Twenty-one Ku-ring-gai creators and innovators from the 2021 HSC will be celebrated alongside a selection of their top classmates, in one of eight HSC Showcases.

Each year, the HSC Showcases display a selection of top major works of students across visual arts, performing arts and technologies.

Alister Henskens SC MP said this is a great opportunity for local Ku-ring-gai young people to have their achievements, creativity and innovation shared with the local and broader community.

“Our local young people should be so proud of what they have achieved – not only completing the HSC in a year like no other, but producing work of such high quality,” Mr Henskens.

“To see their work up on display should fill them with pride and confidence – it is no small feat to be included in an HSC Showcase.”

Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the local students were part of only 260 HSC graduates to have been selected from across the state to be featured in the HSC showcases.

“I’m so proud of these talented students and I strongly encourage our local schools, teachers and community members to get along and take a look at this year’s showcases and to celebrate their incredible work,” Ms Mitchell said.

“It’s also really exciting that this year CALLBACK, ENCORE, OnSTAGE and SHAPE 2021 Seminars will be available for schools to watch online, from wherever they are in NSW.”

ARTEXPRESS is now on at the Art Gallery of NSW, and at limited venues across the state throughout the year.
