OP SCORES: How Mackay region schools performed
THE resounding success of graduates across Mackay have illustrated the strengths exhibited by the region's future professional stars.
After OP-eligible students got wind of their results on Saturday, planning for their destined endeavours can now commence leading into a fruitful 2019.
Whitsunday Anglican School showcased remarkable results, soaring past the state average in terms of percentage of students earning an OP 1 to 3.
Among the 58 eligible students, 19 percent featured within this range, eclipsing the state average of 11.6 per cent, including five students among the cohort in Alexandra Wilson, Fariha Mazumder, Deepak Koshy, Danya Bushell and Megan Morris garnering OP 1s.
Whitsunday Anglican School Principal Maria McIvor said this year's OP results were a testament to the outstanding team effort by the Whitsunday community.
"Our success is always the result of meaningful relationships between students, staff and parents, supporting one another so our children can reach their full potential and be the best they can be," MrsMcIvor said.
"I am particularly thankful to our dedicated teachers who demonstrate, on a daily basis, their commitment to their students from Kindergarten to Year 12.
"We can all be proud of what we have accomplished together."
Elsewhere, Mackay Northern Beaches State High School had 99 per cent of the graduating cohort achieve an OP 1-20, with Amelia Crompton and Lauren McGrath the cream of the crop with OP 2s respectively.
St Catherine's Catholic College had 80 per cent of the OP cohort score between a 1 and 15, while at Glenden State High, all seven OP-eligible students received their Queensland Certificate of Education; with three off to university, two straight into the workforce and another two beginning apprenticeships.
Congratulations to all Mackay region graduates.
