Isis high school celebrates outstanding results
AS STUDENTS returned to Isis District State High School for the first time in 2015, former students continued to celebrate their outstanding results.
The efforts of dux Stacey Lindsay, captain Hayden Marvel and student Ellen Lindsay were rewarded in the best way possible as they each finished with an OP 1.
Isis High co-principal Brett Kavanagh congratulated the trio and said their high scores were well and truly deserved, as they had remained focused on their course of study for the past two years.
“Stacey, Hayden and Ellen were actively involved in the school’s Instrumental Music Program, sporting teams and many community service ventures,” Mr Kavanagh said.
Mr Kavanagh said all students from Isis High who had applied to continue their learning at university were offered places in the first round.
He said it was another outstanding achievement, as 90% of students received their first preference and the remaining were offered their second.
One student applied to New South Wales and was also offered their first preference.
Mr Kavanagh said he was delighted Isis High had continued to provide the opportunities for academic excellence, with students consistently performing strongly in the competitive OP 1–15 bands.
All three students will further their education at the University of Queensland in Brisbane.
Stacey Lindsay was accepted into her preferred course in engineering, while Hayden and Ellen Lindsay will study advanced science.
Apart from the trio’s outstanding results, a number of highly performing students completed university subjects and TAFE diploma subjects while completing their Year 12 studies.
Mr Kavanagh congratulated all senior graduates who achieved strong academic results, as well as those who were already working.
“It’s these opportunities and pathways that provide strong reasons why Isis District State High School can deliver quality education, with high expectations leading to preparing pathways,” Mr Kavanagh said.
