UAIs are out, Grafton High claims a Wynn
FORMER Year 12 students throughout the Clarence Valley were yesterday eagerly comparing numbers to discover just how well they had done in this year's HSC.
With the release of their UAI scores, which are used by universities to determine whether students are eligible for courses, it capped a nervous wait for pupils.
Grafton High School's Robyn Wynn was one happy student after she topped the Valley with a UAI of 98.5.
Other GHS students to do well were Shilpa Dougall who scored 94.3, and Emeral Rode with 90.1.
GHS principal Colin Lang said the school was very happy for the students.
"We are very proud of what the kids have done this year," he said.
Maclean High School also did well, with Dux Nici Elmes scoring 98, Siobhan Fitzpatrick 93.35, Alisha Bridge 91.5 and Rebecca Pryor 90.1.
"This group of Year 12s were one of the best groups of kids we've had for a number of years through the school," MHS principal Glenn Brown said.
McAuley Catholic College dux Jamie Kennedy scored 96.8, while Jessica Dougherty had a UAI of 96.4.
Other McAuley students with UAIs in the 90s were Megan Brien, Clare Brotherson and James McGinnes.
McAuley principal Gerry Crooks said all students could be proud of their efforts.
"The College is extremely pleased with the overall results and congratulates all students for their outstanding contribution to the College over the years they have been here," he said.
The Cathedral School principal, Reverend Chris Ivey, said the school's top performer, Caitlin Munday with a UAI of 86, was just one of their fine performing students.
"We were very happy because all our students achieved better than they hoped to do which is all we can hope for," he said.
St Andrew's Christian Community College and South Grafton High could not be reached for de- tails.
