Celebrating Statewide Success
Old Collegian and 2020 Dux of the College, Anneka Golding was awarded the QCAA subject achievement commendation for Psychology, the highest psychology result in Queensland.
The certificates of academic commendation are awarded to Year 12 graduates for achieving an A in at least six general subjects with Anneka being awarded for her participation in Biology, Chemistry, English, General Mathematics, Modern History and Psychology.
Anneka said “I was overwhelmed to see that I had scored the highest result in Queensland in Psychology. I thank my teachers who have always been very supportive and even more so in my final years when I asked endless questions. The College empowered me to find my own way, learn independently and be resilient, skills that have come in very useful as I continue my studies.”
The new pathway for Anneka is studying a dual degree in Nursing and Midwifery at the University of Queensland. Currently on her midwifery placement, Anneka considers it a real privilege to be there for families during one of their most special life moments.
Anneka’s success is a wonderful combination of her hard work and commitment and the great work of the College’s Psychology teaching staff administering and teaching the subject. At St John’s we provide every student with the opportunity to succeed at the very highest level, equipping them for the challenges of the future.
Looking ahead, Anneka would ideally like to practice nursing and midwifery overseas, when possible, as the demand for nurses and midwives is worldwide.
