Learning. Believing. Achieving – Term 2 Week 1

Date: April 21, 2017    Posted by: Sue Wicks

Welcome back to Term 2. I hope everyone was able to spend some quality time with friends and family.

School Video

The new “Why TAS” video has been launched and is available on our TAS homepage or at  http://tas.qld.edu.au/beyond-the-classroom/why-tas/ It is well worth a look.

Thanks to the following students who created this video over Term 1 under the guidance of media guru Daniel Pycroft: Alex Barker, Joel Dana, Thomas Dunlop, Callum Fyfe, Jesse Jorgensen, Charlie Kaldenbach, Ryan Phipps, Matthew Robertson, and Finn Russell.

Communications Protocol

If you need to contact someone at the school, sometimes it is difficult to know who can best help. Please find below a set of guidelines that you can refer to when deciding whom to contact. This is also available on the website under the policy tab.

Comms Protocol


You will also see a new addition to the website – stories of student life at TAS told by our students called iAchieve. It a great showcase of the range of achievements of so many TAS students. The link is here: http://tas.qld.edu.au/iachieve/. Late news: One of the students featured, Stephanie Schmidt, has just been awarded a T J Ryan Merit Certificate by the Queensland government for students who “show outstanding leadership in their school and community, and achieve academic excellence in Year 12”.

Web Translator

As education becomes more global, our website is now translatable into a variety of languages: Chinese (Mandarin), Japanese, Korean, Punjabi and Hindi. You will see the translation menu at the top right of the home page. This flows on from our presence at the ANZA conference held in Cairns over the holidays which hosted a wide range of education agents from around the world. Agents took tours around the TAS White Rock campus as part of the international conference (TAS was the school selected to hold tours).


Over the school holidays a number of TAS students were involved in the Queensland State Basketball Championships. The Cairns Marlins won the Gold medal in U12 featuring Sean O’Reilly (Y5) Daniel Statton (Y5) and Travis Drinnan (Y6). The tournament was held during the first week of school holidays on the Gold Coast at the new Commonwealth Games Facility. Year 11 student Brandon O’Reilly was appointed as a referee for the tournament.

The under 14 State Championships were hosted by the Cairns Basketball Association during the second week of school holidays The Division 2 girls made it to the semi finals featuring team Vice Captain Chantelle O’Reilly (Y7), whilst the Division 1 girls came second with Amy Statton (Y7) a member of this silver medal team. Those girls fought hard and went down in a tough grand final against the Gold Coast.

It’s terrific to see our TAS basketballer involved at such a high level.
