An impressive 19% of the Class of 2018 achieved an estimated ATAR of 95 and above, 39% attained an ATAR of 90 and above, and 73% were above 80. Loreto Normanhurst was ranked fifth amongst Catholic Schools, and in 46th position in NSW (*Source: Sydney Morning Herald, December 14 2018 results).
As a non-selective and comprehensive school, this is an incredible achievement from the students who worked so very hard for these results.

In August last year, the HSC Showcase showed the community a group of Year 12 students fully alive in their creativity. It was wondrous to see students perform and showcase their HSC work for us. Works that speak of who they are as young people, with great minds, talents and honed problem solving skills. Not only was there beauty to behold in the works they produced, but it was very obvious that there was grit in the planning, practice and performance.
It was an impressive night and the HSC Showcase demonstrated just how incredibly talented our young women truly are and it showed us so powerfully that the Class of 2018 were ready for any work or learning environment they will join in the future.
We thank Ms Julie Ewington (Class of ’63), art curator, academic and broadcaster – as our special guest on the evening. In her opening speech, she shared her passion and awe for creative arts and memories as an encouraged and inspired student of the Art Department.
