Congratulations to Year 11 student Ryan Best for his amazing efforts and commitment to his studies in Engineering Technology this year. Ryan has impressively, attained A level results on all pieces of assessment and so has been awarded with the QUT Dean’s Award for Engineering Technology. This prize is awarded to the overall top achievers in each year level of Senior Engineering Technology at Hillbrook. Along with receiving a certificate of recognition, Ryan received a $50 JB Hi-Fi gift card. Kirby Fahy is the recipient of the Year 12 award, a $100 gift voucher, for finishing the course at Hillbrook with incredible academic results (VHA 8). She has demonstrated A levels of achievement on all pieces of assessment, in all criteria and impressively, was the recipient of the Year 11 award last year, for her brilliant academic results! Kirby should be extremely proud of her achievements and acknowledged for her commitment to her studies. We wish her all the best with her intended dual degree (Maths/Science) at UQ next year. Also in Year 12, Finn Pohlner has been recognised for his high results over the whole 2-year course. Finn is on track (OP pending… fingers crossed) to be accepted into a dual degree – Engineering/Industrial Design at QUT next year. This is very fitting given his exit results in Senior Graphics (VHA 4), Engineering (HA10) and Technology Studies (VHA 4) at Hillbrook. If successful, Finn will receive The QUT Dean’s Award, a $3000 study stipend as a result of his high school Engineering achievements. Congratulations to all three students on their successes in Engineering Technology and we thank them for their dedication and enthusiasm for the subject.
