UQ Young Scholars
Congratulations to four of our Year 11 students who have been selected into the University of Queensland Young Scholars program in Brisbane over the summer break. Erin Mecklem, Harriet Grant, Luke Robinson, and James Leong
What a great win on by the TAS Taipans with a stirring, come-from-behind victory in Tuesday nights Grand Final. Thanks to supercoach Ms Elisa Robati and all the wonderful parents who have supported the girls throughout the season.
Inspire Art Show
Thanks to all involved in a wonderful night at the INSPIRE Art show. Ms Ashburton, Ms Spence, staff and students did a wonderful job putting the show together, and it was truly spectacular. Thanks also to our auctioneer John Watts and the generous contributions made by those purchasing artworks during the evening.
Saving a tree frog
Thanks to the students who saved a white-lipped green tree frog and put it back into a safer place in the environment. Thanks to Melody, James and Tegan, with support from Mrs Long, Mrs Elder and our terrific groundsmen. Frog rescue – mission accomplished!
Surf Life Saving success
TAS recently sent 23 athletes to the NQ Interschool Lifesaving Competition, competing in swim, board and running events. There were some wonderful personal performances, team work and good sp0ortsmanship on display. Special mention to Harriet Grant (Age Champion), Ella Goddard (Age Champion) and Hayden Telford (Age Champion Runner Up). Congratulations to all of our lifesavers today!
Model United Nations
Wow. What an outstanding morning last Friday watching our young people providing a template to the United Nations on how it should be done. Congratulations to all involved – our future world is in good hands if this is the calibre of our future leaders. Special thanks to Sanjana for her work as Chair – she was outstanding.
