St Patrick's College Strathfield

Celebrating Achievement


On Friday 7 February, following the Opening College Mass, the College held its annual High Achievers’ Assembly to acknowledge and celebrate the distinguished academic achievements of the HSC Class of 2019. At the Assembly, we welcomed back the Graduates of the HSC Class of 2019 who achieved an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) of 90 and above. Each was presented with their Academic Excellence Award for Distinguished Achievement in the State. In all, a total of 57 students or 33% of the cohort achieved an ATAR above 90 and these young men represent the top echelon of HSC candidates in the State.

In particular, we congratulate Christopher Farag who is College Dux for 2019 having achieved an ATAR of 99.70 and Joseph Haydamous as Proxime Accessit with an ATAR of 99.65. This year we are proud to announce we had ten students who achieved an ATAR above 99. In addition; thirteen students were placed on the State’s All Rounders’ List and nine students were placed on the Top Achievers’ List for highest rankings in the State in eleven subjects. The details of these outstanding student performances are detailed in this publication: 2019 HSC Results.

All assembled also congratulated Luke Philpotts and William Taylor as the successful recipients of the 2020 Br R J McDonald Teacher Scholarship and Year 11 students, Jonah Rogers and Harry Richardson who are recipients of the 2020 Br McGlade Scholarships.

These young men have done themselves, their class, their College and their families proud by their outstanding achievements. We share in their pride and congratulate each and every one of them for their hard work and determination in their academic pursuits.
