Swimming with success over the holidays
NOOSA District State High School 2017 Student Council Leader Chandler Kamradt has not stopped for a break since school ended for the holidays, as he has kept very busy working towards completing a number of very worthwhile goals.
Chandler is currently undertaking a Certificate II course in sport and recreation and diving as well as a Level Three Police Citizens Youth Club (PCYC) Leadership Course.
Chandler, with 15 other Sunshine Coast students, including two from NDSHS, are all completing the Certificate II in Sports and Recreation at Mooloolaba.
Most training was completed in a swimming pool, before the students were afforded the opportunity to experience an open water dive around the HMAS Brisbane wreck off Mooloolaba.
"Diving is the best experience ever," Chandler said.
Chandler finishes his PCYC leadership training this Friday, which includes a week long camp at Bornhoffen, New South Wales and a solo camp tonight.
Chandler will be a qualified PCYC coach with the successful completion of the course and will be required to start a youth program for the PCYC next year.
An undertaking Chandler took on with the PCYC during the September school holidays this year, involved Chandler, along with other volunteers, assisting a rural Cambodian village with building houses and teaching English.
"I hope to do the same thing in Cambodia again next year," Chandler said.
Chandler also plans to complete a Certificate II in Rural Fire Service through NDSHS next year.
Chandler will no doubt have a busy, very productive and successful 2017.
