Assembly News for 4th October 2017

Assembly : Wednesday, 10th October 2017
Assembly was opened by Acting Deputy Principal – Mrs Victoria Menkins
Rainy Weather: Students were requested to be mindful of the weather over the coming days, especially if there is more rain. The undercover areas can get very crowded during these times so everyone needs to be respectful towards one another.  A reminder that the oval is an out of bounds area before school and access to the oval at lunch times may change if the rain continues.
Bags: Students were congratulated for not bringing their bags to assembly anymore as was requested last term.
Exam Block: In Week 8 our Year 10 students will have an exam block to prepare them for their senior years. These students will finish their school year at the end of this exam block.
Term 4 Sport: Students were requested to meet in the undercover area at the end of lunch today. New sporting groups will need to be sorted and processed so students were requested to be seated in readiness. Trials for both Futsal and Basketball will be conducted today due to so many students wishing to participate in these sports. Next week some students may need to change sports after these trials, then from Week 3 all sporting groups will be fixed with no changes allowed.
The Year 10 students will be running some ‘Come and Try’ physical exercises during weeks 6 and 7 so watch this space.
Speedway Stars: Two of our students, Tarhlea Apelt and Nic Whell appeared in The Chronicle twice during the school holidays. Both these students competed against each other in a recent speedway meet here in Toowoomba and had very positive articles written about them before and after the event.  We congratulate both Nic and Tarhlea and wish them all the best for the coming speedway season.
All students were reminded that if they have any activities outside the school environment that they have excelled in or would like mentioned or shared with the school community, to please contact either one of the Deputy Principals or Mr Pukallus if it is sporting related.
Make it Count: Ms Barker spoke about the recent football finals. Her focus was on how much hard work professional football players have to put in throughout their career, and not just on one day of the finals. Working together as a team is just as important.  Ms Barker encouraged students to continue to improve upon their results from last term and to always try and achieve their personal goals.  Year 10 students only have eight weeks left of their school year and Ms Barker hoped they would be aiming to leave with the best possible results they can achieve.
David Shillington Visit: This coming Friday morning David Shillington, former Australian professional rugby league footballer, will be visiting the College. David will spend time with our Year 8 students during period 1 and our STEP students during first break.
STEP Applications for 2018: Applications close this Friday, 6th October. Please see Mr James if you have any questions.
Assembly was closed by Mrs Menkins.
