Jessica and Tama the Premier's All-Rounders
Having spent the past 12 months in friendly competition with one another, these two classmates and good friends have proven that hard work never killed anyone – in fact, it can get you quite a long way.
Receiving more than 90 in every single one of their seven subjects, Jessica and Tama both earned themselves place on the list to be honoured with Premier's 'All-Rounder' award, awarded to students across the state who achieve a Band 6 grading in every one of their subjects.
“Basically coming into Year 12, I just wanted to see how well I could do. I was always hoping to do well, but you never actually know,” Jessica said.
“I was aiming to get above 90, so I could keep my options open. I'm just thrilled,” Tama said.
To say both girls have successfully reached their goals would be an understatement – both are now looking forward to heading to the University of Sydney; Tama to study architecture and Jessica to study media and communications.
Coffs Harbour Senior College Principal, Peter Cameron, said he couldn't be prouder.
“I think it's a real team effort between the parents, teachers and the students. These girls have put in a tremendous effort and have an amazing attitude – talk about high quality,” he said.
Today students will receive their Universities Admission Index (UAI) ranking.
