Our prestigious 2021 Academy Awards celebration event was held on Wednesday 13 October at the Southport Church of Christ and livestreamed to our community. The event celebrated our students' extraordinary achievements and showcased the breadth of talent at QAHS.
Research suggests celebrating achievements increases our confidence, inspires others, helps us develop a success mindset and boosts positive emotion (Seligman, 2011). Our QAHS community certainly celebrated our world-class school status with many inspirational achievements.
We are so grateful to have the opportunity to share the celebration both in person and via livestream with our QA community. The link to our full 2021 Academy Awards ceremony is here.
For the first time this year, both Year 10 and Year 11 students were awarded Global Learner awards, valuing personal and academic excellence, grit and community. This year the largest number of academic awards were presented to our Year 12 students, representing the pinnacle of their academic achievement throughout their IB journey. Congratulations to all students who were formally recognised at this special event for their remarkable accomplishments.
A list of all awards recipients is listed below.
We would particularly like to congratulate our 2021 Academy Optimus, or 'School's best student', Sebin Lee.
Our 'Academy Optimus' is awarded to our top student, calculated on all fullest and latest examination results and coursework at the end of Term 3. Our 2021 QAHS Dux and Proxime Accessit (runner up to the Dux) will be announced in January after the release of the final IB results (and re-marking of examinations).
We thank our community for celebrating the many accomplishments of our students this year.
