Additionally, 31 Queensland Lutheran school students in a group of 1073 Year 12 graduates received Certificates of Academic Commendation. They were awarded this honour for achieving Very High Achievements (VHAs) in the equivalent of at least six Authority subjects (i.e. at least 24 semesters at VHA standard).
Well done to all Year 12 students and their supporting family, friends and school community. No matter which path they take, learning at Lutheran schools is about preparing students for their life beyond the classroom.
