Dear Secondary Families,
Since arriving at ICB in January I have been aware of a small but significant number of students who, due to their behaviour, regularly disrupt learning. Subject teachers have worked hard to deal with these disruptions but they are regular enough that we need a whole school approach.
Last week the Middle Management team met to discuss strategies to allow stronger learning environments by reducing disruptions.
At present the staff facilities at ICB are a little underwhelming. There’s nowhere comfortable for hardworking teachers to relax and socialise during breaks.
QT Mutual Bank are having a Staffroom for Improvement competition for Qld schools are giving away $20, 000 to the winning school for staffroom improvements. There are also thousands of dollars in other prizes to be won.

CresWalk2016 is just around the corner. Join us at Orleigh Park, West End on Sunday 4 SEPTEMBER for a pleasant walk or jog along the Brisbane River on a delightful Spring morning. This year we are creating greater awareness of domestic violence in Australia and you can help us change attitudes and behaviour. There will also be the famous and fabulous CresWalk breakfast to round off the morning's activities.
I will be on leave from Monday 29 August. Mr. Shariff will be the Acting Principal from then until the end of term and Mrs Shannon Robertson will be trialling the position of Head of Welfare to assist Mr. Shariff. I have wished our Year 12 students all the best for the forthcoming Qld. Core Skills Test. Best wishes also to the whole school community for Eid-ul Adha.

The College First Netball Gala Day was a success. In the lead up to the Gala Day the year 5 & 6 students have been training hard to be real contenders at the Netball Gala Day. On August 5th our selected students demonstrated great sportsmanship, team unity, development of netball skills and the ability to turn a game around when they were down going into the last half. This is a huge success for the girls and the college.

On the 29th of July and 2nd of August the Islamic College of Brisbane competed at the District Athletics Carnival for the first time. With over 20 students competing at the carnival our college took out 2nd place in the shot put, 2nd place in the 4x100m girls relay and 1st place in the 4x100m boys relay. Congratulations to all competitors for being such great role models for the school, and showing other schools in our District what we are capable of.

On Wednesday the 27th July, grade 5 participated in a drumming workshop lead by two very clever drummers from Drum pulse.
We enjoyed the experience very much. We learned basic drumming patterns, on the Djembe, and call and response activities. We also learned different ways to hit the drum to make different sounds. Our responses involved hitting the drum 4 times when the instructor hit the drum 5 times and so on.
