Graduate offers advice for new school leaders
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.”
