The College has ranked 22nd in the State, overall, and in the top ten of Independent schools, with almost 60 per cent of students achieving a 90+ ATAR.

College Principal, John Hamey commented: “The achievements are both a reflection of the students’ strong intellect and fine character development. The measure of our school is far greater than just academic achievement; it must also encapsulate the moral character and integrity of our graduates of which we are enormously proud.”

2013 Dux went to Liora Baram for achieving the highest possible ATAR of 99.95 and a place on the State Honour Roll.

Liora also placed First in the State for 2U Classical Hebrew.

Students who achieved above 90 (Band 6) in at least ten units of study were Liora Baram, Nechama Basserabie, Talia Blomson, Jared Engelman, Ilana Gottlieb, Sarah Katz, Aaron Meyer, Gabriel Moldovan, Sarah Rubinstein, Michael Seeff, Nathan Sher and Aaron Springer.

“The Class of 2013 is the embodiment of our school motto, ‘To Learn, To Heed, To Act’,” said John Hamey.

“Many of these students have shown real grit in overcoming significant personal challenges in their efforts to make a valuable contribution to the school community, combined with a strong desire to achieve their personal best – often exceeding expectation.”

Of the 141 Moriah HSC students who received an ATAR, 11 gained a rank of 99 or over, placing them in the top 1% of the State. This equates to 7.8% of Moriah candidates.

A further 38 students gained an ATAR over 95 which means that 49 HSC students or 34.8% gained a place in the top 5% of the State.

Acting head of High School, Karen Ingram thanked the students for enhancing the life of the College and for being positive role models.
