Immanuel’s Senior Class of 2022 look to the future with the release of Queensland’s ATAR results.
“This cohort is a group of inspiring young people who have a strong sense of who they are and what they want to achieve,” said Principal Colin Minke.
“Our philosophy is the whole person is the whole point, so the academic is intrinsically linked with each student’s social and emotional well-being.
“The majority of Immanuel graduates progress to university where they choose to study across a wide range of specialist areas.
“Seventeen applied to the University of the Sunshine Coast Early Offer Guarantee Program and all were offered a place. An additional four were accepted in early entrance programs at RMIT, ANU and QUT. This group is as diverse as they are talented,” he said.
The graduates will pursue a variety of pathways ranging from degrees in medicine, engineering, mathematics, advanced science, nursing, psychology, visual art, commerce, journalism, music and opportunities in the defence force and workplace.
Dux Fraser Waddy intends to pursue a Bachelor of Medicine / Bachelor of Surgery.
Fraser received the College’s Dr Matthew Jones UCAT Bursary. With an ATAR of 99.45, Fraser hopes to study medicine at either James Cook or Griffith University.
“Both my parents work in the medical field and medicine has always interested me. I want to help others and I’ve seen the impact doctors have when family members are ill and the relief and joy when they recover,” said Fraser
Artists Libby Evans and Zoe Kamarinos achieved their dream when they were both offered early entrance to RMIT’s School of Art, ranked number one in Australia and number 15 in the world for art and design (2021 QS Rankings).
But not all graduates are pursuing an academic pathway. AFL player Hunter Moore is continuing his Certificate IV in Engineering while he trains in the U18 Brisbane Lions Academy with a view to one day play AFL professionally.
“In 2022, all students seeking a vocational pathway were successful, including two electrical apprenticeships which are highly sought after,” said Mr Minke.
“Whatever their pathway and however diverse their interests and talents, we’re proud that all graduates achieved their QCE. We know they will go on to make a positive contribution in their field and to their community and we’re proud that we were able to help them along the way,” he said.
