Catholic school students top the state in 15 HSC subjects


Catholic school students performed strongly in this year’s Higher School Certificate exams, with 15 students receiving First in Course awards for 15 subjects.

Catholic Schools NSW Chief Executive Officer Dallas McInerney said it was particularly satisfying to see students from regional and outer suburban Catholic schools among the top performers.

“Students from the full range of Catholic schools – urban and regional, systemic and congregational – ranked highly this year, showing Catholic schools perform well alongside government selective and high-fee independent schools,” Mr McInerney said.

“It’s especially pleasing to see students top the state from Catholic schools in Maitland, Menai, Wollongong, Ballina, Forbes, Varroville, Merrylands, Kingsgrove and Sutherland.

“It’s testimony to the outstanding efforts of all students, their teachers and their families.

“On behalf of the Catholic sector, I extend my congratulations to students in all school sectors for their outstanding efforts and achievements.”

Catholic schools NSW represents the state’s 595 Catholic schools and their 255,000 students.
