On the 2nd of February, the Year 12 girls organised ICB's second World Hijab Day. Female secondary students celebrated the occasion by wearing colourful hijabs throughout the day to celebrate diversity, spread awareness and kindle a better understanding of how Muslim women around the world live their day-to-day lives.
At the February CPAC meeting, Mr Martineau gave a presentation on our 2016 Year 12 results. Last Friday QCAA released further data relating to Tertiary offers. Whilst we were very pleased with our high achievers, the OP pathway is about Tertiary Entrance for all. The QCAA data shows that 93% of ICB students who applied for a course through QTAC, received an offer. This is a tribute to the work of Mr Akrim in his advice to students in matching their expected outcomes to realistic tertiary pathways.
Four of our secondary teachers are taking on the gruelling Oxfam Trailwalker in June of this year. After some sole searching, Chris Daykin, Vincent Parry, Dean Tyacke and Craig Burchell have joined up to Australia's original team endurance event in which teams of four tackle 100kms of Australian bush within 48 hours. This will be a challenge for us in many ways, but we are ready to pull up our socks to do something epic to stamp out poverty and injustice throughout the world.
The Semester Two Awards Assembly for Secondary will be held this Friday (25th November) in the MPH, beginning at 2.30pm. All families welcome
