Karly’s set her course

KARLY BARTRIM found out on school formal night that she would have entry into her preferred course - Health Science at Griffith University.

Ms Bartrim applied online with previous report cards demonstrating grades in the 80s and 90s; and an essay about her aspirations.

She won the only $3000 bursary awarded to a Tweed River High School student.

"After first year I plan to transfer into Nutrition and Dietetics, which has an ATAR of 96, and then I plan to finish that degree and hopefully will work in a large manufacturing company to develop products," she said.
