Release Date: 20-Dec-2016 | Go Back
Class of 2016 graduate, Ilana Bolinowsky, has ranked 1st in NSW in Food Technology, with peers, Vice-Captain Lauren Caush, Prefect Melissa Woodley, Zoe King and Sonia Stratton distinguished as All-Round Achievers, earning a result in the highest band in 10 or more units of courses in their current pattern of study.
The non-selective Anglican school also performed strongly on the Distinguished Achievers List, including 1st in State awarded to Ilana Bolinowsky for Food Technology. Tarryn Myburgh (Earth and Environmental Studies) and Brittany Carpenter (French Extension) ranked in NSW’s Top 35, and Melissa Woodley (Food Technology) and Lauren Caush (PDHPE) ranked in the State’s Top 50.
Sonia Stratton earned one of the College’s strongest ATAR scores and, like many, will be celebrating her result with family and friends over the coming days; yet she was mindful of how others may receive their results this week.
'At the end of the day, the ATAR is a rank with a purpose. If you didn't get the score you hoped or worked for, it still comes with an opportunity. For example; there is a chance to reevaluate what you really want by reflecting on your expectations and the doors now open to you. There's also a chance to remember what is really important to you and what you really want to do with your future, and make necessary changes now,' she says encouragingly.
2016 Principal, Mrs Megan Krimmer*, says she is very proud of this Year 12 group, adding that she wishes them well in their future pursuits. 'The HSC is a rigorous, intensive experience for anyone intent on embracing the examinations as a challenge and an opportunity," she says. It is with great pride and pleasure that I wish this group the College’s best wishes as they move into new areas of academic study and and self-discovery in 2017. I am very confident that the Class of 2016 will make a very positive impact on the world in the future."
* Mrs Krimmer is succeeded as Principal of Roseville College by Ms Deb Magill, commencing 1 January 2017.
