Learning. Believing. Achieving – Week 7 Term 1

Date: March 6, 2018    Posted by: Sue Wicks

Congratulations Emerging Artist, Evelyn Mikembe

Evelyn took part in the FLAME 2018 mentorship and exhibition project. This exhibition will launch at 6pm on Saturday 10 March. It is great to see our terrific artists having their artworks recognised and appreciated by the wider community.

KBJ Craft Club

Our younger KBJ students were having a wonderful time at the KBJ Craft Club recently. Thank you to Ms Payne and the wonderful assistance of our older KBJ students – what terrific young people!

KBJ Primary Art

I was lucky enough to be able to visit our Preps in their Art class last week. We certainly have some budding Picassos! Lots of smiles, laughter and creativity was on display.


WRJ Robotics and coding

What an amazing afternoon last Thursday. Our WRJ students showed me what they have been working on in the coding and robotics club and I was blown away! The little ones were programming Cubetos, using repeating sub-programs, whilst the older students were building and programming Lego mindstorm robots both on the manual Lego controls and also using the laptop coding platform. As an ex-Engineer, I must admit to being quite excited and a little in awe of what they were doing. My thanks to the staff and especially Pia for their leadership of this amazing program. 


Rosie’s – Friends on the Street

I was privileged to spend an evening with the volunteers from Rosie’s providing food and a kind word to some of the less fortunate members of our Cairns community. These outstanding people give up their time willingly and without fanfare to do the right thing. Our TAS student volunteers were truly wonderful on the evening, with their positive work ethic, compassion and good cheer. It is always a humbling experience to see young people give back to their community. Thank you.


What a beautiful concert on Sunday. Three of our musicians, Hannah, Tess and India, spent the weekend workshopping with other student musicians from schools in Cairns and surrounds under the guidance of high-performance staff from the Griffith University Conservatorium at the State Honours Ensemble Program. The concert was a showcase of the pieces they had worked on over the program and was truly spectacular. Well done ladies!
