Year 12 students from Coonabarabran High School have embarked on the next chapter of their lives following the end of Higher School Certificate (HSC) examinations.
Two students sat the final Visual Arts exam on Wednesday, 4 November, rounding out the month-long HSC schedule.
Locally, 44 students sat 33 exams, ranging from ancient history to agriculture, chemistry to community and family studies, and English to electrotechnology.
Most papers received positive reviews from students, who felt well-prepared and well-supported for the final step in their formal education.
Coonabarabran High is regarded for its strong HSC results, a testament to the motivation of students and dedication of staff.
As well as running an extensive holiday study program, the school has been successful in gaining State Government funding for a senior study coordinator through the NORTA NORTA program.
Phil Draper has taken on this position in 2015, and brings with him a wealth of experience and invaluable study techniques.
A number of staff also undertake HSC marking each year, which, in turn, helps to support students.
HSC results will be announced on Wednesday, 16 December, while prospective university students will be eagerly awaiting their Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) the following day.
