“We are very proud of our class of 2020 who earned 29 Band 6 results and 104 Band 5 results as a product of their dedication and we are particularly proud of the virtues and character of these upstanding ladies and gentlemen. Results such as these are also a testament to the professionalism and dedication of our staff who were able to maintain a continuity of learning for our students during the challenges throughout the year.

At Wollondilly Anglican College, we celebrate excellence against externally measured benchmarks. Of equal importance to us is the measure of personal best and the extraordinary tales of our externally measured “value added” benchmarked results between Year 10 and Year 12 which attest to the hard work of staff and a positive learning tone for students who will now, as a result, enjoy expanded career and course options. There is both an academic and enduring character return on such a wise investment”. – Mr Ian Croger, Interim Headmaster.
