They are appalling stats.
Is it the only school in the area?
No there are a few but sadly all are similar. We considered moving to a different area but due to a mixture of reasons including my business, finances etc, and the fact that there is an awesome private school only 20 minutes drive away that takes from prep - 12 we decided to stay in the area.
These are the results of the other schools near here:
Senior secondary certificate awarded 95
Completed senior secondary school 192
Students at university 17%
Students at TAFE/vocational study 34%
Students in employment 24%
Senior secondary certificate awarded 48
Completed senior secondary school 78
Students at university 11%
Students at TAFE/vocational study 36%
Students in employment 28%
Senior secondary certificate awarded 54
Completed senior secondary school 131
Students at university 20%
Students at TAFE/vocational study 21%
Students in employment 26%
You have results like that where only 67% of kids are going from high school into work or further study. It is appalling.
