Star student gives college top marks

FINISHING school is just the start of exciting things to come for former Year 12 student Jordan Young.

While there is no word yet on his OP score, his mother Janine confirmed Jordan has achieved top marks in all his five subjects, achieving five VHAs.

Jordan completed his senior studies through the Brisbane School of Distance Education and while the school was very helpful, Janine said it was the extra help from Marist College Emerald that helped Jordan achieve his top marks.

"They (Marist College) have just been there for him," she said.

"They have lent equipment, books and let him use the laboratory.

"We couldn't have done it without them, they have been brilliant, supportive and very hospitable."

Janine thanked the science faculty and principal for their help and expressed particular gratitude to the college's science teacher Steve Melody.

"Steve discussed things with Jordan, he was so generous with his time and always there to help," she said.

Jordan has decided to defer for a year though he plans on studying medicine and molecular biology at university in the future.

Jordan is now turning his attention to getting a holiday job and his driver's licence.

"He is writing his CV, learning to drive and getting prepared for holidays," Janine said.
