Date: March 1, 2018    Posted by: Sue Wicks

Good luck Ella

We wish Year 9 TAS student Ella Goddard all the best as she heads off for the Commonwealth Games Selection Trials, held on the Gold Coast next week. To qualify as a 14 year old is truly remarkable and Ella will be competing against world class swimmers. She will swim the 200 Fr, 200 Fly, 200 IM and 400 Fr. Go Ella!

Her interview with 7 News can be viewed here: https://www.facebook.com/TASSwimming/videos/1836435819700398/

Water Polo

What an honour to have water polo legend Mel Rippon in the TAS pool working with our students. As some of you are aware, I have a long-standing love of this game and to have a living legend at TAS imparting her knowledge, experience and wisdom was really exciting. Mel is a triple Olympian and dual Olympic Bronze medallist. I must admit to being a little star struck!


Year 3 Camp

It was great to spend some time with our Year 3’s up at Camp Tineroo on Thursday. They were having way too much fun, whilst also undertaking some great activities learning about trust, reflection, teamwork, and linking their classroom science with the real world. I am a lot more knowledgeable about cane toads/tadpoles and their life cycle than I was before, thanks to the Year 3’s who were able to find and catch many of them, whilst also canoeing out to check their yabby pots.
