School notes great marks

ST JOHNS Park High School recognised their high achievers last week at a school assembly.

Twenty-seven students received a band 6, a score of 90 or more, in the HSC last year.

Socheata Khuon from Canley Heights came first in the state for Khmer language studies and received an overall ATAR of 98.25.

The 19-year-old said she was proud of her achievement.

"My school is really supportive and it wasn't stressful at all for me," she said.

"I had good time management and I actually started studying two months before the HSC.

"I didn't put in all that much effort but I knew where to start and what to prioritise and I paid attention in class."

Former school captain Dean El-Mouslimani from Prairiewood received an ATAR of 83.15.

Mr El-Mouslimani said he was grateful his principal supported him and the other students during his HSC studies.

"We would meet on a regular basis with our principal and she made sure being school captain wasn't too much of a burden for us," the 18-year-old said.

"We also had a whole school representative council, so we could allocate a lot of the heavy or intensive jobs to them.

Mr El-Mouslimani said he would advise other HSC students to use their time wisely in the classroom.

"I found that if you understand what is happening in class, then it is easier to revise and study later on," he said.

"Also, try to get a good sleep and don't be nervous. There are always other pathways to get into university."
