SACE Merit Ceremony 2021

The SACE Merit Ceremony 2021 was held as a physical, COVID-safe event at Government House. The event ran over three days, from Monday 1 February to Wednesday 3 February 2021, in order to facilitate a safe environment for attendees and staff.

Invitations to the Merit Ceremony 2021 were emailed to Merit recipients using the email address registered in their Students Online account. This could have been either a school email address or a private email address.
