The next generation of performers, inventors and creators have put their talents on display in a NSW-first ceremony to launch the 2023 HSC Showcase season.

NSW Minister for Education and Early Learning, Sarah Mitchell, said for the first time, all 458 students selected for special HSC showcases were celebrated at an Oscars-like awards ceremony.

Sophia Tsoltoudis from George’s River College Oatley Senior Campus was selected for the OnSTAGE showcase with her drama piece, Tatty Hennessey’s A Hundred Words for Snow — a coming-of-age play about love, life, death and rebirth.

“I loved my Year 12 experience so much, going to school every day was fun. I only took subjects I felt really passionate about, so working on them never felt like a chore,” Sophia said.

Minister Mitchell spoke about the ceremony being a fantastic opportunity for schools and the general public to witness the talents of young people and provide another platform for graduates to launch future careers in the field they are passionate about.

“It really felt like the Oscars of the HSC creative arts world,” Ms Mitchell said.

Minister for the Arts Ben Franklin said he was honoured to celebrate the success of students from the HSC Class of 2022.

“The work they have produced is simply outstanding. I know we will be seeing many of these talented young people excel in the future, whether that’s on stage, on the screen, or behind the curtain,” Mr Franklin said.

HSC Showcases are a selection of top major works from students across the creative and performing arts and technologies.
