Bridie Hunter has been selected to participate in the St Margaret’s Global Exchange Program and will attend Ursulinenschule Hersel in Bornheim, Germany in Term 4 this year.

The program provides successful applicants with opportunities to participate in global citizenship in the context of school and family life at one of 11 schools in eight countries.

Bridie firmly believes, “If a job is worth doing, it’s worth doing well.” It certainly seems this life motto is paying off for the Year 10 student.

The aspiring doctor from Moree is a boarder at St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School in Ascot, Brisbane, where she is excelling academically. “I strive to achieve high results which are aided by the extensive academic support and opportunities available to St Margaret’s students,” said Bridie. “I have earned a full pocket award every semester and an academic honours award at speech night every year throughout my time at St Margaret’s.”

This extremely motivated student says she has always enjoyed learning and is strongly driven by high achievement in her academic studies.

“I put my best effort into all academic tasks. When I complete Year 12, I plan to go straight to university to study a Bachelor of Biomedical Science and then proceed to a Doctor of Medicine,” she said.

Bridie’s favourite subjects are German, Maths, Science and Visual Arts. “I specifically enjoy painting and drawing as it enables me to create something interesting and complex from a few simple tools,” said Bridie.
