The Senior Class of 2021 have achieved outstanding results attracting highly sought offers from universities, Defence Force, Vocational Education and Training providers and employers.

From the 40 percent seeking university entry, 2021 Seniors Grace Crow and Chloe Coombe topped TCC’s ATAR results achieving an impressive 99.65 and 99.60 respectively, placing them amongst Queensland’s top students.

Grace and Chloe led a strong field of peers, with close to 30 percent of TCC ATAR students achieving a score above 90, opening up university entry across a full breadth of choices.

Students have been offered placements in Education, Engineering, Medicine, Defence, Veterinary Science, Law, Allied Health, Bio Medical Science, Architecture, Science, Information Technologies, Humanities, Design and more.

Principal Mr Alexander said it’s very rewarding as educators to see students achieving their education goals to pursue their vocations on the strength of what is learnt in the classrooms.

“They’re creating exciting futures for themselves. 6 students have been offered places in Medicine, one of the most difficult courses to gain entry, five of which are in regional centres in Queensland, 3 have been offered the Engineering Co-Op course with CQUniversity and one of our students has been offered a position in the Airforce at the Australian Defence Force Academy which is one of only 50 positions offered across Australia,” Mr Alexander said.

60 percent of the Senior Class moved into Vocational Education, Training and Employment across an exciting range of industries including Mining, Industrial Machinery, Building and Construction, Auto Electrical, Disability services, Childcare, Health, Beauty, Fitness, Hospitality and Retail with many continuing apprenticeships commenced whilst at school.

Employers including Glencore, Hasting Deerings, BHP, Defence Force, Regional and Shire Councils, local industries and small businesses offered TCC 2021 graduates a range of apprenticeships, traineeships and employment opportunities. Several students were also offered NRL contracts.

Rob Alexander said the college community is proud of Senior Class of 2021 and what they have achieved in scope of opportunity, reflective of the depth and breadth of our student population.

“These wonderful and diverse opportunities spring from the great Catholic education partnership formed between students, the school and parents commencing on the first day students arrive which has at its centre the person of Jesus Christ inviting us to live life in all its fullness,” he said.

“Christ’s invitation encourages us to be our best, to discover and seek our full potential just like our Senior Class of 2021” he said.
