Congratulations to the Redlands College cohort of 2016 for their outstanding achievements. Celebrating the highest Overall Position (OP) scores possible are fourteen of our graduates who received an OP 1 - 3.  Dedication and persistence, in combination with positive attitudes, certainly paid off for the Year 12 cohort of 2016.

The 2016 Redlands College graduates continued the tradition of positive outcomes with  22% of the OP-eligible Senior Class achieving a score between 1 and 5, and 88% achieving a score between 1 and 15. 

Students in the Vocational Education and Training program have been equally successful, with 78 students awarded one or more VET qualifications. Twenty-one students are completing or have completed a School-based Apprenticeship or Traineeship. 

We recently spoke with some of our highest ranked OP students who are about to embark on the journey to achieve their future goals:

Georgia Downs, who was 2016 DUX and achieved an OP1 as well as an Excellence Scholarship to UQ, will be studying Biomedical Science with the goal of becoming a medical doctor. Oscar Smee who also achieved an OP1 will be studying Maths and Economics at UQ.  (pictured right: Oscar Smee & Georgia Downs, OP1 students)

Of our six OP2 ranked students, Brendan Jose is studying a double degree in Engineering and Economics at UQ, planning on a career in engineering with a focus on problem solving. Owen Claxton’s double degree is in Science and Engineering at QUT, majoring in physics, electrical engineering and aerospace.  Owen is hoping it will lead him into an aeronautical career. Also receiving an OP2 are Michael Ciccotosto-Camp, Chris Davies, Georgia Green and Chelsea Toner.

We also spoke with some of our six OP3 ranked students to find out where their hard work is leading: Fabiana Ferri is studying Environmental Management at UQ then planning to move on to a Bachelor of Science, majoring in Biology.  She may pursue a teaching career. Wilson Tait is studying Science at UQ and planning to go on to complete a medical degree. Lauren Johnson is embarking on a Bachelor of Politics, Philosophy and Economics at UQ which she hopes will lead to a future working in International Aide.  Also receiving an OP3 are Jaden Pardo, Danielle Schick and Serena Yim. (pictured left: Fabiana Ferri, Owen Claxton, Oscar Smee, Lauren Johnson, Georgia Downs, Brendan Jose, Wilson Tait)

After many years of commitment and self-discipline, the Senior Class of 2016 have set themselves on the path to realising their aspirations for the future. We are extremely proud of their achievements and we wish them God’s blessings and provision for the years ahead.
