On Thursday 20th January, the 2021 NSW Higher School Certificate results were released to students and parents.
Our Class of 2021 achieved outstanding results in their Higher School Certificate, making Loreto Kirribilli the top-performing Catholic School in New South Wales, placed 21st in the state in the Sydney Morning Herald state rankings.
We congratulate our Dux, Emily, who achieved an ATAR of 99.75. Eight students achieved an ATAR of 99 and above, with 32% of students achieving an ATAR above 95. Fifteen students were named on the NSW HSC All Round Achievers list with ten units or more with a Band 6 or E4 result.
We also congratulate Year 11 Maths accelerant student, Lydia, who achieved equal First in Course in Mathematics Advanced, and Visual Arts student, Marielle, who placed 8th in the state for her artistic endeavours.
Principal Mrs Anna Dickinson praised the Year 12 cohort for their determination, effort and application, as well as their grit and grace through testing times. “The results also reflect the efforts of our remarkable teachers, who have supported, mentored and suitably challenged each and every student during her learning journey”, added Mrs Dickinson.
Mrs Dickinson also reflected on the Loreto tradition embedded in our school community, and the vision of our pioneering Loreto women. “In 1908, Mother Gonzaga Barry said, ‘What the world needs is wise, loving, well-educated women’. Centuries earlier, Mary Ward said, ‘women in time to come will do much’. That time is now!
“Our young women have demonstrated that this is no longer an aspiration, they are indeed ‘doing much’ and we congratulate them for their outstanding achievements. We wish them felicity as they continue to explore their wonderful lives beyond Loreto Kirribilli.”
