Nicole Drynan (Year 7) has been selected to run a leg of the Commonwealth Games baton relay. She will be running on Friday March 30.
She was chosen due to her dedication to dance. In 2017 she was accepted into three dance companies. She also performed at QPAC and the Brisbane Convention Centre. Nicole trains for over twenty hours a week and also gives up much of her school holidays to her training.
This honour is due reward for her dedication and commitment. Well done Nicole!
The second round of the Queensland Debating Union commenced last night for our Year 9 and Year 11 teams. Both Year 9 teams secured narrow wins arguing the affirmative side of ‘That students should spend one day a week learning about trades’. The negative teams were both from boys’ schools – Marist College Ashgrove and Brisbane Boys College.
Our Year 11 team won against Somerville House arguing the affirmative side of ‘That local communities should be able to cap the number of tourists that enter their regions’.
Our students have embraced Point of Information debating (challenges can come from the opposing team while the speaker is delivering her/his material).
Our Friday Flashback moment for this week takes us back to our Beirne Cup success in 1969. If you can share any stories about this sporting success or about the Alumni pictured, please let us know.

All students from Year 7–Year 10 participated in MSM Reads this morning during Period 1. The library hosted interested Year 9 & 10 students at our inaugural Book Tasting event.
The tables were set up like a restaurant and every five minutes the students moved on to a different course. Over the period, they “tasted” mystery, science fiction, dystopian, romance, relationship and fantasy genres. The students were very enthusiastic and excited to be introduced to books that they may never have picked up to try before. It was a wonderful success with all those involved borrowing out many new titles and asking when we would be hosting another event.

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.
