2019 HSC Report

With Year 12 about to start their final term of school, and in line with our current desire to encourage one another with stories of perseverance, we wanted to share with you the HSC results of the graduating class of 2019. We had planned on sharing this news with you earlier in the year, but with all the change and difficulty that COVID-19 has brought, we wanted to do so sensitively and at an appropriate time.

Covenant would like to congratulate the graduating class of 2019 on their HSC results. Our school ranked 127 out of approximately 650 schools, with 29 students attaining the HSC Distinguished Achievers List. 61 grades were awarded Band 6 or equivalent, and five major works were selected for exhibition.

We would especially like to acknowledge our highest achiever, Harry Kelly (middle, above), on his tremendous result of 99.15. Harry was placed on the All Round Achiever’s List for achieving 90 or higher in his best ten units. He is to be commended on his hard work and dedication.

Harry started his journey at Covenant in Kindergarten. He is a second generation Covenant alumni, with his mum, Suzie, having also attended Covenant. It was Suzie’s mum who encouraged her to consider Covenant for her children. Harry is now the second of four Kelly children to have graduated. Suzie and her husband, Chris, are thankful for the way in which Covenant has spiritually sheltered their children. They consider Covenant to be a place where authentic Christianity exists – both amongst the school community and in the classroom. 

We invited Harry to return to school to congratulate him on his exceptional HSC results, and to ask if he had any advice for our current Year 12 students. The first thing we noticed about Harry was his humility; he is obviously bright and gifted, but also thoughtfully spoken. Harry encouraged Year 12 not to put a limit on what they can achieve. His mindset during Year 12 was “I can achieve any mark as long as I put the work in.” To that end, Harry worked with diligence and determination, made good choices, and was encouraged and supported by his teachers. Harry spoke very fondly about several of his teachers, and in particular how they looked out for him, and particularly his faith, during Year 12. 

Harry is now studying a degree in Actuarial Studies, a course suggested by our Careers Advisor, in line with his giftings and abilities. He is also tutoring in mathematics, surfing and serving the youth at Christ Church Northern Beaches.

Harry’s parents, Chris and Suzie, also had some encouragement for the parents of our Year 12 students. They encouraged parents to pray – for your child, for their year group as a whole, and for their teachers. They also suggested that it is important to remind your child of the following:

  • Don’t compare yourself to other students.
  • Don’t overthink things.
  • The HSC doesn’t define who you are – only God can do that.
  • Stay connected to your community – school, church, sport, friends.
  • Micah 6:8 “And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

We are thankful to the Kelly’s for these wonderful encouragements, for whilst they aren’t new for us at Covenant, they are so important for us to remember. Thank you to Chris, Suzie and Harry for your wisdom, and again congratulations to Harry!
