End of Year Events

As another school year comes to a close, I would like to take the time to congratulate all the senior students in Years 10-12. It has been a remarkable year and most pleasing to work alongside all senior students, who have largely demonstrated great attitudes to their studies, and perhaps of greater importance, a respect and care for those around them. It has been an incredibly busy time, with many end of year events taking place. The Secondary Awards Night was a time of celebration for students and their families of individual achievements for the academic year.

Of special mention are our trophy recipients as follows:

Year 10

Christlikeness Award: Courtney Jurd

Dux: Ryan Mitchell

Principals Award: McKeely DeThier

Year 11

Christlikeness Award: Elisabeth Degen

Dux: Bronte Robertson

Year 12

Dux: Amber Hankins

Congratulations to all of our senior students on their achievements.

We have fare welled the graduating “Class of 2017” who have been an absolutely wonderful class of seniors to work alongside. It’s been a huge journey, totalling thirteen years of formal education. There have been countless extracurricular activities that have formed a well-rounded experience of school life combined with the huge task of completing senior school work. Earning your Year 12 qualifications is a major task; often combined with the juggling of school based traineeships or apprenticeships, casual jobs, church, sporting and family commitments – this equals an immense workload. I have once again admired the resilience of our graduates, particularly throughout the gruelling senior years. It has definitely been through much grit, determination and hard work that every one of our seniors have now completed their journey in secondary school successfully. 100% of our graduating students will receive their Queensland Certificate of Education. Well done seniors!


Of greater importance than gaining qualifications has been the character and integrity that the senior class have so aptly displayed. Through all the busyness of school life, we have been thrilled to see the seniors grow into fine young adults. Many have led by Christ’s example and exceeded our expectations in so many ways. My prayer is that all of our graduating students trust in, and really lean on God in life’s journey ahead. To finish, we celebrated with the Year 12 formal at Sirromet Winery on Friday 17th November. It was a wonderful evening of celebrations.

We have also welcomed in our new student leadership for 2018. A very warm congratulations to the following students.
