On 8 January flashing light school zone signs were installed on 45 Acacia Road.
Islamic College of Brisbane was nominated to receive these new signs as part of a Queensland Government commitment to improve school road safety.
You will notice that the new signs look similar to standard school zone signs with the addition of a red flashing ring around the speed limit as well as two flashing yellow lights at the top of the sign.
• Safety of pupils is the primary importance during “set down” and “pick up”
• Ease the passing traffic along Acacia Road to improve safety
• Changes need to be made to the afternoon “pick up”
• The traffic in the mornings is of less concern than in the afternoon
• There will be two significant changes
1. Increase the efficiency of the internal set down to limit congestion and
2. Reconfigure the external traffic arrangements to provide less impact on the road network
For the last 8 weeks the Year 6 Girls have had specialist Netball Coaches come to the school and run a netball program as part of the physical education unit. Their skills were put to the test yesterday afternoon when they took on the year 7 girls in an exhilarating 45 minute netball match. The girls demonstrated great sportsmanship, determination and skill to beat the year 7s by 1 point.
If you think that teachers don’t need to learn anything more because they know everything… think again!
A group of intrepid ICB teachers braved the luxurious surrounds of the Seaworld Resort Conference Centre to attend the Pearson Learning and Teaching Conference 2015 (LTCON 2015) on the 5, 6 and 7th of November. One teacher even gave up her Saturday to attend.
It is time to introduce myself to the parents and friends of the College who may not have met me yet. As the newly appointed College Nurse, my role has been evolving and my number one priority has been to create a functional and safe Health Centre for our students and staff. The restructured first aid area has been met with great enthusiasm and support from parents, teachers, the Imams and administration staff.
Congratulations Azra Ikhwan, our Turn-to-Tap Challenge Winner!
Congratulations goes to Azra Ikhwan, in class 3C, who has won our primary school Turn to Tap challenge bag tag design contest. Her winning design was chosen out of 160 entries from ICB primary school students. It has been made into a school bag tag for all students to remind them to bring their reusable water bottles to school. The Turn to Tap challenge is sponsored by Queensland Urban Utilities as a part of Tangalooma EcoMarines Ambassador program.
On the 29th of October boys from year 5 and 6 were selected to participate in the NRL GALA DAY held at Centenary JRFLC. The day consisted of a round robin with a final play off for first and second place. The Grade 6 boys did an exceptional job, coming third place in their pool. The boys demonstrated great sportsmanship, courage and ability to work as a team. Try scorers for the day were Abdullah Khalil, palming what ended up being the whole team off to get the ball over the try line.
Why is it so dangerous?
On a typical Australian summer day, the temperature inside a parked car can be as much as 30° to 40° higher than the outside temperature, i.e. on a 30° day, the temperature inside the car could be as high as 70°. 75% of the temperature rise occurs within 5 minutes of closing the car and leaving it. 90% of the temperature rise occurs within 15 minutes.
