HSC: Taree High celebrates achievers at all levels

TAREE High is celebrating some outstanding results from this year's Higher School Certificate.

As of yesterday, careers adviser Glen Bowman said some of the highest ATARs (Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank) received by students included 97.5 for Joshua Echano, 94.5 for Patrick Abraham and 92.15 for Hannah Oreo.

Joshua and St Clare's student Luke Jirman, who also scored an ATAR of 97.5, appear to be the top Manning students.

Another student, Esther Christian, was projected to receive an ATAR in the 90s but is currently in Denmark and her result unknown.

"We had a lot of kids floating around the 80s, and a lot getting the cut off they need for the university courses they want to get into."

Glen said there were kids who received ATARs in the 70s who will be the first in their families to be heading to university, which was a great achievement.

Some of the students had already gained early admission into university and he said the release of the results this week was purely academic.
