2021 SACE Results

Congratulations to the Class of 2021!                          100% SACE Completion

The Norwood Morialta High School community is delighted to announce the outstanding South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) results achieved by our Class of 2021.

We are very proud of our 2021 graduates’ achievements. This special group represents the end of an amazing era being the last graduating class for Norwood Morialta High school. From 2022 our school will be located on one site and will be known as Norwood International High School.

Over the past two years our graduates demonstrated flexibility, consideration for others, resilience and determination to rise above the challenges of the COVID pandemic and studying within (what has felt like) a construction site.

These impressive achievements are indicative of the hard work, passion and tenacity that our students displayed throughout the year. The collective results also reflect the great passion, skills and professionalism of our teachers who support our students to flourish in learning and life.

We congratulate all students who achieved their personal best and in particular wish to acknowledge the following students (who are recognised in the top 2% of the nation):
