Congratulations Class of 2016

John Paul College congratulates students from the Class of 2016 who have achieved outstanding academic results.

Featured in the results were seven students who achieved an OP1 – more than double the state percentage. An additional six students achieved OP1 equivalence when university bonus points are added. Over a quarter of the cohort received an OP between 1-5.

Results in the Queensland Core Skills Tests (QCST) were equally outstanding with A and B grades above state percentages.






  • JPC and State percentages include all OP eligible candidates 

Headmaster, Norm Kerley congratulated the cohort.

“These results are a great reflection of the hard work of our students and the support they received from both their teachers and parents,” he said.

The College was especially delighted to learn that 85% of students received their first or second QTAC preference during the major offer round.

“This is a fantastic result as we asked our students to dream big when making their six ranked choices,” he said.

The graduating students who attended the College from Preschool to Year 12 produced particularly pleasing results. Of the almost 22 % of students from the Class of 2016 who completed their entire education at the College, 10 % received an OP1.

The College provides multiple pathways to cater for the career aspirations, interests and abilities of every student.

“We were equally delighted to learn that a number of students have won highly competitive apprenticeships and traineeships since graduating.  The ultimate measure of success for any school is seeing graduates attaining their preferred higher education or career pathway,” he said.
