A bright Spark in the pool for swimming
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.
