Narromine’s Abram Liddell has been recognised at a ceremony in Sydney after finishing top of his class in the 2021 Higher School Certificate.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said the St Johns College Dubbo graduate has now topped the NSW HSC Electrotechnology Examination.
“Abram spent his childhood helping with electrical jobs, and his decision to study electrotechnology through TAFE NSW has clearly paid off!” Mr Saunders said.
“Abram considered going to uni and becoming a pilot, but instead he thought “there’s always going to be electrical work”, and has already started an apprenticeship with Dubbo surveillance and security firm Simtec.
“The team at Simtec could tell Abram was a bright spark and snapped him up. It’s fantastic to see his talent is able to be nurtured locally.
“It’s also great to see outstanding young people like Abram choosing a trade and I’m sure it won’t be long before he’s a leader in his field.”
HSC results will be delivered by SMS and email from 6am on Thursday 20 January 2022, with merit lists published on the NESA website from midday on 20 January. Students will receive their ATAR at 9am on the same day.
“I want to congratulate every single student who completed their schooling in 2021, showing incredible resilience during a challenging couple of years which will certainly hold them in good stead for whatever the future may bring,” Mr Saunders said.
“Thank you to all of the experienced and dedicated teachers across the Dubbo electorate who, along with family and friends, have supported and encouraged these young people to achieve their best in a year like no other.”
