St Peters claimed the Wyong region’s only student to make the Distinguished High Achievers List (students who received a result in the highest band possible for one or more courses), in Elise Anderson, who secured top scores in Drama, English Advanced, Geography, Modern History, History Extension and Studies of Religion II.
