Blacktown Mayor Stephen Bali congratulated all local students who completed the HSC this year.
“With the release of ATAR scores, I congratulate the 2018 year 12 graduates on completing their high school certificates,” he said. “With Blacktown Council's commitment to bringing a university to Blacktown CBD, I hope the next generation of high school graduates will be able to go to university closer to home.”
