University of Sydney Academic Excellence Award

Congratulations to Hugh McSweeney who is the recipient the 2018 Year 10 Academic Excellence Award from the University of Sydney.

This scholarly ceremony was held in The Great Hall at Sydney University on April 3rd 2019. Hugh reflects that “the night was a fantastic celebration of academic success for students throughout Sydney and included speeches from an Associate Professor and a Dalyell scholar student. Their speeches highlighted the University’s central academic principles and their original approach for holistic student development in a 21st-century environment. The experience provided a unique insight into the transition from high school to university, and the array of opportunities available at the University. I was very humbled to have received this award.

Hugh was joined by fellow EREA recipients and an article will feature in an upcoming RICEAN acknowledging this outstanding achievement.
