College makes HSC top 100 list
ST BISHOY Coptic Orthodox College in Mt Druitt has made the HSC top 100 schools list for the first time.
St Bishoy was the only school in the Mt Druitt area featured on the 2015 list, taking out the 91st spot.
Principal Michael Atteya said the school wasn’t ex- pecting such a high result.
“It is amazing. We knew we were going to do well, but it is difficult to feature on that list,” Mr Atteya said.
Mr Atteya said the achievement was a credit to both the students and teachers.
“Our teachers worked in- credibly hard. They were giving constant feedback and were even helping out after school – they went above and beyond,” he said.
“Even our students attended school almost every day during the school holidays to do intensive study courses”.
Mr Atteya congratulated all the Year 12 students, but particularly praised school captain David Beshay.
“David is a new migrant with English as his second language,” Mr Atteya said.
“He is a dedicated student and achieved an outstanding ATAR of 94.5.
