Se­nior lead­ers and school cap­tains to be an­nounced

Isis Town and Country - - News - – Prin­ci­pal Al­lan Cook

WHAT an ab­so­lute tri­umph the an­nual Arts Gala, He­roes and Vil­lains at the Isis Cul­tural Cen­tre was.

The evening was hosted by the school’s own hero and vil­lain, Red Dirt Dude and Sugar.

They pre­sented a va­ri­ety of acts rang­ing from drama with a strong so­cial mes­sage, dance, and vo­cal­ists and of course the school Band and Strings groups.

The evening was sup­ported by an ex­cel­lent art dis­play of stu­dent work, de­light­ful cater­ing from hos­pi­tal­ity stu­dents, and the P&C kept pa­trons re­freshed at the drinks bar.

A spe­cial men­tion must be made for the su­perb work of Per­form­ing Arts co-or­di­na­tor Me­gan Gilse­nan who so ef­fec­tively or­gan­ised the per­for­mance.

It was a fan­tas­tic evening and pro­vided an­other op­por­tu­nity for the com­mu­nity to feel very proud of their young peo­ple.

The process of de­ter­min­ing stu­dent lead­er­ship for 2016 con­tin­ues with the re­cent an­nounce­ment of our se­nior lead­ers for next year.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to those suc­cess­ful stu­dents and we look for­ward to your ser­vice to the school next year.

School cap­tains will be an­nounced at next week’s Awards Evening cel­e­bra­tion.

Se­nior lead­ers 2016 in­clude Bai­ley, Jordie, Lley­ton, Vic­tor, Thomas, Caleb, Si­mone, Billy, Thak­danai, Siob­han, Shay, Aleisha, Sa­man­tha, Georgia, Mol­lie and Laura.

Year 12 stu­dent Jas­min re­cently recorded a sig­nif­i­cant achieve­ment when she was an­nounced the Queens­land win­ner in the Year 11-12 sec­tion of the Na­tional His­tory Chal­lenge.

Jas­min sub­mit­ted a 3000-word es­say, Lead­er­ship and Lega­cies, that con­trasted Ma­hatma Gandhi and Sad­dam Hus­sein.

This aca­demic work re­ceived out­stand­ing re­views from the judges of this pres­ti­gious award.

The com­pe­ti­tion or­gan­iser also noted Jas­min must be taught by an ex­cel­lent his­tory teacher, and so the ex­per­tise and sup­port of Ms McCul­loch must be ac­knowl­edged.

Jas­min will re­ceive her State award at a re­cep­tion in Bris­bane in early Novem­ber at which she will at­tend with her par­ents and Ms McCul­loch.

A won­der­ful achieve­ment; con­grat­u­la­tions Jas­min!
