It was a morning of surprise for one Bunbury student after he discovered he had made it in to the exclusive 99 ATAR club.

For 17-year-old Manea Senior College student, Jon Kennedy the academic world is now his oyster after he achieved an impressive 99.10 ATAR.

“I was pretty shocked but pretty happy too – I’ve got a trainee-ship starting in January and I’ll be doing a Certificate III in Information Technology ,” he said.

The South-West graduate is still not sure what he wants to do at university but is looking forward to a break and is relieved the pressures of exams are now behind him. 

Manea Senior College principal Rod Rykers said Jon’s achievement was well deserved with a full 6 ATAR course load in Year 12 and daily travel from his home in Greenbushes. 

“We would like to congratulate Jon Kennedy on joining the exclusive 99 ATAR Club – his hard work, dedication and commitment to his studies along with the outstanding support provided by his family, friends and staff has seen him achieve exceptional results ” he said.
