This week was such a positive start to the term with all our student leaders welcoming us back to school and sharing their many events they have planned. The string quartet performance played by Claire, Wendy, Eugene and Dami was absolutely beautiful. What amazing musicians we have here at QASMT.
ARC on Tuesday was extremely exciting with Toson (our Sports
Captain) unveiling our first ever school war cry in readiness for our football
match against BBC next week, which will be the first competition as we compete
for the inaugural Miskin Cup. Future competitions include debating and
My classroom visits this week covered many year levels and subject areas including Japanese, French, German HL, French HL, Language and Literature, Year 8 Science and numerous maths classes. Many students were reviewing their assessment pieces and it was wonderful to see how our students were engaging with their feedback and really analysing this for improvement. I was able to have some meaningful conversations with some Year 10 students regarding their assessment and that they are only at the beginning of the IB Diploma journey. It was a great opportunity to debunk some myths.
The teachers’ vs students’ netball game was full of high energy on Thursday and again our students were the winners. I played Goal Shooter and was up against Austin Goal Defence who I think is at least 6’6”. Needless to say, he was sticking to me like glue.
We ended the week remembering those who have served to defend Australia. Anzac has been one of the most important dates on Australia's calendar since 1916. As per tradition we all observed silence prior to Mr Hulse OAM reciting the ode.
'They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.'
'We will remember them
Lest we forget'
Thank you Shruti (our service Captain) and our service ambassadors for a truly sombre and commemorative service.
