Thank you

Thank you to all those who pulled together to help make the 2022 SACE Merit Ceremony a huge success.

The 34th SACE Merit Ceremony was held on 19 and 20 May recognising the academic success of 1,016 students who collectively achieved 1,282 subject merits last year.

Thank you to the Premier of South Australia the Honourable Peter Malinauskas, and Minister for Education, Training and Skills the Honourable Blair Boyer for their support and participation in the event.

The SACE Merit Ceremony has always been hosted on the grounds of Government House, and we thank Her Excellency the Honourable Frances Adamson AC for hosting the event for the first time as Governor of South Australia.

Guest speakers

Thank you to all the guest presenters that inspired students across the 9 sessions; Emmah Money, Professor Nicola Spurrier, Samoda Silva, Dr Eva Balan-Vnuk, Mali Isabel, Pru Raymond, Daniel Michael and Sumen Rai. We are sure that their words of wisdom and encouragement will have a significant impact on the graduating class of 2021.


Our thanks goes out to the talented musicians from Brighton Secondary School for providing music for the event. We would also like to thank the Vice-Regal Ensemble for providing the Vice-Regal Salute at the Governor’s Commendation and multiple merits session.


We would like to express our appreciation to the following organisations for their support: Adelaide City Council, Santos Ltd and Nippy’s Fruit Juices.
