Isis high school cel­e­brates out­stand­ing re­sults

Isis Town and Country - - News -

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.
