Last Thursday the students from the Canowindra High School class of 2017 and their teachers welcomed the release of the Higher School Certificate results and Merit List for Distinguished Achievers. The much awaited results were received with a range of emotions for the twenty five students who successfully studied and completed their HSC across twenty-one courses.
The best performance for the school was recorded in Design and Technology by Amelia Holmes who received a band 6 placing her in the top 11.3% of the state and on the Merit list for Distinguished Achievers. In addition to her band 6 Amelia also achieved an E3 in Mathematics Extension and band 5’s in her other subjects.
In comparison to student performance across the state the other subjects where students performed extremely well were Agriculture, Chemistry, English Standard, Industrial Technology, Mathematics General 2, Mathematics and Senior Science.
Overall the school was very happy with the very solid results which complimented the student’s previous success in being recognised with major awards at the school’s Annual Presentation Night and gaining early entry to a range of universities. Across all subjects many of the students achieved their personal best and are to be congratulated for their commitment and hard work.
On an individual level, Adelaide Ellis achieved all band 5’s whilst Brooke Kinsela, Cooper Watson, Joanna Balcombe, Ciaran Etty, Kristie Springall and Sophie Tremain all achieved multiple band 5’s and 4’s.
The students are all to be commended on their performance and on behalf of our school community I wish them the very best in achieving their goals throughout the future.
