Learning. Believing. Achieving – Term 2 Week 3

TAS in Action

It was a terrific afternoon as WRS hosted the TAS in Action function. A steady stream of families toured the campus and were able to see some of the terrific things that take place within the senior campus. Many thanks to our student leaders who did a fantastic job leading tours – the parents visiting were incredibly positive regarding our students, both those leading tours and those they encountered involved in the events taking place.

Performance – A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Terrific to see several TAS students appearing in a Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Rondo Theatre in Edge Hill this week – congratulations to Katie, Brandon, Ivy and Beatrice on great performances over the two nights.



Some outstanding results from the National Swimming Championships.

Ella had an outstanding meet making 4 finals in the 200m Fly (4th place), 400m Free (4th place), 400m IM (5th place) and 200m Free (9th.) As a newly turned 14 year old, she was clearly the youngest in her age group.

Harriet and Flynn also swam very well. Both students qualified in the top 12 in Australia in certain events. Although a small group, TAS finished the meet as the Top Scoring National Age Club in our region. We are officially the best performing FNQ club regionally, at a state level and at a national level.

Congratulations to Head coach Duncan Todd and our amazing young swimmers. Love seeing TAS Swimming making a splash!
