Learning. Believing. Achieving – Term 1 Week 5

Date: February 27, 2017    Posted by: Sue Wicks

Another amazing week in the life of TAS. The culture of support amongst students, parents and staff is quite unique. I was forwarded an email yesterday from a parent wanting to pass on her thanks to a Year 12 lad who had spent time significantly helping her son (in a younger year level) for no other reason than it was the right thing to do. I see and hear of these acts quite often.

Music concert – Saturday 18 February.  It was wonderful to attend my first official TAS music concert last Saturday evening. The Concert Band, String Orchestra and the School Orchestra had spent two days work shopping with Mr Owen Clark, the Head of Ensembles from Brisbane Girls Grammar and a very highly regarded music educator in the both Australia and New Zealand. Their resulting performances were outstanding. Our student musicians had obviously responded to Mr Clarke’s passion and enjoyment of music and there were smiles and engagement throughout. There were also some wonderful solo and duo performances. It was a wonderful showcase of what is obviously a very high standard music program at TAS.

My thanks to Ms Shead and Ms Stitt, as well as avid staff musicians Joan and Monica.

The STEM Facility at White Rock continues to receive plaudits and raise interest in the architecture community and beyond. Read a recent story regarding this amazing, award-winning TAS facility at Australian Design Review:



We are excited to announce “TAS in Action” to be held in March. This is an opportunity for TAS to open up our Kindergarten and Junior School to local families so they can see for themselves the TAS Difference.

As a current TAS family, we are inviting you to help spread the word by inviting your friends and colleagues to come and see TAS in Action. The program will run at Kewarra Beach campus on Wednesday 15 March, and at White Rock campus on Thursday 16 March. Both days will commence with registrations at 9am for a 9.30am start, and conclude around 11am.

Families will have the opportunity to meet with me, our Heads of Junior School and our Kindy and Prep educators. Children are welcome, and can either visit the Kindy or relevant year class, or stay with parents to be involved in the information component of the morning.

It will be two great mornings for our school.

SLSC Championships.  Great results for the SLSC championships at Hervey Bay last weekend. Three of our students competed at the QLD State Surf Lifesaving Youth State Championships. Lila Horobin (Yr 8), Murray Colbridge (Yr 8) and Joe Ince (Yr 7)were terrific representatives of our school and our region. Lila was outstanding, collecting silver medals in both the U13 Surf Race and 1 km beach run. Murray came 4th in the 1km beach run, which is a wonderful effort. This was against the best SLSC athletes from around the state, including from the powerhouse clubs on the Sunshine and Gold Coasts. Well done!
