On Friday 5 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 2020. At the Assembly, we welcomed back the Graduates of the HSC Class of 2020 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 30 students or 20% 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 Anthony Sukkar who is College Dux for 2020 having achieved an ATAR of 98.60 and Lemuel Fernandez as Proxime Accessit with an ATAR of 98.15. This year we are proud to announce we had thirteen students who achieved an ATAR above 95. In addition, two students were placed on the State’s All-Round Achievers’ List and two students were placed on the Top Achievers’ List for highest rankings in the State.
Adding to the gravitas of the occasion was the unveiling of the College Band’s new Uniform, which our musicians wore with pride. Their rousing rendition of ‘Mekong’ was a farewell salute to Mr Rose.
All assembled also congratulated our Year 11 recipients of the 2021 Br McGlade Scholarships: James Hraiki, Alexander Turner-Jensen and Francis Ters.
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.
