A gen­er­ous, hum­ble su­per­fish

Isis Town and Country - - Australia Day -

JAYLEE is a stu­dent of the Childers Pri­mary School and is an ex­cel­lent role model and am­bas­sador for the school.

Jaylee has had to over­come some sig­nif­i­cant per­sonal chal­lenges in her young life and she has done this with ma­tu­rity be­yond her years.

Jaylee has pre­vi­ously achieved high hon­ours with the Childers Swim­ming Club but it was as a state school stu­dent rep­re­sent­ing Queens­land that she achieved in­cred­i­ble re­sults in 2015.

Jaylee com­peted in the Pa­cific Pri­mary School Games, held in Ade­laide, at the end of Novem­ber 2015, rep­re­sent­ing Queens­land. This fol­lowed her ex­cel­lent achieve­ments at the state ti­tles where she rep­re­sented the Wide Bay.

Rep­re­sent­ing Queens­land, she achieved two sil­ver medals and two bronze medals. Jaylee had an out­stand­ing meet, re­turn­ing with 4x50m and 4x100m freestyle re­lays and bronze medals in 4x50m and 4x100m med­ley re­lays. She also recorded per­sonal best times and top-10 fin­ishes in her in­di­vid­ual 50m freestyle and 100m freestyle, fin­ish­ing ninth.

Her achieve­ments speak vol­umes about her com­mit­ment and work ethic. Her achieve­ments are only matched by her hu­mil­ity, gen­eros­ity and will­ing­ness to share her suc­cess with her friends and peers.
