Parkes Christian School is celebrating its most successful HSC results to date. In just the fourth year of delivering the
HSC, the school is very proud of the results achieved by their 2018 cohort. Students achieved Band 5 and 6 results in Advanced and Extension English, Biology, Business Studies, Community and Family Studies, Design and Technology, Modern History and German Continuers.
Emma Greenland capped off a year to remember when she received her ATAR of 90.95 last Friday. Emma, named High School Dux and Best All-Rounder at the school’s Presentation Night, received a Band 6 in Community and Family Studies, and Biology. She also achieved Band 5 in Modern History and German Continuers, and Advanced English, which she completed as an accelerated student in 2017. Emma will be able to gain direct entry into a Speech Pathology Course in Sydney next year.
Elly Collins also achieved outstanding results in Design and Technology and English Extension 1, in which she received 40/50 in an extremely demanding and academic course. Elly will undertake an Occupational Therapy degree in Port Macquarie, which she had already gained entry to through the Schools Recommendation Scheme.
Madelynne Capple achieved a Band 5 in Business Studies and will enter the International College of Management on Sydney’s Northern Beaches in 2019.
High School Coordinator Greg Ballantyne was thrilled with the results. “Every student who applied for early entry to university received an offer, maintaining our 100% record over the past four years. We are really pleased for Emma, but the rest of the group have also done extremely well and have bright futures ahead of them.”
“I’m most pleased that every student seemed to be very happy throughout their HSC, enjoyed being at school, had time to pursue other interests and hobbies, and learned a lot about being people of good character and integrity. These are the things that will stay with them throughout their lives.”
