Kyle Armstrong loves his home town of Casino and wants to stay there now hes finished school. But the bright young thing has topped the state in metal and engineering in the HSC, which means he may have to spread his wings and head further afield to follow his dream of being a civil engineer.
Id rather stay around here because Casino is a really nice place and its my home, said Kyle. Ill try and get a cadetship where I can work and study at the same time but otherwise Ill go off to university.
Kyle, who discovered he scored a UAI of 92.6 when HSC results were released this week, is not the only bright young thing who has emerged from Casino High School this year.
Jessica Harvey scored a UAI of 97.05 and received a Student of the Year Award, while Tess Bennett scored 97.4.
