A Busy Last Week of Term 2

A Busy Last Week of Term 2

The final week of school was met with enthusiasm from all the students as they ended a busy and long Term 2. Secondary students had a variety of activities throughout the week before enjoying a Student Free Day on Friday.

Years 7, 8 and 9 students began the week with their 3 day camps held at Burleigh Heads, Numbinbah Valley in the Gold Coast Hinterland and Mt Tamborine respectively while the Year 10 students had Work Experience.

The Year 11 students had an alternative program that commenced with a Leadership Program on the Monday. This program provided them with the tools to prepare for their Senior Leadership role next year.  The next day, the students had First Aid Training facilitated by Surf Life Saving Queensland, followed by an outdoor education team building experience at Girraween National Park on Wednesday. On Thursday, the Year 11s participated in a Responsible Service of Alcohol facilitated by the Queensland College of Wine and Tourism.

The Year 12 cohort attended a Driver Safety Program at Willowbank Raceway on Monday.  This one day program, which is a driver awareness course aimed at young and novice drivers, included lectures, demonstrations, video presentations and hands-on driving experiences. The following two days were spent with QCS preparation and a Practice Test on Thursday.

Thank you to our families and community for their support during Term 2. We look forward to a productive Term 3. School resumes on Monday 16th July.
