NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has recorded a message for Year 12 students as they enter their last week of school and begin serious preparation for HSC exams.

Ms Berejiklian told the class of 2020 they were “indeed a special year”.

“Every time I hear or think about the HSC exams I think about my own experiences,” the Premier, who completed her HSC more than 30 years ago, said.

“I was anxious, I was stressed, I wanted to do well, but I now know looking back I put too much pressure on myself.

“I know many of you will now be in that same situation but living through COVID-19 and the challenges you’ve been through has made you more resilient.

“I hope all of you know how special you are and how much we appreciate what you’re all going through.”
