Brady count­ing down to start of univer­sity

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS - Sue Har­ris

BRADY Urquhart is grate­ful his hard­work in­Year 12 re­sulted in an of­fer to do a Bach­e­lor of Com­merce at the Univer­sity of the Sun­shine Coast.

Sev­eral stints of work ex­pe­ri­ence with an ac­coun­tant con­firmed the Mun­dub­bera boy’s de­ci­sion to make it his pro­fes­sion.

And he can’t wait to get started.

“My aunt, Danielle Maud­s­ley is an ac­coun­tant in Kin­garoy and I’ve al­ways hoped to work with her one day,” Brady said.

“Be­fore Christ­mas she went round to all my re­la­tions and sug­gested what they should buy me so now I have just about ev­ery­thing I need for uni which is great.”

Since fin­ish­ing school at Gayn­dah State Col­lege in Novem­ber, Brady has been work­ing at La Famille Cafe to save money for the year ahead.

“I’ve been get­ting heaps of hours fill­ing in while other staff take hol­i­days but next Wed­nes­day will be my last day,” he said.

“I’m go­ing to set­tle into the stu­dent house I’m shar­ing with six oth­ers at Sippy Downs and try to find a part-time job be­fore ori­en­ta­tion week which starts on Fe­bru­ary 18.”

Apart from lec­tures which start at 9am and fin­ish at 8pm on Wed­nes­days, Brady said he was happy with his timetable which would give him Mon­day af­ter­noons, Tues­days and the week­ends to work.

Although he doesn’t have a car and still has many hours to ac­cu­mu­late be­fore he can go for his li­cence, he has friends on the Sun­shine Coast and in­tends to buy a push­bike.

“Sev­eral of my class­mates got in at the Sunny Coast and older past pupils of Gayn­dah State Col­lege are there too so there’ll be plenty of peo­ple I know,” he said.

“I can’t wait.”
