Date: June 2, 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

Science is Amazing

We welcomed Alex Loukas, TAS School captain from the first Year 12 graduating cohort, to speak to our senior science students on Wednesday about his research. Alex is a professor at JCU and a world leader in researching the parasites in our gut and their impact on human auto-immune improvements through their secretions. He explained the science behind his research and our students (and staff) were spell-bound.

Study Cairns Function  at TAS

TAS welcomed delegates from Study Cairns to a rooftop breakfast on the STEM for a function titled “Science was never this much fun when I was at school”. The delegates were amazed at the science displays, the junior school robotics and coding displays, and the outstanding calibre of our senior leaders. Thanks to all involved, particularly Bo-Min’s beautiful music.

Teachers as Students!

Thanks to Dr Jason Holdsworth from JCU for sharing his knowledge and expertise with coding and robotics  with our KBJ teachers on the scratch.com platform. This a program developed by MIT in the USA and allows students to grow and develop their coding and programming. It is great for TAS to be able to access Dr Holdsworth’s terrific expertise in this important 21st century skill. From all reports, KBJ teachers are pretty good at coding!

The Bottle Top Wall

What an amazing wall in the Student Wellbeing Centre at KBJ. My thanks to Kate Hard and Trish Merchant who were the driving force behind this project. There are Kidsmatter sessions in the space on Monday and some teachers use it for Circle Time. It’s also used for some Learning Enrichment sessions because the space is appealing and inviting. Teachers are able to access this space to focus on Growth Mindset work with the students.

Year 7 Camp

Thanks to Mr Osmond and Ms Beveridge for a wonderful Year 7 camp; a terrific environment, wonderful activities and great attitudes. A special thanks to Peter and Angela Freeman for allowing TAS to access their beautiful property. Our wonderful staff, Mr Yamada, Ms Moyer, Ms Malcolm and Mr Swanston were in their element. My dinner of salami cous cous was outstanding! And to top off my visit, I was comprehensively outwitted in the games by some pretty sharp Year 7 students!
