future.
