The Wagga Wagga High School staff, students and community would like to congratulate our graduating class of 2021.
Wagga High is proud of all your efforts throughout your time at the high school on the hill.
We hope you remember all the opportunities you have had, the friends you have made and the experiences you have enjoyed.
We all look forward to seeing and reading about your successes in the years to come.
Your achievements in all aspects of life have been exceptional, but what we will remember most is your willingness to have a go.
This has and will continue to impact our students in the years to come.
Keeping this positive attitude in the next chapter of your lives, will see you succeed and continue to be such positive members of our community.
We wish you all the best of luck in your future endeavours and thank you for what you have done over the past six years for Wagga Wagga High School.
Another year of outstanding HSC results at Wagga Christian College! What an achievement for the Class of 2021. Overjoyed with the news of achieving numerous Band 6s (over 90 per cent) and Band 5s (over 80 per cent) across a wide range of subjects, the students, their parents and teachers deserve our congratulations.
The key to student success in the senior years has been the establishment of a strong foundation of learning and discipline from which students grew a love for the subject, cradled in a close partnership between student, parent and teacher.
"The respectful relationship that grows between teachers and students in the senior years at the College establishes a trust that is central to students excelling at subjects which really engage them," said David Crick, Technology and Applied Studies coordinator.
Our students consistently do well in music because they love it.- Geoffrey Xeros, Wagga Christian College director of music
"The exceptional results in the 2021 HSC Design and Technology class were a result of students developing a belief in their own ability to achieve. The strategies that they learnt in the classroom had the added benefit of assisting them as they were faced with the uncertainty caused by the COVID crisis."
The 2021 HSC results reflect Wagga Christian College's strength across both academic and practical subject streams. Exceptional results in maths and science were balanced by the music students receiving Bands 5 and 6 almost exclusively, a pattern that is repeated in each graduating class at the Christian College.
"Our students consistently do well in music because they love it," said Geoffrey Xeros, director of Music. "The culture in the College is that music is fun and the students have the foundation of learning in specialised music programs from Year 2 upwards which allow them to confidently share their passion through performance."
Principal Phillip Wilson is so thankful for the connections between families and the College. "I am so proud to lead a staff team who are committed to growing and extending students, connecting with and responding to parents and showing Christ's love in action and words to the students," he said.
"The Class of 2021 demonstrated a humility in their learning and relationships which underpinned their strong leadership of the student body over the last 12 months. The College will continue to pray for their growth and desire to serve others in our community."
Congratulations to our HSC and International Baccalaureate students for their excellent results in the 2021 examinations.
TRAC's top performing HSC student, George Kirolus achieved an ATAR of 99.10. He excelled in all his subjects, achieving a band 6 in English Advanced, Mathematics Extension 2, Physics and Chemistry. He is planning to study Medicine.
Top performing International Baccalaureate (IB) students Abby Wood (ATAR 99.45) and Holly Wilson (ATAR 98.55) excelled in all their subject areas. Abby plans to go on and study Studying Sports Science, then Medicine and Holly plans to study Arts/Law at Melbourne University. In addition to their studies, George, Holly and Abby all held leadership positions throughout year 12.
From the cohort of 17 IB students, 60 per cent have achieved an ATAR above 90 and 94 per cent above 80. We are extremely proud of the year 12 students for their dedication and hard work over the past two years and thank the staff for introducing this world-class educational experience to our school and our region.
"Our IB and HSC students worked hard for their results which will give them deserved opportunities for next year," said Mr Geoff Marsh, principal of TRAC.
All students were supportive of each other and strove to do their best, while continuing to participate in the extra-curricular activities available. As a group, their leadership of the younger students was exemplary and the entire TRAC community wishes each former Year 12 student well for the future.
While most of Year 12 chose to study the HSC, 17 of our students studied and completed the International Baccalaureate Diploma. TRAC is excited to be the only regional school in NSW to offer both the HSC and IB.
The 2021 cohort is the perfect representation of how these two options complement each other and add to the richness of our learning programs.
Mount Austin High School would like to congratulate its College 2 students on their HSC results.
In the real world beyond the school gate you may start a trade, begin a university or TAFE course, or continue with a part time job.
Your grades reflect what you've already done in school, not what you're going to achieve next. Graduating senior college is an amazing achievement.
Staff would like to congratulate all students who achieved outstanding results and encourage everyone to continue their educational journey in life.
While the past two years were impacted by COVID, you have overcome this ordeal and can now move forward.
Good luck and best wishes for your future.
