"The understanding nature of Queenwood’s staff, and their will and ability to encourage you to do your absolute best is something that I will forever be grateful for."

 

Tilly is a Senior student at Queenwood. She is deftly balances her duties as a Sports Prefect, her Higher School Certificate and her commitment to the Australian Water Polo squad.

Trying to manage a high level sport while going into the final years of school seems like a near impossible task, but the extent that Queenwood has helped me achieve every aspect of what I want to do, to the best of my ability, is hard for me to comprehend. 

Waterpolo is a demanding sport that requires a lot of time out of your everyday life. Going into the year aware of how much school I had to miss for the sport was daunting, but along the track, purely thanks to Queenwood and the support of its staff, I completed year 11 with ease and I am now eager to go into my final year, knowing the school has my best interests at heart. 

The understanding nature of Queenwood’s staff, and their will and ability to encourage you to do your absolute best is something that I will forever be grateful for. Queenwood’s tutor group system is also something close to my heart as it provided me with a system that allowed a strong, family-like bond to form between myself, my tutor, and a handful of girls within my year.
