YEAR 12 STUDENTS ACHIEVE OUTSTANDING OP RESULTS
The Lakes College’s 2016 graduating class of Year 12 students have achieved outstanding OP results, affirming the College’s mission to provide excellence in education, and reflecting our high quality of teaching.
This achievement was highlighted in an article in The Courier Mail in February 2017, when The Lakes College were recognised as one of Queensland’s Top 10 OP 1-5 schools for 2016.
Queensland's Top 10 OP 1-5 Schools for 2016 were: 1) Brisbane Grammar School, 2) Brisbane Boys' College, 3) St Joseph's College Gregory Terrace, 4) St Aidan's Anglican Girls' School, 5) Anglican Church Grammar School, 6) Brisbane State High School, 7) Somerville House, 8) Brisbane Girls Grammar School, 9) Clayfield College, 10) The Lakes College.
Strong OP results do not happen by chance at The Lakes College. Students at the College are subject to a level of academic support that is second to none. Whether it be the ease through which all staff are accessible, to the range of programs available, or our comprehensive QCS Program, students find themselves within a strong, academic environment conducive to success.
While we recognise our students who achieved such strong OP scores, an excellent education incorporates both academic success and a focus on exposing young people to opportunity and broadening their horizons. The Lakes College remains committed to strong academic management and will continue to support those students who choose alternative pathways to tertiary education; this reflects the diversity of our student body and the College’s commitment to personalising each student’s learning pathway.
As a Ministry of the Uniting Church, The Lakes College provides a foundation for the development of Christian values, where students can experience the benefits of a supportive Christ-centred community. Our ministry enhances the development of Christian identity and ethos through a program of Spiritual Development, worship, pastoral care and service.
Spiritual Development at The Lakes College is viewed as the nurture, growth, and enhancement of a lived faith. In a Uniting Church school, Spiritual Development encompasses intentional processes where students are guided in ways of living their Christian faith. Spiritual Development includes daily Devotions, which are conducted by the Classroom or Pastoral Care teacher, weekly Chapel Services which are attended by all students, and weekly Spiritual Development lessons which are offered by the College Chaplain or Classroom Teacher in consultation with the Chaplain.
