Students sit second-to-last QCS exams

VIC Visit

YEAR 11 tourism students were once again out and about in the Granite Belt. They recently visited the Stanthorpe Visitor Information Centre and its newest attraction, The Big Thermometer.

Southern Downs Regional Council Economic Development Officer, Jenny Sherrin, explained the centre's function and operations to students.

Volunteer Bev, from Law Dogs, also discussed the role and importance of volunteer staff to keep the centre open over weekends and public holidays to service the peak holiday times.

Their current unit teaches them all about the Granite Belt, what visitors to the area could see and do as well as meeting customer expectations.

Penultimate QCS

FORTY-THREE Year 12 students sat the second last QCS test last Tuesday and Wednesday.

Students have been specifically preparing for this crucial test since the beginning of Year 11.

"While the test is daunting, we felt fully prepared and ready to tackle the challenge," senior student Maddy Spencer said.

Thank you to Mrs Kelly and all of the staff involved in preparing students to do their best in these important exams.

Thanks you to the parents and carers who all support their children in achieving their best.

Students are to be commended on their application to each of the tests from start to finish.

As the saying goes - The main game of student achievement remains and we all commit to ensuring the main game remains the main game.

Hitting the right note

LAST Monday, musical maestro on the didgeridoo, Tjupurru, entertained Year 7 students as part of the Indigenous Engagement program.

Through storytelling and music, Tjupurru shared his inspiring personal journey, the history of his culture and the Djabera Djabera tribe and the expressions of Aboriginal art and music, enriching a deeper understanding of Indigenous culture. It was a great showcase of music.
