THE CLASS of 2023 have finished their high school studies and the students from Coolum State High School have once again donned full academic dress and were officially sent off at a graduation ceremony held at Twin Waters on Tuesday November 14.  

In the audience were their teachers, academic staff and their family and friends.  

Principal Troy Ascott said that the graduation was a truly special occasion for a special group of students.  

“The class of 2023 are special in many ways, most importantly because they are such a respectful and caring group of people. It’s hard to explain, in contrast to media reports, just how good today’s students are, and this group showed that they care for each other, for social issues and for using their future to make a mark in the world.”  

Mr Ascott also stated that the school had prepared the class as best as they could.  

“We have focused on creating good and well-rounded young men and women. The academic programs have obviously prepared students very well for their assessments, but I think it is the little extras that Coolum High is prepared to do that sets us apart… At the heart of everything though, it’s about creating good people with kind hearts. Everything stems from that.” 

Mr Ascott also stated that the graduating class have left some big shoes to fill for the next year 12 cohort.  

“The class of 2023 have really set a very high benchmark in the school. In particular, the student leaders have set a standard that I know has been seen by the other students and that I know they will be striving to follow. This is a very special group of students, and they are very well respected within the school community.”  
Most students are now eagerly awaiting the release of their ATAR scores which will come out in mid-December. Until then the class of 2023 is enjoying their time off from school life and anticipating the start of their next chapter!
