Shoalhaven Anglican School, has established a strong academic tradition in its short history. As a small School, we are proud to offer a broad curriculum and help students set and achieve high achievement goals. Each year, the majority of our graduating students secure positions at tertiary institutions across NSW and beyond.
In 2011, the School enjoyed solid academic success across all levels of the School:
In the Higher School Certificate 98% of students scored Band 3 or greater across all courses. 27% of students achieved Band 5 or greater across all courses.
The highest ATAR was achieved by Nathan Hardy at 90.85.
In the School Certificate 75% of students scored band 4 or greater across all courses, this was 12% ahead of the State average for the same measure. Of particular note was the English result with 92% of students achieving at Band 4 or greater.
The School provides a wide range of representative sporting opportunities through the Christian Schools Sports Association (CSSA), Combined Independent Schools (CIS) and All-Schools state and national competitions. In 2012, the School will compete in the following sporting events - swimming, athletics, cross-country, hockey, netball, volleyball, rugby union, cricket, soccer, golf, triathlon, tennis, equestrian, basketball, snowsports, surfing and AFL.
Each year, the School is represented by students who compete right through to State level competition, particularly in athletics and swimming. In 2011, representatives of the School competed in athletics, swimming, skiing, triathlon, soccer, netball and touch football at State Carnivals.
The School is also committed to supporting rising sports stars through flexible study modes. Current students compete at the elite levels while completing their studies at the School including National Age Champions in swimming and judo.
Shoalhaven Anglican School has considerable strength in creative and performing arts, both within the curriculum and through a number of opportunities beyond the classroom.
Over the last few years, the School has produced numerous winners and high achievers in the Shoalhaven City Eisteddfod in both music and drama. The School provided nearly half the acts for the inaugural South Coast Musical Society’s Mostly Mozart concert, a feat all the more significant on account of the audition-based method of selection into the concert. Several of the School’s music groups are asked regularly to perform at civic functions throughout the district.
In 2009, the School won the Macquarie University Greek Drama festival for the sixth successive year, in the process defeating some of Sydney’s most prestigious schools.
Four students have successfully exhibited in national art competitions over the last two years.
Several students have won scholarships in the fields of music, drama and visual art to further their studies.
