Well done Class of 2023.
We are incredibly proud of the entire cohort and all that you have achieved. The final results of the HSC are outstanding with some stellar individual outcomes across a broad range of subject areas. But more than that, we are proud of who you are and all that you will become. In your time at NGS we have seen well-rounded, thoughtful, compassionate and outward-looking young people who will be outstanding contributors to the world in the years to come. These ATARs are the culmination of 13 years of school education. You have worked hard individually, and these results also reflect the collaboration of parents, teachers and peers. My grateful thanks for all that you’ve contributed to the life and culture of this community throughout the time that you have been at Newcastle Grammar School. - Mr Macoustra, Head of School
