A bright Spark in the pool for swim­ming

Isis Town and Country - - SPORT -

MAK­ING a splash in the pool, Isis High stu­dent and school cap­tain Caleb Spark seems to have left it un­til the end of his school­ing to record his most sig­nif­i­cant achieve­ment.

The school prides it­self on sport­ing ex­cel­lence and Spark has added his name to the long list of sport­ing greats from the school.

In late Septem­ber, he rep­re­sented Queens­land at the Na­tional School Sport Com­bined Swim­ming Cham­pi­onships in Dar­win.

This event brought to­gether ap­prox­i­mately 700 of the best young swim­mers from across all eight states and ter­ri­to­ries of Aus­tralia to con­verge on the Ca­sua­r­ina Swim­ming Pool for five days of in­tense com­pe­ti­tion.

Spark per­formed with great dis­tinc­tion with plac­ings of 5th in the 200m In­di­vid­ual Med­ley, 8th 50m Breast­stroke, 6th 400m In­di­vid­ual Med­ley and a Bronze medal in the Med­ley re­lay.

These in­cred­i­ble swims place Spark amongst the top elite young Aus­tralian swim­mers, of which Isis High School is ex­ceed­ingly proud.

Such achieve­ments do not come without enor­mous sac­ri­fice and ded­i­ca­tion from both Spark and his ex­tremely proud fam­ily in meet­ing sig­nif­i­cant train­ing and car­ni­val com­mit­ments.

How­ever, such fine achieve­ments are tes­ti­mony to the hard work and the char­ac­ter of a fine young man who we wish all our best for the fu­ture.

The school main­tains a strong com­mit­ment to stu­dent leadership through a va­ri­ety of roles and en­cour­ages stu­dent par­tic­i­pa­tion in sport­ing events, phys­i­cal ex­er­cise and the devel­op­ment of pos­i­tive at­ti­tudes to com­pe­ti­tion and team­work.

There are sev­eral op­por­tu­ni­ties for stu­dent in­volve­ment of­fered at the school.

The school is a mem­ber of the North Burnett district for rep­re­sen­ta­tive sport.

Stu­dent par­tic­i­pa­tion is through sum­mer and win­ter tri­als.

Suc­cess­ful par­tic­i­pa­tion in these tri­als can re­sult in se­lec­tion to North Burnett teams for fur­ther in­volve­ment in Wide Bay trails for se­lec­tion.
