Eight showcases featuring 441 stars of the 2017 HSC were launched on Wednesday 31 January at a special event at the Art Gallery of NSW.
NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) CEO David de Carvalho said this year’s Showcase program, which kicks off with the opening of ARTEXPRESS this evening, allows the wider community to see the amazing talent of NSW HSC students.
“The eight HSC Showcases are part of the state’s annual cultural calendar, and are attended by current future HSC students and their teachers for both enjoyment and as inspiration.”
Students attending this year’s Showcase launch include:
“I would not be surprised to see a young Nicole Kidman, Ben Quilty or Lance Hill, inventor of the Hills Hoist, emerge from this year’s performers and exhibitors,” Mr de Carvalho said.
“Selection for a HSC showcase is an outstanding achievement which reflects the dedication of students, teachers and schools to developing creativity – a skill considered to be critical to success in the 21st century.
“The HSC has a strong history of nurturing creative and design talent.
“In addition to congratulating the 441 students selected for a Showcase, I wish to congratulate the students who achieved the highest marks possible for their performances and projects and were nominated for a Showcase,” Mr de Carvalho said.
