Cannon Hill Anglican College (CHAC) is delighted to announce that 10.8 percent of their 2019 Year 12 student cohort achieved an OP 1 and 47.3 percent of the cohort achieved an OP 1-5.
Principal Gary O’Brien said that the school community is proud of the students’ results and keen to see how the 2019 graduating cohort will contribute to the broader community in the future.
“CHAC is very proud of the results achieved by our recent Year 12 graduates – each student was supported and encouraged to pursue their very best, and these exceptional results reflect the College’s commitment to preparing world- and work-ready individuals,” Mr O’Brien said.
“We are delighted with these outcomes and look forward to watching our graduates as they continue to contribute to society in meaningful ways.”
Recent CHAC OP1-awarded graduates Mia, Dan, Jacques, Jarrod and Emily have shared their Year 12 highlights and offer advice for future senior students.
Mia, who is looking to study Veterinary Science at The University of Queensland, said that, “I think it’s good to get involved in the community, there are so many extra-curricular activities to be a part of it whilst you are in Year 12.”
Dan, who is hoping to study Maths and Economics at The University of Queensland, said that, “Year 12 is really just about doing your best, you put the effort in where you can and do your best.”
Jacques, who is looking to study International Studies at The University of Queensland, said that, “My advice would be to take hold of as many opportunities you can that come around.”
Jarrod, who is keen to study Advanced Science and Maths at The University of Queensland, said that, “For me, it was to not be discouraged – if you do bad in one assessment, it’s not the end of the world.”
Emily, who is looking to study Law and Science at The University of Queensland, said that, “For me, it was the support network and the community at CHAC, it was great.”
Three other CHAC Year 12 students were also awarded OP1s.
All 2019 Year 12 graduates will be invited back to CHAC in February 2020 to attend the annual Honours Assembly where they will be formally recognised.
This was the last year of OPs in Queensland, with 2020 seeing the introduction of the ATAR system.
