We have been absolutely delighted with the ATAR results of our 2021 graduates. The following data I am about to share with you is based on the 104 ATAR eligible students who have given permission for us to view their ATAR result:
- 2% of students received an ATAR of 99 and above
- 8% of students received an ATAR of 98 and above
- 20% of students received an ATAR of 95 and above
- 40% of students received an ATAR of 90 and above. This places them in the top 23.87% of the state.
We are also extremely proud of the achievements of our students who were involved in Vocational Education pathways or other alternative pathways last year. Some of these students were also undertaking ATAR studies.
- 18 students were awarded a Certificate II
- 26 students were awarded a Certificate III

Congratulations to the 2021 College Dux, Jasmine Armstrong. Jasmine was presented with two Queensland Certificate of Education Achievement Awards at the recent awards presentation.
- Highest Achievement by an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Student
- Distinguished Academic Achiever Award.
Jasmine has provided the following reflection and advice to our current students:
“My long-term goal is to specialise in cardiothoracic surgery, anaesthesiology or neurosurgery. I would like to give back to the community through working with organisations that provide services to those who would not otherwise be able to afford them.
“I have provisional entry into the Doctor of Medicine program at The University of Queensland. First, I’ll study for a degree in Health Sciences. My favourite subject was Mathematical Methods. I loved the problem-solving aspect; how I could rearrange and work a complex language down to a single solution.
Do your personal best; do not compare yourself to others because everyone has different strengths and there are many pathways to achieve your goals. Also choose subjects that interest you — you are more likely to achieve when you are engaged”.
Congratulations Jasmine! We are very proud of your achievements.
We also had two students who were awarded the Top Subject Achievement Award in the State in the areas of Study of Religion and Dance.
Congratulations to Isabella Deegan who is the recipient of the Samuel Griffiths Scholarship for Griffith University. Isabella is studying animation and this scholarship valued at $24 000 will provide wonderful financial support to her.
We had 98% of our students receive an offer from QTAC. The most popular areas of study were:
- Society and Culture
- Natural and Physical Sciences
- Creative Arts
- Management and Commerce.
We are so proud of the achievements of the Class of 2021 and look forward to hearing more about their post-MSM journey in future years.
