Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP, recently held a morning tea to celebrate the hard work and dedication of Mulgoa’s best and brightest – the 2022 Higher School Certificate (HSC) distinguished achievers.

“To attain an HSC mark of 90 or above in a course of study is an outstanding achievement that demonstrates an incredible work ethic and commitment to study,” Tanya Davies said.

131 students in schools across the Mulgoa electorate achieved the status of distinguished achiever, according to the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA).

The schools that produced distinguished achievers include Al-Faisal College, Caroline Chisholm College, Cecil Hills High School, Christadelphian Heritage College Sydney, Emmaus Catholic College, Erskine Park High School, Glenmore Park High School, Irfan College, Mamre Anglican School, Nepean Christian School, Penrith Anglican College, St Narsai Assyrian Christian College and Thomas Hassall Anglican College.

“With over 131 students attaining distinguished achiever status, I would like to acknowledge the dedication and input of teachers, parents and carers that assisted these students,” said Tanya Davies.

The principals, staff and teachers of those schools should feel incredibly proud of not only their students but also themselves. Tanya Davies said she cannot imagine the challenges these students have endured over the past two years with the implementing online learning in the face of lockdowns.

“I am confident that as learners they will achieve and accomplish much if they continue to persist in working hard and striving to reach their goals.”
At the morning tea, Mrs Davies had the privilege of engaging with the students, offering her support for all their endeavours and encouraging them to seize every opportunity presented to them.
