We congratulate the TAS students who won Age Champion Honours at the Regional Championships:
- Ella Goddard (Age & Open Champ)
- Harriet Grant
- Thomas Chen
- And a close runner- Up: Flynn Martin
Over first weekend of Term 2, the Age National Championships take place in Brisbane. We wish Ella, Harriet and Flynn all the best at this event.
Swimming News! 2
I had a chance to chat recently to a remarkable (and quite humble) young TAS woman, Ella Goddard. Ella broke a Far North Queensland 200m Butterfly record a couple of weekends ago. Amazingly, this record was set many years ago (and has been unbroken since) by National swimmer Julie Majer when she was a junior. Julie went on to medal at the Short Course Swimming World Championships in 1993. Ella broke this long-standing records by 3 seconds.
Kewarra Beach celebration
Last Friday afternoon was a terrific day in the life of Kewarra Beach campus. It was the final day for our visitors from Nagano, Osaka and they performed a dance in traditional costume. The whole campus were able to gather around the performance area, older students on the upper floor of the balcony, and younger students on the lower floor. It really was a special sight. We were then able to move into the Library to hear the Nagano students sing for us – again, a special performance.
Around Kewarra Beach campus
Great to see so much terrific learning going on around Kewarra Beach campus on Tuesday. Learning a bit more about Russia on Harmony Day.
Writing practice in Year 5 (i) before and (ii) after the Principal interrupted us.
Year 1 working on their interactive maths programs. I can’t remember maths being that fun when I was in Year 1 (it was quite a long time ago).
TAS sings up a storm
A special group of Trinity Anglican School students represented the school in singing the National Anthem at the opening of the LNP State Party conference on Saturday March 18.
Well done on a terrific performance from Katie Spuler, James Leong, Tessa Scott, Harry and Coco Boothby.
Wow – The KBJ Fingergym was outstanding on Wednesday. Thanks to Ms Woods and the team. Too much fun for a Principal in one day!
