Mullumbimby High School HSC candidate Alex Con- nelly of Wilson's Creek was really, really happy with her results. "I put in a lot of hard work and it paid off," she said of her 98.5%. Alex is not the only one happy with HSC results from Mullumbimby High. Principal Toni Hughes said the school had once again continued its proud academic history with out- standing results achieved across a wide range of subjects. Mrs Hughes said excep- tional results were achieved in Society and Culture where seven of 16 students achieved above 90%, Drama, with all stu- dents over 80%, Music with seven of 16 students
above 80%, Advanced Eng- lish in which 50% of stu- dents were over 80%, Biol- ogy with 46% of students over 80% and Mathematics with seven students above 90%. Individual high scorers were Cassie Priestley, 96%, Sarah Mott 95% and Darcy Hamilton 95%, in Unit 2 Maths; Thea Boland and Jacqueline Quaine both scored 48 out of 50 in Ex- tension 2 English; Adam Szlezak scored 96% in In- dustrial Technology and Alex Connelly achieved 96% in Society and Cul- ture.
