Top marks for students

WHETHER they want to become doctors, teachers or even brain surgeons, Warwick graduates have made steps in the right direction.

The Queensland Studies Authority yesterday published the Year 12 Outcome Report of more than 46,000 of the state's 2011graduates.

Out of the students who applied for university, 95% of Warwick State High School Year 12 students were accepted into tertiary education.

WSHS acting principal Janelle Robb said the result was fantastic for the school.

"It proves that all the hard work the students put in has paid off," Ms Robb said.

"Our motto is excellence through effort; the students have certainly proved this."

Other local schools also performed well with 100% of Assumption College's applicants being accepted into tertiary education, 91% of Year 12 applicants at The Scots PGC College and 89% for the School of Total Education.

School of Total Education principal Shane Power said the results were not unexpected.

"Each year at SOTE the students continue to excel," Mr Power said.

"We give our students the opportunity to explore what they are good at.

"The education we provide is all about the students getting to know who they are and therefore they will succeed."

Mr Power said the 2011 graduating class was planning to study a variety of courses.

"One student is going to become a PE teacher, another is studying optometry," he said.

Mr Power said at SOTE they focussed on the bigger picture.

"We want our students to become mature adults capable of surviving in the real world," he said.

"I'm sure whether the students succeed in their course or not they will be doing something they enjoy."

 

Highlights

84% of the state's Year 12 graduates achieved a Queensland Certificate of Education, an increase of 3% from 2010.

19% of OP-eligible students attained an OP of 1-5, an additional 43 students from last year.

40% of all Year 12 students received a Vocational Education and Training Certificate II.
