Of course, great results measured against external benchmarks are important and worthy of celebration, but the wider story for all students is that our externally measured “value added” benchmarked results between Year 10 and Year 12 show the conversion of a variety of students’ academic results through the hard work of staff and a positive learning tone for students into expanded career and course options. The smiles on the faces of each of these students are no less broad.

“We have just received our boy’s results and I am enormously proud. You have to remember he was a little boy that could not sit still or read until Year 3. Academically he has struggled to maintain interest but he has worked very hard.  He is immensely happy”.

College Foundation Headmaster, Dr Stuart Quarmby was pleased with the results.

“They are a testament to the hard work of the students, the support of their parents and the many hours of extra time committed by staff in the creation of a unique Learning Culture at the College. What impresses me most, is the strength of character and the persistence that is embedded in this list of names which reminds those who know and care for them of their achievements Nationally and Internationally in endeavours such as Science, Music, Debating and Community Service. Of course, great results measured against external bench marks are important and worthy of celebration, but there were smiles all round from other students in Year 12 who gained results that represented stories of average academic track records being converted through the hard work of staff and their own endeavours into expanded career options. The smiles on the faces of each of these students are no less broad”

2015 HSC Results

Wollondilly Anglican College reaches new Academic Heights

The 2015 HSC results have been released and Wollondilly Anglican College has once again been listed in the prestigious top 200 schools in NSW/ACT. The College ranked 2 in the Campbelltown/Camden/Wollondilly Local Government Areas, with 29 Band 6 results from 41 students and 10 students listed on the Distinguished Achievers list.

Students at the College who achieved an ATAR over 90 included:

Laura Fleming ( Dux)              98.90
Samuel Gardiner                       96.20
Jasmin Law                                95.95
Samantha Vibert                       93.50
Thomas Croucher                      92.40

Other notable student achievements included Dayna Bruynius who ranked 1st in NSW for Early Childhood Studies and Samuel Harper who was nominated for the prestigious Encore – a showcase of outstanding performances from the HSC Music examinations.

College Headmaster, Dr Quarmby, said, “It is a remarkable achievement for a young comprehensive school and a real testament to the hard working students and staff who have worked together to create a positive learning culture where personal best is celebrated across a wide range of subject choices. We are even more thrilled with the character and drive of these young men and women and can ensure that the Shire is in good hands with these emerging leaders. There are many stories of students striving towards great achievements. For instance, Kye Madden and Ray Stone were both selected for the Australian Schoolboys’ Rugby League side this year. Kye managed an 85.3 ATAR whilst playing Rugby League for NSW and Australia”.

What advice would you give other students starting their HSC?

Laura Fleming – “Just get organised. Plan the things that you want to do and then plan College work around them – just make sure you spend three to four hours a day working hard. You will not be stressed if you do that.”

Samantha Vibert – “Keep doing the things you like. Stick with Sport if that is what you like. Prioritise working hard next.”

What has it been like to be a student at Wollondilly?

Thomas Croucher – “This is a great place and learning is the top priority. It is a friendly place too. People care about more than marks. I can’t thank the staff enough.”

Jasmine Law – “The staff have created a learning culture here. We have students who have excelled in Sport and in the Creative and Performing Arts, but in the end it is a College where learning is the priority for everyone. I had my mind set on studying law. That dream is now possible.”

Students recorded Band 6 results in a variety of courses but most College graduates are focused on University so it was pleasing that Wollondilly Anglican College ranked 54th in NSW/ACT for Mathematics and 111th for English.

Of course, great results measured against external benchmarks are important and worthy of celebration, but other students in Year 12 gained results that represented stories of average academic track records being converted through the hard work of staff and their own endeavours into expanded career options. The smiles on the faces of each of these students and parents were no less broad.

Under God’s hand, Wollondilly Anglican College continues to be among the fastest growing independent schools in Australia.  For further information or to arrange a College Tour, please contact our enrolments office on 4684 2722 or via email enrolments@wac.nsw.edu.au
