May we present our beautiful Year 12 Graduates of 2018.
“It takes a village to raise a child” –African proverb
It is certainly the case with these local kids. The community should be proud to have such wonderful children navigating their way into adulthood. They are all an asset to our ‘village’.
These young adults are determined, bright and travel happy! They should be proud of themselves for their efforts throughout their schooling and excited to have the world at their feet! We wish you all the best with your future endeavours.
The students who graduated are:
Emily from St Patrick’s College in Gympie, as College Captain. Emily plans to move to Brisbane next year to live on campus at Cromwell College at University of Queensland to hopefully study a Bachelor of Commerce.
Emily says, “Thanks to Mum and Dad. The experiences I’ve had and the opportunities I’ve been given would never have been possible without them.” Emily is pictured with formal partner Jack McPherson.
Shakirra from Gympie State High School, as School Vice Captain. Next year she is planning on moving to Brisbane to be closer to university to study Biomedical Science.
She is pictured here at her formal with Rory Dennis.
Lauren of Gympie State High School. Lauren is keeping her options open in regards to further study, but is sure to excel in anything she chooses!
Here she is pictured on her way to the formal.

Kyani, from Gympie State High School, has her Certificate III in Hospitality, and is still deciding where her heart will take her in regards to further education. For now, she will continue to work hard, to be able to travel.
Kyani would like to thank, “…Mum and Dad for giving me the necessary needs for school and encouraging me.”
Dylan, from James Nash State High School, will embark on a gap year (of sorts!). He is planning on relocating to Brisbane to attend university. He is still undecided as to what he will be studying, but is interested in pursuing a teacher’s degree (due to his influential teachers at Rainbow Beach Primary School, perhaps).
Dylan is pictured with his proud mum, Linda.
Hannah of James Nash High School, obtained a Certificate II in Workplace Practices and Certificate III in Tourism. She is excited to be heading out West to start work, full-time on a cattle station in the new year. Hannah is pictured here with her formal ‘partner in crime’, Braden Gibson.

Cody from St Patrick’s College plans to pursue an electrical or plumbing trade certificate. Generally though, Cody would just like to “keep having fun”, and says “thanks to my family for getting me through school”.
Kayla, from Victory College Gympie, plans to study a Bachelor of Aviation at Griffith University in Brisbane. Her goal is to earn her pilot’s licence and become a commercial pilot for Qantas. Kayla has already completed her first solo flight at Sunshine Coast Flight Training Centre and looks forward to pursuing her career.
After attending Grade 7 in Rainbow Beach State School, Crystalrose graduated from Gympie State High School. She says “I don’t really have any particular goals at the moment. I’m planning after school to work for as long as possible and save up to travel.” She plans to travel Australia and hopefully Europe. You’ll see Crystalrose in the Pharmacy.

A Tin Can Bay School student and Year 10 Dux, Kaitlyn completed Year 12 at Gympie State High School.
Kaitlyn’s gap year will be spent working at Arcobalenos on the Beach and travelling. She has been accepted for a volunteer trip to Costa Rica – whether her Mum agrees to that is yet to be decided!
In 2020, university and a nursing degree are the direction Kaitlyn has planned.
