To celebrate Humanities Day our students partook in a number of fun activities. There was a student versus teacher history cahoot, match the country, flag, map and artefact, drawing your name in Egyptian hieroglyphics (cartouche), completing world jigsaw puzzles and for those more adventurous, completing the clues relating to the school treasure map! Additionally some year levels took part in both the History competition (Australia wide) and Geography competition (worldwide). We eagerly await the results.
On Wednesday evening, our Year 11 and Year 12 Theatresports team, The Untitled, made it through to the quarter finals of their competition.
Amelia Aspros, Mia Gould, Bernie Ryan, Gen Ryan, Lara Wenham and Ruth Boyle demonstrated skills in improvisation and teamwork. Congratulations to the whole team on their success against tough competition.
Twelve Year 9 students, along with Ms Boch, attended Altitude Day 2018 on Wednesday May 30. Altitude Day is an annual one-day event created to empower Year 9 students during this important stage in their school journey.
Through inspirational talks and energising group activities, students learn how to become active and inspiring leaders of their school and community. Students gain advice about good choices, how to build confidence and how to make a difference whilst forming a strong network of peers amongst other schools. Students begin to truly understand what it means to be a leader.
MSM has been successful in securing the services of Olympic athlete and Commonwealth Games medallist, Cedric Dubler to our Track & Field Coaching team.
Cedric is a decathlete, meaning he is very experienced in all events and he will be assisting our students specifically with throws and jumps. Athletics training starts next week, on Tuesday and Thursday 6.30 am-7.45 am & 3.30 pm-5.00 pm.
The results from the first day of the da Vinci Decathlon are in! Very well done to both of our teams.
Our Year 9 team came 1st in the Engineering section and the Ideation section. Meanwhile our Year 10 students came 1st in the Science section and 3rd in the Art and Poetry section.
The theme this year for Library & Information Week was ‘Find yourself in a Library.’ To celebrate, the MSM Library hosted our own Maze Quest, challenging our participants to find a series of quotes from the novel, Maze Runner, hidden around the library.
Our ‘runners’ needed to follow a map of the library to locate each quote. Our winners were Scarlett Blasl (7C), Emily Draper (7E), Cate Gaskell (8D) and Christine Rowell (8C).
Our sixteen Year 9 & Year 10 students are currently giving their all in the da Vinci Decathlon. This academic competition is designed to challenge and stimulate the minds of school students. Go MSM!
The Cross Country squad attended a development camp at the Gold Coast Recreation centre at Tallebudgera last weekend. All athletes were put through their paces, which involved a number of runs and fitness test to finalise team selection.

On Thursday May 24, ten MSM Year 10 French students joined with other French students from schools in Brisbane to participate in a French Immersion experience.
They sang, mimed, played games and did activities all completely in French! C’était fantastique!
