2016 Year 12 Academic Results
Congratulations to the 2016 Seniors of Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School for their strong performance in this year’s Year 12 academic results. Some of the results are among the School’s top three academic performances since the OP system commenced in 1992.
A high percentage of our graduating students were OP-eligible, reflecting the School’s focus on providing students with a holistic education, with an emphasis on academic achievement.
The results achieved by our OP-eligible students show that Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School continues to perform well above the state average.
The median OP for our Year 12 graduating cohort was 8, meaning half of the OP-eligible students attained an OP 8 or better. Nearly 60% achieved an A or a B in the Queensland Core Skills Test (compared to the state average of 47.5%).
Special mention must also go to the three students who achieved an OP 1, Savinika Wijeyewickrema, Hannah Beamish and Nicola Harris.
The School is also proud of the 12 students who successfully completed a Diploma of Business and the 21 students who completed vocational coursework and attained Certificates I, II, III or IV, opening doors to further study and training in their chosen fields.
These pleasing academic outcomes are testament to the hard work and diligence of our graduating class and our high performing teaching staff who have delivered positive, personalised learning programs to nurture our girls’ individual best.
It is also important to recognise the families of our graduating Seniors, both for their support, and for giving their daughters the opportunity to benefit from an exceptional educational experience at IGGS.
Never has a broad, liberal education been more important, and while we are proud of our students’ strong academic performance in 2016, we are equally proud of their strength of character, leadership qualities and their many and varied achievements in the cultural, sporting and service arenas.
Congratulations Class of 2016 on your collective achievements and the contributions to the wider community that you have made, and will continue to make, as confident, well-educated young women of Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School. There is no doubt that each of you will find joy and success in your chosen life pathways.
