GLENNIE Achievement Report 2022


Q. What has been your parents’ response to your development as a student at Glennie? A.  I think my mum is simultaneously surprised and unfazed by my development as a student at Glennie, but mainly, I know she is very proud of my journey. She has always been aware that I am constantly looking for the next new challenge to overcome or goal to achieve, so when my schedule and commitments continued to increase, she supported all my decisions and became my number one supporter. Q. What does your immediate future hold for you? A.  The immediate future includes moving to Brisbane to study at the University of Queensland and attend college. Choosing what to study next year was something I struggled to figure out across the past year and I am now hoping to get in the Physiotherapy course at UQ. Q. What does it mean to be a Glennie girl?
