OP1 Recipients 2015
Ten hard-working graduates of 2015 achieved an OP1 across the grade and 14 boys achieved either an OP2 or OP3. A whopping 85% of the grade achieved an OP 1-10 while the entire class of 2015 at IGS received a Queensland Certificate of Education.
The result comes after a two-year focus on academic outcomes.
"Over the past two years, Ipswich Grammar School has implemented a whole school focus on improving the academic outcomes for every student," Deputy Headmaster Tony Dosen said.
"A targeted focus on pathway options for each boy through the senior phase of learning and a continued focus on improving Year 12 OP results have continued to reap outstanding results. In order to succeed this students have demonstrated the following capabilities: they are focused, committed, and adaptable, and above all balanced.All of these students took part in an array of extra-curricular activities and played and participated in a range of sports in a range of seasons from swimming, volleyball, rugby, basketball athletics they balance their school life with their academics.”
