Building on a legacy of shaping well-rounded graduates, Loreto Normanhurst is today recognising the diverse achievements of the Class of 2022. In a cohort of 158 HSC students, over 250 early entry University offers were received prior to this morning’s HSC results release. The number of early entry offers equates to over 1.5 university offers received per student.
With a learning model built on the emphasis of developing robust and authentic relationships, Loreto Normanhurst’s students’ interest in human-centred careers was showcased across the breadth of early entry university offers.
Loreto Normanhurst Director of Learning, Ms Kieryn Bateman, proudly celebrates the achievements of the 2022 HSC cohort. Speaking to the significant number of early entry offers and the importance of Universities recognising skills and capabilities outside of pure academics, she said:
“The class of 2022 had to overcome some tremendous obstacles in the lead-up to their HSC year. This included navigating two years of online learning, drawing on their well-honed skills for independent learning to ensure that they remained engaged and motivated during multiple lockdowns. As a cohort, they were able to draw on these experiences to harness their capacity to persist and adapt, approaching the HSC with positivity and resilience. This persistence was most definitely rewarded, as showcased by the remarkable number of early entry offers to University.”
Ms Bateman continues, “a growth in early entry pathways highlights the increase in Universities applying the same lenses that future employers will apply. While the consistency of results remains important, Universities are also emphasising characteristics such as leadership, critical thinking and problem solving to ensure graduates have what it takes to complete degrees and be successful in their future fields.”
The academic achievements of the Loreto Normanhurst Year 12 cohort included 4 students being recognised Top Achievers in 6 Courses (students who attained a place in NSW for a subject). A further 10 students were recognised as All-Round Achievers (students who achieved the highest band possible in 10 or more units studied). Loreto Normanhurst students were recognised for their exceptional results on the Distinguished Achievers List, with 235 mentions.
Loreto Normanhurst ranked 48th overall in NSW and 6th among Catholic schools, with the academic results and the significant number of early entry offers, specifically in human-centred career pathways, a testament to the award-winning Loreto Normanhurst Student Growth Model (LNSGM).
The LNSGM emphasises student collaboration, creative and critical thinking, digital capabilities, adaptability, and independence through a diverse array of learning experiences inside and outside the classroom. The Model is integral in shaping graduates who are agile and resilient thinkers who are prepared to navigate an ever-changing global landscape.
Speaking to the accomplishments of the 2022 HSC cohort, Loreto Normanhurst Principal, Ms Marina Ugonotti said:
“We are enormously proud of the accomplishments of the Loreto Normanhurst Class of 2022 in this year’s HSC. These results showcase the cohort’s dedication, generous collaboration, grit, and holistic approach to all aspects of their learning. The Class of 2022 is a group of strong, intelligent, and compassionate young women who will no doubt make their mark on the world as future leaders, thinkers, activists, creatives, and women of service.”
“Now more than ever, we recognise the importance of preparing students through a holistic approach to learning. Our award-winning Student Growth Model continues to support our students to achieve highly across all areas of our embedded FACE Curriculum. The FACE curriculum places equal importance on the holistic development of students across areas of Faith, Academic, Community and Extra-Curricular to empower the female leaders of tomorrow as women of strength, kindness, and action,” says Ms Ugonotti.
