READER'S CUP UPDATE
It is with great pleasure that I can announce that out of a total of 46 schools, over 300 students, Zoe, Laura, Hasmin and Ella came 25th overall! The team did our school proud at the 2018 Reader’s Cup! This is an outstanding effort with this being the very first year that St Teresa’s have participated in the competition. Our team members demonstrated their knowledge of the six texts they have been studying to a very high level. In addition to this, the way the team represented our school was exceptional. You may have caught the coverage on Win News but if not, keep an eye out for a write up in the Cairns Post as they were there too. It was an honour to have worked with all four members of our team during the preparation for this competition. Well done on your fabulous achievement!
SOCIAL JUSTICE CLUB NEWS
Arcade game day was a fun and active day. Everybody had lots of fun and we were amazed at all the fun games there were. Kids went home with awesome prizes and smiles on their faces. We raised $20 for Project Compassion on the day, games were 10c to participate. Thanks everyone for attending.
On Wednesday 27th June we will have our pyjama and hot chocolate day to raise money for Project Compassion. As the term goes on the temperature is continuing to drop so we’ll really want to wear our warm pj’s and drink some delicious hot chocolate by Week 11!
