Roseville College Year 11 students, Natalie Klug and Justine Huang, are among 50 students across NSW who received Academic Excellence Awards from University of Sydney for achievements in their 2011 Year 10 examinations.
The Award scheme, initiated by the University to acknowledge and encourage academic diligence in NSW students, enables schools that have significant links with the University of Sydney to nominate a worthy candidate from their recent Year 10 cohort.
“Roseville College was offered a nomination in 2011; but it was simply too difficult to discern between two outstanding students, Natalie and Justine,” says the College’s Director of Curriculum, Mrs Georgia Kamperos.
“It is a great honour for the College – and for the girls involved – to receive news that both candidates would receive the Academic Excellence Awards for 2010. I don’t think that has happened for any school before.”
Accompanied by teacher, Mrs Karen Warburton, Natalie and Justine each received a certificate and a $50 Dymocks gift voucher at the official presentation ceremony at the University of Sydney on 2 May.
“All parents and teaching staff present at the ceremony were clearly very proud of the recipients,” Mrs Warburton says. “It is priceless to see the smiles of each high achiever who are thrilled that their hard work has been recognised at this level. I’m sure it motivates them as they now apply their attention to the HSC.”
Many Roseville College graduates continue to perform strongly in their post-schooling pursuits, including higher education scholarships for sporting and academic excellence, and awards for academic and community achievement.
