Roseville College Year 11 student Sarah Leatherbarrow has received a Sydney University Academic Excellence Award for achievement sin her Year 10 examinations.

Sarah is among a select cohort of students from across NSW to receive the Academic Excellence award, which is part of a scheme initiated by the University to acknowledge and encourage academic diligence.

Schools with significant links to the University are invited to nominate a deserving candidate from their most recent Year 10 cohort. These nominations are then considered against eligibility for the award. The awards allow the University to search for future, talented students and inspire them to consider graduate studies at the University post-school.

"Roseville College has a long standing, positive relationship with the University of Sydney, which consistently tops student preferences for post-school study," says Principal Ms Deb Magill. "I am delighted that Sarah's diligence has been rewarded in this way. I expect it will motivate her to a higher level of achievement as she focusses on her HSC."

Sarah received her certificate at an official presentation ceremony at the University of Sydney on 4 April.

Roseville College ranks among NSW's best in HSC achievement. Many Roseville College students and Year 12 graduates perform strongly in their school and post-schooling pursuits, including scholarships for higher education learning, as well as local awards for academic, music and performing arts, sports and community achievement.
