CAPE Byron Steiner School students and staff are thrilled with the wonderful results achieved by their HSC students. Staff reported a notable strengthening of results across every subject with some outstanding results having been achieved across a number of subjects.
In a cohort of 25 students, 14 Band 6 results (over 90) and 61 Band 5 (over 80) results were recorded for the school. Students demonstrated outstanding results in drama, with eight out of 12 students receiving scores of over 90. This was not surprising, for a group which were selected for OnStage, 2016. Visual Art results were also extremely strong with two Band 6 results on top of three nominations to Art Express earlier this term. A number of students also received Band 6 results in English Extension 1 and 2, D and T and PDHPE, whilst an exceptional result of a 100% for English Extension 2 was achieved by student, Jasmine Pierce who was acknowledged for her poetry submission.
Most satisfying, says principal, Nerrida Johnson, is how many students achieved a Band 5 across all subjects, as this demonstrates a strong cohort and excellent teaching and learning throughout the school, from K- 12 she says.
"I am deeply proud of all our HSC students. Their results show an overall commitment to study and inspired learning. I imagine some happy faces around the shire this week!" She said. "I'd also like to thank our dedicated staff and committed parents for helping guide these beautiful souls through their education. Steiner Education prepares students for the rigours of the HSC by cultivating academic excellence through a balance of academic studies, artistic achievements and practical learning."
Nerrida and deputy principal Katie would like to congratulate all of the Cape Byron 2016 cohort for their achievements.
