Learning. Believing. Achieving – Week 5 Term 1

Date: February 19, 2018    Posted by: Sue Wicks

Music

What a terrific evening on Saturday night in the Bishop Centre. We were treated to some wonderful performances from the orchestra, the strings ensemble and the concert band after their 2 day workshop with visiting music educator Ingrid Martin. Ingrid is a well-known music leader in Melbourne and came up to work with our musicians on a number of pieces honed over the workshop. These were combined with some outstanding solo work from Angela Xiang, James and Brnedan Leong and Harry Boothby. The concert finished with a spectacular piece that made the hairs stand up. Well done all on a wonderful evening.  Some images are below, and more can be found on our photo gallery.

Lilia Walsh – Year 12 2017

Congratulations to 2017 graduate Lilia Walsh. On Saturday Lilia was presented with Distinguished Academic Achiever award by the Education minister, Grace Grace at the QCE Achievement Awards ceremony. Lilia achieved an OP1 last year and is looking forward to studying a Bachelor of Science and a Bachelor of Arts at ANU. Interestingly, there were only 4 of the 28 students receiving this award outside of South East Queensland and 2 of the 4 were from Cairns. Congratulations also go to Joshua Pelach from Smithfield State High School.

 

 

Getting Involved

It was great to see Ms Sue Wicks, our Director of Admissions and Marketing, reading to the congregation at The Good Shepherd Anglican Church, Edge Hill, recently. Ms Wicks read from Revelations, which was thought to be written to give Christians hope in a time of persecution for their beliefs.

Kewarra Beach Choir

Great to see the Kewarra Beach campus choir commence their 2018 under the guidance of Ms Long and the assistance of Ms Stitt. As usual, I start Tuesday mornings after listening to these youngsters with a spring in my step!
