Danebank is proud to announce the exceptional HSC results of our 2020 Year 12 Cohort The Danebank Council and Staff will remember our Class of 2020 for their grace and determination. In spite of significant obstacles they had to overcome, each girl embraced the challenges, learning about and building their reserves, capacity and resilience.
Danebank congratulates the HSC Class of 2020 on their efforts and many good results. These results reflect the commitment and hard work of the students and their dedicated teachers and the great partnership and support of our families.
The achievements are a testament to the exceptional educational experience offered at Danebank, within our dynamic and vibrant Christian learning community as she transforms from a girl to an empowered and magnificent young woman.
We commend our students for attaining their personal best, not only with the HSC results, but also by participating and contributing to school life and the wider community throughout their final years at Danebank. I am especially proud of our girls considering the difficulties this cohort faced due to the Covid-19 pandemic. To the graduates of 2020, I offer my warmest congratulations for what you have achieved and most importantly, for the young women of influence that you have become. You soared to great heights and made us very proud!
Dr Emma Burgess, Principal
