Learning. Believing. Achieving – Term 2 Week 2

Date: May 2, 2017    Posted by: Sue Wicks


Thanks to all the Year 5 and 6 families who attended the terrific transition evening at WRS on Thursday evening. It was great to meet and chat with many parents and investigate the opportunities for our potential Year 7 students.

Thank you also to the large number of Year 6 families who have met with me for their transition interviews. I am really impressed so far with the calibre and achievements of our incoming Year 7s and am excited with potential of this cohort.

A reminder that the Senior School TAS in Action is this upcoming Thursday commencing at 2:30pm (but feel free to attend at any time as tours leave at regular intervals). It is a great opportunity for families to actually see for themselves the terrific academic and co-curricular program at TAS Senior School. Hopefully you will understand why we are so excited about the educational journey that TAS provides our students.



Congratulations to the KBJ choir for their performance at the Trinity Beach ANZAC Day service. I know that we had a large presence at most of the services around Cairns. I’d like to commend our students and their families for their attendance and the grace and respect displayed by the TAS community to this important day. The high standard of student behaviour and respect of our students was noticeable. I was really proud of our community.

Some great news from our TAS basketballers.

  • U12 Marlin’s Daniel Statton, Sean O'Reilly, Travis Drinnan, along with U12 Dolphin’s Giaan Tippet and U12 Coral’s Emily Stone, competed in the U12 State Championships at the Gold Coast. The boys did a terrific job and won the state championships. Congratulations to the U12 Coral's Emily Stone who was awarded the U12 Girls Most Improved Player 2016/2017. Great job Emily!
  • Well done to Travis, Sean, Daniel & Chantelle who will all be traveling to Brisbane in June to represent the Peninsula region for Basketball after a successful selection day at the Cairns Independent basketball trials. It is great to see our basketballers reaching new heights and performing so well. We wish them luck and look forward to hearing of their experiences.

Wednesday 19th April saw four TAS boys trial for Peninsula AFL. Brant Clubb, Angus Lane, Kale Tottman and Daniel Statton. It was quite a day, as these students had to play AFL for an hour, leave to return to school to run the TAS cross country races, then return for 3 more games of AFL. At the end of the day all four students were successful in making the 2017 12 years Peninsula AFL team and now start training for the carnival in Mackay in June to represent TAS for the Peninsula region. Well done lads! (Great to see them wearing jumpers that look remarkably similar to the mighty St Kilda FC!)
