Student, Nicola Ellis had her artwork chosen for consideration of ARTEXPRESS 2017. Quite a few of the Year 12 graduates have also found full time employment and apprenticeships already and one student accepteda full time job as a Graphic Industrial Designer the day after his last exam.

Southern Cross Distance Education (SCDE) students also performed well throughout their HSC, with a record number of 33 students having achieved a Higher School certificate this year, the highest number yet through Distance.
