READER'S CUP UPDATE
On Friday the 25th of May our Reader’s Cup Team attended a friendly competition at Malanda State Primary School. This friendly match included teams from a variety of fellow Catholic Education Schools and a number of State Schools. The six rounds of the competition were based on the same six texts that form the basis of the formal Reader’s Cup Challenge that our team will be competing in when they attend the Cairns competition in Week 9 of this term. It is extremely pleasing to announce that our team came out 3rd overall! They demonstrated a thorough knowledge of all six texts and displayed excellent teamwork skills to achieve this result. All of the work our team has done, and continues to do, will lead up to the final competition that is being held at Our Lady Help of Christians School in Earlville on the 14th June. In the lead up to the big competition, our team will continue to work hard on learning the texts inside and out!
The Far North Queensland regional school chess tournament was held on Thursday in Cairns. It was one of the biggest in the state this year with representatives from schools right across the region. Every St Teresa’s competitor scored points for our school, but, more importantly, every student said they met new people, learned lots about the game and had a really positive experience. A huge thank you to Nicole and Leigh for helping with transport and supervision.
SOCIAL JUSTICE CLUB NEWS
Thank you so much to the Social Justice students and their families for all the delicious, delightfully decorated cupcakes. This was our first official fundraiser for Project for Compassion. As you can see from the Gallery of photos the students thoroughly enjoyed the morning. After the teachers took the students out onto the oval to walk off the sugar rush before they went back into class to start lessons again.
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!
