Week 9 has been yet again another eventful week. From QASMT Campus Tours for potential new students to Pride Month Celebration, Fete de la Musique, and the Griffith Principal's Dinner, it has been an enriching time for our students and staff.
QASMT Campus Tours
We recently welcomed potential new students and their families to our school for QASMT Campus Tours. It was a wonderful opportunity to showcase our state-of-the-art facilities, International Baccalaureate programmes, cutting edge STEM Futures electives and our nurturing learning community for highly capable learners. The QASMT Campus Tours provided the opportunity to view our co-teaching pedagogy in action and our collaborative learning spaces. It was exciting to meet so many like-minded students with their many and varied questions. I would like to thank Michele, Sigrid, Chelsea and Alice for organising and making the tours such a success.
Griffith Principal's Dinner
The recent Griffith University Principal's dinner was a very enjoyable evening, held at the Cremorne Theatre in the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC). Located next to QPAC, Griffith University's Southbank campus nurtures the next generation of performing artists, and so the evening was a chance to showcase their units of study and degrees. As guests we were welcomed by Griffith's Vice Chancellor, Professor Carolyn Evans, and entertained by current and past musical theatre students, some of whom are now principal actors and singers in productions such as Phantom of the Opera, Mary Poppins and Cry Baby. The evening also allowed a large number of local high school principals to catch-up and network over dinner at the Lyrebird Restaurant.
Pride Month Celebration
Pride Month is recognised across the world in June and for QASMT we specifically celebrate and honour our LGBTQIA+ community during Week 9. Activities included:
- PRIDE ribbon making
- Music – PRIDE playlist
- Language matching activity
- Mini flag making
- Community PRIDE colouring mural
- Wordsearch & Crossword
- Rainbow Gratitude chain
Celebration is such an important opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to
providing a safe inclusive environment for all members of our community. It was
wonderful to see how many students and staff got involved and stood together to
celebrate our diversity.
Fete de la Musique
Fete de la Musique 'Festival of Music' originated in France and is celebrated annually on 21 June. It is a festival that holds great significance in the French culture and francophone areas. It is an annual event that brings people together to enjoy the beauty of music, filling the streets with enchanting melodies and creating a vibrant atmosphere. This week, we were entertained by the Language Acquisition DJs who took centre stage in the Agnesi laneway. They prepared an exciting line up of French music that captivated our senses and got us dancing. It was wonderful to see the many students getting involved, singing and dancing. What a lovely way to end Week 9!!
