School meets stated aims

IPSWICH State High School principal Simon Riley is delighted to see pupils succeeding in their chosen path, whatever that may be.

"It's not just about football at Ipswich High," he said.

"We've done very well in a short space of time but the focus is always on the student. "If a student wants to become a hairdresser that means helping them get into hairdressing, if the goal is to go to uni then it is our job to help get them into uni.

"We are putting others into full-time apprenticeships.

"Now, if a football player wants to play for an NRL club, we are also able to provide that pathway.

"We're looking forward to bigger and better things next year."
