The IB Diploma Program is an enriching and challenging two-year journey and I congratulate our students on these results which are indicative of their hard work, passion and tenacity. These results would not have been possible without the many people who have supported our IB students on their journey, notably parents, guardians and staff. Please join me in thanking our dedicated teaching staff, mentors and Heads of House who have equipped, empowered and challenged our Year 12 IB students to achieve their best.

On behalf of the St Peter’s College community, I extend best wishes to the 2018 Year 12 IB students for the next stage of their lives.

A full breakdown of combined SACE and IB results and the announcement of the Dux for the Class of 2018 (combined IB and SACE) will be published at the conclusion of the IB enquiry upon results period, in late January.

I wish you and your family a happy New Year.

Yours sincerely

Mr Tim Browning
Headmaster
