Learning. Believing. Achieving – Term 3 Week 1

Date: July 14, 2017    Posted by: Sue Wicks

Welcome back to the second half of the year. I hope all families are feeling rested and refreshed and ready for another busy 6 months. We are all looking forward to welcoming back the Year 6s from Canberra and hearing of their exciting (if a little cold) adventures.

As many senior students will have experienced, the new teaching wings at WRS have opened and classes are now under way in these terrific teaching areas.

We welcome Ms Imelda Spence as the acting Head of Junior School – White Rock for this semester and it has been great to see Ms Spence getting to know students and families. Ms Spence has a long history at Trinity Anglican School, including having previously been a Head of Junior School at Kewarra Beach.

The School has moved forward with planning for the new under-cover area at Kewarra Beach. Draft concept drawings were displayed at the Kewarra Beach Principal’s Forum and are now on display in the foyer at the Kewarra Beach administration building.

Swimming over the holidays

TAS Swimming hosted the first swimming carnival in the region for the new swimming season. 140 swimmers competed for a total of 900 swims completed over the 2 day meet. We had teams from as far afield as Darwin and Townsville attending and enjoying our terrific facility.

The TAS Swimming Club ran a great carnival with nothing but positive feedback from the swimming community. Thanks to all involved and bring on the next swim season!

Year 12 student Emily Hand wins a bursary to attend Melbourne University Open Day

Congratulations to Year 12 student Emily Hand regarding the Melbourne University Aspiring Scholars Open Day competition. Emily won a bursary that covered flights, a contribution towards meals and accommodation funding, a campus tour and unlimited access to the High Achiever’s Lounge at the university.

Emily’s submission was outstanding, effectively combining commitment and creativity, the two major selection criteria. As only 2 bursaries were awarded per state, well done Emily.
