Adventist schools perform well in final exams
New South Wales
Macquarie College has good reason to celebrate, following the release of Higher School Certificate (HSC) results for the class of 2015. Having achieved 50 top band results, Macquarie College is one of the top 100 high schools in New South Wales, ranked at 88.
Year 12 dux Zoe Barton achieved Top All Rounder status, having received a mark of 90 or higher in all five examinations undertaken. She received an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) of 99.05 and came ninth in the state for Modern History.
“I would have ranked myself a ‘C’ student right up to Year 10, but I turned myself around in Year 11 and worked really consistently through every subject,” Zoe said. “My parents were so supportive and encouraged me to just do my best.”
Dr Bruce Youlden, principal of Macquarie College, congratulated all students on their achievements.
Avondale School has also registered strong HSC results with 22 per cent of their students on the distinguished achievers’ list, having received one or more top band results. Two students were among the Top 10 students in the state for their vocational education and training exams, placing fifth in the state for hospitality and seventh in construction respectively.
“HSC results are always exciting. It’s the culmination for most of our students of a significant amount of hard work and study,” said Avondale’s Secondary School head Mr Benton Craig. “Huge congratulations to our HSC class of 2015! They have done well.”
Results for each state are still being released and we will update as we receive information.
