Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School’s (IGGS) graduating class of 2022 has maintained the School’s reputation for exceptional academic performance and a commitment to personal excellence.
With many high-achieving students, eight percent (8%) received an ATAR greater than or equal to 99, placing them in the top 1% in Queensland. 24.5% of students received an ATAR greater than or equal to 95, and 37% achieved 90 or greater.
The 2022 Miss Tatham’s Memorial Prize for Dux of the School was awarded to Lauren Stacey. Lauren achieved an ATAR of 99.75. Lauren got a late offer to study Dentistry at UQ and is now in her second semester. Dentistry was her dream and first preference.
Students achieved perfect scores in 12 external assessments, and two students attained overall perfect scores (100%) in subjects for the year.
Many IGGS students were offered early university places, from Griffith University and Queensland University of Technology, in study areas including Psychological Science, Business, Engineering, Fine Arts, and Creative Industries.
Our 2022 Seniors should all be proud of themselves. These results are outstanding, and a testament to the diligence this cohort has shown not just this year, but throughout their educational journey.
Senior studies for these students were interrupted and challenged many times throughout the past two years. Our students have risen to the challenge, demonstrating flexibility and adaptability.
25% of students also achieved Vocational Education Training Certificates in conjunction with their ATAR or Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE). This means students leave school with work-ready skills, enabling them to seek employment or further training. Students undertook Certificate courses in a range of disciplines, including sport and recreation, hospitality, health support, dance and salon assistance.
100% of our IGGS Seniors attained a Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) or a Queensland Certificate of Individual Achievement (QCIA).
At IGGS, we have been educating girls for 130 years and know how to tailor learning programs to suit our young women. Regular goal setting and review, as well as a focus on student well-being ensure each student is supported to achieve their personal best.
Our suite of excellence programs in academics, sport, the arts, and entrepreneurship and innovation ensure all students can pursue their passions and extend themselves in their particular area of interest and expertise.
IGGS is proud to have among its Alumna many graduates who have gone on to excel in business, politics, the creative arts, sport, health, law, science and so much more. We look forward to following our 2022 graduates as they embark on their life after school, and continue their commitment to lifelong learning, fostered here at IGGS.
We recognise the contribution our exceptional teachers and supportive families have made to these outcomes, and we again extend our congratulations to the Class of 2022.
