Students and staff alike are thrilled with the HSC results to come out of Macarthur Anglican School this year.
Headmaster Dr David Nockles said the results were indicative of the school’s academic excellence.
“These outstanding results reflect Macarthur’s strong academic culture in which the strengths of all students are optimised,” he said.
“Students are encouraged to have a positive growth mindset, be agile thinkers and consistently work to improve their personal best.
“Importantly, these outstanding results mean that our students will be empowered to pursue their chosen field of study beyond school with a significant proportion choosing to study at a tertiary institution.”
