Four Taree TAFE students who completed their HSC equivalent in just 12 months have been accepted into the universities of their choice for 2012.
Merinda Ramage, of Upper Lansdowne, was the top-scoring Taree TAFE student with a Tertiary Entrance Score (TES) of 97.6. Merinda exceeded even her own expectations and was admitted to a Bachelor of Midwifery at University of Newcastle's Callaghan Campus. The course includes doing practical birthing experience at John Hunter Hospital.
