Outstanding Opportunities | Astounding Achievements # 2

Date: November 1, 2017    Posted by: Sue Wicks

Year 7/8 QAMT Maths Team outstanding at the State finals.

Our Year 7/8 QAMT Maths Quiz team were outstanding at the State Championships. They finished fifth overall in the State, the highest ranked team outside of Southeast Queensland. This competition has been running for many years and is recognised as the premier event for young mathematicians by the peak body for mathematics educators in Queensland, The Queensland Association of Mathematics Teachers. The team members - Mohak Sengupta, Michael Begg, Tanay Pandey and Jinan Hassan - were competing against some of the best young mathematical minds in the state and were wonderful ambassadors for TAS. My thanks to the parents who were able to attend the State Championships and cheer the team along. Coach (and Head of STEM) Mr Pacey has worked with these young masterminds in the lead up to the event and we are very, very proud of their accomplishments.

TAS Outdoor Education program wins State Award

As many of you are aware, Mr Darren Osmond has taken over the leadership of the TAS Outdoor Education program in 2017. Mr Osmond has worked tirelessly throughout the year to update and improve the program with the assistance of Ms Emma Beveridge. At the prestigious Outdoors Queensland Awards in Brisbane, run by the peak industry body, the Queensland Outdoor Recreation Federation (QORF), the TAS Outdoor Education program was selected as a finalist in the tough "Award for Outstanding Achievement (Organisation)" category. TAS had previously been selected as a finalist, but had never won the award. Other finalists in this category from around Queensland are doing great things in outdoors education; however, last Friday came the exciting news that Trinity Anglican School was announced as the Overall Winner for 2017. My thanks to the staff and students, particularly the great work done by our outdoor education contractors and the wonderful support from the teaching staff who attend these programs. We are already looking forward to 2018, where we aim to implement several new initiatives designed to increase student learning and enjoyment in outdoor education. A special thank you to Year 11 student Sophie Kalkowski-Pope who put together an excellent video presentation for the awards night for us.

TAS Science students scoop State Awards

Over the weekend at the Awards ceremony in Brisbane, Year 12 students Sam Kwort and Yasin Adikari received their awards for Best Regional Projects for their Science Investigations at the Science Teacher Association Queensland (STAQ) Awards held at UQ. Congratulations on a terrific effort. We now await news of selection for the prestigious national BHP-Billiton Science competition.
