Going to a NSW government school is just such an amazing thing It gives me confidence a network of friends teaches me how to be more organised being a leader The best thing about studying at a NSW government school was that you felt part of the team When I arrived at my school I felt really welcomed I was part of the group The teachers considered me as a new student that is just come from a different country with a different background but at the same time they treated me equally with the other students which was good The best thing about studying at a NSW government school is the sense of belonging I received from the teachers and friends and classmates The teachers held lots of international students afternoon teas and we could ask questions and if we had any problems they were willing to help That expression of kindness is what actually brings students out of the comfort zones and they actually encourage their will to ask questions I think that’s the important fact that help us to ease our path throughout the completion of our HSC It was surprisingly easy to make friends at school and some of them become my best friends accompany me until university and in life now But the best part was the supports that I gained from my teachers my international student coordinator and the career advisor at school My advise to someone who wants to come and study at a NSW government school is aim for a goal and have your eyes fixed on that goal My experience in studying in a NSW government high school it definitely gives me confidence and gives maturity And I guess those factors are really important for me to continue onto next chapter of my life I’m about to study combined Law and Engineering at University of Sydney and I’m excited because I’m going to meet new friends and I’m looking forward to studying there At the moment I’m studying my final year doing Bachelor of Medical Science at University of Technology Sydney Without the foundation that I’ve got from NSW government school I wouldn’t be able to attend a university and doing so well Right now I am studying Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Secondary Education at the University of NSW And I’m very excited to continue onto next stage of my life And in the future I hope I can become a respectful teacher of a NSW government high school Right now I’m doing a double degree in Law and Science Information Technology and I’m looking forward to the future Because I see myself at some time as a lawyer who is working in Australia and someone who is going to serve the people in the same way that they have felt me be in the very place that I am today The students have been nominated by the School Principals for the DEC International Student Award for School Service or Academic Achievement I would like to congratulate all the students with us today Your achievements and contributions are credited to yourselves your schools and your families And I wish you every success in your future studies and careers
