Special Student Achievement Update

Top Two Science Investigations in Queensland for 2017 are TAS students

Wonderful news from Brisbane last week where two of our students have been announced First and Second in the 2017 Science Teachers Association of Queensland (STAQ) Science Competition. This is a remarkable achievement, as the competition is for all students throughout Queensland, including the large, STEM-focused schools in South East Queensland. As a physics teacher in a past life, I know how incredibly high the standard of submissions are in this competition and to achieve the top two places is extraordinary. Our thanks to the STEM department, our terrific Physics teacher, Mr Brain Springell, and the outstanding STEM program at TAS.

1st Place in Queensland – Samuel Kwort

Samuel’s investigation was on Shear Failure of deforested soils

Sam Kwort 2

2nd Place in Queensland - Yasin Adikari

Yasin’s investigation was on the Levitation of Superconductors


Claudia Philp achieves Second Place in the State for her Ancient History Essay

Congratulations to Year 12 student Claudia Philp. She has just been awarded second place for the prestigious Queensland History Teachers’ Association - Historical Writing Competition (2017) in Year 12 Ancient History. Claudia is School Vice Captain, champion sportswoman and an outstanding student. She was the only place-getter in this competition from a school outside Southeast Queensland. Well done Claudia, and our thanks to Mrs. Sarah Coleman who continues to guide and mentor students in our award-winning Ancient History program.


Kane O’Reilly gains a scholarship at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in LA

Year 12 student Kane O’Reilly has just received the news that he has won a place at the prestigious AADA for 2018, one of only 180 students worldwide and, as far as we know, 1 of 3 Australian students this intake. Alumni of the AADA include Robert Redford, Kirk Douglas, Danny DeVito, Lauren Becall, and a host of others. Alumni have received 108 Oscar nominations, 288 Emmy nominations and 93 Tony nominations. This is a remarkable feat by Kane and will provide him a wonderful stepping stone for a career in performing arts. Truly amazing.
