New Caledonia Excursionhttp://www.stteresa.qld.edu.au/school-news-features/Pages/New-Caledonia-Excursion.aspxNew Caledonia Excursion<p>​<span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">​​On Thursday September 20, we will be taking a group of fourteen Year 8 students to New Caledonia for a week. They will be learning about Pacific Cultures and spending time in cultural and linguistic immersion with their buddies from </span><strong style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">College Champagnat</strong><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">, our Marist sister school in Nouméa.</span><br style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"> </span><br style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"><img class="ms-rtePosition-1" alt="Tjibaou_cultural_center-Commons_transfer_2012-11-20.jpg" src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Tjibaou_cultural_center-Commons_transfer_2012-11-20.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:199px;height:300px;" />This year, our students are lucky enough to be part of Champagnat College’s EPI project, which is a compulsory extra-curricular project that all French students undertake in middle school. This involves working with their Melanesian buddies on a project about native Kanak culture at the Tjibaou Centre in Nouméa They will be cooking traditional </span><em style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">Bougna </em><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">(meat and veg wrapped in banana leaves and cooked on a ground oven), trying their hand at </span><em style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">basket-weaving</em><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"> and learning about how traditional </span><em style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">Kanak huts</em><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"> are built and operate.</span> <br></p><p><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">Students will also be required to engage in a number of linguistic and cultural tasks throughout the week such as changing their money at the hotel counter, ordering their meals, and surviving the school canteen with their buddies, all in French. </span><br></p><p><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">Our trip combines Melanesian/Polynesian cultures and metropolitan French culture. Amongst other things, students will attend a cooking class where they will prepare </span><em style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">lemon meringue tart</em><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"> under the supervision of French Chef, Samuel Machon.  </span><br style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"><br style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">We hope that our students will learn a lot from this trip, and not only improve their language skills, but also increase their understanding and empathy with a different culture.</span> <br></span></p><p><br> </p>
QCMF Winnershttp://www.stteresa.qld.edu.au/school-news-features/Pages/QCMF-Winners.aspxQCMF Winners<p>​​​​<img class="ms-rtePosition-1" alt="IMG_4413.JPG" src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/IMG_4413.JPG" style="margin:5px 10px;width:400px;height:267px;" />On Sunday 18<sup>th</sup> September, 50 of our Music students, 3 staff and 2 Instrumental Music teachers set off at 7am for <em>The Queensland Catholic Music Festival</em>, at Villanova College in Cooparoo, Brisbane. This is a non-competitive 3 day festival event focused on performing, networking, experience of new repertoire and styles, and above all raising standards and building ensemble-mindedness as the students support and get to know each other better. This year, in order to minimise disruption to our students’ academic school week, we were able to work with the Festival organisers to hold all of our performances on the one day in the weekend, while still providing plenty of time in between events for participants to socialise, see other schools and other genres of music (including jazz).<br> <br>We took 4 ensembles – Concert Band, Vocal Group and our two extension ensembles (STCC Stage Band and Soul Collective) who performed in 4 different sections and different venues, including indoor and outdoor and St James Church. The real value of these awards is that they don’t duplicate competitive eisteddfod aims, but are instead criteria (standards) based, so students come away with a good sense of their level of achievement, while supporting and cheering on all other creative work by the various schools in their section. Schools readily shared equipment between warm-up rooms and students laughed, chatted and made music and friends backstage. By 4pm, three of our ensemble were heading home with 3 major awards - a Gold (for Soul Collective who presented a standout 12 minute set) and 2 Silver (for Concert Band and Vocal Group). A special mention to our Soul Collective vocalists – Maggie Aitken, Ruby Pate Macdonald and Jade Gower – who earned individual Excellence Awards and glowing praise from the adjudicators!<br> <br>​​<img class="ms-rtePosition-2" alt="IMG_4488.JPG" src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/IMG_4488.JPG" style="margin:5px;" />Waving them goodbye, our Stage band members stayed on into the night with Brad and myself, for their performance in a late final section, so were absolutely thrilled to also achieve a Gold award amidst peers of an incredibly high standard. Arriving back at the College at 11pm we were all weary but convinced of a day well spent and are extremely proud of all 50 students, not only of course for their application of skill, but for the genuine camaraderie and good will with which they represented our College.  <br> <br>Thanks to our staff, Brad Smith and Margit Cruice, who so generously volunteered their weekend with me in order for us to make this experience possible, and additionally to our two ensemble leaders Andy Eastwood and Charlotte Bradshaw, who also attended to lead their ensembles. Thanks also to all of the instrumental teachers who have helped prepare our musicians in the leadup to the event. These performances will be repeated for our College community at the upcoming <em>Music Showcase Night</em> at The J. <br></p><div class="ms-rtestate-read ms-rte-embedcode ms-rte-embedil ms-rtestate-notify"><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/w5kTnV9gkhM" frameborder="0"></iframe> </div><p>Soul Collective performing at QCMF.<br></p><p><br> </p>

Students were selected on their application and submission to the Hospital.</span></p><p><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"> </span><br style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">The morning was broken into sessions aimed at providing learning opportunities with healthcare professionals in a clinical setting, in simulated environments and training scenarios so that we might gain an understanding of what it would be like to work inside a hospital and ask those more personal questions on not only the rewards of a career in Health but also the demands. This was a great experience as we also gained a broader idea of the employment opportunities in a hospital-based setting.</span><br style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"> </span><br style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">The final session was a Q & A opportunity with a panel of healthcare professionals in Medicine, Nursing, Allied Health and Non-clinical areas to ask questions specific to their role and their education pathways to reach that goal.</span><br style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"> </span><br style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">Overall, the day was definitely very worthwhile, and I would highly recommend it to other students to apply in 2019.</span><br style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"> </span><br style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"><em style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">Ava Foreman</em><br style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">Year 10 student </span> <br></p>

They competed with 9 items in a variety of sections alongside many strong troupes from schools from the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and Gold Coast. It was a brilliant day, rewarded by numerous awards for our technique, choreography, ensemble skills and performance level. Our Junior Troupe received 3</span><sup style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;">rd </sup><span style="text-align:justify;color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">place for their lyrical piece.

Our Senior Troupe’s emotive lyrical piece and Bob Fosse-inspired jazz received a Highly Commended. Tuesday’s mostly Year 7-10’s Dance Troupe also performed two pieces; a lyrical and a jazz piece, receiving excellent feedback from the adjudicators. Our final dance of the day, a multimedia work combining dance and video projection to explore body image held the audience in awe.

Student Achievementshttp://www.stteresa.qld.edu.au/school-news-features/Pages/-Student-Achievements.aspx Student Achievements<h2>​​​​​​Basketball in the USA!<br></h2><p><br> </p><p><img class="ms-rtePosition-1" alt="Flyn O'toole.jpg" src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Flyn%20O%27toole.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:430px;height:292px;" />Over the winter holidays I was given the opportunity to play against the top talent across the USA in the NY2LA SummerJam tournament in Milwaukee. My team was made up of kids from all around Australia and we were very competitive in this tournament finishing in the top 16 out of 50+ teams. The trip was very insightful for myself giving me the tools and avenue to pursue my dream of playing College level basketball in the States. I'd like to thank AUSA Hoops tour group for giving me a platform to showcase my talents and providing a pathway to "Dare the Dream."<br><br></p><p><em>Flyn</em><em> O'Toole - Year 12 student</em><br></p><h2><br><br></h2><p>​<br></p><p><br> </p><h2>Pierre de Coubertin Award <br></h2><p>​ <br></p><p><img class="ms-rtePosition-2" alt="Lily Mills.jpg" src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Lily%20Mills.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:450px;" />The Pierre de Coubertin Award recognises secondary school students who demonstrate values which are consistent with the Olympic Movement through participation in sporting activities. </p><p>A schools nominee must participate actively in the school's physical education program with a consistently positive attitude and must have represented the school in a sport. There are many students in our College who fulfil the criteria, however, each year the school is restricted to one nomination. <br></p><p>Congratulations to Lilly Mills (Year 12) as she has been awarded the Pierre de Coubertin Award for 2018. Over her time at the College Lilly has represented the school in a variety of sports. Through Lilly's involvement in traditionally male dominated sports, she has been and is, a role-model for all students. She lists her greatest sporting achievements as; U15 QLD Womens Cricket Captain and selection as a rookie for QLD Fire (State Women's Cricket) in 2017 and 2018.  <br></p><p><br> </p><h2><br></h2><h2><br></h2><h2><br></h2><h2><br></h2><h2>Meet Max Miller – Year 7 STCC Student</h2><p><br> </p><p><img class="ms-rtePosition-1" alt="IMG_0001.jpg" src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/IMG_0001.jpg" style="margin:5px;width:400px;height:317px;" />Winner of two NSW titles, 3rd place in QLD and 4th in Australia, Max Miller is known around the track as a serious Motocross racer and someone to keep an eye on. He is determined to make it to the big league and race internationally, despite having broken many bones. He’s already half way there having secured a major sponsorship from Kawasaki. The sponsorship grants him free bikes, equipment and travel, and if he wins the Australian title a bonus $1000, as well as being a part of the junior Kawasaki team.<br></p><p>Max started his motocross racing career at the young age of 5, when he was at a friend’s house and had his first ride. Realising that he was riding at the same speed as the NSW title holder, he fell in love with the sport. Miller trains every week for 11 hours showing real commitment to motocross racing. He is inspired by Chad Reed, an Australian Motor Cross racer who he wants to be like in the future. The St Teresa’s community wishes the very best for Max at the Australian titles in Tasmania in September where he will compete in the 13 year old category and give it his very best shot. Whatever happens at the titles, Max is a young man with a big future in Motocross and we are all proud of his achievements. </p><p><br> </p><p><br> </p><p><br><br></p><div><img class="ms-rtePosition-2" src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/7fb26d3e-df86-446b-a132-403e10305bbd.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:400px;height:400px;" /><br><p><br> </p></div><p><br>Congratulations to Year 9 student Grace Berry who was awarded Grand Champion Junior Rider at the Show Horse Council of Australasia National Championships.

The class was completing the first of three on-site event registration assessments as part of their Certificate II in Tourism. Following their briefing, the class settled in, answering questions, providing directions and registering competitors who ranged from enthusiastic four-year olds to mums and dads. The students enjoyed working with the other volunteers and developed an appreciation of the time and effort that goes into coordinating a successful event.
