Five BGS Class of 2017 graduates have been recognised at the Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) Achievement Awards for the top 32 students in the state. The Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) hosted the event at the State Library in South Bank.
Stuart Moss beat 28,000 students to achieve the highest result on the 2017 QCS Test and his fellow student Cheng Zhang was named the highest achieving international student on the statewide test.
BGS 2017 School Captain and dux Josh Grice, Louis Backstrom and Daniel Harness were named as Distinguished Academic Achievers.
A total of 33 BGS students made the Academic Commendation list for achieving Very High Achievements (VHAs) in the equivalent of at least six subjects, that is at least 24 semesters at VHA standard.
BGS topped the state for OP1-5 percentage (just under 60%) for schools with more than 30 OP students.
Congratulations to the BGS Class of 2017 and the staff who supported them.
