Grammar's Georgia shocked
FOR a 17-year-old, Georgia Sullivan has her sights set in the right direction.
Receiving an OP of 1 last year, the perfect result saw her receive a scholarship at CQUniversity which she wasn't expecting.
“I was really shocked actually because I had it engrained in my mind that in order to get an OP of 1 you needed to take science-based subjects and maths subjects,” the former Rockhampton Grammar student said.
“I did drama and graphics and business subjects so I didn't think I'd get a one.”
Rockhampton Grammar School, performed as one of the best in the State as part of the Year 12 OP Outcomes released by Queensland Studies Authorities this week.
Now undertaking a Bachelor of Business and Communications hoping to major in Marketing, the Rocky teen said uni was a lot different, and credits her school teachers for the work they put in.
“It was a great school and you realise how hard your teachers try to help you once you're at uni, because you have to do it yourself there,” Georgia said.
Principal Dr Philip Moulds said he was pleased with his students' achievements.
“This gives them the best opportunity to pursue their future careers in what they want to do and shows the great quality of our students and teachers,” Dr Moulds said.
And with Georgia's great results, the world is now her oyster, with many opportunities lined up for her.
“I think I'd like to get into public relations eventually and I want to travel as well.”
