Learning. Believing. Achieving – Edition 2, Term 3

Date: August 7, 2018    Posted by: Alana Ripepi

TAS is a school where there is always something happening! I love seeing so many of our students involved in some of the opportunities made available to them.

Peter Pan

What an amazing two nights of performance! To almost sold-out audiences on both nights, our thespians gave a cracking rendition of Peter Pan, although one of the littlies, in a very serious voice, did tell me that Captain Hook was a bit scary, even though she knew he was a high school boy really! I am so grateful to our TAS community for your positive support of our staff and students from this year’s production. Thanks to Ms Saunders, Ms Radcliff and all the staff and parents who helped out, our tech and backstage crew, and of course to the incredibly talented cast. The bar height has now been set!


Kara P presentation

I happened to wander into a terrific presentation to our younger students in WRJ from our senior Biology and Marine Studies teacher, Ms Pylypiuk. In a previous career Ms Pylypiuk worked in Vancouver on Orca research projects in her role as a marine scientist. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience working closely with these amazing animals and the students were very engaged and interested in her presentation. Thanks Ms P.  


Great to see TAS Swimming at the Gordonvale pool last weekend for the short course regional championships. Terrific results all round with many personal bests. TAS Swimming won the regional championships for the third consecutive year, with seven age champions (Cassidy Dore, James Harpley, Leah Snelling, Joanna Chen, Thomas Chen, Jacinta Kome, Ella Goddard), four FNQ record-breakers (Leah Snelling, Ella Goddard, Flynn Martin, Harriet Grant), the FNQ swimmer of the year (Ella Goddard), and numerous other awards recipients. A truly amazing weekend.


Great to meet up with some of the graduates from 1998. We had an enjoyable afternoon touring the campus and then afternoon refreshments on the roof of the STEM building. Some wonderful stories and genuine fondness for their school days at TAS. They were very interested to hear that Mr Tippet and Mr. Springall were still going strong!


The Fowler Cup on Sunday was another terrific sporting event. Out Netball teams played many games, but did so with positivity and good cheer. Thanks to our Netball coaches, Elisa and Rachel and our wonderful mums and dads who spent the day cheering on the mighty TAS Topaz and TAS Jade teams.
