HSC 2019

As the first newsletter of the year, it is a chance to share some of what our wonderful Year 12 class achieved in their HSC. We are tremendously proud and excited with these fabulous young people about what lies ahead for them.

Chelsea Morris-Barker’s Visual Art major work: Interwoven Narrative was selected to be exhibited in ARTEXPRESS at Sydney Olympic Park. Chelsea’s strong results across a number of subjects contributed to an excellent ATAR of 95.80. Three students, Riley Kent, Celeste Milligan Reyna and Juanita Porteiro were nominated to perform their Music pieces at HSC ENCORE.

Our students performed well across a range of subjects, a fitting reward for the effort and energy put into their studies over the two-year journey that is the HSC. These young people have worked hard together, and with their teachers, to ensure they have a range of options and opportunities available to themselves this year.

While plans are still being formulated for some, many others are on a path towards long-held career aspirations. These include employment, training within the defence forces for Riley Kent and Nick Sostarko, tertiary study through various TAFE courses or universities. Emily Hamlyn-Harris is about to embark on Medical Sciences study at UNSW, Joanna Serret will begin her Bachelor of Environment and Wilderness Studies in Tasmania. Jasmine Sampson is keen to pursue her dream to compete on the professional surfing circuit. Jayden Chadwick plans to take a gap year before his B Applied Sciences and Isaac Pace will embark on Aerospace Sys Engineering at U Newcastle.

From Arts, Biotechnology, Education, Exercise Science, Law, Pharmacy and Psychology the direction and possibilities seem endless.

We look forward to keeping in touch and following their contributions and exploits as they use their gifts.
