It gives me great pleasure to present our outstanding 2020 Year 12 results to the Marden Senior College community.
Congratulations to the 356 students who undertook SACE Stage 2 subjects at Marden Senior College in 2020 for their personally rewarding SACE completion and ATAR achievement outcomes. At a college wide level, the high achievement of students was impressive, with:
- 50% of students achieved an A grade band result (compared to 30% state wide)
- 109 students achieved an A+, 27 of these students were resulted as A+ with merit
As a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) we also have a large number of students undertaking VET certificates. This year, 46% of students completed SACE with VET and these do not include students who undertook VET at Marden Senior College but SACE resulted via their home school. VET certificates provide strong employment pathways and remain an important contributor to SACE completion.
These are outstanding results and sincere congratulations to all students and their families. We wish you all the very best as you move into life beyond school.

Marden Senior College remains open and operating as usual. The Department for Education and SA Health will inform anyone who needs to self-isolate due to ongoing contact tracing.
Appropriate practices have been employed at the college to provide a safe working environment for students and school staff. Like other workplaces, the following advice applies.
Stay home if you’re sick
It’s important that students and staff who are unwell stay at home and recover to avoid the spread of illnesses (not just COVID-19). Now is not the time to soldier on. People are also advised to get tested if they have symptoms (even if mild).
If a student becomes unwell with flu-like symptoms while at school, their parents/carers will be contacted immediately, and infection control practices will be enacted.
Follow self isolation and quarantine directions
South Australia has clear directions in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 that may require people to self-isolate or self-quarantine. For updates and the latest advice go to covid-19.sa.gov.au.
- People arriving from overseas or high risk interstate areas are often required to self-quarantine for 14 days.
- People in South Australia are required to self-isolate if they:
- are waiting for their COVID-19 test result
- have been advised by SA Health that they are a close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case
- have tested positive for COVID-19
Maintain physical distancing
Adopting practical physical distancing measures by keeping 1.5 metres distance from others wherever, and whenever possible. Avoid hugging and kissing and swap handshakes for a wave.
Practise good hygiene
Practising good hygiene is the first step in preventing the spread of disease. All students and staff should:
- Wash their hands regularly using soap, particularly after using the toilet and before eating. Use alcohol based hand sanitisers, available on site, as an alternative.
- Cover a cough or sneeze with a tissue or arm.
- Do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth.
To make school as safe as possible increased daily site cleaning in place and adequate supplies of soap, hand sanitiser, tissues and surface wipes are available.
In line with the most recent COVID-19 Update received from the Department for Education regarding guidelines for school events:
“ceremonies held off-site at private venues are now capped at 100”.
We have regretfully made the decision to cancel the 2020 Marden Senior College Presentation Ceremony.
This decision was not taken lightly but due to the restrictions on gatherings it is unable to proceed.
Our congratulations go out to all graduating students and those receiving an academic award. All certificates will be mailed out in due course.
We wish students all the best for your future and thank them for their contribution to Marden Senior College.
Due to an unforeseen issue occurring on a statewide basis, the SACE Board electronic exam system for the Psychology exam became inaccessible.
According to the SACE Board, all students will receive a derived result for the exam.
