LYLE Halliday from Berry is not around to celebrate his six band 6 HSC results with his friends but he probably doesn’t mind; he’s spending some time in France.
His mother Dianne spoke on his behalf about the effort he put in to achieving his high results including an ATAR of 99.75.
“He has really applied himself to studying, to the point where it was almost like a job,” she said.
“He would come home from school have a break, go for a run, and be back into the study.
“He was in the navy cadets for four years and perhaps that helped him train in managing his time so well.
“He has put the hard yards in and I’m very proud of him.
Lyle was Dux of NAC from year 8 through to year 12 and earlier in the year attended the National Youth Science Week held in South Africa.
“He wants to get into engineering and is interested in the robotics side of things. He is hoping to go to ANU or the University of NSW.
“One of the things both my boys really benefited from was the teachers, who are very committed to their students.
“They inspire them and I think that has been a big component of it,” she said.
