On the 23rd of July, a small group of high schoolers, in year 10, 11 and 12, boarded the train to head to the Queensland University of Technology, Gardens Point. The Big Day In was hosted at QUT and our lovely IT teachers had managed to save us a spot. The day consisted of a variety of lectures from some major companies that incorporated IT into their businesses.
Wednesday 15 July the Secondary school celebrated the academic achievements of 50 of our students. 43 students earned a Merit certificate and 7 students earned a Distinction certificate. To be awarded a Merit those students averaged a B or B+ across their subjects and to be awarded a Distinction students averaged an A- or higher across their subjects.
On Wednesday 29th May, the three houses battled it out at the annual Inter House Cross Country Carnival. Starting with the ritual of the chanting of war cries, to the highlight of the event, Tug-of-war, it was truly a great day! Spirit within the houses was taken to another level and it’s safe to say that new standards have been set. As captains, we strongly encouraged team spirit and enthusiasm as a whole and believed that if the whole team was dedicated and motivated to win, our level of achievement within the sport would rise.
