Senior pathwayshttp://www.stteresa.qld.edu.au/Learning/curriculum/Pages/default.aspx, http://www.stteresa.qld.edu.au/Learning/curriculum/Pages/default.aspxSenior pathwaysWithout a doubt, the most important aspect to secondary education is choosing a pathway beyond school. All St Teresa’s students embark on academic or vocational studies in Years 11 and 12. Our strong academic results reflect our tailored focus. Students learn to face challenges and are encouraged to be their very best self.

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.

Ballymore 7's Rugbyhttp://www.stteresa.qld.edu.au/school-news-features/Pages/Ballymore-7's-Rugby.aspxBallymore 7's Rugby<p>​​<img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Ballymore.jpg" alt="Ballymore.jpg" class="ms-rtePosition-2" style="margin:5px;width:500px;height:375px;" /><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">The Student Horizons All Schools Ballymore 7s is the final event on the rugby union calendar for St Teresa’s. With preseason beginning in late February, a finish in late September makes for a long, but spectacular year.</span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">The Ballymore 7s event is the perfect culmination and reward for the year’s efforts. It is offered only to members of our senior schoolboys and schoolgirls squads. It is a significant step up from the local SCSSRU competition with schools from around Queensland competing for places in the cup finals.</span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"> </span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><strong style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">Day 1 – Friday - Travel</strong><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">The young men and women of St Teresa’s 7’s set off for Ballymore on Friday afternoon of Week 3 excited and with full hearts knowing this would be some players last ever representation of St Teresa’s sport. After the team dinner, students kicked back to enjoy the simple things; each others company without technology, and were involved in some team bonding activities before resting up ahead of large weekend of contact sport.</span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"> </span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><strong style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">Day 2 – Saturday – Pool Rounds</strong><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">The girls kicked things off in early afternoon against Brigidine College and came away with a 26-21 victory though some fantastic support play. A good start. The boys then doubled down on the girl’s win; a comprehensive shut-out victory over Canterbury College 31-0. Our girls then went 2 for 2 in a very scrappy, hard fought win at the death, 14-12 against North Lakes. With pride on the line in a grudge match against St Johns Nambour, the boys were pure class defeating St Johns 36-5, running riot with an exposé of set plays. The girls last game came against a fiery Calamvale Community College which went back and forth for the full 14 minutes before a 24-20 win to the St Teresa’s She-Eagles. Unfortunately, two girls suffered injuries in the final 2 minutes ruling them out for the finals. The boys final game was heated. In true Teresa’s spirit, cool heads and determination lead to a 26-0 rampage of Michelton SHS.</span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"> </span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">With the final victory at 6:30pm, we had some hungry young people on our hands. Hungry young people who were riding high after both teams progressed onto the final day </span><strong style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">undefeated</strong><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"> and top of their pools. A group meal prepared by the teachers was on offer, and despite initial protests of poison, they consumed batches.</span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"> </span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><strong style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">Day 3 – Sunday – Finals</strong><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">The boys rode into their semi-final against North Lakes full of confidence. Understandably, as they dominated their opposition 36-0. With only 5 points scored against them in the tournament, defence was complimenting a lethal counter-attack. The girls, unfortunately, couldn’t keep pace after losing 3 players the day before. They got pummelled in the early morning heat by Southport SHS 0-33.</span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">Confidence took a big hit, but knowing we had a 5 hour break between games we retreated back to the hotel and park area that surrounds Kelvin Grove. Players spent their time hanging out in the park, eating, passing footies, and getting their mindset right for their respective finals.</span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"> </span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">The boys Cup Final against Ormiston College was up first, a seesawing affair with some uncharacteristic mistakes sneaking into the boys game. As time wound down scores were locked at 12-12. However, as are the rules of a tournament of this nature, in the event of a draw; first try-scorer wins. The boys were bitterly disappointed to lose on a technicality, but with the girls game next rallied to cheer them on.</span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"> </span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">The girls Plate Final against North Lakes was going to be tough. Deflated after a drubbing in the semi, knowing they only just scraped through against North Lakes in the pool round, and lastly that they only had 2 substitutes, was going make things tough. Tough it was. Easily one of the most gritty showings of 7s I’ve seen by a girls side. Exhausted, playing hurt, the girls scored a try with 30 seconds left on the clock (15-10 to St Teresa’s). The girls had played the entire second half with no subs due to injuries, and on the last play of the game a breakaway try from North Lakes sealed a disappointing end.</span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"> </span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">The reaction from the boys and girls was beautiful. A full team huddle screaming the College sport prayer. Tears were flowing, and emotions were high after a courageous 2 days of 7s. It was the easiest drive home as our young men and women were shattered and sleeping for the full 2 hours.</span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"> </span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">A big weekend and an even bigger display of College Spirit. Thank you to the students who put in perspective for your teachers just how amazing our young people are. Thank you to Ben Brown, Sharon Lucht, Nicole Ruthven, Phoebe Langbridge, and Hailey O’Brien for your amazing support in this event. </span> <br></p><div class="ms-rtestate-read ms-rte-embedcode ms-rte-embedil ms-rtestate-notify" unselectable="on"><iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/5lstZZbNnII" frameborder="0"></iframe> </div><p><em>The motivation huddle at Ballymore 7's</em><br><br></p>

The trails really did highlight the courage of our students in taking creative risks for their audiences. Another highlight was the opportunity for our most recent drama ensemble to share with parents and friends the original work we performed onstage in Brisbane this term with the Queensland Theatre Company; despite it being at 8.30pm towards the end of a very long day and even with so much other festival noise invading their space, these students were focused and professional, and really appreciated seeing so many crowd into the drama room taking an interest in their creative work.</span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"> </span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">Thank you to all the parents who have sent lovely messages and who had a chance to catch up with Arts staff on the night. It has also been really gratifying that we had quite a number of students and families attending from other schools in the region, having heard about our program and the success of our ensembles, as well as families of our new Year 7s coming along for the first time! </span></p><p><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><br></span></p><p><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(7).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (7).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;" /> <img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(10).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (10).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;" /><br></span></p><p><img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(19).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (19).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;" /> <img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(14).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (14).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;" /><br></p><p><img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(15).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (15).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;" /> <img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(5).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (5).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;" /><br></p><p><img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(20).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (20).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;" /> <img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(11).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (11).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;" /><br></p><p><img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(2).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (2).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;" /> <img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(16).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (16).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;" /><br></p><p><img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(6).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (6).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;" /> <img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(1).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (1).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;" /><br></p><p><img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(21).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (21).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;" /> <img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(13).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (13).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;" /><br></p><p><img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(12).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (12).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;" /> <img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(18).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (18).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;" /><br></p><p><img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(17).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (17).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:419px;" /> <img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(4).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (4).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:420px;" /><br></p><p><img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(9).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (9).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:419px;" /> <img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(8).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (8).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:421px;" /></p><p><img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(3).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (3).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:294px;" /> <img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Off%20The%20Wall%20(22).jpg" alt="Off The Wall (22).jpg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:301px;" /><br><br></p>
The Scene Projecthttp://www.stteresa.qld.edu.au/school-news-features/Pages/Drama-with-QTC.aspxThe Scene Project<p>​ <img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Scene%20Project%20(1).jpg" alt="Scene Project (1).jpg" class="ms-rtePosition-1" style="margin:10px;width:400px;height:375px;" /><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">Last week our third drama ensemble 7-12 represented our College in drama at state level, performing in the highly creative and educational </span><em style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">The Scene Project</em><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"> with Queensland Theatre Company on their magnificent new Billie Brown stage in Brisbane. Our students were the first actors in Queensland to ‘tread those boards’. This Queensland ‘project’ was created by Queensland Theatre Company in 2016 and we have had the privilege of being the only school in this region to participate these last 3 years. The ‘project’ involves QTC having commissioned a leading Queensland playwright to create a new playscript, which is then explored and workshopped by participating schools. Each school can then stage and share their own very different interpretations of the same work. We all then analyse the interpretations and staging and their impacts on the audience.</span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"> </span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">The special things about our work this year in this event is that it was developed from a collaboration between our most seasoned drama ensemble performers (all of whom had won awards for the College earlier this year) and a group of new actors, most of whom had not ever been onstage in front of an audience before. This year we worked with Merlynn Tong’s </span><em style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">Good Grief, </em><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">a play exploring intercultural mythologies dealing with love, loss and grief – an inspiring and challenging piece.</span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"> </span><br style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;"><span style="color:#404040;font-family:helvetica;font-size:14px;text-align:justify;">After a  three month lead time, creating and rehearsing period, including a specialist workshop here at College with a QTC actor, we headed down to Brisbane last Monday at 6am, to perform at Queensland Theatre in Brisbane, alongside QTC’s own professional production of our same play. Our work opened day 1 of the three week festival, with us giving  expression to our own mythology – the concept of a tunnel of light bridging life and the after-life, and the grief of letting go of the life we know and hold so precious. Our play was performed only in hand-held torch light and was praised as “exquisite” by Travis MacFarlane of QTC – a compliment we will all long remember. Well done to Cooper Wells, Ava Moroney, Ava Baker, Ruby McIlroy, Isabella Baker, and to our new Year 10 Chorus – Rubi Hamlin, Tully Johnson, Eliza Safe, Elijah Smith, Dylan Swainson, Zach Welman, and to Flynn Boreham for attending in support. Thanks also to the parents for making the early start and late return possible. What a wonderful experience. <img src="/school-news-features/PublishingImages/Scene%20Project%20(3).jpeg" alt="Scene Project (3).jpeg" style="margin:5px;width:300px;height:200px;" /></span> <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>

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>
