Congratulations Class of 2017

The St Columban’s College, Caboolture Class of 2017 have prospective futures ahead of them after completing their secondary education with a focus on critical thinking and jobs of the future.

With graduates receiving their end-of-year results, the Assistant Principal – Senior Phase Learning & Pathways, Kate Ruddy acknowledged the excellent outcomes and hard work of the students.

“It is wonderful to acknowledge the excellent results and the hard work of the students,” Assistant Principal, Kate Ruddy said. “They have performed very well and have set themselves up well for their next stage of university and/or further tertiary study.”

“The diverse pathway opportunities for our students means that they all have clear directions for their futures and a strong set of skills in both academic and vocational arenas that will make them strongly employable and set them up for future success.”

Meanwhile, the college Principal, Ann Rebgetz talked about the breadth and depth of opportunities the graduates are placed to take advantage of.

“These students are coming out to actually take that step forward and be really ready – they have skills to go into a multitude of pathways,” Principal Ann Rebgetz said in the video above.

“They’re entrepreneurial, they’re problem-solving, they’re critical-thinking, they’re team players, all of which they’ve gained through their certificate study at school, through their OP, through their school-based apprenticeship, through the fact they’re in a school that’s a national award winner.

“Congratulations to our staff who have been able to make this happen, to our parents for their support, to our industry partners for their incredible support and link, and to our community of Caboolture that always comes out to support St Columban’s,” Principal Rebgetz concluded.

While a number of graduates already have apprenticeships or traineeships, others await tertiary placement offers.
