Among 37 Best Year 12 Students in 2015
We congratulate Lachlan McKay, 2015 College Captain, who was recognised as one of Queensland’s top performing Year 12 students at the Queensland Certificate of Education awards last weekend. He was one of 37 students from the state to receive an award for outstanding academic achievement in their senior studies. The 37 students were ahead of more than 50,000 of their peers. Lachlan has been accepted into a Doctor of Medicine at the University of Queensland through the Provisional Entry for School Leavers pathway and was also awarded a Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship.
Lachlan is an inspirational, unassuming young man who provided great service to this community. He tutored his classmates, maintained excellent relationships with his peers and contributed strongly to the College sports program. He set goals and worked hard to achieve them. This same achievement of personal excellence was the story of many of our Year 12 students from 2015 in many varied forms. We celebrate with the entire cohort their achievements and who they have become. We wish them well as they now embark on the next phase of their lives. Many of them will be engaging with university life for the first time this week, while others have started in the working world or pursued other areas of interest.
