Great re­sults for Isis High school stu­dents

Isis Town and Country - - News -

ISIS High Se­niors of 2015 have main­tained an en­vi­able record of en­try to univer­sity cour­ses with the re­cent re­lease of ter­tiary study of­fers to stu­dents.

Of the Isis High 2015 Se­niors who ap­plied to com­plete a univer­sity course, all but one have re­ceived an of­fer in the first round, with more than 70% of those stu­dents ob­tain­ing their first pref­er­ence of course (and 90% first or sec­ond).

School prin­ci­pal Al­lan Cook was very pleased and said the school helped to pre­pare stu­dents to ac­cess their pre­ferred op­tions for fur­ther study af­ter school and was proud of their achieve­ments.

School Cap­tain and Dux Thomas Well­don ob­tained his sec­ond pref­er­ence of a Bach­e­lor of Phys­io­ther­apy (Hon­ours) at Cen­tral Queens­land Univer­sity (CQU) af­ter he also ob­tained the school’s high­est Over­all Po­si­tion (OP) Score of 3.

Other high achiev­ers, Josh Krieger (OP3) and Jas­min Evans (OP4), both re­ceived their first pref­er­ences with Josh head­ing to the Univer­sity of Queens­land in Bris­bane to study Bach­e­lor of Phar­macy (Hon­ours), while Jas­min will also head south to the Queens­land Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy (QUT) to study for a Bach­e­lor of Jour­nal­ism.

School Cap­tains Ri­ley Webb ob­tained her first pref­er­ence of Bach­e­lor of Gaming and In­ter­ac­tive En­ter­tain­ment at Queens­land Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy and Coby Gibbs will be head­ing to Townsville to study for a Bach­e­lor of Phys­io­ther­apy at James Cook Univer­sity in Townsville, while Vanessa McIn­tyre is pur­su­ing vo­ca­tional train­ing.

Emily Par­sons saw her first pref­er­ence re­alised of Bach­e­lor of Ed­u­ca­tion at CQU and will be joined in the course by fel­low stu­dents with their first pref­er­ence, Sa­man­tha Roberts, Kate­lyn Gra­ham, Lau­ren Faith­full and Cale Arnold.

A num­ber of other Isis High se­niors not elect­ing to em­bark on fur­ther study have been suc­cess­ful in gain­ing ap­pren­tice­ships, trainee­ships and full-time em­ploy­ment.

In con­grat­u­lat­ing the 2015 Se­niors on their pos­i­tive achieve­ments, Mr Cook said it was pleas­ing the com­mu­nity could con­tinue to have strong con­fi­dence in their lo­cal high school for pre­par­ing stu­dents well for path­ways to fu­ture ca­reers.
