PERTH College’s 2018 high achievers returned to school last week to share their tips for this year’s Year 12s.

Along with celebrating their success, the graduates gave senior school students some inspiration for their studies.

Dux and Head Day Girl Tara Denman said sleep, good food and exercise were crucial.

“Year 12 is a long road, so it’s important to look after yourself – find what works for you and stick to it,” she said.

She encouraged students to make time for themselves and activities outside school, rather than focusing only on study.

“It’s such a special year, so don’t miss any opportunities to make memories with your friends.”

Ms Denman was one of five students who scored an ATAR of over 99 at Perth College, with 34 students also scoring over 95.

Almost half of the cohort studied three or more STEM subjects, seven elite athletes completed their studies while representing the state or the country, and the group overall completed 6791 hours of community service.
