It has already been an incredible start to learning this Term with the visit yesterday of well known author Aleesah Darlison. An amazing privilege for our Year 4 and 5 students to be able to work with Aleesah to better understand both the process and joy of writing. My thanks again to Romilly in Year 5 whose entry into the Premier’s Readers Challenge QSuper Competition won our College this unique immersion learning experience. The Yr 5 students who entered the competition by writing book reviews exemplify our motto of “daring to grow…”. Taking risks by having your work judged by highly qualified strangers is just one of the ways our students are learning to be the best they can be.
CRAZY SOCK DAY
On Friday 19th October we challenge all students to wear ‘crazy socks’ and bring a gold coin to sock it to poverty, by supporting the work of Catholic Mission in Myanmar. On this day students can wear crazy socks to school, not necessarily just on their feet. They are invited to think of creative ways to wear socks – as belts, ties, scarves, for example. Students in middle and senior years may prefer to wear a different tie. Let’s pair up with Catholic Mission, support the rights of ALL children to an education and Sock it to Poverty in Myanmar!
RELAY FOR LIFE
The Year 12 students are undertaking the Redcliffe Relay for Life this year on the 13th October. The students have set a goal of $2000 to raise as a team for the Queensland Cancer Council. If you would like to join us on the day please join the team or you can sponsor us via the link below.
Our page is http://fundraising.cancer.org.au/site/TR/RelayforLife/CCQLD?team_id=61440&pg=team&fr_id=5361 where it has all the options for you to consider. You will also find more information about the event and where the funds actually go.
