On Wednesday May 16, the Year 10 Japanese class enjoyed a delicious lunch at San Kai Japanese Restaurant in the heart of South Brisbane.
Mains such as Chicken Karaage, Chicken Teriyaki, Beef Yakiniku and Sushi were accompanied by miso soup, salad and rice. It was lovely to witness some students sampling Japanese foods and condiments (such as wasabi and miso soup) for the first time.
As a 2018 initiative, the Social Justice Council, lead by Alyssa Prichard, Gretel Mahoney and Rachel Shoshani, proposed illustrating MSM’s further commitment to social justice by participating in the MDA (Multicultural Development Australia) Luminous Lantern Parade on Friday 8th of June from 5pm-8pm at South Bank Parklands.
In preparation for this event, students from Year 9-12 participated in a lantern making workshop with the team from LightnUp Inc. The involvement in MDA LUMINOUS will provide an opportunity for MSM students to further their action in supporting the marginalized in society and highlight the issue of refugees and asylum seekers in the community. The LUMINOUS lantern parade is Queensland’s largest welcome event, using light and lanterns to symbolise hope and create welcome. This parade helps shed light of various forms of settlement in our diverse community.
Over the last three days MSM hosted the Institute of Positive Education (Geelong Grammar School) as they presented three conferences on Positive Education:
Embedding Character Strengths
Positive Teaching Practices
Implementing Positive Education.
The presenter was Justin Robinson, the inaugural Director of the Institute of Positive Education. School representatives from Qld Catholic, Independent and State schools participated to enhance their knowledge and understanding of positive education. A number of MSM staff also participated and furthered their own professional development in this area. Geelong Grammar School staff welcomed a number of MSM staff interested in this area eleven years ago, and is was an honour to reciprocate with our own hospitality over these three days.
Congratulations to Molly Hogan (Year 11) and Ella Hogan(Year 11), who have both been selected to represent Metropolitan North School Sport in the Basketball 16 – 18 years Girls competition at the Queensland School Sport State Championship at the Caloundra Indoor Stadium from Thursday 24 – Sunday 27 May 2018.
