Marist Youth Leadership Summithttp://www.stteresa.qld.edu.au/school-news-features/Pages/Marist-Youth-Leadership-Summit.aspxMarist Youth Leadership Summit<p><img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/MYLS%20(2).png" alt="MYLS (2).png" style="margin:5px;" /><br></p><p>​<span style="color:#202020;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">On the last weekend of the summer holidays, Jo and I along with our Ministry Captains, Jenna and Izzy, travelled down to Brisbane to partake in the 2021 Marist Leadership Summit over the course of three days. Thanks to our trusty bus driver Chris Lysaght, we arrived safely on Saturday to a lunch at Marist College Ashgrove, with all of the other leaders from thirteen Marist schools around Queensland. Over the weekend we participated in workshops to develop self-awareness of our leadership as an individual, and also different types of leadership that will help us to work in group settings. As individual leaders we realized the busy year ahead of us, however, being around those who will be facing the same path this year, we made strong connections and became more aware of the Marist spirit that runs through and connects each of our schools. There were many opportunities to have fun, with Jenna and Izzy’s ukulele rendition of ‘Baby’ by Justin Bieber winning second prize in the talent show! However, we are also excited to share and use the leadership tools that we gained over the summit as well as develop the connections formed with schools from all around Queensland.</span><br style="color:#202020;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"><strong style="color:#202020;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">Francis Cogill</strong><br style="color:#202020;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"><em style="color:#202020;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">College Captain</em>​</p>
100K ECP Projecthttp://www.stteresa.qld.edu.au/school-news-features/Pages/100K-ECP-Project.aspx100K ECP Project<p><span style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/100K%20ECP%20(2).jpg" alt="100K ECP (2).jpg" style="margin:5px;" /><br></span></p><p><span style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">2021 sees the 100k entrepreneur classroom project enter its second year under the watchful eye of Mr Dan Neven. His desire to make middle school Business as real world as possible is challenging students to foster an entrepreneurial mindset. Eco-friendly and sustainability are core values underpinning the project as students employ their creativity to make positive changes to our world through the creation of a product and pitching its benefits to the world. This week the Year 9’s have had their entrepreneurial skills truly tested as they made their pitches to a Shark Tank in Barungam. It was obvious to all present that the interwoven environmental focus was central to each pitch and that was reflected in the feedback from our expert Shark Tank; Tomas Piccini the Program Officer, Global Engagement and Entrepreneurship at the University of Queensland; Julien Cahn from Business Mentors Noosa and Kym Foster from Foster Mediation. The latter lauded a whole new set of 2021 students who have embraced the entrepreneurial mindset and let their imaginations soar, so the goal, to raise 100k for charity through targeted sales, remains viable. If you want to see some of the products that were pitched, the official landing page for the project is </span><a href="http://www.100kecp.com/" target="_blank" style="color:#a4343a;text-decoration-line:underline;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">www.100kecp.com</a><span style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"> </span></p><p><br></p><p><span style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"></span><img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/100K%20ECP%20(4).jpg" alt="100K ECP (4).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:225px;" />​ <img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/100K%20ECP%20(1).jpg" alt="100K ECP (1).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:225px;" /><br></p>
Pinbarren & Barungam Openinghttp://www.stteresa.qld.edu.au/school-news-features/Pages/Official-Opening.aspxPinbarren & Barungam Opening<p>​<br></p><div>It is not every day we have the pleasure of opening a new building. It was with a sense of ceremony that we held the official opening and blessing of the new Barungam Centre and the refurbished Pinbarren. The Barungam Centre, a lecture theatre holding up to 250 people provides a space for guest speakers, parent evenings and whole cohort presentations. The name Barungam, meaning “listening and learning place” in the Gubbi Gubbi language, was provided by local Gubbi Gubbi, Kabi Kabi Traditional Custodian, Lyndon Davis. The centre features a stunning artwork by Lyndon, highlighting the relationship between the sea eagles and the red mullet season.<br></div><div><br></div><div>The Pinbarren, originally a sports hall that began its life as a half-court under cover area, offers an air-conditioned indoor sports facility with a full-size stage, giving the whole College a place to gather, perform and play sport. <br></div><div><br></div><div>After a Welcome to Country by the Gubbi Gubbi dance troupe, the Archbishop of Brisbane, the Most Reverend Mark Coleridge, celebrated the Opening Mass and Blessing. It was a fitting celebration attended by an array of special guests including Brisbane Catholic Education Executive Director, Ms Pam Betts, founding Principal, Alain Pitot, the builders, architects and several of the top performing students from the 2020 graduating class. <br></div><div><br></div><div>Take a look at the highlights in the video below. <br><br></div><div><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/Cjhc0nf5I3s" frameborder="0"></iframe> </div><br></div><p><br><br></p>
Luke Anear Visithttp://www.stteresa.qld.edu.au/school-news-features/Pages/Luke-Anear-Visit.aspxLuke Anear Visit<p>​<img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Luke%20Anear%20visit%20(3).jpg" alt="Luke Anear visit (3).jpg" style="margin:5px;" /><br></p><p><span style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">On Wednesday 19th August we hosted Luke Anear in the College. Luke is a former covert surveillance private investigator who built an international, billion-dollar business from his suburban garage in Townsville. Luke is the CEO and Founder of SafetyCulture, which created the world’s most used checklist app, iAuditor. Over 600 million checks are conducted through iAuditor each year by over 27,000 organisations. SafetyCulture currently employs over 370 people across Australia, United Kingdom, United States and the Philippines.</span><br style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><span style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"> </span><br style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><span style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Luke’s visit is one of many learning enrichment opportunities couched within the Year 9 Business Studies elective, and the Entrepreneurial Classroom Project (ECP). Current Year 9 Business students were afforded the opportunity to showcase their products to Luke, ask questions and receive feedback. Five groups of students then made a pitch to Luke where he provided expert guidance and advice about ‘where to from here’ for their products, an experience that I am sure students will long remember.</span><br style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><span style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"> </span><br style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><span style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">Current Business Studies students (9-12) were also invited along to a presentation by Luke. He spoke of his journey to success and the trials and tribulations of owning a start-up. Luke’s rich life experience and his authentic demeanour made his talk accessible to all students. He challenged students to realise their potential by unlocking their creative mind, rather than focusing on the skills they may or may not have. He spoke to the fact that there is always someone out there who has the skills you are after! Luke explained to students the importance of being comfortable with the feeling of incompetence or not knowing all the answers. It is the people who ‘outwork’ others to find the answers or solutions that make a difference and become successful.</span><br style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><span style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"> </span><br style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><span style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;">We look forward to future opportunities to work with Luke as the Business department of the College continues to grow and provide opportunities for students to develop and aspire to be a person who makes a positive change in our world.</span><br></p><p><span style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><br></span></p><p><span style="color:#202020;font-family:arial, "helvetica neue", helvetica, sans-serif;font-size:14px;"><img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Luke%20Anear%20visit%20(1).jpg" alt="Luke Anear visit (1).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:400px;" /> <img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Luke%20Anear%20visit%20(2).jpg" alt="Luke Anear visit (2).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:400px;" /><br></span></p>
Air Vice-Marshal visithttp://www.stteresa.qld.edu.au/school-news-features/Pages/Air-Vice-Marshal-visit.aspxAir Vice-Marshal visit<p>​<span style="color:#202020;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">​Recently some of our Year 9 – 12 Maths and Physics students had the opportunity to engage with Air Vice-Marshal Steve ‘Zed’ Roberton as he shared how maths and physics is used every day in a fighter pilot’s life. Zed is a Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Category ‘A’ Fighter Pilot who has been presented a range of awards including Chief of Air Force Commendation, the Distinguished Service Cross, and an Order of Australia.</span><br style="color:#202020;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"><br style="color:#202020;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;"><span style="color:#202020;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;">During his presentation Steve showed photographs and videos from throughout his career and clearly explained how maths and physics was an essential component of his day. Whether it was withstanding the G-Force in a simulator, refuelling airplanes in mid-air or landing a plane on an aircraft carrier at night, each example was easy to follow. Students grasped the importance of understanding basic concepts that could develop into more complex concepts, and the value of estimating. Zed also stressed to the students that he was not top of his class in any of these subjects and that his ease of use with maths and physics concepts occurred through his study and work after high school.

It was lovely to receive this message about two of our Year 9 students and what they are doing.​<br></p><p><br>"We have been very fortunate to have your students Lizzie Kelly and Tayte Ellis volunteer to coach our girls’ netball team.  Throughout the season, as parents, we have been repeatedly impressed by Lizzie and Tayte’s organization, reliability and coaching skills.  Lizzie and Tayte never missed a training session except for when they went on Yr. 9 camp, and even then, they checked in and offered to send through some drills and gave us parents a list of who was to practise their goal shooting.  Our coaches arrived early at every game, warmed up the team, positions were previously organized and then they refereed the games.<br><br>We parents have been in awe of Lizzie and Tayte all season, demonstrating maturity beyond their years.  As a bonus, they have been fantastic role models to our girls; we witnessed their patient, kind, organized, calm, positive and encouraging manner every week.  Every single Year 4 girl in the team has absolutely loved their netball season and the game of netball – entirely thanks to Tayte and Lizzie.<br><br>We have all felt incredibly blessed to have had your students volunteer their time to give so much to our girls.  They learnt netball skills, but also a lot more."​</p><br><p><br></p><h2>Young Endeavour Adventures<br></h2><p>​<img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Frankie.jpg" alt="Frankie.jpg" class="ms-rtePosition-2" style="margin:5px;width:400px;height:350px;" />On the 15th April, Year 11 student, Frankie Morris joined 25 other young Australians aged between 16 and 24, on the quayside of Sydney Naval Port. They went on to spend the next 11 days at sea, along with a Naval crew on board the tall ship, Young Endeavour. During the course of this trip, everyone was required to climb the ship's mast that soars 35 metres high, in daylight and darkness. They learned how to set and furl sails, tacking the boat at all hours of the night, basic sailing skills, navigating and steering the helm. They were required to keep watch throughout the day and night, and the young people even took charge of the ship for 24 hours. On the final night of this adventure, they slept under the stars before waking at 3.30am to attend the ANZAC Dawn Service at Nobby Beach, Newcastle. Frankie has now been asked to be an Ambassador for the Young Endeavour Youth Programme. </p><p><br></p><p>​<br></p><p>​ <br></p><p><br><br>​​<br><br></p>
