This morning students engaged in the final session of the Year 7/11 Coaching Programme which has taken place over four sessions in Terms 3 and 4 during Pos-Ed. This initiative has involved the Year 11 students putting their skills to work and assisting a Year 7 student by being a Coaching Buddy for them to meet an academic goal. In the closing stages of the session today key students were recognised for their outstanding skills and commitment.
Congratulations to Ashleigh Mair (Year 11) who has been awarded a QCE Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Foundation scholarship for 2017-2018.
The funds used by QATSIF for these scholarships are sourced from the interest earned on the original capital built from the labour of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders under now-repealed laws. Preserving this capital means the toil of previous generations will have a direct benefit to the generations that follow. In this way, QATSIF will always stand as a permanent and positive legacy for the future.
