Congratulations Hugo van Buuren, 2016 School Vice-Captain, who has been awarded the prestigious TJ Ryan Memorial Medal and Scholarship. The award, presented by Education Queensland, is highly selective with no more than ten being issued each year across the state and non-state sector.
The award recognises Hugo’s outstanding academic achievements and superior leadership qualities that were demonstrated through his Year 12 studies. During his time at Churchie, Hugo excelled academically, demonstrated his leadership qualities as School Vice-Captain, contributed significantly to co-curricular pursuits (particularly music) and gave of himself to help others through a variety of service activities.
TJ Ryan awardees receive up to $10,000 to support their undergraduate study. Hugo is currently studying a Bachelor of Science with a concurrent Diploma of Music at the University of Melbourne.
The last time a Churchie student received the TJ Ryan medal was in 2008. It is one of Queensland’s most significant scholarship awards. We congratulate Hugo and wish him well for his future endeavours.
Hugo presented to the 2017 Year 12 students at the OP 1 Assembly in Term 1, 2017.
