Gal­ston High School Goes from Strength to Strength

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Front Page -

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the Prin­ci­pal, Teach­ers and staff at Gal­ston High School for re­ceiv­ing yet an­other ac­co­lade from the Depart­ment of Ed­u­ca­tion. Their 2017 NAPLAN re­sults show Gal­ston High School as one of the 'most sub­stan­tially im­proved schools in the state in 2017'.

This fol­lows on from their re­mark­able HSC re­sults where they were named by the Syd­ney Morn­ing Her­ald in the top ten "big­gest im­provers in the HSC' for 2 con­sec­u­tive years".

In the 2017 HSC re­sults Chloe SkewesWeir achieved a per­fect score in English Ex­ten­sion 2, rank­ing her amongst the top 20 stu­dents in the state.

In the Ad­vanced, Ex­ten­sion 1 and Ex­ten­sion 2 English cour­ses Gal­ston High ranked 11th in the state and is the top per­form­ing non-se­lec­tive com­pre­hen­sive, co­ed­u­ca­tional high school.

Kianna Munro won the Min­is­ters Award for Ex­cel­lence in Stu­dent Achieve­ment. She also won the Vice-Chan­cel­lors lead­er­ship Schol­ar­ship at Western Syd­ney Univer­sity worth $40,000. The most pres­ti­gious of all schol­ar­ships at this univer­sity.

Matthew Moody had his In­dus­trial Tech­nol­ogy Ma­jor Work se­lected for ex­hi­bi­tion at the Tim­ber and Wood­work­ing Show.

Zac Daniel was awarded the John Lin­coln Memo­rial Medal as part of the Or­der of Aus­tralia hon­ours for his out­stand­ing work in the com­mu­nity.

As men­tioned in the Min­is­ter's re­cent let­ter, "the daily en­ergy and re­solve to im­prove qual­ity prac­tice, cater in­di­vid­u­ally for stu­dent learn­ing needs and in­spire stu­dent ex­cel­lence, is de­serv­ing of par­tic­u­lar com­men­da­tion. Your lead­er­ship as Prin­ci­pal is also driv­ing im­pres­sive high stan­dards as you cul­ti­vate a de­ter­mined whole school com­mit­ment for stronger per­for­mance."

Well done to Prin­ci­pal Jil­lian Tourlas, her deputies Lisa Pieper and Ju­lia Petrulis and all their teach­ers and staff. You are do­ing a fan­tas­tic job!
