We began the week with a celebration of the Arts led by our music team: Jess Gill, Sarah Schmeider, Angela Palalagi and Sara Schmeider’s mum Marcia Ruhle who came from Toowoomba to accompany Junior Choir. Our students have sensational talent that has been harnessed and honed by devoted teachers – thank you for giving them the opportunity to be their very best.
First time ever we had an impromptu CCC Combined Choir AND a promo for Matilda Jr! It was a great night!
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!
multicultural Festival sep 2021
Last week, two teams of APEX students competed in ANSTO’s National Science Week Hackathon. This national event brought fast-paced innovation into our classrooms with students using the design thinking process. Students worked with experts in the field to pitch a solution to food waste in busy families. Mentors provided invaluable feedback to our students and also allowed us to gain insight into the real world of design thinkers.
The creativity, curiosity and clever designs produced by the teams has left the APEX family very proud. We can’t wait to enter again next year.
This Friday, 15 APEX students are entering an 800-word essay into the UNSW BRAGG Writing Contest. APEX students are working with senior mentors to develop an explanation of the science, technology, engineering, and maths behind some of their favourite, everyday experiences. The mentor-mentee relationship has enabled senior students to step into leadership roles and give back to the Calamvale community. Additionally, the mentees have had the opportunity to develop positive relationships across the year levels, gaining insight into the senior secondary experience and seeing where their science writing skills will continue to develop. These students have taken curiosity to the next level, working in their own time and at APEX Accelerators to discover and describe the science behind something they’re personally interested in. These budding writers have a chance to win up to $500 in book vouchers as well as the chance to be published in several widely circulated science journals! We wish our writers all the best as they finalise their pieces this week.
