Dubbo College Senior Campus graduating class of 2019 came together for one last time on Tuesday to mark the end of their high school careers and celebrate their final Higher School Certificate results.
Students gathered for a special farewell afternoon tea with staff from across the college, in what is now an annual ritual.
Dubbo College Senior Campus principal Marisha Blanco was delighted with the continued increase in the number of students achieving results in the highest bands.
"The commitment and dedication of teachers and students have more than paid off in 2019, with the college achieving 154 band sixes and fives," Ms Blanco said.
"2019 has been a momentous year, and I am overjoyed for our students, teachers, support staff and parents who have collectively contributed to the HSC success of our students including the graduation of highest number of Aboriginal students nationally."
Dux of the college Kazuya Miller is currently in Japan, but "facetimed" so he could participate in the afternoon tea.
He said he was very happy with his results, gaining a band six legal studies and E4s in extension one and two mathematics.
"I am very grateful for the opportunities that are now available to me." Mr Miller said.
"I'll be working in Sydney next year as a consultant with Price Waterhouse Cooper,"
"Dubbo may be a small place, but Dubbo College is a great place to study, they have the best teachers".
High performer Archie Purcell achieved band six results in ancient history, English advanced, music one and society and culture as well as an E4 in History Extension and one E3.
Archie intends to study arts at the Australian National University, hoping to work in humanities in the future.
Tatum Roberts was not expecting her four Band sixes but was feeling great, especially after gaining an ATAR of 92.95.
"I am hopeful for a place in Radiography at the University of Newcastle, but I am planning a gap year to save before I go," Roberts said.
The students said they were very grateful for all the college had done to prepare them for not only their HSC but their futures beyond the school.
