Mazel Tov to the Class of 2018

Kol Ha’kavod to our Year 12 Graduates – First in the State!

Read The Age article: VCE & ATAR Results 2018: The top government and non-government schools in Victoria, featuring comments by Principal Jeremy Stowe-Lindner on coming first in the state.

We farewell our graduating class as a warm, inclusive and very high achieving year level who contributed to every aspect of school life.

Some highlights include:

  • 100% of students “buddied” together with a Prep student throughout their final year of study;
  • 30% of students voluntarily held school leadership positions in the Mazkirut (school leadership team);
  • 54% of the year level completed leadership training and went on to mentor younger students during their senior years;
  • Over $21,000 raised by students for external charities;
  • 80% of Year 11 and over half of Year 12 competed in competitive interschool sport and the College has been in more grand finals than in any other year in our history;
  • 85 VCE students were involved in visual and performing arts events during their VCE years, including half of the Class of 2018.

The following results also reflect the commitment and hard work of the students and their dedicated teachers:

  • 14% of students scored 98 or above, placing them in the top 2% of the State, 7% of which attained a score of 99 or above, placing them in the top 1% of the State;
  • 31% achieved scores of 95 or above, placing them in the top 5% of the State;
  • 59% scored 90 or above, placing them in the top 10% of the State;
  • 7 perfect study scores of 50 across 4 subjects: Naomi Bagle-Zevin (Religion and Society) who also achieved the highest unscaled score in Hebrew in the State (48), Hannah Grodski (English and Religion & Society), Bailey Levin (Accounting), Lee Oz Lifschitz (Religion and Society), Sahar Shavit (English) and Sienna Tugendhaft (Studio Arts);
  • 40% of study scores were 40 or above placing them in the top 8% of the State;

The median study score was 38 and the median ATAR score was 91.05

Congratulations go to the 2018 Bialik College Dux Sahar Shavit for achieving the remarkable score of 99.9, a perfect study score in English and the highest grade in the University of Melbourne Extension Progam (UMEP) in Hebrew. A member of the Mazkirut, the Student Leadership Team, Sahar’s combination of modesty, generosity of spirit, balanced approach to life and impressive work ethic is an inspiration to all.

In addition to the Dux, the following students achieved scores of 99 or above: Isabel Gelb, Hannah Grodski, Bailey Levin and Amy Liberman.

Chaim Nachman Bialik encouraged us to Step Forth With Courage into the world. All students should be equally proud of their results. To ‘be your best’ is to work your hardest, achieve your potential and contribute positively to community. We could not be prouder of all of our Class of 2018.
