The 2019 QAHS Academy Awards, celebration held on Wednesday 23 October, was enjoyed by students, parents, families, friends and special guests. Once again, our students' achievements were acknowledged as exceptional and we certainly celebrated our world-class school status.
We are so grateful to have the opportunity to hold the event at the Southport Church of Christ Conference Centre, accommodating our growing QA community. The initial student feedback has highlighted how special it was to watch their peers receive awards (from Year 12 students), and Year 10 students have commented on the desire to 'get more involved' in competitions/CAS as they were able to see first-hand the successes of Year 11 & 12 students.
Congratulations to all students who were formally recognised at this special event for their remarkable accomplishments. A list of all award recipients is listed below.
We would particularly like to congratulate our 2019 Dux, Aydin Neighbour and Proxime Accessit, George Tian – incredible achievements in a school such as ours.
