Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders has congratulated the HSC class of 2020 after the release of results on Friday.
More than 69,000 students completed their Year 12 studies this year, and Mr Saunders said students studying the HSC in 2020 have succeeded during a challenging year experiencing bushfires, drought and a global pandemic.
“In a normal year finishing your HSC is an outstanding achievement, and to do so in a year like 2020, is a credit to the dedication and talent of the students, their families and their school communities,” Mr Saunders said.
“While everyone has done a great job to reach this far, there have been some wonderful results from our region and those students also deserve a high level of praise.”
