Working success All St Philips College 2011 year 10 and 11 students, including Louisa Borchers and Naomi Ingamelis, were issued with individual netbooks THE achievements of the Year 12 students in 2011 capped off another successful year for St Philips College. Headmaster Chris Tudor explained: The results by our Year 12 students were due to their hard work and that of their teachers. Weve been providing a quality education in Central Australia for more than 20 years and it is due to a combination of dedication, talent and hard work by everyone involved that these results have been attained. St Philips congratulates all those students who did their best to achieve results of which they can be proud, in particular College Dux, Natalie Tieck who came fourth in the NT with an ATAR of 99.2 and received a 20 in Specialist Mathematics. Mr Tudor said: There are many reasons as to why St Philips has succeeded so well. Our ability to adapt and change with the times assists us in meeting the needs of our students. Over the years, student needs have changed dramatically with the introduction of the technological age and St Philips is keeping up with the pace. Plus, the loyalty and dedication of the staff helps to contribute to a sense of stability and continuity. In 2011, three St Philips College teachers were recognised for their teaching excellence by the Association of Independent Schools of the Northern Territory. Head of Performing Arts Steve Kidd, was named Teacher of the Year, Steve Mumme was named Leading Teacher of the Year and Kerry Macpherson was named the winner of the Outstanding Contribution to Students with Special Needs category. In 2012 the college is gearing up for another successful year for its students and staff. On Monday next week, Year 12 students start school. On Tuesday, Year 7 students start school so they can begin their pastoral care and the Big Buddy support system with senior students. All other students will start on Wednesday, February 1.
