COMMUNITY RECOGNITION STATEMENT - James Gill 99 ATAR

Ms JENNY AITCHISON (Maitland)—I would like to acknowledge eighteen-year-old Hunter Valley Grammar school student James Gill for achieving an ATAR of 99 in the HSC. The local student was named as an All Rounder on the 2019 Honour Roll, after scoring in the top band for 10 units of his subjects.


James achieved band six results in Chemistry, Economics, Mathematics, Mathematics Extension 1, Physics and Science Extension. It is wonderful to see so many Maitland Students over-achieving in the HSC.


His success according to him, was put down to his consistent studying rather than cramming at the last minute, I wish him all the best in his future studies and on his well-earned break before university starts. It is the result of preparation, hard work and learning from failure.
