Filling out the script and waiting

NORTH Rockhampton State High School 2005 captain John Parr will find out this morning whether he has the marks to pursue his academic dreams.

The 18-year-old needs a high level OP (Overall Position) 2 to get into the pharmacy under graduate course at the University of Queensland in Brisbane.

John will be checking his results online from his computer in his family home at Rockyview instead of waiting until Monday when the results are posted out.

It was a busy year for John, mixing studying subjects such as math B, C, physics and chemistry with extra-curricular activities. "I had a lot of things on this year,'' he said.

"As well as school I was in (army) cadets and played the trombone in the North Rockhampton High School stage band and concert bands.

"In the September holidays the first week I was in Townsville on camp with cadets and then the second week I went to Sydney with cadets.

"I got so busy I had to have a diary to plan a week ahead. "But I made time for friends on the weekends and we went camping a couple of times.''

John Parr's friend and fellow North Rockhampton State High School student, John Quinn, 17, wants to study for a career in engineering at Central Queensland University.

He also studied math B, C, phsyics and chemistry.

John Quinn will be notified of his result this morning by SMS.

A report on how both students fared will be in the Monday edition of The Morning Bulletin.

If you received an OP 1 please contact news editor Frazer Pearce on Monday either via phone (4930?4282) or email (
