"Their positive attitudes, dedication and resilience have been truly inspirational.

"We are also incredibly grateful to our school community.

"We are immensely proud of all of our Year 11 students and are thrilled that they've received the grades they so richly deserve and are now able to progress onto the next stages of their education.

"We wish them the best of luck and look forward to seeing what they will achieve in future."
