In their final two years of school, our students undertake the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE), which will lead most to courses of their choice at university or TAFE, while others will make a strong start to life in the workforce.
At the end of 2015, more than half of our graduating class achieved an ATAR above 80 and almost a third achieved higher than 90. This put Helena College in the top fifty schools in the state for WACE results.
Helena College has a commitment to offering a full and broad range of subjects even, where practicable, in situations where there is a smaller than usual number of students. We are also committed to developing each student as independent, self directed learners, through our timetabling of weekly private study sessions that are supervised by a teacher who can provide assistance or individual tutoring.
Education is linked to independence – financial, emotional and social; being a good citizen in society.
But a tertiary qualification does not guarantee a career. Careers are grafted through motivation and determination.
Ian Lyons, Principal
The aim is to provide a rich learning environment, equipping our students not just for further study or entry to the workforce, but for their lives as active and committed global citizens with a passion for life-long learning.
