It gives me great pleasure to share the academic results of our Class of 2019 with our community.
As our final graduating cohort in Queensland to be issued with an OP, our 2019 Seniors have done themselves, the College and their families proud, with improvements recorded across every domain. This year’s results once again place BBC among the top performing academic schools in the State.
I congratulate the Class of 2019 on their results, which are a credit to their hard work and steadfast commitment to their studies. The College also acknowledges the important partnership with parents and guardians and thanks them for the invaluable role they have played in supporting their sons through their years of schooling.
Equally, it is appropriate to acknowledge our committed teaching staff who have educated, inspired, engaged and challenged our graduating class throughout their BBC journey to achieve their best. Notwithstanding their commendable OP results, it is also important to recognise the achievements of our Class of 2019 that are not measured by a number.
Achievements both inside and outside the classroom have abounded, across academic, sporting, cultural, leadership and service pursuits.
As leaders of the College in 2019, our Seniors have fully participated in College life with a sense of enthusiasm and purpose. During the year, a group of four students travelled to Hong Kong to take part in an International Mathematic Modelling Challenge, where they were recognised as one of the top five teams in the world with a Meritorious Achievement Award. The Class of 2019 have overseen three GPS Premierships/Championships this year, represented their state and country on the sporting field, composed works performed by the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, helped secure three World Championships in robotics, volunteered in numbers to serve and assist those in need, to name but a few highlights.
They have also demonstrated fine leadership attributes; particularly during a year in which we moved to a portfolio model of leadership that has seen our seniors model inclusive student leadership and citizenship for a range of boys who will become our future leaders.
To the Class of 2019, thank you. You have set the bar high. We are proud of your contribution and the men you have become. You are BBC Gentlemen of Honour, who now enter the world with the confidence, courage, compassion and conviction to live meaningful and purposeful lives.
Be confident that the education you have received at BBC has prepared you well to thrive and succeed in higher education and in your chosen careers, and our best wishes are with you as you embark on this next chapter.
