WELCOME FROM THE PRINCIPAL
Welcome students and parents to another year of Grace. A special welcome to new students and families joining us in Year 7 or other year levels. We trust many of our parents will join us for our Opening Services (9:15am Friday 28 January 2016 at Caboolture in the quadrangle and 9:00am Thursday 27 January 2016 at Rothwell in the Multi-purpose Centre) and for parent meetings over the next few weeks.

WELL DONE CLASS OF 2015
Congratulations to Grace College Year 12 students across both campuses on their hard work in their Senior studies and overall pleasing OP results for 2015. Grace students have exceeded the State average achievement by approximately 17% in the OP1-15 range taken across the whole cohort of Year 12 students. 99% of Grace students achieved a qualification: QCE, VET or School-Based Traineeship. This is very promising for university entrance (normally around 55% of Grace graduating students) and future career prospects. Thank you to all teachers for your diligent work with these students. Congratulations also to the students who achieved VET qualifications in addition to, or as an alternative to their OP. Of the 282 students in the cohort, 75.5% were OP-eligible, compared to the State, where about 54 % of students are OP-eligible. OP 1-5: 36 students (17 % of the OP-eligible cohort; 12.8% of the total cohort, compared with 11% for the state) OP 1-10: 110 students (52% of the OP-eligible cohort which is 39% of the total cohort compared to 21.6% for the State); OP 1-15: 169 students (79.3% of the OP-eligible cohort which is 60% of the total cohort compared to 43% for the State).
THE GRACE WAY…
We are proud of the many students at Grace College who have accomplished individual and team achievements this year through GRIT, GROWTH & GRACE.
NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE, GRACE IS FOR YOU
You may prefer the buzz at our Rothwell Campus or maybe the family feel and wide open spaces at our Caboolture Campus, established in 2008, appeals more to you? Both campuses offer the same high levels of teaching. Both campuses give you access to our highest standard sporting and performing arts programmes. Please give us a call, send an email at email@example.com or complete your details here to organise a private tour of any of our two campuses.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SECONDARY SCHOOL
There are a number of factors to consider when choosing the right school for your child. Grace College has produced a free guide for parents with helpful tips and information. Have a look at the report written by our very own Principal, Mrs Butler, here http://choosingasecondaryschool.com.au/ The guide provides not only a great starting point for parents entering into the world of secondary education options but gives current Grace College parents the assurance that they have made the right decision for their child’s education. We think Grace College ticks all the boxes when you are looking for quality secondary education.
