South Australian country high school students have set a new record, with 3995 people completing their South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).
This is 162 more students than last year, and data reveals there was also an increase in regional students undertaking VET and receiving merit certificates as part of their SACE.
6 country students have also been names as Governor of South Australia Commendation recipients.
The Governor of South Australia Commendation recognises outstanding achievement in Year 12 subjects and in the qualities young people need for community life, citizenship, and work.
The recipients are:
Joshua Smith – Farrell Flat
Ronald Bromley – Berri
Victoria Kitschke – Mount Gambier
SACE Board Chief Executive, Dr Neil McGoran said “Having an increasing number of students complete Year 12 is a very pleasing result.
319 Aboriginal students across South Australia also comlpeted their SACE this year, with 113 coming from country areas.
