Outstanding HSC results for Chev students
Chevalier College congratulates the Class of 2016 on their outstanding performances in the Higher School Certificate and the extraordinary number of high ATARs achieved by these wonderful young graduates of our College.
Two of our students were awarded the distinction of ‘All-Rounder’, indicating the highest level of achievement in ten or more units. Harry Fenton achieved Band 6 in Ancient History, English Advanced, Legal Studies, Modern History, History Extension and Studies of Religion I; while Bridget Shirlow achieved Band 6 in Biology, English Advanced, Modern History, Personal Development, Health and Physical Education, and Studies of Religion II.
Students from Chevalier College achieved 68 Band 6 performances, across a wide range of subjects.
The 34 students who scored these very high results were:
Brodie Ackroyd, Daniel Aebi, Hudson Alexander, Nathan Atkinson, Nicholas Bermingham, Olivia Berry, Jerome Blazé, Gerard Boyd, Madeline Brennan, India Brown, Gabrielle Butcher, Annabelle Devitt, Richard Duff, Ruby Evans, Richard (Harry) Fenton, Kathleen Fitzpatrick, Ava Gorga, Dylan Graham, Isabella Hillyer, Patrick Holman, Victoria James, Magill Lee, Lillyana Lema, Helen Lenane, Megan O’Hea, Harley Paul, Erin Reedie, Jessica Semken, Matilda Sheridan, Bridget Shirlow, Lucy Stein, Emily Su, Tyla Venish, Connor Walsh.
The College’s academic performance continues to improve, with notable achievement by Maths students, who recorded 13 Band 6 results. The History faculty was well above the state average in all three courses offered, and our Drama students continued to perform at the highest level.
While we are not provided with ATARs by the University Admissions Centre, we have received information from a large number of our students and it would appear that at least 25, and possibly as many as 40, students have received ATARs over 80. From the information we have at this time, we are able to acknowledge 13 students with ATARs over 90 and some of the known results from students who gained 80+. We look forward to confirming and sharing more outstanding results as they come to hand.
|Among our top ATAR students (known to date) are:|
|Richard (Harry) Fenton||98.55|
|Nadya Van Kruyssen||80.08|
Chevalier is proud of its academic reputation, and as one of only two Catholic high schools between Narellan and Goulburn, we welcome students of all interests and aptitudes who want to be part of our community. We also recognise the achievements of the many students who chose to complete one or more vocational education HSC courses through the College’s Trades Skills Centre and Hospitality Facility. Ten students completed Sports Coaching, eight students completed Primary Industries, 15 students completed Hospitality and 14 students completed Construction. Chevalier continues to offer a broad but rigorous curriculum to students of all abilities and we take pride in their achievements.
Many of our wonderful young people gathered at Chev for a celebratory morning tea on Friday 16 December and we thank them for all they have been to our College community. We look forward to welcoming them back to the College for our high achievers celebration and morning tea on Monday 6 February; and we send them out into the world in the spirit of Father Chevalier, so that they can truly ‘be on earth the heart of God’.
