4. Congratulations to students Melinda Storey, Emma Brennan, Zack Keleher and Krystal Clayton and their Hospitality teacher Amanda MacNellie – all students participated in the recent regional finals for the Schools Culinary Challenge with Zack and Krystal finishing 3rd in our region and Melinda and Emma 2nd.
Melinda and Emma went on to compete in the State final at Southbank TAFE. What an experience! Tension was tangible as students from all over Queensland competed in this wonderful event – high level chefs as judges, a one and a half hour time limit to produce the best product then judging. I commend our students and their teacher for the hours upon hours given over to the training involved. 5. I acknowledge local business people Paula Lucas ‘Romeo and Juliet Hair Studio’ and Gay who owns ‘Jazzy Lane Hair and Beauty’ – these good people have approached our school to offer free services for students who might otherwise struggle to afford costs associated with a school Formal eg hairstyles; makeup; dresses. They have now worked with a number of students from both our mainstream and Flexi school campuses to bring a dream to reality.
Such heartening kindness. 6.
While on acknowledgments … recently, with the assistance of one of our Heads of Year 10 Dave McMillan in dealing with a situation in house at CHSHS, I became aware of some of our Year 10s who, after spectating at Friday night basketball played at St Mary’s College, would walk down to Laurel Bank park and engage in the smoking of marijuana. This activity had attracted a large following from students enrolled in a variety of schools in Toowoomba. As per duty of care Dave and I rang all parents of our specific students concerned and also informed the police. Police, as always, were wonderful in speaking with our students in the company of parents in their own homes. I wish to commend our parents involved as they were faced with news no parent wants to hear and immediately causes worry – every one of our parents remained calm and was able to connect with their child to confirm their expectations as well as share their disappointment. Their children responded exceptionally well. As families you will be pleased to know that police have moved quickly to place patrols in the Laurel Bank Park area and take action against the drug dealers.
7. Parents of our Year 10s seeking to move on to Year 11 2016 – your participation in the Subject Selection evening in August was exceptional. A reminder that interviews for our 10s for their Senior Education and Training Plan [SETP] take place on Wednesday 7 and Thursday 8 October with early starts and later finishes on those days to accommodate parent/carers. Once the interview has taken place and starting subjects and programs for 2016 have been confirmed your child’s subjects go in to the 2016 timetable.
Until that interview happens their selections sit outside the timetable and there is a chance that subjects your child selects may be fully subscribed so please be sure to book your interview as per the letter already sent to you or check our website for detail. 8. Posting of Term 3 report cards – this will begin for all year levels Thursday 17 September so you will receive the report over the holidays. 9.
School Magazine – last orders this week and Week 1 Term 4 – contact the staff in our Textbook Office 4636 7576 to place your order. These are memories you will revisit time and again as will your child both this year and into the future. $25 cost for a precious memory…. 10. Research has begun into the model that frames our enormously successful Flexi school. USQ Professor Lorelle Burton and retired USQ Professor Glen Postle OAM are conducting the research which will cost $150,000 and span 3 years.
From the outset of our win in the 2010 NAB Schools First program which was from 880 school nominations across Australia we have saved this money to contribute to such research. Lorelle and Glen have begun filming and interviewing past and present parents/carers, students and staff with this research going a long way to informing the future of alternate education within Queensland and Australia.
