Another cohort of Year 12 students has achieved wonderful results in the HSC. The students bring great credit to themselves, their families and the school and testimony to both their talents and hard work and in no small part to the professionalism and commitment of their teachers.

In summary, Killara HSC students 2007 achieved 207 Band 6 results (Band 6 is the highest band with scores over 90). Together with these strong Band 6 results, the number of Band 5 results awarded to our students in all courses was particularly high this year. This translates into 30% of the group obtaining a UAI (University Admissions Index) of 90 or above with over half of the students receiving a UAI of above 80, ie, in the top 20% of the state. These statistics mirror those from over the past few years making consistency of academic excellence one of the hallmarks of our great school.

Three students qualified to receive the Premier’s Award by scoring over 90 in 10 units of their HSC courses. They were Jason Hwang, Lisa McGrory and Kaishin Tanaka. These students obtained a UAI in excess of 99. Jason Hwang with a UAI of 99.80 was dux of Year 12 2007 and will be so honoured at the Annual Awards Ceremony later this year.

Of the 47 HSC courses studied by HSC students at Killara High School in 2007, student achievement in 37 were above the state mean. In 19 courses results were more than 5 points above the state mean while in 6 courses results were more than 10 points above the state mean.

Approximately 72% of our students obtained a university place in the 1st round offers in a wide range of courses with some choosing courses that did not ‘use up’ their UAI but were in their area of preferred study. Favoured courses for 2008 include commerce and business, science, arts, engineering, design, law and pleasingly, teaching.

As a comprehensive high school it is not surprising that a number of students elect to not receive a UAI but have gained entry to a range of high demand TAFE courses.

Killara High School students, in all years, receive a quality education that produces outcomes for all levels of ability. The school is justly proud of its 2007 Year 12 cohort’s achievements and wishes them well in their future lives.
