Maibry Wragge Memorial Award

Whitsunday Anglican School Old Scholar Ryan Olsen has attained the highest result in Queensland for the Trinity College London Professional Certificate in Communication Skills examinations.

As a result, the class of 2017 graduate will be recognised for his achievement at the 72nd annual Barbara Sisley Awards Ceremony where he will be awarded the annual Maibry Wragge Memorial Award for 2017.

Ryan, who is currently studying a double degree of a Bachelor of Engineering (Majoring in Mechatronics) and Information Technology (Majoring in Computer Science) at QUT in Brisbane, said he was surprised to have received the highest result in Queensland and credited his success to his teacher Mrs Sally Eales.

“The skills I have learnt from Mrs Eales are invaluable and are benefitting me currently at University and will continue to benefit me in competitions and other activities I plan to take part in while studying at QUT,” he said.

Whitsunday Anglican School Principal Mrs Maria McIvor said it was great to see Ryan continue to be recognised for the hard work and effort he put in during his final year at Whitsunday Anglican School.

“Ryan was one of six of our OP 1 recipients and was also a Peter Doherty Award recipient last year so it is no surprise to me that he is again excelling academically and being recognised for his achievements,” she said.

“Mrs Eales has been a teacher at Whitsunday Anglican School for over 20 years and continues to give students like Ryan the support and knowledge they need to unlock their full potential.”

The 72nd annual Barbara Sisley Awards Ceremony will be held on Saturday 9 June 2018 at Parliament House in Brisbane.
