Coming Up in Week 8

Thomas Ziebarth on the sax at the Brisbane Jazz Club last weekend.

Well done to the Big Band for their performance at the Brisbane Jazz Festival on Saturday. The boys were very professional and will be looking for their next gig as they are ready to take to the main stage of Birdland – in New York City! Also this week our Junior Choir performed in the Qld Youth Music Awards. Even though it was a long way to go to get to the festival, pizza at school before the bus ride made it bearable! In our first competitive performance, the Choir was awarded Bronze in their chosen category. Congratulations!

Da Vinci Decathlon

This week groups of students from Year 9, Year 7 and Years 5 and 6 students competed in the Queensland da Vinci Decathlon held at AB Paterson College. The Queensland da Vinci Decathlon is an academic interschool gala competition operated in the spirit of an Olympic Decathlon, with a variety of events of an academic nature. Students competed in the following disciplines: mathematics, chess, code breaking, engineering challenge, philosophy, creative producers, art and poetry, cartography and general knowledge.

We are pleased to announce that Year 5 came 2nd in cartography and Year 6 came 3rd in science and 2nd in English. The schools that participated came from the Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba and Gold Coast areas. Our teams have worked hard preparing for the event and they certainly did our College proud. They demonstrated all the habits of mind including striving for accuracy, thinking and communicating with clarity and precision as well as and creating, imagining and innovating. Congratulations to those who attended and thanks to Deborah Butler and Gayle Hollister for their organisation.
