With 68% of the HSC cohort achieving a place on the honour roll, 17 students on the All-Rounders List, four state rankings, and more than 56% of the group receiving an ATAR over 90 (top 10% of the state), Sydney’s Moriah College has ranked 18th in the State, and one of only two non-selective co-educational schools in the top 20.

A  spokesperson for Moriah stated:  “This is truly outstanding, and an affirmation of the dedication of the school’s teachers, the care and hard work with which they have inspired their students to do their best, and the commitment, resilience, and tenacity of the cohort.

While navigating the intricacies of the past two years, Moriah has proven that with goodwill, creativity and positivity, and a healthy dose of innovation and agility, they can overcome any challenges and accomplish anything we set our minds to.”

College Principal Rabbi Yehoshua Smukler added: “Our true measures of success are the character of our graduates, their individual achievements, the Jewish values that they take with them beyond school, and the passion with which they follow their ambitions.

Our students are confident to face challenges head-on, to inspire others, to grow their skills, and to give back to the community as they make an impact on the world around them. This is a by-product of a caring learning environment, and our focus on wellbeing and personal excellence. Our students often achieve beyond their expectations which opens new vistas of opportunities for their future. This is the gift of a Moriah education.”

Year 12 Dux and the highest ATAR of 99.85 was achieved by Jessica Zeltzer. Jessica was joined on the list of All-Rounders by Asher Breuer, Lexi Fleischer, Heath Gassner, Allie Goldman, Jason Hirsch, Sage Katz, Lara Kopelowitz, Aaliyah Kotlyar, Benjamin Milner, Jema Roozendaal, Elisha Shifroni, Samantha Shub, Danielle Shulkin, Sam Wein, Ariel Weininger, and Tali Wunsh.

Noah Joshua was placed 3rd in the state for Classical Hebrew Continuers, Sage Katz was placed 10th for English Standard, Daniel Kulikovsky was placed 5th in Portuguese Continuers (through the NSW School of Languages), and Ethan Agosin placed 12 in the state for Mathematics Standard 2. 

Overall, 15 courses resulted in 100% of students achieving band 5/6, 85% of the cohort’s results were achieved within the top two bands, and 99.5% of results were achieved within the top 3 bands.
