Marist College Kogarah’s 2015 HSC class of High Achievers returned to school to celebrate their outstanding results in a special awards ceremony on 12 February.
Local State Member Chris Minns, also a former student of the College, presented the awards the young men and congratulated them for achieving 90 per cent of courses that they studied above the state average.
Mr Minns told the students that he remembered his time at the College, fondly. He recounted how the values instilled during that time had prepared him to be a model citizen and to make a significant contribution to society.
Principal John Riordan told the assembly of boys that they should be proud of their achievements, particularly for a non-selective school.
“Over the past four years, the school has been the Archdiocese of Sydney’s top performing secondary boys’ school on three occasions,” Mr Riordan said.
“The boys should be all be very proud of themselves for outstanding performances once again.
“The College strives consistently to create an engaging learning environment which promotes student achievement. The range of subjects represented at today’s assembly is indicative of the success of this approach across the breadth of our wide curriculum.”
