2022 College Vice-Captain, Rhys Jenkins has been awarded Dux of St Patrick's College for 2022 as part of a High Achievers Assembly held before the whole school last week.
Rhys's ATAR of 99.85 placed him amongst the top 99 year 12 students in Queensland out of more than 27,000 students who received an ATAR. Rhys has accepted an offer at UQ to enrol in their Doctor of Medicine (MD). As a result of his outstanding achievements, Rhys was awarded a Vice Chancellor's scholarship of $24,000, which he will use towards the cost of completing his degree.
In his address to the College Rhys stated, “I'd like to express my gratitude for the high-quality education I have received at St Patrick's. A fantastic quality about this school is that they acknowledge and emphasise individual differences and provide an exceptionally diversified curriculum which caters to varying interests. Because of this, success comes down to the attitude of the individual. Ultimately, it is up to you, and only you, to set your own expectations and goals and decide how hard you are willing to work to achieve them."
The following students were also recognised for an ATAR above 95, 2022 College Captains, Grace Bekker and Kaitlyn Collyer, Vice-Captain Alex Stahl, and Saif Malek.
In 2022 St Patrick's had its highest number of students successfully completing a Vocational Education Qualification, including some students obtaining up to a Certificate IV level.
Congratulations students on "letting your light shine".
