Col­lege makes HSC top 100 list

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

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.
