Saint Stephen’s College student earns a place among ‘academic elite’
An impressive 99.9 Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) and an OP1 has earned Saint Stephen’s College Dux Matthew Bishop an offer of a full scholarship into Melbourne University this year - and a place among the country’s ‘academic elite’.
College Headmaster, Jamie Dorrington, said Matthew was one of three OP1 achievers at the College in 2014. Four OP2 students also received an equivalent OP1 score.
“Our goal at Saint Stephen’s College is to work with our students and their families to develop character and inspire hope. Of course developing the academic potential of students is a vital part of this process,” said Mr Dorrington.
“We are always delighted when students are recognised for their outstanding achievements and last year’s Dux, Matt Bishop, deserved and received particular recognition.
“Matt not only achieved an OP1, together with a number of other Saint Stephen’s College students, but he achieved an ATAR score of 99.9. The highest possible score in this national ranking system is 99.95 per cent, so Matt’s performance places him in a very elite group across Australia”.
“Matt was able to achieve this feat through hard work and the support of his family, teachers, academic advisor and his friends. I believe Matt has accepted a scholarship to Melbourne University this year.
“The entire school community wishes him and all the other graduates from 2014 the very best.”
