Each year, a very high percentage of our Year 12 graduates gain entry into their preferred university courses including Medicine, Pharmacy, Law, Occupational and Speech Therapies, Arts, Information Technology, Creative Arts, Engineering, Sciences, Education and Business, both at James Cook University here in Townsville and at other universities further afield.
Those students not wishing to pursue tertiary study may supplement their vocational studies by engaging in study with external providers such as the local TAFE. School-based apprenticeships and traineeships, and formal Work Experience programs are also considered an integral part of Senior Secondary study and the Secondary timetable is constructed to facilitate this flexibility.
Senior Secondary students play an important role in the life of the College providing leadership and support for younger students. Senior students are encouraged to set and maintain an excellent example for younger students to emulate and regular opportunities are provided for Senior students to interact with younger students, particularly those students in their first year in secondary school.
