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.

and imaginative design concepts and ideas.
