Roseville College announces Year 12 graduate Claire Chen as its 2017 HSC Dux for achieving 99.7 in the recent HSC examinations, which also saw Roseville College rank 25th in NSW.

Principal, Ms Deb Magill, says she is delighted with the results which reflect an outstanding and personal best effort by such a large proportion of the Class of 2017, with three students awarded Premier’s All Round Achievers Awards: Claire Chen, Remi Krenkels and Natasha Turner-Cohen.

“I am delighted that, as a cohort, this year group has achieved a rank of 25th in NSW, which is a tremendous improvement for the School this year. As a non-selective school, results like these demonstrate how Roseville College’s culture of excellence in learning does inspire each girl to achieve her best.”

Ms Magill listed the HSC Highlights to include more than a third of exams taken by Roseville College students achieving a mark of 90 or more, and more than two thirds of students achieving at least one Band 6 score (of 90 or more).

“Outcomes like these are in reward for hard work and commitment by the students,” adds Ms Magill. However, she believes that the love and support of parents and families of HSC candidates shouldn’t be overlooked. “There is always a team of family, friends, teaching professionals and academic leaders who deserve congratulations, too.”

Claire is thrilled to be named HSC Dux for Roseville College, saying it opens the door to study at Sydney University in a double degree of Law and Commerce. However, like her fellow Premier’s All Round Achiever, Remi Krenkels, Claire agrees that the ATAR itself isn’t an excuse to stop working hard.

“No matter what your mark is, everyone should keep working hard and chasing what’s important to them. This may mean alternative pathways for some, so – for the girls from Roseville College – we will keep loving and respecting one another – asking how we can help each other achieve our goals,” Claire says.

For Claire and Remi, who are celebrating today, the quality that they will miss about student life at Roseville College is the nurturing staff and peers, who are part of a true culture of really caring for one another. “Roseville College really is like a family – a tight-knit community,” they agree. “... and we will always be Roseville girls.”
