Member for Hawkesbury congratulated local students on their HSC results, released today.
Mr Perrottet said that students should feel very proud of their achievements.
“The HSC is a rigorous and demanding credential with a world-class reputation that prepares our students for life beyond school,” Mr Perrottet said.
“I wish all students the very best in their future endeavours, whether they are planning to head to university, vocational education or to join the workforce.
“A number of students in Hawkesbury are among the distinguished achievers in this year’s HSC.
“77,000 students sat at least one HSC subject this year, so to be on the distinguished achievers list is an incredible achievement that students should be very proud of.
“For those students who didn’t get the results they hoped for, there are other options available.”
Among this year’s HSC results:
A record 55,961 students are eligible for university entry;
1,619 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, the highest ever, achieved their HSC; and
A record 37,781 top band results awarded to students.
Students can download their certificate and other HSC credentials from 21 December. HSC certificates will arrive by post from 20 January 2017.
