Great results for Isis High school students
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.
ISIS PRIDE: A new year and good luck to all students.
