It is a great pleasure to see the Year 12 boys waiting with nervous excitement for the start of each exam. This nervous excitement means they have prepared themselves well. It’s good to remember that life continues beyond the HSC. The sun comes out again each day, and that we have a new start. The marks and the ATAR are important, however, the virtues and the character developed and forged in the preparation and execution of academic rigour are life-changing and are with us forever.
