Students make the grade

The results are in! A time of great anticipation for thousands of school-leavers, as they eagerly await their Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) for the first time in Queensland.

2020 has seen eligible Year 12 students across Queensland awarded with results ranging in decreasing increments of 0.05 from 99.95 down to 30. With only approximately 30 students across the state receiving the maximum of 99.95.

Sunshine Coast Grammar School is delighted to acknowledge Grace Thomas as one of those top-performing students along with 32 other students who received a ranking score of 95 or above.

The graduating class of 2020 has excelled in their academic pursuits with approximately 11.11% of students achieving an ATAR of 98.9 or above.  A further 47.78% scoring above an ATAR of 91.5 or above and over 95% above a ranking of 65.5.

The realisation of hard work and commitment has finally paid off for these students as the journey they once only dreamed of is now about to become a reality, which for many of these young men and women is going on to pursue their passion in medicine, law, performing arts or finance.

Principal at Sunshine Coast Grammar School, Mrs Maria Woods is delighted with the results which are some of the best in the state.

“The results achieved are a reflection of the hard work, commitment and positive attitude these students have displayed towards their studies. We are incredibly proud of our Year 12 cohort and congratulate them on their outstanding achievements,” said Mrs Woods.

“2020 has been an extraordinary year and we are incredibly proud of all our students and their efforts this year.  Parents have expressed their deep gratitude to the Grammar staff for their dedication to their sons and daughters. Our goal has been to encourage, challenge and nurture students so that they can pursue their dreams beyond school.”

“Success comes in many forms and as a School it is our goal for every graduating Year 12 student to be working or studying towards a career that not only values their talents, but for which they also have a real passion and purpose,” said Mrs Woods.

“We encourage each and every student to go confidently in the direction of their dreams, to work hard and to realise their full potential in the next phase of their unique journey.  Congratulations to the Class of 2020,” said Mrs Woods.
