The Class of 2020 was our first cohort to undergo the new
Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) and the Australian Tertiary Admission
Rank (ATAR) system which replaced the Overall Position (OP) system.
The QCE is issued by Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA)
while the ATAR is issued by Queensland Tertiary Admission Centre (QTAC).
Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC) determines the ATAR score using a
student’s best five General subjects or a student’s best results in a
combination of four General subjects results plus one Applied subject result or
a student's completed VET (Vocational Education and Training) qualification at Australian
Qualifications Framework (AQF) Certificate III level or above. Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) focuses on the
curriculum and assessment aspects of the senior curriculum including endorsement
and confirmation of internal assessments for quality assurance purpose.
Furthermore, QCAA is also responsible for the end-of-year 12 external
assessments, i.e. public examinations.
We are very proud of the achievements of our Class of 2020. As a Lutheran school focused on celebrating all talents and gifts, and on always seeking to nurture and empower every learner, we offer an exceptional holistic education. We help our students to achieve the best possible outcomes through various personalised pathways tailored for their areas of interest, no matter where they lie, facilitating individual success and personal best. We congratulated many of our students as the recipients of scholarships given by Bond University, Griffith University, Queensland University of Technology, Southern Cross University and University of Queensland. Moreover, many were offered places before their graduation.There are many students within this cohort who achieved excellent results and whilst it is difficult to report on all of these, we have shared a few individual results below as examples of the quality teaching and learning program at the College and of the wide range of pathways chosen.
Well done Class of 2020, you did yourselves and your college proud!
