32 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, January 15, 2009 MB 2008 HSC HONOUR ROLL www.innerwestweekly.com.au Katie Stellon, Khasthuri Pathmanandavel and Victoria Phan from Meriden school did well in HSC. Picture: PHIL BLATCH ~PP233167 Relief for brainy trio THERE were tears, screams and laughter when three Meriden High students received their HSC marks, placing them on the high achievers' list. Katie Stellon, Khasthuri Pathmanandavel and Victoria Phan were ''stoked'' and ''re- lieved'' when they received their results. All three received 90 per cent and above for all their subjects. Head prefect Khasthuri said she was glad the HSC was over. ''I thought I was going to fail chemistry, so I'm very relieved,'' she said. Khasthuri said the most diffi- cult thing was having to juggle her prefect commitments and study. ''It meant I had to study really hard and work efficiently with the time I had.'' Katie, who has been playing piano for 11 years, scored 99.65. ''I liked all my subjects but the most time-consuming was music because you have to work for it constantly over the whole year,'' she said. Despite ''cramming'' in her studying a few weeks before the HSC, Victoria came out with a pleasing UAI result of 99.8. ''I am stoked,'' she said. ''My brother and I stayed up until 6am in the morning to check my marks.'' The girls want to continue their studies in medicine at university and are in line to receive Premier Awards for Excellence. Principal Julie Greenhalgh is ''absolutely thrilled'' with the girls' results. Celebration time for students Grace Leo and Melissa Werry. STUDENTS at Presbyterian Ladies College Sydney are celebrating a job well done after achieving impressive results in their HSC. Dux Grace Leo said she was ''very happy'' with her UAI score of 99.95. ''The HSC can be quite a difficult year but I have much thanks to give to God for the support and encouragement from my family, friends and the PLC Sydney com- munity,'' she said. Grace hopes to study medicine at the University of NSW or combined medicine at Sydney University. The school said about half of its Year 12 students achieved a UAI of 90 or higher, and seven students achieved 99 or higher, including Melissa Werry, of Burwood. A record 14 HSC students from the Croydon College were recog- nised on the All-Round Achievers' List for gaining marks over 90 in courses totalling 10 or more units.
