“On behalf of the Kambala community, I am delighted for the Class of 2018 and congratulate them on their outstanding personal and academic achievements,” said Principal, Shane Hogan.

Kambala offers students a choice of learning pathways where girls can achieve either the HSC or the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. 

“Around 85 percent of the Kambala Year 12 cohort have received their HSC results. The remaining students completed the IB Diploma and they will receive their results on 3 January. The HSC scores represent only a fraction of the entire picture of academic excellence at Kambala.”

“Once again, this cohort continued the fine tradition of academic excellence, being ranked the 14th most successful school by the Sydney Morning Herald and highest ranked non-selective girls’ school in the Eastern Suburbs.”“Inspired learning and empowering young women of integrity is at the heart of Kambala’s educational philosophy. It is gratifying to see Kambala’s graduating cohort reinforce the School’s reputation for academic excellence. The results are a credit to these young women who have exhibited diligence in their study, pride in their School and the character that is synonymous with a Kambala girl. They can be enormously proud of their achievements,” Mr Hogan said.
