Grad­u­ate of­fers ad­vice for new school lead­ers

Central Queensland News - - NEWS -

THOMAS’S friend and fel­low Marist Col­lege grad­u­ate, Ma­son Sch­midt, was also suc­cess­ful in se­cur­ing an OP3.

He said he was very ex­cited when he found out his re­sult as it guar­an­teed him a place­ment of­fer from The Univer­sity of Queens­land in Bris­bane.

“My fam­ily was just as ex­cited to hear about my OP and were all ea­ger to con­grat­u­late me and cel­e­brate as quickly as pos­si­ble,” Ma­son said.

“I was also very ex­cited to hear what my friends and sis­ter had re­ceived as well.”

How­ever, like Thomas, Ma­son’s OP re­sult did not come with­out a lot of hard work.

“The one thing that set me up to do well was to ap­ply my­self fully to ev­ery­thing that could help me achieve highly, such as con­sis­tent study­ing to work­ing as hard as I could on each and ev­ery as­sign­ment,” Ma­son said.

Ma­son, who plans to study a dual de­gree in engi­neer­ing and com­merce at The Univer­sity of Queens­land, also had some ad­vice for 2019’s se­nior stu­dents.

“Next year’s Grade 12 stu­dents should re­mem­ber that all the teach­ers are there to help us suc­ceed and set us up for the fu­ture,” Ma­son said.

“So all the home­work and as­sess­ments they give re­ally will help us to do well and achieve our best re­sults.”
