Year 12 Spinifex State College student Naomi Spitzner-Lewis has been accepted into the Start Uni Now (SUN) program with the Central Queensland University.
She will be studying her first units in the Bachelor of Psychological Science whilst undertaking her Year 12 studies.
The Sun program is an initiative that allows high achieving students in Year 10, 11 and 12 to study units whilst in high school.
As an online student, Naomi will be required to access study resources and materials online as well as complete units that she will be able to use as credit towards a Bachelor degree.
“Naomi is the first Spinifex State College student to undertake University studies while at school” said Mrs Teresa Smith - Senior Schooling Officer at Spinifex Senior Campus.
Her achievement is another testament to the school’s continual high academic success rate.
Naomi has always felt passionate about helping and caring for others.
“I believe this course will go hand in hand with my values”, Miss Spitzer- Lewis said.
She really enjoys learning about how the human brain functions and is excited to learn more to further her knowledge within this area.
The SUN program will allow her to fast track her study for a future career in psychology.
