Netball

Great to see the TAS Netball teams play their grading games on Tuesday night. What an excellent program – thanks to Mrs Robati, all the coaches and our enthusiastic parents cheering on our girls. It’s going to be a terrific season.

Newsreader success

Congratulations to Ellie Maccoll on her success last Saturday in the Cairns Young Newsreader Competition. Out of an impressive field of budding young newsreaders, Ellie won the WIN News/Mt Sheridan competition and $1000 for the school. She will be doing a week’s worth of work experience later this year at WIN. Well done Ellie.

Chess competition

It was great to see so many of our young students at the recent WRJ Chess competition. I found myself in deep concentration as 84 of our young Chess superstars thrust and parried with each other across the chess board. I’m loving the chess program at TAS, watching the students developing problem solving strategies that are so crucial to a strong education. The overall winner of the event was Marcus Carruthers (Year 6) even though he was put under pressure in a few of his games. Second went to Angela Xiang (Year 4) and third place was Joanna Chen (Year 4). Thanks Mr. Long.

World Vision fundraising

The WRJ Service Committee hosted a Casual Clothes Day raising funds for World Vision and other Young Round Square Service initiatives.  Students dressed up as a person, animal or object beginning with the first letter of their name.  What a great cause – thanks for being involved.

KBJ Prep Nursery Rhyme afternoon

What a wonderful afternoon at KBJ Prep class on Wednesday when our gorgeous preppies presented their modern adaptions to a variety of nursery rhymes in front of a parents and friends as they enjoyed a lovely tea party. I may have had 1 too many cupcakes. The ability of our preppies ot stand in front of an audience and perform their nursery rhymes was very impressive. Thanks Mrs Lade for your terrific work setting up this event.
