Learning. Believing. Achieving – Term 1 Week 4

Date: February 17, 2017    Posted by: Sue Wicks

Welcome to our new format! Instead of the emails I have been sending out on Fridays, we are trialling using a web log instead. The intent is to keep our community up-to-date with some of the activities going on at TAS.

WRJ Year 3

Thanks to Ms Thomas, Ms Milligan and the Year 3 students for inviting me to their classrooms to discuss decision-making, organisation hierarchy and democracy with the students. The students asked some terrific questions and displayed a level of understanding that was quite sophisticated for children of that age. They were very interested in the structure of the Board of Directors, how the Senior Leadership Team made decisions, and how does democracy work when people don’t agree on a decision. I will need to do some preparation and pre-reading before I next visit the Year 3 classroom!

KBJ Assembly

It was great to attend the KBJ Assembly on Friday afternoon. Congratulations to all those who received awards, such as Eleanor Oates and Madeline Collins (with their parents Alana, Laura and Matt)

Reading to Preps

I was lucky enough to get the opportunity to read to Ms Lade’s Prep class at KBJ on Wednesday morning. The book was Grandpa and Thomas by Pamela Allen. The students were very attentive and well-behaved and had some great observations and questions to share at the end. I’m looking forward to the next time we get a chance to share some reading time together.

Year 6 Speeches

Ms Wellard’s Year 6s have been working on their public speaking and I was able to listen to some of the students making their speeches. The student audience were able to provide constructive (and insightful) feedback to each speaker. The standard of speaking really was remarkable. Given that skills such as these are becoming more important for careers in the future, I was really happy to see the level of confidence, eye-movement, body-language, and language that our students displayed.

Past Students Making a Mark

Tonight I will be attending the opening of an Art Exhibition at the Tank Arts Centre for 2016 TAS Graduate Elizabeth Sutton, called “Seventeen Years of Home”. This is a terrific achievement for a 17 year old artist and is indicative of the regard in which she is held. Elizabeth is currently studying Law and Arts at the Australian National University in Canberra.

News from Isabel Byrne. Isabel won a prestigious ASSIST scholarship to attend school in the USA in 2015. These scholarships are both prestigious and valuable and are open to applicants from around the world. Only a handful of Australians win an ASSIST scholarship and it is rare for a student in a regional centre to be successful. After her year away, Isabel completed a University Preparation program and is now studying International Relations and Law at Bond University
