Dux Brandon Schulte has a way with numbers

BRANDON Schulte won the Year 11 maths C subject award for Brisbane School of Distance Education for being top of his class.

Leaving Mundubbera State School last year as dux of the school Brandon has continued his amazing academic achievements by being number one in his class again.

The awards ceremony was held at the Hillsong Auditorium in Mt Gravatt, Brisbane, where Brandon received a medal and certificate for the award.

Brandon's mother, Janette Schulte, said Brandon had a real flair for maths.

"I have watched him grow in his knowledge of mathematics, especially in maths C," she said.

"BSDE were supportive of Brandon, and they were always helpful when I phoned to find anything out."

Brandon also studied maths B, business communications and technology, information technology, physics and English at Burnett State College.

Brandon said he would like to study mathematics and computers.

"I guess I just take it in my stride," he said.

"As far as maths goes, I don't find it all that difficult.

"My mind just thinks that way."

Brandon's dad, Ross, said both Janette and he were amazed by the complexities of maths C.

"Brandon showed us his homework assignments and the detail involved in the workings was so intricate," he said.

"We are very proud of our son and we wish him well for Year 12 and all of his future studies."

The Schulte family would like to thank Mr Balshaw and Mrs Kahn for the effort they have always afforded their son, Brandon.
