Narrogin ag college celebrates top marks after challenging year
WA College of Agriculture — Narrogin has excelled in 2020 VET and WACE results.
The college was one of only six schools in the State to have 100 per cent of WACE-eligible students achieve VET Certificate II or higher. Joining them was WA College of Agriculture Harvey and Denmark, along with Warwick Senior High School, Clarkson Community High School and Joseph Banks Secondary School.
The Narrogin college also ranked third out of regional public schools, with 96.8 per cent of eligible students achieving WACE, topped only by WA College of Agriculture — Cunderdin with 100 per cent and Busselton Se-nior High School with 98.7 per cent.
Principal Clare Roser said they were very impressive results.
“There is a heck of a lot of wraparound support that goes into getting kids achieving certificates at Narrogin Ag,” Ms Roser said. “There are a lot of counselling that goes into choosing the best pathway for those students.
“It’s always hard with a small cohort, as one student who doesn’t achieve can take the whole cohort back quite a few per cent, so the school were very happy with the results.” Ms Roser commended both the students and the school’s staff for their efforts last year.
“We’ve got around 130 boarders here who not only have the pressure of getting through their certs or ATAR courses or general courses but they have the added pressure of living away from home,” she said.
