Bridie Shooter has capped off a brilliant five years at Scots PGC after being named Dux at the College’s annual speech day celebration.

The prestigious academic title was a just reward after Bridie managed to top every single subject she studied. Amongst multiple individual subject prizes, she was also awarded a Bond University Collegiate Scholarship, which will enable her to study Law at university next year.

Following in the footsteps of her older brother and sister, Bridie commenced at SCOTS PGC in 2015, as a Year 8 student. She has flourished making the most of all opportunities at the College. As a Senior this year, Bridie actively contributed to the leadership of the College in her capacity as a College Prefect. She also captained the College Cattle Club and won numerous awards for parading and judging throughout her time at SCOTS PGC. When Bridie is not studying, she is supporting her favourite local rugby league team, the Wattles Warriors in the neighbouring town of Clifton.

An avid supporter, Bridie also played league tag for the club in recent times. “It’s important to balance your study time and allow yourself to have some fun too,” says Bridie when asked about her overall approach to achieving academic excellence. Her advice to upcoming Senior students is to work hard and also to seek the help of your teachers — “Achieving great results is a team effort and our teachers are here to support us,” she said.
