HSC Success for Redlands Class of 2018

Posted on December 17, 2018

The Redlands Class of 2018 have received their Higher School Certificate (HSC) results and it is clear their hard work and dedication to their studies has paid off.  

45 per cent (59 students) of Redlands students in the Class of 2018 undertook the HSC this year, while the rest of the cohort completed the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB). The HSC results were available on Thursday, 13 December and students received their impressive ATAR scores on Friday, 14 December. The IB results for the other 55 percent of the Class of 2018 will be released on 3 January next year.

Through the hard work of the Class of 2018’s HSC students, there has been significant success at the 90+, 95+ and 99+ ATAR levels.

The School and Community congratulate Redlands 2018 Dux of HSC, Arthur Allshire, who achieved an outstanding ATAR of 99.25, the highest HSC ATAR in the Class of 2018.

Congratulations also to Francesca Brown, Marcella East, Stella Everett, Charlotte Everingham, Montegah Grace, Emma Green, Georgina Joyce, Katherine Stuart and Jackson Wiebe who received an impressive number of Band 6 results and strong ATAR scores.

In total, 27 students were included on the HSC Honour Roll, which lists students for all-round achievement, best in course and all Band 6/E4 Results.

Redlands Principal, Dr Peter Lennox, said the Class of 2018 should be extremely pleased with their HSC results, and that the Staff and Community of Redlands are proud of them and their exceptional efforts.

“The Class of 2018 demonstrated exceptional dedication to their studies throughout the year. I have been impressed by their ability to maintain a positive work ethic and contribute actively to our School,” Dr Lennox said.

“We congratulate Arthur and each one of our students who have been well rewarded across the board for their efforts.”
