Boyle is optimistic for new year

THE Year 12 Eidsvold State School students finished their final year of studies last week and Tate Boyle is looking forward to a fresh new year in 2018.

Tate has his sights set on a stable job.

"I'd like to get a job somewhere, maybe even work at Ergon Energy, in the trade of mechanical or fitting,” he said.

"I've put in for a few apprenticeships at ports in Gladstone and I'm currently awaiting to hear back from them.”

Tate said he would love to move to Gladstone.

Year 12 was no challenge for Tate who said it was Year 11 that proved challenging.

"It was pretty easy actually, I thought Year 11 was the hardest year, but I found Year 12 relatively easy,” Boyle said.

"I kind of breezed through it.”

Tate believes the transition from Year 11 to 12 is a positive one.

"It does prepare you for Year 12, it just sets you up to succeed,” he said.

"Everybody was well behaved and demonstrated leadership to all the other cohorts.”

Tate thanked the Eidsvold State School staff for all of their work this year.

"It was a good school, a small school but I like it small as everybody knows each other,” he said.
