133 Hunter-Manning Catholic school students rank on distinguished achievers list in this year’s HSC

With three students achieving top state rankings and another 130 students achieving one or more Band 6 results (between 90-100 for their course), the hard work and commitment to this year’s Higher School Certificate has delivered great results.

That’s according to Director of Schools, Dr Michael Slattery, who says these results reflect both the hard work of all 130 students and the dedicated senior school teachers who assisted and coached students this year. 

“While it is great to highlight the efforts of the top achievers, all of our students should be very proud of their efforts this year.

“HSC is a stepping stone for all of them and many bright futures that await,” Dr Slattery said.

“Our aim at Catholic schools is to form students as young men and women who will then go on to make an active, worthwhile contribution to the world in which they live. I would also like to thank the parents who have trusted our teachers to inspire confidence in their children and facilitate opportunities to see them thrive during their time at our schools but also in the years ahead.”
