Take the next in the list. The guy who topped Malek Fahd got like 99.35. We have a near 100 (pigs), 2 99.90's, 3 99.85's and 40 above the 99. On average, and im talking for like 30 years in a row, 24 people get over 99. That means that when Sydney Boys used to come top 5 in the state, we only got 24-25 over the 99 mark. Now you tell me, we have 40, thats right FORTY people over 99. Dont you think thats good?
pfffffft, 14th my arse. Whatver people may think, I think our school did wonderfully this year. hmph
And as for the Grammar argument. I agree, Grammar is a good school. Its an awesome school, in fact. I mean, it has WWAAAYYYY better teachers than our school. You look at our english department, no teacher that actually teaches. Maths department only has 2 teachers who actually teach. Our social science department rocks, but 3 of them are retiring/moving away this year. Science, lets not talk about it. hehe, trust me, teachers make a HUGE difference. I had a good maths teacher last year, and I know exactly what a big difference it makes. So yeah, Grammar is good cause it has good teachers (students pay like $13000 a year, so they can afford the best teachers). Im not saying there is no 'talent' or smart people there, but teachers also play a role. For a public school, SBHS does very well.
yeah i've notice sydney boys going down because of their english-but how unambitious can your english department be?Originally posted by Constip8edSkunk
we got more than 2 99.90...
as for the english department... they have no ambition; set no high standards... last year's 16 band 6 out of 180+ was a good year... they went over the moon with the 24 band 6 this year.... its as if they dun expect much from us... after all we "all got in on the maths marks" ...(sifnt the same for most of the other selective schools)
well, my eng ext 1 teacher(s) prolly missed more classes than they held...Originally posted by Wohzazz
