2021 Year 12 Celebrations of Academic Success

On the top floor of the Calamvale Hotel with a 360 degree view of our community, we cheered our 2021 graduates’ academic success in ATAR, Certificate and IB Diploma pathways.  It was March 28 and we invited our past students back for a celebration of their success, just prior to their university year and entry to the worforce.  Sally Hoang was our 2021 Dux with an amazing 43 IB Diploma score and a Griffith Vice-Chancellor Scholarship and James Lee achieved an outstanding 97.1 ATAR.  Both students were surrounded by the success of their peers, with the IB cohort exceeding world averages, languages students achieving scores of 6.6 (out of 7), bilingual Diplomas, and a diverse group of university and TAFE courses including a number of scholarships secured with successful school achievements.  It was a lovely night and we thank the parents of this cohort for sharing these achievements with us and the students.

CCC Facilities New Build, Refresh and Playground Update

 

We have handover of the top floor of our new building housing Digital Design and Technology complete with robotic labs, Lego walls, dedicated collaboration spaces and 6 beautiful new classrooms with the best views in the College.  Video coming.

Elsewhere in the newsletter you will see the $52 000 refurbishment of NaturePlay taking a great space damaged by storms to the next level of sophistication – water troughs, permanent creek bed, climbing frame and sandpit. Likewise, a further $50 000 of both Possum and Koala playgrounds, replacing artificial turf and refreshing this treasured playground space. Over the school holidays, remodelling and improvements were made to our Junior School Nature Play space. With a new and improved creek bed, boarded by gardens and the addition of three established trees for shade, this nature play space continues to be an area of great interest and enjoyment to our students. Children play together, interacting with many forms of nature, using their imagination and creativity. Water, sand, natural loose parts like leaves, branches and logs all provide endless opportunities for play.

The College, whilst not flooded sustained significant water damage through roof leaks and many ceilings have been replaced in the last three weeks as well as some carpets.  It has been a logistical nightmare from which we are now emerging, just waiting on delivery of some final items and their installation.  We thank both our students and teachers for their patience during this period of rectification.  Next week the library will be closed for a week to complete works in that building.  It will all soon be finished.

Multicultural Festival

Thank you for an amazing day that celebrated the beauty of our College’s diversity.  True to form and not surprisingly at all, the ceremony leaders were given the opportunity to speak in their first language, demonstrating the beauty of diversity right there.

Congratulations on a fabulously successful and important event in which every member of our College had the opportunity to participate, share and enjoy as well as learn and discover.

Thank you thank you to the twenty staff members who ran stalls with students, the support staff who filled some gaps and supported others to do their work, the amazing hospitality and catering team who fashioned our own Eat Street (team of thousands here so I will do a separate thank you), Year 12 boys in hospitality, the Tech guys, the Facilities Crew (Dirk).    What a way to end the term!

Calamvale Wolves News

The Calamvale Wolves have now selected their 2021 High Performance Sporting squads for Volleyball, Futsal, Basketball and Netball. This is truly an exciting moment in sport for the College. These squads are the first in our new era of sport and are already preparing for upcoming tournaments. We have our Volleyball squads attending Sandstorm Beach Volleyball Complex to prepare for the Volleyball Queensland Beach Cup. We have 12 teams entering this tournament which will likely have CCC as the highest entered team. We also have six Futsal squads who are preparing for the Brisbane Metro All-School Futsal Tournament to be held at Nissan Arena and Oxley Futsal Club. Our Netball girls have been travelling to Nissan Arena to train in a elite facility, and will soon be joined by Queensland Firebirds players for specialist coaching. Finally our Basketball squads are in the early stages of preparation for their CBSQ Tournaments later in the year by travelling to Hibiscus Sports Complex. Our Varsity Boys will also be entering the United Sports League in term 2 which is a Monday afternoon tournament.

Our new training jerseys and training attire through elite company BLK are being ordered this week and we cannot wait to see our teams rocking their new stylish look.
