We congratulate and celebrate those students who achieved a State ranking for the following subjects:

Jessica Beutum – Business Studies – 8th in the State Adam Winter – Business Studies – 19th in the State Ethan De Melo – Modern History – 20th in the State

Other notable highlights include:

  • Ariel Berger was selected and Asha Friedman was nominated for ARTEXPRESS
  • Amber Langman was nominated for ENCORE

The School ranked 38th in the State, based on the percentage of Band 6 and E4 results across all subjects. Amongst non-selective co-educational schools, Emanuel ranked an impressive 4th in the State.

Andrew Watt, Principal commented: “This year’s impressive HSC results are testament to our students’ academic strength, resilience and tenacity as well as their teachers’ commitment to their success and personal development.

“Whilst we can get carried away with individual and collective performances, we must always keep in mind that our students are much more than their ATAR. They depart our School equipped with the mindset and skills required to thrive in the workplace – and, importantly, as ethical, caring and responsible global citizens.”

Nine per cent of students received an ATAR of 99.00 or more, 21% received an ATAR of 95.00 or more and 39% of students received 90.00 or more.

Beau Glass, Dux of the School, scored an ATAR of 99.80. He said: “Emanuel has given me an opportunity to embrace and explore each and every passion; the School is the physical embodiment of ruach.” He highlights the four musical productions he acted in as highlights which gave him the opportunity to connect with students in other Year groups and embrace his creativity and passion for performance.

Beau is regarded by his peers as loyal, tenacious and passionate about academics and sport. He was described as creative, kind and always up for a good laugh. He is planning to study Science/Law at Sydney University with the aim of becoming a barrister.

Repeating the success of 2019, there were four All-Round Achievers while all students in Drama, Modern Hebrew Continuers (Year 11 accelerants) and Music 1 received a Band 6.

Despite the obstacles and uncertainty posed by Covid-19 in 2020, our Kesser Torah College HSC cohort proved their determination to succeed by achieving outstanding results in the HSC, coming First in the State in two subjects.


Of the 2020 HSC cohort which comprised 21 Year 12 students and four Year 11 students:


▪ 52% achieved an ATAR above 90


▪ 71% were placed on the Distinguished Achievers list (those who achieved a result of Band 6 in one or more courses)


▪ 57% achieved scores where all subjects were placed in Bands 5 or 6


▪ 1 student earned a place on the All-Rounder List (for achieving a Band 6 in at least 10 units)

The two Dux of the College in this year’s HSC are:


▪ Yehuda Eisenberg – ATAR withheld

▪ Esther Israel – ATAR 98


Kesser Torah College Principal Roy Steinman extended a hearty congratulations to all KTC’s HSC students:


“Mazal tov to our Year 12 students. We have seen how Covid-19 brought out the best and the worst in humanity. I can honestly say: it certainly brought out the best in all of our Year 12 students. Not only did they do themselves, their teachers and the school proud, but as leaders and role models, they excelled. They have shown that through it all they never compromised their Yiddishkeit nor their Torah values. The superb HSC results they achieved is really only the commentary to a wonderful year and school career. I thank all their teachers (not only for HSC, but all their teachers over the duration of their KTC schooling) for their professionalism and inspirational teaching.”
