As the 2017 school year gets underway the Gympie High school community is celebrating the outstanding achievements of the 2016 Year 12 cohort, highlighted by two students achieving prestigious Queensland University of Technology Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarships.
Exciting times are ahead for the entire cohort but two students commence their tertiary studies at the top of the state after being awarded prestigious QUT Scholarships. Talented performer Jamie-Lee Griffiths was successful with an Elite Performing Arts Scholarship and brilliant all-rounder Alex Lobegeier received the Chancellor’s Academic Scholarship.
The scholarship program brings together high-achieving students with mentors to challenge students to realise their full potential. Alex and Jamie-Lee will have access to leadership and development opportunities throughout their tertiary studies.
Proud Gympie High Principal Anthony Lanskey said; “Our 2016 results are outstanding across the board and the school community is over the moon with these great results. I congratulate the students, their parents and our dedicated staff for the work they have done not only last year but throughout the high school years of this wonderful group of young men and women.”
