​Jayden Webster received the Highest Achievement by an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Student award

This award is for the highest-achieving Aboriginal student or Torres Strait Islander student awarded the QCE. Students were shortlisted based on their achievements in the following areas:
•Highest tertiary entrance rank based on a profile of information, including OP ranking and QCS Test score
• Number of VHAs in Authority subjects
• QCE Advanced learning achievements
• Other achievement information

The annual Queensland Certificate of Education (QCE) Achievement Awards recognise and reward Queensland’s top-performing Year 12 students for outstanding academic achievement in their senior school studies. The 34 award winners attended 23 different State, Catholic and Independent schools. Their results put them ahead of more than 50,000 of their peers. What makes the QCE Achievement Awards unique is that it is possible for a student to be recognised regardless of their approach to senior schooling. Among the award winners are students who chose a traditional school program and those who combined school subjects with university courses, vocational studies or other types of learning. They are united by having achieved to an exceptionally high level on a state-wide basis and against a variety of measures.

Jayden's career goal is to study a Bachelor of Advanced Science at the University of Queensland in a research field involving physics or chemistry.
Jayden said his favourite subject in Year 12 was Chemistry and Physics and also enjoyed Graphics as the class was more relaxed and it allowed him to explore creative and imaginative design concepts and ideas.
"My teachers, friends and family have all inspired me and motivated me to do well.” Jayden Webster.
