Learning. Believing. Achieving – Term 2 Week 10

Date: June 23, 2017    Posted by: Sue Wicks

Just a reminder – keep up to date with what’s happening. Lots of news from TAS is posted on the official Facebook page: Trinity Anglican School, Cairns.

Outstanding Eisteddfod

What an amazing week of Eisteddfod! On Tuesday the KBJ choir finished second place in Junior Chief Chorus (two-part singing) whilst the WRJ finished first place in the Novelty Chorus. TAS Strings received a Highly Commended in the High School strings section.

On Wednesday TAS Voices finished second place in the Modern/Popular Chorus, and in addition Highly Commended in Sacred Chorus and Highly Commended in Chief Chorus. At the very end of the Eisteddfod, at the conclusion of the choral sessions, there was a special award for the best choral item of the Eisteddfod. The adjudicator gave this to the WRJ choir for their performance of "Ghost Ship" in the novelty section yesterday. This is an outstanding achievement, and a first for TAS, as it was judged against all other choral ensembles performing at the Eisteddfod.

Many individual students have performed very well but a special shout out to James Leong who was the winner of the Wind Aggregate Award (the Trinity Anglican School Shield – very nice to have one of our own students win it)

Congratulations to all performers – you have done the school proud! Our deep thanks to Ms Stitt, Ms Long and all our brilliant, committed Music staff at TAS.

TAS Junior School Athletics Day

What a terrific day last Friday. Great to see so many happy faces, great sportsmanship, and wonderful performances. There are lots of great pictures on the TAS Sports Facebook page. Thanks to all the parents and friends who attended to support our young athletes.

Surf Life Saving

Congratulations to super lifesaver Harriet Grant! Harriet has recently won the North Queensland Branch Surf Lifesaving Queensland U18 Lifesaver of the Year. This means she will head down to the Gold Coast in August to be interviewed for the Queensland U18 Lifesaver of the Year. Harriet’s list of accomplishments in surf lifesaving are amazing:

- Cairns SLSC U17 Age Champion, Open Female Age Champion.
- NQ Branch SLSQ - U17 Pool Rescue Champion, U17 Age Champion, U17 Champion Lifesaver, Open Female Champion Lifesaver
- Youngest person to ever compete in the Palmy Classic Endurance Ironperson. (This consists of a 9k Ski Paddle, 2k Run, 2k Open Water Swim, 4k Board Paddle and 4k Run). She ended up being the second female across the line not far behind Tiarne Raymond who competes in the Nutrigrain Ironman series!

Well done Harriet!

Eco-Art Finalists

Well done to Year 3 students Charlie Hard, Thomas King, and James Pereira who have been selected as finalists in the Eco-Art Competition. The judges have advised that the judging was very tough this year as the quality of entries overall was very high. (The presentation will be from 4pm to 5pm Friday 23 June at the Cairns Botanic Gardens Visitors Centre on Collins Avenue).

What an angler!

 Wow. Thomas King is some sort of fisherman!  He caught this mackerel on 6kg line during the PNG Madang National Fishing Titles and got highest point scoring game fish junior. It took him about 20 minutes to land the fish. It is now pending confirmation of a world age record.

Junior School Culminating Activities

It was great to drop in to Year 1 on Thursday afternoon. The students had constructed models of towns they had created in maths (a terrific spatial activity), and then were programming their robots to navigate through some winding streets. Awesome!

End of Term

To all our TAS Community, have a safe semester break, and we will see all students back at TAS on Tuesday 11 July.
