The 13-year school journey of more than 10,000 Queensland Year 12s attending independent schools comes to an end today (Friday 19 November) and we wish this extraordinary group of young people every success for the future.

Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ) Chief Executive Officer Christopher Mountford congratulated all Year 12s, particularly those students from independent schools, on successfully making it through a challenging final two years.

Mr Mountford said the class of 2021 would go down in history as a resilient cohort who had experienced two years of disruption by the pandemic.

“This cohort of senior students has had to navigate senior years that included studying from home, truncated sporting seasons, cancelled events and modified formals, graduation ceremonies and end-of-school celebrations,” he said.

“However, these young people have taken the twists and turns of this extraordinary time in their stride, displaying resilience and perseverance in their studies, and gratitude for the support of their schools, teachers, family and friends.”

QIS Parents Network Executive Officer Justine Cirocco wished the graduating class of 2021 and their number one support team – their families – a memorable final day.

“I’d like to give a big shout out to the parents and carers of this year’s graduates to acknowledge and thank them for the essential role they’ve played to help their children reach this pivotal milestone,” Ms Cirocco said, “I wish today’s graduating seniors every success as they embark on the next exciting chapter of their lives.”

Students will be able to access their final results online from Friday 17 December via QCAA.
