Health & Physical Education Day was celebrated this year with a Staff versus Student dodgeball game. Both teams were very competitive, with the student team (Year 12PE class) winning 3-1. All money raised was donated to Caritas. Staff are looking forward to the re-match.
On Friday 16 March, the Year 8s launched their 2018 theme in the Sophia Centre. This was expertly lead by the hard-working Year 8 Semester 1 Home Room Captains who created a series of role-plays exploring how we can strengthen a sense of unity and community amongst the Year 8 cohort.
Below is an extract written by Year 8 student Annabel Coleman who led a reflection on how Year 8 intend to live out their theme of compassion, empathy and hope.
This year we are striving to all have colossal, flickering flames of love. The only way to achieve this is to share our love and illuminate others’ light. Just by making small acts of support and kindness to the candles who have a faint flame, we can help those who feel displaced and fill them with love. This year’s theme is about helping others, but it is also about recognising and appreciating when someone shares their flame with you.
For our ‘Friday Flashback’ moment this week, we are transporting you all back to the Year 11 Semi Formal in 2000. If you recognise any of the MSM Alumni in these photos, please let us know.
Cordelia Gibson (Year 8) entered the draft to seek selection to play club nationals for water polo over Easter and was very successful in being selected to represent Queensland Country.
This competition is being held at the end of March in Albury and Wodonga. Congratulations Cordelia!
As part of the Positive Education Program 2018, all Year 11 students have been involved in a nine session Life Coaching Program. This culminated today in a guest presentation from Ms Amanda Wallas, former teacher of MSM and Life Coach. Students have been working on progressing an academic and personal goal throughout the program by adopting the GROW coaching model. They have also been involved in peer coaching each other. Ms Wallas encouraged students to continue with their goal striving and get into their ‘awesomeness’.
We would like to thank Ayuka, our Japanese intern from Nagoya University of Foreign Studies who has spent the last week at MSM. Ayuka not only enjoyed helping out in our Japanese language classes, but also observed many lessons in other subjects. We wish Ayuka every success in her teaching career.
Indigo Wood (Year 9) has been selected for the U15 Softball Brisbane representative team for this year. She will play in the State Championships in May.
Well done Indigo!
MSM’s annual pilgrimage to the French film festival movie extravaganza was well patronised with forty five of our students in Years 9 to 12 opting to attend the screening of ‘Belle et Sébastien, Le dernier chapitre’.
The film was very well received by both students and staff and we all look forward in anticipation to the great gems that will inevitably appear next year. Formidable!
